Suzie finally gets her story. It is obvious to everyone that she and her pal Grayson are sparking off each other in a more than just friend’s kinda way. She refuses to see it even as she slowly lets him into the most secret parts of her life. She has reached a crossroads, it is time for her to move on and start living the life she wants, but she doesn’t think she is ready. Meanwhile, Grayson is dealing with some life-altering issues of his own, and he isn’t sharing. Red flag. Bull. Suzie isn’t going to leave it alone, and it could jeopardize their friendship.
To be perfectly clear, I have been waiting for Suzie’s story since the series started. I was even a little bit jealous of Phoebe because she got to go next, while I was, apparently not-so-patiently, waiting for Suzie. She is the heart of the group, everyone’s loveable, but annoying baby sister. Her klutzy antics are the perfect foil for tension and her straight to the point questions and observations may be occasionally off-putting and crass, but she does have a knack for doing an end-round, breaking through tough exteriors into the soft gooey centers of her friends. Even before this book, it was obvious that she was being ridiculously stubborn about her no man policy and I am so glad to see her adopted family ganging up on her to move past her ex and his legacy. Grayson is just perfect for Suzie, even she can see it in those moments when she totally honest with herself
Speaking of adopted family… I am unashamedly fascinated by the constant pranking of the irascible uncles. I am so glad, that Suzie feels the same way so I don’t have to beg to get an uncle’s only story. Then again, imagine, a day in the life at McGraw’s Pub… Seriously, imagine it, pretty please? Of course, the real question is who gets to walk Phoebe down the aisle. I am pretty sure I know who, but it will fun to watch it play out. The one-upmanship is awesome.
Another great romantic comendy read by D.E. Haggerty. This book can easily be read as a standalone but will be enjoyed as part of the series. I can’t wait for Faith’s story, next up for this series.
I received an advance review copy for free, and I am leaving this review voluntarily.
“Can a klutzy girl who claims to be a man-hater find love? Spoiler alert: She can!” – A Soldier For Suzie by @DEHaggertyTweet
A Soldier for Suzie: A Military Romantic Comedy (Love will OUT Book 3)
Special new release price of $2.99!
A soldier with a secret and a nosy woman determined to ferret out the truth. Surely, nothing could go wrong.
I’m the klutzy, happy-go-lucky girl everyone loves.
Except, I’m not. I’m not anywhere close to being happy. Oh sure, I force a big smile on my face and act all goofy. But it’s just that. An act.
And then Grayson walks into my life. Suddenly, those smiles start to feel real. Only Grayson has demons of his own. He’s a soldier returning from war and he’s got the scars to prove it.
Maybe not all men are the scum of the earth. Grayson certainly isn’t. Maybe I can give him a chance. Maybe I can erase his scars.
And maybe, as my best girl always says, Love will OUT.
Assuming I don’t screw it all up first.
A Soldier for Suzie is book 3 of the Love will OUT series but can be read as a standalone.
This friends to lovers military romantic comedy features a heroine who is hiding a boatload of hurt, a hunky soldier she wants to save, a pair of friends who are excited it’s finally their turn to play matchmaker, and a makeshift family of former Army buddies who think telling dirty jokes is a sign of love.

D.E. Haggerty is actually just plain old Dena, but she thinks using initials makes her sound sophisticated and maybe even grown up. She was born and raised in the U.S. but considers herself a Dutchie and not only because it sounds way cooler. After a stint in the U.S. Army, she escaped the US to join her husband in Holland. She fled Holland over ten years ago when she couldn’t stand the idea of being a lawyer for one single second more. Turns out Bed & Breakfast owner in Germany didn’t do it for her either. When the hubby got a job in Istanbul, she jumped ship and decided to give this whole writer thing a go. She’s now back in Holland, which she considers home. Sorry, Mom.
