While helping his sister tie up her final affairs, Navy SEAL Nick Dunn gets more than he bargained for when a deathbed promise turns into a hot affair with his sister’s best friend in this emotionally gripping contemporary romance.
When Devon Brandeburg made that death bed promise she expected to have to put up with Nick’s testosterone-stuffed ego and the reader can’t help but get caught up in the story as they both get taken by surprise with just how much chemistry sizzles between them and Nick is soon teaching Devon all about womanhood with some scorching sex scenes. The strong compelling characters grab the reader’s attention while the emotional turbulence adds depth and captures the heart and I should warn you that there is some tearjerker moments but the author balances the emotional, the suspense and the romance in a such way that the readers enjoy the story without tender feeling being trampled on.
The fast paced, smooth flowing plot builds expectation throughout as it becomes obvious that there is something going on with his sister’s property which leads to some dangerous excitement that gets the adrenaline pumping as things spiral out of control and of course there is all the sexy hotness that creates some searing excitement whenever SEAL Team 3 gets together. The well written scenes and details make sure that the reader becomes completely absorbed in the story with some humor spaced throughout the story to lighten the story up a bit.
I can’t get enough of the SEAL Brotherhood as every story is adventure laced with strong emotion, passion and intrigue while the author also ensures that there is never a dull moment and Nick and Devon’s story fits right in especially as they have a kind of push/pull relationship that has sparks flying in every direction.
Special Operator Nick Dunn gets the call he has been dreading since before his last deployment. His sister is in her final stages of cancer. He and his Team 3 roommate drive up to Sonoma County from Coronado to help her shut down her failing nursery business and tie up her final affairs.
Nick only vaguely remembers Devon Brandeburg, his sister’s best friend, but boy has she grown up. Last time he saw her was five years ago when he graduated BUD/s and completed SEAL qualification to obtain his Trident. Sparks begin to fly between the two of them, but not in the normal way for Nick. The woman wants nothing to do with him.
Devon Brandeburg has created a small financial fortune through her success in real estate. Her career is her main focus, but a closely guarded secret is her total lack of experience with men. After all, who needs them? Especially when their testosterone-stuffed egos suck all the air out of the room, like Nick’s does.
Nick’s sister requires two things of the both of them as her dying wish. 1. Nick and Devon must find a buyer for the nursery together, not allowing to her nasty winery owner neighbor next door to get his hands on her piece of heaven. 2. They date at least five times before she passes on.
What starts as a deathbed promise turns out to be a hot affair neither one expected. Nick becomes Devon’s teacher in her journey to womanhood. As she comes alive in his arms, the student brings the teacher something he’s never allowed himself to want, and now knows he needs.
As his sister's life is ending a sinister plot to take over her property comes alive. Nick finds out both the women he holds most dear to him are in jeopardy. He's too late to save one of them, but will he be able to save the other?
