This book was even hotter than the first of the Badd brothers! Zane and Amarantha's story starts with a bang, and from that moment it doesn't let up.
I love the way that Jasinda can weave a SUPER sexy love story while thrown in the emotional connection we grasp for along with the plot line that keeps you engaged. Most books I read I find I am lacking one of these, but with this author I am always satisfied.
Zane is a Navy Seal that just isn't accustomed to civilian life, while Amarantha is a medic that just can't stop saving. Even if she doesn't realize it, this girl loves and strives to help people. Everyone except herself that is. She has a set of rules she lives by and she doesn't break them, wellllll until Zane that is.
There is something about each other that these two can't get out of their heads. That dessert you just can't stop craving. Something deep inside you wont let you walk away.
and thank goodness for that.
This book is such a great read from stop to finish. Its sexy, fast paced, and has a depth of its characters that I love. Plus, some of those scenes.. well, if you have read a Wilder novel before you know what I am talking about. Go read it. Get hot and bothered.
I was a Sixty-Eight Whiskey—a combat medic. So when I hear someone shout “MEDIC!” training just kicks in. It’s automatic, immediate. I don’t think I even saw the guy whose leg I tended to, not really. All I saw was him. Zane Badd. His tuxedo fit him like he’d been sewn into it, and his eyes reflected the fury and the hardness of a combat veteran, but when he looked at me, he just…softened. By the time I had his brother patched, Zane and I were both covered in blood, and I knew I had to have him.
The trouble with Zane isn’t getting him, it’s keeping him.
And the trouble with me is, even if I could hold onto a man like Zane, I wouldn’t know what to do with him. It’s not in my nature, and if life has taught me anything, it’s to not trust anyone, least of all men like Zane. He’s a warrior through and through, hard, muscular, gorgeous, tenacious, and yet oddly tender toward me.
Experience and instincts are telling me to run from Zane Badd as fast as possible, but my heart and my body are telling me to stay, to hold on and not let go. Yeah, it’s a conflict as old as humanity itself, but it’s brand new for me.

Life as Navy SEAL doesn’t exactly prepare you for normality. Yeah, I can tend bar and goof off with my seven crazy brothers, but what do I do when the woman of my dreams—dreams I didn’t know I’d had until I saw her—explodes into my life like a frag grenade? I’m trained to attack, to win, to survive at any costs, and figuring out what to do about a woman like Amarantha Quinn will take every scrap of tenacity and courage I possess. Combat is easy, it turns out, in comparison to facing your own fears and scars.
And then sometimes, just when you think you’ve got it finally figured out, fate throws you a screwball and sends everything FUBAR.
