Ex-Navy SEAL Cannon Culver, has one mission—the safety of a little girl. When Daisy Close is pulled into the situation, his gut instinct is to trust no one, but even he finds himself unable to resist this ‘Snow White’ type woman who everyone seems to flock to. After an all-nighter talking, a date with more danger than they bargained for, and then leaving her when he gets summoned to a mission … Cannon realizes there is no room for a woman in his life.
Too bad he can’t get her out of his mind and too bad she doesn’t let go that easily. When dangerous forces threaten everyone’s safety, Cannon has to make a choice—give up the woman he loves for his sense of duty or let go and trust in a higher power.
This book is part of a series by multiple authors. The individual books may be read in any order.
This was my first read in this series as well as from this author. I thought the story was interesting but had some problems with Daisy. First of all, I had a hard time believing that a book editor had no idea what a valet is. Has she never read any historical fiction? I see valets in books all the time. Okay, that is a small thing but it set my back to arching from the beginning. And I thought her issues with being number one were annoying. Obviously they were issues based on residual insecurities from her previous relationship but if having to go to work in an emergency situation is going to be an ongoing problem, she needed to look for someone in another line of work.
I liked Cannon and how tender he could be despite being a tough guy and how delightful his banter was with a little girl. I liked his calm demeanor even under pressure.
I loved Pasha and though the thought crossed my mind that no normal kid could always be that polite and cooperative I did have to remind myself that I used to babysit a little girl who after eating lunch would turn to me and state very politely, “May I take my nap now please?” So apparently there are kids like this in real life.
This has religious elements in the story but not too in your face.
