She fell for the nice guy, but will she fall for the real guy?
Ex-ballerina Ellie Bell has twenty-four days left until her self-imposed man-less year is up. No more falling for the wrong kind of guy—charming, sexy, bad. Why can’t she find someone sweet like Charlie Johansson, her soldier pen pal? His e-mails meant the world to her, and she can’t stop thinking about him…until she meets Hunter, whose muscles and cocky smile threaten to have her relapsing.
Before Charlie “Big Game Hunter” Johansson’s last tour of duty, he’d gone through women like crazy. But after connecting on a real, emotional level via letters with his best friend’s sister, Charlie’s ready for a relationship—with Ellie Bell.
But then her brother introduces him as Hunter. Proving he’s no longer a player by becoming Ellie’s dance partner for an Army benefit seems like it could convince both siblings he’s changed, but the harder he falls for Ellie, the harder it is to come clean. Can he convince her to fall for the real him before it’s too late?
An ex-ballerina and a soldier? hm.. this is pretty interesting. Ellie and Hunter/Charlie are both likeable and loveable characters, their story was sweet and romantic. I loved their chemistry. I was late to read this. Only an hour ago I finished this novel actually I haven't memorized all the subject. But It's a great book to read if you like soldier novels.
She leaned down, touched her forehead to his and whispered, “Hunter.”
He tried to ignore the word and the way it tore at his chest. He wanted to stop her, stop them, but knew he didn’t have the strength. All he could do was not move, not think, not feel her soft hands take his face and tilt it, forcing him to look her in the eyes.
“What’s wrong?” she whispered. “What just happened?”
He could have used the excuse that he didn’t want her to “slip up” again, but that wasn’t the issue. He shut his eyes and swallowed, clueless about how to form the words.
“I don’t…” He knew his voice was shaking. “I don’t…feel worthy,” he finally admitted, being as honest as he could.
When he tried to back away, she sucked in a breath.
“Hey.” Her hands were on his cheeks, holding him in place. “Look at me.”
It took a moment before he inhaled long and steady, and did as she asked.
She was gazing at him, her lips parted, a broken, loving expression on her face. “You are,” she whispered. Then she took his head in her arms and cradled him against her chest.
Charlie could hardly breathe. Never in his life had he felt so taken care of. He felt cherished when he was with her, and loved—the same feelings he wanted to give to her.
