Camouflaged is an military romance novella by Selena Laurence. Gabe Thompson enlisted to help out his buddy, but three years later he’s 100% US military bad boy, serving in the desert of Afghanistan where the days are hot, but the nights are hotter. Alexis Garcia is out to save the world. The University of Texas freshman has come to Afghanistan to do aid work with the United Nations. She’s all about the peace, and she has no use for the camp’s biggest, baddest, gun toting player. But, sometimes camouflage is more than a color, and people aren’t what they seem. When conflict develops not only between Gabe and Alexis, but also all around them, they’re forced to look deeper, and what they find will rock their worlds and change their hearts forever.

I have to admit, when I first started reading this book I didn’t quite think it was going to be for me and I even almost put it down. Luckily for me for some reason I didn’t and it turned out to be quite a lovely read that completely catches you by surprise.
I also must confess the first few chapters I was sure the author was man. It was just written in a way that women don’t typically see things. That was until I got further into the book and then I had to glance at the cover again and see that yes indeed the author was a female and her feminine views did shine through.
This is the kind of book that puts a smile on your face. It’s not overly sappy, but it’s still very sweet and heartfelt. I liked it a lot and I highly recommend it to anyone.
