It’s been years since Milena Reinhardt has seen TJ “Rock” Rockwell. The last time, he was nearly a shell of a man…but he was her man…and he tore her heart out of her chest. Circumstances unbeknownst to TJ have ensured Milena’s never fully recovered.

TJ left his sniper days behind—for the most part—when he left the Army and become a respected Texas Highway Patrolman. He al

JUSTICE FOR MILENA by Susan Stoker. Wow! Ms. Stoker blew me away with this one! I simply adored all the characters and the storyline grabbed on and wouldn't let go. Milena and TJ are perfect together. TJ is a super sexy man of the law but beyond that, he's tender and kind and loving - just made me swoon. Milena is my type of heroine - she's strong yet knows when she needs to lean on others. And JT - stole my heart! Ms. Stoker fills the tale with action, suspense, a bit of mystery and some really ...more
***5 Stars***

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 who everyone is and where they belong (series wise) this one definitely made my head spin a bit, but

Book 10 in the amazing badge of honour series by Susan Stoker. We always get a little teaser in the back of the book before for the up coming book and I always get excited as the release date gets nearer and nearer especially when it's a characters book that I have been waiting for. It was great to finally read all about TJ Rockwell. He has been injured and the rest of his team is dead after an ambush whilst on a mission. So home at hospital recovery from his injuries her meets Melina and love s ...more

Susan Stoker has another book out in her Badge of Honor series, and this time one of her characters, Sadie, who is friends with Milena, is lovingly borrowed from Lexi Blake’s Masters and Mercenaries series. Sadie’s crossover book will be out in April, and I’m very excited.
Milena is a nurse, and her and TJ have a relationship 3 years prior when TJ is in a VA rehab hospital that she works in. TJ has been hurt after his whole unit is killed, and he ends up leaving Milena after they are together for

Honestly I did not think Susan Stoker's books could get any better, but she sure proved me so very wrong. And hopefully others will love this book as much as I did.

Milena Reinhart had not seen TJ "Rock Rockwell in years, he hurt her deeply and she had not fully recovered as of yet.
TJ left the service behind and now is a respected Texas Highway Patrolman, but he never ever forgot the girl he loved and being a man gave her up thinking he was not good enough for her.

I rave about Susan Stoker on this blog! Seriously, I even convinced my mom to read her books. I love that she publishes so frequently because I always have something great to read! Justice for Milena is part of the Badge of Honor series but is a stand alone. The plot does set up the plot for 2 upcoming books as well!

Milena and TJ were in love until he left her without a word. Typical guy-he thought he was too broken for her. Fast forward 3 years and TJ, the highway patrolman, crosses paths

With how this book opened up I didn't care for TJ very much. I'm not a big fan of I'm not good enough for you, so I'll leave and then to not even bother to leave a note, give me a break, you need to man up.

TJ did redeem himself later and in a huge way. He let Milena know that she was one of the most important people in his life by words and actions. I liked the talk that TJ had with both of Milena's parents and the lengths he went to protect her. I also loved that TJ didn't think a relationship

A awesome read

Tj a man who was angry and full.of pain. He loved her but he wasnt good enough for her.
Milens a kind women who just had her hesrt ripped out, the pain and what she had to face was to much. Susan stoke brings you real issues that you may not think could hsppen but they do. Her characters pullbyou in and each page is full of emotions . Spectacular, well written , and full of suspense is ehat you will get with each and every book.

Glad we finally got JT's book!

JT has been a fixture in multiple series she's written and I am glad he finally got his happily ever after.

Milena and TJ were wonderful additions to the Texas Heroes family and this has me pumped for Sadie's story (and crossover with out Delta boys).

I am running out of Susan Stoker books to read!

Once again Susan Stoker has incorporated a difficult subject into a spellbinding book.

TJ left Milena so he wouldn't bring her down. He needed to figure out his life and getting angry at her for his problems would do just that. He totally went about leaving the wrong way, but he left.

Milena was heartbroken when he left without an explanation, just disappeared in the night.

Milena has moved back home and one of her jobs was caring for unwed pregnant girls at Bexar County School and Orphanage for Gi

Another great story-I love a second chance romance, especially when the man discovers he’s a daddy. The little boy made the story, so cute to watch TJ take care of JT, and who doesn’t love a alpha male determined to protect his family from danger.

I was given this book in turn for an honest review.

When Milena and TJ cross paths after years apart, TJ ceases the chance to make amends for the one decision that ripped their lives apart. Can Milena learn to trust TJ again? Or will she allow doubt to shadow her decisions putting her life at risk?

Susan Stoker headed to the darker side in this latest addition to the Texas Heroes series. However, she has gone dark in a subtle and intriguing manner. Susan descri

Finally we get the story of TJ. We of course have met him through other books and know he is a current patrolman and retired sniper. Through the story of he and Milena though, we discover the many he was, the man he is underneath it all, and the man you can see he will be.

Milena and TJ have such an intense history that you feel it all in your own heart. Milena has been hurt by TJ and as much as she wants desperately to trust he is a changed man she knows sh

It was a nice plot but the story was spoiled because of the leads for the next books in the series. It felt like this book is written just for the sake of promotion of the upcoming books. It would have been better if there was more focus on the lead characters.

ABOUT THE BOOK: Release Date March 13, 2018

It had been years since Milena Reinhart had seen TJ “Rock” Rockwell. He’d torn her heart out of her chest and she still hadn’t completely recovered.

TJ left his sniper days behind him for good when he’d left the Army and become a respected Texas Highway Patrolman. But he never forgot the girl he’d loved and stupidly given up.

Neither thought they’d ever see each other again. But when a pedophile’s operation is taken down and he sets his sig

This is the perfect hero story that I love reading from Susan Stoker!

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, n

I've often lamented that second chance romances are the bane of my existence, I can't resist them, and yet I loath most of them, mostly because they are so very seldom done realistically.
I've gone on and on about Trust being hard to rebuild, in a lot of my reviews, mostly because it's awfully tempting for writers to rush that bit, sudden epiphanies and baam all is forgiven and trust is back completely, or sudden life altering/threatening things happen and we get the tired old "Life is too short

When trust is broken… trust is also the very thing needed to save the ones you love...

Not only do we deal with a past love that has returned and the consequences of dealing with volatile emotions, pain and healing… there is an underlying evil that is threatening to tear them apart.

A beautiful, angst filled, emotional journey for two people finding not only themselves but rediscovering the courage to claim their second chance. Thank heavens, there are special people in our lives, that are always

Make sure to read the Author’s Note because you may decide to add something to your TBR list.

TJ “Rock” Rockwell shows the frustration that some of our returning soldiers may feel. His nickname is perfect and I think as you read this story you may feel the same. Melina Reinhardt shows you don’t always know everything about who you work for. This is what adds the suspense to the story.

I’m giving you fair warning – you will need to keep a tissue, or maybe a box, handy. There’s one

JUSTICE FOR MILENA is book 10 in the Badge of Honor: Texas Heroes series and is a romantic suspense. It's a standalone so no worries if you haven't read a previous book. In fact, this was my first book by author Susan Stoker and I had no problems jumping right in!

Before I say anything else, I just want to give kudos to Ms. Stoker! This book takes place in my hometown and I loved how accurate she was! TJ is an ex-sniper and a Texas Highway Patrolman. His biggest regret was leaving Milena three ye

I loved this book and I think the whole Badge of Honor series that Ms. Stoker writes gave this book life . How she presented a very touchy subject was superbly written and researched. Yes, it deals with child sexual abuse, teen pregnancy, the two men Jonathon and Jeremiah who have mental illness with what they considered their girls school should be. (Because those two were more than a few bricks short of a full load).

Oh my gracious, this book was so good!!

Justice for Milena brings us TJ's story, whom we've met in several of Stoker's stories. Milena loved TJ before he became the badass Texas Highway Trooper from the books. She loved him when he was broken and desperately trying to find himself. She loved the man he was and his potential. But he broke her heart when he left without a word. She's struggled to move on and live without him when everything reminds her off him but like the survivor she is, she's c

Justice for Milena is the tenth title in the Badge of Honor: Texas Heroes series. Anyone familiar with this series, will be familiar with TJ ‘Rock’ Rockwell, a former army sniper, turned highway patrolman.

TJ is desperate to redeem himself for choices of his past, and when the opportunity arises to protect the woman he loves, but left behind, he’s not going to hesitate. He’s incredibly honest, open and repentant for his actions in the past, and he’s bound and determined to protect thos

Whilst recovering TJ met the love of his life but being the stubborn man he is he walked away and left her behind. 3 years later when TJ is doing some recon on a school he sees the one that got away and

This ARC copy was received from the publisher/author via RockStar PR for an honest review. What follows is indeed my honest review of Justice for Milena.

I think this is one of the best romantic suspense series I have read in awhile. Stoker builds the anticipation up and adds twists and turns just for fun. The setting up of the crossover story line between Lexi Blake and Susan Stoker was outstanding.

But back to this book. Without giving away all of the good details, know you're in for a surprise
