I’m an all-or-nothing man—100 percent focused on whatever has my attention.
First it was serving my country in the Special Forces. Then it was building my business. Right now it’s the hot blonde at the bar who’s about to become another notch on my bedpost.
But women never keep my attention for more than a night.
Until I peel off Skylar Anderson’s clothes and her mask starts to crumble, showing me glimpses of the girl she’s hiding. She’s funny, sexy and vulnerable and throws me out of bed before I can catch my breath and suggest breakfast.
When I start my last undercover job on a yacht, turns out, she’s one of the crew. I try, but I can’t look away.
Her high ponytail shows off her kissable neck that tastes like summer.
Her short uniform reveals the killer legs that were wrapped around me last night.
And her provocative smile? I know what that mouth is capable of.
I want to explore her body, discover her secrets and sail off into the sunset with her.
I might want to go all in for Skylar, but she should stay away from me. I’ve got secrets of my own and they can only bring her trouble.
This is a stand-alone novel.
“Did I tell you how beautiful you look tonight?”
For some reason, Landon’s compliment didn’t make me wince the way some men’s comments did. Everything about him was different and it had thrown me off kilter. His warm breath on my neck shouldn’t have made me shiver. He shouldn’t ease the ever-present knot in my stomach or have me wanting to slide my hand into his as we walked. He shouldn’t make me feel safe. “You didn’t.”
“Well, you do. Not that it’s any surprise.”
“Because you’re a gentleman who prefers blondes,” I said, nudging him gently with my elbow, trying to lighten the mood.
He pulled in a breath and scraped his hand through his hair. “I’m beginning to think I’m a man who just prefers you.”
I focused on the cobbled street in front of us. “Me?” Had I been mistaken about the ex-girlfriend in town or the girl on Tinder? I tried to hold my breath to ensure I heard his reply.
“Yeah, you. I like you. More and more.”
My stomach swooped, and I tried to think of a response. My head was telling me to run. Far away. I didn’t want to fall for anyone. I’d worked hard to stay single all these years—to keep away from temptation. But now, temptation right in front of me, I found myself rooted to the spot, wanting to know what was next. “Okay.”
“Okay?” he asked.
I nodded, unsure of what to say. Unsure of how I felt. I knew I found Landon attractive.
I knew I liked him too. But I also knew that I’d been single all these years for a reason.
He wrapped his large hand around my upper arm to steady me when I stumbled over a loose cobblestone. We stopped, and I looked up at him as he swept his thumb across my cheekbone. “I’m only going to ask you this once, and you don’t have to decide now, but stay with me tonight?”
“Landon . . .” Somehow, I couldn’t say no to him, even though I knew I shouldn’t say yes.
“Think about it.”
Unfortunately not my favourite one from Louise Bay.
I didn't like Skylar and this happened early on in the book, I found her shallow.
In one chapter she admits she wants a man who has money, she has a tick list, a criteria, it's later revealed this is due to her background from living in the care system but in another chapter, she wants her independence, her own money and doesn't need a man?
I found some conversations repeated too, it was like reading a beta copy? was it rushed, not checked over enough, I don't know? I had issues with the flow.
The story was ok, a hot British guy, Landon, ex forces who has just sold his security business making him rich but as a favour before joining MI6, with a month off and not one to be lying around he goes undercover on a yacht as a deckhand to monitor the owners movements and report back to his friend.
Another romance on a yacht, Skylar is one of the head stewards, same as the last book, it's too similar, the push & pull was the same. Ile be honest I was bored.
I expected action with regards to the spying and bringing down the bad guys but none of that happens.
Landon wasn't the bossy type alpha I expected either for ex-forces.
Louise Bay is brilliant at writing sex scenes but I need more than that to keep me interested and this didn't have it.
