This is a very moving story of two people who met and connected as children in the foster care system then were torn apart by that system. Years later, they are now adults and their lives have followed very different routes. He’s been in the army and is now a police officer whilst she’s desperately trying to make a good life for herself but keeps being knocked down again. From the very start this is a dramatic story with Marina Rossi forever seeming to be in trouble and Jasen Dexter (Jase/Dex) k ...more

Finding Heart by Tiffani Lynn is a emotional tale of lost love and opening up to include others in your life. This is the second installment in Tiffani's Colorado Veterans series and can be read as a standalone but why? Read Finding Purpose because it was perfect in a breathtakingly emotional way and you'll get a introduction to Dex who is our Hero in this story.

Jasen “Dex” Dexter & Marina Rossi met in foster care system. Dex wanted to protect Marina but also was drawn to her. Years later, after

I voluntarily read and reviewed an ARC of this book provided by Indie Saga and the author. I'm so glad for finding this gem!

★ 4.5 heartbreaking stars ★

Two broken hearts. Two fractured souls. A chance encounter. Can they find a way back to each other?

There are no words to describe the whirlwind romance that is Marina and Dex a.k.a "Jase". I loved every single second of their love story and probably wept too much at their history and the things that they went through.

Marina is a role model to lo

Finding Heart (Colorado Veteran Book 2) by Tiffani Lynn
• Locket
What a tear jerking prologue, but DEF a way to get you to dive right in! OH BOY!!! I'm gonna tell you now that you're gonna need a WHOLE BOX of tissues while you read this story, but man is it worth it! There will be lots of tears through hurt, pain, and most of all love. I wondered if Dex(aka Jase) and Marina(aka Mari) would ever find their true happiness or would forever be in pain alone. You'll have to read Finding Heart
When two former foster care kids unexpectedly find one another again fireworks, heartbreak, and danger are the result in this engaging romance. Bruised hearts and fears of loneliness abound as these two very different people find an unlikely connection that takes readers on a roller coaster ride of emotions that kept me fully immersed in this tale from start to finish. By the turn of the final page I'm wore out by all the conflict that came before but immensely satisfied by their hard-fought con ...more

If it weren't for bad luck Mari would have no luck at all, but then......
This is a wonderfully written book with an addicting storyline that is filled with love, passion, suspense, pain, sorrow, suspense, loss and guilt. It is one that will attach itself to you and grip your heart as your feelings go in every direction with each turn of the page.

The characters are very well written and complex, especially the two lead characters Mari and Jase. Mari and Jase met as teenagers in a foster home, whe

Gosh these two had a rough life start, Marina's doesn't appear to have ever stood a chance of improving, while Dex went into the military which has given him a much better life, even if slightly damaged from events that happened while serving. He has been to hell in how he feels about the loss of his friend/brother, having promised to look after his family that on top has messed with his head to some degree. He is closed off to relationships but at the same time still remembers the girl he fell ...more

Finding Heart is the second book in the Colorado Veterans series, and I absolutely LOVED it, and am already addicted to this series in a big way. But I have to be honest, I never read the blurb before reading, just saw the word Colorado on it, and I knew that I needed to read it. I read so much that sometimes books blur together, but when it has this magic word, (since I grew up there) it stood out. And if that wasn't awesome enough, the book itself was AMAZING, and I couldn't get enough after I ...more

Oh my word this is even better than the first book was. If you're anything like me you will need one huge box of tissues to read this. I cried so many times I thought I would run out of tears.

Marina and Jasen knew (and secretly) cared for each other as youngsters in care, so this is a little bit of a second chance romance. I thought Jasen would be the broken and damaged character but boy it was Marina who broke my heart and had me blubbering repeatedly with how scarred she was inside.

Finding Heart was a heartwarming and emotional book. It was gripping from the moment I started it. It is the second book of the Colorado Veteran series I have read of Tiffani Lynns. The book had my attention right away from the moment I opened it. The storyline was amazing and the chemistry was beyond hot. The love that Jasen Dexter and Marina Rossi have for each other is mind blowing. The way they start out in life to coming together at the end is just perfectly written.

Tiffani Lynn has given us a beautifully written emotional read that will keep you reading until the end. Mari and Jase were in foster care together, but were separated when he was moved. Ten years later, they are reunited when Dex finds her in a compromising position with his current partner, since Quinn is on vacation. Marina keeps getting in bad situations and Dex bails her out. Mari has always had feelings for Jase, but he is a changed man since his ambush in the Army, which killed his best f ...more

Finding Heart, is the second title in the Colorado Veterans series, but can be read as a standalone, which is the second chance romance of Dex and Mari's who are two broken individuals.

Marina is an endearing and complex character, a survivor who had a life full of bad luck. She has a tendency of being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Dex is an incredibly complex character. Although he has a tendency to act at times without thinking through the repercussions in regards to others fee

This is a new author to me and wow I am blown away. First off this book is really well written and my warning to all of you is to go to Costco and get the big package of tissues because you are going to need it through this emotional, heartbreaking but full of so much love read!!

These characters are well developed and left me engaged from beginning to end. I could not put this one down. Even though I was balling my eyes out I had to keep turning each page to the very end.

3.75 Rating. The title fits this book perfectly as this story has a lot of heart. Marina has a big heart and such loyalty to her friends even though that often finds herself in the middle of trouble.
The story has the over-used storyline of an ex-military hero, that can’t get past the fact he is alive and his friend and fellow soldier isn’t. His former army experience isn’t the only one factor that impacts Jase/Dex, as years in Foster Care has also left Jase a broken man. It takes a tattooed, st

What an emotional journey for both Dex and Marina as they knew each other as teens when both were in the same foster home. But while Jase "Dex" joins the military, Marina tries hard to keep a job and roof over her head. But when she's arrested after her friend OD's on drugs they meet again as Mari uses her one phone call to Dex who is a cop. What follows is a roller coaster ride of are they or aren't they?

This book grabbed ahold of me from the start and held me captive until the last page.
My heart ached for the life Marina and Jasen were forced into as kids. Growing up in foster care, these two met as teenagers, and had an instant bond with one another.
Jase had my heart from the very beginning with his need to protect Mari. Separated in the system, they thought they would never see each other again. When they meet again 10 years later, Jase's need to protect Mari is just as strong as it was whe

"If it wasn't for bad luck, I'd have no luck at all." This song lyrics perfectly describes Marina who is found in a compromising position by childhood friend, Jasen. Emotions run high in this story line and the words of wisdom come from a homeless guy. This can be read as a standalone, but I loved how Author Lynn incorporated and continued the relationships from Finding Purpose. And as much as I loved Finding Purpose, Finding Heart gripped me from the first page and held my heart and breath to t ...more

Marina and Dex were in foster care together. Dex was her protector and first love when he had to leave their foster home or was years before they meet again and they meet in some pretty bad circumstances Mari can’t seem to keep herself out of trouble.

Dex also has some issues after losing his best friend. He doesn’t let anyone get to close and he tries to avoid Mari. Poor Dex is so confused and he is sort of off and on with Mari. Mari only wants love and a family something she never had

“Why do I fight so hard to keep going when it always turns out bad?”

Tiffani Lynn’s “Finding Heart” is a second chance at love romance, as well as a friends to lovers story. Jase and Marina are as different as two lovers can be, but they are true soulmates. They are jagged and scared people that fit together like long lost puzzle pieces. This story will keep the reader cheering for their much needed HEA.

This is the 4th book by Tiffani Lynn that I've read. I loved this book even more than I loved the first Colorado Veterans book (Finding Purpose). This book will keep you on the edge of your seat, it will have crying and smiling and it will touch your heart. It has unexpected twists and turns that you won't see coming. I loved that this book was not predictable, that you couldn't tell what was going to happen next. This book can be read as a stand alone or as part of the series. I highly recommen ...more

There is so much heart in this story. The pain and the joy this book makes it a great read. Tiffani captures the heartbreak that life can give, but has a sweet way to bring hope and joy to counter those loses. This will be a series I keep coming back to. Mari and Jase are the complete opposite but boy do the attract. The people around them shoe them love but they never truly felt it untill Jase runs back in Mari. So glad I read

Tiffani Lynn has done it again with another fabulous book. It took me on a emotional rollercoaster all the way to the end. Mari and Jase used to be in foster care together but were separated and 10 years later find themselves reunited and Dex ( a cop) finds Mari in a series of wrong place, wrong time scenarios. Absolutely loved it and recommend it highly. Great read

Finding Heart is such a heartbreaking story. Marina and Dex meet up again after years of losing touch with each other. Both are foster care kids, while Dex has made good with his life, bad luck has followed Marina. This is a friends to lovers story, a standalone book in this series.

An ARC was received for an honest opinion.

What a great read. I fell in love with Dex and Marina. Could not put it down. I was rooting for Marina and was glad Dex got his head out of his ass. Can't wait for the next instalment of Cirado Veterans.

This is the first book that I have read by this author and it didn’t disappoint. Jasen has a military past that has closed him off. When he finds his childhood friend Marina can she be the key that opens his heart. Or will her past push them apart? The heat level was off the charts with these two.
