Sergeant Oliver Martinez joined the military to serve his country—not plan parties. But after a run-in with his commanding officer, Oliver is suddenly responsible for the Alpha Dogs Training Program’s upcoming charity event. Worse, he’s got to work with the bossiest, sexiest woman he’s ever met—who just happens to be the general’s daughter.

When it comes to military men, Evelyn Reynolds is not interested. And with the opportunity to launch her new PR firm at the charity event, she doesn’t have time for some sexy, arrogant jerk with a hero complex. Evelyn is determined to keep things professional—if only she can ignore how Oliver’s muscles fill out a t-shirt and the infuriating way he makes her heart pound.

But when tempers flare and a scorching kiss turns into so much more, Oliver and Evelyn will have to decide if this attraction is forever…or just for now.

I love Cody Gary's books. This one sounded like it was right up my alley. I love military romances and I love romances that involve the characters having pets. Unfortunately I just didn't love this book.
Don't get me wrong, the book was very enjoyable. I've just read other books by the author I've loved more.
I had a hard time feeling the connection between Oliver and Eve. Yes I got that they were attracted to each other but I guess I wish more time had been spent developing that relationship. Everything just felt like it was happening too quickly.

Overall, this was a good quick read and I can't wait to read the author's next book.

An obsessive bookworm, CODI GARY likes to write sexy small-town contemporary romances with humor, grand gestures, and blush-worthy moments. When she’s not writing, she can be found reading her favorite authors, squealing over her must-watch shows, and playing with her children. She lives in Idaho with her family.
