Someone Like Her by Sandra OwensKnown to the K2 Special Services team as Romeo, ex-Navy SEAL Jake Buchanan may spend his downtime living up to his nickname, but there's one woman who sets his heart racing like no one else can: Maria Kincaid. Unfortunately, his boss - her brother - has made it crystal clear that she's off-limits. Jake doesn't do commitment, while Maria is the type of woman who deserves a promise of forever. Yet Maria finds herself drawn to Jake, the man who stares at her with a desire she wishes he'd act on.
Still haunted by her horrific childhood, Maria goes searching for the father she's never met and stumbles into a nightmarish experience. With her life in grave danger, she reaches out to Jake, her brother's second-in-command. Jake figures he can help Maria without giving in to temptation. But some things are easier said than done.

     How are you supposed to look at life as anything but screwed up?  Especially, when you have an animal instinct for staying alive and well.  You see Logan and Maria Kincaid a brother and sister tag team.  They have always had each other’s back.
     Of course Logan being older he thought he had a say in whatever Maria love life she had.  Well, Maria was about to show and tell him differently.  You see ever since she was born she has had it rough.  Lovey Dovey, what person in their right mind legally changes their name to that?  Well, “her mother” that’s who.  I use that word very loosely, was as Logan put it a “two bit whore.”  She was always trying to defend off, with the help from her big brother Logan, the “Johns” her mother had to the house.
     No matter how much she did for Lovey Dovey it was never enough.  One day she asked her what she did wrong and basically she said, LIVED!  She asked Logan why their mother hated her so much he said because she was more beautiful than their mother.  She felt defeated so, her whole life was for not when it came to her mom.
     On her twenty first birthday it was the most electrical night she can ever remember.  For it was the first night her and Jake Buchanan, her brothers second in command at K2 Special Services.  He was an ex-Navy SEAL.  That night it was like the first time that had both really ever seen each other.  But then, there it was that look between Logan and Jake that said, “Hands Off!”  Once it was issued the eyes were averted except through covert looks.
     Then Maria was off to college at Florida State Univ. as a law student.  Two weeks from graduation when Maria calls Jake after midnight with an SOS!  She made him promise not to tell Logan or she would tell him where she was.  He agreed.  He left right then once he threw out the woman in his bed, out.  They didn’t call him “Romeo” for nothing you know.  He was scared for Maria on so many levels but the one that was really scaring him was the emotional one.  For god sake he was called “Romeo” for a reason, he was not meant to be with only one woman…
     This was one fast pace, erotic romance comedy.  I totally enjoyed it.  The author puts a fun spin on some touchy situations but does it with respect.  I give it 5 stars.  Provided by Net Galley.  Follow us at:
