AKM Miles will grab you by the heart and not let you go. Soldier & Dillon will make you believe there is kindness and love out there for all the broken children who need a hero. Gom will get a grip on your heart that will stay with you long after you read this book. After reading Soldier I had to buy every thing I could find by AKM Miles.

I purchased book this not sure of what I would be getting. The basic story line is the redemption of a lost soul damaged in one of our wars. He meets another young man damaged and scarred physically by people unwilling to accept others in this world as they are, and the two fall in love and out of this love they are able to form a family to raise young boys who had been neglected, abused, and unloved by their biological families until they could become productive, functional young men.
I liked the book so much that I went back and ordered the sequel.

This is one of those feel good stories that will stick with you for a long time. 2 men, each damaged in their own right, come together to help a household of equally damaged boys that can't possibility fit into the system without further damage. They each recognize a kindred spirit and fall in love, and together take on whatever threatens their boys. There was a bit of criticism for not dealing with the stories of 5 of the boys - I can understand why that wasn't done, or the story would have been unmanageable. That said, there are a couple of the boys that I'd love to know more about. One of them, for all you only see him 3 or 4 times, is a tough little heart stealer. I've read this book probably 4 times now, and will continue to do so. It's well-written and the main characters are well developed. An excellent read.

This is such a beautiful book. It's rare when you read a book where you love all the characters, and get involved in the story. Plenty of angst, that resolves. I love this authors books. I love of family is always exhibited. No need to tell the story. It's just nice to get lost in a heartfelt book.

I bought it at least a year ago, but It didn't tranxfer from one kindle to the next so I bought it again for my fire. There are times when I can't belive man's inhumanity to man Let alone children.
when I read this book and its sequel for Goms sake I feel there are real heros in this world. This book is a must read. especially for anyone who loves the part of us wich is most vulnerable.

Soldier and Dillon have both physical and emotional scars, but instead of hiding in fear, they both decided to help other scarred people on their own way. Dillon is taking care of 7 foster kids, and Soldier decides to help them; Dillon was given the use of one of Soldier's properties, and when Soldier arrives to the house to check on it, it finds Dillon and the kids needs a lot more than only a roof above their heads. Soldier is a wealthy man, even if he has never used any of the money he inherited by his parents; he instead decided to enlist, and now he is retired, no more able to fight, but still scarred by what he saw. When he meets the kids, he understands what will be his next fight, help them, and in helping them, he will heal his emotional scars.

Dillon's himself got badly hurt, but he has still an open and trusting heart, and it's even too easy for him to fall for Soldier. Dillon doesn't see Soldier's physical scars, probably since Soldier doesn't see his either, but he is aware that allowing Soldier to help the kids, will also help Soldier to reconcile with the world around him. Plus Dillon has taken a very personal interest in Soldier.

The novel is very much heavy on the emotional layer, and I don't hide that I shed a tear or two reading it. I was not really worried about these characters, the average feeling was that Soldier was always ready to find a solution, pretty much helped by all the money he had, but nevertheless, there were small kids, and puppies, and well, it was impossible not to be touched by all of them.

In the end it was almost a fairy-tale with a dark side, but if all the real life stories had an happy ending like this one, I would take the dark side and even more. I really hope somewhere in the world there is a safe house for small kids like the one of Dillon and Soldier, I bet it's a wonderful place to be.

What a wonderful story of love and life. The characters were so real to me and I was able to know each one. If there was anything about the book that I could not love, it was that solder seemed to good to be true; but at the same time I just knew that he did exist if only on the pages of this book. I finished the book and went straight to the next one.
