Or will she leave before he can stop a killer, taking his heart with her.
The song that came to my mind while reading this book was an old Bon Jovi song "Blaze of Glory". I could see some of the scene being acted out with that song being played in the background.
David really made this one action packed little novella that I could not put down. She has put everything you could ask for in just 108 pages. Drug cartel, kidnapping, hero's, past lovers, life threatening situations, not to mention HOT marines. I really liked this book but I would have loved it to have been a full length novel, i can just imagine all the built up angst and raw hunger between these two, yum!
I give this book 4 stars!
