Review: Way of the Warrior is a volume of hot romance reads that will take readers deep into the battle grounds that all heroes go through both in and out of duty tours. Our heroes struggle with their scars whether they are visible or the ones we can’t see unless they let us inside to view them.

The characters inside show us both the flaws and perfections of their personalities.

Harper is a tough tough enough woman to deal with being overseas in non-safe zones but will seeing the Marine again bring her back to her senses and lead her to put the past behind her and grip firmly onto the future?
