*FREE EPUB ☉ A Soldier for Keeps ☇ Ebook or Kindle ePUB free
I loved this book great emotion a little slow but a lovely story Pierce and Lexie have both decided they do not want to love anyone again because you just get hurt.They decide they can be friends, and e mail each other during Pierce s military deployment Both recognize they have feelings that arethan friendship, but are determined not to let them grow or share these with the other The happy ending came very abruptly and maybe a little far fetched for me But I loved their time together at the college, and Pierces time with his family to swing me to a 4 star rating.It was a happy finding that I made that this was the same Lexie character I loved from another Jillian Hart book.
I found this book at a library sale and I m very glad for that It is one of the best stories I ve ever read Jillian Hart has created a series revolving around the McKaslin clan A Soldier For Keeps tells the story of Lexie and Pierce Two very different people on the outside but with very similar values and perceptions There are several books on this series and I will be looking for them all. I love books with military heroes heroines, so this was an easy choice to pick up I really like Harlequin s new line of books that don t have all the sex, just the romance This was a good book with a great start and two great main characters I started out thinking I would give it 4 stars, but toward the end the whole angst thing between the two was starting to get old, as the author had started it quite near the beginning And then the end I felt she just sort of threw on because she was tired of the angst thing, too, and didn t know what else to do or hit the required limit or something However, despite that, I still very much enjoyed the story and characters and would recommend it for someone who wants a light romance minus the sex. Sacchrine Love Inspired story that just held NO surprises The only reason I picked it up was because I LOVE correspondence literature, and this is a letter writing book.Lexie is THE most boring character ever written into a novel She s a grad student who loves horses and skis, sure, but it s completely incongruous to her personality She s a drag a bookworm except that she has no passion for it or horses, or skiing, or anything else The way Lexie acts toward Pierce from moment one is forced by the author.Pierce is a daredevil Special Forces guy who is gung ho and no fear, of course But it s completely incongruous to HIS actions, which include sitting around on his butt with a boring girl with a broken leg, pontificating about the horrors of war and the desperate need to keep our nation secure He s afraid of horses, wanders museums, is all about long games of chess, writes long e mails The author needs to figure out what she wants her characters to be, for pity s sakes.NEITHER of these characters made ANY sense And of course the don t want a relationship the WHOLE time that they do, so it just gets reeeeeally long and tedious, after a while Worse, they spend all of their time talking over themselves He ll talk about his family, and instead of her saying something about what he s said, or asking questions, she s all Yeah, well MY family And this happens constantly, the whole book through.But it wasn t just that The author wrote dumb She writes in a year from now which would either be in a year or a year from now, but not both She has his family raising cattle and over a dozen horses on ten acres Now, I ve owned ten acres There s not ROOM for a dozen horses and cattle on a plot that big, let alone what you d need to grow to feed em, hello She introduces a possible exciting plot idea a cougar but never develops it, so the blah book remains a blah book.Worse, it s crap christianity, too She s got his brother in Heaven, even though scripture says only Messiah has ascended, as the firstfruits, and nobody else is there, yet Spirituality is vague references to church and some dinner prayers and a few help me, Lords Just really disappointing. I loved this story, and enjoyed the viewpoints and lifestyle of a soldier that were woven into the plot The characters of Lexie and Pierce were presented in such a clear way that I truly felt like I knew them, and it kept me very interested in what was going to happen It did seem like the ending went a little too quickly from one extreme of feelings to the opposite extreme, and that made it slightly less believable A littletime might have made it seemplausible For that reason only it is closer to 4.5 stars, but a great, light read when that is what you are searching for. *FREE EPUB ↡ A Soldier for Keeps ☊ Lexie Evans Is Not Looking For A Relationship With Pierce Granger And That S Just Fine By The Handsome Soldier Neither One Has Time For Romance, But They Can Both Commit To Friendship, Right Then, After Months As Pen Pals, Pierce Visits Lexie S Family Ranch In Wyoming Face To Face With Her Friend, Lexie Realizes Her Feelings Toward Him Have Changed She S Finally Ready For Love But Is Pierce Ready To Be Hers For Keeps Not bad overall, but kind of predictable I kind of like books like this to have a littledrama or something to really pull you in The characters also jumped back and forth between actually admitting to themselves that they liked each other and then telling themselves that it could never work Overall, not bad, but not a favorite either Give me a story with a littleunpredictability and drama.
