Cadence of Love brings hot cowboy-soldiers that are looking for new beginnings and a reason to start over. Can you handle the heat?
Alaina Bradford is a warrior. Her life has crashed and burned, but she manages to raise and protect a beautiful little girl in the middle of it all. When she meets two gorgeous cowboys offering help, she is no fool to decline. Lucky for her, they are not only cowboys, they are soldiers with all the accolades.
Leland and Burke have just left the army and are looking for something to hold on to. When they see Alaina and Lizzy, they know what they want, and they will do anything to get it. Like all real soldiers should be, they are loyal, faithful, hot and dangerous.
This book is well-written with amazing characters and a good world-built for a series. There is no cliffhanger at the end, but there is a promise of great tales in the future.
The author has created a group of soldiers that bands together for their next step after military life. All characters, main and secondary, are multi-dimensional with something interesting to tell.
I believe the love story was a bit rushed, but it is so beautifully described that it doesn't take away from the book. The passionate scenes are scorching hot with some very original moments.
This is my first book from Ms. Brooke, but definitely not my last. The author's writing style is creative, innovative and very well-rounded. She portrays characters with heart and soul, gives them life and makes the reader befriends them.
I would recommend this book for anyone that enjoys a very spicy romance, with true heroes and a kick-ass heroine.
