About the Book:

When Marine Sergeant Rob Gentry moves into his apartment, the last girl he wants to date is his new neighbor. Smoking hot and so cute it makes his teeth hurt, she's not his type. Too sweet. Too innocent. Too vanilla. But when her date with an online suitor goes south, he busts into her place to rescue her. Because that's what a Marine does.

The trouble is, now she requires comfort. A safe place to stay the night. Distraction. And by the time he's through owning her hot little body, he discovers a natural submissive, one he's not sure he can ever let go.

**This story was originally published in the USA Todaybestselling box set Hero to Obey.

My Review:

Hmmmm.  Not my usual genre.  But I have to admit that once I started reading I couldn't put it down.  This was a quick read of only 79 pages.... 79 hot pages.

Marine Sergeant Rob Gentry, recovering from injuries incurred in Afghanistan when a bomb killed his entire unit, moves into an apartment building, still licking his wounds and dealing with PTSD.  All he wants is to be left alone.  When his neighbor, a sweet young thing, is attacked by a man she met on an online dating service, Rob swoops in to save her.  From there, things get hot.

Normally, I don't like erotica because most that I have read are all sex and no story.  But as short as this book was, there was actually a bit of a story to it.  And there were tingles.  Yes, lots of sex, but tingles went along with it.  Renee Rose developed these characters quite well.

Not a big plot or big story, but it was okay.  I would give this 3.5 out of 5, but since I can't do half glasses of wine, I'll give it a 4 based on comparing it to other books of this genre.
