Very sweet short story about Ben and Livvie from the book Warrior of the First to Fight series. They’ve been married for years and have 2 kids, so they are finding it difficult to make the time to just be alone together. I’d recommend reading Warrior first to get the full depth of Ben and Livvie’s love. Livvie is having some insecurities, but Ben does what he can to understand and support her. The love is strong between these two; not only the passionate side but the soul deep love they have for each other. A touching, heartfelt read. I loved getting to read more about Ben and Livvie!

I thought that this quick read novella was very enjoyable and a welcome extension of Ben and Olivia's story. This couple's story was featured in book two of this series, Warrior. I highly recommend that you read that book first, if you haven't already, to truly get the most out of this book. You can expect plenty of heart and heat while you read this book.

Valor is riveting, real, and refreshing. This story shows life as it truly is in its messiest, mundane, and trying form, and yet there is life-giving hope and love weaved in each word and touch and emotion. Even in our day to day lives, we are desperate for that hope and love to counteract the fear and anxiety that we face every second. Our goal needs to be finding a balance between the peace and the madness where we continue to treasure and savor the people in our life that matter most. Livvie and Ben stole my heart once again as I was given the immense gift of having another peek into their lives. We watch as they struggle to balance the chaos of life with the peace and love they invite to reign within the walls of their home. Life continues to test them, but they never fail to turn to each other and lean upon the solid rock of their love and commitment to each other. They invite the light of hope to remind them of what all they have overcome and will continue to overcome as long as remember to love, listen, and fight together. What is stronger then a love that has been tested and tried in the fires of destruction and tragedy? My heart leapt for joy knowing I would be visiting this beautiful and extraordinary couple again. I love watching their precious love guide their decisions and make them rich beyond measure. What a great sight to behold! Nothing is as breathtaking or as stunning. Their strength never fails to amaze and astound me as their come back from everything that life throws their way. What a fabulous partnership and trust they have. It is truly something beautiful to admire and emulate. Nicole Blanchard has swept my heart into a wonderous new adventure with this amazing small family who brings me to my knees with their powerful and uncompromising love and devotion. She is a fabulous author who truly admires the human spirit, and always appreciates the small things in life which never fail to be the most important things. So do not miss out on this wonderful addition to her series that thanks the service men and women of our country and their amazing families who sacrifice right along with them. What a fabulous tribute to their continued struggles and fierce courage they exhibit each and every day. Thank you!!

4.5 Fun, Moving & Steamy Stars! I loved this exploration of what happens after the HEA! Ben and Olivia are madly in love, but with work, kids, and life, time for their relationship can take a backseat. They try to find ways to be alone, but it's hard with two small kids and also a bit awkward at times. Olivia is harboring some fears as well that she isn't ready to give voice to. I love how Ben knows her so well and has such patience and love for her, and the kids. They are both wonderful parents, thoughtful and kind to each other and their chemistry is still as hot as ever. This is an honest, thought provoking, and sexy look at the challenges, insecurities, passion, love, and trust they bravely face together. I also loved catching up with all their friends and family that we have grown to love in this series. This was fun, tender, heartfelt and steamy romance!
