Wonderful and touching story with a nice ending. Looking forward to the next book.

Stronger with Her is the second in the Strength series (Stronger With Him is Book #1), but this book can be read as a standalone. Steph is a computer genius hired to beef up computer security at Owens Ammunition, owned by James and three of his brothers. Sparks fly between Steph and James, but what the two don't realize is they've already met, thanks to his brothers who all but dragged him to a strip club where Steph moonlights as an exotic dancer.

Stronger With Her is the second book in JA Hensley's Strength Series. It tells the story of Stephanie and James (who affectionately goes by Runt) both of whom have dealt with major trauma in their lives. Truly, that prologue gutted me. While both Runt and Stephanie have strong support systems and seemingly wonderful lives, full of love and two successful careers, they're both missing something from their lives that all relates to the crap they've dealt with (or rather, haven't dealt with) in bot ...more

I really loved this book! JA Hensley does such an amazing job of connecting you to all the characters and has created a storyline the pulls you into the character’s world. While I was reading Stephanie and James’ story, I felt like I was right there with them for their journey. It was a bumpy road for both of them, but I was so pleased I was able to walk it with them.

What I really enjoyed about this story, was that though there was plenty of sexy time (don’t get me wrong, I do love me

I enjoyed this book quite a lot. It took me only two days to read it so that shows that I couldn't put it down.

Stephanie is a strong young woman and she wants to bi noticed. What is the better way then dance in front of the others. She enjoys it and is happy with that. I liked her strong and independent character but sometimes shy and insecure. I can compare myself with her.

Great story of 2 people trying to manage life after going thru traumatic life altering events. Both throw themselves into being successful but when they meet they can’t stop thinking about each other. This was a book that you won’t be able to put down. Hoping J.A writes about all of the brothers in the storyline!

"Why have I never seen her before and why can't I take my eyes off her? I feel like I'm under some sort of spell, drawn in by a force I can't explain but not wanting to fight it at all. It's not lust; it's something else."


They each had their own story to tell. Inside those stories were tragedies and regret. I was pulled in from the beginning and couldn't stop reading!

Stronger With Her just got better and better the longer I read it! It sucked me in and was so hard to put down. It was a fantastic read and I can't wait to read the first book or any other books that Ms. Hensley will hopefully write in her Stronger series!

I loved Stephanie's personality! She's a sweet girl, but she's also sassy, she's strong but she has her weak moments, and she really doesn't let people walk all over her, especially James. I really loved Stephanie, but I will admit that I got

OMG J.A. Hensley, I LOVED this story, and I have a bit of a girl crush on you as well, but I'll get to the why soon enough!

Stephanie has grown up as a child prodigy with a troubled family. She's always felt invisible and her job as a computer tech just reinforces that in her mind. In order to be noticed, she works part time as a dancer, but no one knows about it. James has had a tough time from a tragic loss, and now only focuses on work. He's built up his own company where a couple of his brot

Stephanie has had her own fair of troubles and has always felt invisible by everyone around her. Her sister started hearing voices in her head when Stephanie was fifteen years old, three years she would later witness her sister committing suicide.
James also known as "Runt" by his older brothers is an absolute giant compared to them. He is the owner of his own company which is run with some of his older brothers. He is a gentleman in all fairness, he lives with his kind mother, looking after her

Stronger with Her began with an intense and emotional prologue. One that still makes my scalp tingle. One that I had to share with my little brother so he understood the gravity of the latest book I was reading. He isn't a regular reader, I think the last book he read was after he watched the movie first.

Shh. I am working on converting him and he hasn't realized it yet.

His reaction to the Prologue (he made the 'holy $h!t' face), lead him to take over my kindle while I was adding my review to the

JA Hensley is a new author to me and I enjoyed this book.
The prologue left me needing more of this book, I needed to know what was going on.
Once I started the book, I couldn't stop.
You have two people who have pasts that they can't seem to move on from and not sure how to do that.

This is book 2 in the Strength Series by JA Hensley. The book had a strong prologue though it was a bit slow in the beginning.
Stephanie and James are both character one can relate to, they are every day people. the experiences in their pasts have caused them each pain. They don't deal with it and have a chemistry that is undeniable.
Stephanie finds herself dancing in front of many she is shy and sometimes even insecure. Then she is painted as being strong and independent a quality many can relate

Stronger with Her is my first J.A. Hensley book and was not disappointed. This is the second book in the Strength Series but I did not need to go back and read Stronger with Him. Stronger with Her worked as a standalone for me.

Loved this emotional and passionate read, both Stephanie and James were great characters and quickly I became invested in their happiness being secured through each other.

James and his brothers at the Ammunition company were a solid unit and their strength and support in each other was a great aspect to this story as was Stephanie and her inner girl posse. James's assistant was a particular favourite for me, she was his Miss Money Penny.

The background stories for both James and Stephanie were di

I thoroughly enjoyed Stronger With Her! Stephanie and James have each faced pain and devastation in their past. These were two very broken people who were just barely existing, going through the motions. James was busy running his company, while Stephanie was just starting her own. It was obvious from the beginning that these two were meant for each other.
I adored James. His drive, his determination, and his super-man abilities in bed makes him the ultimate romance hero. JA Hensley has written

This is the second book in the series for Author J A Hensley but can you read as a stand alone, which I did.

It is the story of two broken Souls, Stephanie and James. Stephanie lived in the shadow of her sister until she committed suicide and then still felt as though she wasn't seen as her parents dealt with the loss of her older sister. She is a genius and opens up her own business as a computer analyst and that is where she meets James, although they hav

This is the second in the series, but can absolutely be read as a standalone. I jumped out of order and I was not lost in any way.

I loved James and Stephanie. They have both had tragic events happen in their lives. They may not want them to or try to hide them, but they define them. Decisions are made and walls are built up to protect their hearts.

Well....the heart wants what it wants and James is ready. Ready to move on and become stronger. Will he be stronger with her?

This is the first book that I read written by JA Hensley and I was instantly drawn from just the prologue alone. I really enjoyed this book even though at times I felt like I was missing a little more.

Both Stephanie and James (Runt) have both survived some tragedies and I was eager to continue reading to the end to see if they were able to overcome them. I loved both of their characters which were very likable and their insecurities were relatable. I enjoyed the secondary characters and hopeful

Stronger With Her is a story about two people that have pasts but end up finding each other. Stephanie and James can’t deny the attraction between them. It had been a long time for both of them and this felt right. The issues of their pasts come up and their new found relationship is tested. Are they doomed even before they began?

This book was a story of 2 people trying to deal with life after suffering through traumatic experiences. Both James and Stephanie have had a lot of pain in their lives before they meet each other. I liked their chemistry more towards the end of the book than the beginning. The story starts our kind of slow but by the middle I couldn't put it down. I love not just James and Steph, but the minor characters also. This book was moving and made me laugh. I would definitely read more by this author. ...more

This is the second book in this series but can be read as a standalone.
This is Stephanie and James' story. Steph is a computer genius/wiz/nerd who is hired to sort out James' security at Owens Ammunition which he and his 3 brothers own. Both characters have dealt with trauma in their life and so it does make for a real emotional read in places. The chemistry and fire between these two was off the charts and I loved reading their story.

J.A. Hensley's "Stronger With Her" is the second book in the Strength series, but it can be read as a standalone. I love the characters! Steph is my geeky gal and James is mmm-mmm-good! Every time I see a Nissan Altima, I imagine a guy that almost too big to fit inside it! Tasty! Great storyline and yummy sex scenes. Wonder if Hensley is going to write more on these characters...I'd love to see a #3 for this series! ...more
