Francis McKade is a man in lust. He’s had a crush on his best friend’s little sister for years but he has never acted on it. Besides that fact that she’s Malachi’s sister, he’s a Seal and he learned his lesson with his ex-fiancé. Women do not like being left alone for long months at a time. Still, at a wedding in Hawaii anything can happen—and does. Unfortunately, after the best night of his life, he and Mal are called away to one of their most dangerous missions.
Shannon is blown over by Kade. She’s always had a crush on him and after their night together, it starts to feel a little like love. But, after the mission, Kade never calls or writes and she starts to wonder if it was all a dream. Until one night, her brother Mal drags him into her bar and grill and Shannon gets the shock of her life.
Kade isn’t the man Shannon knew in Hawaii, or even the last few years. Twelve hours of torture changes a man, especially one who had never felt so vulnerable. He still can’t shake the terror that keeps him up at night. Worse, he is realizing that the career he loves just might be over.
Shannon is still mad, but she can’t help but hurt for the man she loves. He is darker, a bit more dangerous, but beneath that, he is the Kade she's known for so many years. When he pushes her to her limits in the bedroom, Shannon refuses to back down. One way or another, this military man is going to learn there is no walking away from love—not while she still has breath in her body.
Warning: This book contains two infatuated lovers, some drunken dancing, a hard-headed military man, a determined woman, some old friends, and a little taste of New Orleans. As always, ice water is suggested while reading. It might be the first military Harmless book, but the only thing that has changed is how hot our hero looks in his uniform—not to mention out of it.

Um, hello! It's been a while since I've read a Melissa Schroeder book and well, the hotness has been burned into my brain. My palms were sweaty, my toes tingled and I may have felt the need to drop ice cubes down my shirt but held off since I was sitting on a plane between a woman reading some mainstream fiction and a guy watching Captain America. Uh, yeah.
Rule #1 of Friendship: Never, ever, ever mess around with your friend's sister. Don't touch her, don't lust after her, don't picture her spread out on a bed naked, don't accept her invitation to her hotel room. Just don't.
Well, Kade definitely broke all those rules and then some. He's been moony over Shannon for quite a while now and a wedding in Hawaii gives him the perfect opportunity to explore every single luscious curve of that gorgeous body he's been lusting over. Shannon invites Kade to her room, hoping for something, anything to happen between the two.
Kade accepts Shannon's invite and they spent a night of sultry kisses, sweat soaked sheets and multi-orgasmic sex. Being a Seal, Kade gets called along with Shannon's brother, Mal, on a mission. Shannon fully understands being the sister of a Seal.
Four months pass and no word from Kade. Shannon doesn't want to believe that Kade is over her because she's not over him. He comes back with ghosts he can't seem to shake. The light is gone from his eyes, he's quieter and he feels like he can't be man enough for Shannon. The man who made love to her in Hawaii died along with what went down during the mission.
Seeing Shannon flirt with Deke, one of the guys that was on the mission along with him and Mal, Kade gets jealous and knows he must win Shannon back. No matter what. Starting with dominating her in the bedroom. He loves how she willingly submits to him and Shannon knows that with any other man, she would put up a fight.
Shannon knows that if Kade talked about it, it would help. Instead, she engages in a physical relationship with him and they take it one day at a time. With some pushing from Shannon's mother, her brother Mal and friend Deke, Kade must reassess his feelings for Shannon. She's not like any other woman he's ever known and would he be willing to just throw it all away because he feels like he's not good enough for her?
"Sorry," she whispered.OVERALL: Good gorsh! I was waiting for my screen to melt into a puddle of goo and then go up in flames. Sexy, holy hotness doesn't even begin to describe this book. Thigh clenching pretty much sums it up. This story is a balance of fun, flirty and panty melting sexiness with the realities of war. I love how Ms. Schroeder gave Shannon some meat to her bones and it doesn't hurt that Kade is Australian. (Imma sucker for accents and kept picturing Alex O'Loughlin the whole time.) Bring on Deke's story!
His lips curled up on one side."No problem. Use and abuse me any way you want to."
