An Out of Uniform Story

After watching his teammates settle down one by one, Navy SEAL Jackson Ramsey is ready to say goodbye to the single life. He’s even met a woman who intrigues him, challenges him, and turns him right on—Mia Weldrick, the funny and beautiful gardener he can’t wait to get to know better.

Except Mia isn’t interested in dating him, which means it’s time for Jackson to unleash his Texas charm and do some serious wooing.

With a teenage brother to raise, two jobs, and, frankly, a complete disinterest in sex, Mia has no room in her busy life for a six-foot-five SEAL with a naughty streak a mile wide. But one hot kiss from Jackson has her imagining all the dirty ways she could fit him in.

It isn’t long before their no-string fling transforms into something more. As desire unearths emotions and deeply buried secrets, Mia has to decide whether to give love a chance to grow, or let it slip it away.

I read the short story A Little Bit Of Hot, which goes with the tenth installment of Out of Uniform.  It is a short little side book of all of Jackson’s failed, set-up dates and up to the time he meets Mia and realizes that out of all of these dates he has been on, she is the first woman to spark his interest. 

Like all Out of Uniform books, Jackson was sexy, alpha male and Mia was a strong, independent woman. Mia is raising her 16-year-old brother and working two jobs, she doesn’t have time for sleep let alone have time for a relationship but that doesn’t deter Jackson.  He uses his Texas charm to win her over and agree to just one date.  From there, a relationship slowly starts to build.  Both learning secrets of each other’s past gives an insight to why Mia is so hesitant to commit to Jackson and why Jackson is hides his bedroom behavior. 

Again, like all the other books, there is more to this plot then the smoldering scenes.  Both Jackson and Mia have problems that they need to confront, learn from, and grow from.  It is great to see two characters that can lean on each other to do so.
