When Navy SEAL Leland Gates runs off to his family's secluded cabin to lick his wounds, he never expects to find makeup heiress Jamie Pearson hiding out there. His sister's best friend swears she's only there for a weekend of relaxation, but his well-honed instincts tell him that she's in big trouble.
Getting tangled up in Jamie's latest hot mess—or her sheets—is the very last thing he needs, but in close quarters like these, there's no denying the white-hot passion blazing between them.
Yes, another hot SEAL story, with a mix of a steamy romance and intrigue - perfect makings of an entertaining book.
Leland and Jamie had known each other for years, after all, she is his sister's BFF. They both have had feelings for each other since the teenage years, but, of course, there has been some misunderstandings.
I enjoyed that Leland and Jamie cleared up the misunderstandings early on in the story, and were honest about their feelings to each other. The story gets rather... steamy (HOT!), and the heat level is high up. But it is a very loving and tender romance.
The intrigue and threat, grows as the story unfolds. And the recuperating SEAL gets to save his girl from real danger, when the menace finds her even in the cabin.
Close Quarters is well written, the sizzling story has a lovely flow, and an epilogue, that gives the book a satisfying ending. ~ Four spoons!
