What are some good military love stories?

My boyfriend is a Marine and I found that I'm addicted to military romance novels. I love Nicholas Sparks (Dear John, The Lucky One). Books make time go by faster and its all of the love and none of the bs of life. :] Any one have any good suggestions?

    As much as I hated the movie, I would say "Pearl Harbor". I'm more of a history buff and focused more on the accuracy of events versus the love story.

    You might also want to check out "Midway". There's a love back story about a navy pilot and a Japanese girl right after the bombing of Pearl Harbor.

    Hope this helps

    Oh! I left out the obvious ones! "An officer and a Gentlemen" and "Annapolis"

  • I have a good one about my rifle being my best friend. I was useless with out him. Sure, there are many like him, but that one was mine. It was my life.
