Imperfect Heart (Combat Hearts #4) by Tarina Deaton was the perfect ending to this wonderfully amazing series.
I love this series, and I’m saddened that this is the last instalment. But all good things must come to a end, even if we don’t want them to. I must say this book, was just as strong as the others, and it being that last had that added closer that let you feeling like, these characters are going to be okay. I will say that though this is considered a standalone. I highly suggest reading the other books, so you can get a feel for this world, and of course, avoid spoilers.
While reading this book I was sitting here like, did Tarina Deaton just predict my future? Confused, well I am a serving member (Canadian Navy) and I currently have 12 years in, and am releasing in the next year. My plan is to somehow just surround myself with books and make money. So yeah, I drew some strong comparison between myself and our MC. Now I just need a sexy cop to come “save me” and we’d be all good. .jk.jk...
Okay enough about that, let’s get into this story.
I very much like Zoe, and as I have said in my reviews of the other books in this series, you can tell it was written by someone who has served. The slang, the interactions, and just in the way Zoe acted. I believe I have said this before, but the military, no matter what country you serve in, does a number on your social skills. And the whole, “I can save myself”, is also a strong trait we all seem to share.
Tim, my dream guy, why the hell are you fiction? lol.. But in all seriousness, he was a great character and fit well with Zoe. Strong, sassy, and there, he was there for her, even when she was fighting him, he was there. Sure he was a bit alpha-ish, but he’s a cop, I think that’s part of their job requirements.
Overall this book, was perfect. It was a perfect addition to a amazing series, and it was that perfect ending that tied up everything, leaving you feeling all gooey and happy on the inside. So please, please take my super, super, high recommendation and my gold stamp of approval, that you will be captured by this truly heart melty, feels snapping read.
