Hoax knows two things very well.
One, he’s not relationship material. Two, the nurse that treats him for erectile dysfunction is the most beautiful thing he’s ever seen, and practically has ‘the marrying type’ stamped on her forehead.
Does that stop him from wanting her? No.
Unfortunately, he learned a long time ago that Army Delta Force and long-lasting relationships don’t go hand in hand.
But beautiful hazel eyes, curly blonde hair, and the prettiest lips he’s ever seen play havoc with his resolve, making him forget his earlier convictions.
All it takes is one teeny, tiny kiss for every shred of control he has to disappear, along with the problem in his pants.
Soon he finds himself doing things that he knows that he shouldn’t. He doesn’t know that he’s found the woman that’s meant to be his. Nor does he realize that her father is the man he’s idolized from the moment he joined the army at the age of eighteen. Because, maybe if he had, he would’ve tried a little harder to ignore the pull he felt between them instead of making her his the night before he deployed for six months.
He also might’ve tried a little harder not to knock her up.
Lani can do no wrong her Bear Bottom Guardian boys are just… WOW!! Hoax is no exception, he is military special forces with no fixed abode. Off on medical leave after a motorcycle accident, he becomes enamoured with Pru the feisty nurse who is adamant she won’t date military men!! Hoax is not one to back down from any fight and makes it his mission to have Pru. What ensues is a fabulously written story that will have you laughing out loud, it will have you shouting at your kindle and it will also have you swooning for the HOT alpha male Hoax as he woos his girl. Gah, I always get excited when Lani introduces us to another one of her sexy men and Hoax was one of the best yet!! I can’t wait for more!!!

Great start to another of these fabulous stories by this author who really knows how to spin a tale.
Hoax meets Pru and is immediately taken with her, however, although she is also attracted to him, she doesn’t want to date any more military men. This proves to be a challenge for Hoax.
Fun banter and round laugh out loud humour really make this story stand out. For example that special bonding moment between Sam, Pru’s dad, and Hoax after eating Mexican food! 😂😂
The characters, both lead and secondary ones, are all really interesting and I found to be realistic. For example, Phoebe is very much the annoying little sister but also brutally honest. Both Pru and Hoax are great characters and extremely easy to like, they compliment each other so well. They are sexually combustible and have a deep need to be there for each other, as well as their family and friends.
This is a lighter romance that I feel pushes all the right buttons.
✅ a touch of drama
