I have never been to a place so tiny. Little Bear Island could fit in New York's armpit. Still a job is a job and, after surviving Afghanistan, what's twenty-four hours in podunk hell?
Providing private security for a celebrity wedding is nothing new...until I come face-to-face with Natalie O'Brien. The woman who chose someone else and kicked me to the curb six years ago. Time has done nothing to tame her. She's a red-headed beauty with a sharp tongue and nerves of steel who could seriously knock me off my game…
When my assistant bails, Natalie jumps at the chance to get off this tiny island. Now we're stuck criss-crossing the country in my SUV, with her tantalizing scent filling the cab and her smart mouth making me very...uncomfortable. Good thing the job will be over soon. So why does the thought of saying goodbye a second time make my heart stop?
Okay, I just read this book in one sitting, I guess that says a lot, right? Oh, don't get me wrong, there were parts where I was a bit annoyed and there were moments when I thought "Seriously?" but I'm still not sure whether it was the author's part or the characters' parts that upset me.
No matter what though, I was hooked and there were moments when I didn't want to turn the page or simply read on because I knew that I wouldn't like what would happen next. There were times when I was really really upset, other times when I was furious but there were also so many times when I just said and smiled goofily or grinned or whatever.
When Natalie and Jax meet again at a wedding on Natalie's tiny island sparks fly again even though both of them try very hard to resist the attraction. Six years ago, losing each other left both of them raw and hurting. Today...well, that's what we'll have to find out, right? And that's also what they have to find out when they end up on another road trip together.
After everything he's been through, Jax doesn't consider himself to be the right guy for Natalie anymore. Hard luck for him that Natalie doesn't exactly agree and somehow manages to get under his skin and claim his heart. Or maybe, she never gave his heart back anyway. But no matter what, they'll have to fight for their love and a chance at happiness.
I really enjoyed reading this book and will definitely check out other books by the author. There were parts that were a bit unbelievable like Jackson's amazing success at his job or the number of coincidences throughout the book that lead to the two of them getting back together but on the whole, the story was captivating and entertaining.
