****3.5/5 starsmputney-onceasoldier


An average-girl romance that’s not average.

Recommended readers:

  • If you like a historical romance
  • If you’re a fan of a come-back story in your romance
  • If you like Elizabeth Hoyt, Lisa Kleypas,  and Mary Balogh

Here’s my Rankings:

  • 4/5 for characters
  • 3/5 for plot
  • 3.5/5 overall
  • 3/5 steaminess


Sometimes it’s good to see the good girl get the guy, right? I mean most romances have the passionate, headstrong girl getting the guy – but what about the average girl. The one who’s always taking care of everyone else and never getting the attention she deserves. Well, Mary Jo Putney created this girl – only she’s not a boring, Cinderella heroine, she’s Athena Markham.

Despite not having your typical passionate storyline, there’s something special about creating the same masterpiece with a real, average girl romance – without the average girl feeling. Mary Jo Putney shows some versatility in Once A Soldier – and if you still wonder what I’m trying to explain, check it out for yourself. Shop all Mary Jo Putney on Amazon.
