Tahoe. Badass. SEAL. Player. Powerful. Jerk. Available.
All words used to describe me for the past ten years. Wrapped up in the war, running and gunning constantly, has taken its toll on me. My next assignment is supposed to be a break, something to aid in taking the edge off; help open a new base in the miniscule, coastal, Florida town of Bronze Bay. A non-deployable position, I can work-out, decompress, and handle the mundane tasks of structuring a new SEAL command. Or, in other words, enjoy my free time with the tanned, toned, country women of the south.
Falling for a southern belle wasn’t supposed to happen. In fact, it’s more stressing than any challenge in my sordid past. Especially when she uttered the words, “I am a virgin.”
Someone cover me, I’m going in.
My first memory is in an airplane over the waters of the Gulf of Mexico. My daddy sitting beside me and my heart full of joy. When I was sixteen, I made my first solo flight over those exact same waters. My daddy owns and operates the little airport in Bronze Bay, so my eyes have been skyward for as long as I can remember. Things like men and college, never appealed to me. My days are spent waitressing in my Mama’s diner, counting down the hours until I can head to the airport.
Then the SEALs came and changed everything. Big, brutal, jerks, forcing themselves into our little slice of paradise. Demanding use of our airport. One man in particular, aiming to take more than I’m ready to give. He is beautiful. Magnetic. Strong. Convincing. For the first time in my life, I’m flying in a different, exhilarating way. Keeping it isn’t going to be easy when merely looking at the man makes me think of four words.
Foxtrot. Uniform. Charlie. Kilo.
Bless my heart, I’m in trouble.
Review by Susan:
Wow, this author has hit it out the park again! This is an amazing, delicious read that hooks you from the first page and kicks you out at the end wondering what you are going to do with your life now it’s all over. The author paints a beautiful picture of Bronze Bay, the reader feels as if they are there with the H/h, you can almost feel the sand between your toes as you read! The slow burn between Tahoe and Caroline is sweet and passion filled, I loved that we get to see their relationship blossom and bloom, it’s not without problems but that makes it more realistic. I loved the banter between the two, there’s some laugh out loud moments but also some low ones that made me cry. At times I was a bit frustrated with them as some of the decisions they made had me shouting at my kindle! The epilogue was perfect, a fabulous ending for a heartfelt, swoon worthy read. This is one of my favorite reads so far this year, my life is also more enriched now I know about horse play and mask squeeze!!! 5 Stars
