A clinical psychologist has to re-evaluate her expectations for a mate when she begins to fall for an ex-Marine who is the exact opposite of what she's looking for.
After watching his Marine Corps career disintegrate following an injury, Landon Donnigan is settling into civilian life. With a good job and a loving though imperfect family, he’s feeling good about his future, though he misses the military life he loved and expected to carry him through retirement. He’s not looking for commitments of any kind, spending time at the gym and dating casually. So he’s a little stunned when he meets Dr. Ava Rosenthal, the gorgeous clinical psychologist who’s determined to keep him at arm’s length, but can’t fight their blazing chemistry. She’s been trying online dating, looking for Mr. Right—cerebral, slight, low-key—to no avail, so giving in to sexual attraction with Landon won’t lead to anything real. He’s so totally not her type! Except that every minute she spends with him makes her realize that maybe her type is Landon. Which goes against everything she thinks she believes yet may be the answer to a happy future. At first afraid of her feelings, Ava is forced to reconsider when Landon challenges her assumptions at every turn and demands that she face her emotions and admit they were made for each other. Harte is known for sizzling sex scenes in her contemporary romances that feature everyday characters (as opposed to billionaires) and a sprawling cast of secondary characters who add conflict and depth to the story as well as hints at upcoming directions for the series.
