Title: Atomic Love
Author: Jennie Fields
Thoughts: What more could I ask for from a book? A strong female protagonist, World War II spies, a hot FBI agent, (spoiler alert) the strong female protagonist ending up with the hot FBI agent but not having to give up her career, and the good guys winning in the end. It’s a romance novel about World War II spies and the atomic project. How was I not going to choose this as my August Book of the Month?

“Too large a part of her mourns the loss of who she once was.” (p. 60)
“Still, the joy of Ava’s hilarity, the tenderness when his eyes rest momentarily on her face, are richer and more rewarding than anything she’s felt in a long, long time.” (p. 83)
“How many people in the world are so poisoned by sadness, they push love away when it’s the one thing they long for most?” (p. 143)
“But somehow her brokenness speaks to him, maybe because it echoes his own.” (p. 183)
“At that moment, Charlie wants to look to the future too. He’s tired of feeling unmoored. Unlovable. Irreparable. Didn’t he suffer enough in the jungle and at Mitsushima? Doesn’t he deserve a future of kindness, maybe even love? He’s got to find the courage to reach out for it.” (p. 225)
“They’re both floundering. Yet each time he’s kissed her, held her, she’s felt an inexplicable alchemy that makes her believe together they can be so much studier. So much more.” (p. 309)
