Back to You: A Sweet, Friends-to-Lovers, Military Romance (San Diego Marines Book 1) FREE FOR A LIMITED TIME!
United States Marine Spencer Hawkins doesn’t do relationships. Not even with his best friend Ellie Burton, the girl who has always been there for him, even in his darkest hour.
Ellie wants a stable life and a white picket fence. She definitely doesn’t want to get involved with Spencer, who has no interest in settling down.
As Spencer starts his journey as a new Marine, Ellie doesn't hesitate to support his dream, even if she's struggling to find her own. But after one kiss changes their relationship forever, can they ever go back to just being friends?
Back to You is a sweet romance suitable for all ages.
Lance Corporal Matthew Mills returned home from his first deployment with more than just a bullet wound. While he knew that injury would heal, he feared the invisible ones never would. He couldn't trust his own mind anymore and the only way to keep Olivia safe was to push her away ... maybe for good.
Olivia wanted nothing more than to stand by her husband while he battled PTSD. If he needed time and space, that's what she'd give him. But how long was too long? Just when she was about to lose hope, fate and a few meddling friends stepped in.
A week in the woods at Big Bear Lake promises relaxation, fun with friends, and adventure. Without the pressures of the outside world, Olivia hopes she can convince him that their love is worth fighting for. And as much as it scares him, Matt can't help but want to let her.
Away from You: A Sweet, Second Chance Military Romance is the second book in The San Diego Marines Series. If you enjoyed Back to You (Spencer and Ellie’s story), be sure to watch them play matchmaker with Matt and Olivia!
Cooper sighed and lowered his forehead to mine. “I’m really getting sick of people interrupting us when I’m trying to kiss you, Angie Black.”
“Then stop trying to kiss me.”
Marine Staff Sergeant Charles Cooper is desperate. When he idiotically made up a fake girlfriend to appease his grandmother, he hadn’t counted on Grandma Jean flying halfway across the country to meet her at Christmas. With only a few days until the big family dinner, he needs a girlfriend. Fast.
Angie Black can think of few people who get under her skin more than Cooper. Unfortunately, she has to tolerate him since their best friends are married to each other. When Cooper asks her to be his fake girlfriend for a family dinner, Angie agrees only because she could use a fake boyfriend herself. Her entire office is invited to the wedding of their boss, and he happens to also be her ex.
Their fake relationship seems to solve both of their problems. That is, until unexpected feelings arise. With his deployment looming, will they figure out that they're meant to be before they find themselves half a world apart?
