Special Forces - Soldiers (Special Forces, #1) - Aleksandr Voinov,  Marquesate,  Vashtan What a journey. What an epic, heartbreaking, raw, brutal, devastating, beautiful journey.

Soldiers spans over about 10 years. It spans the time it took these enemy soldiers to come to terms with how they feel and who they are. This wasn’t particularly fast paced or action packed, there was such a slow build in their relationship that I didn’t even know what was happening. To me, I mean. I didn’t know what was happening to me until BAM! all these emotions were just hitting me. I was so completely invested in Dan and Vadim and I had no idea! I had no idea until their time apart was leaving me breathless and waiting, until my heart was aching every time they had to say goodbye. Needless to say, this was an achingly beautiful story.

I’m in this for the long haul with Dan and Vadim. I need their HEA. Need it. Next up, Mercenaries. I think I need some fluffy romance first. Give me some meet-cutes, tight little asses, and fluttering holes first. THEN I can come back to Dan and Vadim.
