Summary

"There is not a doubt in my mind that this book will be one of the top books of 2018 for me.” —5 stars, Julie from Hey Girl HEA

The most brazen terrorist attack in history. A country bent on revenge. A love affair cut short. A heart that never truly heals.


I knew on the day of the attack that our lives were changed forever. What I didn’t know then was that I’d never see John again after he deployed. One day he was living with me, sleeping next to me, making plans with me. The next day he was gone.

That was five years ago. The world has moved on from that awful day, but I’m stuck in my own personal hell, waiting for a man who may be dead for all I know. At my sister’s wedding, I meet Eric, the brother of the groom, and my heart comes alive once again. 

The world is riveted by the capture of the terrorist mastermind, brought down by U.S. Special Forces in a daring raid. Now I am trapped between hoping I’ll hear from John and fearing what’ll become of my new life with Eric if I do. 

From a New York Times bestselling author, Five Years Gone, a standalone contemporary, is an epic story of love, honor, duty, unbearable choices and impossible dilemmas.

    I’m a fan of Mrs. Force’s Fatal series, and each book gives you a complete story within a story. This book dragged to the end with a lot of filler that didn’t advance the story line, and really just a set the reader up to sell another book. Reminded me of the YA romances that I’ve come to avoid. Disappointing!

    What an amazing story! This book is a page turner from chapter 1. Definitely NOT the “Military Romance” some people imagine it to be. Such a refreshing story that has never been told before, the characters keep you on the edge of your seat the entire book! I definitely cried during this read but it’s because the characters pull you in and you can feel their emotion through Marie’s words! This book is a must read and totally worth the few dollars to purchase!

    This was a well written book that was a pleasant read. Quite honestly she ended up with the wrong guy, in my opinion, but I enjoyed the book as a whole.
