Summary

She's shy, he's stoic...not the hardest personality traits to overcome, but Sophie Carson and Roman "Chief" Proudfit have their work cut out for them.

Sophie has a crush on the silent-but-studly firefighter next door. She's been pining away silently while secretly helping the hardworking man by mowing his lawn - which he thinks is being done by her nonexistent husband and/or boyfriend. He's definitely not big on neighborly chitchat, but with her stutter, that suits Sophie just fine. But now a misunderstanding at a bar has put him even further out of her reach.

Roman's difficult upbringing on an Indian reservation is a sore spot, so when he thinks Sophie is taking advantage of poor people for medical trials at her workplace, he lets her know exactly what he thinks. But when he discovers he misunderstood, he's man enough to admit it...and also that he should have opened his eyes to his beautiful, sensitive neighbor sooner.

As the couple gets closer, each helping the other overcome lifelong pains, for the first time in years, Roman has something to live for other than his job. And, as he discovers when Sophie puts herself in danger, something even bigger to lose....

Shelter for Sophie is the eighth book in the Badge of Honor: Texas Heroes Series. Each book is a stand-alone, with no cliffhanger endings.

Another lovely read

I love Susan Stoker. The books always have good characters in them and the female roles within are not just the archetypal pretty girl/perfect girl. I'm a sucker for a happy ending and I love that there are intermingling stories within the series you can follow.

Shelter for Sophie

Once again Susan Stoker has outdone herself!! By creating kickass characters she once again reaffirms the message that love conquers all and that everyone deserves to be loved.

I absolutely adored the main characters Sophie and Chief and their frank and open relationship. Stokers creation of Sophie as a heroine who can hold her own but yet at the same time can be vulnerable and exposed with her man is inspiring. How Sophie interacts with those around her both burn victims and the homeless made me love her even more. The glimpses of how the homeless and burn victims live adds another interesting dimension to the story and gives an insight into worlds I had not experienced before. I also loved the insights into the lives of characters we've met previously and cannot wait for Conor + Erin's story!!! Without a doubt a must read!!!

Shelter for Sophie

Love, love, love Susan Stoker. I wish she could write as fast as I read. I am always chomping at the bit for her next book. I love that she has real life issues built in to her characters.

So worth the wait!

What about Erin Mallon’s performance did you like?

I loved that she was able to perform both the male and female roles so well and distinctly. At some points when Chief was talking, i almost forgot that the narrator was a female! Also, she did an exceptional job with the stutter for Sophie!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

yes and i totally did!

Any additional comments?

Chief and Sophie were amazing. I was so impatiently awaiting the release of this book and i have to say, I loved this book so much. First off the narrator, Erin Mallon, did a fantastic job with this book and the stutter for Sophie ( this was my one fear about the audible version)! I love how their first interaction in the book comes about and also how she reacts in their next meeting. Chief is alpha, but also is very open with his feelings and beliefs. He was strong and sensitive at the same time and that was perfect for them! The bond that the two have is fantastic and i love love love that Mrs. Stoker took the time to research some Navajo language and traditions. This book was a great addition to the series and i look forward to the next book!

Erin is so amazing narrating Susan Stoker books. I buy every audible connected to her series. Erin reads with emotion for the characters. She nailed Sophie's character.

Another Winner

Loved this story it had so many elements that kept me engaged. The performance by Erin was awesome as always. Chief and Sophie found their other halves. They found in each other acceptance and most importantly love.
