From Wall Street Journal and USA Today Bestseller Vivian Wood
His best friend’s little sister is about to get something… BIG.
Henry Wyatt is big all over, ripped as sin, and fresh out of the Navy SEALs. When he decides to go to his best friend’s cabin for some downtime, the last thing he expects is to run into her, naked and tempting him in ways he never could have imagined.
Ellie’s his best friend’s little sister and he’s never seen her like that. Little Ellie is all grown up, with a body that begs to be touched.
There’s no way Henry should be looking at her like that, or thinking about how her body would sway just so if he turned her over and took her from behind. She’s almost ten years younger than him, and besides that, she’s Eliah’s little sister.
She’s off limits. Period. Until Ellie reveals that she’s never been with a man before, and suddenly all Henry can think about is being her first. Hell, he’d be the last man she was ever with, too… But Ellie has her own set of reasons why that could never happen.
When Henry sets his mind to something though, there’s no stopping him… and little Ellie doesn’t stand a chance.
4 Hot Navy SEALS Stars!
This was a deliciously sexy, sweet, fun, romantic story and one I thoroughly enjoyed. I finished it in one setting and couldn’t put it down until I got to the HEA I wanted so desperately for Henry and Ellie.
Told in alternating POV’s, Ellie has been in love with her brothers best friend most of her life. But Henry is thirteen years her senior and never saw Ellie as more than his best friend's much younger sister, even after a failed attempt on Ellie’s part to get him to notice her as more.
But years later, Ellie is all grown up and she’s running from a scandal set in motion by her cheating fiance. Hiding away in a cabin in the mountains is just the relaxation she needs ... until Henry shows up looking for his own escape.
Henry, suffering PTSD after his stint in the SEALS, is looking for peace and quiet. Remembering the family cabin he and his best friend Eli, used to retreat to, he goes looking for that peace in a remote place where he hopes he can come to terms with his life. But what he didn’t expect to find was a gorgeous and forbidden temptation waiting for him when he arrived.
These two were SEEEEEXY! Their bedrooms scenes were SCORCHING HOT! Yum! Henry’s reluctance to bed his best friend's younger sister added loads of butterfly inducing sexual tension! And the way Henry was dealing with his PTSD added genuine emotion to the story. I loved how open and honesty Ellie was when facing Henry’s PTSD. She was kind, understanding but also a little hesitant because she realized she really didn’t know Henry. But after they both succumb to what’s brewing between them, their chemistry EXPLODED! And whoooha!! Did I mention it was scorching hot?
The Wrap Up:
I loved the writing. I loved the story. And I loved the family dynamics at play, especially when Eli finds out what’s been happening between his baby sister and his best friend.
Brothers-best-friends-little-sister is one of my favorite tropes and this one was just a joy to read. I read it while I was on my own getaway, in my own little cabin in the woods and it just added to the whole experience. This was a new-to-me author but one I’m definitely reading more of, especially if any of her other stories are as sexy and well put together as this one.
