A sweet second chance love story that tugged at my heart!

Skye thought she had found her forever, yet she made a decision that would prevent her from knowing if that was the case. As she moved on with her life, she thought she would never get that opportunity again. Until she meets Oliver, and believes that, this time, she has found her forever…

But before she knows it she’s alone again, and broken hearted. As she moves on with her life a second time, she realizes that maybe, just maybe, she was

Rediscovering peace tells about a second chance at love or more like finding your second chance with your first love.

Honestly, I didn't expect the story to go the way it did. My mind have given me this totally different picture based on the title and cover of the book which is totally my fault because I don't really read book blurbs/description. But even though it's totally different to how I imagined it to be, I meant it a good way. It's nice to be surprised.

Storywise, I don't really have anyth

For a first novel, Ms. Rogers presents us with an amazing story that feels like a true story. We meet two beautiful, broken people. Skye has a broken heart so devastating she swears to never love again. The infidelity of her fiancé plunges her into a cesspool of rejection, betrayal and feelings of not being "good enough". Braden is also broken, reeling from the horrors of war. He too has a broken heart because Skye abandoned him eight years pr

Rediscovering Peace is a great story.

Skye is a strong and independent girl. Her dad is in the military so as a kids she traveled a lot. She has two great best friends and roommates, Caige and Faith. They are great friends and I loved the interactions between them. She wears her heart on her shelve. She falls fast and hard for Oliver. Oliver is in the Army. Even though things are moving fast between them both Skye and Oliver seem to be on the same page but then something happens that sends Skye

I really liked the sound of this story. It had a good plot and I was eager to read it. However, it didn't quite live up to my expectations. The actual storyline was good and there were a great mix of characters so in that respect I wasn't disappointed. What I was disappointed in was the writing style. It didn't work for me, I found the wording to be too exact and precise, for example, there were a lot of "I am", "I will", "you are" in a speaking context when most people don't actually talk like ...more

4 out of 5 stars

The story started slow, but quickly I was engaged and couldn’t wait to keep going.

Skye and Brendan were each other’s first loves 10 years ago in Germany where both their fathers were stationed in the army. Skye broke up with Brendan when her father was transferred to another base. She thought she’d lost her love forever.

Eventually, Skye falls in love with a soldier, Oliver, and even though she was forced to follow her father all over the world, she still wants to try this relati

I was given a copy for an honest review.

I have just finished and I am a little shocked this is Steffy's first book. The storyline and plot completely sucked me in from the beginning!! Honestly I was picturing a different story in my head from the blurb, and I was thrown for some loops and turns!!

I enjoyed all the characters, and I dont want to give anything away, but I was praying at about 50% in that it would have the ending I was hoping for. Steffy did an amazing job of keeping me on my toes

This is Steffy Rogers first book and I must say she did a great job. It is the story of Skye and Braden. Skye was used to military life in a way as she grew up as an Army Brat. They meet and the sparks are there right away. But as in the military life Skye has to move away and they do not see each over for quite a few years. When they saw one another again Skye was with another. Twist and turns and sadness, pain and love.
Full of emotions the book you get sucked in right away or at least I did.

A story about second chance love.
The story seemed rushed and very little transition.
It was a good read but could have been less rushed.

2 1/2 Platypires for Rediscovering Peace By Steffy Rogers

I received a free copy of this book for an honest review.

I am split down the middle on how I feel about this book. The book started off fine and I thought I was in for a really good ride. I am a sucker for a good romance story. I thought the story was different in the case that it started with a different love story in order to to set up the main one. While I can understand why that might not be the norm, I just liked the fact that it s

What an amazing book by Steffy. I literally could not put this book down and read it within a few hours. I laughed, cried, swooned, and everything in-between. I loved how we get stories of both Skye and Braden but we also get Faith, Seth, and Craig along with several others.
I loved Skye right from the get go. She was hard on herself when it came to love but Skye believed she had found her one true love when it came to Oliver. Just when Skye thought she would get her happily ever after fate step

I was given an ARC book for an honest review free of persuasion from the author or anyone else affiliated with this book.

Author Steffy Rogers took something that most people in their dont have to deal with and put it in a book. Not only did she put it in a book with soldiers, she made sure to let everyone know that regular people can suffer from it too. What I am referring to is PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder). This is often associated with soldiers because of what they see in a

Well where to begin with this one... I had the privilege of receiving an ARC for an honest review....
For a debut novel this book has nailed it. The book flows seamlessly, descriptions are spot on. The plot line is unique and feels beyond genuine. The whole premise of this book is beyond believable and feels like real life which is beyond amazing and rare. Yes, I know its fiction but some times you need that book that will hit it right off the get go and give you that feeling like this could real

It's hard to believe that this is Steffys first book.

I don't like to write reviews about what actually happens in the books I read as I feel writing whether it has a happy ending or not often spoils it...... You will just have to read it to find out!!

I personally love reading books that consist of differing POVs from the characters and this book certainly delivers. There isn't a cliffhanger at the end of this book but Steffy has made sure you want to continue reading her future books by keepin

Skye and Braden what an amazing story. Steffy did a great job telling the story of Skye Donovan and Braden Parker. At one time the two were a pair but due to transfer of Skye's father she left him. Eight years go by life moves on. Steffy did a wonderful job having this love story with the twist and turns and making people hopeful. She told a story of two people male and female dealing with PTSD for two different event in their life. Braden PTSD was from the war. Skye's PTSD a victim of assult. W ...more

Steffy's writing was absolutely impeccable! I will admit that the beginning was a tad bit rough but it did not take long until I was absolutely captivated and dependent on her words. The story of Skye and Braden pulled on my heartstrings. I felt every emotion that ran through these characters heads. PTSD is a real issue and I am extremely pleased with how she covers the topic or that she even covered it at all. Many authors are too afraid to touch topics like this. I promise you will enjoy this ...more

Wow!! You would never know this was Steffy's first book. Every emotion you can get from one book, you'll get with this one. The story of Skye and Braden is very emotional journey. I laughed, I cried, and I wanted more, I wasn't ready to let go of them!!! The realness of the story sucks you in from page one. Skye is the type of girl I'd be friends with, and Braden.... well, he's swoon worthy! He's ranked his way up to one of

What an amazing story about taking a chance on love! Skye is used to the military. Having moved her whole life from one station to another, it's no surprise that she falls for Oliver, a local officer. However, it is a surprise that Oliver isn't who she thought she knew and nothing compared to her first love Braden. This is a story of second chances, fate, and overcoming your fears. I truly enjoyed every moment of Skye and Braden's story and can't wait for the continuation of Steffy Roger's milit ...more

Rediscovering each other and peace

When two hearts are broken it takes a lot to mend them and each other. Skye and Braden grew up together while their parents were stationed in Germany. When Skye's dad is transferred to Hawaii, she leaves Braden behind. It takes several years and each of them having other people before they find each other again. Each suffer from PTSD and are able to heal each other and find peace within their hearts and souls.

Where to start. I love Steffy she is an amazing woman and an even better friend! Knowing that this is her first book is the only reason I can say yes it's a first book but you wouldn't know it from reading it! Steffy wrote an amazing story that will grip you and keep you running the gambit of emotions. I laughed cried and got angry. Being a military wife I completely understand that aspect of this book! Great job!

I loved this book the moment I got the first chapter. It was an emotional roller-coaster, which I love. I love it when an author came make me feel what the characters are feeling and she does just that.
I am anxiously waiting for what Steffy does with the next book and which couple will be in it.

This is a must read. You will not be sorry!

This is a wonderful story of life and love. We have many charachters involved, but the core are two military brats. These folks have suffered and endured. They bonded early, then life separated them for awhile. A heart wearming story that I enjoyed!

Great first Book. Look forward to the 2nd installment. ...I'm not a writer I'm a reader so I don't usually write reviews. Enjoyed the dynamics between all the characters especially Skye and Braden. The build up of the characters in book 2 has me impatiently waiting.
