(Newswire.net -- Apr. 15, 2013) Portland, OR -- AJ began writing in the fall of 2012 after reading a best-selling romance trilogy that all her girlfriends had encouraged her read. She was disappointed. “I read these books because everyone was raving about how wonderful they were. I didn’t get it. There was a very limited plot that wasn’t based in any form of reality whatsoever. The characters were one dimensional and not relatable, and the sex was there for shock value. It wasn’t a love story at all,” she said upon the release of her debut novel ‘First Class to New York’, Book 1, in the First Class Novels series.
AJ sat at her computer and began to write a love story; one she thought all female readers would respond to. And they have! Now, just six months later, book number five in the series, ‘First Class Hero’, is available on Amazon Kindle and has been welcomed with 5 star reviews.
“Hero is about Paul Lathem. He has served his country with pride as a Navy Seal for over a decade and is now ready to begin the next chapter of his life. The story is about being fulfilled and finding the person who makes you feel whole,” AJ continued.
One reviewer wrote, “The caring way in which it is also shown that the lives of the serving military affects the families left at home was truly heartwarming.” Sharon -Amazon UK
“When I set out to write a series of romance novels, I wanted to create a family; a big, loving, a close-knit family. While I, myself am not Catholic, my fictional family, the Lathems, are. They believe in God, and in trying to leave the world a better place than they found it. They believe that family comes first and all brothers are friends too, not just siblings. When you read about them, I want you to feel their commitment to one another and to their respective causes.”
Another reviewer said, “While reading these books you feel as if you are a part of the Lathem Family that is how well the author develops the characters.” Debbie -Amazon USA
“Paul’s story needed to be more than ‘boy meets girl’ and sweeps her up in his arms to live a romantic fairytale. I wanted it to be a tribute to the men and women who sacrifice everything to protect others. I hope it does justice to those who courageously love the valiant souls who serve in our military.” AJ wiped a tear from her cheek. “It’s hard to watch a loved one be deployed into combat, knowing you may never hold them in your arms again. ‘First Class Hero’ is dedicated to those who love a hero enough to let them serve.”
