Another great read!!
Susan Stoker wrote such a great book with this one! Erin Mallon did an awesome job narrating the story, and she was spot on the entire time. It is so easy with her narration, to not get lost while reading.
This is TJ’s (the highway patrol officers) story. In the story, TJ was medically discharged from the army after a mission went wrong. he came home with a chip on his shoulder and his thinking all messed up. he made a decision and had to deal with that decision. now a few years later, he accidentally sees her again. she’s the woman who has held and still holds his heart. she has a secret though. she has a huge secret! she also has a job with some very bad guys (unbeknownst to her).
Can TJ handle her secret?
Can he forgive her secret??
Can he save her when her bosses find out???
This is a great read!!!

Loving and forgiveness lead the way in this book. Learning how to triumph after tragedy. This book holds you captivated until the end
TJ gets his story
I have been looking forward to TJ’s story for awhile now and I was not disappointed. Justice for Milena is one of the best second chance romances I’ve read. With such a deep and moving story tied together with the suspense, there is no doubt that all of Susan Stoker’s fans will be pleased with TJ’s long awaited happy ending. While there are dark themes, Mrs. Stoker doesn’t delve into them and they are written in an extremely classy way, they are just hinted upon the right amount that it adds a certain element to the bad guys. Mrs. Stoker has upped the ante and gone to the next level with romantic suspense that will be hard to beat.
TJ and Milena's story was wonderful. Full of emotion, bad guys, good friends and lots of love. I hate spoiler alerts so I won't make one, but this book had many moments that caused me to say, "Awww!". Read it. Trust me. You'll love it too.
This is a perfect hero story
Thomas James “TJ” Rockwell is a broken man, discharged from the Army after terrorists left him the only one alive killing off the rest of his team. Unable to cope with the pain and loss once he is living stateside, TJ is a shell of the man he once was. His anger consumes him and he finds he is unable to enjoy the woman who has come to mean the world to him so after a tough decision he up and leaves in the middle of the night, no word, no trace that he even existed in her life. TJ walks out and leaves behind the one good thing in his life, Milena Reinhardt.
Three years went by and Milena Reinhardt never stopped loving TJ Rockwell. It didn’t mean she would open up her arms and allow him to jump right back in where things left off. Hell no. TJ broke her heart when he walked out in the dead of night without a word. Just because you love someone doesn’t give them the right to walk back in and trample your heart all over again. She isn’t sure she could survive it twice.
TJ doesn’t make is easy for Milena to say no. He regretted walking out every day for the past three years. He plans to make it up to her every day for the rest of his life, but first he has a duty to protect her from a sick pervert that is on the loose. Once the man is caught then TJ can move forward with their future because he doesn’t plan on having one without Milena in it.
Justice for Milena has every element that makes a good hero romance. A broken, repentant man who puts his woman first without being an over the top dominant jerk. And the heroine is strong, but also smart enough to lean on the hero so she isn’t cocky. TJ and Milena are the perfect combination together and I was rooting for them the entire way.
Justice for Milena is also a lead in to Stoker’s next novel Rescuing Sadie which I know is nothing new in the writing world, but I’m super excited because this book ties two author’s worlds together; Masters and Mercenaries by Lexi Blake and Delta Force Heroes by Susan Stoker. I am a fan of both worlds, I loved this book, so I’m super pumped to continue reading what Stoker brings to the table next.

Another fantastic book by Susan Stoker in the Badge of Honor series. Ut felt as if I could actually “feel” the feelings between TJ and Milena as they work thru issues and mistakes made. I laughed out loud with the diaper scene in the book. I enjoy reconnecting with past characters and love when you get glimpses of what the next books will be. Can’t wait.
I was fortunate enough to receive this book as an ARC, but I always purchase the ebooks in support of the author.
I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
All kinds of swoon worthy goodness!

Oh boy. Lots and LOTS going on in this one. We have a second chance romance ~ which was all kinds of sweet and smexy and had a nice little twist dropped in there for good measure. Psycho baddies ~ that’s right, not one but two baddies who definitely landed on their heads when they went down the rabbit hole. And not one, but two teases for upcoming books. On top of trying to keep track of who everyone is and where they belong (series wise) this one definitely made my head spin a bit, but I wouldn’t have had it any other way as I kept turning the pages to see what would happen next.
TJ is determined in that way that only an Alpha AF male could be and yet has no problem showing his softer side. He’s made mistakes, but the way he owns up to them with blunt, open honesty made it easy to forgive him and fall in love with him. Milena I loved, I did. The woman is compassionate and is determined to make her own way, but understands that asking for help and accepting it when it is offered is also part of the process, but...I did have to question how she didn’t realize the situation she was apart of was hinky. That was my only real HUH?!? Moment with her, but it was still a moment.
TJ and Milena’s second chance journey was actually all kinds of heartwarming. Things progress slowly between them, as they should considering what happened between them, but I really liked how honest they both were with each other ~ even if it took a bit of prodding by outside sources. I loved how TJ basically bared his soul to Milena and how she, in turn, kept her heart and mind open enough to see what he was laying down for her. There were a bunch of swoon worthy moments as well as smexy ones and in the end I couldn’t have been happier for them.
It appears, at least in the last two reads I’ve done by Ms. Stoker, that her baddies have absolutely fascinated me. They are all kinds of wrong and psychotic, but fascinating and Jeremiah and Jonathan are all kinds of cray cray. The way they view themselves and their place in the world is intriguing and frightening, but they definitely helped to keep me turning the pages.
As I said in the beginning, a lot happens in this book. Lots of characters from this series and the others that have crossed paths, I swear I need to have a family tree in front of me just to keep everyone straight, and two future storylines getting a jump start in the epilogue. It was a lot to take in at times, but it was a fun ride and I’m totally looking forward to what’s coming up next!
