Loving a military man isn't always easy and sometimes living with him is impossible..

Deke Berg has been in love with Sam for ten years. From the moment they met, they could never keep their hands off each other. Their marriage was volatile and short-lived, and they were both much too young. Now, though, Deke knows what he wants in life, and Sam is at the center of his plans. Unfortunately, Sam is wary of marriage--especially to a man who broke her heart.

Sam has always loved Deke. Being a former military brat, she thought she'd been prepared for life as a military spouse. But the long separations were hard, especially dealing with the stranger who returned home. When he refused to get help, she left and always regretted it. She doesn't know if she can handle that pain again, but after spending a night together in Hawaii it's impossible for her to ignore him.

Old prejudices and painful memories aren't easy to overcome, but there is one thing Deke understands: Sam is the woman for him and he will do anything to prove his love and win her back.

Warning, this book includes: Another hard-headed military man, a woman with a wicked temper, a trip to Hawaii, one Hell Week, a few embarrassing moments, nosey brothers, and two people too stupid to realize they are perfect together. It's Harmless and military, so for your own safety make sure you have ice water nearby. The author assumes no responsibility for overheating of the reader.

REVIEW:

Deke Berg has loved Samantha for the past ten years. He loved her when they were married and he loves her even though they are divorced. Despite everything, fate keeps bringing them together. At a wedding for his SEAL buddy, Deke runs into Sam and they can't keep their hands off each other. Deke knows that he has to get Sam back and when the opportunity to take a command in Hawaii how can he resist? Though, it would’ve been nice if he told Sam his plans because she has something to tell him and he’s gone MIA.

I love Deke. I loved Deke when I first read about him in Infatuation and I think he may be my favorite Melissa Schroeder hero. (though I am a fan of Rome from ALH Submission) And Sam, I really liked her even though she was a bit dramatic at times but I totally understood.

These are two of the most stubborn people in the world. It is so clear that they love each other but they just don’t understand that they are meant for each other. It took all my effort not to yell at them and tell them to stop being ridiculous. I wanted Sam to let go of all her insecurities about not being able to make a marriage work and I just wanted Deke to stop trying to make plans without talking to Sam. I really just loved it though.

Favorite Quote:
She looked at him and smiled. It was insane and it was really stupid, but just like always, she couldn’t resist him. All of the barriers she had built crumbled when she saw the curve of his lips. There was something wrong with her—with both of them—but she didn’t care. Without a word, she threw away all her worries and took his hand. He raised it to his mouth. Keeping his gaze on hers, he touched his lips to her fingers. “Come with me.”
Overall:
Melissa Schroeder’s A Little Harmless Military books are fabulous. There are shorter than the other Harmless books and focus on the relationship rather than adding the element of suspense. There are just two people trying to find a way to love each other. Oh, and we can’t forget the sexy time. I cannot wait for more Harmless Military books! I hope we get more of Sam’s brother Mitchell.
