5 stars for Strong Enough by @JanaRichards_ #romance #smalltownromance #womensfiction #bookreview

Title: Strong Enough

Author: Jana Richards

Genre: Contemporary Romance, Small Town Romance

Book Blurb:

Charlotte Saunders has a full life—a rewarding career as a nurse, meaningful volunteer work at a dog shelter, and family, friends and pets she adores. But no matter how hard she tries, she can’t forget the horrible event that’s haunted her for ten years.

A survivor of childhood sexual abuse, Damon Greyson now helps others who have suffered trauma. His experience and intuition alert him to trouble in Charlotte’s past, and he wants to help her, if only she’d let him.

As they work together to help veterans suffering from PTSD and neglected dogs needing loving homes, their feelings for each other deepen. But when the trauma from Charlotte’s past roars back to life, both are forced to confront their painful histories—or die trying.

My Review:

A terrific addition to this super successful series, this book stands out as a powerful story. There is a great romance in this book, and it is presented in a wonderful fashion. There is much more to this story than the romance, though.

This is the story of two battered souls who have been savaged by life. The author does an incredible job of conveying the mental torment of Charlotte. Any person who has been victimized in such a fashion will quickly relate to Charlotte's story.

The same can be said about the story of Damon. The presentation of an adult still wracked by the horrific abuse in their youth is masterfully done. The reader is treated in watching the two damaged people find hope for the future and find a future.

This is a great romance and it is a great romantic suspense. This book is an emotional tribute to the power of the human spirit. The ability of the two lost souls to overcome their trauma is inspiring. A great book that means much more than one would think.

My Rating: 5 stars
