5 out of 5 Licks
Leo Santini is a man who always has a plan. It is the way to live a well-ordered life. He never planned on dealing with the hardheaded physical therapist who is taking care of his friend. He definitely never planned on being so totally infatuated with her.
Maryanne Johnson doesn’t have time for a romance—especially with a military man. Sure, Leo is drop dead sexy, but more than one man in a uniform had hurt her before. Unfortunately, she can’t seem to resist him or his kisses. It doesn’t help that the man is as sweet as he is sexy. Falling for him is easy, but she does her best to keep herself from admitting it to him.
Leo knows she wants to keep things simple but when a Santini is in love nothing will stop him from achieving his goal—even the hardheaded woman he loves.
I’m on a military romance kick right now and I absolutely loved this book!!! I have been (not so) patiently waiting for this book since Mel announced the series on her Facebook page. Leo was instantly loveable and quite irresistible. He is strong, in the military, stubborn, sexy, and funny. Maryanne is just as stubborn and is extra determined not to fall for Leo. Leo is persistent enough to continue to find ways to show Maryanne to give a relationship with him a chance. Leonardo was funny and full of sweet moments between Maryanne and Leo. I can’t wait to meet the rest of the brothers and see what is in store for this group of military brothers. Fortunately we won’t have to wait long because Mel plans to release them very close to one another!
