The story picks up seven years following that fateful night with Patience finally getting up the courage to divorce her abusive, cheating, alcoholic husband, Greg. After a move to Alabama and back home to Montana during her marriage, Patience realizes she's a shell of the woman she used to be while she works in the cafe she opened in her parent's grocery store. This revelation, and her learning to stand on her own two feet again, coincides with Duke's return home to Montana after serving as a Marine in several tours that kept him away.
Duke avoided home during his service, in part, to avoid his feelings for Patience while pining for the woman who was married to another. Because of the distance they both put between themselves, neither were aware of the other's change in situation. Duke takes a job as a sheriff deputy upon his reluctant return home, made hastily by his medical discharge from the military.
Add in some meddling mothers and an aunt, and the pair are reunited unexpectedly when Duke shows up at the cafe, and the sparks fly once again. With some tension and so many secrets between them, it gets off to a rocky start, but the two eventually admit to each other they both still love one another and spill the secrets that have come between them.
This book has such a relatable story, it's hard not to get invested in the characters and their lives. I love the way the author paints the scenery and works in nuances to the characters' personalities and interpersonal relationships. These feel like your friends, family, or neighbors, and the author has you rooting for love to prevail through the whole book. It's an adorable love story with real life complications, and it makes the book read more like I personally see true love developing between two people, not just some sweet fairytale. It's possibly one of my favorite books I've read in a long time because of this.
Patience’s world was changing, everyone she loved went away but what hurt the most was the loss of her best friend. Nothing for seven years but heartache and loss but she is slowly rebuilding her life that is until her past comes back and she has to face it head on. Will she be able to share her most terrible secret with the one that could destroy her?
Duke could not bear to see the pain so he took off without a word and now he is coming home after years away and is determined to get back what is his. But there is one thing stopping him and he doesn’t want to share that secret with anyone who could see him less than a man. Will he take a chance and share every secret or will it be too much and lose his chance at love?
Brooke’s story is a second chance at love and about healing through the pain that life has thrown at you by being with the one you love.

Courage of Us is the first book in the code of Honor series by Brooke May. I have read a few of Ms. May’s books now and love the way she brings her characters to life, and how easily she is able to get her readers invested in both the story and the characters. Her characters are so realistic and entirely believable. It’s like I have known them for years, instead of only the few hours I was immersed in their story. I love Ms. May’s emotive and inviting style and the way she is able to make me ‘feel’ everything her characters have, and are, going through. I really felt for Patience and Duke and was rooting for them the whole way through. I really wanted them to find their HEA, together.
This is a wonderful second chance contemporary military romance, with emotion, pain, struggles, chemistry, drama, realism, courage, and more.
Ms. May delivers on all the promise held in the blurb, and then some. Now I am really looking forward to reading the next book in the series. Bring on Book #2!
Thank you, Ms. May!
