Story Overview:
Fans of erotic military romances will love this short, sexy work by Rita Henuber, a prequel to Point of No Return.

While on assignment, the last thing Marine Major Honey Thornton expected was to be called away for a meeting with the acting station chief in Istanbul. Even more surprising was the former CIA operative she met there, the ruggedly handsome and built-to-last Jack O’Brien. When attraction sizzles and the meeting turns out to be a bust, Honey and Jack decide to put their time together to more pleasurable uses.

Slipping off to Jack’s hotel, the two quickly come to an understanding: no commitments, and no holding back. As the two mesh perfectly and surrender to the intense passion, the only question is whether they’ll stick to the rules of their casual hookup or give in to the deeper connection that sparks between them. 

My Review:
I'll admit, I bought this book because I was debating whether or not I wanted to review Point of No Return and this is a prequel novella. Short answer...I accepted the book for review because I did enjoy this one. It's a short, sexy little novella about how Honey and Jack originally hooked up. Honey is a Major in the Marines and she's a girl who knows what she wants... no ifs, ands, or buts about it. And when she saw Jack, he worked. She was definitely the aggressor when their relationship began and sparks flew which Jack was completely okay with. 

If you don't like a strong, confident heroine who's extremely sexually aggressive, then there's a chance you won't like this book. I'm normally that person, but for some reason Honey worked for me. She's a female in the man's world of the military and I loved how in-your-face she was in this book. Seriously, a kickass character and I look forward to seeing her do more than just romp in the bedroom...although I did enjoy her sexy times with Jack, too. I know that the story line in the book is that it looks like Honey and Jack are on opposite sides. I'm anxious to delve into it and see how things have evolved for the two of them since the end of the novella.
