Will his call of duty break both their hearts?

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.

**REVIEW**
I was kindly provided with an advance copy in exchange for an honest review


So what did I think of Soldier On?  I can quite honestly say I loved it, I started it at 9pm and had it finished for just after 11pm, nothing was gonna stop me from finishing it!

Steph and Brandon's story is just beautiful and quite refreshing too in that it is not a young adult book filled with sex!

Steph James is a college senior with her only ambition at the moment to graduate and become a teacher, what she doesn't plan is meeting a guy and falling in love.  She meets Brandon briefly at a New Year's party where he is her midnight kiss, she is dressed as Belle and he is a soldier, the kiss is unforgettable but before she can get his name he vanishes.

They meet up again in a shared literature class and get to know one another, discovering shared interests such as a love of all things 80's, from the start Brandon is extremely flirty determined to get his girl, he is smitten and all does go really well until a spanner hits the works.

Steph has grown up never knowing her Father, he died in Desert Storm, she hates the military, she is fed up of hearing that her dad is a hero and he died for his country, soldiers are a no no which leads to a problem, the one thing that Brandon has not told her about is the fact that he is one and he is signed up for four years.

He tries to keep it secret and as Steph finds herself looking for a room mate he decides that he is perfect for the position and the two end up living together but with some no touching rules firmly in place which prove to be difficult for this young couple with such amazing chemistry.  

With the help of Steph's best friends Tessa and Xavier, Brandon has to decide whether to tell Steph or to keep it hidden but the decision is made for him when she discovers his dog tags, she is furious to say the least and she throws him out but she loves him and he loves her, can they overlook all the obstacles in their way and can Steph get over her hatred of the military?  Well get going and download the book to find out!!

It is a great read, the characters of Tessa and Xavier, Steph's friends are also well written - maybe they need a book as they have quite a big story of their own! Also the parents of Brandon and Steph, especially Brandon's dad who had Alzheimer's are great additions and never feel like they have been tagged on.

As I said this book is refreshing in that we have a young couple with a huge amount of chemistry but they don't jump in to bed straight away, now I am by no means a prude but maybe just a little jaded after reading gazillions of books where the leading characters are in bed by page 3.

One thing I would love - maybe a novella!! is to find out how Brandon and Steph continue their lives after the end of this book, you do find out a little at the end but I don't know I feel like their story hasn't quite finished yet but I guess that is up to their boss Sydney!!

It is out now and it is awarded 5 out of 5!
