He Will Do Anything…

Sallie Hamblen had three incredibly hot, sexy nights with Jacob Donovan, an undercover CIA agent, before he disappeared, leaving her broken hearted and forever yearning for the man she lost. Years later, Jacob doesn’t know that the beauty he’s about to seduce in a small town bar is the woman he held in his arms all those years ago… and that she’s on the run from her past.

To Keep Her Safe…

Former CIA agent turned cowboy, Jacob Donovan wants nothing more than a simple life. Just the ranch and occasionally someone warm and sweet in his bed. Until Sallie comes back into his life and all of a sudden he wants to be in her bed every night...all night. When he discovers that her life is in danger, he swears he’ll protect her. Even when secrets are revealed that threaten everything between them, he will lay everything on the line to keep her in his arms.

Sallie and Jacob met several years before and then he disappeared. Sallie was devastated but then she spent a few  years running for her life. Not knowing why someone was after her or why. The last place she ran to she finds Jacob again only he doesn't remember her.  This would have been a good book but several things bothered me. Jacob is 29 and Sallie is 26. He met her when he was 25 and quite the CIA not long after. At 25? Doesn't seem plausible. There is a over abundance of sex scenes in this book. They could cut it by half and take out all repetitive descriptive words and it would have been so much better.  I like the idea for this story a CIA operation gone wrong and I liked the characters but I found myself skimming a lot and that's just sad when it's sex scenes and you have to do that.
