Giving It All by Christi Barth
Logan Marsh is never in one place for long. His life's mission is to go to disaster areas to help those that can't help themselves. While on one of his missions, he gets an emergency call from his friend Knox. What he tells him throws him for a loop. Now he is on his way home from the Middle East, changing planes so many times he's lost track. Landing in the island of Dominica in the middle of a hurricane, to change planes, was not how he figured the last leg of his flight to take place. When all flights are cancelled, he tries to find some lodging and instead runs into his high school crush, Brooke Gallagher. Brooke is here to get her life back in order and snap out of the depression she's been in for weeks. Offering a place to stay at the resort she's booked in, is a win win situation.
Reconnecting with Logan, who happened to be her best friend and secret crush in high school, is exactly what the doctor ordered. After a couple of hot nights with him, Brooke sees a light at the end of her tunnel. Now that they are both back in DC, Brooke is finally making decisions in her life, she wasn't able to face before, all thanks to Logan.
Logan never imagined he was going to feel these emotions, now all he can think about these days is Brooke. He's in danger of possibly hurting her, since he knows that when the next disaster strikes, he will be leaving.
I love the Naked Men Series. I think this is my favorite so far. I fell in love with Logan and his openness with Brroke. Their chemistry was sizzling. I can't wait till the next book in the series!
Another good Naked Men story
I have been enjoying the journeys of the Naked Men. This is the third, and it continues to hold my attention. Brooke has been struggling with a traumatic event and hiding from life. With a push from her family, she takes a trip and finds more than a respite. Logan is always on the move but is trying to return home to meet the sister he never knew he had. Hurricane Danielle brings this pair of friends back together and helps them heal. Misunderstanding, miscommunication, and secrecy make this a bumpy road for both, and as they came to understand themselves as well as each other, I had tears in my eyes. I recommend this book and the series.
I received a copy of this story through Netgalley, and this is my unsolicited review.
Giving It All
This is book three in the series but can definitely be read as a standalone. I haven't read the books that came before this one and I didn't feel the slightest bit lost.
Ten years ago, Logan's friends were in an accident and thought to have not survived. Logan spent three days looking for them and due to his persistence, they were rescued. This event changed Logan's life. Logan goes into disaster areas with his family's foundation to help people rebuild. Detoured on his way home to meet his sister, Logan runs into Brooke, an old friend from high school. Brooke is on vacation trying to reset from a personal tragedy. When she runs into Logan, she figures a vacation fling is just what she needs to start to move on. Can the person you crushed on for so long just be a one-time thing?
The chemistry between Brooke and Logan was palpable. Since these two were really good friends in high school and never acted on their mutual attraction, once they got together it was like explosions and fireworks. Brooke seemed to need more supportive people in her life. The tragedy she experienced was devastating but the people around her didn't seem to be all that helpful. Logan has a hard core hero complex that seemed to lead him to being short sighted when it comes to taking a more active role in the business side of his family's foundation. I loved that these two really supported each other and the goals that they had. I definitely will be adding books one and two to my TBR!
