Pickett Sessoms is a family therapist that knows how to deal with the demands of military families. Pickett has seen through her patients what can happen to military families when they don’t take enough time for themselves and the families that are left behind.

Jackson “Jax” Graham that can be put into any situation and know exactly what to do to take care of his men and get them home safely. The one situation that has him completely baffled is how to take care of his four-year-old son now that his ex-wife is dead. Now he has to find a way to juggle his career and the demands of a child who doesn’t completely understand what is going on in his world that has been turned completely upside down with the death of his mother.

Pickett knows she can help Jax but he will have to be willing to make some changes in his life if he wants a chance to help his son and be more involved in his son’s life now that his son only has one parent left. When Jax gets stranded with his son Tyler in a hurricane Pickett takes them in even though she feels it isn’t the best idea to do so. It also gives Pickett perfect opportunity to show Jax just what he needs to know to help his son who is a scared and lonely little boy. Together Pickett and Jax learn more than they bargained for when an outing turns deadly and Pickett learns first hand exactly what being a SEAL is and Jax learns that sometimes the toughest SEAL needs some help.

This is a great story with a very hot hero that is a SEAL. For those that enjoy books with the hero showing the best of the military this is one to try. The story is well written and shows the steps Jax has to go through to get to the place he wants to be with his son. Pickett is a strong heroine that never felt that way until she met Jax and watching the transformation she goes through in the story is at times emotional but ultimately very rewarding. The characters are believable and the story line is very engrossing and worth the time it takes to read.

I give this one 4 red roses
