      **** 4 PTSD Stars ****ARC provided by Montlake Romance via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.Publication Date - November 26, 2013A Change of Heart is # 3 in a stand-alone series about a town named, Perfect, Indiana.  This book is Cory and Ted's romantic story.  I didn't read the other books and there wasn't a problem at all following the story and getting to know the characters from the prior books.  This was a sweet romance with moderate angst. Cory has just returned from Afghanist [...]

      Well, this was majorly angsty! I like angst, but there was very little joy to be found anywhere in this story. The premise was good, though the constant PTSD became irritating, especially as it was all cured at the 85% mark by the 'magical all-healing penis'. It came across as ludicrous, given Cory's earlier reactions to be touched/kissed etc.I stopped reading.

    3. Trish R. on said:

      This book was sad and depressing and regretful and unfair, and because it was all those things I think I would have liked it more if it had been a much shorter story, 300 pages was too much. All that was so drawn out it made the story not-all-that-good. There was so much push-pull coming from Cory it was hard to like her. And Ted had the patience of a saint. Really, there was just too much PTSD. Four books on PTSD in one series? All those nightmares and flashbacks, page after page. That’s just [...]

      Boy this one really got to me. I felt for Cory, no woman should be raped, let alone raped by a superior officer and then have the organization you work for betray you. I think that part is what made me want to rant. First Cory was raped literally, then it was like she was raped again by the Army for how they treated her in the aftermath. I have to admit that Ted has never been my favorite character, there was something about him that rubbed me the wrong way. However Ted was the perfect person fo [...]

      My MusingsA nice addition to this series. I enjoyed his the relationship developed between the key characters, and I liked both of them. As always the narrator is excellent. I can't wait to read the next one in this series. Happy ☺reading 📚!

    6. Librarian Judith on said:

      Ms. Longley has taken on a tough subject--Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and has brought us some wonderful characters. I love them all--and can hardly wait to read some of the other books in the series just so I can read more about these characters. Cory is not only fighting against the PTSD that she suffered, not as a result of enemy action but as a result of actions by someone she should have been able to trust. I hurt for her as she was going through the pain that is part of healing in a case [...]

      A Change of Heart was a emotional but heartwarming story about Ted and Cory. I had been waiting for this book in the series to come out for months and I wasn't disappointed! I love Ms Longleys writing style and I always feel like Im there with the characters. At times, its like you can actually feel what theyre going thru! Awesome read!!!

      I received a complimentary copy of this book as a part of a book tour in exchange for a fair and honest review. A contemporary romance dealing with serious emotional and mental health issues, A Change of Heart by Barbara Longley, made me reflect on things most of us take for granted. Well developed characters, good dialogue and plenty of angst kept me turning the pages to discover what was going to happen next. While the third book in the Perfect, Indiana series, this book can be read on its own [...]

      Cory was in the military and was raped by her C.O. The military tried to brush it under the rug but Cory took it all the way to Congress. So, the Military discharged her without pay after a year of courts in which she proved that this man raped her she was put down as “unfit for serve” and given a “borderline personality” diagnosis instead of PTSD for the rape. So, that meant no service or benefits. She had used all her own money to fight in court to have this man put behind bars of whic [...]

      A Broken heart.I give this book 4 stars.What does this mean to me? I loved this book, it was a great read!This book is part of a series called A love from the heartland, however it can be read as a stand alone book. I did not realize this book was part of a series until after I began reading and noticed the tag line under the title. I'm actually thrilled now and can't wait to grab some of the other books in the series to find the stories behind some of the background characters in this novel.A c [...]

      A Change of Heart is the third book in Barbara Longley’s Perfect, Indiana series, after Far from Perfect (Noah Langford and Ceejay Lovejoy) and The Difference a Day Makes (Paige Langford and Ryan Malloy). I’m a fan of the series because Longley has presented the lingering problems affecting Afghanistan veterans with surprising depth and a refreshing absence of the sentimental clichés to which authors writing about such characters too frequently resort. I found the third book particularly in [...]

      I really enjoyed this book about getting through the bad stuff with the help of some wonderful friends. Truly, the cast of characters in this book are what made it special. It's not that I didn't enjoy our hero and heroine, because I absolutely did, but this book is really about a group of folks who felt so real, I'd know them if I passed them on the street.Ms. Longley has a great skill for story-telling and making a reader care. She breathed life into these folks and gave them real problems and [...]

      I first came across Barbara Longley when book one from the Perfect, Indiana series was on sale at . With family members who have been in the military and suffered from PTSD, I decided to give her book a try. I am so glad I did! I loved the first book, Far from Perfect, that I immediately went out and downloaded the second book, The Difference A Day Makes. Again, I wasn't disappointed. As soon as I could I preordered the third book, A Change of Heart, but was lucky enough to win a copy through Fi [...]

      This book is a story of self discovery for Cory, she finds out that not all men are like the officer that brutally rape and beat her and that she can trust again. Cory also found out that you dont have to struggle all alone that it is ok to let other people, people that have been in a similar place to where you are now really can help.Ted is such a lovely guy genuine and really loving, the way he treats Cory after her attack is so very heart warming.This story is just a lovely feel good read, yo [...]

      I read a LOT of books every year!! Most of those I truly enjoy and share with those I know who also love to read. Every once in a while a book comes along that truly touches my heart. For 2013 this is that book!!This is a book about a woman's struggle with PTSD. And not your typical wartime issues. This book made me really think about some of the issues women in the military face.I know that topic can sound dark and depressing but this book isn't either of those things. It is a book filled with [...]

      Great book to make you realize what some of our troops go through away from home qnd the scars both physical and mental they have to work through. This book also highlights the goodness of some companies who help our vetarans. Wish there were more. I received this book free and was not required to give a review.

    18. Tamara Hughes on said:

      Loved this third book in the series. The hero in particular was such a nice, sweet guy. I also loved the twist that this military romance had the heroine as the veteran who had to deal with rape by a commanding officer. This issue has been in the news lately, and is something that needs to be addressed. Very well-written and compelling.

    19. kathyhansen on said:

      Faith and romancethe saga continues with a new twist on how the effects of not only war but the things that happened that change your life and how to cope with the situation and begin to get back to the life you deserve.

    20. Martha on said:

      Another nearly "perfect" story. Here in book # 3, Ted Lovejoy finally gets his well deserved happily-ever-after. He's a great guy and the right partner for Cory. His patience, kindness and sensitivity help her regain her confidence and trust in herself and in them.

    21. Mary on said:

      It was a great third book. Loved that this time the wounded warrior was female. Also loved that Ted finally got his chance at love. This entire series was a pleasure to read. You won't regret starting (and finishing) it.

    22. MK on said:

      This book brims with hope. Periods of hopelessness do not equal giving up. And that is why I will read this book again and again.I received an advance reader copy through NetGalley. Full review at fernweh428.wordpress/2013/

      Change of Heart This was a great book. It had depth in the characters especially the main female. If you like books about service members this is for you, especially with the romance.
