It all started with a cupcake catastrophe. Vince saved Emma from boisterous children while she was carrying a tray of cupcakes. They hook up the night of Vince’s brother’s wedding. Emma has a wonderful night and sneaks out the next morning leaving no note or phone number.
Vince is a marine staff sergeant. He works with EOD’s (Explosive Ordnance Disposal). As best man for his brother he meets a hot woman and they hook up. She leaves the next morning and he has no way to contact her.
Moving forward six months and Vince is back in his hometown of Newport, Rhode Island. He is participating in some training at the Naval War College. He has been corresponding with a coordinator at the college and setting up some lectures at local schools. He has been texting and writing to Emma for a few weeks. He would love to see Emma again but with his work and career as a Marine it can’t be serious. He lost a good friend to an IED.
Emma comes from a Military family. Her father led a double life cheating on her mother. Emma joined the Navy and got married. Her husband cheated on her and got the other woman pregnant. There are trust issues and military men are not for her.
These two could be more perfect for each other yet they both have issues. Their chemistry is off the charts but can they work things out? Can these two wounded warriors heal each other?
I love books where the settings and characters come alive. You feel like you know them and the richness of the descriptions gives you great imagery. This is what you get with a Lisa Carlisle book. I feel like I could go to Newport, Rhode Island. I would love to see the Naval War College. I so want a tour of the Breakers, an architectural masterpiece built by the Vanderbilt’s. When she describes walking on the beach you can almost smell the salty ocean air.
This was a good book. I enjoyed it.
This is the story of Vince and Emma.
Emma, like me, was a veteran and a military wife. Unfortunately, her marriage was not a good one. Her first marriage was a very real downside of many military marriages. It has left her with some understandably huge trust issues and her mantra of never dating a military man again.
Vince is the middle brother of the DeMarchis family. He is a career Marine. His job working with explosives, and losing members of his team has made him not want any type of long term, meaningful relationships.
Emma and Vince have an explosively steamy one night stand, and Emma runs after the fact. Fast forward six months later and they are both in each other's orbit again. The attraction flies and the more they spend time together, the more their relationship grows beyond the physical.
I could empathize with both Emma and Vince. Ms. Carlise is able to accurately tell a believable story. Feelings are relatable and real and that's coming from someone who has experiences like both of her characters!
The one-nighter she never does couldn't be the man she's assigned to work with. But, he is. The gorgeous, hot, funny--military man. No way. He's delighted. She, not so much. It was that last one that made it impossible. She did not date military men.
Vince was for sure glad to have a reason to see her again. He planned to find out why she was so resistant to go out with him. They'd had a great time and were good together. Then trouble hit. Someone broke into her apartment. She wasn't hurt but things could have been different. He wasn't going to let that happen.
A reason to be together at work and now to protect her. Time for him to be with her and to convince her not all military men made bad partners.
Could they have a future? Two people who knew about military life. This brother is different but just as strong, hot, and more than any could want. There is steam, emotion, and a great story.
Falling for both brothers is a reader's dream. And just think, there is one more!
Emma wants nothing to do with service men, she had enough bad experiences with her father and her ex husband who got another girl pregnant, but a one night stand can't go wrong right? Months later she comes face to face with the Marine who she's been emailing and will be taking to speeches and who do you think is in her sites? Man oh man, he looks so much better in his uniform than he did that night in a tux
Does Vince want another go with the woman who has been haunting his dreams and will Emma give Vince a second chance?
