Semper Fi: The Education of Caroline: The Education of Caroline (The Education Series Book 3)

Ten years ago US Marine Sebastian Hunter was a teenager in love with a married woman—a woman who broke his heart.

Kicking his heels in a desk job in Geneva, he’s given the chance to get back to the action. Life just might be worth living again … until he meets the woman who broke him 10 years earlier.

Now she’s back, but he’ll do anything to keep her at arm’s length. Temptation doesn’t come much stronger, but he’d be a fool to fall for her again…

Caroline Venzi is a successful journalist, preparing to head out to report from the front lines of the war in Afghanistan. Love is the last thing on her mind when she crosses paths with Marine Sebastian Hunter.

Will this chance encounter reignite the erotic passion of their past?

This story is a re-telling of the best-selling contemporary romance ‘The Education of Caroline’, now told from US Marine Sebastian Hunter’s point of view.

Every one that knows me, KNOWS! my love of anything JHB but my favourite series of all time is The Education of Sebastian and The Education of Caroline. So when I heard we were getting the Education of Caroline told from Sebatian’s POV I pee’d just a little.

I was worried because I had read the story I would maybe get a bit bored as I have in the past with re telling but from his POV. It…didn’t happen. It was awesome being in Sebastian’s head, He is some man. I love how Jane captures his vulnerability when it comes to Caro.  The passion between them is still as hot as it has ever been and it just shows as the saying goes True love never dies.

Tell your heart that your fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself.

These words rang true to myself. As always with Jane there are a lot of note worthy lines. a few of my favourite came from Signora Carello Who owns a place where they stayed on their Italian travels

Amor regge senza legge- Love rules without Laws

and this one, I just adored.

L’amore mantiene giovani – The heart that loves is always young.

That’s an excuse to stay as young as you like 😉

Knowing what you know from TEOC you’ll all be prepared for a certain time in their lives, in TEOC I wanted to give him a good old slap! but now all I want to do is give him a hug. To hear his thought was heart breaking and you can see why Jane is so passionate in helping her chosen charities. All in all a must read for me, especially if you are a fan of the previous books.

WTF

Walk Through Fire (The Chaos Series Book 4)

The flame never dies . . .

Millie Cross knows what it’s like to burn for someone. She was young and wild and he was fierce and even wilder-a Chaos biker who made her heart pound. They fell in love at first sight and life was good, until she learned she couldn’t be the woman he needed and made it so he had no choice but to walk away. Twenty years later, Millie’s chance run-in with her old flame sparks a desire she just can’t ignore. And this time, she won’t let him ride off . . .

Bad boy Logan “High” Judd has seen his share of troubles with the law. Yet it was a beautiful woman who broke him. After ending a loveless marriage, High is shocked when his true love walks back into his life. Millie is still gorgeous, but she’s just a ghost of her former self. High’s intrigued at the change, but her betrayal cut him deep-and he doesn’t want to get burned again. As High sinks into meting out vengeance for Millie’s betrayal, he’ll break all over again when he realizes just how Millie walked through fire for her man . . .

Walk through fire is about Millie and High (Logan, low) They were madly in love in their youth, Millie ditched High after 3 years but no-one ever knew why. They were perfect for each other. Millie was born to step in to the shoes of an old lady. So why after such an epic tale of love did Millie through it all away?

After 20 years Millie sees High in a Chipolte and from there things get explosive and very very dirty with a little heart-break thrown in for good measure. New friendships are made along the way.

Fuck them. All of them. Especially Logan. He was dead to me.

There is a lot of heart-break along the way. Millie’s secret broke my heart, I just wanted to hug her and slap High for being so blind!

I found from all the old ladies I connected with Millie more than the others. She was just existing until High came back in to her life with the usual bang you’d expect from Chaos. We also get a few povs from Tack and Tyra. I don’t want to give away too much to spoil the read. I only had one issue with the book and that was the length. I felt there was some bits that could have been removed and would have still kept the amazing story line running. but as always I got to the end of the book and wanted more.

I mean who doesn’t want more of a KA Alpha!
