The Way of the Warrior
by Various Authors (Anthology)

May 5th 2015
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Format: eARC
Source: Publisher (Netgalley)
Rating: 5 Stars

     Every one of this stories was unique and even though most of them are part of an established series they can be read as a stand alone.

     I have to be honest and say that I've read only one of all this 8 authors and that is the only reason I requested this book. But I am really glad that I did because now I have more authors to look forward to reading. I am definitively reading the other books in the series of each author.

     In Hot as Hell (4 Stars) I would have liked this book to be longer. To show more in the life of the characters. There was something missing in the story and I think if the book was a novel instead I could have gotten what I wanted.

     In Plain Sight (5 Stars) was something different for me. When we read military romances the MC has either a missing limb, has PTSD or if gust flipping dandy. But what about those who's injuries leave them blind or deaf? Well here is one story that will tell you that they can get their HEA too.

     Torn (5 Stars) is a great start to this new series Protect and Serve which will be releasing it's first novel in November. This story even for been short had a lot going on and didn't leave you hanging. I loved the chemistry between Joe and Sadie and the way they protected each other.

     War Games (4 Stars) for me was like Hot as Hell, there was something missing. Maybe because it all happened in the span of 24 hours? I just would have liked it to be longer. For it to delve deeper into the story and the characters. But like Hot as Hell, it too was a great story. And if I'm not mistaken this is the only story not part of a series.

     In Beauty and the Marine (5 Stars) we got Griff who had been physically scarred in war and Kristy a model. I loved this story's "dirty" side. The mud races where very exiting and the chemistry between them was off the charts good. I just would have like like with all this stories that it was longer.

     NSDQ (5 Stars) was a very moving story because not everyone would have sacrificed themselves like that to save others. And it was a really beautiful thing what Clark did for Lois with the simulator. To show her that she couldn't have made a better choice if she had tried. To give her that little peace of mind.

     SEALed with Passion (5 Stars) I think it's the only story in which the MC will be going back to service. The author gives us a little of history the history between the characters and the reason with which Jonah left Alisha after a night together. But it all gets cleared up and now Jonah has to help Alisha finish up her work after he distracts her.

     Home Fire Inferno (5 Stars) is the only story I think you might need to read the previous books in the series to know where everyone is. But again it is not required. I understood the story all by it's own and I really liked it. The unity of the characters and the way they protect each other and all the willingness of each to do whatever they need to to keep others safe.
