Being Prince Charming by D.L. Jackson

Being Prince Charming by D.L. Jackson

You’re no Prince Charming.” 

Words screamed in anger, an empty nest, and an emptier life are just some of the reasons people divorce. For Gunny, a diehard Marine who refuses to give up the Corps, and Lissa his wife of over twenty years, the reason isn’t a good one. After a heated argument morphs out of control, Lissa walks away and in his pride, August refuses to go after her. 

It took two years, but Lissa is finally ready to move on with her life and marry another man. Only one problem, her heart still belongs to the Marine she left behind. 

August is back, looking for a second chance, and this time he isn’t letting Lissa walk away without a fight. Gunny has given up everything, including the Marine Corps, for a second chance with the woman he loves. Madame Eve has given him one night to prove to Lissa he’s all she ever wanted—that he can still be her Prince Charming. Fail, and she’ll marry another man in the morning. 

For this Marine—failure is not an option. 

Review Rating: Five Stars

Review: D.L. Jackson has done it again! 
  Being Prince Charming brings to light that you can't stop letting your other half know that you love them, that they are special to you! Tell him/her everyday that you love them, that they're are beautiful and you can't live without them. But don't stop there, SHOW THEM! And guys I know its exceptionally hard for some of you to do that, but if you want to keep your other half then you're gonna have to pull yourself up by the bootstraps and do it!
   This book had me turning the page until the very end, I wanted to cry and cheer at the torment that both Lissa and Gunny went through for the sake of pride.  I absolutely LOVED the dress up bit that Gunny did for Lissa, I know that it more than likely wasn't easy for him being that he's a macho Marine, but for the sake of the woman he loves he donned those tights and sucked it up. 
  I won't spoil the end of the book for those that have yet to read it, but if you've read other books by D.L. then you know you're in for a treat!
  I'm fortunate that I have a husband that shows and tells me everyday that I am beautiful, that he loves me. He has kept me sane, and brought me back from the depths of post-partum depression and allowed me to be an incurable book nerd. I couldn't ask for a better life partner than him, I hope ya'll find yours if you haven't already.
