I really liked Denton and Hannah's characters as they were actually both vulnerable in different ways and could both learn from each other, it was also good that Brock and Cole make appearances so we could see how they were going too. We also get to know some of the others that work at the Hathaway House so we continue to slowly build up who the staff are. There were some parts that seem to have got drooped part way through the book like the cat who could become a therapy cat as well as Denton going from knowing no one for a job to having a friend who really wants him to work for him. I would love it if the books were a bit longer in this series so you could see things build up a bit more or see what happens in the weeks after they finally get together. In saying that these are the perfect books when you want a sweet and heartwarming read and don't have loads of time to read.

Denton by Dale Mayer Hathaway House Series Book Four Denton Hamilton has finally arrived at Hathaway House and he couldn't be more grateful. Someone has funded his way and he's not too proud to accept it. But he'll do the best he can to be worthy of that donor. With his friends Brock and Cole, he hopes to move forward. Hannah has been working at Hathaway for a year now. She realizes, as she watches Denton with his friends, that she doesn't have any real friends. If something happened to her...she'd have no one to care. Denton and Hannah are opposites but each has a quality the other person needs to learn. Loving this series.

This is the fourth book in the series. I love this series because the books hit you right in the heart and this one was no different. When I finished this book it left me feeling good and a smile on my face. It has an easy flow that instantly capture your attention. Denton is trying regain as much normal as he can after what he has been through and the Hathaway House is hope to achieving that. My heart goes out to Hannah because I can sympathize with her being a loner. That's me a lot of the time, but I love how far she comes in this book. What I also love about this series are the animals that are also recovering at the Hathaway House. They bring a lot of hope for the humans the are recovering. I would definitely recommend this one. I like the set up for the next book.

Denton is glad to be able to get to Hathway House. He has friends there that have improved tremendously from the therapy there. Two of his buddies have already found mates and are looking forward to moving on with their lives and of course, Denton wonders where that leaves him. Will they still be best friends? Will he too find someone to partner with? Will his healing experiences be as significant as theirs. So many questions and of course I will not do a spoiler. You will just need to read the book and it is great. I have yet to read a book by Dale Mayers I have not loved. She has not disappointed me ever. Thanks, Dale. Great job once again.

Denton and Hannah are becoming friends, which is easy for one but not the other. Hannah isn't good at making friends, after losing a friend when she was very young. Denton makes friends easily, and Hannah wonders if he relies too heavily on his friends. Denton and Hannah both work on trying to do the opposite, which made me a little nervous. I was afraid they were going to sabotage their new friendship with their little experiment. Hathaway House.. a place of healing bodies, hearts, and souls. I love this series!

Hathaway House is a place of healing. For Denton it is a place for him to grow, to regain lost physical abilities and put many issues in perspective. It is there that he meets Hannah and realizes that perception vary with the beholder. It is as much about emotional healing as it is physical healing and many of the wounds happened before the actual injuries he received as a Navy SEAL. This is book 4 of the Hathaway House series and each book gets that much better. Well done, Dale Mayer. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Fantastic! This new series is fabulous! I believe Denton is the best one yet, it touches people at a more personal level as it centers around being lonely and having friendships. Loneliness is very real and can have debilitating aspects one wouldn’t think of. I feel that this author nailed it describing Hannah’s life and her inability to interact on a deeper level with those around her. It’s difficult to sync up with people of like minds and personalities if you work with the same people every day and don’t socialize after hours. Sometimes it takes the right circumstances and the right timing to meet that someone who brings out a different side to your personality so that you are viewing your life in a whole different perspective. I really enjoyed how Hannah and Denton were able to talk to each other openly about their differences and outlook on their upbringing, all without negative judgment or defensiveness. I enjoyed Denton’s natural, easy going, friendliness to anyone he comes into contact with, not all people have that ability. Hannah’s is a more reserved personality which finds her on the outside looking in more often than not. I found it fun and interesting how they issue a “friend” challenge to each other to prove a friendly point, so to speak. This is a very gut-wrenching story with such a multi-faceted topic, combined with the care and support of a rehab facility, animals and friends. I found it very introspective, heartwarming and easy to relate to. I loved it!

A heartwarming read about Denton, who ends up at Hathaway House to continue recovering from his injuries and to join his friends who have found success and love while there. He meets Hannah who works there and the two hit it off becoming friends but Hannah struggles to make friends and Denton has plenty. When the two decide to explore different avenues when it comes to friends...will the two become more. A sweet read that I enjoyed and I liked that there was no over the top drama. I also liked that Denton wasn’t hard headed and valued the opportunity to be there and how Hannah opens up herself to more. I also liked that there were no jealousies, no miscommunication that wasn’t cleared up promptly and w/o drama. I’m enjoying these sweet reads where the tough SEAL men learn to love and work through any issues they may have. *I voluntarily read an advanced copy and expressed my honest opinion*

I started this book expecting to like it. I have to say I absolutely loved it. It explores friendships and how your life is affected by whether or not you have friends. It also shows how having support of friends and those around you can help with making your life different from those who do not have the support of family and friends. This book had me sitting back and thinking about my life and had me comparing myself to both of the main characters. I loved the way the book had so many of the characters from previous books included in the book, yet centered around the two main characters. I really look forward to where the next book takes us and cannot wait to read more in this series! I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Book 4 at the Hathaway House is Dentons and Hannahs story. **These contemporary stories are G rated ** This can be read as a stand alone with no problem. This one is more a self evaluation and relationship book. Questions a wounded, Seal with PTSD, Denton, has based on his life. The questions Hannah the Administrative Asst has on her life, friendships (or lack there of) . They each see the opposite of themselves in each other. As they get to know each other and feelings change, there are more questions, searching and a HEA. This book to me underscores the feeling of a small village that the Hathaway House represents with the employees, the patients (two and 4 legged) as they struggle, some working to do the right thing for others, some struggling to do right by themselves. I truly hope there is a place like this in the world for our wounded. Thank you for the arc. All thoughts and opinions are my own and were unsolicited.

Hathaway House seems like the perfect place if you need to recuperate from serious injuries and Denton is very relieved when he manages to get one of the very sort after places. He finds Hannah, who is assistant to Dani the part owner and manager, and is instantly attracted to her. How their relationship develops is written with great skill and empathy and makes for a lovely book and one I thoroughly enjoyed.

Another fabulous read from this series. These guys come to Hathaway House to recover from not just their injuries but all the emotions connected to whatever happened and how they feel about those injuries and how it affects the rest of their lives. Will they be able to get strong enough to do a job of some kind? will they ever find the love and support of someone special even if they have setbacks? this place deals with the whole range, the physical, the mental and the diet. This would be a place that if real would be in massive demand. As well as all that there's the animals, some just as injured as the human patients, all need love just as much as the treatments. Seeing this is also a big boost to both, the cuddles really help. This story is about all that but its also about friendship, having or not having, learning not to abuse that precious commodity, finding equal balance between taking and giving support and love. Of course there is also romance, even if it is in the usual sense of the word. I am loving this series, it is different and opened my eyes to things I hadn't really thought about as to how injuries affect such strong alpha males used to being the best and strongest they can possibly be, the struggle back just to get to a certain level of fitness to be able to cope back in society and find a career very different to that they were doing. Amazingly intense but inspiring read.

Hathaway House is a place that you want to visit again and again, Although this is a standalone story a lot is to be gained from reading the previous books. Hathaway House is a unique place where military veterans with life changing injuries come to regain their lives, the treatment is holistic and is administered by teams of medics, physios, psychologists etc who work together to enhance the healing process. Denton has major injuries but he knows that waiting for him at Hathaway House are his two best friends who are already on their way to recovery. Brock and Cole have both met and fallen in love with girls who work at the centre and Denton was truly happy for them but he did worry that this would change the dynamics of their friendship. Denton met Hanna, an administrative assistant, and they became special friends, during one of their chats Hannah plants the seed that he may be relying too much on Brock and Cole and he begins to worry that he may not be capable of standing on his own two feet without the help of his friends who have always been there for support. Hannah, on the other hand has difficulty making friends and they set out to help each other.This could go pear shaped when Hannah realises to her dismay that Denton is distancing himself from his friends and this isn't what she wanted. This is a very heartwarming story, it shows the love and respect that the military teams have for one another and the selfless devotion of the Hathaway House staff. There is gentle romance but no sex and violence, just a cosy, warm glow, another triumph for Dale Mayer. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Donors have paid for Denton's medical rehab costs at Hathaway House and he is most grateful and ready to receive their help. He is especially excited about seeing two of his friends, Brock and Cole, who are recovering there. He has been cautioned about pushing to hard and suffering a setback as Cole had done. Denton is looking forward to bettering his physical and mental health at this new facility. He is delighted to see his two friends, however there has been a change in them as they have found love as well as recovery at Hathaway house and Denton is reluctant to interfere in any way with their happiness. He meets Hannah who is the admin assistant and his story of life at the new place adds more challenge. Hannah is a loner who has difficulty making friends, a bright and interesting lady, mildly dyslexic, adapt at helping others but not always able to help herself. So I found this story much about friendship, how it works and how your past and personality play a big part in developing such a relationship. How making and keeping friends comes so easily and naturally to some but not to others. Of course there is Stan who runs the vet clinic and plays a role in all these stories. The animals, some with prosthetic limbs and other problems, contribute to the healing of people as well as find themselves a home. Some of the descriptions (though well done) of the injuries and challenges may cause some discomfort, however, the love, loyalty and compassion will more than make up for it.
