It’s been years since Milena Reinhardt has seen TJ “Rock” Rockwell. The last time, he was nearly a shell of a man…but he was her man…and he tore her heart out of her chest. Circumstances unbeknownst to TJ have ensured Milena’s never fully recovered.
TJ left his sniper days behind—for the most part—when he left the Army and become a respected Texas Highway Patrolman. He also left behind Milena. He’s convinced it was the right thing to do at the time, but that doesn’t mean he’s ever forgotten the woman who loved him in his greatest time of need…or has stopped thinking of her since.
Neither thought they’d see each other again, until a pedophile’s operation is taken down and the evil man sets his vengeful sights on Milena. This could be their second chance, even though TJ and Milena have enough secrets and trust issues to end any relationship before it starts. But when the bad guy closes in, they’ll have to set aside their fears and trust in each other, to save the one thing that means the world to them both. 

** Justice for Milena is the 10th book in the Badge of Honor: Texas Heroes Series. Each book is a stand-alone, with no cliffhanger endings.

** TJ and Milena face a truly nasty foe. While his sins are never described on the page, certain basic information is included for the characters to grasp the full breadth of the villain’s evilness. For my more delicate readers, please remember…good always triumphs over evil.

    Wow! What a great read. There was a rollercoaster of emotion as we finally get TJ's story. Milena is no pushover, but she can't help rekindling her love for the man that broke her heart once. I might've fallen for him myself in chapters 11 and 12. The villain, wow, he was a nasty piece of work. That's putting it mildly too. Couldn't help but want that he gets his comeuppance. We never get the full extent of how bad he is- just broad strokes to paint an ugly picture. Just an overall fantastic read that will leave you wanting more, while twisting and twirling your emotions all over the place.
  • Another great read!!

    Susan Stoker wrote such a great book with this one! Erin Mallon did an awesome job narrating the story, and she was spot on the entire time. It is so easy with her narration, to not get lost while reading. This is TJ’s (the highway patrol officers) story. In the story, TJ was medically discharged from the army after a mission went wrong. he came home with a chip on his shoulder and his thinking all messed up. he made a decision and had to deal with that decision. now a few years later, he accidentally sees her again. she’s the woman who has held and still holds his heart. she has a secret though. she has a huge secret! she also has a job with some very bad guys (unbeknownst to her). Can TJ handle her secret? Can he forgive her secret?? Can he save her when her bosses find out??? This is a great read!!!

  • TJ gets his story

    By Sunsh!ne09
    I have been looking forward to TJ’s story for awhile now and I was not disappointed. Justice for Milena is one of the best second chance romances I’ve read. With such a deep and moving story tied together with the suspense, there is no doubt that all of Susan Stoker’s fans will be pleased with TJ’s long awaited happy ending. While there are dark themes, Mrs. Stoker doesn’t delve into them and they are written in an extremely classy way, they are just hinted upon the right amount that it adds a certain element to the bad guys. Mrs. Stoker has upped the ante and gone to the next level with romantic suspense that will be hard to beat.

    TJ and Milena's story was wonderful. Full of emotion, bad guys, good friends and lots of love. I hate spoiler alerts so I won't make one, but this book had many moments that caused me to say, "Awww!". Read it. Trust me. You'll love it too.
  • This is a perfect hero story

    Thomas James “TJ” Rockwell is a broken man, discharged from the Army after terrorists left him the only one alive killing off the rest of his team. Unable to cope with the pain and loss once he is living stateside, TJ is a shell of the man he once was. His anger consumes him and he finds he is unable to enjoy the woman who has come to mean the world to him so after a tough decision he up and leaves in the middle of the night, no word, no trace that he even existed in her life. TJ walks out and leaves behind the one good thing in his life, Milena Reinhardt. Three years went by and Milena Reinhardt never stopped loving TJ Rockwell. It didn’t mean she would open up her arms and allow him to jump right back in where things left off. Hell no. TJ broke her heart when he walked out in the dead of night without a word. Just because you love someone doesn’t give them the right to walk back in and trample your heart all over again. She isn’t sure she could survive it twice. TJ doesn’t make is easy for Milena to say no. He regretted walking out every day for the past three years. He plans to make it up to her every day for the rest of his life, but first he has a duty to protect her from a sick pervert that is on the loose. Once the man is caught then TJ can move forward with their future because he doesn’t plan on having one without Milena in it. Justice for Milena has every element that makes a good hero romance. A broken, repentant man who puts his woman first without being an over the top dominant jerk. And the heroine is strong, but also smart enough to lean on the hero so she isn’t cocky. TJ and Milena are the perfect combination together and I was rooting for them the entire way. Justice for Milena is also a lead in to Stoker’s next novel Rescuing Sadie which I know is nothing new in the writing world, but I’m super excited because this book ties two author’s worlds together; Masters and Mercenaries by Lexi Blake and Delta Force Heroes by Susan Stoker. I am a fan of both worlds, I loved this book, so I’m super pumped to continue reading what Stoker brings to the table next.

    Another fantastic book by Susan Stoker in the Badge of Honor series. Ut felt as if I could actually “feel” the feelings between TJ and Milena as they work thru issues and mistakes made. I laughed out loud with the diaper scene in the book. I enjoy reconnecting with past characters and love when you get glimpses of what the next books will be. Can’t wait. I was fortunate enough to receive this book as an ARC, but I always purchase the ebooks in support of the author. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
