HOMETOWN HEARTLESS by Carrie Aarons
Release Date: January 23
One year ago, the boy next door was captured as a prisoner of war.
The boy whose window faces mine.
The backyard buddy who bandaged up my skinned knees.
The childhood crush that kept me up at night, wondering if he’d ever be my boyfriend.
The town hero I wrote endless letters to after he shipped out.
The green-eyed charmer who promised me a kiss the day I turned eighteen.
And now, he’s home.
But he didn’t come back as the boy I once knew.
He’s a man now, one with demons I can’t comprehend.
The damaged soldier keeps telling me I’m not his anymore.
That the war took him, turned him into someone unrecognizable.
What he hasn’t considered is that it took me, too.
He swears there is nothing left between us, that his heart died overseas. But with each look through our windows, we both know his lies are just that. With each fated meeting, the truth only becomes more evident.
Everett Brock occupies the shadows now.
And as much as I try to pull him into the light, it seems the switch is permanent.
What he doesn’t realize is that I’m willing to follow him into the darkness.

I’ll keep this short because I’ll lose my cool if I try and write too much; I’ve read this book two days ago and every time I sat down to write a review I always end up crying because that’s what this book did to me. I despise war – coming from a place where not so long ago we had war going around us and losing love ones due to it it’s always hard reading about it.
This book is so much more then that simple blurb shows. It’s a story of growth, losing and then finding hope and holding on to that hope with everything you got.
I’m giving this an emotional 5* and its definitely going on my Must read 2020 list
