Already a fan of the K2 Team series but I think this one might be my favorite! Jamie Turner carries a boatload of guilt and regret. Of course, rather than face his demons, he tries instead to live a life of good, kindness, loyalty, and unencumbered by drink, smoke, or foul language. You got that right…this man does not cuss. He says things like ‘blue butter’ and “pink pikes’…yep, you read that right. However, the more he’s around the beautiful, not too bright, trouble with a capital T, Sugar Darling, the more dollar bills go into his swear jar because “Saint” is starting to lose his control. Sugar Darling carries secrets too…big secrets! Sugar’s not her real name, and she’s far from not too bright but if she’s going to stay safe and hidden from an abusive and insensitive, thieving and murderous husband, she has to play the game. When she takes a temp job at K2 Special Services, she likes it a lot more than working at the Booby Palace so when Maria offers her a full-time job there, she can’t be happier especially since there’s a member of the team she can’t seem to get out of her head. Getting involved with any man is dangerous enough, and somewhat terrifying after what she’d been through as Rodney’s wife but there was something, about Jamie Turner, that kept drawing her to him. Sugar is far from what Jamie believed his ideal woman but there was just something, about her, that called to him. So when trouble started brewing and it seemed to circulate around Sugar, Jamie was determined to keep her safe even if it meant he might be the one to hurt her in the end. Even as he couldn't resist her, he wouldn’t allow her to get too close because everyone who gets too close to him gets hurt, or dies. What he begins to wonder is whether she might just be the one to save him. I love these two characters. I love their strengths, their vulnerabilities, their baggage, and their interactions. I love that Jamie is tough as nails but teddy bear gentle. I love that Sugar is way smarter than anyone has any idea, especially Jamie, but that she plays it down so brilliantly and humorously. I love the honesty that exists between these two even while they are holding back truths and lying to themselves about what they want and how they feel. Sandra writes full-bodied characters but Jamie and Sugar are my favorite ones so far. Yes, I know I said that about Jake and Maria but then again, I might say it about the next pair too. Sandra Owens gets better with each book. Her stories are unique, suspenseful page-turners, with team chemistry, humor, and most of all, falling in love romance. There are times when this one is corny funny but also runs to a darker side that I truly appreciated in Jamie and Sugar’s story. Even when Sugar decides to take off on her own so as not to endanger her new friends, she learns the greatest lesson regarding loyalty among friends and family. As Logan Kincaid reminds her more than once, K2 takes care of their family and Sugar is now family. I highly recommend FALLING FOR HER, book three in the K2 Team series by Sandra Owen, not because I love the series but because this story is about strength, self-reliance, unselfish loyalty, and perseverance when it seems like there’s no escape. Take a ride with a man who thinks he deserves nothing and a woman who feels like nothing worthy of a good man, and fall in love. ***print copy provided by author in exchange for an honest and unscripted review.

Sugar Darling is sweet, fun, flirty and without a care in the world. Well, that's what she wants everyone to think. The truth is that Sugar very smart but has been on the run for the last couple of years from the very people who should have cherished her but who abused her and kept her captive, forced to assume fake identities to keep herself off the radar. Sugar has never had positive experiences with any males in her life, so her first instinct is to give the men of K2 a wide berth, but she has huge crush on ex-seal and K2 operative Jamie Turner even though he can't seem to stand her. Jamie is on a journey of atonement for his youthful transgressions and the resulting fallout. He doesn't drink, smoke or swear and he definitely avoids sweet women like Sugar. Too bad for him, resistance is futile against the force of Sugar's appeal but will Jaime let go of the past and move on with his life with the vibrant Sugar? Can he get her to share her secrets with him? Or will he let her go when her past comes calling? I enjoyed reading FALLING FOR HER and liked how easy it was to relate to the characters, including the secondary characters. I really liked Sugar and watching her throw Jamie off his game was so much fun. I love how patient Jamie was with her as she explored her sexuality for the first time and for someone who grew up the way she did, I think that how she went about getting her freedom was remarkably smart, except for her refusal to confide in Jaime and accept his help. The story started out quite light and enjoyable and the first half of the book had me laughing at Jamie's creative curses, Sugar's mixed up metaphors and how both he and Sugar danced around their attraction for each other. The second half was quite dark and painful as the secrets came to light and it becomes a race against time for Sugar to stay ahead of her pursuers. Even though she tried to run away, Sugar was unable to shake off Jamie and his team. I loved how they all came together to help her and I really loved the friendship among the group. I enjoyed the mystery and romance and liked that one did not overshadow the other, even though I felt the sex scenes were a bit too many and skimmed over some of them. FALLING FOR HER is fun and intense and I highly recommend it. Disclaimer: I received this book for free from the Publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Another great story in the K2 series that has romance, suspense, and a colorful cast of characters! From Jamie with his made up curse words to Sugar’s botched metaphors, this book had me laughing while anxiously turning the pages to see if and how these two could find a happy ever after. Jamie and Sugar seem to be so opposite from one another but underneath it all they really have a lot in common. They have both taken on personas and adopted rules to help them recover from the pain of their past. Jamie has some strict rules he follows to keep him on the straight and narrow while Sugar has a wild side that seems to have no boundaries. What is undeniable is the attraction that simmers between these two and the sparks that fly every time they are near one another. Sugar seems to find a way to get under Jamie’s skin and make him break his rules, and as much as Sugar tries to keep pushing Jamie away, he quickly works his way into her heart and makes her feel safe. As much as they tried to deny what was happening between them, it was clear that they really were perfect for each other and just what the other needed. I loved watching the K2 team come together to help Sugar deal with the issues from her past – there’s nothing like having a group of well-trained, alpha men around to help you out when you need it – and boy did Sugar need help! It was great to visit with the characters from the previous books – watching them all interact and catching up with their lives added to the story. There is such great comradery and friendship between the men and women of in this series that they really feel more like a family than a group of people who just work together. I really enjoyed this book and just loved all the characters – and I’d be remiss not to mention Junior the cat! The plot was well-developed and I felt that the issues from Sugar’s past were handled well from a romance standpoint. This is another wonderful addition to the K2 series that I would recommend to anyone! I received a copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley for an honest review.

Jamie is met at the airport by Sugar Darling. He was not happy about that even though he was attracted to her. Sugar was fascinated by Jamie, but she felt Jamie had taken an instant dislike to her as soon as they met. Jamie worked with K2 Special Services. He was also an ex-SEAL. Jamie kept a very tight reign on his life. After one tragic day in his life, he totally remade himself. Yet, Sugar made him want to act like the old him. This was an excellent story and plot. The twists and turns throughout the book were excellent. The changes both main character went through were great to read. The other characters were also great. I highly recommend. **I received an ARC of this story in exchange for an honest review**

Falling For Her was a great read. How can you not enjoy a book when the Hero/Heroine names are "Saint" Jamie Turner and Sugar Darling!! Total opposites, Jamie, he is a do it by his rules kind of guy and Sugar's no way is she letting a man tell her how to do things kind of woman. Their chemistry is off the charts!! A fun, heartwarming and suspenseful read that will keep you turning those pages! I received an ARC from NetGalley and Publisher for a honest review.
