Avenged by Love

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, pixie-like apparition, 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 reigns down on 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.

  • “I laughed and cried my whole way through the book in just one day, because I literally couldn’t put it down.” Goodreads Reviewer

  • “I’ve read all of Ms. Evan’s books. She brings her characters to life on the page. Her writing is vibrant and full of emotion. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend any of them because her stories are more than just romance, they are life with all of its ups and downs, decisions and risks and that glorious hope that happily-ever-after does exist. Forged by Sacrifice is no different.” Goodreads Reviewer

  • I love reading a book that I can just get lost in....lose track of time, forget it’s not real life, forget these are fictional character and not people I know....this is one of those books. Goodreads Reviewer

  • The writing is masterful with so many emotions and twists that brought real tears, by the way, but also plenty of love, passion, and laughter! The heart of this book is about family in all the ways you can create it, and the interactions between all the various characters draw you in and make you want to be part of their group too!” Goodreads review
