From the first time I played army as a kid, the military has been my life. As an Airborne Major, I’d led my men through two tours in Afghanistan. But when my father was elected president, I became an even greater target for the enemy—a prize for someone to take out. To ensure not only the safety of myself, but of my men, I got stripped of my cammies, shoved into an Armani suit, and placed into a management position at my father’s company. After years of trekking through the desert with an assault rifle, I was way out of my area of expertise, which my transition coordinator was more than happy to let me know on a daily, if not hourly basis. The brunette bombshell would be the death of me in more ways than one, especially since I hadn’t been with a woman since my last deployment. She’s turning out to be one of the greatest foes I’ve ever done battle with.
In the backwoods Georgia town I was born in, you either married right out of high school or got the hell out of town. I chose the second and never looked back. After graduating top in my class, I started working for The Callahan Corporation. Fast forward five years and I was about to become the youngest female manager in the history of my department. And then all the blood, sweat, and tears I’d put into my career were for nothing when the boss’s billionaire son was handed my position on a silver platter. Not only that, I was expected to help transition him into the job that was supposed to be mine. Sure, he’s easy on the eyes with his chiseled good-looks and impossibly built physique, but I’m not going to let that distract me. I hope soldier boy is good at military strategy because sabotage is the name of the game I’ll be playing.
“Don’t you know how very manly your scars are? A warrior’s body is marred and mangled. It wears the wounds of battle. You have a warrior’s body, and it’s the sexiest fucking thing I’ve ever seen.”
I really like the first book Running Mate, this one is about Barrett’s brother Thorn. He was just as swoony as his brother was.
Isabel and Thorn’s chemistry didn’t spark as soon as I would have liked it to but it was there. I got such a kick out of their meet-cute. The “enemies to lovers” aspect really wasn’t there because he liked her and was faking it and I wasn’t sold on her half either. This isn’t a huge deal but it’s not the typical “enemies to lovers” I usually read.
That being said, I did love reading this book. I’m kinda political nerd so the first book was my jam and this one was sort of that. I just liked these characters and the feel of the book overall. It was sweet, funny, and heart-warming.
