Book Blitz & Giveaway ~ 1000 Sleepless Nights by Connie Michael


1000 Sleepless Nights
By- Connie Michael



There are two absolutes in war, people get killed and you can’t stop it. Twenty-three year old Corpsman Emme Sawyer doesn’t believe in absolutes. Excelling in school Emme graduated early flew through undergrad work and was on her way to med school when she realized she wanted more. Joining the Navy, Emma deploys as a medical corpsman with a Marine Infantry Unit heading into the Helmand Providence in Afghanistan.
When the bullets start to fly Emme learns that medical school doesn’t prepare you for war and being a girl doesn’t make getting killed off limits. Emme struggles against the cultural biases of a foreign land and the limitations her unit is put under while trying to push the Taliban out.  After her guard is killed by an IED, Emme shuts off her emotions—until her commanding officer, Raven takes the job of looking after her, arousing feelings she doesn’t want and isn’t supposed to have.  

As Raven begins to reciprocate Emme realizes she missed out on a lot more than classes when she skipped high school. Unsure how to deal with the loss Emme turns to Raven, for support.  As their connection grows Emme hesitates to take it further, knowing that developing feelings in a combat zone is dangerous when each step could be your last. Aware of the regulations against starting a relationship with someone in his unit, Raven tries to suppress his feelings but knows they are too strong to deny.  Soon Emme and Raven learn you can’t choose when and where love finds you and sometimes you have to take a chance.

  1. Ever since I read Something Like Normal I've wanted to read more stories about soldiers, either during or after deployment. This sounds so freaking good!

    1. I really want to read that book. I've heard so many great things about it. I also recommend Collateral by Ellen Hopkins. Wow, that book is emotional!

  2. Hmm, another one for my TBR, Jennifer. I haven't read many books set in more recent (or current) wars but I'm really curious about this one. Thanks so much for putting it on my radar! :)
