Publisher's Summary

From New York Times and USA Today best-selling author Nicole Blanchard

I thought it was just one night with my brother's best friend.

The boy I had dreamt about since he gave me my first kiss, under the lights of the Ferris Wheel.

I knew he was about to leave for a year - no chance for a future.

But our one night together would create memories for a lifetime.

Our paths crossed again, but I had lied, and he was no longer the man he once was. He was warring against demons. Against the silence that was threatening to swallow him. And I had kept a secret from him, one he would never forgive me for.

But my secret was about to be ripped open. Displayed for the world on national news. And I had only one way to repair the damage.

I had to trust the man I lied to.

The man I never got the chance to make a life with.

The only man who could save what we had created together.

Loved Warrior

I really loved Warrior! I had already read the ebook ,but the audiobook just takes the story to a whole new level. I especially loved Joshua Gibson , he was just perfect as Ben's voice. He really brought Ben's character to life for me.
Susan Fouche did a great job as Olivia's voice also. I highly recommend this audiobook you won't be disappointed, give it a listen!

Thrilling Second Chance Romance!

Wow, what a ride this was! Warrior is the second book in the 'First to Fight' series and what a thrilling addition! Warrior is another name for a Marine but all the main characters are warriors in their own way. Ben has had his eye on his best friends younger adopted sister, Olivia, for years. Olivia has been in love with Ben since she was 13 years old. They have danced around each other for years, taking and giving and stepping back again. Just when you think it will work for them, life happens and it all seems hopeless again. Ben & Olivia are both smart, strong people in some ways and still young and maturing in others. Ben is attentive, funny and protective. He feels that he must take care of everyone from his younger brothers to his fellow marines to Olivia. When things don't go perfectly, he blames it on himself. Olivia is kind, loving and a bit of a spitfire. Because she was adopted, she doesn't want to be a burden on anyone so she feels she must do everything herself. They are a lot alike but compliment each other as well. Their banter is intelligent and funny and their chemistry is explosive. But when dangerous events start happening, will the mystery and fear they experience bring them together or tear them apart? I love all the secondary characters and the close knit family and friends, they make the story more honest and believable. I felt it was a little rushed at the end but the rest of the story had a good pace with some mystery & suspense to keep you engaged.

I enjoyed both Susan Fouche, and Joshua Gibson's performance. Fouche easily made me feel every emotion that Olivia went thru and Gibson's voice was so smooth and spellbinding. They made me feel like I was right there and apart of this world.

This standalone will make you feel everything from love to loneliness, laughter to heartbreak, and joy to terror. This is a wonderful series and I am looking forward to listening to more from this author.

hold on tight

Olivia and Ben face so many obstacles. The tragedy he deals with while deployed, the misunderstanding once he gets home, and the danger that targets Olivia.
Nicole Blanchard knows exactly how to wring every emotion from you. Joshua Gibson and Susan Fouche breath life into these characters.

LOVE WILL EVER LAST

What a beautiful love story, where true love will get there no matter what happens as we see between Ben and Libby.
yes there are moments where, when I could throttle Ben for keeping things back & thinks he's doing things for the right reasons, as he doesn't want to lay down his deep memories & feelings.
Even after everything Libby has/is going through she still being strong.
But it's not until it's practically ripped out of his again does he reacts.
Great has love, suspense & it's a great story

Ben has my heart

Well this is the first book I've listened to that I've already read. Wow. I felt the love of Ben and Olivia and their inner turmoil. I felt the struggle and heartache these two were going through more hearing the story than reading. This may be my new way of reading. This story is so worth the read.

Loved it!

I also have an eBook of this story and loved reading along with the narrators. Joshua Gibson most definitely captured Ben's character and brought him to life. Susan did a good job with Olivia, though at some parts I felt that her smooth, seductive voice felt a little overdone. All in all, great audiobook.

So Brilliantly Exqusite and Utterly Perfect!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would most definitely recommend this audiobook to a friend. It's a wonderful experience! The narrators are so absolutely perfect, and their deep emotional connection to the story comes through crystal clear. Their paring is perfect, and they both stirred my heart and mind while allowing me to savor and cherish this story one more time.

What did you like best about this story?

I loved just how amazing these narrators are for this story. Their performance of the characters they portray is wonderfully phenomenal!! I am not sure there would be any better choices that could be made.

Which scene was your favorite?

The last scene where Ben is reunited with the last member of his team. That was specatular on so many levels. Not to mention how it brought in Jack and Sophie's story which takes off next.

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

The next to last scene where Ben puts Cole to sleep and then reacts so viscerally to Olivia seeing in her a towel after her shower. He realized how lost he is to her and their son Cole, and he wouldn't have it any other way. Their road has been excruciatingly hard and unfairly stacked against them, but they have won and overcome. There are exactly where they are meant to be.

Any additional comments?

I seriously can't love this story and the author anymore. Her stories are without a doubt epic and fantastic! I can't get enough of them, and I can never wait patiently for her next masterpiece to release. :)

So so so good!!

I received an arc audible copy for an honest review.

Wow! I loved this book and being able to listen to it? A-mazing!! This is the first book I've listened to and it was a fabulous experience!
Loved the story line and I was always trying to figure out who 'it' was throughout the book...I love this in a book so it makes it more enjoyable :)
I'm not American so sometimes the different accents take a while to get used to. I loved Ben's narrator but it took me a while to get used to Olivia's. Not complaining though :)
Definitely 5* from me and I think I'm going to be buying more audible books from now on!!
