As a dancer who creates mesmerizing visions onstage, Neve James is looking for the same kind of stability in her love life. Her pen pal, Rory McRoy, is on leave from deployment in Afghanistan, so she heads to Boston to surprise him. After corresponding for months as part of a “Support Our Troops” initiative—and exchanging dozens of “Read When You’re Alone” letters—Neve knows what Rory likes, and she intends to fulfill his every fantasy. But all they get are a few blissful moments together before they’re interrupted by a woman claiming to be Rory’s fiancée.
Rory has fallen hard for Neve’s letters. When he finally meets her in person, he has to have her, right then and there—until Neve takes off in a fit of anger. Forced to return to Afghanistan before he can fix things between them, Rory waits four agonizing months to prove that he’s not the man Neve thinks he is. But by the time he arrives in New York, she’s already made up her mind. Luckily, Rory never backs down from a challenge, and he’s prepared to put everything on the line for love.
This is one of those books where the heroine isn't the easiest person to love.She had to work on getting my affection but she did. I also have to say i have not read book one so i don't know if there was something in there to change how i would view the characters in this book. Neve James is a dancer, a short women with a lithe dancers body. Men adore her. She regretting some of her choices in that area but some old hookups won't let her go. Rory McRoy is her Army penpal. Home on leave when Neve surprises him. The surprise is on her when it appears he has a fiance. After numerous for your eye only letters she thought she knew him and now she thinks he's a liar. Rory has to go back to Afghanistan before he can get Neve to listen. When his tour is up and he gets out of the military he heads straight to Neve. I loved that the hero and the heroine are shorter in stature. Guys are almost always tall six feet or more in most romance books. Rory is a shorter guy but Neve is shorter still. I want to say that it's refreshing to see this. Rory and Neve both have some serious hang ups. Beating themselves up over their own issues while helping the other with theirs. It seems like maybe just maybe they might have a chance when Rory's one second of indecision blows the whole works. Now what? A sweet and sometimes very sexy read. You have to love Rory's family. They are loud but loving. It's been a while since i have read anything by Wendy S. Marcus but i remember now how much i enjoy her work.
