Max nearly lost his leg on a mission in Afghanistan. He is recovering better than anyone expected, but his life as a Navy SEAL is over. He doesn't know what kind of future he has. He certainly never expects to meet someone like Paige. The beautiful scientist lives next door to the beach house where he is recovering. And they hit it off right away.
Paige helps awaken things in Max he has long thought dead. Happiness is finally within his reach, until Paige is kidnapped. Now Max much push himself harder than he ever has before, to save the woman he loves.
I liked the beginning of story quite a bit. Wounded warriors are so sexy. It was great watching Max come back to life. The sex was hot too. The connection with Paige's dog was borderline saccharine, but it was a sweet I could live with. --The kidnapping and rescue were a little over the top. And the Epilogue was kind of kitschy. But the first half of the novella was good enough to make me glad I read it. A short, sexy read, with just a little dose of angst. 3 1/2 stars. *ARC Provided by NetGalley
