Heartbreakingly beautiful and devastatingly annoying, Timaeus Lambros, a deaf, former military translator, has just been assigned as my co-teacher for the rest of the school year.
His stupid-hot face gets on my nerves.
So does his well-fitting jeans.
Charming and gorgeous men like him should not be teachers. They should be locked away in a storage closet... with me.

We all have our unicorn authors. They write books we automatically one-click without even reading the blurb. We fall in love with their heroes and heroines every single book without fail. They make us feel all the feelings and carve out a permanent place in our heart. Kristy Marie is one of those authors for me, and Interpreter is a perfect example of why.

After reading every one of Kristy Marie's books, after falling in love with each of her heroes, I was curious as to how Tim would win my heart. I swooned over his silence, I craved his music, and I thirsted after his heart. Tim caused me to cry five tears and therefore his story gets all the stars!!

I love this crew! Like love them. One of the best cast of characters in a series! Tim was so heartbreakingly swoony. Milah was hilarious. Oliver! I can’t resist a kid. Pure romantic goodness to my soul.

I won't lie!!! This was my first book by Kristy Marie, but even me, i can see why Tim's story was so anticipated from the writer's fans!!!!
This story was unique, full of passion and so sweet!!!!
It was emotionally overloaded and i enjoyed it very much!!!!
Now, I'm literally kickin' my ass for not reading her stories earlier, but i will get there!!!!

My heart was left on the pages of Interpreter. Kristy Marie took me on a wild ride with extraordinary characters that I never want to get off of. With every book Kristy tops herself. You can never have just one favorite.


It took me a while to finally write my review because I couldn't find the words to express how I feel and how good of a book this was. My words still won't do this book justice.

It's been way too long since Kristy released a book. I mean it. I can't stand all this waiting. It's too hard 😭😭😭😭 but it is worth the wait. Every damn second. Cause diving into this stroy, into these characters, it's like coming home.

Interpreter was an anticipated read for me, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on Tim and Milah’s story.

I loved that we got to see all of our favourite characters again, in the guys and girls that live at the compound. I must say that my favourite character and my favourite relationship in the book was Aspen and the relationship she had with Tim. My ovaries just went BOOM!

Tim is mad at the world. He’s lost his hearing due to a hereditary condition and he doesn’t know how to deal with it. He think

Just when you think that you can’t love this series more than you already do...the author gives us Tim! I smiled, I swooned and I balled like a baby. Tim absolutely stole my heart and exploded my ovaries when it came to his love for Aspen and Oliver!

Great couple

I absolutely loved Milah in this one. Not that there was anything wrong with Tim, but Milah was hilarious. Her inner thoughts just cracked me up. This was a little too slow for me. It took forever for these two to get together and then it felt rushed. Tim had a lot of baggage to deal with and this bogged the story down a bit. He was way too hard on himself. Tim was such a sexy guy and the author could have heated it up a lot more. Nevertheless an enjoyable read.

Oh. My. Swoon. Prepare yourself, because Kristy Marie’s Interpreter delivers all the feels! I’ve loved the previous three, standalone books in the Commander in Briefs series, but this latest installment is my favorite although it is hard to choose. Tim is a former Marine, who lives in a group home for veterans who are trying to get back on their feet. They’re his family in every way except blood, and they push him to get a job teaching at a school to help pull him from the depression that he’s b ...more

My book buddy said I don't need to give this one a review and she is right, I don't as the words speak for themselves.

This book made my face do a Heilin' fling, my eyes lifted, my mouth curved, I smiled, I burst out laughing and I bawled like a baby. It had so much emotion but so much power behind the words and message.

Like Timaeus, I suffer from genetic hearing issues and I loved that Kristy Marie told his story (and his Mother's) and how this should not hold anyone back. It doe

This book was sent to me as a member of the blog tour for an honest review.

After reading all of the other stand alone books in the Commander in Briefs series, I jumped at the chance to read and review the next installment, and as usual I was not disappointed or let down by Kristy Marie.
This book is about Tim and Milah and their live story. This book is so funny in places yet so touching and heartbreaking in others too.

Please buckle your seat belt, Mr. Lambros is one crazy ride.

I can't describe this book better than the quote above does. Every time I finished a book in this series, I think it can't get any better than this. And then comes the next book and knocks me off my feet instantly. Interpreter is, hands down, the most emotional book in this series and I couldn't get enough of Tim and Milah.

Always be brave. Especially when you're scared.

I didn't think Kristy Marie could ever write a story that would make me fall in love with someone more than she made me fall in love with Major Cade Jameson.

I think she just did with Interpreter and I'm not sure if I'm okay!

I absolutely LOVE these Marines and their ladies and Theo and his Commander!

This story is beautiful, touching, feisty, funny, emotional, steamy, and everything else in between! Tim and Milah are EVERYTHING! This story is EVERYTHING!

Every book in this series keeps getting better and better! Interpreter is book four but if you've read the series from the beginning, then you've already met Tim. There are so many amazing characters in this series. I'll be honest, while I loved all the books, so far Interpreter is my favorite. Tim has had my attention for a long time and I was so impatient for his story. I'm also eager for Vic's story too.

You know when you pick up a book and just feel like you’ve come home because you love and have dearly missed ALL of the characters?!

This book, this series, and this author does that for me!!

Kristy Marie continuously blows me away book after book in her Commander in Briefs series and I. CANNOT. EVER. GET. ENOUGH.

Everything about Interpreter just made me FALL. IN. LOVE. EVEN. MORE. with all of Kristy’s men, especially Tim, because OH MY GAH. Can I just say he (ALMOST)

An emotional book that will capture from the very first page and won't let you go until the end. This was Kristy Marie's best military book to date. It also has sign language as well..

Read an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Interpreter is an incredible and heartfelt read! Kristy Marie delivers an emotional book filled with laugh-out-loud moments, all the angst from a broody hero, witty banter, and so much sass from a strong Latina heroine!

I absolutely devoured this book! Interpreter was my first Kristy Marie read - I know I'm so disappointed in myself right now, and I was blown away by what I've been missing! I was literally trying but failing to conceal my laughter with this one. The fact that Kristy Marie can fit

I love this series and the characters so much.
Tim is one of the kind man that has to accept or change his life in better but as always, it’s a long and hard process to get there.
Milan is sweet and caring and wears killer stilettos in the most awkward situations.
Together they are fire and prove that love doesn’t have limits.

"I let Tim’s intent gaze fluster me. He made me feel exposed when I was fully clothed. And when his eyes tracked my lips, watching, reading every movement…. Gretchen just thinks men with babies make the best porn. They don’t. Men who lip-read, who rely on reading your body to communicate, now that’s porn."

I can't even believe it's been a year since I first met Tim in "Gorgeous" and claimed him for myself.
That infamous scene y'all... wink-wink.
Oh, we have so many of those here and they take on a whole different meaning and depth - aside from being hot as all f-ck, obviously.
I've waited and Kristy Marie did not disappoint. Ah, as if that's even a thing that would happen.
Sure enough, she delivered and gifted us with yet another beautiful, heartfelt storyline that will give you all the feels.

With each book in the Commander in Briefs series it just gets better and better. Interpreter, the fourth book which is Tim’s story definitely brought the emotions and left a lasting impression on my heart. And that heart is scattered within the pages of this book. I’ve been anticipating and wanting his story, and as much as I’ve loved all the previous books, I’m not lying when I say it’s hard to choose a favorite, but this book and Tim ultimately became my favorite.

Another great book from Kristy! I am completely in love with these characters from this series. Not only Tim and Milah, but ALL of them. Theo and Anniston. Cade and Breck. Hayes and Bianca. Aspen. Vic. Mason. Felipe!! Kristy has this indescribable talent of making you fall in love with this whole tribe of family.

Interpreter was such a passionate, flawless story. As we all know, Tim lives with a hearing impairment that is slowly taking the ability to hear away from him. What we also know, is Kris

Beta Read this Perfection!!!

I've waited for Milah and Tim for a long time, and it was worth every second!!

This story brings Milah a Costa Rican immigrant who is looking to fulfill her family's dreams and find her own path in the process.
Tim a Marine who has just discovered that he is becoming totally deaf and has to fight with it and with the ghosts of his past.
None of them have time or energy to fall in love, but fate is always ready to take action, because they are two people with real problem

Tim & Milah!

Humor in well-placed moments, heartbreak in others. I had smiles and frowns while reading.

Milah is a hoot. She’s definitely got sass and a crazy way of looking at life. Tim may be angry but his heart is huge and his lack of belief in himself was heartbreaking. Between the two there is so much love and compassion with intense intimate moments. And I really loved Tim’s journey. It wasn’t easy but the change was breathtaking.

The characters are flawed with obstacles to get to that HEA.

I absolutely loved this book!

Milah is a teacher from Costa Rica, and lives in the States with a work visa. Unfortunately her job is on the line and no job means no visa.

Tim starts working for the school and is helping out in Milah’s classroom.

They have great banter between them, sparks are flying, Milah gives as good as she gets it. I love the dynamic between them. Throw in Oliver, that absolutely adorable little boy.
This book is absolutely fantastic, so much love. It lets your ovaries explode
