That Summer Night by Barbara Freethy
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Barbara Freethy is another favorite author of mine. I enjoy this series so much and I have been looking forward to reading about Shayla.
I was definitely entertained by the story and with Shayla and Reid but there was just something missing for me with them and I still cannot figure out what is was. I liked the book but I didn't love it and that is what's bothering me because the story had basically everything that I love. I should have been gone over Shayla and Reid (especially Reid)but I just couldn't connect with them. They were both good characters and had interesting back stories and the whole story line about Robert missing and them having to find him, loved it and I was pulled into the story right from the start. I think I'm going to have to read it again and then see how I feel after that.
I'm anxiously waiting for Colton's book because I'm dying to find out the big secret with the Grandmom!! I'm also so excited that Burke's book is after Colton. I have been waiting for Burke's story since the beginning. I actually think he is my favorite Callaway and I haven't even read his book yet. lol :)
From #1 NY Times Bestselling Author Barbara Freethy comes the sixth book in the Callaway family series featuring love, mystery, and adventure!
Once Reid Becker was the best of the best, an elite soldier whose career ended abruptly in a mission gone awry. Derailed after a decade of intense focus, Reid is spending far too much time in his best friend's bar. Then Shayla Callaway walks into his life with a desperate plea for help. How can he resist a beautiful blonde?
The last thing Shayla Callaway was looking for was trouble. After years of medical school, she is months away from finishing her residency when a stint with a research team lands her in the middle of a game of drugs and money, and the only person who can help her is a burned out ex-soldier with a hot body and a cocky attitude.
Reid and Shayla have always put duty and career first. But as the danger heats up, so do the summer nights. Suddenly, it's not just about saving the world but about saving each other and a love they never expected …
