I know finding and signing a military vet to the agency is a long shot–but it’ll be good press just letting him try out. That’s what I tell my family, rather than admit I can’t get the letter he wrote us five years ago out of my head.
But what I tell the bartender in his hometown is a lie. I know veterans protect each other. So I pretend to be a graduate student.
Sparks. Flame. Fire. I accidentally got in too deep.
I didn’t expect to develop feelings for Gunner Camden.
And there’s no way I can admit to my lies now, not without destroying what we share. So I’ll keep faking it.
There are two versions of me: before, and after deployment.
Back then I was a screwup kid. I’d lie, cheat, and steal my way out of everything. My only love was baseball.
After I started fighting, I found out there had been another path for me. One that involved my dream. But by then I had seen too much.
The old me was dead, so I put my dreams to rest, too.
Then Chase Kinkade walks into my bar and reminds me that life is meant to live. No regrets.
Fresh. Happy. Hopeful. I can start to see a new dream, with her.
But sometimes things are too good to be true… and dishonesty is the one thing I can’t forgive.
**** My Review ****
All those who have read the previous stories that come out of the pen of this remarkably talented author, I believe were more than eager to read the story of Chase Kincade, which was next in K. Bromberg’s Play Hard series. And trust me, you will not be disappointed. I loved the emotions that were simply dripping from the pages….
Covered truths, unspoken opinions, deceit….. the beginning is not great, but behind every lie there is a truth that brings both joy and pain. How long can it last? What will happen when all the unspoken truths and deceit become a harsh reality? Can his heart forgive and forget the deceit, when forgiveness is so hard, but the reward so appealing? Will Chase and Gunner be able to find their happy eve after?
Like her sisters, whose stories have been told in previous books, Chase is a female sports agent, someone making her way into a male dominated sport. A talented and brave woman, who is not afraid to reach for what she wants. Beautiful, determined and persistent, but still fragile at the same time, Chase is a character that manages to steal our hearts. After reading the description, I somehow thought that the hero would not be my cup of tea. A military person is not my ideal choice for a superhero, but believe me he has exceeded all my expectations. His sensitivity and words put him on a par with my favorite literary boyfriends/lovers. Romantic, sweet and thoughtful, he is everything a woman needs, not to mention sexy as a sin. And his broken aspect brought even more appeal to his character. I believe that this author never fails to build characters who manage to make us feel and root for them. The connection and chemistry between them is more than apparent, from the very beginning. With snarky banter, almost plausible tension and scorching moments, I loved every single page in this book.
And K. Bromberg’s writing style is a real perfection, a real explosion of drama and description expressed through a perfectly complemented narration of the two main characters. Excellent balance of details and descriptions, and with every word and perfectly fitted sentence, you can simply visualize and feel all the perfectly captured scenes and emotions.
If you are looking for a truly emotional story, filled with the perfect mix of tension and passion, then you should definitely not miss the story of Chase and Gunner.
