This book is written according to a proven and tested recipe but it's one of those dishes you never get tired of.
We don't get to delve too deeply into the characters' lives. I can't say I felt a strong connection to either character. Jack's issues are too easily resolved and there is a quick HEA wrap up.
People looking for a quick beach read will enjoy this book. My issue is that Anne Calhoun is an incredibly talented writer who hasn't yet got the readership base she deserves. Seeing her write a more formulaic story is disappointing. Try her earliest novels (Liberating Lacey, Uncommon Pleasure) and then her more complex ones like Breath on Embers and The List.
So many lickable things. So. Many. I loved Jack. He's all alpha male and full of sexy charm! He's also dealing with some PTSD from his days as a SEAL and is in therapy. A very interesting combo for the hero seeing both sides of him and dealing with his body/mind not always being rock solid like he's used to.
She's a librarian!!! I really enjoyed Emily. I loved seeing her taking some risks and grabbing control of her life. Doing all those things she's wanted to do but not hadn't been allowed to do during her marriage. She's fun and sexy and sweet.
These two were seriously hot. They have a delicious zing between them from their very first meet at her library and they don't waste much time hitting the sheets or, well, counter in this case. lol Hot, heavy and explosive. These two don't hold anything back and good lord it was fabulous. Dirty and passionate. Gah yes! Just the right amount of curl your toes goodness.
It was a good time with these two. The sexy bits...obviously. Because seriously NOMS! But everything else too. Bike shopping, riding, maybe jumping out of a perfectly good plane. Their adventures together were fun and endearing.
Even though there was a lot of heat and light hearted moments there was a lot of depth to these two and I liked that there were some serious elements included as well--her with her damaged confidence and trust and him dealing with his PTSD. I thought his being in therapy was an amazing thing to add into the storyline. There's such a stigma on getting help and I loved that it was included. It was nice to see that other side to the fun loving sexy elements.
I had two kinda sorta issues. I didn't love some added in drama towards the end and thought the L word was brandied about way too soon but I still liked the romance side of things so...okay. And then there was the editing. It could very well have been fixed before final copy but I didn't hear back from the publisher so I'm judging based on what I read and there were some consistency things that were very distracting. Him parking the car then taking off his helmet and swinging his leg over his bike. Ems. Yeah.
Overall, hot damn and can I have another, please? lol I'm loving this novella series from Calhoun.
Jack Powell left the Navy SEALs because he was suffering from night terrors and hand tremors. He was aware that it could be PTSD even if he didn't show the "typical" symptoms of it. He was seeing a therapist and attending psychology classes and writing a thesis on PTSD. He wanted to understand it fully and figure out how to beat it. He knows he can't be a SEAL anymore but he plans to go into the private sector and get a job that will take him to Turkey.
Erin Kent is picking up the pieces after her divorce she has made a list of things she has always wanted to do but her ex always talked her out of it and made promises he never kept. Even now a year after the divorce she still hears his voice in her head whenever she begins to doubt herself. In a plan to extinguish him from her head she has been going down her list. She went to classes and got her license for riding a motorcycle all she needs now is the motorcycle. But the salesman is trying to talk her out of the Ducati (LOVE DUCATI) and on to a smaller Honda Rebel. Lucky for Erin that Jack just happen to be there to pick up a part and helped her get it through the sale man's thick skull that she wanted the Duc.
Erin previously turned down Jack for a date because she wasn't ready to start dating again, but that didn't stop her from taking him home and sleeping with him. From there they start a precarious sexual relationship. They both know that the relationship wont last forever Erin is still trying to be her own person and Jack is preparing to move out of the country. But sure enough thy both fell in love but can Erin get over her fears enough to move forward with Jack in a life together.
Overall this was a very smokin' hot book, very hot. I liked the characters well enough and the sex in the library was pretty good.
