The men in Nicole McLaughlin’s Man Enough series are tough Alphas devoted to serving their country and the women who love them.

National Guardsman Aiden King has been attracted to Hannah Walters for a while, but he never made a move because of her close relationship with his best friend. But when circumstances change, Aiden is surprised when his friend gives his blessing. Problem is, there’s a reason he’s still alone after all these years, and as much as he wants her, that secret keeps him from acting on his desires.

Hannah has finally decided to wait for the kind of love you read about in books and see in movies. After her failed engagement, Aiden’s unassuming support has become a touchstone for Hannah. It soon becomes apparent that he may be exactly the kind of man she’s been looking for. But the closer they become, the more he keeps her at arm’s length.

When Aiden suggests a road trip to take Hannah’s mind off her troubles, the two of them go on a journey neither one expected. She just hopes that the final destination is them together for good.

 

My Thoughts:

This convoluted tale of a dumped fiance and a man with an abused past carries us back to some of the characters in the first book I read in this series “Should’ve Been You”.

Now we are treated to Aiden and Hannah’s story.
This tale carries the couple on a road trip to pay a surprise visit to Aiden’s mother who he hasn’t seen since she abandoned him to his Grandmother when he was very young. Aiden’s grandmother has recently died and this was the catalyst that brought this couple closer. Although they both have been attracted to each other for sometime.neither one has acted on their attraction.

Will this journey to his past lead to the end for them as friends or to something more intriguing?

I gave this mostly sweet romance 4.25 of 5.0 stars for storyline and character development and a sensual rating of 3 of 5 flames.. Aiden’s abused past has prevented anything more than a heated kiss between these two prior to this trip.

I received a complimentary digital ARC of this book by invitation from the publisher to read and review.
This in no way affected my opinion of this book which I read and reviewed voluntarily.

Publisher’s Description:

“Katy, your triplets have completely won my heart!” –Mia Sheridan, New York Times bestselling author

From the New York Times bestselling author of The Blueberry Lane series comes a new trio of romances featuring the Haven triplets!

Rory Haven and Brittany Manion knew one another as children…
…but it’s been a long time since their childhood summers at Summerhaven.

The Havens weren’t the children who attended exclusive Summerhaven Camp in Center Sandwich, New Hampshire. They were the children of the owners, expected to “pull their weight” and absolutely forbidden to fraternize with the paying guests. But that didn’t keep Rory from having a quiet, unrequited crush on gorgeous, popular, insanely-rich, Brittany Manion for three tortuous summers.

When all-grown-up, recently-engaged Brittany books the off-season summer camp for her upcoming spring wedding, she immediately recognizes Rory as the scorching-hot boy who wouldn’t give her the time of day. Meanwhile, Rory, who senses that Brittany’s nuptials are less about Mr. Right and more about Mr. Right Now, launches the fight of his life to win the heart of the girl he’s always wanted.
