He’s wanted her from the moment they met.
Former Navy SEAL and security expert David McIntyre has been in love with Jade from the moment they met. Unfortunately for him, that was the week she married his best friend. When she lost her husband, David kept his distance. For years he’s stayed silent, giving her time to mourn. When he discovers she’s dating again, however, all bets are off.
Unfortunately for him, she belonged to another man.
After being widowed at a young age, Jade Hadley is tired of her celibate existence and is determined to add a little romance and sex into her life again. When her deceased husband’s sexy best friend admits a longtime attraction, her entire world is thrown off kilter.
Now someone wants her dead.
When someone targets Jade and they’re thrust into a deadly situation, the attraction between them goes incendiary. Sex definitely isn’t their problem. Convincing her what they have together isn’t purely physical, however, is. It might even prove to be a bigger challenge than trying to keep her alive. (Thanks to GoodReads.com for the summary)
My Thoughts –
Tempting Target is a suspenseful, sexy, wild ride. It’s about overcoming grief and long-time friends finding love with each other. It was also easy to read and fast paced.
Jade is finally ready to move on with her life. She’s lived through a tragedy and sees that life continues on. David is so alpha male. He sees Jade finally at a turning point in her life and wants to be the one she moves on with.
I enjoyed this story a lot. The characters were wicked hot, the lovin’ was steamy and all on top of a good plot line. I liked the fact that the author didn’t use cheesy sex talk or descriptions. (One of the worst things to me is when I say out loud while reading – who would say that?) Great job the author on Jade and David’s story.
