    Great Read

    I loved this one, another great addition to this beloved series. The characters were rich and interesting as always. Vince the snarky, funny bad boy who doesn't want to admit what a great guy he really is and Val the woman with a heart of gold and a soft spot for hard cases like Vince and the teens she works with. Together they make a journey of discovery that leads to a wonderfully happy ending. Another one to make me anxious for the next in the series, just keeps getting better.

    A Soldier’s Devotion
    By: Cheryl Wyatt

    This is another great book by Cheryl Wyatt! A Soldier’s Devotion is about a pararescue jumper, Vince Reardon, and his journey to faith. Have you had something happen in your past that you didn’t understand, or thought God had deserted you? You will have your faith restored by reading this book! As Vince learns, God doesn’t desert you. He has plans for you, and loves you. Things will happen that we don’t understand, but with our faith in God, we can overcome and be comforted.
    Valentina Russo literally runs into Vince and turns his world upside down. She causes him to rethink some of his beliefs, especially about him thinking God has turned His back on him. Vince has a thing about lawyers, and guess what Val’s occupation is? That’s right; a lawyer! She’s a perfect match for Vince, but can she convince him to look past her job? Cheryl does an awesome job of pulling you into the story. The characters become your best friends and you can’t wait to see how their story will end.
    A Soldier’s Devotion is faith-inspiring, has romance, and lots of humor. You will find you have a better perspective of God’s love and faithfulness once you read this book. And you will have laughed at the antics of the two main characters. Cheryl Wyatt is a very talented writer. I look forward to reading many more of her books and I highly recommend this one!

    "A Soldier's Devotion" by Cheryl Wyatt

    Attorney Valentina Russo (Val) is new in Refuge. She was on her way to the courthouse when she got a call on her cell phone that her aunt Elsie, who is in her 80s, had toppled down her basement stairs on a medical scooter. She got a ticket for talking on the cell phone while driving.

    She saw the red light too late and hit Vance Reardon and his custom-made bike. Though her aunt was in dire need of her, she stayed and prayed for him until the ambulance arrived. She got a ticket for disobeying the a traffic signal.

    Although she wasn't speeding according to the skid marks, she got a ticket for driving too fast for conditions.

    Vance Reardon was on his way to participate in a lifesaving mission with his U.S. Air Force pararescue jumper unit when he was careened into by Val in her sporty red car. Now his life was side-lined for two weeks, and the mission was passed off to another unit.

    Vance is seething that she wrecked his bike, because it was custom-built by his brother while in prison. A one-of-kind and irreplaceable-his brother was dead from a prison riot. He had been incarcerated for a crime someone else did.

    His sister,Victoria, and his father are estranged from him. Vince has no time for God, Christians or lawyers, though he did feel comforted while Val prayed for him at the accident before the ambulance arrived.

    Cheryl's story was delightful to read because of the dichotomy of Vince and Val's relationship- a touch-and-go relationship between the fiery rage of Vince clashing with Val's conviction that God lovingly wants her to minister to him. Yet Cheryl had the romantic sparks flying between them.

    Cheryl was able to pull together the intricate, instant reactions in Vince's demeanor with split-second timing, indicating a deeper level to his pain. The little nuances of his facial expressions spoke volumes to Val. Yet Val's transparency was so refreshing. She has Vince's tender side show when he was impressed with Val's level of involvement with the community, even though she was an attorney!

    What also made it delightful was seeing the slow changes in the love-hate relationship, and Vince's choice to trust. Cheryl plays this decision in a precise manner that gives you the thrills and chills that Val was feeling.

    God doesn't give up on the unlovely. No matter our dispositions. He loves us and wants us to be committed to Him. The question is whether Vince will stop running and surrender.

    This book was provided by the author in exchange for my honest review of her book. You will enjoy it! It's real-no pat answers. Raw emotions. Hard anger. Yet tenderness. A great read!
