I was gifted an ARC in return for an honest review
“𝙇𝙤𝙫𝙚 𝙞𝙨 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙤𝙣𝙡𝙮 𝙧𝙚𝙖𝙡 𝙨𝙪𝙥𝙚𝙧𝙥𝙤𝙬𝙚𝙧.”
𝙏𝙧𝙖𝙫𝙞𝙨, 𝙖.𝙠.𝙖. 𝙏𝙧𝙪𝙘𝙠, 𝘿𝙖𝙮𝙩𝙤𝙣 is focused on two things: settling into his position at the Coast Guard Academy and helping his younger brother stay out of trouble. So even though the beautiful, fandom loving 𝙅𝙚𝙧𝙨𝙚𝙮 𝘽𝙖𝙣𝙣𝙚𝙧 is tugging at his chest in funny ways, he doesn’t intend on acting on those emotions. Not when he’ll eventually be moving on, and she’ll be staying behind.
But when Jersey suddenly finds herself in desperate need of medical care that she can’t afford, Truck does the only thing he can think of to help… he marries her.
Jersey has been struggling to keep her and her sister afloat ever since their dad was sent to jail. The pain she feels on a regular basis isn’t anything she can stop to think about until she ends up at the E.R. in the protective arms of the one man who makes her pulse beat faster than the superheroes she worships.
When chaos invades their lives, their temporary deal starts to crumble, leaving hearts and souls twined together in such a way that there’s little chance of escape without permanent damage. Unless they just surrender to it all and let love heal them both.
From award-winning author, LJ Evans, comes a novel inspired by Lady Antebellum’s “Ocean” about resilience and love. You don’t want to miss this slow burn, military romance.

ALL THE FEELS… that’s what this book did to me. Had my emotions everywhere.
Jersey & Travis – I fell in love with him at “marry me”. And I empathized with Jersey throughout the book. She and I have so much in common and he was just the perfect Captain Coast Guard.
As usual LJ did not disappoint with this story. It was beautifully written. Has real life issues that isn’t addressed enough. Has real love in it, and not the fairy tale type. The unusual type. The type that makes it real and makes you work at it. The type we don’t believe we deserve.
Both these characters are broken in a sense. Both feel responsible for the situation that they’re in. Both feel like failures, even too each other. And yet, they are both superheroes in their own right and perfect for each other!
I have read every one of the books in the Anchor Series and let me tell you, they keep getting better and better. This author has the gift of telling stories that pull at your heartstrings.
Go! Read this book. There’s love, sibling complications, a coastie to fall in love with and a comic loving heroine.
Avenged by Love will be released on 29 April 2020.
