After a decade of serving in the Army, everyone still expects me to be Dominic ‘Nicky’ Costigan–the skirt-chasing player. They don’t know I’ve been spending my days trying to figure out my post-military life. Including how to pick up guys.
When I meet Luke on a hookup app, he makes it clear it’s for one-night only. That’s fine with me, because I’m down to see what this silver fox can do. But after I arrive at his doorstep, it doesn’t take long to realize we have serious chemistry, and we end up meeting again.
He’s got more walls around his heart than a military base, but I think he’s as addicted to me as I am to him. He can’t resist me for long. I mean, who can? Except Luke’s rules exist for a reason, and when I test his limits, things get complicated. Maybe too complicated.
This one was kind of intense. There was a confrontation with the ‘bad guy’ at the end that had a sour note and felt a little cruel.
Note: There was a hullabaloo about co-author Santino Hassell four years ago, in which it’s suspected the community was misled into crowdfunding medical support when they were not actually having medical issues, and potentially were actually a team of writers pretending to be another person, and then had poor behavior during the process of revelation and were dropped by their publisher. I already owned this book but still feel a little weird re-reading it.
