Synopsis on Goodreads:
Eli Strong got out of the military and all he wanted to do was get better. He never expected that the officer he was living with would have a daughter who tested his honor.
Maggie Drummond has been moved around more times than she can count, and starting at a new high school sucks. But when a wounded Marine comes to live with her and her dad, suddenly Maggie figures out what home is.
She’s forbidden fruit, and he’s trying to not to taste… But desire can only be denied for so long. Circumstances keep pulling them back together, and something truly unforeseen happens. Overnight, Eli becomes a guardian and Maggie his ward.
Will Eli keep his hands off Maggie? Will Maggie like it if he doesn’t? Will the two of them break the law because it feels so good? Only one way to find out!
Warning: This book will make you ache in the best way possible! It’s so sweet it’s disgusting, and yet we just can’t stop. It’s a coming-of-age story that’s just what the author ordered. So eat up and enjoy!
The clear message of the story is FAMILY is not about who’s biologically related to you and it can be found in anyone, even in broken people.
Eli and Maggie have their romance, it was forbidden at first being Maggie underage and Eli living under the good graces of her dad. I did expect this book to have lots of steamy scenes just as Wrapped in My Wife did, but this was slower and more story driven. It also contains two stories! Oh the second one was pure joy to read though it was hard to imagine that guy with that girl but since I read those kinds of stories too I was able to look past it.
