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.

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!!

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 hearts. Kristy Marie is one of those authors for me. Interpreter is a perfect example of why.

Beautiful. There is no other word I can use that more accurately describes this story to me. FULL REVIEW TO COME!

Every time I pick up a novel

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

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 me soul.

“Then you build an army and go down with honor.”

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.

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.

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!

Thank God Kristy Marie gave us Theo! He

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!

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 ...more
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.

Tim is such a beautiful soul, you want to hug and cuddle him all

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

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)

That only word pretty much describes how I’m feeling right now. And the past hours after finished my reading.
The first time I read a silent character named Tim in Commander my love was instantaneous. No description was necessary. Like fate, I fell in love with him.
Through the next books, my love became bigger and stronger.
But the day I heard that he would have his own book I knew that my reading life would be complete.
I know I sound a little ridiculous and that I have others

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.
Kristy Marie has an incredible talent when it comes to putting pen to paper. Her books

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..

This is Kristy Marie at her best! I absolutely devoured this book! It is everything we love about K Marie's's witty and sexy with all-consuming characters, including a broody ex-Marine hero and sassy Latina heroine. The emotional story of Tim & Milah will steal your heart, and the interwoven humor of our favorite Commander in Briefs characters will have you laughing hysterically in between your tears of joy and heartache for this couple.

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.

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.

This book has made me truly and utterly speechless. I am positive my review will make no sense because this incredibly touching book has turned my mind into goo.

‘Interpreter’ by Kristy Marie is book number four in an incredible series that follows struggling Marines in their search for hope and happiness, and their respective quirky and stubborn heroines ready to take on the world for their men.

Interpreter got me. Damn my freaking heart…

This is an inspiring and engaging story, beautiful with this irresistible charm, wild and passionate. A hint of colorful characters and hotness all wrapped up in an explosive duet, Milah and Tim.

I loved so many things in the story, how emotional I was sometimes, how eager I was for every interaction between them, smiling so hard it hurt, craving and treasuring each moment. I have not enough

This is my first book by Kristy Marie and what a great introduction to her writing. This book touched me in so many ways. Tim and Milah are both fighters for what they want. The difference though is that they’re fighting for different things.

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.

You know what I love more than anything in a romance book? A vulnerable hero.

Yep. That’s it. Give me sexy man, beefcake, tattooed, broody alpha with some sort of vulnerability and watch me swoon.

Tim Lambros is the definition of vulnerable hero. A life of battling a genetic defect turns him into a broody a-hole. But, that little girl, his niece, she can light up his world. His family on the foundation refuses to let him suffer in silence; no matter how hard he fights – they will find a way to

After eight long years, she released her debut novel, Commander in Briefs. It was a long road, but she can honestly say, the road
