“Please, Jordan. It’s Emme.”
The last thing Major Jordan Grant expected was to be pulled off his unit’s deployment for a civilian mission. But when Titan calls, you answer — especially when the mission is to rescue the younger sister of your childhood best friend. Moments away from death, NGO nurse Emme France could only pray for a miracle.
The last person she expected to see in the smoke and dust was Jordan Grant, her teenage crush and litmus test of all the men she’d dated ever since. Lying low at Titan’s exotic Abu Dhabi headquarters while the media furor around her rescue settles, Emme and Jordan explore a mutual attraction that is no longer young and innocent. Days in the desert paradise ignite desire and blur reality…until they return home, where Jordan rejoins his deployed unit and Emme is left alone to reevaluate her life and priorities.
Their passion was forged in the fires of combat. Will the home fires be enough to keep the burn alive?
Review by Twinsie Angie
I purchased this book and audio.
So, we kinda know Jordan but not a whole lot. We know he survived the unimaginable thanks to Bree. We know he has demons. We know he is struggling. So when I got his book I was so excited to meet this man.
Again, I have to say the narration is A-MAZ-ING!! I mean Hayden just blows me away with each book. I absolutely love love love her ability to tell the story.
Jordan is going to dedicate his life to military and service. When he gets a call to come and do a special “off the books” mission for a family friend he is stunned. He always thought Emme was something special as a kid and now he can’t imagine her as a woman. He joins the Titan Team (This is a series from Cristin Harber) who was hired by her family.
Emme is doing her thing providing care for women in another country when she is taken as a hostage. She is not sure why and is giving up surviving when she is rescued by….Jordan…..Doug’s best friend. The one guy she always crushed on???
The story of Emme and Jordan was amazing. The way he helped her get through her trauma. The way they both talked about their history and wanting to explore MORE. Of course, stuff goes sideways and hearts are on the line.
I was so excited by this couple. I love the way they bonded and how they both accepted each other for who they are. They both wanted more with the other but were scared to death at rejection or changes they couldn’t handle.
Tarina has spent her entire life in and around the military – first as a dependent and then as an enlisted Air Force member.
She writes contemporary and military romance about strong women and the men strong enough to love them. She draws heavily from her own military experience to create authentic characters who face real personal challenges.
Tarina is still active duty and a single mom of six-year-old twins. Her favorite hobby is sleep. She has delusions of retiring from the military and being a stay-at-home mom and full-time writer.
