Publisher's Summary

"There's that guy again, Regan. Look."
I looked up to see the guy Shaquanna was referring to. He was the same guy who'd been coming into the coffee shop where I worked as a waitress every day. I didn't think anything of it. He was probably new in town or just passing through.
He shuffled in and sat down in a booth near the window. He carried a green duffel bag that he dropped on the booth seat next to him. I figured he must be military because his green looked Army issue. I took a moment to study him. His medium brown hair was thick and in need of a haircut. Dark stubble marred his jaw, and from this far away, I couldn't tell what color his eyes were.
"He's sitting in your section, Regan. As usual." Shaquanna grinned suddenly. "Why, I think you got yourself a secret admirer," she said in a fake southern drawl. She gave the man a closer look. "Your mystery man could seriously use a shower, shave, and a haircut..."

Worth the read.

 “I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author.

This genre of book is outside of my usual comfort zone but being a military spouse I was intrigued by the title of this book and felt the need to 'read' it.

I found that the story doesn't have much of a plot however regardless of that it was certainly a good listen.
It follows the lives of a waitress/art student and a marine.

It was a feel good story and I enjoyed it.

As for the narrator, I was slightly disappointed. It was clear that the narrator was reading a book as opposed to telling a story.

Overall though, it was quite enjoyable.

I would definitely read more from this author :)

Good premise but with some flaws

Any additional comments?

Regan falls for a soldier, Daniel, who returns from war damaged. Regan is a kind and practical person who tries to help Daniel work through his problems. The problem I have with the story is that it feels disjointed. At the start of the book we learn about Regan’s passion for boating, but nothing about it after that. Also there were times when the writer used the term “again”, so I thought I’d missed something earlier, but it was the first time the situation was happening. Also the narration is not that strong so it added to a less than ideal audiobook.

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.

Review

Where does Her Soldier Boy rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Soldier boy ranks quite high among the audio books I have listened to. It is the only one I have read that is about an injured soldier who is so cruelly treated by those who should be his loved ones. I will look out for other ones now I have come across this one. They will probably be as hard to read as this one was. So thought provoking, why are people so cruel?

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I was moved by all the interaction with Daniel, my heart grieved for him. His suffering was so immense and he did not deserve any of it. The scene at his ex wife's house where she harangued him and accused him of not saving two of his men was harrowing to say the least. His meeting at the park where he said goodby to his son, the little boy instinctively knew what a good man Daniel was.
This was a beautiful book a real tear jerker. So many horrible people and one beautiful girl with a shining soul who saw the matching soul in a broken man and brought it back out to shine again.
