Book Three: Independence Falls
He was nobody’s hero until he landed in the wrong bed …
Armed with a golden retriever and a concealed weapons permit, Lena Clark is fighting for normal. She served her country, but the experience left her emotionally numb and estranged from her career-military family. Staying in Independence Falls seems like the first step to reclaiming her life until the town playboy stumbles into her bed …
Chad Summers is living his dream—helicopter logging by day and slipping between the sheets with Mrs. Right Now by night. Until his wild nights threaten his day job, leaving Chad with a choice: prove he can settle down or kiss his dream goodbye. But when he ends up in the wrong bed, the one woman in Independence Falls he can’t touch offers a tempting proposition. Chad is ready and willing to give in to the primal desire to make Lena his at night—on one condition. By day, they pretend their relationship is real.
But their connection extends beyond the bedroom, threatening to turn their sham into reality if Chad can prove he’s the hero Lena needs night and day … forever.
I am loving this series soooo hard!! I am so glad I signed up for that blog tour months ago. I may have never found Sara without that tour. Once again we have a female soldier as the heroine and she is awesome! I love that Lena has a dog, very appropriately named Hero, too. Sara did a great job injecting lots of fun and cute moments with Hero along with showing the unconditional love, loyalty, and sense of security he brought to Lena. Chad is right up there with the sweetest (and sexiest) heroes I’ve ever read. He makes it his mission in life to help Lena recover the part of herself she thought she’d lost. I found myself with tears in my eyes several times while reading this book. I couldn’t force myself to put it down once I started it. I truly never wanted it to end. This is a great series and I am eagerly awaiting the next book.
