SynopsisMike Casiano has lived his life by a certain creed: take care of all those who depend on you and leave no man behind. He wanted more for his life than joining his family's law firm when he graduated college. His best friend was joining the Navy after graduation, and Mike decided to join him. After surviving the horrors of war, he has returned to his hometown to run a private securities company along with the other men from his unit who were now out of the service. Out of all his men, Mike has had the hardest time adjusting to civilian life...until his best friend's cousin comes into his life. At a society ball when she was seventeen years old, Lainey Riley looked up from the dance floor to the balcony above and saw a man in Navy dress whites who would haunt her dreams for years to come. He was her cousin's best friend and commanding officer, and he had the most beautiful, unique eyes she had ever seen. She would not see him again for nearly ten years, but the image of his face and his eyes was never far from her thoughts. When she meets him again while counseling the son of her cousin's fiancée, sparks definitely fly between them. When a man begins stalking Lainey, her cousin calls on Mike Casiano to keep her safe. Despite their attraction, Mike and Lainey butt heads at every opportunity. Will they get past their own differences and hard headedness to allow the attraction between them to grow? Lainey will try every trick in her arsenal to help Mike conquer the demons that haunt him and make it possible for the wounded warrior to see that he is Finally Home.
ExcerptWith Mike, everything was raw and on edge. There was no hesitation in his touch, no timidity at all. He was intense and she knew instinctively that making love with him would be like being caught in a storm. "Oh, God," she whispered, feeling a chill run down her spine. It was overwhelming, this passion she felt for him. She'd been angry with him for giving her their first kiss to get back at his family, but at the same time, it thrilled her that he would kiss her in front of others. Kevin had always been very much aware of the fact that she had practically grown up with his family and so he'd been reluctant to show affection around others. She wondered what would have happened between them had Riley not shown up when he did. She's thrown a phone at him. He'd been furious but had stayed on the other side of the room from her to try to sort out why she was so upset. If Riley hadn't come in just then, would things have escalated? Would she be in bed with him right now? It was highly possible, she realized. If the alarms hadn't gone off downstairs, where would they be? She was so attracted to him, she had no doubt she would have given him whatever he'd asked for at that moment.

The story line was very interesting. I loved the building of the relationship that was made between the 2 main characters. Lainey and Mike both were strong in their own ways. Though Mike was an injured soldier, he's home after several yrs and now head of a security firm with his fellow soldiers. He's hired to protect Lainey and knowing that deep down she's always been the one for him, makes it tough to do the job! Looking forward to more from this author. Thanks for a great read!
