Description: Staff Sergeant Brett Black has a bad feeling that something is going to go terribly wrong. And as a Recon Marine, he pays attention to his gut. Only nothing can prepare him for what he encounters when he arrives at home from the base. His wife is leaving him, and there is nothing he can do about it.
Abandoned with a kid, the super alpha-male has to become domesticated quickly or find a willing substitute to help him with his son. Only the substitute he finds is no substitution.
Courtney Lawless is a true wild card. The budding librarian loves the classics and carries herself like a lady by day. But she also is full of life and surfs the waves of the Atlantic Ocean by night. Since her parents won’t
Review: I would have had this review done a while back but I had to stop a few times and take a cold shower. This book is just that hot. From the smoking hot cover til “The End”, it was a pleasure to watch Courtney and Brett fall in love.
Poor Brett just can’t catch a break. With all the crap this man has been through, he would be justified to rock in a padded room and draw his pennies. But, he draws on his strength as a Marine to take care of business. I almost cried when he broke down and prayed for help and before he could get off his knees, Courtney was committing to enter his life.
Courtney is the daughter of a career military man. She has never dated a Marine, but she been burnt by enough servicemen, to know that she is not cut out to be a military wife. But from the moment these two connect all the rules change. From the first kiss, Courtney’s loving care begins to heal places that Brett didn’t even realize were broken.
I loved watching Brett try not to fall in love. He had so many good reasons not to touch Courtney. Not the least being that her father is his senior commanding officer. And Courtney didn’t have to do anything special. All she did was take care of this wounded soul and his child and the Marine lost the battle he had no way of ever winning.
