Possession: A Little Harmless Military Romance Book 2

Deke Berg has been in love with Samantha for ten years. From the moment they met, they could never keep their hands off each other. Their marriage was volatile and short-lived, and they were both much too young. Now, though, Deke knows what he wants in life, and Samantha is at the center of his plans. Unfortunately, Samantha is wary of the marriage-espcially to a man who broke her heart.

Sam has always loved Deke. Being a former military brat, she thought she'd been prepared for life as a military spouse. But the long separations were hard, especially dealing with the stranger who returned home. When she asked him to choose, he left and she tried to move on. She doesn't know if she can handle that pain again, but after spending a night together in Hawaii, it's impossible for her to ignore him.
Old prejudices and painful memories aren't easy to overcome, but there is one thing Deke understand: Samantha is his woman, and he will do anything to prove his love and win her back.

Warning, this book contains: Another hard headed military man, a few embarrassing moments, nosey brothers, and two people too stupid to realize they are perfect for each other. It's Harmless and military, so for your own safety make sure there is ice water nearby. The author assumes no responsibility for overheating the reader.

My Review:

Aw, I really liked both of these characters. There's no denial here. They know they love each other. All their friends know they love each other. You, as the reader, know they love each other. What's in doubt is whether they can live Happily Ever After together. They tried it once and it failed spectacularly and the divorce broke both their hearts. As a result, I found this story to be incredibly sweet and sexy. They have chemisty. They have love. Now all they need is to find the faith in each other and in themselves to make it work.

Deke is a SEAL and last year he went out on a mission which went horribly wrong. As a result, he's had to face that his life in the SEAL's isn't really what he wants to be his number 1 priority. I liked how much he seems to have matured because of that mission. For me, that was a lot of why this book worked for me. He had a wake-up call and realized that Sam was his everything.

Sam has learned to live without Deke, but that doesn't mean she's happy about it. She's a strong woman, but grew up with a really awful example of a military marriage with her parents. I like how feisty she is although she's not afraid to show her emotions. And poor Deke...every time she does, he goes for a tailspin. 

There were some incredibly sweet moments in this book and it was a highly entertaining read. I loved the addition of both their brothers to the story...Jonah and Mitchell. They definitely added some comic relief and fun to the story. Another great addition to this fabulously fun series.

These are on my list to read! I kind of got out of reading romance for a bit so I could recharge! These will be on my summer reading list!
