Rena Woods has a great life. She recently landed the contract to decorate the home of basketball wife, Cecilia Hood, her business is growing, and this contract could make her the elite decorator in St. Louis. Rena’s sacrificed her personal life for her company without a single regret. When Staff Sergeant C.J. Riker moves in across the hall, Rena can’t stand to be around him. He may be on the volcanic side of hot, but his attitude sucks. Riker does whatever he can to get under Rena’s skin.
After a massive blow to her business sends Rena on a self-destructive binge, Riker is there to save her from doing something she might regret. Could there be more to Riker than meets the eye? And will he open up enough to Rena to tell her how he lost his leg or shut out love forever?
I really liked this little book. Rena’s great because she doesn’t let any heat off Riker just because he’s got an artificial leg, and they do not have a pleasant first meeting. For the most part, I don’t really have any complaints with this book. It was a solid entry and it paid due tribute to the members of the military. The only thing I didn’t really like was how secretive Riker was up to the very end when he gets Rena to go to a military ceremony with him and he flat-out lies about the purpose of the ceremony. Buuut, all things considered, I do like how this book turned out.
Sorry I don’t have more to comment on it, but I genuinely liked it.
