ARC Book review: The SEAL's Rebel Librarian (Alpha Ops #2) by Anne Calhoun
eARC Provided by publisher through netgalley
Jack Powell never planned on leaving the Navy, but his final mission as a SEAL left him with a tremor and a bad case of nerves. He's home, taking some college classes and trying to figure out what comes next when he meets Erin Kent, a divorced college librarian with an adventurous bucket list and a mission to get her ex-husband's voice out of her head. Jack guides Erin through skydiving and buying the motorcycle of her dreams, blithely accepting Erin's promise that their relationship is purely temporary. But when Jack gets the chance to go back into the shadowy world of security contracting, can he convince Erin to break her word and join him on the adventure of a lifetime?
Jack Powell is trying to figure out how to heal from his last tour of duty when he comes across Erin Kent at the college library where he is taking classes. Erin just got out of a marriage where her husband was not supportive at all. Her confidence in the dumper she's trying to talk herself into trying some of the things she has always wanted to do. Then comes Jack into her life. Even though he has his own issues Jack is the key to getting Erin's confidence back. He opens up her life to a whole lot of possibilities. Promising each other their relationship is only temporary and keeping it that way quickly becomes hard to do. Loved this book. Jack is this super strong guy who is feeling damaged after his time in the SEALs. While trying to work on his issues he comes across Erin and in no time at all he can't get enough of her. At the same time Erin is broken by her ex but is pushing herself to find her way to who she is now. You have these two strong people who end up helping each other and falling in love. This is the kind of story that you can enjoy from beginning to end and smile through the whole thing. I found myself rooting for both Erin and Jack because they were both so deserving of happiness.
