Title: Wasted Time

I've come to learn that Mya O'Malley does a great job weaving together an emotional and clean romance. I was amazed at how much heartfelt emotion really was contained in these words.
Declan and Morgan have an insta-love, but that doesn't mean their connection is without problems. Their souls are so deeply connected and their love is so thorough and deep and that causes them both to find it within themselves to think more of the other person, than of themselves. Morgan doesn't want Declan to be deployed anymore than he wants to leave her, but he knows it's his duty and he can't live with himself if he doesn't go. When things don't turn out as expected, Declan comes home broken in more ways than one and can't burden Morgan with his issues. So he doesn't. And she has no idea he's alive. She's moved on with her life, but a piece of her heart just can't be given away again.
Oh, the angst and emotion! I can't imagine making life changing decisions like Declan and Morgan have to make, but they do and I loved to follow them along in their journeys. Morgan is a very sweet, kind, and beautiful woman and the kind of person you can't help but like. Even in the midst of turmoil, she still cares about others. Declan has a little streak of something--rebelliousness, anger, stubbornness--but he, too, thinks of others and is a strong and courageous man.
I love the way the story came together, but I wanted more. I think I was so engrossed in what was happening, that I wanted every little detail of their lives and I felt like some events and feelings were glossed over. The story is driven by emotion and romance, but I wanted the deeper feelings at times to really see how far they both come. There is a great element of light suspense throughout. I did find myself very involved and did enjoy it.
Content: moderate language (a lot of 2 or 3 words, but not the most offensive); mild violence (non-graphic descriptions of war and aftereffects); mild-moderate romantic elements (kissing, fade-to-black bedroom scenes with no details, aside from kissing; flirting with cheating).
My Rating: 4 out of 5 Stars
