Such a deeply heartfelt book of loss and love! Griff has always thought of Sophie as his, but he's not the kind of man who can express his softer side. Heck, he can barely express his harder side, but when he does, watch out! Sophie is a beautiful girl, inside and out, and she has only wanted Griff with all her heart. Theirs was a pain-filled story, full of misunderstandings and hidden feelings. I felt their pain and suffering as well as Sophie's steely strength. This was a short read, but it packed such an emotional punch!

Can another person give us the will to live? Sophie and Griffin have known and loved each other for years. Each thought that they weren’t good enough for the other so they went their separate ways. Her to work and school, him to war. When they finally get back together Griffin has cancer and nowhere to go so he moves in with Sophie. Will they be able to see their love for what it is? Will cancer end their love too soon?

An emotional journey that I felt right down to my bones. I cried, I got chills and I had to take a few breaks to collect myself. Griffin is by far one of the most complex men I have read about lately. He only wants to know what love is like but he never had it growing up and doesn't know how to show it either. Sophie fell for Griffin right from the start and she never stopped loving him. She didn't understand why he treated her the way he did, and it broke her. Watching these two travel the road to healing and a future was truly a rolloercoaster of emotion. Sophie and Griffin had so much to work through and it was done beautifully!

Only Jo Raven could turn a villain into a tortured hero that we can all get behind! Well done, great shorter read but still lots of 'meat' to dig into. Loved Sophie's character as well and was happy to see her return from previous books.

This was an amazing read. There is just something about a tortured hero and they do not get much more tortured than Griffin. This is a character that will touch your heart and leave a scar that will last forever. Sophie was incredibly strong and likable. She was perfect for Griffin in every single way. I loved this emotional romance that was just heart achingly beautiful.

Injured ex-millitary Griffin Lambert was fighing cancer alone ... that is, until the beautiful Sophie came back into his life and moved him into her apartment. There is only one thing Griffin wants ... to love Sophie. But Griffin doesn't know how to do that. Nor does he deserve her. College student Sophie Parker has loved the handsome Griffin from afar since high school and wants a second chance with him. Sophie made some mistakes and Griffin deserves better than her but that's not going to stop her from fighting for them and showing Griffin that he wants her. But with Griffin fighting cancer and being told by people in Sophie's life that he doesn't deserve her, will Griffin and Sophie get their HEA together? Strength is an emotional, angsty and steamy story that will have you rooting for the hero and heroine to be together despite the odds.

Strength by Jo Raven is another wonderful read by this fantastic author. I can't express how much I love her books and she's one of my very few one-click authors. Strength is part of the Wild Men and the Cards of Love series. This is Griff and Sophie's story. I already met Sophie in Merc's book and I wanted to learn more about here the whole time. And now - Yay - here is her story. Griffin is an man whom was dealt bad cards in his life. He's ex-military, is very sick and is in love with Sophie for a long time. He has to undergo severe procedures to get better and he longs for Sophie. But she's strictly off limits. Sophie is happy that her twin, Cosima found her HEA with Merc. But she is unhappy in love with Griff since forever, but the depressed man is clueless. Both ahve a lot of issues to work through, but love conquers. Strength is a raw and gritty read, a heart-wrenching pageturner that gave me all the feels. I give 5 wonderful stars.

This has probably been my favorite out of all Jo Raven’s books and yes, I have read them all! This book was such an emotional read and really allowed you to take the journey with the character. We got a small glimpse of the characters in this book ( Sophie and Griffen) in another book Jo wrote about Merc & Cos (Sophie’s twin sister) called Dark Child. Sophie and Griffen has been a couple for a short while when things fell apart for the couple. After some twists and turns Sophie shows up at Griffen’s door step to try to mend the broken bridges between them but learns a heart breaking truth. Not only does she need to win Griffen’s heart back but she has to stand by while he fights for his life becoming a shell of his former self. Griffen lacks communication skills when it comes to Sophie everything he does or says seems to cause another hurdle for them. Now she is determined to be back in his life no matter what he says or does. While he fights for his life he is fighting to keep Sophie at a distance. But when it comes to matters of the heart things don’t always go as planned. With the possibility of death looming over this couple is rekindling the flames really worth the risk of a broken heart? This book is absolutely a must read for anyone even if you haven’t read any other Jo Ravens books you can read this one. It made me laugh, cry and even smile which makes this a fantastic book in my opinion. I wish I could write even longer review but I don’t want to give out any spoilers! This is a A+++++ read for my 2019 book log! #GriffenIsMyBookBoyfriend

This is Sophie and Griffin’s story, which is raw, gritty, heartbreaking, tragic, emotional, and loving. Sophie is determined to nurse Griffin back to health whiles he endures and battles to find the strength to endure and overcome a horrendous illness. This is a beautifully written story from this exceedingly talented author, and I was totally captivated throughout this addictive page turner, and I cannot wait to read more from her, and I highly recommend her work for all.

Sophie and Griffin was fantastic it was well written and developed. Sophie is a strong woman and loves Griffin to death. Griffin is a veteran and is suffering he hides it from everyone but Sophie. This story is emotional but beautiful I was glad to see Griffin get the love he needed .

Strength is Superb!! I’m so glad Jo decided to write this story. I wondered what was happening with Sophie and Griffin. This story was very powerful and true to what a lot of veterans go through when they return from war. I’m so glad Sophie could see through it all and see Griffin for what he really is. I enjoyed this story immensely. So glad to see them end up together. Jo Raven rocks!

This book just brought me to my knees. It’s raw, heartbreaking but through it all, there was so much love. I’ve always wondered about Sophie and Griff’s relationship since we’ve only got to see Cos’s side. She was so angry at him and Sophie was so vague that I’ve always thought he was a jerk but now I see what he was going through, it just broke my heart. He needed so much love but couldn’t communicate. For all his struggles, I’m happy he’s found his HEA.
