My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Published August 15th 2017

When Nina Leon crash-lands in the rugged mountains of Montana, she’s fleeing from a deadly enemy and a painful past, desperately searching for the legendary hacker who can help her defeat the ruthless terrorist stalking her. Instead, she’s rescued by three brave ex-SEALs who will do anything in their power to protect her.

Tanner Vazquez, Aiden Black, and Balthazar Flint live by a pact forged in battle and signed with blood. It’s a bond that has saved their lives more than once. They’re committed to watching each other’s back and sharing everything.


As different as they are, Nina hits all their buttons. They agree. She’s the one they’ve been waiting for.

But Nina’s not looking to commit to anyone. She doesn’t believe in love. Her life has made her the ultimate skeptic. Lust? Yes. Sex? Absolutely. Love? What a crock.

Protecting Nina is gonna be hard enough. But convincing Nina to stay, fulfilling her sexual fantasies and getting this brilliant hacker to trust and love them—all three of them—for good?

That’s gonna be a hell of a mission.

"Let's share a girlfriend, but then get really jealous and possessive with each other. What a great idea!"

I will say it's a pretty hot idea though. It's three romances in one! What's not to love about the idea? Each guy has his own thing to love about him and in the end with them all together it's basically perfect.

This is one of those books where you know exactly what the outcome is going to be, but you still invest yourself in it for the characters. You never doubt that there'll be a happy ending (though there might be an itty bitty moment where you start worrying, because despite the confidence that "all always ends well" you know that isn't always true either) but you want to know how they get there and what obstacles they'll have to face.

The tension, the drama, will they won't they?
Better yet: WHEN will they?!

It's irresistible.

At least the romance is.

I can't say I loved the rest of the story. Military-like procedures, trying to take down the bad guy. Meh.
I do appreciate that it did actually have a story and it's not just some weak plot centered around the four having sex. It's a great balance between, with neither taking up too much time from the other.

But, again, I was mainly in it for the romance and I did get my money's worth. Or time's worth?
