The last thing Blue Hendricks needs six months into his uneasy reentry into civilian life is trouble in the form of his old friend's kid sister, all grown up and smack in the middle of a dangerous murder investigation. But he didn't become a SEAL to turn his back on the hard stuff, and he can't bring himself to ignore Everly's call for help--no matter how much he knows he's not fit to be around the soft, vibrant woman she's become. Not after the things he's done.
Everly Campbell is desperate. When her roommate is murdered and the body vanishes, Everly fears she might be next. With no one to believe her, Everly runs to a remote Alaskan town to find a man she only vaguely remembers and his crew of ex-military brothers who could be her only hope. Blue wants to keep things all business but Everly isn't a little girl anymore and the commanding former SEAL is more temptation than she can resist.
As the men on Everly's trail draw closer, Blue will do anything to protect the woman he's starting to think of as his...
I really enjoyed this story and getting to know Everly and Blue. She thinks she is a big disappointment to her family and Blue hasn't seen his mom for 20 years. They grew up across the road from each other but he is 10 years older. When circumstances have them on the run and Blue goes home hostile and stays a short time and then on the run again, you find out things from their past. After a few life threatening situations and finding out what happened to Everly's roommate then these 2 go back home for another short visit. That visit mends some of the family problems. Then they are on their own again and living separate lives but Everly wants Blue permanently in her life so she goes to Alaska to make that possible.
I received this from NetGalley and Berkley for an honest review.
