Meet Me Under the Full Moon

(Meet Me #1)

by Kelly Collins 



The soldiers at Walter Reed know that war can be brutal and cruel. The biggest battle is often fought after they leave the battlefield.
Ava Sawyer knows the cost of war too well. As a volunteer at Walter Reed, she sees the men and woman rotate through the halls as the nation tries to heal its heroes. Using music and movement, she encourages the wounded vets to find a new rhythm in their lives.
Mark Taylor thought his dreams had ended until a beautiful woman dances into his life and his heart.
Will the scars of war be too much to handle, or can love conquer all?


My Rating:



Favorite Quotes:


Never be embarrassed by love, sweetie, it’s the only emotion worth paying attention to.


‘I’m not sure if the management would like me seducing the patients… I bet it’s been at least eight months, unless you’ve been banging Nurse Roz in the mop closet.’ Nurse Roz is about sixty years old; she weighs nearly three hundred pounds and runs the ward like a drill sergeant.


I would love you even if you looked like a toad, but how did I end up with you? You’re a goddess.



My Review:


I adored this feel good, deeply satisfying and heart-warming romance between a wounded vet and a hospital volunteer who had developed a program to use music and ballroom dance to assist with the healing of returning wounded soldiers at an Army Hospital.   The story was written in my favorite dual POV with tender care and thoughtful craft. The writing was poignant, uplifting, observant, and steamy. I cherished this couple and look forward to reading more of this series.


Kelly Collins writes with the intention of keeping the love alive.

Always a romantic, she is inspired by real-time events mixed with a dose of fiction. She encourages her readers to reach the happily ever after but bask in the afterglow of the perfectly imperfect love.

Kelly lives in Colorado with her husband of twenty-five years. She loves hockey, shiny objects and has a new-found appreciation for green smoothies.
