Army Strong and dripping with sin ...

Paul Jackson had his dreams mapped out. He’d graduate from high school, attend college, go pro for football, marry his high school sweetheart and live happily ever after. Until his high school sweetheart threw away everything he never knew he wanted. Throwing caution to the wind, he put his country’s dreams before his own.
The Army was a perfect distraction from her. It helped him become a man. To serve, to protect, to fight, to become strong. But when Paul returns home after three tours, he knows there’s nothing better than sexy woman, a shot of tequila and a pocket full of cash.
But he still thinks about her

Joselyn Marquez’s life changed the night of her seventeenth birthday. A forty-eight hour roller coaster trip sent her running for her life. She was homeless, and her family had disappeared. All odds were against her.

But sometimes the odds work out.

Years later, she’s an FBI agent serving as an undercover escort to investigate sex trafficking in Las Vegas. When the investigation connects her past, will she be able to do the right thing or will she still keep running from the night of her seventeenth birthday?
Tensions will rise.
Sparks will fly.
Passions will soar.
And the past will come knocking …

My Thoughts:

This was a quick read - I finished it in one night - and it was a fair read, but it wasn't a great one. I think my biggest issue was - with everything that happened to Paul and Joselyn when they were teenagers, they fell in love with each other far too easily. This came off as unbelievable to me, especially in her case. She suffered a very real trauma on her seventeenth birthday and for her to just fall so instantly in love with Paul - it just didn't come off as natural. Same with him. I felt he fell for her far too quickly and wanted her forever just a little too soon to feel natural. And after their big dust-up, they worked things out a little too quickly, too. I felt like the end of the story was rushed, then abruptly stopped. Like there was more story to tell, but it just stopped.

The story itself was kind of interesting, but predictable. There was one huge twist that was a nice (in a storytelling aspect) surprise. But even that I felt could've been more developed. Perhaps there will be a continuation of this story to address these things, but I don't know if I will be reading it. I just wasn't drawn in enough to read it.

So, if you want a quick read that involves trauma and insta-love, this is the story for you.

Whiskey, women and sleepless nights…

United States Army Captain Gabriel Hastings knew he would always follow in his grandfather’s footsteps. Serving his country was his destiny.

Until he fell in love…

When Gabe’s love affair is cut short, he turns to whiskey for comfort and swears he will never fall in love again.

Until he bumps into an unexpected angel…

By all appearances, Autumn Jones has the perfect life. Her husband, Richard, is a loving man who wants to be a father to her unborn children. But Autumn knows the truth. Richard has a controlling, dark side that leaves nothing to chance, especially Autumn. He’ll stop at nothing to make her the trophy wife he wants her to be. When Autumn bumps into Gabe, he consumes her every thought, but she can’t act on her feelings. She’s married to a dark man she can never leave. When he learns who Autumn’s husband really is, Gabe knows he will stop at nothing to protect her.

Or is it too late for him to save his angel?
