Navy SEAL Trick Novak knows he needs to find a better way to deal with his chronic insomnia, but a warm body and a ready smile work just fine. Until he meets Gaby Ellis, and discovers she's roommates with last night's hook-up--and thoroughly disgusted with his player ways.
Except maybe falling in love with one who'd rather not know yours.
Trick Novak, is a Navy Seal that is not with his team because he can’t sleep and his blood pressure is up. He is waking up and is trying to remember where he is and as it’s slowly coming back to him the girl that he is with jumps up and tells him she has to get ready for work to let himself out. He is still there when she comes out dressed and she says I don’t do breakfast as he gathers his things he is looking for his boots when her roommate says she put them by the door. He thinks she is nice looking but she does not give him the time of day. Over the next few weeks they end up running into each other and she does not want to be but is attracted to him. Gabby, short for Gabrielle, is a kindergartener teacher and teaches a night class at the college. Once Trick finds out he sets a plan in motion to meet her at the restaurant that he thinks she will be at and tells her that she is the reason he is there afterwards he asked her out on a date and though she felt awkward she said yes. She had a talk with her roommate who told her to let herself live a little and then he had to cancel because he had to go on a mission. By Monday when she had not heard from him she called her roommate and asked her if she could ask around about him. When he finally text her and told her he would be home in a few days and he was banged up. Then as she began to think about everything she realized he must be a Navy Seal. Once she saw him for their date he was bruised and had a broken arm. They decided to go slowly or as slow as she wanted. New for him both realized that they had good and bad in other relationships and how they could be there for each other. A good book about to opposite people coming together and finding not only each other but also themselves. I got this book from net galley. I give this 5 stars.
