Losing her father in Desert Storm has left Stephanie James with a bitter soul when it comes to the military. As a college senior juggling a full course load, Steph's only goal is to graduate with honors at the end of the semester. She’s focused, determined, and a firm believer in all work and no play. Then she meets Brandon Walker at a New Year’s Eve costume party. Despite his disguise, Steph finds herself attracted to the camouflaged soldier who curls her toes with a scorching midnight kiss.
Brandon is an engineering major and ROTC student from the hills of Kentucky. Growing up as the son of a major general has given Brandon firsthand knowledge of the struggles military families sometimes face. Now that his father’s memory is fading, Brandon is even more determined to make his dad proud and graduate as an officer in the United States Army. Then he meets Stephanie, and suddenly, his focus is less on his military service and more on the pretty brunette who has stolen his heart. When he becomes aware of Steph’s resentment toward the military, he worries their relationship is doomed.
Steph unexpectedly finds herself in need of a roommate. Brandon volunteers, thinking it’s the perfect opportunity to show her the real Brandon, before he’s forced to admit the truth about his four-year obligation to the army. Afraid that living together will be a distraction to graduating on time, Steph establishes house rules—rules they both find difficult to obey.
When faced with the realization that she's fallen in love with a soldier, can Steph’s wounds from the past be healed with love in her present . . . and in her future?
Solider On by Sydney Logan
*was generously given this book in exchange for a honest review….Thank you
SOLIDER ON by Sydney Logan is a sweet, coming into one’s self, stand alone, happy ever after, love story. I cannot begin to tell you how much I loved this story. What a great read!!! I mean it. It is not something I would normally pick up because it almost borderlines on YA but I loved it none the less.
SOLIDER ON is the story of Steph and Brandon. Steph hates everything to do with the military and Brandon is in the ROTC program, about to graduate and has already signed up for 4 years. Problem!!!
It is a love story that evolves through friendship and love. Steph has her demons but as she faces them and becomes the person she is meant to be her fears disappear and she finds out what is truly important. Brandon is a NICE, respectable, deceit guy. I loved them both. It was a little strange, but I keep thinking, “Man, I hope my daughter finds a guy like this.” That is the best compliment I could give an author.
SOLIDER ON is a love story and goes back to old school values. Brandon treats Steph how a lady should be treated and takes care of his family. Again, I loved it. The best part on the whole story for me was the love of the 80s that Steph and Brandon have. There are many great movie references and who cannot love a guy that loves The Princess Bride and wears an Inigo Montoya shirt.
SOLIDER ON receives 5 out of 5 Platypires!!!
Texas Hugs and Happy Reading!!!
