Rachel Gibson, New York Times best-selling author of Rescue Me, returns to Texas with a tale of what happens when a tough guy meets his match - and falls harder than a ton of red-hot bricks...
There's nothing like fleeing Miami to ruin a girl's day.
Stella Leon's bartending gig was going fine until gorgeous ex-Marine, Beau Junger, decked her mob-connected boss, spirited her out of the city, and claimed that Stella's half-sister - the one with the perfect life - sent him. Now Stella has no choice but to go along for the ride...and seduce Beau's military issue socks off....
The Marine Corps was Beau's escape from his old man's legacy of naval heroism and serial philandering, but no amount of training could prepare him for the day he looked in the mirror and saw his father staring back. The answer: Swear off meaningless sex. Oh, and find a way to make Stella Leon quit being so damn hot....

there should be rules.
The story was formulaic. Not bad, just not hugely exciting. It's worth it if you are hard up for a book and can't find anything else that takes your fancy.
She does ok with narrative and with women, although she is often sloppy with the dialog. But her men all sound like they have been punched in the gut, or have just puked, or are possibly pooping. That would probably be forgivable in another genre, but in a romance? Really. Not. Sexy. At all. It's a deal breaker.
The book probably would have been significantly better with another speaker (who could read men) or in the just read it version.
