My Review

You always want what you can’t have…

She’s always been off-limits…

Former Army Special Forces Sgt. Marco Vieri has never thought of Alyssa Scott as more than his best friend’s little sister, but her return home changes that…and challenges him to keep his war-borne demons at bay. Marco’s not the same person he was back when he protected Alyssa from her abusive father, and he’s not about to let her see the mess he’s become.

…but now she’s all grown up.
When Alyssa takes a job at the bar where Marco works, her carefree smiles wreak havoc on his resolve to bury his feelings. How can he protect her when he can’t stop thinking about her in his bed? But Alyssa’s not looking for protection–not anymore. Now that she’s back in his life, she’s determined to heal her forbidden hero, one touch at a time…

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.

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?

A by-the-book captain with a West Point background, Evan Loehr refuses to mix business with pleasure—except for an unguarded instance years ago when he succumbed to the deep sensuality of redheaded beauty Claire Montoya.

Strong, gutsy, and loyal, Captain Claire Montoya has worked hard to achieve her high military rank. In Evan Loehr, Claire sees a spoiled commander who puts the rules before everything else—including his people. Army orders force them together and Claire soon discovers that there is more to Evan than meets the eye. He too has dark secrets and deep longings. For all their differences, Evan and Claire share two crucial passions: their country and each other.

13 Thoughts on “Men & Women of the Military Giveaway Hop

  1. Aloha! Thanks for supporting the Wounded Warrior Project! I am lucky to live next to and surrounded by heroes and heroines from all services on Pearl Harbor!

  2. Thank you so much for a fantastic giveaway! In regards to the military my Grandfather built the planes in WW2 and my Grandmother drew all the maps for Sir Winston Churchill in WW2 (so that the planes knew where to bomb)! Also, one of my Great Grandfathers fought in the First World War and sadly was killed in action, in the battle of the Somme. I travelled to France many years ago but sadly never found his grave, as there are so many of them in rows and rows.
    Thank you once again for this amazing giveaway and brilliant post, as it is SO important to remember those that fight for our country. x

  6. I love the incorporation of spreading the word for the wounded warrior project in this blog hop. Such a worthy cause and it is so important we honor our heroes when they are abroad and when they come home! I’m in the US, and my dad was drafted for Vietnam and after went into the Army reserves for 20 years. My uncle retired a Colonel in the Army, and all my grandfathers and great uncles served in the Army during either WWII or the Korean War. I have so much respect for those that serve this country-they are such great role models and true heroes. I am so grateful for all that they do to keep us safe. (And, just fyi, that pic with the message on the piece of cardboard totally made me tear up…that’s so freaking sweet!)

  7. I’m in the US. I have a cousin in the military, and my best friend’s son also joined recently.

  9. My brother, several uncles, my late cousin and her husband and both of their kids are in the military or served and retired from the military. For years when we had family reunion camping, my one uncle would hound me about all kinds of stuff I brought for my little children. He said when they are little just put them in a drawer with blankets on the floor. He was always no nonsense! I am US

  10. Great cause to support! Veterans shouldn’t only be acknowledged on Veterans Day.
