Bad boy Rory Kennedy was raised in foster care, bouncing in and out of trouble along the way. He finds his true family and real brothers as a Navy SEAL, one of the Navy’s elite warriors. When his BUD/S instructor barked the SEAL’s Motto: Only Easy Day Was Yesterday, he knew he had found home. Megan Palmer works in a bookstore and finds her passion in life through reading steamy romance novels. Her brief affair with a man she later found out was married has left her damaged, until she meets the handsome SEAL, who stands ready to open her world and give her things she’s only dreamed. On a skiing trip, Rory suffers a possible career-ending injury and also comes face to face with a past he never knew of, and a family who had abandoned him. His relationship with Megan is tested to the breaking point as Rory wades through the dark waters of recovery and whether or not he can live without the life he loves. A home-grown terrorist cell forces his hand and he discovers his true purpose.
Whatever she’d bottled up had come loose. Her appetite met her need, which should have scared him. But for the first time, he wanted her to need him. He could fill he up. She was starving for it. And so was he. She was sleeping, and he fell into her rhythm, inhaling when she did, exhaling also in tandem, feeling her soft sex crowning his thigh. He thought of all the lovely things he wanted to say to her, but knew he shouldn’t. He knew the speaking part would mess up what he now felt, something he rarely felt. Happiness. He tried to breathe without making a sound, hoping that this time together, which was as precious to him as the love making part, was prolonged for as long as possible. She was fire and ice. The salt and the caramel. She tucked inside the hard exterior of his soul and shivered, rested there under his protection. He must have twitched or done something, because she startled and rose up quickly, rolling to the side and covering herself up. He could almost feel her heavy thoughts tossing about the room as he viewed her light pink spine glowing in the near moonlight as she sat on the edge of the bed away from him. An inch of her butt crack was in shadow, but the alabaster surface of her skin was flawless and made her look like a statue. He inhaled without a sound, and let his index finger trace down the middle of her back, traveling over the ridges of her vertebra. She stiffened at first, then rolled her head to the side and killed him with the blue gaze that showed him she was still hungry. “Come here, Megan,” he said, worried he’d been a little too loud. She touched her shoulder with her ear in a shy move that belied her real feelings for him. He could see it in the coral shaded corners of her lips, how they quirked up at the ends.
PERSONAL REVIEW ——
***** 5 Out Of 5 Stars
Sharon Hamilton has done it again. She has provided us with another super, sexy, and suspenseful hot SEAL romance.
Bad Boy, Rory has found his home and place in the SEALs after being shuffled from one foster family to the next. Rory is ready for a good time and he sets his sites on Megan Palmer, the bookworm, who finds her fantasy man in the steamy romances she reads. Rory is ready and willing to show Megan there is a world beyond her romance novels.
Rory is involved in an accident that could possibly ruin his career as a Seal, but because of his accident he may have found a family he never knew he had. But he is also faced with a “home grown” terrorist who considers himself “Warrior for the Prophet” and believes it his mission to kill people in the US and the more blood he can shed, the cleaner his soul will be. He definitely feels Megan and Rory needed killing to avenge his wife and family. Will Rory and Megan find their ever after or are they doomed before they ever start? This was a great read and I highly recommend it to those who like a story with some steamy chemistry and suspense.
This is a story you want won’t to put down. Kudos to Ms. Hamilton for a another great story of the “bad boys” of SEAL Team 3. Look forward to the next book in the series.
