He's never met a challenge he couldn't take...

Alexis Yeung did everything right....only to watch everything go horribly, horribly wrong. Broken and angry, Alexis high-tails it to Europe, determined to face the world on her own terms and without consequence. Which includes a mind-blowing night with a sexy, scarred stranger.

Except, embittered former pararescuer Luke Jackson isn't exactly a stranger. He's supposed to keep an eye on Alexis without her knowing. Ending up in bed together was definitely not the plan. Now he's chasing her (admittedly hot) ass across Europe, a game of cat and mouse that always ends with the two of them tangled up in the sheets.

Something in their scarred, damaged souls calls to each other. And God help them, the sex in unbelievably hot. But if Alexis discovers who Luke really is, he'll lose the one thing that makes him feel whole...




My Review

I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review. 

It's not that I didn't like Alexis in Falling for His Best Friend, but she wasn't my favorite. I knew that she was dealing with a lot and needed to figure things out for herself, so I looked forward to reading her book.  

Alexis has left her hometown quite abruptly. Of course those closest to her are worried so they send someone to look after her. The thing is that person, Luke Edwards, is supposed to stay in the shadows and do his job without Alexis knowing about it. The thing is that everyone underestimated her and she catches on pretty quickly. I like that Alexis kicked Luke's ass (yes, he was injured, but she still managed to get the jump on him) and had no problem putting him in his place. What follows is something that NO ONE thought

In all honesty, I wasn't expecting this to be such a beautiful book. I figured it would be extremely hot (and it was), but I wasn't expecting Luke and Alexis to connect on the level that they did. They consider themselves to be extremely damaged individuals. So damaged that they both feel like they will probably never find someone who will love them for who they are. So when they find each other and make that amazing connection, it scares the crap out of both of them. Especially Alexis. Despite that fact that she had no control over what has happened in her life, she has been told repeatedly that she is not enough. But with Luke she feels like she is enough, which is what makes Luke's betrayal so devastating. They both saw each other as the people they were on the inside, not just the damaged facade everyone else saw. 

I wasn't sure how Katee was going to handle Alexis' story, but she definitely did it justice. Luke was exactly what she needed to get over hang ups. I love when the big, bad, Alpha male turns out to be a softie and that's what Luke was...a big old teddy bear. 

This book was a great addition to the series and if you have read the previous book, this is a must read. 



EXCERPT 

She pointed a shaking finger, and he followed the line down to the… He blinked, part of him wondering if this was some kind of joke. “A spider. You screamed bloody murder because of a tiny little half-drowned spider.”

Alexis made another frightened noise that was just this side of a shriek. “Kill it. Oh my God, just kill it.”

Even though she was obviously afraid, he couldn’t help a little snark. “Don't move. I think it can smell fear.” He hurried back into the bedroom and retrieved a boot. One well-placed smash later, the threat was eliminated—and his boot was wet. “He’s gone. You’re safe.”

“Thanks.” She looked around the bathroom as if expecting more spiders to pour from the vents or something.

Luke shook his head, not sure if he should hug her or laugh his ass off. “Princess, you kicked my ass and laughed at me afterward. You scaled a twenty-story cliff. How are you possibly afraid of a little bug?”

Her shiver was so violent, it made the rings on the shower curtain rattle. “You’re a grown man. Grown men do not scuttle.” She shuddered. “Spiders scuttle. It’s freaky and unnatural.”

Holy shit, she was downright precious. He grinned. “The distinction is noted.” And so were the soapsuds sliding down from her hair, between her breasts, and over the long line of her stomach. He wanted to trace that same path with his tongue, and take it one step further to drape her leg over his shoulder so he had nothing stopping his ability to taste her there.

Suddenly, he wasn’t feeling all that tired at all.

“If you could see the way you’re looking at me.”

“Like what?” He already knew. He just wanted to hear her say it. He didn’t think he’d ever get tired of hearing filthy words come out of Alexis Yeung’s mouth.

She licked her lips. “Like you want to take me up against this shower wall.”

Christ, but he did. Luke didn’t say anything, though. Not yet. He just let himself look his full, tracing her body with his gaze, from her pale pink toenails to her long legs, the tempting vee between her thighs, her nipples that practically begged for his mouth, and finally to her challenging hazel eyes. She was the most perfectly shaped woman he’d ever seen, and the fire of her personality only made her more attractive.

“Are you going to stand there and stare or are you going to lose the underwear and join me?” The tone of her voice said she didn’t think it was much of a decision, and she was right.



See where it all began with book 1 of the Out of Uniform series, In Bed with Mr. Wrong.
