Overview

Haunted by her past of murder for hire and skinning people alive to gather vital intelligence, Kat Boudreaux wants nothing more than to hide away in her sprawling mansion with the love of her life--her daughter. But then Private Gump and his band of Bubbas land on her doorstep. Her brother and his unit of misfit Marines insert themselves with the misguided need to protect her from someone hell-bent on vengeance.

For Shooter, it's love at first sight, though he wouldn't be caught dead admitting it. When Kat is nearly fatally injured while saving his life, he knows he's found the woman for him. Together, they fight side by side to get to the bottom of the threats. Kat's daughter is kidnapped and this ex-assassin mom reverts back to old habits to save her. Saving Kat and her daughter is easy, taming the shrew that is Hell Kat Boudreaux might mean losing his favorite appendage.

    Never Say Just is a book that has to grow on you.  I struggled to get through the first part of the book.  The storyline began with a brother returning home from the marines with several of his marine friends to spend the summer with his sister.  Shortly after the brother enters the storyline he sort of disappears and fades into the background.

    The female character finds out that their story about visiting for the summer is a ruse and they actually are there to protect her and her daughter from a person bent on revenge because of her previous career as an assassin for a government agency.  How realistic is it that this woman marries a billionaire after a career as an assasin? She decides to play along with her brother and even seduce one of the marines to obtain information.  At this point I felt the plot was too farfetched.  How would one logically jump from meeting the marines and finding out their true intent to deciding to seduce one of them?  This is particularly unbelievable because she was also gang raped, beaten, and cut previous to their visit which is the reason they make her so uncomfortable.

    Despite the far fetched plot, much shaking of my head, and the many times when I closed my Kindle and thought I couldn't go on the characters begin to resonate with me.  One of the marines apparently fell in love with her on first sight, they loved, lost, and came back together.  It was an anti-climatic, predictable happy ending.

    If you can get past all of the mistakes (spelling and otherwise)

    If you can get past all of the mistakes (spelling and otherwise), it's a fun story with brazenly unrealistic characters and a cheesy sense of humor (although I suspect the author was tying to come off as having a biting wit, it just doesn't work, and I found myself laughing out loud for all the wrong reasons). Perfect for reading in a hospital waiting room because it's a distraction that can be easily forgotten. Although I hate to judge a book by its cover, this one fits the writing perfectly: absolutely ridiculous while trying to appear tough. Breasts spill over the tops of designer gowns and the constant brand name-dropping grew as tiresome as the forced relationship between the two oh-so-hard main characters. Full disclosure: I did not purchase "Never Say Just." I found a copy of it in a Las Vegas ER. Maybe the next patient to come along will love it. Probably not.

    Great book

    I loved this book. Not a sappy love story, but plenty of romance and lots of action. I would definitely recommend it.

    This book came to me as a request for a read/review. I went through three books the other night looking for one that "worked." As many know, I don't do a review if I can't at least give it a three and if I can't finish one I don't ever mention the title. Then I opened this one. First, I must confess that I love military men in stories. Flawed yet heroic this cast of characters didn't let me down nor did Ms. Harper's caustic yet humorous writing style. This one was done in two days and I'm wishing there was another ready to take its place. If you are looking for a contemporary romance that isn't squishy and plotless check this one out.
