KylaThis is an Adult romance novel recommended for ages 18+ due to sexual content and mature subject matter.
Since rumour got out that I cheated on an American War Hero, nothing's gone my way. Because of him, Hunter Sykes, I lost everything, five years ago. I know I’m just as guilty but if it weren’t for him, I could be working for NASA right now instead of being stuck in this dead-end town. Of course no one blamed Hunter, because Hunter was dead.
But now that I’ve moved on and have a new life with Liam, an ex-Marine, my past has returned to haunt me. When I heard he was still alive and spent the past five years as a P.O.W., I just had to see him with my own eyes.
I shouldn't be surprised. Even after five years in a prison camp, he's still going around, trying to screw everything on two legs—including me.
All I want is for the past to stay buried, but as long as this cocky bad boy is walking around town, that’s never going to happen.
I was pretty sure I was going to die in that P.O.W. camp, so I started thinking about regrets and all the people I hurt and bullshit like that. It took a while. There were a lot of regrets. But even with the nozzle of an AK pressed against my skull, I just couldn’t convince myself that screwing Kyla Rose was one of them. I wanted it to be—I wanted to regret it so badly. I’d just watched a bullet end her boyfriend, my best friend, Sammy Boy’s life. The least I could do was regret screwing his girlfriend the night before we shipped out.
Now that I'm back, the military won't let me talk to her, and she’s hell-bent on staying as far away from me as she can. But her and I've got unfinished business, and I'm not letting anyone stand in my way.
In one night, Kyla and Hunter did the unthinkable. Kyla cheating on her boyfriend and Hunter slept with his best friends girl. Worst, the night before they are deployed! Then, one day they get news that Kyla's boyfriend, Sammy, passed away along with Hunter. With this, her secret is out by someone she thought she could trust. Everyone in her town treats her like an outsider. Then years later, news gets out that there are survivors and Hunter is one of them. Now, Kyla is dating someone new. But when Hunter returns home, things change. And Kyla's boyfriend is not really happy.
What I enjoyed most about Hunter: A Bad Boy Military Romance is how Kyla and Hunter have known each since childhood. They're friendship is unbreakable and they both care for each other. Hunter is very protective of Kyla and always has been into Kyla. I loved how the author ended this story.
I've never read anything from this author before but I do love her writing. The twist and turns were awesome and I need more from her. Read this book if you love a good military story.
