boy, did she get one! How was she to know the brooding stranger who rocked her

Where to start on this!?!? This is my first book by Karen Rock and I have fallen in love with her writing style! I absolutely was pulled in from the first page and had this quick read finished in just a few hours. It was gripping, full of heart and emotion, and what you come to expect in a romance;lots and lots of smoking hot passion and you get the picture.
This is a story of two people who have lost someone. Cassie lost her Coast Guard swimmer brother in a tragic accident a year ago and is determined to work with his crew. By joining on in the medical field, she gets assigned to his former unit. It’s what she doesn’t expect, Mark, that blows her away. Mark blames himself for loosing one of his closest friends and crew last year and has never found a way to move on. His first rescue mission back brings him toe to toe with the very confident and determined Cassie. What neither of them was looking for, just might be what the other needs to heal from the tragedy they both Grier were over. Mark is very domineering and total alpha once his switch is flipped. He struggles with his guilt and feels it better to punish himself than move on and seek happiness with Cassie. This story is exciting, dangerous, tragic and very sexy! A great mix of emotions was evoked in me reading their story. Now I can’t wait to go back and read more of Karen’s work.
