Sheriff John Henry Harrison didn’t even know the old McAdams place had been sold, so when he receives a disturbance call, he rushes right out there, positive it’s just a bunch of kids causing a ruckus. What he discovers there changes his life in ways he never could have imagined.
After losing his wife to cancer, Charlie Pennington was just trying to find a peaceful place to settle down with his young kids. He never imagined that buying the old McAdams homestead would bring the sexiest lawman he had ever seen into his life.
When trouble arrives at Charlie’s door in the form of a custody battle for his kids and a drug lord bent on revenge, Charlie is shocked when John Henry steps right in to help. But even with his former marine buddies at his side, Charlie isn’t sure he can keep everyone he loves alive. Sending them to safety seems like the best choice, until John Henry refuses to go.
When I’m in the mood for a hot and steamy easy-reading romance, Stormy Glenn is always a great choice for me. She writes erotically charged, action filled stories with interesting heroes that always give me a couple of hours of reading pleasure.
The blurb does an outstanding job at describing the story, so I won’t rehash it. What I will say is: I really enjoyed watching the steamy attraction and hot chemistry between Charlie and John Henry sizzle and burn as the story progresses. I liked the banter the two men had together as well as the way each man really learned to trust in each other. Both men could be tough as nails one moment and sweet and tender towards each other the next. I liked how they formed a true friendship between them and enjoyed watching them fall in love.
There is also a lot of action in this book. Because Charlie is an ex-Marine whose duty was being head over a team of Special Ops, he’s made some dangerous enemies. I enjoyed watching him and his ex-team of Marines as well as John Henry and his crew come together to fight the bad guy. All in all it was a quick and fun read and I highly enjoyed it.
John Henry’s Beautiful Charlie is an action filled, erotic and fast-paced read from start to finish. It is the first book in the Special Operations series, and I can’t wait to read the next book! Recommended!
