Love only works when your heart is in the right place. Hers could be right next door...
Single mom Bridgette Dalton doesn't have time to stop and smell the roses - not even in her own flower shop. But that doesn't mean she hasn't noticed Bodhi Booker. Her ruggedly handsome next-door neighbor would be the perfect candidate for a no-strings fling. Having loved and lost, Bridgette's not ready to hand over her heart...but she could use a distraction.
Bodhi has one rule: never leave anyone behind. As a special operative, he knows that each new mission is more dangerous than the last. He's never made a promise of forever to a woman, not even to the beautiful widow who has him tied in knots. And if there were anyone who could tempt him into putting down roots, it would be Bridgette and her adorable son.
But as his next deployment nears, they make a startling discovery. Their passion, meant only for the here and now, might already be blossoming into something more...
This is the second book in this series and it was such a great read! Bodhi and Bridgette's story was slightly heartbreaking for the losses that the pair had suffered in their pasts but such a romantic read as they found love in each other while protecting Bridgette's son Louie. Their story moved along well and was enjoyable to read. I loved the interactions between Bodhi and Louie as Bodhi realized how important a role in his life Louie was starting to take. I also enjoyed the emphasis and importance of family for both Bridgette and Bodhi as well as the return of the characters from the previous book in this series. The narration by Mr. Lane was performed well but I think that I would have enjoyed the story more if the narration was performed by two narrators. I would recommend this book to others as it was such a great read.
