One of Shaw’s buddy’s is overseas so he fills in for his son’s lunch trip at school. When he meets the teacher Delia he notices how sexy she is.
Delia lost her husband several years ago and still finds it hard to talk about. She doesn’t want to have anything to do with the Army or anyone who takes risks.
What I liked most was the friendship that started before the romance. It was nice to see the two get to know each other. There are some funny situations and heart warming ones as well.
Tawdra knows how to tell a story that keeps the reader wanting more and more.
Shaw has always been a player, until he encounters Delia. There's something about her that makes him want to give all that up, and look at something permanent.
On a personal level, several things made me smile: Delia's mention of a date taking her to a super heroes movie and not knowing the difference between DC and Marvel. (My brother and my son used to frequently argue over which was better.) Delia applying an Ironman band-aid to one of her students and using the same argument that Shaw had used on her, about not giving up just because of one bad experience.
And, yes, there is steam! But there's a buildup to it; a "getting to know you," before hitting the silk. Despite this being a shorter story, we get a good amount of background and opportunity to get to know the characters (and them getting to know each other) before the steamy scene happens.
Shaw is an army captain who loves the danger lifestyle he’s been offered. Jumping out of helicopters? That’s a goal of his. Because of this, he knows that his army career pretty much rules out a serious relationship. When he takes a trip to eat lunch as a surrogate father for his buddy’s kid, meeting Delia Rollins changes everything. The spark is there instantly, no matter how much she wants to deny it.
Delia knows that Shaw breaks all her rules. She’s been determined to avoid the dangerous ones ever since her first husband was killed in action. Somehow, though, Shaw wiggles his way into becoming her trainer. What starts as a friendship quickly becomes so much more. As long as they can both adjust to this budding relationship, they are so very well suited. These HEAs are the best!
The first person we meet in the book introduces himself in the following manner, 'The body that rushed at me was like a heat-seeking missile. ' but it turns out to be a little kid, not one of our lovers. I thought it was an excellent description that warranted recognition for the author who uses words cleverly to keep a reader on the edge of her seat. Kandle uses language in a manner that shows she's a warm, understanding, loving person who's experienced life and respects what she's learned. It's inherent in her writing.
I like the way she inserts information about the military. That writing also shows she knows what she's talking about.
I love the books in this series and enjoyed meeting people from previous books in this book.
I received an ARC and am providing an unbiased review.
