Subject: Petty Officer Christian "Cowboy" Laramie
Mission: Locate a missing person…without seducing the man's fiancée!
Navy SEAL Christian Laramie knows everything about explosives, including how to avoid them. But he sure as hell isn't prepared for Sammi Jo Wilson—all gorgeous red hair and long-legged sexiness—in a wedding dress, asking him to find her kidnapped fiancé. Yep, he is definitely dealing with one dangerous bombshell…
Laramie has a rep for thoroughly pleasing the ladies, but he's not interested in emotional entanglements. He has rules—and engaged women are a definite no-no. Yet the searing heat between him and Sammi is like nothing he's ever experienced. Each touch gets hotter. Each kiss more intense. And if Laramie can't disarm this desire, it will blow up in the only way possible…in bed!
I always knew there's more to Cowboy, than met the ladies. There was something about him, that gave away the deeper waters running through him, than just the playboy reputation. And I enjoyed getting to know him better in this story.
I also enjoyed the humor, the farce of the wedding planning, and the banter between Sammi Jo and Laramie. The story provided lots of laughs as the small town insanity around the inn and the wedding was unfolding.
I loved that Sammi Jo and Laramier had a connection from the childhood. That he had been her hero, the one who taught her how to read, and guarded her against the bullies. That Sammi Jo had no doubt in her mind, that Laramie would help her, because of their past, made me swoon.
The attraction between them is sizzling. Those two together are something else, but it is not only physical attraction. It was being attracted to the other person, their mind, dreams, goals, and wishes for life, who they are, and what they want to accomplish, they genuinely liked and enjoyed each other, that made it adorable.
Small town gossip, few blistering phone calls, the oddest kidnapping of the history, intriguing ways to eat cake, and Cowboy finds the only lady who could win his heart, splendid, addictive entertainment
