    This was definitely a five star book as far as interest, emotions, and enjoyment goes.After the big parade in Washington (covered in the first book), the men were wired and all went out to a bar to celebrate. Shane, who was not a drinker, got drunk and met a woman in a bar. Her name was Annie. He didn't know it at the time, but she was an alcoholic who had dropped off the wagon for the night. Both drunk and looking for affection, they had a night of passion in a cheap motel room.This book begins three months later. Annie announces to Shane that she's pregnant. Shane is blown away at the news, but Annie quickly tells her that she wants nothing from him and requests he leaves her alone. But after Shane get over the initial shock, he knows he MUST be part of his child's life. Annie pushes back hard for most of the book.Like I said, this book was a five star read. The emotions, the situations, the drama was all good. There were a couple things that kept me from giving it five stars. I thought about just giving it five stars and moving on, but I wanted to give an honest review:1. I think Annie pushes him away just a little too hard. When they get some bad news about the baby, she starts pushing him away again and wallows in her self-pity that nobody loves her. She'll be alone again...blah...blah...blah...Though I could understand and sympathize with her to a point, I think the author went a bit overboard...2. The big "I'm never talking to you again so just leave me alone" drama after they get the news is resolved WAAAAYYY too quickly. There's all this emotion in the situation and I was looking forward to a really good scene when Shane was going to talk to her no matter what and it just sort of...fizzled...3. SPOILER: I think this could have been a really good opportunity for the author to write some spiritual content and let the couple rely more on God and less on medicine. The fact that neither had much money, Annie had no insurance, and the tumor was so big would have kept the hospital from doing such a risky surgery. I could NOT believe Medicaid insurance would have covered such a procedure. I enjoyed the whole scene, but I didn't see anything wrong if they had just relied on God. I think that would have been a lot more realistic.5. Parents, I think you should talk to your teenager daughters before allowing them to read this book, or read the book with them. The issue of teenage drinking was covered very well. However there was hardly anything mentioned about the fact that what the premarital sex the couple participated in was a sin. I think the author should have made it more clear.With all the above said, I think it was a VERY, VERY good read. You don't often get a story like this in Love Inspired, but the reality is it happens. I have been a Christian since I was nine and never really completely abandoned God, yet I found myself single and pregnant. It happens...Like I said, I did't want to put negative remarks in this review, but I felt it was important for the reader to get my honest opinion. I thought the author did a very good job on this book. These issues could have probably been explained better if she were allowed more pages in the book...She did the best she could with what she had!

    I support our troops 100%. This book has nothing to do with supporting them or encouraging them. It is supposed to be a sweet story of love, triumph, family, finding faith.Honestly, the premise was sweet - military man and recovering alcoholic make a mistake & make a go of it. I was looking forward to a good, clean, sweet read.The author's approach, being that from the "everyone sins & everyone deserves forgiveness", is backed up by her characters, who needed to be more well-developed. Marge is apparently a counselor of some type, while Olivia is her teenage daughter. They've opened their home to certain clients who are in need. *Spoiler Alert*That brings us to the heroine, who makes a mistake & slips up (I'm sorry, the counselor's name stuck w/me but I had to look up the girl's name). She tells Shane (also looked up that name) that she was going through a bad time and that's why she slid back into bad habits. However, when Shane pushes, she basically says it wasn't anything that pushed her over the edge, she just went back to her bad ways.Shane is supposed to be a man who believes in God but is not a man of faith. Suddenly, and he says it's because of Annie, he has "faith" and starts praying.They fall in love too quickly, & the reader is told exactly what is happening - it's like a slap in the face, the decisions do not make sense, but they're Ms. Davids' characters. There is an abrupt emergency that arises with no warning and is easily fixed (scary pregnancy situation with overblown reactions & no time to build up to them - showing immaturity in the characters).The main character seems to go along with everyone else's opinions with no substance to herself. The main male character is supposed to come across as a good guy, and I guess Ms. Davids portrayed him as a good ol' boy pretty well.The characters do not play well together, the story needs to be fleshed out, the trials need to be better explained, and there needs to be a description of the meeting with her parents (Shane goes to meet them) before these characters arrive and everything is "happy go lucky" with a beautiful family and everybody's in love.Otherwise, with some work, I think Ms. Davids has a story.

    This is now one of my favorite Love Inspired books and trust me I have many. I absolutely loved how much emotion was put in to this book. Military Daddy made me smile, laugh, and even cry. I have so many Love Inspired books and I am pleased to add this one to my collection. I would definitely tell everyone that I know to read this one. Military Daddy tugged at my heart because of the situation the couple started out in. I know there are alot of people in that same situation today and it was very interesting to me to see how they dealt with it. I can say that I have never been in that situation and I am glad for the choices they took in the book. I absolutely loved this book! My favorite part was when she said to her baby "you have a military daddy" that part was a very emotional part. It made me cry just knowing what some families go through that deal with the military, but to read about a family and see the mother say that to her child, I broke. I hope that everyone that looks at this book won't second guess it. It is definitely one that I will read over and over and over. Hope everyone will enjoy it as much as I have and that they will also keep it in their book collection too, cause it's a keeper.

    Another good book by Patricia Davids. It is full of surprises and I didn't see the ending coming. It was a pleasant surprise.

    This was a very sweet love story. I loved watching the characters fall in love, and the lengths the hero of the story went to to save his unborn child.
