Product Description

From the bestselling author of Welcome to Forever (“Full of heart and emotion!”—Lori Wilde) comes a sweet, sexy novel about breaking all the rules. In Seaside, North Carolina, the boys on the base are heroes—but that doesn’t mean they’re always well-behaved.
As a preacher’s daughter, Valerie Hunt only dates the very respectable, very boring men who meet her father’s strict standards. In private, however, she leads a double life as a romance writer of steamy stories about the least respectable sorts of men. Valerie has always kept her hottest fantasies separate from her real life, but when she nearly runs a hot-blooded biker off the road, the lines begin to blur.
Even though Valerie almost killed him, Griffin Black can’t be angry after he learns the reason for her distracted driving: an unruly puppy belonging to her ailing friend. As a member of the military police K-9 unit, Griffin insists on training the dog himself. But he soon wonders how he’s ever going to stay disciplined around the most alluring, down-to-earth, and totally unattainable woman he’s ever met. Valerie is the ultimate good girl. And Griffin is going to need all his old tricks to unleash her wild side.

Being the daughter of the town preacher doesn't leave Valerie 'Val' Hunt many options when it comes to finding Mr. Right. So, instead, she creates her own happy ever after through her writing. But with a serious case of writer's block, Val is looking for some big inspiration. Luckily, she finds it in military K-9 officer, Griffin Black, the man she almost knocks off his motorcycle.

Griffin Black has too much to deal with. Worrying about his mom and her illness and trying to train his new K-9 partner should be enough to keep him pre-occupied, however it seems thoughts of Valerie are taking over his brain. Helping the gorgeous woman to train an unruly puppy is no problem at all, especially when it gives Griffin a chance to spend time with her. Can he convince her that happy ever after is possible outside of her stories?

Having absolutely loved the first two books of this series, I couldn't wait to read Val's and Griffin's story, and I've got to say that it does not disappoint. Right from the beginning, this story was riveting, fast-paced and I loved how the hero and heroine came face-to-face for the first time. Would Griffin react badly to her recklessness?

As for the dialogue it was intense due to the main characters back stories, what's going on with Griffin's mom; what's going on with Val and her writing; and the various situations the hero comes up against in his job. Will Griffin be able to train his dog before the eager pup ends up seriously hurting someone? Will the hero be able to handle the changes his mother is going through? Will Val be able to overcome her writer's block? However, there were some light-hearted moments that made me smile.

This was a fantastic read! You will laugh, sigh, and have your heart broken, and your heart warmed. This story combines just the right amount of cute, funny and sexy moments. Val and Griffin together are a perfect match and their chemistry is off the charts steamy. The love scenes are well written and sensual. The storyline is easy to follow and the emotion tied up in the pages makes this story shine. I really enjoyed all the scenes involving the dogs and the K-9 training, it was interesting and it really added another layer to the story and to the individual characters. Also the way Alzheimer's was depicted is spot on, I work with these patients every day, and the author does a wonderful job of showing how it effects everyone around the person. The only drawback for me was with Val and her struggle not to "disappoint" her father. I see where the sentiment is coming from and agree with respecting your parent, but at 30 years old I think she should have been looking to her own heart and mind more than what her pastor father would expect. It just seemed like a lot of her choices and decisions were more like a teen still living at home. But even with that being said I truly enjoyed the story. I think it has a lot to offer anyone who loves romance, a good emotional read with bursts of laughter or just a well written engaging story.
