“For Once In My Life” ~Cynthia Roberts~ Review



Christina Morandt spent most of her young adult life perfecting her talent and then performing worldwide as the prima ballerina for the Savannah Ballet Theatre. When she decides to retire at the peak of her career, she returns to Savannah to open her own dance studio and settle into a life of comfort and solitude.

Captain Garret Rickford is a seasoned Apache helicopter pilot for the U.S. Army, who is awarded a head instructor position at the Hunter Army Airfield in Savannah, Georgia after serving four tours carrying out assault and rescue missions over Iraq and Afghanistan. He returns home, while secretly battling the haunting traumas of war and the death of his dearest friend and fellow comrade.

She was raised on a horse ranch in Wyoming. He was raised in the Highlands of Scotland. They were opposites in so many ways, each never expecting to cross paths with the other. But, they did, and when the spark of attraction ignited, there was no extinguishing the passion once it flamed out of control.


My love of reading romance fiction goes back to those early years when I was raising a
young family. It wasn’t until much later in life, that I actually took up the pen to write
and my first historical romance, Wind Warrior was born. I don’t fit into one specific
genre. When the ideas start to flow, lord only knows what category they’ll fit into **wink

I wish I could have gotten to this point in my career much sooner rather than later, but
life simply got in the way far too many times. Because of those multiple detours,
however, I have become a more passionate and expressive writer and can draw upon
those painful moments in my past, when I need to create the kind of raw human emotion

I want my readership to feel.

It is my hope you walk away with not just an entertaining read, but the importance in
knowing, “Without imagination & dreams, we lose the excitement of wonderful

This is the third book in the series that I have had the pleasure of reading. Cynthia Roberts definitely knows how to keep your attention and keep you coming back for more. Time after time the book is excellently written, with characters you love and a story that does not disappoint. I was asked to review this series without any previous knowledge of the books or the author but I have not been disappointed in my decision to review at all! The names of the books are what caught my attention, I am a lover of music, so I knew I just had to read these!!! πŸ™‚

Even though it is the third book in the series it can be read as a standalone. It is a fantastic read! If you love romance and a bit of seriousness then these are the books for you! For Once In My Life is a wonderful love story between a retired prima ballerina turned teacher, Christina, and Captain Garret Rickford, an Apache helicopter pilot. A chance meeting in the gorgeous town of Savannah causes sparks to fly between them, igniting possibly something more?

It always amazes me how this author can address real life issues and intertwine them into a wonderful love story. In this story we get a touch of how PTSD can affect the lives of the ones we love. She brings this story to life and enfolds us into these characters lives. She shows us that sometimes life doesn’t go how we have planned. Sometimes we need to let go of what is holding us back and look to the future, so that we can embrace the good things that are to come!

Fantastic read and I definitely recommend this book and all the others in the series to everyone! Please do yourself a favor and go find them! Buy links are below! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚
