Navy SEAL Davy Graziano is a happy-go-lucky lady killer, so nobody is surprised when he goes for some "local action" at a fellow SEAL's wedding.

But JJ Lewis turns out to be a generous, beautiful businesswoman and civic leader, and Davy's gotten in way over his head. She's got motives to find herself a husband double-quick and she has the brilliant idea of picking a military husband who'll be away on tours of duty and she won't have to deal with him much. She allows Davy to think he's seduced her at the wedding, but that one nightstand was all the interview process she needed.

Davy has ulterior motives of his own to accept her out-of-the-blue marriage proposal, which is supposed to be strictly a business proposition. But it doesn't take long after the wedding ceremony for both of them to discover they've gotten a lot more than they bargained for.

My Review:

I absolutely fell in love with this book! I loved the character building, the plot, and the suspense level! The author did a wonderful job of keeping the readers questioning Davy and and JJ's future.

I personally love stories about servicemen. I have a soft spot for anyone who serves our country because I grew up with a veteran grandfather; soooo....maybe my opinion is biased but I thought Mary did a great job showing the dedication of a SEAL.

Davy was a well built and multi-faceted character who made you want to root for him no matter what kind of scoundrel he was! LOL! The same goes for JJ; throughout the story I just wanted her to be happy and fulfilled. The romance was perfect, the story would touch my heart at times, and the ending was great!

I, personally, would like to read more of Ms. Daughtridge's work after reading this book. I would recommend this book if you like contemporary romance and are looking for a great read!
