really liked it

Jena Boudreaux hasn't been honest with her family and friends. She has told them that her frequent trips are for the Navy Reserves. Not true! She really has been doing missions for the CIA and the most recent one in Paraguay was almost her last - literally. She nearly died. That's when she contacted her childhood buddy and current "friends with benefits" lover, Jeb DeVilliers to ask him as her dying request to tell her family she loves them. Jeb wasn't about to give up on Jena and accept her impending death without a fight. Yes, she had been kidnapped by drug dealers but there had to be a solution. Jeb managed to extract her from her kidnappers with US government help. Now they are back in Tampa and things have changed between them. No more "friends with benefits" action, maybe not even friends. Jeb is hopping mad that Jena never told him about her CIA activities. He knows she really couldn't tell him about it but - still... He thought Jena needed him and here she is a big, bad CIA agent who really needs no one. Jeb just can't get his head around that. Jena, on the other hand, feels confused about how to proceed with Jeb. She really cares about him. Jena's family rallies around her to help her establish her dream, a social services agency, which helps keep the nightmares away and gives her less time to worry about whether or not Jeb cares about her.

Bayou Vows by Geri Krotow is the third book in her Bayou Bachelor series. Krotow has a real talent for telling a story with an entertaining storyline as well as expressing the emotions of her characters. The relationship between Jena and Jeb is very complicated but the author expressed this in a way to not only keep the reader engrossed but also to feel the main characters emotional pain. I loved following Jena and Jeb's trip to the HEA.
