He swears he's changed his ways but she's nearing the end of her self-imposed year end man hiatus. Ballet teacher Ellie Bell has a horrible track record with men. Army soldier Charlie Johansson a/k/a Big Game Hunter has an excellent record - of one night stands. Can he overcome his reputation to win the woman of his dreams?
This was a cute quick read. Ellie supposedly had a horrible track record with men, but there were no 'war stories' shared. She begins a pen pal email relationship with Charlie after her brother is injured in combat. Charlie comes home on leave, but is introduced to Ellie as Hunter, and not by his given name. Charlie was very charming and won me over. He seemed to have honestly changed his views on women and relationships after Ellie’s brother was injured. I like that they didn't rush their relationship - mostly due to her hiatus; they just let things gradually develop - mostly due to his fear of discovery. Even though the characters were lively and vibrant, I didn't get overly attached to any of them.
She fell for the nice guy, but will she fall for the real guy?
Ex-ballerina Ellie Bell has twenty-four days left until her self-imposed man-less year is up. No more falling for the wrong kind of guy—charming, sexy, bad. Why can’t she find someone sweet like Charlie Johansson, her soldier pen pal? His e-mails meant the world to her, and she can’t stop thinking about him…until she meets Hunter, whose muscles and cocky smile threaten to have her relapsing.
Before Charlie “Big Game Hunter” Johansson’s last tour of duty, he’d gone through women like crazy. But after connecting on a real, emotional level via letters with his best friend’s sister, Charlie’s ready for a relationship—with Ellie Bell. But then her brother introduces him as Hunter. Proving he’s no longer a player by becoming Ellie’s dance partner for an Army benefit seems like it could convince both siblings he’s changed, but the harder he falls for Ellie, the harder it is to come clean. Can he convince her to fall for the real him before it’s too late?
