Overview

Known to the K2 Special Services team as Romeo, ex-Navy SEAL Jake Buchanan may spend his downtime living up to his nickname, but there’s one woman who sets his heart racing like no one else can: Maria Kincaid. Unfortunately, his boss—her brother—has made it crystal clear that she’s off-limits. Jake doesn’t do commitment, while Maria is the type of woman who deserves a promise of forever. Yet Maria finds herself drawn to Jake, the man who stares at her with a desire she wishes he’d act on.

Still haunted by her horrific childhood, Maria goes searching for the father she’s never met—and stumbles into a nightmarish experience. With her life in grave danger, she reaches out to Jake, her brother’s second-in-command. Jake figures he can help Maria without giving in to temptation. But some things are easier said than done.

This is the first of this series I have read by Sandra Owens,but the minute I picked up SOMEONE LIKE HER I knew I'd be looking for more from this author. These are very strong main characters & especially love Maria who has the brains to be able to keep up with the K2 team members, especially her brother the leader of the K2 team. The fast pace of the book along with the strong characters make it a especially entertaining read. If you like your sex scenes it has an abundance of that as well. Spiced with a dash of suspense and a bit of action and mystery to it makes a good combo. I received this book from goodreads in exchange for a review

The illicit romance with the sibling of your friend always appeals to me but when one of the two is a kick-butt military guy I just can’t resist. There are so many complications that arise out of dating your friend’s sister, but when that friend knows 50 ways to kill you without leaving evidence – well, that makes it even more problematic :) On top of the romance, we get a good deal of adventure and danger as well. Owens does a fantastic job of weaving the two and making them working together to give her readers a complex story. Someone Like Her delivers suspense and edge of your seat moments, mixed with humor and heart-warming emotions. With bigger than life men and the women strong enough to love them, danger and laughter, steam and tears, and a good dose of HEA, The K2 Team series is a must read.

Who doesn't love a man in uniform, especially a military man! But how far is too far when it comes to your boss's family? Will they make or will too much stand in the way? Love and some suspense you can't go wrong! Loved how well written and interesting this book is! *Received for an honest review*

Another great book in the K2 Series! Where the first book focused on Logan Kincaid, the founder of K2, this book focuses on his sister Maria, who we met in the first book when she was entering law school. Although I don’t think you need to read the first book in this series before picking this one up, there is some background information about Logan and Maria’s family that will add additional depth to the story – again, this can be read as a standalone, but having the background was a nice addition to this read. I just love these types of storylines – you have the little sister of the boss/best friend who has been deemed off-limits. You also have a bit of an age difference – not much, but just enough to throw in some situations where worldly experience, real or perceived, or lack thereof, comes in to play. And you have two people who have been dancing around an attraction to one another for some time – of course in Jake’s case, the threat of death that Maria’s big brother Logan has thrown out has been a great incentive for him to keep his hands to himself! Maria was my kind of heroine. She knows when to ask for help, she doesn’t make stupid decisions that put others in danger, and she stands up for herself when she has to. Although she has put herself in a very dangerous situation, to her credit it wasn’t intentional and she reached out for help right away. It was fun watching her spar with Jake and try to get him to see past that “off limits” sign she was wearing. Jake was a great hero. He’s certainly lived up to his “Romeo” nickname, but lately he’s having a hard time enjoying the “Romeo” lifestyle. Of course he knows Maria is off-limits, and not just because her brother has threatened him with death if he goes near her, but also because she deserves more than he can offer her. Of course he can’t deny Maria his help, even if he knows it may cost him his job, and watching him fight that attraction to her made for some fun scenes. In addition to Maria being in danger and following her and Jake’s story, we also get to catch up with Logan and a very pregnant Dani. One of the things I love about this series is the strong family connection between Logan and Maria, and now seeing how that has expanded to include Dani as well. As over-protective as he is, he also wants Maria to be happy and I love the scenes between them as Maria struggles with everything that is happening and her relationship with Jake. I also loved watching Dani keep Logan in line – I love those strong females!  This was a really great read that I would recommend to everyone! I can’t wait for more books in this series – the rest of the K2 team has a great cast of characters that I’m sure have some great stories waiting to be told! I received this book from the author for an honest review.

3.5 ¿ *I received a complimentary copy from the Publisher in exchange for an honest review* Someone Like Her had several of my favorite characteristics, a yummy ex-Seal self-proclaimed anti-commitment man-whore, A damsel in distress type of h (but not a TSTL one at that), and scorching hot sexy times. It’s well written and the pace is good, the balance between action and down time, I thought, was pretty good too. That said, I struggled a bit to keep going on with this book, I’ll confess I read a couple of other books in between and was a little confused at that because I really liked the story and the characters. It just wasn’t grabbing me and not letting go, you know what I mean? I could put it down and not feel the absolute need to get back on it. This could totally be my mood and what I had been reading when I first started it, but I’m glad I persevered. I can’t say I was surprised by the plot twists and their resolution, but it was an enjoyable read and I will definitely be on the lookout for more books from this Author. I’m crossing my fingers to have Saint’s story coming out next… In fact I’m going to check that out right now.

Very enjoyable book! This is the second book in the K2 Team series but it can be read stand alone, although I recommend reading the first to truly understand big brother Logan. When Jake "Romeo" Buchanan receives a call from Maria Kincaid, his boss Logan's little sister (well maybe not so little) he doesn't hesitate going to her rescue. They have always had an insane attraction but he never acted on it because #1 Logan would kill him and #2 Maria deserves a forever guy and he can't give her that. Or maybe..... This book is very well done and I am glad I gave this second one a chance. The pace of this story was better than the first and it had me turning page after page. I definitely recommend this one.

I loved this story! Jake and Maria make me want to fall in love. You need tissues with this one. Maria Kincaid is eager to finish up her law school exams and get to work as a partner in K2 Special Services with her brother, Logan, and the rest of the team, especially Jake Buchanan, the man who makes her blood heat up just being near him. When she decides to hunt down the men mentioned in her mother’s stud book, hoping to find her father, she stumbles into something that her brother cannot be allowed to know about so she calls the one man she trusts to help her, Jake. Knowing Maria is extremely off limits, going to Maria’s rescue isn’t the smartest thing for Jake to do but when he has no choice but to stay with her for protection, he fights an internal battle to keep his hands off her and her hands off him if he wants to survive Logan’s wrath, and keep his job. The only problem is that he discovers Maria is different from every other woman he’s ever taken to bed, and now he isn’t sure he can resist her or even if he wants to. I fell in love with the men of the K2 Team in CRAZY FOR HER by Sandra Owens…Logan Kincaid, Jake Buchanan, and Jamie Turner. We felt the attraction that was happening between Jake and Maria, and already know Logan’s thoughts on his sister being involved with any of his former S.E.A.L. buddies, but especially the one known as Romeo. For Jake, his sister was beyond off limits, she was in locked down mode, and he swore he’d pound his second-in-command to pulp if he ever hurt her. So in SOMEONE LIKE HER, when Maria calls upon the one man she shouldn’t after being beaten up by the man she had hoped was her father, Logan is far from thrilled when he learns the truth. Sorry, I couldn’t help but cheer Maria on as she works diligently to seduce her Romeo/Tiger Toes. Sandra Owens takes us on quite a rollercoaster of emotions in SOMEONE LIKE HER. It’s an action-packed, edge of the seat, steamy hot romance with its share of ups and downs, moments when we laugh and several when we need a tissue. I’d love to give you some examples, but then I’d ruin the story for you. Trust me, if you read this one, you will find yourself trying to read blurry-eyed through sad tears, excited tears, and truly smile inducing happily-ever-after tears. Sandra’s writing is honest and tight. She gives us so much to experience, backstory that pulls everything together but allows us deep within her characters’ minds and hearts so we will feel their joy, their angst and their fears. These are complicated characters, and it’s one of the things, which I love most about SOMEONE LIKE HER. Jake and Maria are perfect together and just when you think Jake is the ultimate hero, it’s Maria who rescues him from the brink of his own despair. I highly recommend SOMEONE LIKE HER, book two in the K2 Team series by Sandra Owens because you will be glued to this story from the first page to the last. It’s an amazing story, which features incredibly three-dimensional characters, and shows us how love can soothe the most pained hearts, boost the most fragile egos, and heal wounds that go so deep, some are hard to find. Read it, even if you haven’t read the first one, I promise, you won’t regret it. ***eARC provided by publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest and unscripted review.

I found this to be a wonderful, at times very humors read that kept me very interested. What I love most about this story was Maria with her sassy ways, her over protective brother who could be a little much at times and Jake aka Romeo aka Tiger Toes who couldn’t make up his mind to what he wanted. Like most men who wanted to hold on to his single life he had a hard time with the idea of love. Once he got it in his head he could be just as overbearing and protective of Maria as her brother. The two men she loved had a few trying times of who was more caveman. Two men who loved her fighting to keep her safe as they danced around who and what was right for her. Maria had a few ideas of her own and isn’t afraid to take charge why she shows the two men she loves a thing or two. The author has a lot going on, that keeps her readers interested. She does an amazing job with past history keeping her reads up to date with what she written in book 1, she never leaves you guessing. What the author does do is get you to want to go back and read book 1. I have not had that pleasure but plan on doing so. I found just the right about of passion to hold my interest without me wanting to skip through pages to get to the action. For me this was exactly what I was looking for in a romance with just enough thrills to keep me turning the page to see what the author had in store for me. This was a book I had a hard time putting down. There is nothing like a seal who is macho, kicks butt and takes no names who has a heart of gold but needs a good women to show him what life is about. A man who does his best to save the women he loves from harm even if that means walking away. Men can be so crazy sometimes that what they think is best for their women might not be. Jake is about to find this out with a little help from Maria and a few threats from her brother. Marie is on the hunt for her father, she is in the wrong place at the wrong time and gets herself into one heck of a mess. She can’t call her brother so she calls his next in command, he comes running to serve and protect. Maria has always has feeling for Jake, Jake is fighting those feelings. His boss has told and all the K2 ex seals his sister is off limits. Some things just cannot be fought when two people are attracted to each other. Things happen when two people are but together and something just can’t be fought. Some things just aren’t worth fight for where other things are. I thought I would laugh myself silly at the love scene where one of the K2 members walked in on them as things were heating up between Maria and Jake. That was just too funny. It isn’t all fun and games. The author puts real issues, pain and hurt into her writing. Some mission go well others go wrong, life’s are lost and some will live to see another day only to feel they have failed. The author gives you a thrilling story where you feel the pain, happiness, love, hurt and sorrow of each character. You feel like you are part of the characters and in the end you have a big smile on your face knowing they have won a bigger battle and have overcome much as they deal with issues and find away to overcome the odds that life puts in their path. For me the author throw in just enough thrills and humor to keep me hanging on to the end as she spins a story that kept my interest until the end. I look forward to reading more from this author. If you are looking for a well told story of thrills and chills with a tough of humor and a lot of love you have found it.
