As part of the 64th Aggressor Squadron, Major Ryan “Fang” Haverty flies like the enemy to teach Allied pilots how not to die. The glittering excess of the Strip can’t compare to the glowing jet engines of his F-16. But a sexy, redheaded waitress in seamed stockings? Now “she” gets his blood pumping.
Cassandra Whitman’s good-girl ways haven’t earned any slack from her manager ex-boyfriend, or prevented a bad case of frazzle from holding down two and a half jobs. She sure wouldn’t mind letting the handsome Southern charmer shake up her routine.
Their wild weekend lives up to Sin City’s reputation. Especially when they discover a matched passion for roleplaying. For Cass, it’s an exciting departure from her normal, shy persona. But for Ryan, it triggers memories of a time when his fetish drove away the woman he loved-leaving him reluctant to risk a repeat performance.
Except Cass refuses to settle for ordinary ever again. She’s about to show the man with hair-trigger hands that she’s got a few surprise moves of her own.
A beautiful beginning to what seems like an amazing series. I always love to read romance novels featuring our military men. They are truly heroes. Double Down was well-written and executed beautifully. The story shows us what love is all about. Give and take, trying to make yourself better for the one you love.
Ryan is scared to admit to his fantasies because of being rejected for them in the worst way. Clare is scared to stand up for herself and do what makes her happy in her life. Clare forces Ryan to see nothing is wrong with his fantasies and Ryan pushes Clare to make her dreams become a reality. The sad thing is they almost loose each other doing that.
I was so glad that Jon and Leah pushed Ryan to go to Clare’s show. I didn’t know if he would ever get his head out of his ass and go on his own.
