Ballantine Bantam Dell launches the first Loveswept eBook Original – Read the USA Today Review

Ballantine Bantam Dell launches the first Loveswept eBook Original – Read the USA Today Review

Because of You by debut author Jessica Scott is the first eBook original published in the Loveswept line from Ballantine Bantam Dell. Available now for $2.99, this e-original has already garnered praise from powerhouse New York Times bestselling romance authors like Suzanne Brockmann, Christy Reece, JoAnn Ross, Brenda Novak, Allison Brennan, and Robyn Carr, just to name a few.

Check out the glowing review from USA Today’s Mandi Schreiner:

“We get such an intimate look at the emotional and physical scars that war inflicts on soldiers and the ones who love them. This book is heavy on the angst. There are so many intense situations and feelings that when I finished the book, I felt a little drained, but in a good way. I love tortured heroes, and Shane definitely fits the bill.”

And her verdict?

“. . . Because of You is full of angst and traumatic moments, suspenseful situations and a few steamy romance scenes. I’m really starting to get into military romances, and I think Jessica Scott has done a great job balancing everything in this book. It is heart-wrenching as you watch not only the hero and heroine struggle, but all of the supporting characters as well. But it also makes you smile as you see them triumph. I can’t wait for her next book!”
