Desperate to keep him... 

I've finally gotten everything I ever wanted: love, freedom, happiness, and, most importantly, Finn. Our love is everything I expected it to be and more. We've finally found each other, but the world seems determined to tear us apart. We thought my father was the only obstacle between us, but now it's the military. With Finn’s departure looming, we’re squeezing in every moment together before we run out of time.

Trying to make every moment count… 

Being Carrie’s bodyguard was one thing. Being her boyfriend is another. Every day she’s mine is a day the sun shines in my life. Yet our time together is running out. Her father will never think a tattooed Marine will be good enough so I’ll do with whatever it takes to be worthy of her love. But the road will take me away from the girl who makes me feel alive--the girl I can't live without.

Time only gets us so far...

Kim's 4 star review

Desperate to break free…

I've spent my entire life under my father’s thumb, but now I'm finally free to make my own choices. When my roommate dragged me to my first college party, I met Finn Coram and my life turned inside out. He knows how to break the rules and is everything I never knew I wanted. A Marine by day and surfer by night, he pushes me away even as our attraction brings us closer. Now I am finally free to do whatever I want. I know what I want. I choose Finn.

Trying to play by the rules...

I always follow orders. My job, my life, depends on it. I thought this job would be easy, all the rules were made crystal clear, but when I met Carrie Wallington, everything got muddy. She's a rule I know I shouldn't break, but damn if I don’t inch closer to the breaking point each time I see her. I’m ready to step out of line. And even worse? I’m living a lie. They say the truth will set you free, but in my case…

The truth will cost me everything.

This book begins right where Out of Line ended. They mystery of the phone call is revealed. Finn and Carrie finally have bared their secrets and are truly together. But now they have to face hiding their relationship from her powerful overprotective father who hired him as her bodyguard. And also deal with the possibility of Finn having to leave for deployment or assignment.

"This was a pattern in my life. The second things started to look up for me, shit always blew up in my face."

They seem to be on borrowed time. Their fragile new relationship is tested. Their feelings are intense so the the thought of separating or loss is difficult and frightening for them both. They are trying to learn to truly be a couple during these stressful times and it is challenging and complicated. 

Together they are seemingly opposite as she is a young college student and wealthy politician's daughter. And he is a tattooed, motorcycle riding, Marine/bodyguard. But they truly fit together and have a strong connection and chemistry. Finn is protective, caring, and devoted. Carrie is coming into her own, fighting more for what she wants and who she wants to be, and trying to come out from under her father's thumb. And Finn is trying to make plans for the future to make himself feel more worthy for the politician's daughter. Even though Carrie accepts him just like he is.
"Fuck, I love you. So damn much it scares she shit out of me. I 've never been scared of anything before. Guns. Surfing. War. But now I have the biggest fear of all--losing you."

But in trying to secure a future for them, will Finn ultimately lose it all?

This is the second book in this series and again even though it gives us some closure to the current story line, it also leaves it open for more trials and tribulations in the next and final book expected Spring/Summer 2014. This was a fast-paced story told in both points of view with romance, secrets, danger, and suspense. It was sweet, sexy, heartbreaking, tense, and emotional. The characters are truly likable and I am totally invested in their outcome. These two deserve a happy-ever-after!

Thanks to Jen McLaughlin for providing me with an arc in exchange for an honest review.
