"A Soldier's Promise" is a very interesting read concerning Force Captain John Mason Dixon. He graduated in the top 2 percentile of this very elite group of Navy Seals and immediately received orders for his first tour in Puerto Rico, Mexico. While on a mission John rescues a young lady named Nicole who he later falls in love with and they are married. This serves to be a very difficult journey for them as they were together for a short time after getting married until John once again receives orders to deploy overseas again. Nicole is now pregnant and is very stressed with John being away for so long. You will be able to see the love and concern that this couple shares with each other throughout the pages of this book.
While I enjoyed the plot, theme and readability of the book, I was concerned about the graphic nature of the sexual content between John and Nicole. While they are married and that part is good, it still describes their conduct in great detail. This would not be a book for anyone under 18 years of age.
I enjoyed the military aspect of the book, as well as the love that is shared among this couple. If you are looking for a book that places high regard on love for family and love for country, you will enjoy reading this book as well. It is well written and very entertaining. Authors Aija M. Butler and Thornne E. Xaiviantt did a great job of helping to bring to life the struggles that both the person in the military and their families go through with extended separation.
