To Special Ops soldier Dylan Decker, spending a month in his home town of Big Timber, Montana while he recovers from an injury sounds like torture. After ten years as an elite operator, asking him to live a civilian life - even temporarily - is like asking him to live on another planet. All he cares about is getting cleared for duty and getting back to his team. Then temptation appears in the form he least expects it.
Sadie Thornton's life has been on hold since she had to move back to Big Timber to help her ailing father. She can't wait to get back to her life and career in California, away from a father who never got over the disappointment that Sadie wasn't born a boy. Then Dylan Decker, who never noticed her for anything but her brains, rolls back into town. Sadie can't wait to show her high school crush that she's nothing like the girl he remembers.
Dylan can hardly believe Sadie's transformation from the awkward, skinny girl he remembers. But while she's changed in ways that make his hands itch to explore her newfound curves, inside she's still the sweet, vulnerable girl who followed him around with her heart in her eyes. Not the kind of woman who can have a temporary, no strings affair without getting hurt. And right now, that's all he has to offer.
But it isn't long before temptation overwhelms Dylan's good intentions, and what starts out as a casual fling quickly becomes so much more. And when everything falls to pieces, Sadie is the only one who can help Dylan put it all back together.
