He’s a Marine…she grew up on a commune.
He always puts duty first…she’s a free spirit with an unshakable belief in Fate.
He loves routine and order…she brings chaos and creativity everywhere she goes.
They’re either going to balance each other perfectly—
Or drive each other completely, utterly insane…
On a wild pre-deployment celebration in Las Vegas, Captain Timothy O'Shay encounters free-spirited beauty Skye McDermott, and for once lets down his guard. Now his life is about to take off in directions he never could have imagined...
This is the first book in Jeannette Murray’s Semper Fi series and I must say that I am eagerly awaiting the next installment.
Having lived around Marines for most of my life it is hard to imagine one marrying a free spirit such as Skye, although one can never tell what is going to happen in Vegas after a few too many drinks. When Tim proposes to Skye behind a potted palm tree, she sees it as fate and off they go to the chapel to do the whole quickie Vegas wedding thing. When Skye awakes the morning after her husband is gone.
Now they must decide if they are going to stay together, given their obvious differences, or call it quits. But I guess it’s true what they say, opposites do attract.
The premise of this book was a bit different from what I normally read, which was refreshing. I thoroughly enjoyed the whole Hippie meets Marine aspect of the book!
