Finally the injured Navy SEAL brought to surgeon Erica Griffin in the dead of night has a name: Captain Thorne Wilder – her new commanding officer! Five years on he’s just as gorgeous as Erica remembers – and still totally off-limits! She might be as wary of relationships as he is, but fighting temptation will be the biggest battle of all...
The story starts with an intense and heart wrenching way, when Navy surgeon Erica gets called to duty in a middle of the night, and she has to amputate a leg from a navy SEAL, who's bullet wound is infected during the mission. They have an obvious connection, before he is swept away, before Erica even learns his name, as everything is under covert ops.
Five years later Erika learns the name, Thorne, when the former patient turns out to be her new captain.
The attraction is immediate, they are drawn together, but they both have their reason to avoid the relationship. Thorne doesn't do relationships because of the twin brother he lost in the battle, and because of his leg being amputated, he doesn't want anyone see him that vulnerable.
Erica focuses on her career, after a mistake she made in the beginning of it, that ended up costing her dearly,putting her future in the navy in danger.
They are both strong and stubborn, like a two halves of a whole, a perfect match. And even though they give up to their feelings and passion for a weak moment, the relationship between them is impossible, or so they think.
I felt the back and forth went on for a little too long, they stubbornness and persistent to denial of their feelings causing too much trouble in the hospital, as it started to affect their work. But the story was interesting, the set up unique, with surprising twists in the plot
