As a flight attendant, Rayne Jackson is used to cancellations, but she never dreamed her latest would lead to a whirlwind tour of London with a handsome stranger…or a life-altering night in his bed. One evening is all the enigmatic man can give her, and Rayne greedily takes it, despite suspecting it will never be enough.
Heading home after another extreme mission, Keane “Ghost” Bryson hadn’t planned to seduce someone during his layover, but Rayne is too sweet to resist. Being a Delta Force member means lying to protect his identity, which is unfortunate, considering Rayne seems made for Ghost, right down to the tattoo on her back. For the first time in his life, regret fills him as he slips away the following morning.
Both are shocked when, months later, they meet again—under the worst possible circumstances. Seems fate has given them a second chance…if they can survive the terrorist situation they’re in. If Rayne can forgive Ghost his lies. And if Ghost can trust Rayne to be strong enough to endure the secrets and uncertainty that come with loving a Delta Force soldier.
Nervous Nellie’s nervousness necessitates knowledge of the novel. In other words…spoilers. *BEWARE*
Nervous Nellie says…
This is a military romance of contemporary time. It has alpha military men that are over the top protective, uber loyal and more vocal about how they feel about their women than any man I’ve ever met. There are some pretty steamy scenes, some scenes to make a girl swoon and some scenes that are just plain sigh worthy. Oh, and then there is the adventure. Can’t forget about the adventure!
Here’s a bit of a warning. The beginning of the story is kind of lame. Once I read past the airport scene where Ghost and Rayne meet, then things got better. I guess the whole “one night stand” thing needs to be experienced to be believed. The day Ghost and Rayne spent in London was very romantic and the hero and heroine clicked right away. Once or twice the discussion between the hero and heroine felt odd. In some scenes the words and phrases that Ghost used felt weird. It was like the personality of the man didn’t match the words he spoke. I have no idea why I feel that way, I just do. Part of the feeling may come from the fact that I listened to this book as an audiobook instead of reading it. The experience of reading and listening can change the whole outlook of the book.
I really get into these romances because the heroines are strong and they do what needs to be done without hysteria or the whole fainting on the couch thing. These series are especially great because they are easy to follow and I don’t have to work too hard to keep track of the characters and the story. I can do other things while the story unfolds with the screen and projector in my mind. Some may argue that these series are the same story with different characters. I guess that’s their opinion. I can see that side, but I like these series featuring the special ops forces. They are fun and relaxing. They are feel good books and in this day in age, we all need feel good books with happy endings. Oh, and they are stand alone novels so they don’t have to be read in order, though it does complete the experience if they are.
