for FREE! Find it here:

Give a SEAL an inch, and he'll take your heart.

An Out of Uniform story.

Lieutenant Will Charleston has waited fifteen long years to show up as anything other than a one-pixel blip on Mackenzie Wade's romantic radar. If a powerful storm is what he needs to send her into his arms, he'll take it. Once the hot sex is over, though, she seems determined to kick him right back into the friend zone.

Not this time. This time, he's going to teach her the meaning of tenacious.

Mackenzie has always had feelings for Will, feelings she fights with all her strength. He's her best friend, her safety net. The one man who's not scared of her accursed psychic gift. No doubt he drives her wild in bed, but their night of passion was more than a mistake. It generated a tragic vision of the future, one that leaves her more confused--and afraid--than ever.

Problem is, Will knows her too well. Plus he's a SEAL to the bone. And they don't like to lose...

5.0 out of 5 stars Heat of the Storm December 11, 2009
By M. Nix
Format:Kindle Edition
Will Charleston has wanted Mackenzie Wade from the moment they met back in high school. Fifteen years later, Will is still relegated to the role of best friend; a role he's tired of playing. With a single kiss, Mackenzie changes everything. It's the breakthrough Will's been waiting for, and this time he's not taking no for an answer.

Mackenzie has come to rely on Will's friendship and no amount of lust is going to make her risk their friendship. Her psychic gift has brought more than one relationship to a crashing halt, and though Will swears he'd never leave her, Mackenzie still fears taking that chance. When a storm brings Will to her doorstep, Mackenzie finds she can't resist the heat between them. A night of passion leads to further complications when Mackenzie experiences a tragic vision of the future. Resolutely guarding her heart, Mackenzie tries to put Will back in the "friend zone." But Mackenzie is about to learn firsthand just how determined her sexy SEAL can be.

Love, lust, and longing fulfilled come together in the deliciously erotic Heat of the Storm. There is just something so appealing about a man willing to fight for his love. Perhaps that's why Will is one of, if not my absolute favorite hero of Elle Kennedy's. Having met Will in the previous Out of Uniform stories, I was anxious for his story, eager to see what kind of hero he would be. I loved discovering that his quiet exterior concealed a deep sensuality. He also grabbed my heart with his absolute certainty of his love for Mackenzie, his willingness to wait for her, and his knowing when he had to say "enough is enough." Though I wished I could snatch Will up myself, Ms. Kennedy made me understand why Mackenzie was so reticent to fully give her heart to Will.

2.0 out of 5 stars Feels like I feel back into Junior High School September 12, 2010
By Mrs. V

I read all the books in this series and although I didn't give them 5 stars, I did give them good reviews. This book had too many childish games in it. The characters annoyed me to know end. This book had so much potential but it fell flat for me. I think I'll stick with Lora Leigh for my Navy men or Barbara Elsborg for more substance.

This is the 3rd book of the Out of Uniform series by Elle Kennedy. I have really enjoyed this short series so far, but this one would probably be my least favorite. This is the story about Will and Mackenzie who have been friends for over 15 years and Will has been secretly in love with her all this time. Mac thinks of Will as her best friend, someone she can count on and that won't leave her. It is safer for her to keep him as a friend instead of becoming involved with him. One day, she kissed him and for Will, that was the day there was no turning back. He had to have her and had to convince her he was the man for her, that he loved her all this time and that he was tired of waiting around for her. Mac has a special ability, where she sees the future. She has seen images of Will and her and knew in her heart they would get involved and when they did, oh man, it would be hot! After their explosive night together, will sees images of Will falling from a helicopter and freaks out. She didn't want to continue the relationship because she feared if she did, she would lose him so she pushed him away.

This one is not my favorite from the series, probably because I thought the main characters were not that interesting, but the story was nice and short. It was nice to catch up with the other characters from the previous books, so that made it worth reading. Of course, I am a sucker for romance and liked the steamy scenes and a happily ever after. Can't wait to read the next book...

4.0 out of 5 stars Heat of the Storm October 7, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition
Mackenzie Wade was in a panic. She was having erotic dreams about someone she had no business dreaming about. Will Charleston is her best friend and the only person she could really count on. She couldn't go there with Will. Her second sight ability always caused men to run the other way. Her visions were very upsetting, and they could never handle the unexpected upset caused by them. They required her to maintain complete control over every aspect of her life. Now Will was demanding she release control or he was going to take it from her. How could she have sweaty animal sex with Will and still have her best friend the next morning?

There is incredible chemistry between Mac and Will. The visions added another element to the story, and we get a glimpse of the misery they bring to Mac's life. I always enjoy a story where there is alot of history between the main characters. Good short read!

1.0 out of 5 stars I hated Will October 4, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've been binge reading Elle Kennedy books lately but now I have to stop. The "hero" of this book was so creepy I'm not sure I can read any more of her books in a while.

You have loved a woman for 15 years and you know she's afraid of being abandonded. What do you do after having had sex with her? Well, Will chose to pretend he'd found a new woman the very next day. That's just cruel - and not how I envision love. I felt incredibly sorry for Mac, having this guy in her life. I had to skip pages because I couldn't read about them having sex - I wanted to shout at her to get away from the creep. Yikes!
