Imperfect Heart (Combat Hearts Book 4)
By Tarina Deaton
I have loved reading this series and this book is no different!! This author had become one of my favorites, I have truly enjoyed reading every story and have become invested in each of these wonderful characters. I am so glad to see that the characters from the other books make appearances in each story. Zoe and Tim’s story is heartwarming, hilarious and so much more. Zoe is a strong and independent woman who finds herself in embarrassing situations whenever her hot neighbor Tim is around. I found myself not only smiling but actually laughing out loud at times. They have both been hurt in the past and are apprehensive about having someone in their life. If you want to read an awesome romantic story and find out what happens between these two, this is a must read! I highly recommend this book and the entire series.

Imperfect Heart was a great 5 star read and book four in the Combat Hearts series.

I was pulled in right from the beginning, with a LOL scene with Zoe and a raccoon. On top of that the way she ends up meeting her neighbor Tim was classic. Best start ever in a book.
Zoe has moved to Haven Springs to start over and open a bookstore.

Tim is a police officer and I fell for him right away. When he got a call from his neighbor about a possible suspicious person, he definitely didn’t plan to find Zoe in the predicament she was. There is something about his new neighbor that has got his attention.

Will Zoe’s bookstore be a great addition to Haven Springs? Will Zoe and Tim have a HEA?

There is so much more to this great read. All of the secondary characters were great.
The chemistry between these two was off that charts. Tim was very supportive of Zoe and he had an alpha side to him that brings us some steamy moments. The bantering had me LOL at times. Tarina’s writing is great, she pulls you right in and you won’t want to stop until your done. I look forward to reading more from her. If your looking for a fun series that has lots of different elements, this is the one for you.

My Rating: 5 of 5 stars

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.

Happy Reading

Well, I most certainly did not see the side-splitting laughs that were to come from this novel. I have read the previous Combat Hearts novels, and really they were good novels, but this one takes the top favorite for me. I was excited, because this was a perfect conclusion to the series for me. My only complaint… It ended, lol. You do not have to have read the other books in the series to enjoy this one, they can be standalones. However, it would increase your reading pleasure.

Zoe was so relatable for me. She has that quirky awkwardness about her. She talks a lot when she doesn’t know what to say, much like myself. I think the only thing we don’t have in common is the fact that she was in the military. I love her love for books, and that she goes for her dream of opening a bookstore after she retires from her military career. I guess the other difference is that she is a youngest child and I am the oldest, but those seem to have similar characteristics as well.

Then there is Tim, the handsome strong cop. He is drawn to Zoe and wants to protect her. Well Zoe being the strong, independent and ex-militant woman she is, doesn’t need this help and protector. Cue hilarious jokes and side comments. Especially when feelings are introduced to the mix! There is a perfect balance of comedy, romance, and just enough of a twist to keep you on the edge of your seat that you will be reading this well past your bedtime to find out how things will end for these two. Like I said, I am sad to see Combat Hearts come to a close, but I look forward to seeing what else is to come from Tarina Deaton in the near future! Thanks for the great series!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is the second book I have read by Deaton. Even though it is the 4th book in the series it can be read as a standalone. Zoe and Tim’s friends are from the first three books and are mentioned in this story, but you do not have to read those stories to understand this one. Should you read them? Yes! Tarina Deaton is quickly becoming a favorite new to me author.

Imperfect Heart is super cute, super fun and super sexy. Tim is a small-town police officer while Zoe is ex-military. Zoe’s family sucks. Plain and simple they do not have her best interest at heart. Her best friend Elba is exactly what a best friend should be, caring, fun, and smart. Even the old lady across the street, Mrs. Wilson, seems to care more about Zoe than her own family.
While reading this story I laughed out loud, got a little teary eyed and found myself nodding my head in agreement many times.

“It was…nice. She didn’t have an issue with being taken care of. At least, not in the sense that she was helpless or wanted someone to provide for her, but having a guy who worried and wanted to make sure she was safe…? Yeah…that was hot.”

I highly recommend this story and can’t wait to read the others in this series.

5++++++++ Stars

I’m going to start right off with…Definitely one of my favorite books so far this year, actually maybe even further back than that. I’m not sure without looking how many of this authors books I have read but I know I have felt the same way after every one of them.

I honestly didn’t know if I was going to make it past 10% because I was laughing so hard at so many things and I couldn’t see through the tears. I really sincerely wish I could find the words to explain what it is I love so much about reading this authors books. It’s the way she words conversations between characters, the one liners, the snarky comebacks, they all just feel so real. I sincerely did not want the book to end, and even as I write this review I want to read it all over again, actually I want to make sure I have all of this series and read them all back to back.

I loved this storyline, Zoe is absolutely one of my all time favorite female leads, she was so strong, and determined yet still had the softness to her personality, and absolutely hilarious, I dont even know which part of her story had me laughing the hardest, and then she still had that side to her that melted my heart, and then in comes Tim….**heavy sigh** we all need a Tim, he was everything I want in my male leads

I’m not going to retell the story in this review, Im just going to tell you you have to read this book, actually read the whole series, the people from the previous books follow through the series and having all those stories are a definite must.

This authors talent for words has her in a class with the best of the best in my opinion.

Can not wait for more!! Loved it!

I lost the count of how many times I laughed and chuckled while reading this book. The situations that Zoe found herself in are just hilarious and of course it’s even more funny when a hot man like Tim is around to comment on them. But oh, her comebacks are delicious and full of sass!!

Two people who were married before but have been hurt in the past. They crave that person that will be for them through the ups and down and they can cuddle with after a long day. However they are chucking it on their busy lives, pretending they are okay just like this rather than him saving another damsel in distress and her to go trough cheating again. But when it’s bound to happen it will happen and these two will have the help of all their friends to make it happen 🙂

Zoe as a heroine is amazing, so brave and positive and of course feisty!! Tim is her perfect match *smirk* Great secondary characters as well!

IMPERFECT HEART is Book 4 of the Combat Heart Series. It is a stand-alone but you really should read the other stories in the series also to find out how fabulous each and every friend is.

I love this series and it just keeps getting better and better. I hope it continues on with Elba’s story – Oh my gosh, and Kevin!! We need Kevin’s story!!! The thing I especially like in this series is that the author is not afraid to write strong, independent women who do not NEED men in their life to make them complete – they WANT them in their life. That’s an amazing place to be and I wish more people understood that – real and fictional.

As with the other stories in this series, the characters are well developed and are mature and able to speak their truth eloquently. The characters are family – some by blood and others by choice. This is a multi layered story that is told in 3rd person. It’s real and and it’s genuine. I would absolutely want to be friends with all of the women in this series and the story makes me want to go to my local independent bookstore for a cup of coffee and a book.

This is a quick and easy read that I was very fulfilled with.

I absolutely recommend this book, this series and this author.

Five Stars

A super cute short read that was fun. Tim and Zoe were a fun couple. I don’t understand how Tim put up with Zoe’s need to make list for everything. I mean she put him on a to do list lol. I liked how the author didn’t make everything so dramatic. The moments that caused a separation seemed flawless and more natural. Some people are meant to separate but find a way back together. I like that they knew their flaws and could adjust for their partner. I wish finding someone to share your life with was as easy as reading it in a book. I really liked this author and can’t wait to read some more. Hopefully Elba gets a story next. I really liked her.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the fourth book in this series, I enjoyed it just as much as the other books in this series. The one thing I enjoy about this author is her ability to pull me in right from the beginning and this one is no different. She made me feel as if I was right there with Zoe and Tim. They are characters that made me laugh in parts and compassion in the other. The chemistry between these two is strong and I found myself hoping they would find their HEA. I highly recommend reading their story!
