Courage of Us (Code of Honor Book 1) by Brooke May – Review by Liz Vrchota

Courage of Us (Code of Honor Book 1)Courage of Us by Brooke May
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

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!

Courage of Us (Code of Honor Book 1)Courage of Us by Brooke May
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!

Couldn’t. Put. It. Down.

Seriously… when you have a well written book chock full of vivid imagery, suspense, romance, action, some history, and exotic locales… what isn’t to love?! This book had me riveted from beginning to end. There was never time to be bored or lose focus. The plot was quick, the action fast-paced, and the characters extremely relatable. I thoroughly enjoyed it and look forward to reading more from Deaton.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Found In The Lost by Tarina Deaton is a quick little romance in the jungle. All Kinley wants to do is show the world her accomplishment. Desperate to get to an archaeological dig so she can let her light shine she gets left out when she lands at the airport. All good love stories have a hero and Shane does not disappoint. A former Navy SEAL is there to pick up her pieces. Starting out Kinley doesn’t seem to be the strong individual that she turns out to be, in short, Kinley is surprising all the way around. This is a steamy little romance with some situations that might make some people uncomfortable. But a sweet little love story none the less.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I was hooked from the first few pages and I didn’t out this down until it was finished. The suspense kept me turning those pages and the sexy factor kept my eyelids open.

This is just a perfect story. First off I love jungle themes. Anything can and will happen there. Secondly I liked Kinley Dunn from the get go. She is smart and quick witted. The meeting between the two characters was a great way to introduce them. It was quick and showed the domineering side of Shane. He gets what he wants! Lastly The intro of Ace and Phantom was nicely done. The author wrote then well. I see the dangerous, I see the humorous And I see the protectiveness in them.

This is a dangerous story filled with protectiveness and love from the characters. This isn’t my first book by this author. I love how she writes and brings feeling to her characters. She did a great job with the spin off and i look forward to more from this new series.

Romance author Brooke May spends her days writing whatever her overactive imagination has brewed up and her evenings reading while she works alongside her mom. Telling stories is second natural to her, from a young age she has told anyone who would listen what she had thought up. Now, a mom of two, she splits her time writing, playing with her kids, and of course, hiking, hunting, fishing, and four-wheeling in her beloved Bighorn Mountains.

While on maternity leave with her youngest, Brooke was putting laundry away when she looked at a poem she had written in high school that was framed in her son’s bedroom. That poem triggered the idea of My Cowboy and soon she was sitting in front of her computer with her infant next to her writing her first love story that wasn’t a fanfiction.
