Story Overview:
A haunted beauty inspires a Navy SEAL turned playboy bar owner to change his ways in this tender and sensual novel from the bestselling author of Hot Shot and the Heller Brothers series.
 
Waitressing at a tequila bar on the beach in sunny San Diego may not be what Reece Kirkwell wants to do forever, but for now it’s perfect—other than the flashbacks to the tragedy she caused in Boston. And the fact that one of her bosses is a domineering, first-class manwhore who’s as stubborn as he is sexy. If he’d just listen to her, she could double his business. But it would also mean getting close to someone, and that’s a risk she can’t afford.
 
Cade Hardy’s partners at Conquistadors are like his brothers, but he’s the money man trying to keep them all afloat. To blow off steam, he’s been sleeping around a little. The last thing he needs is business advice from their crazy-hot new waitress. Cade can’t figure Reece out. She’s smarter than she lets on, and she doesn’t hide her disgust for his active sex life. But after he recognizes her PTSD symptoms, Cade is determined to save her . . . unless she saves him first.

My Review:
I've loved this whole series, but I think this one may be my favorite of the three books. Both Reece and Cade have some really tragic stuff in their history and that all takes a while to come out. As a result, there is some great emotional angst to this story. 

I love how Reece fits into the world of Conquistadors, although Cade is doing everything he can to thwart her efforts for the first half of the book. I was ready to hit him upside his head, so I'm glad he finally came around...gah, this guy has some control issues. But so does Reece, which is why their relationship begins with so much contention between them. But this is a romance, which means all that contention eventually bursts into combustible chemistry and wow, is it good when that happens. 

There is so much depth to these two and that made this a great story to read. I loved them. They are fun and funny when they're fighting, and then so dang sexy when they're not. I loved how Reece felt that compulsion to cook even when she knew that Cade wouldn't like it. It's a part of her, no matter what's happened. Passionate...in so many ways. Then the thing with the bike...OMG! Poor Cade! I can't even imagine trying to do that again. 

Both of these characters are incredibly strong and they are truly fantastically scorching together. I have loved this whole series, but this book...just the best! I most definitely recommend it!

Great food, great drinks, and some great romantic, sexy story-telling! All the best.

I received a complimentary copy of this book in return for an honest review.
