One night is all it takes...
Holly Jacobs loses her heart a little too easily. Never again. But when she meets the sexy soldier on the beach, Holly knows she's in big trouble. Zack Winter is gorgeous and in pain, and when he kisses Holly, all of her resolve melts away...
Zack is on short-term leave to attend a funeral, and he's walking a fine line. The loss is unbearable...and he'll do whatever it takes to distract himself from it. Especially if it means a night of searingly-hot sex with Holly Jacobs. Only his brilliant idea isn't exactly going according to plan.
One night isn't nearly enough. But if it goes much longer it might end in broken hearts…
The twist and turns and the obvious chemistry between the characters were amazing!
I loved reading about Holly's internal struggle when she tried to change her personality, but her old habits kept coming back. Wounded men were her weakness and it made her an easy prey. However, there was something about Zack that tugged at her heart.
I also loved how Zack wasn't the scary type of soldier. He was human and it didn't sound like he had been completely broken by the army just yet... except that he was broken over something else. Holly was the perfect distraction and I definitely loved the public encounters they had ;)
They were very aware of each other's feelings and they were also very open. I enjoyed witnessing the honesty between them.
Besides the romance of this story, I really appreciated that I couldn't predict what would happen next. I was pleasantly surprised that the author was able to inject mystery in such a short novella. I think if you were looking for well-developed characters in a novella, this book would be the one to read.
