Sweet romance story about Brent and Avery who had a thing for each other as teens but never acted on it. Now years later she's dealing with a nasty break up and a man who is abusive and wont leave her alone. Brent will do everything he can to protect her.

Sweet story and I enjoyed it. I did find the flashbacks and inner dialog used a little too much. Once the flashbacks are over its hard to get back into it. I like having a backstory of what happened but it interfered/interrupted with the flow o

This is the first time I've read this author and I really liked this story. Lots of action and a great story line. I thought Brenton was a really fantastic Hero. And I adored Avery. She was smart and sweet. Yeah, she made some mistakes but nothing that hasn't been done before. And she wasn't afraid to admit those mistakes, learn from them and move on.

My biggest complaint, and the one thing I really didn't like, was that there were some things left unresolved with the ex. Had that part of the st

Her Savior is an emotional rollercoaster of adrenaline fueled events. Avery has had a rough life being raised by her alcoholic father after her mom died. Actually it was more like her raising him if it hadn't been for a great best friend there would have been no normalcy at all. Avery get involved with an abusive man and he keeps being abusive even after she breaks it off. She has secretly been in love with Brent since high school but they have never told each other how they felt. Schuler's char ...more

WOW life can suck big time when everything in your life is bad from father to boyfriend. Been there done that which made this story very easy to relate to. I can’t think of much of anything worse than finding the man you could live a lifetime with only to have to keep him at a distance because of all the crazy people in your life who won’t let go. I doubt you could read this and not have it touch you in some way. Avery is trying so hard to move on rebuilding her life from alcoholic father and an ...more

Brenton and Avery have had feelings for each other since their teenage years. But they've never acted on the feelings and as they got older, with Brenton going into the Marines they never had their opportunity.

Avery isn't having the best of luck in life right now. Her father is an alcoholic, and because of his episodes she's missing more and more of her general studies classes. She has an ex that is convinced they aren't over and is beating her physically and spiritually down.

I love reading military romances. In Her Savior Avery and Brent were perfect together. Brent and Avery's love for each other ran deep. Brent returns home from being on tour. Once home he learn's that Avery's ex Melvin was extremely abusive to her. Brent steps in to be her protector and keep her safe from her demanding ex. Melvin won't take no for an answer and has created lots of trust issues for Avery. Will Brent succeed at breaking down the walls that Avery has built up? Will Brent also be abl ...more

Overall rating: 4 (KU copy)

The personalities of these characters are what stood out the most for me. Randilyn would be perfect for her own center stage. I felt a bit of a disconnect with no one recognizing the signs of trauma syndrome. Physically violent abuse is a very hard topic and usually goes hand in hand with emotional abuse resulting in both inner and outer destruction . This author portrayed the victims trauma with skill enveloping a reader in its ugliness. The savior in this storyline p

I love Avery and Brent, they were made for each other. Avery is guarded because of her past and then she meets Brent while she is starting over. She keeps him at a distance at first, but they're destined for each other. Brent makes it clear to her that he's hers and he'll do anything for her and protect her no matter the cost.

Then the past comes back to haunt Avery, but Brent has her back!!!

Great Read!!!

What an amazing story. I definitely connected with this story as I was in an abusive relationship myself. Not to the extent she was. But, Avery is such a strong and amazing woman. And Brent and his family are so very awesome. I was sucked into this book from beginning to end! I definitely want to see what's next!

Great story with lots of action and passion. Brutal at times and might be a trigger for some, but done well and not sensationalized. Tight, well-written story with characters to care for. An easy read for a lazy afternoon.

What a great story. I read it the first time when it was supposed to be a short story as part of an anthology. It was a terrific story, with all the elements needed to keep me interested.

I'm now reading it for the second time because the author decided to release it as a full on novella and the new content that has been added is amazing. It all fills out the story perfectly and makes the characters more dynamic.

Avery and Brent are an amazing pair and their story is awesome. Plus, the payback t

I really enjoyed this book. It was different from the first book in the series but not in a bad way. I enjoyed the way Barb wrote the characters, you got to see who Brent and Avery were without losing too much of the story since it's a novella. There were a few twists that I really enjoyed that made the story more intriguing. A quick, sweet military romance who has you swooning.

Her stories are a mix of real life events, personal experiences and the craziness of her own imagination, and the imaginations of
