Despite his thirty-nine years, Tucker Hudson is in peak physical condition and is considering rejoining the SEAL Teams after a ten-year hiatus. What he hadn’t counted on is a steady relationship with Brandy. Is this thing between them something he can count on or is it just a distraction? Now he’s torn between his heart and career. Can he balance them both?
A plus-size girl, Brandy never fails to be there for her friends’ and their happiness. But for her, relationships are little more than one-night stands, and she’s made her peace with who she is. At least until Tucker shows up at a SEAL wedding on New Year’s Eve. The intensity between them makes her wonder if marriage is a wise choice or just another misstep.
The evil forces surrounding them will test their relationship. Will their love be strong enough to last a lifetime, or will it become just a pleasant memory of what could have been?
Point of view:
This is the second novella of the series which follows the same couple and build off events from previous books – so you want to listen/read them in order.
Beginning with events immediately after New Years SEAL Dream, this one was more cohesive than that but still felt a bit choppy and underdeveloped in terms of story. The suspense/action I expect from titles under these categories is (so far) missing. There’s two mystery-type sub plots – one resolves itself without anything action-wise from the characters or any type of real explanation. The other is just left hanging and doesn’t really have the oomph to make this a cliffhanger. While this ends with Tucker & Brandy’s wedding, it seems the next books might get more suspense as Tucker is now back to being a SEAL.
JD Hart’s narration continues to be solid and makes these easy to listen to.
