He wants just one night…
After growing up with an abusive, alcoholic father, Army Special Forces Sgt. Brady Scott vowed never to marry or have kids. Sent stateside to get his head on straight—and his anger in check—Brady’s looking for a distraction. He finds it in his beautiful new neighbor’s one-night-only offer for hot sex, but her ability to make him forget is addictive. Suddenly, Brady’s not so sure he can stay away.
…what they need is each other.
Orphaned as a child, community center director Joss Daniels swore she’d never put herself in a position to be left behind again, but she can’t deny herself one sizzling night with the sexy soldier who makes her laugh and kisses her senseless. When Joss discovers she’s pregnant, Brady’s rejection leaves her feeling abandoned. Now, they must overcome their fears before they lose the love and security they’ve found in each other, but can they let go of the past to create a future together?
I really loved Kaye’s Forbidden Hero and when I found that she was coming out with a companion piece, I was ecstatic! The day that it was available, I bought it and started reading it. And oh my!....BRILLIANT!
There is nothing about Brady that I did not love (okay, maybe the fact that he pushes people away but I could work on that.) The moment when he first saw Joss and immediately knew that he had to have her. All their encounters together were perfect; the right amount of passion, possessiveness, banter, anger, excitement, openness, and love.
Joss was also a wonderful character. I love how Kaye wrote her different than most women in a romantic story. She had pink highlights, tattoos, and was such a strong woman. Even though she kept coming back to Brady, when enough was enough, she held her ground (read the book and you will know what I am talking about.)
Such a wonderful, moving story. I was so excited to begin it and was sad to see the last page come so quickly.
