Known to the K2 Special Services team as Romeo, ex-Navy SEAL Jake Buchanan may spend his downtime living up to his nickname, but there's one woman who sets his heart racing like no one else can: Maria Kincaid. Unfortunately, his boss - her brother - has made it crystal clear that she's off-limits. Jake doesn't do commitment, while Maria is the type of woman who deserves a promise of forever. Yet Maria finds herself drawn to Jake, the man who stares at her with a desire she wishes he'd act on.
Still haunted by her horrific childhood, Maria goes searching for the father she's never met and stumbles into a nightmarish experience. With her life in grave danger, she reaches out to Jake, her brother's second-in-command. Jake figures he can help Maria without giving in to temptation. But some things are easier said than done.
Maria’s desperate need to discover her heritage puts her in immediate danger. Maria Kincaid has an extremely overprotective older brother, Logan – an ex-Navy SEAL. But instead of contacting Logan when she finds herself in trouble she reaches out to his second in command, Jackson ‘Jake’ Kennedy Buchanan. No other woman, except Maria, could have a man nicknamed Romeo rushing from the bed of a willing woman toward a “woman her brother had put off-limits by threat of death.”
This was my first Sandra Owens’ book. I love that the author freely allows emotions to radiate from her characters. While watching a movie/show you can view a character’s body language; it becomes part of the dialogue. In a book, it is more difficult to depict a character’s body language, but this author comprises descriptive scenes that enhance the dialogue. I have not yet read the first book, Crazy for Her, but I will be reading Logan’s story soon.
