"Rose of Anzio, Book Three: Desire"
by Alexa Kang

This is the third book in the Rose of Anzio series. Anthony and Tessa are both in Italy fighting in the war. Anthony is a Lieutenant and Tessa is a nurse serving the same division. As they are both in high combat zones, their lives are almost constantly in danger, if not from the enemy soldiers, then from bombs being dropped on their locations. Even the medical units are not safe from the regular bombing runs from enemy planes.

Their duties often keep them unable to see each other as well as in combat danger. Anthony’s situation is often made worse by a Captain who is so obsessed with capturing a German soldier by the name of Klaus, even to the point of not caring about the loss of his own troops. How is Anthony to keep himself and his men alive when their own Captain isn’t concerned about the loss of his men’s lives?

While Tessa’s life may not be in as imminent danger, the bombing runs over their mobile hospital unit are still plenty dangerous. And then there is Jesse, the medic assigned to Anthony’s unit. He is caught in the middle... friends with Anthony and secretly desperately in love with Tessa. Jesse would do anything to win her heart, but she is unaware of his feelings for her. She thinks of him only as a friend.

This book was easily as captivating as the first two in the series. It showed us a more in-depth look into the lives of the men and women fighting overseas during WWII. We get to see both the good and the bad parts of their daily lives during the war. I loved this book and can’t wait to see how the author will finish the series off in book 4. She has added in so much detail and emotional twists and turns to the plot that I honestly never wanted to put this book down. I very strongly recommend reading this one, especially if you have already read the first 2 books in the series.
