No commitments. No expectations. No way this could possibly go wrong…right?
Former special-ops soldier Sam Brand is used to getting what he wants. What he wants is to unbutton the buttoned-down, sweet, and shy Dahlia McGregor. He’s hot to find her wild side. She’s eager to let him explore it. So he makes his proposition—no strings, no hurt feelings, and no promises—save for one: she’ll have the time of her life.
After a broken engagement, Lia’s looking to someday find the right man and settle down. That’s some day. Now it’s all about the night. A hot, meaningless fling with a magnificently weathered blue-eyed stud like Sam couldn’t hurt: he’s sexy, and sure he’s arrogant, but best of all, he’s here. In other words, he’s perfect…for now.
But when Sam is wounded in the line of duty and left in Lia’s tender loving care, all bets are off. Because the more time they spend together, the more it becomes clear: this “one night” deal is getting steamier and lasting longer than they counted on. It started as a fun little game. Is it possible they could be playing for keeps?
4+ Solid Stars
This was a fun read, which I was 100% in the mood for and which I finished in one sitting.
It is definitely my favorite of the three Alpha Men books so far and and I enjoyed it immensely.
It had one of my favorite romance book plot gimmicks AKA, the “we are forced to be around each other for a while because of [blank],” in this case starting off with Daisy and Mason’s wedding and Sam and Lia (the H and the h) both being in the bridal party.
It pretty much took off right where the last book ended and dove RIGHT into the flirty-dirty fun, which I always find refreshing and fun.
I really liked Sam and Lia as characters, both independently and as a couple. Their banter was great.
Definitely recommend if you are in the mood for a sexy, lighthearted, “friend to lovers-esque” romance.
