Imperfect Heart is the fourth book in the Combat Hearts Series by Tarina Deaton. This series really is soooo good, and just seems to get better with each new instalment. I was excited to get my hands on this book, but also a little sad to discover that it’s the final instalment in this fantastic series. Although this can be read as a standalone, I really recommend the other books in this series too- as they are wonderful stories in their own rights.
I had high expectations for this book, especially after learning it was the last in the series, so I am incredibly happy to say that Ms. Deaton didn’t let me down- it was every bit as good as I hoped it would be. Ms. Deaton certainly knows how to entice her readers into a story and hold their interest the whole way through. It is very easy to become emotionally invested in her character/s and their wonderful stories- and this book was no different.
Zoe Acevedo has left the Air Force to fulfil her dream of opening her own bookstore. She’s strong, determined, and quite independent- but definitely has no filter. This is her ‘new beginning’ after 13 years in the military- leaving her cheating ex, and family problems behind. She’s frustrated that her hunky neighbour keeps finding her in awkward situations. Too bad she doesn’t have time for any distractions, even one as sexy as he is.
Tim Larkin is a local police officer and brother of Jase (Book #1). He won me over right away, he’s so swoony. When his sexy new neighbour moved in, he didn’t expect to have to come to her rescue. But he’s just doing his job, right? Protect and serve- that’s what he does, right? Plus, there is a mutual attraction simmering between them? Will their chemistry finally ignite? What happens when disaster strikes? What does the future hold? You’ll need to read this superb story to find out.
Thank you, Ms. Deaton!
