Sheep Book Review: Soldier Mine: A Sons of War (standalone novel) by Lizzy Ford

Soldier Mine: A Sons of War (standalone novel)+

Pages: 183
Release Date: 6 January 2015

A wounded war hero afraid to risk his heart …
A waitress with a troubled past.

Petr’s life changed overnight when an ambush not only killed his twin, but left him wounded beyond repair as well. A year and a half later, he has built a new life but still struggles with the fear he didn’t deserve to be saved and purposely won’t risk having his heart broken again.

Until he meets Claudia, the sister of a troubled boy Petr meets during a recruitment trip to a local school. Claudia has her own demon in the form of an abusive ex-boyfriend who won’t stop stalking her. She’s weary of starting over in a new place every other month and working to make ends meet to support her younger brother, who she fears is going to take matters into his own hands soon by confronting the man chasing them.

Can a man who views himself as broken, and a woman unable to trust, help each other heal?

There's really a lot to like about this book. For someone who loves the dark and edgy side of PNR, this author did a great job of keeping me interested in the characters and how the whole saga would unfold.

Petr is one sexy military man, wounded and missing his leg, this male in no way is lacking. Anything. He's all kinds of sex appeal wrapped in a coffee and pie blanket. Yummy. His aching heart will reach out to you and his loyal character traits make you fall for the solider. He can take me to his prison any day!

Claudia is solely taking care of her younger brother, but it's not really clear why. Or maybe I missed that part. Which seems odd, since the mother is still alive but she does not have custody of the teen. But that said, the brother/sister dynamic was a nice touch to the overall feeling of the story. Maybe a few portions needed to be smoothed out in the dialog, but overall the interactions were believable.

I would have liked more interplay between the characters before they got hot and heavy. Petr shows up at the diner Claudia works out, but there's not much talking going on. And after about 20 times of him heading over there for pie, I was a little bit bored. Maybe some funny situations or movement between the chapters would have helped.

This story can be read as a stand alone, but it's technically book two in this alpha male series of sexy military men. It's worth a read for those who love an enjoyable romance!
