She's one of the few…
They're two of the proud…
They're all Marines…
Retreat Hell! She Just Got Here is the second in the "Always a Marine" 1NS series. The nice thing about this series is that you don't have to read them in order to know what is going on. I enjoyed this novella. All three characters were searching for something and were able to find it in each other. I loved the chemistry between Jazz, Logan and Zach. The love scenes were well written and very steamy. The ending left a lot or room for more adventures with the trio. I hope Ms. Long visits with them again!
Writing Retreat Hell! She Just Got Here was a different experience for me. First, it was a planned ménage by two of the three involved. Second, all three participants are Marines. Third, they are all looking for this one night to make a difference in their lives.
Jasmine Winters, known affectionately as Jazz, is a Gunnery Sergeant. She’s a woman’s Marine. She knows how to command men and get the job done. But she’s been a Marine so long that some days she also forgets she’s a woman. When she expresses a hidden desire to have a ménage in a conversation with her mother--her mom suggests the exclusive online dating site to her: Madame Eve could help her daughter achieve this dream.
Zach and Logan approach the night from different directions. Best friends since childhood, the guys have shared women before. After being seriously wounded and burned, discharged due to medical disability and dumped by his fiancé, Logan’s not in the best head space. Zach is trying to get his friend back, so he arranges a ménage to get him back on the horse, so to speak.
I never expected to grow as attached to these three Marines as I did. But one by one, their honor, their pride, their strength, and their commitment not only to their country but also to each other really pulled me in. Have you ever wondered whether one night could really make a difference in your life?
