She was the last woman standing. 

Madison Baker was born and bred to be a Marine. When a roadside bomb ends her first deployment—not to mention her career—she is left to pick up the pieces of what is left of her life. She’s returned to Oceanside to regroup and move on. It doesn’t mean she’s ready for a relationship, even if a particular Santini has different plans. 

Love happens when you least expect it. 

When he first met Madison back at the Academy, Dante Santini is sure the woman was put on the earth to irritate him. She’s prickly and mouthy. She always thinks she’s right. Worse—she almost always is. She hasn’t really changed over the years. One disagreement ends up with them lip locked and very nearly falling into bed, Dante discovers he might need to rethink his first impression. 

When Madison is convinced she witnesses a murder, the only person who believes her is Dante. Together, they sift through the meager evidence, trying to unearth the secrets someone is trying to hide. Neither one of them expecting it would draw them closer—or that a killer is hell bent on making sure those secrets stay buried.

Madison Baker is still recovering from her first and only deployment that ended with an IED explosion and now 3 years later she has finally moved into her own independent living area with her service dog. She is dealing with guilt, and loss and some other side effects, but she is not on her medication she like she was and she is working on being a life and still moving forward. One night after being out with a friend she thinks she sees a murder and calls her friend Jack who lives next door. The next thing she knows is Dante Santini is going to be showing up and this is the same person that she had a crush on when they were at the Naval Academy together. Dante has no problem coming out to talk to her and help her and during this time he is getting the feelings back that he had for her at the Academy but did not act on them. He is also thinking about the Santini curse, not really a cruse but when a mean falls for that one he is done for. A very good book with some suspense, romance, and the way she works in the PTSD into the story and how she recovering is fantastic. A very good book with the bad guy being a surprise. I got this book from Netgalley. I gave it 5 stars. Follow us at www.1rad-readerreviews.com
