Review: Infatuation: A Military Romance by Melissa Schroeder

To prove her love and save her man, she has to go above and beyond the call of duty.

Francis McKade is a man in lust. He’s had a crush on his best friend’s little sister for years but he has never acted on it. Besides that fact that she’s Malachi’s sister, he’s a Seal and he learned his lesson with his ex-fiancé. Women do not like being left alone for long months at a time. Still, at a wedding in Hawaii anything can happen—and does. Unfortunately, after the best night of his life, he and Mal are called away to one of their most dangerous missions.

Shannon is blown over by Kade. She’s always had a crush on him and after their night together, it starts to feel a little like love. But, after the mission, Kade never calls or writes and she starts to wonder if it was all a dream. Until one night, her brother Mal drags him into her bar and grill and Shannon gets the shock of her life.

Kade isn’t the man Shannon knew in Hawaii, or even the last few years. Losing a friend and being injured, especially one who had never felt so vulnerable. He still can’t shake the terror that keeps him up at night. Worse, he is realizing that the career he loves just might be over.

Shannon is still mad, but she can’t help but hurt for the man she loves. He is darker, a bit more dangerous, but beneath that, he is the Kade she's known for so many years. When he pushes her to her limits in the bedroom, Shannon refuses to back down. One way or another, this military man is going to learn there is no walking away from love—not while she still has breath in her body.

Warning: This book contains two infatuated lovers, a hard-headed military man, a determined woman, some old friends, and a little taste of New Orleans. Of course, there is a Dom who wants to be in a charge and a sub who wants to challenge him. As always, ice water is suggested while reading. It might be the first military Harmless book, but the only thing that has changed is how hot our hero looks in his uniform—not to mention out of it.

Kade aka Francis McKade, is a seal who has had a crush on his best friend's sister for many years. But if he has learned one thing, it is that your friend's little sisters are off limits. That is until, a Hawaiian wedding has brought them together. Shannon has had a crush on the big, strong, military friend of of her brother's for a long time. Whenever he so much as looks at her she melts on the spot. She sees heat in his eyes but he has never acted so she decided to take matters into her own hands. One night in a Hawaiian hotel room will change their lives forever, oh so they thing, until Kade is called away on one of his most dangerous missions yet. After loosing all contact for 4 months, Kade returns, and is not the same man he was when he left. Now it is up to Shannon to put the peices of her lover back together again.

This story is an excellent addition to the Harmless world. Kade is...sexy...to say the least. He is alpha, dominant, tortured, and also very sweet. He is loyal to the core and will protect those he loves with his dying breath. I absolutely loved him and truly felt sorry for him. Shannon is no softy either, she is confident, powerful, and will not let anyone tell her what to do. She was the perfect heroine for Kade. She did not let him sulk and forced him to face his demons and heal.

The plot was amazing and flowed very well. You got to see characters from the past and also got to see some secondary characters that we have met in the past. Even thought this is a separate series the story rang true to the other Harmless books and is connected very well while still being held separate. I loved how you could almost feel the emotion while reading. The chemistry between the characters was explosive and you will not be disappointed with the sex. It is burning up the sheets HOT! I cannot wait for future installments in this amazing and exciting world that Melissa has built for us. 

Kudos to you Melissa for another great story!
