***Blog Tour***Loving You is Easy by Wendy S. Marcus
She’s a survivor of the front lines of politics. He’s a wounded soldier returning home from the battlefield. Can they place their trust in the power of love?
Nobody plays the role of perfect politician’s daughter better than quiet, respectable math teacher Brooke Ellstein. But she won’t be caught swimming with the sharks again, not after the son of a wealthy donor sinks his teeth into her and gets away with it. Still, political connections have their perks, such as heading up the governor’s “Support Our Troops” pen-pal initiative—and getting first dibs on the smoking-hot sergeant whose picture shakes her right down to her goody-two-shoes.
When corresponding with sweet, classy Brooke, Shane Develen instinctively hides his commando tattoos and blue-collar roots—and he can tell that she’s hiding something, too. But Shane knows he’s gained her trust when Brooke gives him a blisteringly sexy photo. Then he’s injured in an ambush and a fellow soldier posts the snapshot online. Overnight, Brooke’s reputation turns to ashes. Even though he’s totally wrong for her, Shane shows up on Brooke’s doorstep, determined to set things right—and discovers that right or wrong has nothing on the chemistry they share.

|4 Don’t Judge A Book By Its Cover Stars|
Loving you is easy is the first book I have read by this author. I’m lucky enough to have been gifted a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review so here goes…
Here in the UK we are proud of our troops and the job they do but not to the extent that US does. Perhaps us Brits are just quieter about it, I’m not sure.
I love how Americans celebrate their servicemen and women and I thought the idea of having soldiers as pen pals is such a heart warming idea.
At the start of the book I wasn’t a massive fan of either character to be honest. Yes they may have had a connection via the letters they have exchanged, but right off the bat Shane told Brooke that he wasn’t up for a long distance girlfriend.
Brooke comes off as a bit of a psycho, sorry, but if the bloke says he’s not interested in a girlfriend and he keeps saying it TAKE THE HINT!!!!!
And Shane what a douche!!!! I don’t want you to be my girlfriend but send me naked photos! I don’t want you to be my girlfriend but I want to have lots of sex with me!!! I don’t want you to be my girlfriend but give me a blowjob!!!! Seriously!!!! And then maybe next time I’m on leave we can think about that girlfriend thing again!!! Yep DOUCHE!!!!
My opinion on both of them did change and I did grow to like both of them by the end of the book!!!
Brooke is not at all how she’s appears upon first impression, she’s strong and determined and amazingly normal considering her family.
OMG her mother!!!!
I kind of love Shane’s grumpiness even when he’s being an arse he was still sexy with it!!
Shane’s family was lovely except from his sister who was like an extra from the Jerry Springer show.
I liked that this was a much deeper story than your average romance. This story is as much about acceptance and moving forward.
I’m hoping that the author will be writing Neve and Rory’s book next because I’m completely intrigued!!
I enjoyed this book; I admit I cried like an idiot about Tommy.
Loving you is Easy gets 4 stars from me
