Book Whisperer's Rating:
Before there were bikers, or fighters, or even good old-fashioned jerks, there were Navy SEALs. They put the bad in badass because, well…it’s their job.
Navy SEAL Maverick Hart has everything. Women want him. Grown men idolize him. Little boys want to grow up and be like him. The job, the glory—it’s all his. Not because it’s handed to him…because he works hard for it. The second his sights lock on something, he owns it—or destroys it. Unfortunately he does both at the same time.
Windsor Forbes only takes calculated risks in her profession and in her personal life. After being left at the altar by the only person she’s ever loved, the very last thing she’s looking for is a relationship—especially the insane brand an arrogant Navy SEAL is offering. Hesitant, yet trusting to a fault, she gives in.
She knew she shouldn’t take the chance, especially a second time, but love is irrational and their love is perfect, infallible. Or so she thought…
The downfall to having everything is you have that much more to lose. A man like Maverick can’t have it all without something slipping out of grasp.
Crazy people perish for love.
Good people live for it.
Love doesn’t die. No matter how many bullets you put in it.
When I first started reading this book, I remember having a conversation with Jackie saying, “I am not for sure if I am going to like this book or not and that makes me sad. The first chapter gave away the biggest part of the story…how could he do that to her?!” Now, after finishing the book, I can gladly say that I am so happy that I continued reading because I would have missed out on an amazing story.
Yes, a bomb is dropped at the very beginning and really, you aren’t even introduced to the characters before it explodes, but I can guarantee that there are more bombs blowing up in this book that will rock your reader world than the one in the beginning.
The best way to explain Maverick and Windsor is that they are the perfect couple with a screwed up past and a rocky future. Windsor can’t say “I love you” and Maverick can’t trust. These are the things that hinder them from truly committing and bring forth their rocky future.
I don’t want to say too much but I will say that I found myself loving Maverick and Windsor individually when they were a couple but when they fall apart, I couldn’t stand them (in a good way.) They were absolute poison to each other apart and the cure for both when they were together. It’s amazing how Robinson could write them that way.
And Morganna and Stone…*heart breaks*
