About the Book:
She's always been off-limits...
Former Army Special Forces Sgt. Marco Vieri has never thought of Alyssa Scott as more than his best friend's little sister, but her return home changes that...and challenges him to keep his war-borne demons at bay. Marco's not the same person he was back when he protected Alyssa from her abusive father, and he's not about to let her see the mess he's become.
...but now she's all grown up.
When Alyssa takes a job at the bar where Marco works, her carefree smiles wreak havoc on his resolve to bury his feelings. How can he protect her when he can't stop thinking about her in his bed? But Alyssa's not looking for protection—not anymore. Now that she's back in his life, she’s determined to heal her forbidden hero, one touch at a time.
Yeah, I really enjoyed this book. There was just something about it that made me race through it in a day. Maybe it was because the character Aly was just so adorable and lovable that you just wanted to be her best friend. Or it could be (and it more than likely is) the character Marco. Oh, Marco! He was he bright, shiny star in this book for me, although sometimes I wanted to punch him. His passion and want for Aly blew my mind but somehow he is strong enough to keep her at arms length because he feels like it would be better for her if she doesn’t become entangled with him. However, the character Aly is so determined to be with him that nothing matters. She is willing to take on his dark past if she can at all help him see the light. She is willing to fight for him when he won’t do it for himself.
I believe the “longing” that the two characters had for each other made this book worth the time to read for me. You know in your mind that they are perfect for each other and you so badly want them to realize it so that your heart can flutter like theirs will the moment it happens.
