Review ~ Deploy: Marine Romance: Military Romance, Rawlings Novel by Jamie Magee

Deploy: Marine Romance: Military Romance, Rawlings Novel

eARC received via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review

Release Date: November 7th 2016

Publisher: Self-published


The missing, the murder, the cover up, the abuse, all of it should've been enough to divide and test the love between Declan and Justice, but it was nothing compared to the hell they wreaked on each other’s hearts. 
Fighting for what she loves is a war Justice cannot afford to lose...her Marine told her to fight.

My Opinion

This book wasn't what I expected. The cover and title drew me in and I was looking forward to some kind of military romance. What I got in the end is something I'm not sure about.

I just didn't get this book. I can't explain why, but I just didn't understand what it was meant to be. Was it a military romance? A suspense? A murder story? There was no clear theme that stood out. It all felt a bit jumbled, and it made for a hard read. I struggled constantly to engage with the characters and the plot.

For me, I didn't buy into it. Everything seemed so exaggerated and convoluted. There wasn't a depth to the motives for most of the characters, and I didn't understand the reasons behind the family feuds. Moreover, I didn't buy into the relationship.

Everything happened too quickly or too slowly in this book. Large chunks of time were missed out and I'm not sure the timeline added up, but pacing was an issue for me.

Overall, I wanted to like this book, but I just couldn't get into it. I felt it was too confused about what it was meant to be and the main story arch wasn't clear enough. The ending just blurred things even more too.
