I hadn’t read any books by this author so was totally unaware of this series, however that doesn’t matter because the story works well as a standalone novella, too.
When Navy SEAL, Trick Novak is leaving the apartment of his latest hook up – the name of whom he couldn’t remember when he woke up – he meets her room mate, Gaby Ellis. She points him towards his shoes and the door but he is instantly attracted to this hardworking kindergarten teacher. After such an introduction, knowing he’s slept with her room mate, how can he win her over? Will she give in to her anxieties or to her attraction?
OK, so I’m old fashioned but I actually liked that Gaby had the sense not to jump straight into bed with Trick, like her room mate had. It was good that things weren’t a case of ‘wham, bam, thank you, mam’ but took time to develop trust and knowledge of each other and their relationship had time to grow on firmer foundations because of this. Don’t think this means nothing happens between them, it certainly does! An action packed novella with great characters that I have no hesitation in recommending.
I’ll be looking out for more books by this author in future!
Thanks to the author, publishers and NetGalley, too, for letting me read this book in exchange for an honest review.
