Review ~ Soldier On by Sydney Logan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Sydney Logan is one of the handful of authors that I will read anything she writes. Her story is about love, trust, fear, anger, the military, real life adult issues, health, and so much more, and it’s heartbreaking in some moments and completely heart melting in others.
I have to say that I love military stories and this one was no exception. She brought together a mixture of characters and personalities that blended so well and learned what family really means. Every single character was well formed and became someone I wanted to know. They were real, with real life issues, and special. There were struggles, secrets, growth, trust, and a beautiful ending.
It’s a must read and, believe me, you won’t regret it. You’ll be enthralled in the rich story of Brandon and Steph. Their fears, pains, and joys will touch you as if they were your own.
I truly think this is her best story yet and can’t wait to see what’s next for Ms. Logan.
Will his call of duty break both their hearts?
Losing her father in Desert Storm has left Stephanie James with a bitter soul when it comes to the military. As a college senior juggling a full course load, Steph’s only goal is to graduate with honors at the end of the semester. She’s focused, determined, and a firm believer in all work and no play. Then she meets Brandon Walker at a New Year’s Eve costume party. Despite his disguise, Steph finds herself attracted to the camouflaged soldier who curls her toes with a scorching midnight kiss.
Brandon is an engineering major and ROTC student from the hills of Kentucky. Growing up as the son of a major general has given Brandon firsthand knowledge of the struggles military families sometimes face. Now that his father’s memory is fading, Brandon is even more determined to make his dad proud and graduate as an officer in the United States Army. Then he meets Stephanie, and suddenly, his focus is less on his military service and more on the pretty brunette who has stolen his heart. When he becomes aware of Steph’s resentment toward the military, he worries their relationship is doomed.
When faced with the realization that she’s fallen in love with a soldier, can Steph’s wounds from the past be healed with love in her present . . . and in her future?
