Faith by Andi Jaxon & AJ Alexander


Title: Faith
Series: SEAL’ed #5
Authors: Andi Jaxon & AJ Alexander
Genre: Military/Friends-to-Lovers Romance
Release Date: December 12, 2018
I originally joined the Navy as an escape, to become more than a country farm
boy. Being a Navy SEAL turned me into a man, but one without a life outside the
military. I thought that was all I needed. Until everyone around began to find
their Happily Ever Afters’. I realized my life was missing love, something I’ve
been longing for. All it took was one simple letter from home to remind me that
everything I ever needed was right there waiting for me. 
Losing the love of your life before he was able to meet his child was the hardest thing
I’d ever gone through. I tried to move on with my life, and find a new sense of
normalcy with my daughter and myself. One simple holiday act of kindness has
set my carefully choreographed life into a tailspin. I could never have guessed
writing a simple letter to a deployed sailor would bring us to a place we can
finally call ‘Home’ again. 
Can these two trust in the things they can not see to find true happiness?
**While Faith can be read as a standalone, it is best enjoyed after reading Honor, Love, Fate, and Power.**


My review:

Justin is a deployed SEAL. His friends/teammates have all settled down, and have had or are having kids. He’s starting to feel a bit left out and lonely. His sister talks him into signing up for a website that matches single soldiers with pen pals in the States. Becca is a widow of a soldier with a 3 year old daughter, Olivia. She is a nurse and her workplace decided to sign up to write to soldiers as a July 4 holiday service project. She is matched with Justin, and while they have a real connection and grow close, Becca is afraid to grow closer to him after losing her husband. She also discovers that her new good friends are Justin’s sister and his friends’ wives and girlfriends.

What I liked: Olivia stole the show! She was such a cute little girl. I liked that Becca didn’t try to hide her comic book nerdiness from Justin. I also liked the friendships in the book. I really liked that Justin and Becca got to know each other through the letters and emails before getting more involved with each other.

What I didn’t like: In several parts, the writing was a bit disjointed. I had to reread some sections to figure out who was talking or what exactly was going on, or because the paragraph was just awkward to read. Also, why was Becca’s drunk email ignored?? That had so much potential

Overall: Pretty good. It’s not amazing, but not bad either. Definitely enjoyable.

Rating: ♥♥♥ 1/2
