Disclosure: I received a copy of the book mentioned for the purpose of review. All thoughts and opinions are my own. I am not responsible for the giveaway or distribution of prize.
Landon “Blackhawk” Walker is ready to get out of the Navy SEALs. He has seen and done enough, and can’t wait to get to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico where three tasks await him: get back into civilian mode, take a boat out to the El Arco Rocks, and win back the heart of the woman he lost because of his career.
Maya Gonzalez has tired of the heartbreak that comes with Landon’s deployments year after year. When he walks back into her life, she cannot deny her heart, despite her reservations.
As they lose themselves in each other and the beauty of Cabo, their passion is rekindled once again, but Maya knows that one phone call means deployment for Landon, putting an end to their reunion, and possibly their relationship.

This is a very short story so I was able to read it in a few hours. While I thought the story lacking a bit in story development, I found the main character, Landon to be fun and interesting. Maya seemed a bit whiney to me from time to time but, after thinking about her situation, I had to feel some sympathy for her. I can’t imagine being with the love of my life and knowing they will leave in a few weeks, months or even days. I felt bad for her. I enjoyed their whirlwind romance and their ability to connect (or reconnect as the case may be) after so much time.
I mentioned that the story development was lacking and that is somewhat to be expected with a story so short. I would have liked to know more about the history of the couple and the characters themselves. But, I do think there is hope for future books by this author and this series. I enjoyed her writing and would definitely pick her books up again.
