This Story Is Flirty

Publisher's Summary

Riley Callahan's plans to reveal his secret feelings for his best friend are derailed when his life is drastically altered in Afghanistan.

Watching the love of his life fall for his brother was enough to send Riley straight to boot camp. But over a year later, he's officially a marine, and Beau and Paige are no longer an item. When Riley's tour in Afghanistan is up, he intends to confess his feelings to Paige and win his best friend's heart once and for all.

But all that changes when an IED takes the life of a comrade and leaves Riley an amputee. Now he's heading home, injured and troubled. His plans to win Paige are a distant dream. She deserves so much more than the man who's left. All he can do now is put some healthy distance between them. But upon his return, he discovers his family has arranged for him to stay with Paige.

Paige is a nurturer at heart and happy to take care of her best buddy. By all appearances Riley is adjusting miraculously well to his disability. But as the days pass, Paige begins to see that the smiles and laughter are just a mask for the pain he's hiding. To make matters worse, her job is in serious jeopardy. The animal shelter that she's poured her heart into has lost its funding, and she has three months to come up with the money needed to save it.

As the weeks wear on, Paige's feelings for Riley begin to shift into uncharted territory. Why is she suddenly noticing his arm muscles and the way his lips curl at the corners? Will she be able to deny her feelings for another Callahan brother? And will Riley let his heart heal so he can let Paige in?

a cute best friends to more story

More than a year ago, Riley Callahan had left home to serve his country...of course he had joined the military for the wrong reasons. Riley left home because he was in love with his best friend Paige...the same Paige that had been in a relationship with his older brother. Then just before Riley shipped out, Paige and his brother broke up. His plan then changed, he would return home and profess his love, except an IED took care of that. Now Riley is back, living in Paige's house, and dealing with severe PTSD. Will there ever be more for Riley and Paige?
Cute story about star crossed best friends and their journey to their forever.

Not My Favorite

I love the Callahan brothers, and was excited to get to Riley’s story. I knew it was going to deal with Riley and Paige based on books one and two. I have loved everything I have read from Denise Hunter, but this one fell a little flat. This was my least favorite of the series. I just never connected with the characters or their story. This was still a sweet romance, but I just expected more. It just felt different than the other books I have read by the author. I felt bored and was forcing myself to finish this one, which I have never had to do before with DH.

enjoyable

i loved this series. it was more a slow paced book but that ok. the only reason i didnt give 5 starts was because i was very disappointed in the change of the narrator. she didnt seems to have the energy the other one did in first 2 books. but because i enjoyed books one and two so well i finished up number 3 too. thanks

Very nice

The book had a good story line. The reader's voice was kind of flat but I liked the accents she used.

A great finish to what was a captivating series.

Really enjoyed the third book in the series, no I have finished it it is sad to say goodbye to these characters. I was a bit disappointed however that the narrator changed for the third and final book, due to getting used to the previous narrator in the last two books, was a bit disappointed by the narration in this one. She did a good job but don't think she brought the characters to life in the same way as was done in the previous two books. However did not take my enjoyment aware of the book itself and still deserves a five star. This is an offer I will definitely be reading more of.
