Alexis Yeung did everything right....only to watch everything go horribly, horribly wrong. Broken and angry, Alexis high-tails it to Europe, determined to face the world on her own terms and without consequence. Which includes a mind-blowing night with a sexy, scarred stranger.
Except, embittered former pararescuer Luke Jackson isn't exactly a stranger. He's supposed to keep an eye on Alexis without her knowing. Ending up in bed together was definitely not the plan. Now he's chasing her (admittedly hot) ass across Europe, a game of cat and mouse that always ends with the two of them tangled up in the sheets.
Something in their scarred, damaged souls calls to each other. And God help them, the sex is unbelievably hot. But if Alexis discovers who Luke really is, he'll lose the one thing that makes him feel whole...
Each book in the Out of Uniform series is STANDALONE:
* In Bed with Mr. Wrong
* His to Keep
* Falling for His Best Friend
* His Lover to Protect
* His to Take
A fun, sexy, touching story!
This is book 3 in the Out of Uniform series and it's about Alexis Yeung and Luke Jackson. Because of her illness, Alexis is barren. When Eric broke up with her, then her sister announced she was pregnant, and when her grandfather made some rather unsavory comments, Alexis decided she needed to go and discover which direction she wanted her life to go. So, she ran...all the way to Europe. While there she meets Luke and after getting off on he wrong foot, they begin a fun and sexy adventure. I forgot to mention that Luke was sent by her sister and friends to make sure Alexis stayed safe. She's not going to be happy when she finds out they sent her a babysitter!
Funny, sexy, wicked banter between them, Luke and Alexis are quite a match. It's true that like calls to like. I love the families and friends in this series, except for Alexis and Avery's grandparents. I can't wait to read more!

Need is greater than want
Luke Jackson meets Alexis Yeung in Cork, Ireland. He was following her for a friend, who is concerned about her welfare. She is off on a journey to help herself, after a cancer scare. Luke spends just one night with her and falls hard.
Alexis is trying to reach out to her long passed mother, and learn from her happiness. She thinks Luke is amazing. She also wonders why he wants to be with her.
Luke knows if her tells her the real reason he sought her out she would be angry. He needs to keep her close and telling her the truth would have her running off. He cannot help that she is just beautiful and sexy and everything he never thought he wanted.
Alexis asks herself why she puts up with Luke. He is just as broken as her. Together they make magic. He makes her feel feminine and she has never had that before.
This book is just so sweet and sexy and tugs at the heartstrings. The only hope these two have for a future is if they both come clean about the things they are keeping from one another. I was amazed at how good the banter is. The sexy times are off the charts.
This story just moves me. I found the characters to be people that were hurting and trying to come to grips that they have to make the future they want to live in.
