Though well hidden, deep scars from Dean "Dagger" Gregory's troubled past have influenced each important decision he's ever made, including joining the military and keeping his distance from his best friend's sister, Mia Benson, the only woman he's ever loved. But after Dagger's friend strong-arms him into checking on the feisty redhead during his leave in Key West, he finds himself under sexual attack and with no desire—or willpower—to retreat.
The Nerd's Ramble: This is book two in the SEALs on Fire series which is a multi-author series. I'm currently reading them out of order, and there isn't too much to give away if you do it this way. This is another super steamy short, that is actually pretty decent. The set up isn't anything original-- Dagger is best friends with Mia's older brother and rather than facing his emotions, kept her at arm's distance. They're explosively hot together, and I like the way that Dagger really cares for Mia and wants to protect her. Their relationship is one that I'd like to see more of, as this ends rather abruptly. Dagger is very much an alpha-male and a 'man's man', but there are a few moments where he's a giant massive dork. "Release the kracken" made me snort out loud and lightened the mood a bit, making the story even more believable.
