TEMPTED BY THE SOLDIER (Falling for You #2) by Nicolette Day
ABOUT THE BOOK: Release Date Feb 24, 2014
When one touch isn’t enough, why resist?
Road trips are supposed to be fun. Or, at least, full of hot sex. For photographer Lilly Grayson, the fifteen-hour drive to her friend’s wedding with Nate Jennings will be neither. Not that Nate isn’t sexy—the man is six-foot-three-inches of mouth-watering Marine. But Lilly’s been there, done that…and he walked away. Now it’s time for a little payback. The kind that’ll make a man desperate for a taste of what he can’t have.
And Nate wants a taste—so badly that he can barely keep his hands on the wheel. But the scars and ghosts of his last tour still haunt him. He can’t give into temptation, not this time. Lilly deserves a whole man—one who can love her the way she deserves to be loved, even if she doesn’t believe it can happen. And that can’t be Nate. Not when he’s leaving again in two weeks, and this time, he’s not sure he’ll return…
REVIEW: TEMPTED BY THE SOLDIER is the second storyline in Nicolette Day’s contemporary, adult, Falling For You romance series. This is Lily and Nate’s storyline. Lily and Nate met one year earlier. Following a night of wild sex and passion, Nate walked away leaving Lily humiliated and not knowing what went wrong. With Nate’s brother’s wedding only a few days away, Lily finds herself partnered for a fifteen hour car ride with the man who broke her heart. Lily is the bride’s friend and official photographer and Nate is the groom’s best man.
The storyline follows Lily and Nate as they struggle with their mutual feelings for one another but feelings that are overridden by Lily’s anger and hurt. Nate is military helicopter pilot whose demons ride him hard. Suffering from PTSD and survivor’s guilt, Nate pushes Lily away at every opportunity until he finally pushes too far.
The relationship between Lily and Nate begins as barely tolerable. With their heartbreaking history with one another, Nate knows not to pursue a relationship with Lily-he is about to be deployed again and doesn’t know if he will return. But the heart only knows that it wants Lily but convincing Nate is another matter all together.
Nicolette Day pulls the reader into a story of heartbreak and mistrust; letting go and moving on; forgiveness and learning to love. We watch as a damaged hero believes he is not worthy of love or forgiveness because of something that was out of his control. Nate will find love when he least expects and his heart will have a place to come home. Day writes a story that will tug at everyone’s heart.
