She has a rule.
He has two problems.
But can one night lead to forever?
Emma - I've sworn never to date another man in the military. It's non-negotiable. Not only was I burned, but my mom, too.
Except the hot Marine I had a one-night stand with just popped back into my life as the EOD tech I'm working with.
Especially since Vince in real life is even more irresistible than the sexy stranger at the wedding.
Too bad it won't work. It can't.
But maybe my fling with a Marine can turn into friends with benefits this second time around?
Vince - Before my holiday break home in Newport, I'll be spending time with Emma--the hot caterer I had one amazing night with at my brother's wedding.
She's full of contradictions. And I can't resist a puzzle. Or a beautiful woman I have chemistry with. I won't be here for long, so we can't enjoy ourselves for a little while?
Only two problems:
- I’m only around for the holidays.
- She wants nothing to do with the military.
But when someone breaks into her apartment, my interest in her grows. I need to ensure she's safe.
Can I protect Emma while shielding both of our hearts? Or will we end up casualties in the explosion?
