  • More than a Soldier (2017, Lyrical Shine), second in the A Veteran’s Heart series byIrene Onorato, is a contemporary Christian romance with a good amount of suspense set in New York. The novel is a standalone story, even though characters fromA Soldier Finds His Way do cross over into this one. Rating: 4 starsThe heroine: Cindy Giordano has been struggling with the betrayal she experienced at the hands of her fiance and her sister. To top it off, she has now been laid off due to being the most [...]

Of course, she's angry and may never get over the betrayal, so instead, she's determined to pour all her energy into finding and meeting her brother, Edward. Except a simple meeting leads to so much more when she meets Hank Fleming, a scarred former special forces soldier that has survived a lot and still manages to see the best in life. However, with her ex determined to make her life a living hell, h [...]


  • "Received an Advance Reader Copy in exchange for a fair review"This story was different form the ones that I’ve been reading and I enjoyed it. The characters are average people, there’s a suspense plotline with a quite typical villain and a good cast of side characters. The romance is a slow-burn courtship, and I liked the book until the final part, when I felt the narrative dragged a little. I also enjoyed the way friendship and familial bonds were incorporated into the story.Throughout mos [...]


  • More Than a Soldier by Irene Onorato is the second book in this series. As a Christian romance the book is nice and not preachy, but a little anti climatic. I really like Hank in the first book and am glad that most of the characters looked past his physical differences. The thing that bothered me about the book is that neither main character really trusts the other with feeling and thoughts. They deal with situations, but other than the current condition or crisis they seem to hide a lot from e [...]


  • From the book's description I was expecting to thoroughly enjoy this story but unfortunately that wasn't the case. I found the beginning slow and rather stilted, particularly the references to God which seemed tacked on as an after thought and rather out of place. I thought the middle of the story when Cindy was being stalked was fast paced and well written but found the ending too understated, rather like a damp squib.I received a complimentary copy of this book from NetGalley. I was not compen [...]


  • More Than a Soldier is the second installment of the Veterans Heart series, an inspirational romance with a touch of suspense in the tale. The mix of the character's growth in their faith in God, their struggles and triumphs in life, and the developing romantic relationship are all well mixed together in an intriguing storyline. Former Special Forces soldier Hank Fleming is easy to like. He is kind, considerate, fun, protective, a good man, who doesn't seem to take himself too seriously, likes t [...]


  • Irene Onorato is a newer author for me to read. More than a Soldier is a contemporary Christian romance that deals with real life issues of betrayal, PTSD and life as a foster child is the second book by her that I have read. Both of the main characters were foster children. The impact on their lives comes through in their ability to be self-reliant. Cindy Giordano also had a more recent betrayal which needed to be worked through. Hank was a wonderful friend and later more as he modeled forgiven [...]


  • This was the first book I have read by this author. It was a clean romance with no gratuitous sex or foul language. Hank Fleming is a former Special Ops soldier who was wounded in Afghanistan. His foster brother, Edward, was also in the service, along with most of the men he knew. While visiting their parents, Edward's biological sister, Cindy, showed up looking for her biological family. Cindy and Hank are immediately attracted to one another and begin to spend time together. Time they both enj [...]


  • Review can be found here.These characters grew on me very quickly and I found myself not wanting to put it down until I got the happy ending I wanted, but getting there wasn’t going to be simple. Cindy has been betrayed by those closest to her (her ex-fiancé and foster sister) and now with time on her hands because she has no job, she decides to search for her biological brother. Her search leads her to not only finally meeting her brother, but she meets his foster brother, Hank, and their fo [...]


  • I liked this story from Irene. I like the way she puts her characters with her story line. It pulled me right to my heart. I felt so sad for Cindy. She gets fired and uses this time to find her adopted brother, Edward. He is in the service. She meets Hank who has been working on being injured from a grenade that killed the ones on a mission. He is deaf in one ear and a false eye or a patch, depending on his mood. Cindy keeps trying to get a job but her ex fiancee Eric stops her. He is ex as he s [...]


  • This author's writing is delightful! It doesn't matter which book you pick up to read that she's written, you will find yourself swept away with her characters; their challenges and their joys. If you're looking for a great book that's wholesome and enjoyable, be sure to read this latest release from Irene Onorato.


  • I really, really, really liked this book. Hank is such a fun guy, and Cindy is so strong spirited. I love how Hank is so protective over Cindy. Yup, I recommend this book to people who enjoy a good clean romance.


  • A GREAT book!! I love the writing of Irene Onorato!! Clean romance that shows how the characters overcome the true to life obstacles in life. You will love this book and the other in the Veteran Heart series!!


  • I read an advance copy of this book. I love the author's writing style, unique way with words, and sense of humor. Hank had problems with PTSD, and Cindy had trust issues, but I enjoyed reading how each eventually overcame them as their attraction for each other slowly developed into true love. In a nutshell, I loved the story, the characters, and how the author developed each character to bring the story to a satisfactory ending. I'm looking forward to book three in the series.
