Need You For Always
(A Heroes Of St.Helena Novel)
by Marina Adair
Emerson “Emi” Blake dropped out of culinary school to care for her ailing mother, but she has bigger dreams than running St. Helena’s most popular pita cart. First on the menu: upgrade to a gourmet food truck. A new part-time job as a personal chef will definitely provide the funds, but it also forces her into close contact with her one and only one-night stand, Dax Baudouin, who’s daring her to try a second taste.
Former army Ranger Dax has a clear mission: come home, get healed, and get gone. Yet Emi’s tough-girl exterior and hidden soft side are even harder to resist than her mouthwatering baklava. After years of battles, he knows better than to try and rescue anyone—not that she’ll let him get close enough to try. Truth is, Dax is starting to think that Emi’s the one person who can save him…if he can just persuade her to give him another shot.
This was a really good read for me. It had a good story flow and I loved the main and secondary characters. Emi's dad and sister bring both tension and humor throughout the book and I found that I often wanted to spank or hug one or both of them. The author gave us a strong heroine that was also vulnerable without being whiny or wimpy (I hate when the heroine is weak and needy). And I just love Dax. His personality was so fun to read. He was funny, strong and sweet. This was a new to me author and I can easily recommend her to you all as an easy fun read. Enjoy :)
