A sexy category romance from Entangled's Brazen imprint...

Some lines are meant to be crossed...

One explosive device was all it took to turn Holt Cunningham from ass-kicking Marine to IT technician. Hell, he's still not over it. So when the cute little strawberry blonde at the bar asks him to kiss her, Holt can't resist the temptation of a sexy distraction. Before he knows it, she's blown his mind...and then skipped out the next morning.

Lydia Thomas never expected things with Holt to go quite that far, but oh, it was worth it. After being far too good for way too long, she was ready to be bad. Except that there's that tiny detail that Lydia kept to herself-Holt just spent the night doing naughty things...with his best friend's little sister.

One night isn't nearly enough. But with his friendship on the line, how far will Holt go in order to claim what's his?

Holt Cunningham has a lot of baggage. After an explosive device turned his world upside down, he gave up being a Marine and became an IT Technician at Shillings. Even though he tries to live a normal life, nightmares and headaches would still visit him at times. Meeting the strawberry-blondie who asked him to kiss her was unexpected, so is the chemistry that they shared with the kiss. He knew he had to have her. Indeed, she knocked him off his feet, but the next morning – she ran away.

Lydia Thomas never expected for things to go that far with Holt. But it was worth it! She had been on the right side of tracks all along, and she wanted to know what it’s like to break the rules. One thing she withheld from Holt is that tiny little fact that she was his best friend’s little sister.

Will one night be enough?

Lines are crossed, and friendships are in jeopardy – will Holt and Lydia last?

Lydia might have been a little too fast in falling in love according to her brother, but I like the fact that (1) she’s a theater nurse (LIKE ME!) and of course (2) she cares a whole lot for Holt regardless of his baggage and his moods when he’s having a headache. She understood him well. As for Holt, I knew he meant well when he tried to break her heart, being noble and all, but he could have asked her to save all the trouble.

It's a story of love, and second chances. Of finding love when we least expect and with the person we didn't expect it with. I had so much fun reading this book. I finished it in one sitting. Another short, sizzling, satisfying read from Diane Alberts!
