Enhance your purchase
Known to the K2 Special Services team as Romeo, ex-Navy SEAL Jake Buchanan may spend his downtime living up to his nickname, but there’s one woman who sets his heart racing like no one else can: Maria Kincaid. Unfortunately, his boss―her brother―has made it crystal clear that she’s off-limits. Jake doesn’t do commitment, while Maria is the type of woman who deserves a promise of forever. Yet Maria finds herself drawn to Jake, the man who stares at her with a desire she wishes he’d act on.
Still haunted by her horrific childhood, Maria goes searching for the father she’s never met―and stumbles into a nightmarish experience. With her life in grave danger, she reaches out to Jake, her brother’s second-in-command. Jake figures he can help Maria without giving in to temptation. But some things are easier said than done.

I loved this book! This story is so fantastic that I actually slowed down a couple of times so I could take longer to read it. Maria and her brother own the K2 Special Service Team which consists of two former Navy seals - at least so far. Logan Kincaid is Maria's brother whose story is in the first book, CRAZY FOR HER. I have not read it yet (I do however own it), but based on the backstory mentioned in this book it sounds wonderful also.
Maria and Logan had a hard life. Their mother was a prostitute who only cared about herself. Her father was one of her mother's tricks. Lovey Dovey, their mother disliked Maria because she, Maria, was prettier than she. Since Logan was Maria's protector - from their mother, the men who visited and anyone else in the neighborhood - the brother and sister team were very close.
Jake Buchanan is one of the other former Navy seals that works for the team. Maria has always felt something special for him, but he never even looked at her twice. However, what Maria doesn't know is that Jake has also been interested in her but her brother threatened him if he ever dated her because of his well-earned nickname, Romeo.
Maria decided she wanted to look for her father. Unfortunately, with the first man she meets Maria "stumbles into a nightmare." This is where Jake gets involved and that is when their story gets more thrilling and more exciting and the couple fall more and more in love.
This is not an easy love for Maria. Jake is scared of commitment and Logan, her brother, highly disapproves.
Even though this is the second book in this series, I was able to read this story with no problem. I actually own the first book but have not had a chance to read it. Also, there is a third book coming out and I cannot wait to read that. I sincerely hope that this author continues with this series for a long time!
This is a pretty standard plot of the player finding the right woman to reform him.

I was really enjoying this book up until Id say 30 pages before the end
It seemed like the book was rushed to be finished at one point I thought id missed a few pages as jake was acting wierd then suddenly proposing and they lived happily ever after and that was that kind of thing Other wise great book shame about the ending :(
