Want It by Jennifer ChanceFor Erin Connelly, being a good girl isn’t such a bad thing. She’s working her dream job at a Boston art gallery and staying out of trouble, which is more than she can say for her deadbeat mom. Unfortunately, her mother’s latest misadventure lands her in the clutches of a Mexican drug lord. Now the only person who can save her is the one man Erin has no business asking for help: the sexy-as-sin army ranger who just so happens to be her former high school sweetheart.

Zander James is no gentleman—and no officer, either, thanks to Erin. Four years ago, she made a call that terminated his highest aspirations . . . and their relationship. He’s never forgiven her, but when he learns that Erin’s embarking on a half-baked rescue mission, he sure as hell can’t let her go alone. Now, with a treacherous enemy lying in wait, the electrifying tension between them may just be Zander’s undoing. Because while he may be able to keep Erin alive, he can’t promise to keep his hands off her.

MY REVIEW:
     When your heart falls it falls.  When your mind then tells it that it can’t due to a betrayal of its own doing, then what?
Old hurts, lies, betrayals, and misunderstandings is what this story is all about.  Bottom line in the long run is love.
     Erin Connelly was a girl from a questionable background.  She ended up with the cape kids by sheer location. She had come there to live with her Gran Ginny.  Her mom was of the slimy variety so lying about where and what her parents were and what they were doing was a protective game, a survival of the teens.  When she got in with the kids of the cape life was great.
     Shy, big doe eyes, and nervous Erin meets and clicks with Zander James.  Not only is smart, popular, and cute he was going somewhere in the future.  Like his father and brothers he was meant for West Point.  There was just this little thing of keeping him alive till then.  You see he was like a turtle on speed.  Slow and sure about his future but the present a thrill seeker.  One that took needless risk to see how far and how close he could get to cheating death.  Until that day he almost could have been killed or the other person, Kevin, but his West Point dream and his life.  They broke up!
     Four years go by she gets a notice.  About Zander’s father’s funeral from a personal email from Zander’s mom.  She drops everything to attend.  Because she wants to pay respect and she has important questions of Zander she goes.
     This is filled with adventure and unspoken and emotions.  Love that was misread as hate or hurt.  Pain of the heart and of the mind.  I really enjoyed this story as well as this entire series by this author.  This one had a lot of humor but it had a lot of sadness and pain.  Well worth the read.  I give this 5 stars.  Provided by Net Galley.
