Jonathan Kelly had planned for a week of fun with the boys before heading back to Afghanistan. He never expected to fall in love.
Naturally beautiful, and funny, Emily wasn’t like any woman he had ever known. She brought a smile to the face of everyone that met her. To Jonathan, she was perfect. Pure light. He knew the day he met her that he had met the only woman he would ever love.
Emily Jacobs wasn’t prepared for Jonathan to walk into her life. She wasn’t ready to have this man rock her to her core when nearly every other man in her past had been such a disappointment. The instant connection she felt with this handsome, kind Marine was unlike anything she had ever experienced.
Emily wants nothing more than to give herself to him, but can she get past the barrier that could keep them apart?
She has a secret so big that she’s sure it will shatter everything they have together; this rare connection that they’ve forged in just one short week.
So Emily is left with one of the biggest decisions of her life.
Trust him or walk away?

After I finish my rant his face slowly breaks out into that beautiful smile of his, dimples and all.
He then shakes his head and his face grows serious when he states, “First, I do want to make one thing clear. We are exclusive. When we agreed that it would be you and me for a week, we may have said no expectations but that did mean there would be nobody else for either of us this week.” He says this while pointing back and forth between us. ”JUST. YOU. AND. ME.” As he finishes his statement he puts his forearm on the table, leans toward me, lifts one eyebrow and looks me dead in the eye as if to dare me to disagree with him. I simply nod my understanding
“Second, you are too cute when you’re jealous.” The smile and dimples that light his face say just how pleased he is with himself.
And…enter blush. “I am not jealous, it’s just basic girl-code. She broke it and her tip will reflect it,” I say matter-of-factly as I pretend to look over the menu so I don’t have to look at him.
“Gracie,” he demands in the lowest, sexiest voice I have ever heard. He waits in silence until I look at him. “I only see you. Since the first moment I laid my eyes on yours in Ole’s, it has only been you.”
The passion and intensity of his words flip me inside out and I’m so glad he can’t feel my internal quivering. “Okay,” I barely get out on a whisper.
“Good, I’m glad we’re on the same page…”
