It's Like That
Callie Alexson has hidden from men her entire life. Shy and self-conscious, she would rather watch from the sidelines than risk being hurt or rejected. When she’s obligated to attend a friend’s pool party, Callie finds herself compelled to shed her shyness beneath the penetrating scrutiny of a stranger.
Chris Paulson is a force to be reckoned with and has dedicated his life to his career as a Navy SEAL team leader. He doesn’t have the time or patience to deal with a love life. That is, until he finds a goddess reclining next to a SEAL team member’s pool. In a single day, she will change everything. The focus he’s always centered on his job shifts to the blue-eyed brunette who makes his heart beat faster.
When Callie and Chris come together everything seems to fall into place. An explosive passion ignites, unlike anything either of them has ever known. They find in each other a love they never could have hoped for—and certainly were not looking for. But when Chris disappears while on a mission, Callie is left behind to face the heartbreak. Will he return to her a broken man? And if he does, can Callie be what he needs to banish the dark demons that haunt his soul?
