Description from the publisher:
** How often do you get a book that has a guy writing the male POV? Not often. This book is written by Scarlett Jade and her husband, Llerxt the 13th, a whirlwind romance between a US Soldier and the girl back home he should have always loved to begin with. Loosely based on their own romance. **

Recommended for 18+ due to adult language and sexual situations.

The town of Major is nothing more than a major disappointment for Zoe Parker.  She is living in a grey world after the death of her beloved Momma, and can’t seem to shake the growing depression that threatens to consume her.  Things only get worse when she discovers her longtime boyfriend is banging every chick in town.
Her daddy is gone most nights, and all she can think about is the boy who really caught her eye in high school more than five years ago… The one with gorgeous dark skin and smoldering eyes… Too bad he was dating her best friend.  Now she floats around, moving through the daily routine with small dreams about getting away from the small town, and finding a real man to claim her heart…

Staff Sergeant Calvin Hall of the US Army is finally putting his boots back on American soil for some R&R. It’s been five years since he joined the military, and he hasn’t looked back since. After dealing with his own troubling past, he wants to lay back and enjoy some time to put it all behind him. But fate has other plans for him… A beautiful woman snags his attention the first day in town and the pull between them is too strong to resist.  The problem?  She is his ex-girlfriend’s best friend, she is just as broken as he is, and he has a war he has to get back to in two weeks.

Who says a summer romance ever has to end?  What if thousands of miles and a war separated you?  Would you keep dancing?  Or would it simply be… a September Tango?


This book is loosely based on the authors’ own love story, “a whirlwind bucket of craziness and the time that Llerxt spent in the military.”  I’m afraid to ask which parts are real.  I may have to track down her ex-boyfriend and her father!   

When Zoe had her worst day ever, I was crying great, big, ugly sobs.  Of course, I also cried during the wedding and laughed numerous times.

I loved this story.  This was an incredibly sweet story. Everyone should have such an epic story to tell of how they met and fell in love.  Perfectly written.  If you don’t read this book, you are going to kick yourself.  This one will be BIG.  I could easily see this becoming a Lifetime movie.

Grammar/editing:  A – near perfect
