    So I read this back-to-back with Book 1 and I feel like I'm binge-watching a series. Like a second season, Book 2 features a bunch of new characters which I all appreciated while some characters have sadly (but I guess inevitably) fallen out of the spotlight. I missed Henry, Jack and Ruby a lot, because I really liked the dynamic in the first book. Out of the new characers, I liked Fran Milton and Jesse Garland best (his mother intrigues me).

Also, I'd like to see more of Warren and Wesley, maybe they'll appear some more. Alexa Kang did ample research for this and it showed: the accounts of Anthony in military training were real and humorous, and very entertaining. On the down-side, this installment had a lot of letters, which could have dragged if I didn't breeze through these books so quickly. Once again, everything was nice and fluffy, and I'm pretty confident everyone will make it out okay in the end and I will still be touched by all the positivity in here. Overall I'm really happy with how this series is turning out but I'd really like a release date for Book 4 because with number 3 having been released last week I might be in for a long wait, and I'm not good with patience.

    As much as I enjoyed Rose of Anzio-Moonlight, I truly loved this book. The author’s writing style is engaging. She writes some of the most romantic love scenes I have read. I don’t mean scenes involving sex, but scenes of two people in love expressing their deepest emotions in words and actions towards each other. I could sense the depth of love between Anthony and Tessa throughout the book.

The author’s writing style is engaging. She writes some of the most romantic love scenes I have read. I don’t mean scenes involving sex, but scenes of two people in love expressing their deepest emotions in words and actions towards each other. I could sense the depth of love between Anthony and Tessa throughout the book. I particularly enjoyed the side story of Tessa connecting with a returned soldier suffering from what was then called shell shock. Today we know it as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Considered the “Ice Queen” by many of the wounded soldiers in the state-side hospital where she trained for not being playfully social, she was the only one who reached out to the captain who was a total emotional wreck at the time he arrived. Like many in that era, the prevailing attitude was that the man ought to stop being a coward, pull himself together and go forward. Tessa spent her own time researching the condition and even reached out to her mother who lived in England where there had been more work done to identify the disorder and methods of treatment. I enjoyed the scenes where Tessa, determined to be assigned to a medical unit near where Anthony was stationed, worked towards that goal. Meanwhile, the book also followed Anthony through his basic training and deployment to Anzio, Italy. It was in Italy Anthony ran into Jesse, a con-artist and conniver I first met in a short story that was part of the anthology, Pearl Harbor and More-Stories of WWII: December 1941. His role in the story livened things up. I suspect I will read about him more in future books in this series. It was obvious the author did her research on the different elements of her plot and setting. I recommend this book to those who not only enjoy a good wartime romance, but to those who enjoy the historical aspect of World War II.

    Truly good book! This is a great series! This second book of the series picks up immediately after the first and, thankfully, the author doesn't continually reiterate events from before. Just a few short reminders when necessary. I love the way the characters ' backstories are told so we get a well-defined description of each one. Coming from so many different backgrounds prior to the war brought so much more interest in this story. I have downloaded the third book in this series and am eager to Truly good book!

    I am reading the four books back to back and glad that I am able to do that. In this one , book 2, there are lots of new characters, as Tessa finishes her nurses training and joins the war effort herself. This story has plenty of historical interest so far spanning several years of World War 2. It feels almost like reading journals of the characters to me. A very enjoyable read.

    I love this historical romance series. The characters have really grown and matured from the first book. The details of the world war II setting are great and accurate.

    Disappointing. While I enjoyed returning to the characters, there wasn't much resolution with the book. Disappointing. While I enjoyed returning to the characters, there wasn't much resolution with the book.
