ARC Review: Heartbreak Warfare by Heather M. Orgeron and Kate Stewart

Heartbreak Warfare is the best book I have read in 2018! I am new to Heather M. Orgeron and Kate Stewart, but this book was absolutely fantastic and definitely won’t be the last I read from them! Days after finishing this book, I am still thinking about it and ready to go back in because I am just not ready to leave these characters behind. 

I’m not going to go into much detail here, please go in blind for this one. This story centers around 3 characters, Katy, her husband Gavin and a soldier she meets while deployed named Briggs. Katy and Briggs get off on the wrong foot when they first meet, but after experiencing some life changing events, everything changes between them. Once Katy returns home, she is no longer the person she was, and she struggles with what that means for her future. 

There was not a character here that I disliked. They were each unique and had such genuine qualities about them that it was impossible not to love each of them. Gavin was amazing. A great husband and father. He was supportive and loving, caring and would truly do anything for those he loved. Briggs was everything you would imagine a soldier to be. Sexy and strong, smart and a bit on the cocky side. He was charismatic and I loved him right off. Katy was a devoted wife, mother and soldier. She had been raised with a duty to serve and really believed in helping others. She fit with each of them, and you could see such a strong connection to both of these men for very different reasons. There really was no wrong team here, and I was just hoping that we wouldn’t end up with one of them totally heartbroken at the end of this, because none of them deserved it. I definitely had a favorite and one I hoped would be Katy’s choice in the end, but I wouldn’t necessarily call it the one I hoped would win because I felt that strongly about all of them and there weren't really any winners here with these hearts on the line. 

This book deals with some very real and hard topics, and I loved that the authors didn’t shy away from them. This book absolutely wrecked me at times, and I felt so much. I really think that this book is one that everyone should read though and I cannot get it off my mind. I will definitely be reading this one again and I highly recommend it! Hands down the best book I’ve read this year!

ARC Review: An Affair with a Spare by Shana Galen

An Affair with a Spare is the third book in Shana Galen's Survivor Series. The Survivors are a group of men who were a part of a "suicide squad" in the war with France. Their missions were ones that they didn't expect to survive. However, some of them did make it through the war. This book showcases Rafe Beaumont, nicknamed "the Seducer" among their troupe. His expertise was to go undercover and seduce French women who were wives or close confidante's of French leaders and acquire information. While he didn't get much battle experience, he was in very risky situations.

Collette Fortier is the only daughter of an infamous French assassin. She is being blackmailed by the Royalists to attain British codes in exchange of her father's release from prison. She comes to England to spy upon military officials for the codes under the false name of Fournay. Collette finds herself without anyone to trust or turn to. She is determined to do whatever it takes to free her father, and cannot allow herself to be distracted by the handsome rake, Rafe Beaumont. Rafe has been tasked with finding out who Collette Fournay really is and what she's up to. She presents to Rafe his most challenging target of all as she seems to be completely disinterested in him.

One of the main things that bugged me in this book was how it was mentioned at least three times in just the first quarter that Collette's curvy figure wasn't the current fashion. Also, I got annoyed with Rafe because it seemed like he complained a little too much (even if it was only in his head) that he wasn't much of a fighter in his war days or that he didn't get to do more of the actual battle missions. He also seemed very unprepared for some of the dangerous situations he put himself and Collette through. The romance seemed to despairing. I felt like I was getting beat in the head about how there was no possible future for the couple together. These irritations might not seem horrible, but they were mentioned way too often for my liking.

Despite those irritating points, I still enjoyed this story. It was dangerous, and Collette wasn't just going to sit by the sidelines. She was determined to do whatever she had to do to save her father. There were some funny conversations about hedgehogs that made me laugh. It was a special type of romance where trust was a huge obstacle for them both. That challenge made a lot of this book more exciting. It was a true hurdle for this couple to jump to see whether it could work between them.

I liked this book, however I didn't feel it was at the same level as the previous two books. I still love the whole theme of the series with this brotherhood of survivors. I believe Jasper's book is next, and his has been the one I've been anxious for ever since I read book one! Excited to continue on this journey!
