I received this book to give an honest review as part of a blog tour.

I am not too big on the romance books, but I am glad I gave this book a try. Let me just say Aiden is just yummy! Aiden comes back from the army because his mother needs him, but he didn't plan on running into anyone or even staying. But that all changes when his old flame sees him. Stacey never knew exactly why he left, but she has wondered for 10 years! Will he give her the answer she needs/wants to hear? The relationship between Aiden and Stacey gets hot and I love his proposal to her and how she doesn't hesitate on giving him an answer even though she knows she can be hurt again. 
Aiden's background hurt my heart a bit because I couldn't imagine that even happening to him but it did. This is a great reunion story with a love that never ever went away and the fact that it has an army man in it only makes it yummier lol. 
The only problem I have with this story is that it wasn't longer for me, which it was only 50 pages. I do believe I will be reading more from this author and her lovely romance books. 

Stacey knew she should be horribly offended. He’d propositioned her to have sex for the rest of the month and then go their separate ways. But the truth was, the second he’d started talking she’d become so hot inside she could barely breathe.
There was no way to go back in time and fix things between them. No way she would ever find out exactly why he’d left, if there was something she could have done to make him happier. She wasn’t exactly certain she wanted to. When she’d told him his leaving had prompted her to go make her own career, her own life, she’d meant it.
But today he offered passion. They’d been kids together. She’d given him his first kiss. For all intents and purposes, it might as well have been hers. A sloppy kiss-and-run at twelve years old shouldn’t get to count. They’d lost their virginity together, and all of her early sexual education had been found in his arms.
What would they be like now?
She sucked in her breath. “You’re a hard man to say no to.”
“You didn’t say yes.” He took her hands in his. “I need a yes. I can’t leave here with you upset again. I
won’t hurt you again. So, you have to tell me you understand what I’m offering and what I’m not, that you grasp completely I’m not going to be here in March.”
“I’m not a moron, thank you.” She stood up. “And I’m not the head-over-heels-in-love-with-you twenty-year-old with dreams of marriage and Sunday crawfish boils wrecking my brain. I have my own life here. I’m trying to decide if it’s worth disrupting it for you for an entire month of my life.”

She felt him when he moved behind her, his warmth filling her from the outside in. With a quick tug, he pulled her flush against his body. “I can promise you. It’ll be worth it.”

As a teenager, I would hide in my room to read my favorite romance novels when I was supposed to be doing my homework. I hope, these days, that my parents think it was worth it.
I am the mother of three adorable boys and I am fortunate to be married to my best friend. We live in northern New Jersey and try not to freeze too badly during the winter months.
I am in love with science fiction, fantasy, and the paranormal and try to use all of these elements in my writing. I've been told I'm a little bloodthirsty so I hope that when you read my work you'll enjoy the action packed ride that always ends in romance. I love to write series because I love to see characters develop over time and it always makes me happy to see my favorite characters make guest appearances in other books.
In my world anything is possible, anything can happen, and you should suspect that it will.
I'd love to hear from you!
