Love in Any Language is the prequel to the Love and Honor series by Hallee Bridgeman. This story introduces the wonderful characters in the series. It is a well written, attention grabbing, fast moving and action packed story. This story show the closeness the military unit has and how well they work together. I like how this story shows a different side of what happened after 9-11 and how strongly it affected some who were not involved in the attacks. It shows the intense devotion Emma’s family had at that time and how it affected her life as she grew up. I especially enjoyed the deep friendship Pena had with a childhood friend and length he went to for her to feel secure about specific situations. This story also has some humor, especially with the nicknames the military unit members have.
This is a must read for anyone who enjoys military action stories.
I voluntarily received a complimentary copy for this story from the author, this is my honest review.
