Sweet Story, Quick Read

Fall Away - Zoe York

Trick Novak is on leave from his team's latest mission, suffering from Insomnia. The only cure he's yet to find is a night with a woman. When he wakes up next to one whose name he doesn't even remember, he feels kind of bad. As he attempts to leave, he finds out that her roommate, Gabby, is actually the one whose attention he'd actually wanted. Problem is, she wants nothing to do with a womanizer, especially one that hooked up with her roommate. When Trick keeps running in to her, he decides he won't take no for an answer when it comes to going on a date with her. He's just not sure how to get her to fully change her mind about him.
Trick, being the consummate bad boy and right from the beginning, finding someone he seriously wants to pursue, is just really sweet as he tries to win Gaby over. His determination and drive really show as he unwittingly changes his ways for Gaby. I totally understand Gaby's stance on the situation and her reluctance to fall for someone like Trick. Gaby is one that doesn't really put herself out there for people. She's kind of a loner because of her all of her work and dating is just something she doesn't even consider, so Trick's pursuit is something that kind of overwhelms her.
I just loved this story. It was a fairly quick read and really sweet. No huge plot points, but there didn't need to be. I recommend it to anyone that likes contemporary/SEALs books.
