She fell for the nice guy, but will she fall for the real guy?

Ex-ballerina Ellie Bell has twenty-four days left until her self-imposed man-less year is up. No more falling for the wrong kind of guy—charming, sexy, bad. Why can’t she find someone sweet like Charlie Johansson, her soldier pen pal? His e-mails meant the world to her, and she can’t stop thinking about him…until she meets Hunter, whose muscles and cocky smile threaten to have her relapsing.

Before Charlie “Big Game Hunter” Johansson’s last tour of duty, he’d gone through women like crazy. But after connecting on a real, emotional level via letters with his best friend’s sister, Charlie’s ready for a relationship—with Ellie Bell. But then her brother introduces him as Hunter. Proving he’s no longer a player by becoming Ellie’s dance partner for an Army benefit seems like it could convince both siblings he’s changed, but the harder he falls for Ellie, the harder it is to come clean. Can he convince her to fall for the real him before it’s too late?

After putting herself on a 365-day retreat from men, Ellie is only interested in being a friend to Hunter when her brother introduces him.  What Ellie doesn’t know is that Hunter is actually Charlie, the man that she has been corresponding with since her brother was hurt in a mission, and the one that she has been having feelings for.  Knowing the stories that Ellie’s brother has told her about Hunter and his womanizing ways, Ellie knows for sure to stay away from him but find herself with a flicker of feelings.

This was such a cozy romantic story that can warm you from the inside out.  Ellie and Hunter/Charlie’s sexual tension was off the chart but surprisingly to me, there were no sex scenes.  London wrote the scenes up to the very cusp of Ellie and Hunter/Charlie moments but left it at a high for the readers to use their imagination.  It didn’t matter though; their steamy moments spoke for themselves.
