    Loved!!

    Mikhail Wanjek, the last of Sergeant Joe's boys, is back home with Marlene and his brothers Tino and Jack. Struggling not only with the loss of his beloved father but also dealing with the guilt of war. Always the protector, Mikhail can't deal with not being able to protect the innocents caught up in the war. He has trouble containing his rage until he meets his beautiful next door neighbor Amy Short. There is something about her that seems to calm his soul. There is something about Amy that is sweet and innocent. Almost naive. Mikhail wants to protect her from the darkness of his life but the draw to her is just too strong. I have loved each book in this series and this one may just be my favorite of the three. The love of this family and the uniqueness of each of the characters made this entire series a must read. This one is definitely one for the must read list!

    A Totally Compelling Read!!!

    This is the third novel in the Sergeant Joe’s Boys series, but for me, this is the first book in the series that I have read. I have to say, not having read the previous two books did not detract from my enjoyment of this book in any way whatsoever. It did, however, make me very anxious to read the first two books in the series, because if they're anything like this book, they will be fantastic. I thoroughly enjoyed this book from start to finish. The plot was interesting and the characters were complex and well thought out. These characters really draw you into the story, and you just can't help but become invested in their lives. I was hooked from very early on and remained riveted to the very last page. This is a story of love overcoming hardship; one that highlights the struggle many of our veterans go through, and one that shows how love can truly help to manage the unmanageable. It is compelling and provocative yet endearing and enchanting in its own way. I would highly recommend this book and look forward to reading more in the series. *I was given an ARC of this story via NetGalley and voluntarily chose to review. All opinions are my own.

    Feel Good Read!

    Two people struggling to lead a "normal" life. Mikhail, recently back from military service, battles those unsettling memories and other guilt. Amy has issues of her own. These neighbors become friends and share an attraction for one another. Self doubt and guilt may prevent any happiness they'd find together. An enjoyable, feel good contemporary romance. Loved it! This last book of the series was full of emotional turmoil and healing. I adored Mikhail, as I did his brothers. Amy was a delight, holding her own throughout! I would love to read Jay's story. Voluntarily read an ARC, thru Netgalley and publisher, for an honest review.

    Dragged a bit

    This is the first time I have read this author and even though I liked the story, I felt like it was not giving me the fulfillment I needed as a reader. Even though this is part of a series, this book can be read as a standalone. Mikhail has a painful past and he suffers from PTSD. Since he has returned from his last tour and tried to settle back into civilian life, he has pushed away his adoptive family and isolated himself. He continues to have nightmares and flashbacks which triggers his anger issues. Mikhail doesn’t want to subject a woman to his tortured soul. Until he meets Amy. Amy is such a sweet soul but has a lust for life. She has led an overprotected life until she had heart surgery that gives her the freedom to live her life. She was born with a heart valve defect and was living in her family’s protective bubble. That was great but when she had the successful surgery her family wouldn’t allow her to fully live her life without hassle. So, she up and moved 1 hour away to start over. When she finally got to meet her grumpy but handsome neighbor, it was lust at first sight for Amy. Their relationship developed as a friendship and even though there was a spark there, Mikhail put the skids on. He kept gravitating to Amy more and more, seeking that solace that only she could provide. Amy enjoyed her time with Mikhail and wanted more. They both had secrets from their pasts that they needed to share and when things came to light, misunderstandings happened, families got involved and it got messy. I won’t give any more away as you need to read this story for yourself. I loved the friends to lover’s aspect, however, I felt it dragged on too long, thus causing the story to drag in spots. I was hoping to have a longer period where they figured out their relationship instead of the rushed ending, which was a big disappointment for me. The book had a lot of promise, it was just those things that caused me to enjoy it less.
