Book Blind Date #63 The Military Version!
Book Blind Date is something that Danielle from Book Whore Blog and I decided to start after seeing a Facebook post on the Lawrence Public Library Page about a book blind date. This really got us thinking, what if the only thing you new about a book was what the story was about? No character names, no pretty covers to suck you in.
Here's how it works, you know the old saying never judge a book by its cover? Well you won't be able to, for this meme you are going to decide which book you would go on a "date" with based on the synopsis. Names and identifying phrases are removed just to make things fair. The only rule is: No Googling the synopsis, you have to pick a "date" based on what you read below.
Last Week's Blind Dates:
Book Blind Date #1
Subject: Navy SEAL Petty Officer B**** L***
Current Status: On leave
Obstacle: The one girl who was off-limits…
Where Navy SEAL "Bad Ass" B**** L*** goes, trouble follows. Being run out of his hometown years ago for misbehaving with G**** R*****—the sheriff's daughter—was one thing. Now B**** is about to step into real danger. Not the suggestive letters he's been exchanging with G****, but the kind of trouble that can send a soldier home injured and broken inside…
G****'s entire life has been orchestrated by her family. The right job. The right friends. Enough! B****'s return offers the promise of lust-filled pleasures. Of flesh teased and tasted. She's not expecting to find a soldier with distant eyes who has secluded himself from the world. But this good girl knows exactly how to bring a bad boy back to life….
Uniformly Hot! The Few. The Proud. The Sexy as Hell.
Book Blind Date #2
C*** M******** is prepared to give his life to destroy the cartel that killed his lover, but the only way to draw them out is to present them with the perfect bait.
B******* S**** has no idea who her new neighbor is, only that her body is drawn to him in ways she can’t explain, and the danger that surrounds him isn’t the deterrent she knows it should be.
More than fireworks explode between C*** and B******* when she discovers the real reason he relentlessly pursued her, but by then it’s too late, because she’s already been drawn into a deadly game of desire, deception and revenge.
