Waitressing at a tequila bar on the beach in sunny San Diego may not be what Reece Kirkwell wants to do forever, but for now it’s perfect—other than the flashbacks to the tragedy she caused in Boston. And the fact that one of her bosses is a domineering, first-class manwhore who’s as stubborn as he is sexy. If he’d just listen to her, she could double his business. But it would also mean getting close to someone, and that’s a risk she can’t afford.
Cade Hardy’s partners at Conquistadors are like his brothers, but he’s the money man trying to keep them all afloat. To blow off steam, he’s been sleeping around a little. The last thing he needs is business advice from their crazy-hot new waitress. Cade can’t figure Reece out. She’s smarter than she lets on, and she doesn’t hide her disgust for his active sex life. But after he recognizes her PTSD symptoms, Cade is determined to save her . . . unless she saves him first.
|The third book in the author series about three former Navy Seals who now own and run a tequila bar in San Diego. Cade Hardy is once again dealing with a women who has come into the bar thinking that she was more than just a night, after explaining things to her again and walking her out of the bar, Waitress Reece Kirkwell cannot believe that another woman has fallen for the guy and is glad she is not one of them. As he comes back inside and he sees the look on her face he asks her if she has a problem and she says I’m not the one with the problem you are and you are still serving lousy food. The man who looks at the bottom line knows that they must increase their food sells or they can be closed down. After a few days go by he catches her in the kitchen cooking and gets after her and this is when the story begins to take off. Trying to keep her out of the kitchen is a major problem and she is becoming a thorn in his side. He is also noticing as the others are that suddenly the food has gotten extremely better and he just believes that the same cook they had has now gone from can cheese to actually cooking all of a sudden. It takes him awhile to figure it out and after some pots and pans get thrown around he notices that she is zoning out. He gets that she has PTSD quicker than some other things that are going on. From there the story really picks up. I like that she spends time at the beach with her dog Jack, which is a nice addition to the story. The author was still able to bring in the two women from the other two books which added to the story and for once Cade was actually calm once he got to know someone and like the other books you find out why. Overall a good book. I really enjoyed the cooking part of the story also and the way she came up with new ideas for the food. I got this from Netgalley.com I gave it 5 stars.
