The Rangers of the 1st/75th fight hard, train hard and play hard. They are physically strong and mentally tough, disciplined and courageous. But all their military training hasn't prepared them for falling in love.
Rule #1: Military and matrimony don’t mix.
But if there’s one person Staff Sergeant Danny MacGregor would break all his rules for, it’s Bree—his first friend, first love, first everything. Maybe he likes playing the hero. Maybe he’s trying to ease ten years of guilt. Either way, he’ll do whatever he can to help her.
Wish #1: A little bit of normal.
Bree Dunbar has battled cancer, twice. What she wants most is a fresh start in a place where she can find a new job, and where people aren’t constantly treating her like she’s sick. By some miracle her wish is granted, but it comes with one major string attached—the man who broke her heart ten years before.
The rules for this marriage of convenience are simple: when she’s ready to stand on her own two feet, she’ll walk away and he’ll let her go. Only, as they both know all too well, things don’t always go according to plan . . .

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I read this book in two sessions. What a great story, I both laughed and cried. I am an avid reader and this book was a real treat.
Oh, this is when I wish I could rate a book all the way up to 10, because Cheryl Etchison definitely deserves a perfect 10 for Danny and Bree's love story. Once and For All is an awesome, emotional romance. It’s full of high and lows, taking readers on a hold-on-to-your-heart rollercoaster ride. Danny and Bree's romance begins as a friendship. Friends to lovers, and then lovers to enemies. Which then in turn becomes a marriage of convenience, with a forever, happily ever after in their future. Danny and Bree's fiery, passionate romance is an intense love shot straight to the heart. Gorgeous Ranger/Staff Sergeant Danny grabbed my heart strings and the man did not let them go. Bree hadn't seen Danny for ten years. Ten Years since he walked away from her and shattered her heart into a million pieces. And to top it off, she had to find out from Danny's roommate that he had packed up and left college, and most of all left her. Now Danny’s back...the boy she has loved her entire life, and the man she has hated for a decade. The boy she knew is now a man, a very gorgeous man, and she still has no reason as to why he left her 10 years ago, but he does have a proposal for her: a proposal for a marriage of convenience. Danny knows he messed up royally 10 years ago with Bree, the love of his life. Danny has lived with his own guilt and heartbreak for the decision he made, but when he discovers that Bree has had cancer and beaten for the second time, Danny sees his second chance with her. He's not sure what kind of a second chance, but he takes what Bree will give him, and if he can make Bree's life a little better and maybe his guilt, then he'll settle for that. But Danny knows he wants more. Danny and Bree's marriage of convenience is either their second chance for getting it right this time, or will history repeated itself when it comes to these two? I loved every delicious twist and turn with Danny and Bree’s insanely crazy, beautiful romance. I highly recommend Once and For All as a must read.
