Gregory: A Hathaway House Heartwarming Romance Review
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Booksprout and I am voluntarily reviewing it. I adore this series. Each book is about a strong alpha warrior who was brought to his knee during conflict and is facing the battle of a lifetime. Enduring the pain of rebuilding his body and soul at Hathaway House. This story is one that just touches the soul. Gregory is a SEAL who was injured in battle. After various different treatments and therapy, he goes to Hathaway House as his former love, Meredith Anderson is a nurse there. They parted five years ago as Meredith didn't want Gregory to leave her for the Navy. These two have an emotional road to haul to get to their HEA. Both have to face their part in their break-up. Meredith also has the additional burden of seeing the man she once loved and still does, go through the journey of healing his broken body. There were so many great sections in this book that I had to re-read them over and over. This book is such a emotional roller-coaster. You will go on a high and then plunge into a low with the characters. Having this book written in a dual POV format really helps to make these two more human. This is a sweet, clean second chance romance that I would highly recommend to anyone.
I loved this book. I loved the story. I thought it was great that they had to work to make it work. He is a Seal, and she is a nurse. Both are strong with passion and never-ending love. That they both after so many years of loving and missing each other had so many doubts and both really want it to work but scared it would not. Making it work through adversity makes it all that much sweeter. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Gregory is recovering from an IED explosion and since most of his surgeries are done, he is researching rehab facilities to finish his recovery. He has experienced rehab and feels he has a pretty good handle on that part. While looking for a place he comes upon a picture of the staff at Hathaway House that includes Meredith triggering memories of the woman he met 5 years ago and knew for only 3 weeks. However he has not been able to forget her. They disagreed about him going back into the Navy. He needed to return and she wanted him to stay with her. She had lost a brother overseas and wasn't ready to repeat that pain. They did not leave on good terms but he decided to choose Hathaway House with her in mind. Gregory's therapist Shane, was tougher than anticipated and he (Gregory) had more trouble than he expected with the rehab. So despite the great food, Dennis in the kitchen happy to help, Stan the vet with all the animals, many of them therapy ones and great support all around, Gregory faltered at first. His team felt Meredith should back off from being his primary nurse for a short period which had positive and negative affects for both parties. This is a great heartwarming story that tugs on your heart strings and reminds you that life can sometimes hand you a lot of challenges. It's a quick read, 126 pages according to Amazon (others state it is longer), but packs a lot onto each page. The epilogue includes a look at the next book in the series that includes Heath who also chooses Hathaway House for much different reasons. Apparently Houston has always been home and he has a gut feeling he wants to follow. I'm looking forward to another adventure there.
A heartwarming story of personal challenge. Gregory thought he had already been there and done everything there was to do for his rehab, until he started working with the highly talented staff at Hathaway House. Gregorys main drive for applying at Hathaway House was seeing Meredith again and testing that spark they once had. Things tend to snowball when you dont expect it and Gregory found that it was very difficult to deal with the new pain in his body and Merediths lack of interest in him personally. I enjoyed Gregorys journey in discovering who he really is today verses who he was before the accident that changed his life. I find it satisfying that he found a way through therapy to make such drastic improvements. I also enjoyed Merediths method of dealing with Gregory as a patient and finding a way to develop her relationship with him in a personal way. A soulful test into awareness and acceptance with a very sweet HOA! I loved it!
Not only did Gregory know from his friends that Hathaway House would be the best place for his recovery, but also that it would give him an opportunity to perhaps reconnect with his lost love--Hathaway House staff member Melanie Anderson. Five years ago, after three weeks of dating, each knew the other was the one. However, each of them also had differing ideas of what the other was willing to do to keep the relationship going. Long story short, each immediately regretted the disagreement that split them up, but Gregory had already left for his mission and then was severely injured and out of commission for a couple of years. When Melanie sees his file as an incoming patient, to whom she is assigned as primary care nurse, she is shocked by the extent of his injuries. After several surgeries and physical therapy, Gregory believes he is ready for serious rehab. Confident of success at Hathaway House and in reuniting with Melanie, he quickly realizes the challenge he is facing. Not only is the physiotherapy there much more vigorous than hes been used to, but nurse staffing is short with two of Melanies colleagues off-site for a couple of weeks. She is working long shifts to meet the heavier workload. With neither time nor energy, its going to be a tough road for both of them. The Hathaway House series is an emotional journey with strong people facing big challenges. Always gives me strength to see what they accomplish and hope that I will be up to meeting my own challenges the way they do.

I can't say enough positive things about this series. This book was just as awesome as the others that have come before it. I love the fact that the series includes animals and veterans. I love how so much attention is paid to how the veterans in the books come out swinging even though they feel they are broken from their injuries. I love how the animals in the series also get so much attention paid to them. This book kept me engrossed from the start. I loved the main characters and of course I love the characters from the other books in the series that are included in the book. I love how each book is centered around one injured veteran and how they get so much attention. This book is definitely one you will want to read if you love romance, books about our veterans who have been injured serving our country and if you love animals. Love, love, love this series and look forward to the next book! I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
Another wonderful read from Hathaway house. Gregory walked away from the best think that had ever happened to him......Meredith, now a nurse at Hathaway but then she did the same thing. Now he is back but broken after being injured in the line of duty. With unsure feelings, anger and confusion the two of them have to navigate the past, the present and future to get through to the other side. Will they be able to clear the air???? Will there be a future??? A great all the feels and emotions read without the heat. Loved the characters and the storyline and cant wait for more.
Each Hathaway House story is so very different, each book just gets better. In this case, Gregory arrives at Hathaway House with a dual purpose. He strives to heal from his injuries but he is also seeks to find someone from his past who now works at Hathaway House. Reality is a shock to Gregory on several levels. It is awesome and humbling as the reader sees the healing process, a process that is complicated and far reaching. Bravo!!

Gregory wants to be at Hathaway House, but not just for the top notch treatment they provide. Meredith is a nurse there, and five years ago they had a brief relationship. They've both got strong personalities, and they are both stubborn. Knocking heads seems to be the only way they can communicate now. Dani and Shane keep them apart for a little over a week to help Gregory deal with his anger. Both suffer through the time apart, but they also learn a little about themselves. This book has all the feels.. Can be read as standalone, but reading them in order gives you the whole experience of Hathaway House. A fantastic book that will tug on your heartstrings, but leave you smiling. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
Thank you Dale Mayer for yet another heartwarming story in the Hathaway House series, this is book number seven but the series loses none of it's impetus. Gregory Parkin, a navy SEAL, is admitted to Hathaway House Rehab Centre after being badly injured in a bomb blast whilst on a mission, he thinks that he is past needing another rehab centre but he wanted to go to Hathaway House after discovering that Meredith Anderson was working there as a nurse. Meredith and Gregory had a fast, torrid relationship five years earlier which sadly ended when he refused to leave the navy and she couldn't live with the thought of him being in danger. Gregory quickly learned that his recovery wasn't as far advanced as he had thought and he was quickly brought to rock bottom before he could start to claw his way back up. Meredith was heartbroken watching him struggle but neither of them were willing to face the elephant in the room..... their previous relationship and their current feelings. This is another gentle romance highlighting the highs and lows of relationships and the need to communicate, it also highlights the sacrifices made by the brave military personnel. All the lovely characters from the previous books are there and although this is one of a series it can be read as a standalone , I can highly recommend it.
