She fell for the nice guy, but will she fall for the real guy?

Ex-ballerina Ellie Bell has twenty-four days left until her self-imposed man-less year is up. No more falling for the wrong kind of guy—charming, sexy, bad. Why can’t she find someone sweet like Charlie Johansson, her soldier pen pal? His e-mails meant the world to her, and she can’t stop thinking about him…until she meets Hunter, whose muscles and cocky smile threaten to have her relapsing.

Before Charlie “Big Game Hunter” Johansson’s last tour of duty, he’d gone through women like crazy. But after connecting on a real, emotional level via letters with his best friend’s sister, Charlie’s ready for a relationship—with Ellie Bell. But then her brother introduces him as Hunter. Proving he’s no longer a player by becoming Ellie’s dance partner for an Army benefit seems like it could convince both siblings he’s changed, but the harder he falls for Ellie, the harder it is to come clean. Can he convince her to fall for the real him before it’s too late?

Reviewed by Kelly.

Now that’s what I am talking about!! A slow build up of a relationship, chemistry, pretty clean, and a hunky soldier to boot! It’s a perfect sweet read! I was sucked in from the beginning and I was done in no time. I can’t resist a good soldier story!I think I have another auto buy with Ophelia London.

Ellie has been corresponding with Staff Sergeant Charlie “Big Game Hunter” Johansson by email. They started emailing when Sam was seriously hurt while deployed. Hunter is Charlie’s nickname in the military. It had to do with his womanizing ways. But Charlie was with Sam when he was hurt and he has changed. He bears more of himself to Ellie in those emails than he has to anyone. But there is no way Sam would let Charlie anywhere near his sister, so he stops writing. He is at home right now and while hanging out with Sam at the Warrior Station (WS), a place not funded by the government where soldiers can go to heal and hang out, Ellie shows up to see Sam. Sam out of habit introduces Ellie to Charlie as Hunter. Sam doesn’t know about the emails and Ellie only knows Hunter by the womanizer stories Sam has told her. Ellie has no idea that he is Charlie, the guy she has feelings for.

So, what is Hunter to do? He cringes at the name of Hunter. He doesn’t want Ellie to know him like that. He doesn’t tell her right away who he is. Then Sam finds out and pretty much tells Charlie to stay away from Ellie and not to tell her. Hunter tries to abide by Sam’s wishes, but he just can’t seem to stay away from her. Hunter even volunteers to help out at the WS just to hang out with Ellie who has also volunteered.

Ellie, who has heard all the stories of Hunter, wants to stay away from him after all the stories she heard and that she is on a self imposed ban of men for 365 days. This ban is because she always picks the wrong guys and gets hurt. You know- cheaters and liars. She is at the end of the year with twenty some days to go. But the more time she spends with Hunter, the more she is confused. She feels like she is cheating on Charlie and she starts to see Hunter as a great guy.

But as time goes on and they get closer, it becomes harder to tell her the truth and Hunter feels more guilty. So you know when she finds out, things will not go well.

This story has family, it honors the military men and woman who serve this country, lots of chemistry, dancing, a soldier doing the tango and some Dirty Dancing, tons of little girls in tutus, a restored hot car, did I mention chemistry?, some sweetness and a whole lot of sexy.
