One explosive device was all it took to turn Holt Cunningham from ass-kicking Marine to IT technician. Hell, he's still not over it. So when the cute little strawberry blonde at the bar asks him to kiss her, Holt can't resist the temptation of a sexy distraction. Before he knows it, she's blown his mind...and then skipped out the next morning. Lydia Thomas never expected things with Holt to go quite that far, but oh, it was worth it. After being far too good for way too long, she was ready to be bad. Except that there's that tiny detail that Lydia kept to herself-Holt just spent the night doing naughty things...with his best friend's little sister. One night isn't nearly enough. But with his friendship on the line, how far will Holt go in order to claim what's his?
I liked this one. Definitely a hot one - no doubt about that at all. I mean it starts off hot and ends that way as well. Fairly predictable story line, but not in an irritating way at all. I liked Lydia's naivety yet her determination that she knew what and whom she wanted and nothing would get in her way when it came to that. I also liked Holt's all consuming love for her even when he did not want to admit it.
Overall, a solid 3 star book. Nothing exceptionally amazing about it but nothing wrong with it either. A great super HOT beach read if I ever read one. (And yes, I have read them and will do so this summer!)
