**RELEASE DAY BLITZ - REVIEW & EXCERPT** The Way Back Home by Carmen Jenner

The Way Back Home

Author: Carmen Jenner

Genre: Military Romance

Release Date: May 29, 2017


August Cotton shouldn’t be here. When a tragic accident

calls him home to Magnolia Springs, this returned Veteran adds his parents to

the list of things he’s lost in recent years, right along with his IED

detection dog and his left leg. As the sole guardian of his four-year-old

sister, August must rely on his Marine training in raising a tiny hellion who’s

as stubborn as he is. But the Corps could never prepare him for this. Nor could

they prepare him for Olivia Anders, a woman who’ll stop at nothing to get her


As owner of Paws for Cause, Olivia is no stranger to the

broken men and women who return home from war. She’s no stranger to broken dogs

either. In fact, she’s made it her mission to pair the two and enrich both of

their lives, but pairing ornery and aloof August Cotton will take some work.

The last thing August wants is some pushy southern woman occupying his parents’

bed and breakfast and forcing him to open up about the hell he narrowly

escaped, but that’s exactly what Olivia intends.

They complete one another, and yet they can’t stand to be in

the same room.

Can Olivia make this hardened Marine feel again and finally

show his heart the way back home?

*** Intended for a mature 18+ audience only. This book may

My Review:

This story is definitely one that brings out the emotions.

We meet August and Olivia, two people with horrific pasts that are always haunting them. Olivia is in Magnolia Springs to open a centre called Paws for Cause, a place where ex Marines can find a furry companion that can help them battle PTSD.
 I just love Olivia and her sassy personality, she's one tough chick and she's not afraid to show it. She impacted so many lives in this story.
August just flat out refuses any of Olivia's help and tries to battle the demons alone. But we do see glimpses of a sweet, caring man. It's not hard to see why there's so much attraction there.

From start to finish this story had me completely, I finished within a few hours cause I just couldn't put it down (I had a kid free day, yay!).
These characters were unique and so easy to fall in love with, I just adored them so much! Carmen Jenner has written such a beautiful story and I highly recommend "one-clicking" it.



“You know, if you want to see me naked and sweaty, all you have to do is

ask, darlin’.”

“I do not . . . I wasn’t . . .” My words are stolen from me as he stalks

forward with a maddening smirk on his face. “What are you doing?”

“Getting tired of waiting for you to be okay with this.”

“August, we talked about boundaries.” I press my hand to his chest

because he's too close, and I can't think straight with the heady scent of his

sweat and sandalwood soap distracting me. It wasn't my intention to run my hand

over that sweat, to feel the hard-won muscle beneath, but here I am, petting

him as if he's my favorite kitty.

“No. You talked about boundaries. I told you I was gonna fight, and I

ain’t above fightin’ dirty.”

“How dirty?” I breathe.

August’s lips curl up into a smile. “So dirty.”

Both hands snake around my waist and he lifts me onto the counter,

wedging his hips between my thighs. He hooks a finger in the sash and unties my

robe as if he were opening a gift made just for him. I wrap my legs around his

hips to pull him closer, and that’s all the admission he needs. He threads a

hand through my hair and pulls my neck back to expose the tender flesh to his

mouth. I close my eyes and whisper his name as my whole body turns to flame,

starved for the oxygen that only his touch can bring. His hot mouth trails down

my neck, his hands cup my breasts, squeezing, kneading, and I slide a hand

between us, into the waistband of his shorts. I take his hard length in my

hand, stroking him from base to tip. August grunts as he pushes my negligee out

of the way with frenzied hands. His fingers find me bare and exposed with no


“So fucking’ dirty,” he groans, wetting his lips.
