4 Heart Review by Ashley
Oh my yes! PJ Fiala is a brand new author to me but I am a BIG fan. I was so into this from the first page. The suspense and danger kept my pulse pounding. And there was so many twists that I had no idea what was going to happen next.
I liked Sophie. A lot. She was such a strong woman both physically and emotionally but the events of the past few months left her feeling unlike herself; vulnerable. Not knowing what to do, she turned to the one man she knew would be able to help, Gaige. Talk about an alpha male! Protective and powerful. And pining for Sophie for more years than he cares to admit. He knew he had to help her when she called, but he had no idea the mess she was in.
With all the time Sophie and Gaige were spending in close quarters trying to get to the bottom the turn her life had taken they were able to talk a lot. Even with the mystery and danger escalating, they put their long harbored feelings out in the open. And both were beyond shocked and pleased that those feelings were reciprocated. These two had chemistry in spades! They were dynamite between the sheets.
It was a steady build. As some questions were answered, more popped up. And it was a tangled web of lies, secrets, deceit, and powerful men and one willful woman. I was absolutely glued to my kindle to see what Sophie, Gaige and his team would uncover next. Though, I found the way everything wrapped up a hair anticlimactic, I still didn't see most of the twists coming. Defending Sophie was a good start to what I'm hoping is an awesome new military suspense series.

Writing has been a desire my whole life. Once I found the courage to write, life changed for me in the most profound way. Bringing stories to readers that I'd enjoy reading and creating characters that are flawed, but lovable is such a joy.
When not writing, I'm with my family doing something fun. My husband, Gene, and I are bikers and enjoy riding to new locations, meeting new people and generally enjoying this fabulous country we live in.
I come from a family of veterans. My grandfather, father, brother, two sons, and one daughter-in-law are all veterans. Needless to say, I am proud to be an American and proud of the service my amazing family has given.
