Bay Thorn expects some resistance as a woman embedded with a SEAL team in hostile territory. Nobody ever promised her it would be easy being part of a unique and elite team of women placed on the front lines for experimental purposes. Still, she wants to prove to the indomitable men that she is a capable medic who can watch their backs when lives are on the line.
Gabe Griffin knows from the beginning that Bay is different. Not only is she cool under pressure, she refuses to be intimidated by the SEAL's uneasy reception. When the commanding officer assigns Gabe to show Bay the ropes and help her adjust, he is unsure if this is a blessing or a curse. If she cannot be an asset, good men will be lost in the line of duty.
It does not take Bay long to win Gabe over. Between her mother’s care packages of delectable cookies and her willingness to be both tough and humble, she is more than Gabe ever expected to find in a woman. Still, the attraction simmering between them must remain a secret until the war zone has been left behind.
This story is both beautiful and frustrating. The chemistry between Bay and Gabe is scorching hot, but the author makes the reader wait what seems like eons for any fulfillment. Ms. McKenna’s understanding of the intricate rules and culture of the SEALs adds unexpected depth to the story.
