MY BAD RELEASES ON DECEMBER 4th!
Hoax knows two things very well.
One, he’s not relationship material. Two, the nurse that treats him for erectile dysfunction is the most beautiful thing he’s ever seen, and practically has ‘the marrying type’ stamped on her forehead.
Does that stop him from wanting her? No.
Unfortunately, he learned a long time ago that Army Delta Force and long-lasting relationships don’t go hand in hand.
But beautiful hazel eyes, curly blonde hair, and the prettiest lips he’s ever seen play havoc with his resolve, making him forget his earlier convictions.
All it takes is one teeny, tiny kiss for every shred of control he has to disappear, along with the problem in his pants.
Soon he finds himself doing things that he knows that he shouldn’t. He doesn’t know that he’s found the woman that’s meant to be his. Nor does he realize that her father is the man he’s idolized from the moment he joined the army at the age of eighteen. Because, maybe if he had, he would’ve tried a little harder to ignore the pull he felt between them instead of making her his the night before he deployed for six months.
He also might’ve tried a little harder not to knock her up.
I snorted. “It’s definitely not for the faint of heart, but when I went into it, I found a place in the world that was all mine. A place where there were other kids that didn’t have their parents there either. And when I turned eighteen, I joined the army and then never looked back.”
“You want to do it for the rest of your life?” She guessed.
“Yeah,” I answered. “I do.”
But if there was one person in this world I’d give it up for, it’d be you.
I didn’t tell her that, though. We were too new. She wasn’t ready to hear the depth of emotion that I was feeling for her.
She’d run, and I’d have to chase her to get her back.
I wasn’t sure she was ready for my kind of chasing, though.
“So the point you were trying to get across as you explained all of that was that you’re married to the army, and that you want me to know that no matter what I say or do you’re not leaving it.” She sobered.
I shook my head. “No, I’m just telling you that it’s important to me but…so are you.”
She softened at my words. “I’ll be able to deal. I won’t go out and shag ever single man that points his penis in my direction while you’re gone.”
“Shag?” I laughed. “Who says that?”
“Me!” she narrowed her eyes.
“And you just said you’ll wait…is that what I heard?” I asked.
She nodded. “I’ll wait…as long as you give me a good enough reason. You have to do a lot of convincing in between today and when you leave next week. I need to have a lot of memories to remember why I’m waiting while you’re gone.”
