Retired marine Sawyer Cain can't forget all he's seen and lost, but he can try to start over. Opening a gun range with his closest friends is the first step toward a new life—one where he finally buries the guilt he can't seem to shake. So much depends on the property he needs to buy…and the gorgeous but completely frustrating woman who refuses to sell it.
Hailey Thorne is done—with loss and with anything military, after the closest thing she had to an uncle died in Afghanistan. When Sawyer shows up on her porch he has military written all over him. He's one more in a long line of people who wants the land she inherited, and suddenly he's everywhere she goes. Hailey can't get the broad-shouldered, dirty-talking, dead-serious man out of her head. Or her life.
Sawyer's not above using his skills in the bedroom to try to convince her to sell, and Hailey is more than willing to let him. Their pleasure-only arrangement works…until emotions get in the way. But Sawyer has a secret he's convinced will have Hailey hating him forever, and Hailey's not willing to risk loving anyone she could lose.
The beginning of a new series Sawyer and friend Marcus and Jason along with Sawyer's sister Molly are trying to start a business with a gun range. The men all ex military know their weapons so it's the perfect business for Sawyer to keep them all together and have a income. A friend of Sawyer's from his time in Afghanistan offers him a piece of land.He is killed before he can put anything in writing. Hailey friend Rob who she always considered a uncle is killed in Afghanistan and leaves her his home and a large amount of property. The same land Sawyer needs. Hailey has sworn off military men and even Sawyer being ex military doesn't mean anything since uncle Rob was ex military as well and went back as a contractor and still lost his life. She can't go trust that it won't happen again. The relationship starts out slow because Sawyer needs the land but he also has a attraction for Sawyer. Once it gets started though it's sizzling hot. My only problem with this book was it seemed like the separation between the personal relationship of Hailey and Sawyer and the land Sawyer needs from Hailey was eventually at a stalemate. Sawyer and Hailey burned hot and heavy then the land roadblock. It just got a little old by the end. I believe this was just part of new series set up. I love all the secondary characters and i'm excited to see where this series will go.
