Marina Adair
Montlake Romance
Trade Paperback

     Emi is a very responsible person. Since her mother died she's had to be. Emi's father can barely take care of himself, let alone her six year old sister. He's incapable of picking up Violet after school. So when the principal calls, Emi drops everything to go pick up her sister. Violet, wearing her wings and insisting that she's a fairy, has thrown glittery fairy dust... again. Emi doesn't have time for romance, let alone sex. Except for a one night stand in San Francisco.
     Dax was that one night stand. Although he and Emi are from the same town, they didn't think that they'd see each other very often. Dax is an Army Ranger. He's constantly being sent from one hot spot to another. They might see each other every few years when Dax visits his family. Then he's injured and moves home to recuperate.
     Now Dax and Emi see each other every day, and he is loving it! She's enjoying it, too, but Emi doesn't have time for a relationship. Finally Emi decides that she will make time for a short term, no strings attached affair. But the casual sex soon becomes something more. How will Emi survive when Dax deploys again?
     This is the second in a series. It can be read alone. It's a very enjoyable book.
