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.
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
Someone Like Her had several of my favorite characteristics: a yummy ex-Seal self-proclaimed anti-commitment man-whore, a damsel in distress type of h (but not a TSTL one), and scorching hot sexy times.
It’s well written and the pace is good, the balance between action and downtime, I thought, was pretty good too.
That said, I struggled a bit to keep going on with this book, I’ll confess I read a couple of other books in between and was a little confused at that because I really liked the story and the characters. It just wasn’t grabbing me and not letting go, you know what I mean? I could put it down and not feel the absolute need to get back on it.
This could totally be my mood and what I had been reading when I first started it, but I’m glad I persevered. I can’t say I was surprised by the plot twists and their resolution, but it was an enjoyable read and I will definitely be on the lookout for more books from this author. I’m crossing my fingers to have Saint’s story coming out next… In fact, I’m going to check that out right now.
