Natalie McCleary couldn't believe her eyes-a lean-muscled, darkly tanned, nearly-naked man stood in her path…and then it hit her: love. Everyone always told her it'd hit like a thunderbolt, and she never believed them. But now she knew: practical, sensible Natalie was head over heels in love-with a stranger.
But ex-Navy SEAL Dade Vega wasn't about to be a stranger for long. He'd ridden into Cupid on his motorcycle, vowing to keep a promise he'd made to a military buddy. But a single glimpse at Natalie-soaking wet and unexpectedly tempting-changed his life forever.
But how can he offer her is love, when he can't even promise to stay in one place for longer than a week?
Natalie McCleary has read a letter asking for some advice. She’s also a woman who owns her own business. Dade Vega is a war vet – a Navy SEAL to be more specific. This appears to be a story about listening to what your heart is telling you. But you have learn to have faith and not doubt yourself.
As I read about Natalie, I found that I could connect with her. I grew up with a parent who wore an AFO, ankle-foot orthotic, my whole life. Back when I was growing up, people were making fun of anyone who was different. Some people are finally more understanding and not bullying those that are different.
Natalie also has the typical family members – those that know what’s best for you and everyone in the family is fair game. Then there are the ones that make you laugh. This is what makes all our families unique.
Lori writes several scenes where some of Natalie’s female family members get together. She also makes me feel as if I’m a part of that family circle. It also has me reminiscing about my own female family members. (Reviewed by Lynn from Romance Reader Enthusiast)
