Wedding planner Felicia Bradford is in trouble. Mercenaries are holding her sister hostage and threatening to kill her unless Felicia helps them steal top secret information from the Navy’s Special Operations Headquarters. Having no other way to access the base, she pulls a gun on the first man in a Navy uniform she finds, demanding he get her through the gate.
Navy SEAL Logan Dunn just got back from a mission in Syria and is looking for a little down time to relax. That plan goes out the window when a beautiful woman shoves a gun in his back and begs him to do something she clearly doesn’t want to do. Logan does what any Navy SEAL would do in the same situation—he saves the girl and takes out the bad guys.
But their actions that day kick off a crazy chain of events, including a fast-burning whirlwind romance, an out-of-control sister, an insane covert plot involving a defecting Russian pilot, a mercenary bent on revenge, and a sunrise wedding for a bride who never wakes up before noon.
Getting through her sister’s kidnapping will look like a piece of cake compared to what comes next.
This is one of my absolute favorites of this series.
When Felicia ‘kidnaps’ Logan his instincts are on the money. He could have prevented her from succeeding but he followed it through, he needed intel to help her out of whatever situation she found herself in.
Nothing like starting this book off with a kidnapping. This is a favorite scene after Logan and his team get her and her sister out of their very sticky situation and all the questioning is done.
His idea of a little while turned out to be another hour, but at least Logan hung around with Felicia while they waited. Now she and Stef were safe, she could fully appreciate how gorgeous he was. Not to mention what a nice guy he was. She didn’t know if it was because they’d gone through a life-and-death experience together, but standing there in the hallway talking about inconsequential everyday things, she felt like she’d known him for years.
“You want a ride back to the grocery store where you left your car?” Logan asked after the CIA finally finished up with Stef. When Felicia gave him a questioning look, he added, “One of my buddies drove my SUV over here from the warehouse.”
She hadn’t even thought about his SUV—or hers—until now. “In that case, yes. If it’s not too much trouble.”
It hadn’t sounded nearly as ridiculous when she said it in her head. Like she hadn’t caused him enough trouble already by taking him hostage.
But Logan smiled. “No trouble at all.”
They didn’t say much on the way back to the shopping center. Probably because they were all tired. Heck, Stef looked like she might nod off in the backseat. Felicia couldn’t blame her. It had been one hell of a day. She was just glad her sister was okay.
Felicia turned around to face front again when she caught sight of the grocery bags on the floorboard.
“Crap,” she said, looking at Logan. “You have ice cream back there.”
“Damn. I completely forgot about it.” He cringed. “It’s probably a big gooey mess. The hot dogs probably didn’t fare so well either.”
She blinked. “You eat hot dogs?”
Even wearing a uniform, she could tell how his biceps to see if she was right was so strong, she practically had to sit on her hands to keep from giving in.
Luckily, Logan didn’t seem to notice. Instead, he gave her an injured look. “What’s wrong with hot dogs?”
“Nothing, I suppose,” she said. “I assumed you’d be more of a lean protein guy.”
He let out a chuckle. “Lean protein means cooking, and cooking’s above my pay grade. Unless it’s in a microwave. I can handle that.”
She laughed. She still couldn’t understand how he could have a body like his on a diet of hot dogs and Hot Pockets. The image gave her an idea though.
“I figured out how to repay you for what you did for Stef and me,” she said. “I’m going to make you dinner.”
In reality, it didn’t even begin to cover what she owed him. She wasn’t sure if anything ever could. But a home-cooked meal was the least she could do.
“You don’t have to do that,” he insisted. “I don’t expect anything in return for today.”
He was humble, all right. It was a quality that made him even more attractive.
“I know,” she said. “But I want to.”
Logan flashed her a smile as he turned into the parking lot of the shopping center. “Okay, sounds good.”
Felicia relaxed in her seat, relieved—and more than a little thrilled—he’d accepted her invitation. She would have asked him to follow her back to her place right then, but that meant bailing on her sister, and she wanted to spend some time with Stef to make sure she was okay after what happened today.
“Next Friday work for you?” she asked Logan.
“Definitely.” He glanced at her, his mouth curving into a sexy grin and making her pulse skip a beat. “I can’t wait.”
She smiled. “Me, either.”

Of course this isn’t the end of everything, not with one of the bad guys missing.
Felicia and Logan hit it off hot and heavy but the threat is still out there and worries for her sister make this even more intense.
Fast paced, witty, romantic and suspenseful, you won’t be able to put this book down.
