Sophie Keaton’s love life is a disaster. Too busy with her art gallery and the Army National Guard, she rarely has time for a date. Her orderly existence takes a twist when her Army National Guard unit gets a new Company Commander, Captain Gage Jenkins, who dislikes the idea of women in the Army, particularly her, and proceeds to make her weekend drill miserable.
Sophie finally takes her love life in hand and goes out on a date. Unfortunately, her date ends up in the emergency room, with an allergic reaction to her cat. Her live-in brother, Bryce, feels sorry for her and offers to take her out to pick the “perfect man”. When she finds Mr. Perfect, she spends a passionate night with him, and awakens to discover that Mr. Perfect is the self-righteous, and annoying Captain Jenkins!
Sophie’s only saving grace is that Captain Jenkins did not recognize her as the homely and klutzy lieutenant from his unit. She is determined to avoid him, except when she is at her weekend drill, in hope that he doesn’t recognize Lieutenant Keaton as the woman with whom he made passionate love. This plan seemed easy enough until he moved in next door.

Captain Gabe Jenkins is a self made billionaire, construction is his business, but the National Guard is his passion.

As he also deals with trying to find his one night stand lady, who he thinks might have been "the one."

Love & War by Elle James and Delilah Devlin
ARC for honest review with no compensation
Love & War is the 4th book in the Texas Billionaire Club while part of a series it is a standalone. What a great laugh out loud funny, sparring pets (cat and dog), comedy of misinformation and romance to boot… book by these two sister authors, Elle James and Delilah Devlin.

While out on maneuvers with the guard her new platoon commander shows up (during a rainstorm) she asks to have a truck come get them but her new commander decides to make them do night maneuvers which ends in disaster….she wears her glasses, is kultzy and looks rather homely….that is according to her new commander Captain Gabe Jenkins.
