NY Times & USA Today Bestselling Author
Second chances do happen…
Even amid evil…
Rhodes knew Sienna years ago. When she’d been young and gawky, more elbow and carrot hair than style, but she’d had something special even then. Now she’s all grown. But she’s a trouble magnet, and even at the compound it finds her…
Sienna had a super-sized crush on her brother’s best friend years ago. Now he’s hunky and even hotter than she could have imagined. Only she’s new and doesn’t want to jeopardize her position. When asked to help out on a job, she agrees…and triggers a sequence of disastrous events no one could foresee.
But someone will stop at nothing to silence everyone involved, especially the two of them…
The day Ice brought Sienna to the compound was a really good day for them. She’s got the skills to take care of the accounting that Stone hates. However there is someone already there that Sienna just can’t ignore, Rhodes.
Rhodes and Sienna’s brother Jared are best-friends. They served together and now Rhodes is with Legendary Security following that FUBAR mission. Jared is still active duty and there is a code between SEAL brothers, hands off the sisters.
Funny how everyone at the compound has noticed the attraction and acknowledged it except for the two involved.
As Sienna’s working on streamlining the accounting for the compound, she gets a call from Bullard asking for her help with some banking code. Since it appears to be a joint thing with Levi and Bullard she agrees to help out.
Merk and Rhodes head out to check some addresses related to the case finding some things that cause involving local police. When they return there are some interesting developments that Sienna points out to Rhodes and has to report to Levi.
This is a favorite scene, that had me giggling.
She looked at Levi. “About time to bring in a few of our connections, pass over some of this information and see what they might have to offer.”
“Or call Bullard first,” Sienna said. Both turned to look at her as she smiled. “Or not.” She raised her hands and shrugged. “Don’t quite know how all this works. But normally we would get as much information on our side before offering any to somebody else.”
Ice laughed. “I like the way you think.”
Levi checked his watch and said, “Perfect. It’s about six in the morning over there. I’ll call Bullard now.” He pulled out his phone, turned to look at Ice and said, “I’ll let you talk to him.”
In a surprise move she reached up and kissed Levi on the cheek. “You can talk to him, sweetie.” She walked from the room. “It’s getting late. I’m headed to our suite.”
Sienna shut down her laptop as she heard Levi talking to Bullard and with a small wave, turned and walked toward the office door. And that’s when she saw Rhodes, leaning against the doorway, arms crossed. She glared at him. “Did you hear the whole thing?”
He raised his eyebrows at her tone and said, “Sure. Why not? I didn’t interrupt or have anything to add.” His words were correct, and his voice was level, but the glint in his eye made her suspicious.
She brushed past him. “Levi’s talking to Bullard now. So, if you want to talk to him about this, you’ll have to wait.”
“Are you heading to bed now?”
An odd tone was in his voice. She turned to look at him. “I’m going to take a shower.”
She stopped, pivoted to face him fully and glared at him. “What does that mean?”
He raised his eyebrows once again.
She shook her head. “Don’t raise your eyebrows like that. What do you mean?”
“Nothing. I should take a shower too.” He whistled as he walked past her and tossed back, “Too bad we can’t have one together and conserve water.”
And then, just like that, he was gone. She made her way into her suite and slammed the door, locking it behind her. She leaned against it. Then slowly sank to the floor.
Because now the only thought in her head was of the two of them, making passionate love, bodies twisting in hot water, completely into each other.
Damn him. Now she needed a cold shower.
