Military romances are a bit of a mixed bag with me. It's very rare that I find an absolutely amazing one. Usually they all fall into the "meh" category. This one, I do have to admit, is on the much higher end of "meh" for me.
I liked Kee. I did. But there was just something about her that didn't work for me. I just couldn't make a connection to her. I tried but there was a disconnect. At times, she just came across as immature but I did grow to like her more towards the end of the book. I loved Archie. He was definitely a bit of the strong, silent type but also very sweet. A definite contrast to Kee. The contrast helps this book along quite a bit because an alpha hero would just have overwhelmed me.
I blasted through this book. I think I finished it in one go in about three hours. Not exactly my quickest reading time but close. I absolutely loved the military aspect of it. It's the part that I was expecting to struggle with but I absolutely loved it. Kee and Archie had this very, and I don't even know if I am using the right word, normal sort of chemistry. It wasn't intense like I see in most romance novels but I felt like it was something that could happen in real life. The only issue I had with the book was Kee. I had moments of intense like for her but then I would have moments where I would be absolutely okay if she fell off of a cliff.
Overall, I did like this book in spite of my troubles with the heroine and I will be searching out the first book.
