New Review!!! Colton-- Audra Cole & KB Winters!!!

Colton “Hawk” Hawkins is an ambitious Ranger in the United States Army and on track to follow in his father’s boot prints—become a decorated General. The only bump in the road? His Colonel’s shocking advice that in order to climb the next rung on the ladder in his military career, he needs to find a wife and settle down. With a looming deadline, and talk of a six-month tour on the horizon, Colton knows he has to act fast—if he has any chance at getting his promotion. 

Karena Harper is stuck in a dead end job, with no prospects on the horizon, and feeling more trapped by the day. After watching her parent’s marriage implode in a messy divorce filled with scandal and fighting, she holds no hope for ever falling in love and getting married. When she sees Colton’s online ad for an instant wife, complete with the perks of financial security and the potential for adventure, she finds herself thinking it would be the perfect escape from her hum drum life in retail hell. 
Neither Colton or Karena are looking for a fairy tale, but what happens when hearts get involved and the lines of the marriage contract start to blur? 
Will they let their guard down long enough to fall in love? Or, will they decide the potential for heartbreak isn’t worth the risk? 

Find out in the first book of the brand new series Army Wives! 

Colton is a novel length contemporary email order bride romance with an HEA! 


This was my first time reading any of this author's work, so I had no idea what to expect from the book. However, it can highly rated from an author friend of mine, so I decided to give it a go. I was glad I did. The premise was a bit different- military man basically is looking for a ready made wife, in order to make himself look more attractive to his superiors so that he can be promoted.
I have to commend the fact that he did go into the whole thing with an open mind, not expecting the best of the best, but that he was completely open and honest to the women he was advertising to, that he had certain expectations and this was basically a marriage of a business like nature, and not some fairy tale. Luckily his honesty paid off when he met the girl of his dreams online, who only wanted the same thing from life that he did, even if her reasons for getting into the whole mail order marriage thing were a bit different than his.
These two seemed to fit very well together, and did make for a believable couple, regardless of the way they were introduced to one another. They did seem to genuinely care for each other, and didn't just hop right in the sack based on their sexual chemistry. They seemed to have an actual connection, which always makes for a good read.
All in all, I was pleased with the way the story turned out, and look forward to reading about Lucas and Miles as well, particularly Miles as he is the most skeptical of love, it seems.
