Book Description

Career soldier Christie Collins figured out early that love could be lost in the blink of an eye, leaving an empty place that was just another pothole on life's rocky road. The detours of sudden single fatherhood and a nosy best friend who won't let even death stop her from interfering in every date leave Christie convinced that finding a partner is next to impossible.

State Trooper Robert Lindstrom catches Christie speeding along the stretch of highway he patrols and a routine traffic stop turns into love lights flashing and instant attraction for these two men in uniform. It looks like smooth sailing to their happily ever after until an unexpected deployment sends Christie into danger. Can their love survive both bombs and the betrayal of Christie by his closest comrade?

5.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyed this book completely! May 15, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
In reading some of the other reviews, I wonder what book they were reading? I did not find this story boring, or for young adults. It is a mature, funny, quirky love story for adults! I completely enjoyed the entire book! Yes Christ on a cracker, etc. was a bit repetitious, but I wonder if the criticizing readers ever really listen to the amount of swear words that they toss out every day.

No this was not a dramatic, angst, cliff hanging, nail biting story. It was written as a lite bit of entertainment to take the readers minds off of some of their day to day doldrums. I will be looking into other books from this author in the future. I completely enjoyed the story and I am very glad that I bought the book!

An avid reader in Rock Tavern, NY.

1.0 out of 5 stars Gender Confusion November 15, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
With the principal character assigned a female name, I thought I was reading about a woman for the first several pages. Poor writing, silly plot. If you're looking for a novel with believable and reasonably masculine characters, this is not a book for you. I struggled through the first half and then gave up on it.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Soldier & the State Trooper by Cherie Noel June 6, 2012
By Elisa
Romance in full swing. That is probably the entire review in 4 words, but I will add more, don't worry. Christie (that despite the name and the looks is a man) is the unexpectedly single father of Frankie, unexpected since a) Christie is completely gay and b) he was supposed to be only the biological father, a favour he was doing to his best friend Caro and her partner Liss. But then Caro and Liss died in a car accident and Christie is the father of Frankie, and of course he has to take care of her, doesn't matter Christie is a career soldier soon to be deployed. He strikes the lottery when he meets State Trooper Robert Lindstrom, that not only is the Norwegian god the name suggests, he is also ready to be part of an already made family and has a lot of relatives ready to give an hand if necessary.

That between Robert and Christie is love and lust at first sight, and Christie doesn't really need much wooing to allow Robert into his life and above all bed, 2 steaks and a bottle of wine and he was ready to open the door (no pun intended). Truth be told, Christie was probably on a too long dry spell, and Robert is the answer to many prayers, he is the oddity among the gay guys, someone who is not scared by commitment and a toddler.

I liked the full romance mood of the story, I liked the happy ending and I also liked they had some trouble but nothing major they couldn't face and manage. I think the army setting was good and realistic, maybe I wondered of the chance of an openly gay man like Christie, that apparently is screaming "gay" as soon as you see him, to be a career soldier with apparently no trouble from his fellow soldiers and commanding officers.

More About the Author

Butcher, baker, candlestick maker...ummm, eww, every chance I get, and I surely would if these damn characters would ever shut up. Born in West Palm Beach, Florida and, is all over the damn place a sufficiently descriptive term? No? Then how about this? Tinker, tailor, Indian chief...Ooooh, especially when smexy men are involved (!), only under duress, and did the cheek-bones give it away?
Seriously? I've lived in Washington D.C., Virginia, Upper Michigan, Texas, New York, California, and Alabama in the United States; Hessen in Germany, London in England, Masirah Island in Oman and...sometimes it was in a house, sometimes in a tent, and sometimes anyplace I could find to lay my head.
I've been in love with words since before I drew breath, and I don't see that ever changing. I write stories. Sometimes I write music with them, sometimes they're poems, and lately, to my great delight, M/M erotic romance. Yum. Smexy man to the second...or third that's the kinda math I can get behind!!
The hair curls or frizzes as it will, the eyes are green and tend to look in two different directions--no, really--and the rest is subject to change. You know the guy who didn't know if he was a butterfly dreaming he was a man or a man dreaming he was a butterfly? Yeah, that's me, but substitute drag queen for butterfly and wacky, wild ex-Army chick for man.
