My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Courage of us by Brooke May was an absolute great read. I was hooked from the very first page. The author gives the reader happy parts, sad parts and funny parts. This book has it all. I almost felt like I knew the characters.

Duke and Patience have been best friends forever. Their parents are best friends and they used to bathe Duke and Patience together when they were younger. Patience has no female friends but her group of guys are all she needs. Duke and Patience obviously have a stronger bond but all of them protect her as if they are her older brothers.
They have graduated and most of the guys are all headed off in the next few days to different branches of the military.
Patience chooses one special night to confess to Duke that her feelings run much stronger then friendship. The only problem with that is, when she wakes up he is gone. She doesn’t know if she ruined her friendship with her best friend over one crazy night or what.

Duke hides the fact that he too is joining the military. He doesn’t tell Patience his plans. Now he has been away for 7 years and has thought of her every single day since he left. He can’t believe she went and married the loser she was dating even after the night they spent together.

When Duke finally comes home for good, he runs into Patience that first night. Can they pick up where they left off or is their friendship gone after what he did to her? A lot has happened in the last 7 years. Patience has baggage, Duke has baggage, lots of secrets. So much has happened. Will their chemistry they always had get them back to where they should be or is 7 years just to long to be away from each other.

I absolutely loved this book. Patience is one strong girl who can do anything she sets her mind to.

What a read! I absolutely loved this story, it was captivating, emotional, realistic and makes you completely invested in these characters story. This read takes us on an emotional rollercoaster of second chances, heartache, reinventing and rediscovering yourself, romance & love. I loved all the characters that were involved in this read, Patience & Duke were two brilliant characters that I couldn’t help but wish that they get a HEA. They have an incredible connection and their chemistry is undeniable, I couldn’t help but love both of them! I’m so glad I got the chance to read this book, I highly recommend this not to be missed!

Patience and Duke have been best friends since forever. However, Patience knows that her feeling for Duke go beyond friendship. She is even dating Greg, a guy who barely makes time for her, so she won’t ruin her friendship with Duke by wanting more. On a drunken night after graduation she confesses those feelings and crosses that friendship line. When she wakes up the next morning, Duke is gone.
Seven years later, Duke returns to their hometown to a recently-divorced Patience. Those seven years have not been easy for Patience and she is angry and betrayed that her best friend up and left after the night they shared. Duke knows he needs to make it up to Patience. With the help of their still-present chemistry (and some sneaky family members), Duke is determined to prove to Patience that they are meant for each other. But there are secrets and events in the time they were apart that could put an end to the relationship before it gets started.
This story felt so real and I felt connected to it from the beginning. The characters were brought to life by the words of Brooke May and I found myself immersed in their world until the last page. The story was full of emotion and feelings that relationships go through, which lead to me laughing and tearing up at different parts of the story. Brooke May is a new author that I have now discovered, and I look forward to future books that she writes.

I fell in love with the cover first of Courage of Us by Brooke May. I have read a few other novels of hers so I knew it would be something I would enjoy and it was a no-brainer to one-click for me this one. I am so happy to say that the book lived up to its cover and so much more.

I loved the characters Patience and Duke. Now, at moments I didn’t really care for Duke which will all make sense when you read it for yourself, but this guy felt like he got off the hook a tad too easy for my liking. That is until we find out the secrets haunting Patience’s past can be just as big a factor.

Patience and Duke were each other’s everything from the moment they met as infants. Unfortunately, life had other plans when they grew up. Patience is stuck behind and finds herself in a terrible marriage. Meanwhile Duke takes leave with the Marines and basically abandons Patience. Now the two have a chance to meet back up and put the past to bed. Will they be able to do so and build the happily ever after they both so deserve? This is one you do not want to miss and I am so excited to find out there will be more books to come! I can’t wait to see what will happen next!

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Courage of Us (Code of Honor Book 1) by Brooke May is a story that you can easily get lost in. It is a military romance and it is one story with deep feelings and emotions, heartache and love, loss and pain and Brooke has written the characters in such a way that you become so immersed in them that you feel everything right along with them. It is a tale of young love that was lost and secrets that may destroy them.

Patience’s world was changing, everyone she loved went away but what hurt the most was the loss of her best friend. Nothing for seven years but heartache and loss but she is slowly rebuilding her life that is until her past comes back and she has to face it head on. Will she be able to share her most terrible secret with the one that could destroy her?

Duke could not bear to see the pain so he took off without a word and now he is coming home after years away and is determined to get back what is his. But there is one thing stopping him and he doesn’t want to share that secret with anyone who could see him less than a man. Will he take a chance and share every secret or will it be too much and lose his chance at love?

Brooke’s story is a second chance at love and about healing through the pain that life has thrown at you by being with the one you love.

Found in the Lost (Special Forces: Operation Alpha)(The Leonidas Corporation Book 1) by Tarina Deaton – Review by Robin Rankin

Found in the Lost (Special Forces: Operation Alpha / The Leonidas Corporation Book 1)Found in the Lost by Tarina Deaton
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Found in the Lost (Special Forces: Operation Alpha) (The Leonidas Corporation Book 1) by Tarina Deaton is a great start to a new series.

Kinley is so excited about what she’s discovered and it comes through in the way she was written. Shane is a big alpha male trying to find his way in the civilian world.

I loved Kinley, she was smart and not afraid to show it. Unfortunately those smarts put a target on her back and people want the information she has. Thankfully she literally runs into Shane who takes it upon himself to take care of her, though he doesn’t understand why.

There was suspense, mystery and some pretty steamy moments. This was a bit different from the other books I have read by Ms. Deaton with there was a little more danger involved and I loved it. Looking forward to keeping up with this series.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Found in the Lost is the first book in Tarina Deaton’s Leonidas Corporation series. I had read her Combat Heart series so I thought that I knew what to expect and she absolutely did live up to my expectations and gave us an action packed romantic read that pulls you in from page one with the suspicious man at the airport followed by an attempted attack by bandits….
It is a fast paced read that takes you the long forgotten Mayan ruins for a hunt for long lost treasures. It also gives us Kinley who is on her first archaeological dig and the former Navy SEAL Shane who happens to be wondering round in Guatemalan jungle and who happens to be in the right place right time or … wrong place right time … it gives us friendly banter, camaraderie and the deep bond that Shane has with his friends and team. So if you like suspenseful adventure stories with some romance peppered through it then this book is for you AND I promise you that you will finish it in one sitting! I wonder what comes OR who comes next …

This was such a great book. It had the romance, it had the steamy scenes, it had the heart pounding action and a great story!
Kinley is traveling and from the get go has issues, she runs into Shane, literally and here our story takes off. I loved these two, she is strong in her own way but also not a run and hide type of heroine which I love . Shane was great and I really loved his friends too (i need to have their stories now).
This looks like it will be a great series and I cant wait to read them all.

What a brilliant read, I haven’t read many books by this author but when I do get my hands on one, I’m never disappointed. This one is no different, I was captivated from the start of this read, I was pulled in and was unable to put this read down.

This book has a bit of everything which makes it that much more better! It has suspense, action, adventure and let’s not forget the romance. To top off this read this author has created amazing characters that are relatable, lovable and connectable which made me love following their story throughout.

I was so invested in this read that I didn’t want it to end, but it now just makes me more excited to read book #2 to see where this author takes us! I can’t wait to read more from this series and this author, this is one not to be missed!
