The Nerd and the Marine - D.R. Grady This book is lovely and warm. It is feels like an early book for a writing beginning to get her fully voice and craft. It is longer than it needs to be, has a side plot that could not have existed and been replaced with more emotional depth. or been intensified to create rounder characters. It has great character development but the physicality of the characters seems off. The writer writes the book in a combination of emails, videos, and live action. The balance could be better between these elements and there might be some kindle conversation issues. All that being said... It is great start and worth the price to check it out. Its innovative and tender. The dog is great and as is the family and the h and the heroine. Check it out!
