An Alpha Ops novella by Anne Calhoun, not what I expected. I was expecting the typical shy quiet librarian looking for excitement instead what I got was a emotionally bruised divorcee looking to banish the narcissistic voice of her ex-husband who constantly belittled her and guilt tripped her into getting everything he wanted. I was expecting a alpha hero out to woo the shy but sexy librarian what I got was a emotionally damaged SEAL suffering from PTSD who ended up being seduced by the librarian. I liked it. I'm glad it wasn't what I expected. I enjoyed that the characters helped heal each other and helped them both come to terms with things they didn't want to face. It did feel a little rushed at the end and a little contrived.

Jack Powell left the Navy SEALs because he was suffering from night terrors and hand tremors. He was aware that it could be PTSD even if he didn't show the "typical" symptoms of it. He was seeing a therapist and attending psychology classes and writing a thesis on PTSD. He wanted to understand it fully and figure out how to beat it. He knows he can't be a SEAL anymore but he plans to go into the private sector and get a job that will take him to Turkey.

Erin Kent is picking up the pieces after her divorce she has made a list of things she has always wanted to do but her ex always talked her out of it and made promises he never kept. Even now a year after the divorce she still hears his voice in her head whenever she begins to doubt herself. In a plan to extinguish him from her head she has been going down her list. She went to classes and got her license for riding a motorcycle all she needs now is the motorcycle. But the salesman is trying to talk her out of the Ducati (LOVE DUCATI) and on to a smaller Honda Rebel. Lucky for Erin that Jack just happen to be there to pick up a part and helped her get it through the sale man's thick skull that she wanted the Duc.

Erin previously turned down Jack for a date because she wasn't ready to start dating again, but that didn't stop her from taking him home and sleeping with him. From there they start a precarious sexual relationship. They both know that the relationship wont last forever Erin is still trying to be her own person and Jack is preparing to move out of the country. But sure enough thy both fell in love but can Erin get over her fears enough to move forward with Jack in a life together.

Overall this was a very smokin' hot book, very hot. I liked the characters well enough and the sex in the library was pretty good.
