About the Book:
On leave for Thanksgiving, the last thing marine lieutenant Talia Barnett expects to find is Liam Brodie waiting for her at the airport. He's had a starring role in her fantasies for the past two years, and although she'd love to make them a reality, she has a dark secret that prevents her from taking things further.
A former marine, Liam's specialty is planning tactical operations, and that's just what he plans to do to win Talia. The woman has kept him at arm's length for too long, and this time he's finally going to claim her—body and heart.
What begins as comfort quickly turns hot. When Liam shows Talia a hint of the dominant nature inside him, the submissive part of her flares to life. Though she desires him, she's going back on deployment and doesn't want to dump all her drama on him. Will he find a way to break through the protective walls around her heart and convince her they have a future that goes far beyond the bedroom?
This was a very quick and wonderful read for me. I found it easy to get sucked into Talia life and all the problems that swirl around in her brain and life. Croix has written Talia as such an independent and hardheaded character that it takes a lot for her to succumb to anyone’s help, especially Liam’s. And when he tries to help, she pushes him away. But when he makes her take his help, oh boy, that is when the story starts to get good! I will say that Croix has written Talia perfectly because she is always the one making hard decisions for her mother’s sake and doing time after time has slowly started to wear her down, but when Liam jumps in and starts to help, he takes the control away from her, which is exactly what she needs.
Liam made the book! He is everything a man should be; loving, family orientated, protective, strong, and confident. He knows what he wants and he plans to have it; poor Talia just doesn’t know that what he wants is herself.
Check this book out! The worst that can happen is that you will end up adding Liam to your list of multiple “husbands” like I did.
