Unfortunately, Andi is his best friend’s little sister. Translation? Hands off, soldier! But that’s a damn hard thing to do. Because this sexy, utterly absorbing woman is the only one he wants—the one he’s always wanted. How can he possibly resist her when they’re sharing hotel rooms…and their bodies?
Battle zones are nothing compared to this. Colton’s heart is directly in the line of fire. So what else can he do but launch a counterattack…a purely physical one? Because if you can’t beat ’em…
Colton grew up next door to Andi and her brother Rion and now serves in the army with Rion. When Rion’s leave to give his sister away at her wedding falls through, he turns to Colton to take his place. Andi is the only woman Colton has loved. He’s not too happy about giving her away to another man, so when he sees her trying to escape out of a bathroom window at the church, he’s more than happy to serve as her get-away-driver!
Andi comes to the conclusion, just minutes before walking down the aisle, that she doesn’t love her fiancee, Blanton, and can’t possibly envision a life with him. She does the only thing she can think of – escape. Who better to escape with than the man she has decided she actually loves?
This is a great little book! The characters are well crafted! Colton is desperate to do what’s honorable, but Andi keeps pushing him further than he can resist. The families that these two come from are well developed, and add both humor as well as depth to the story. The whole host of seconday characters are amazing. They have the reader, laughing, cheering, shedding a tear, and finally sighing in delight.
I’ve often said that I enjoy getting my subscription to Blaze every month. They are short, spicy little stories that pop in my purse and keep me entertained for a few hours. They range from good to outstanding, but at the price, they serve as great mind candy!
This book serves as my entry for the Men In Uniform challenge for this month.
