Tour Stop: Review/Giveaway ~ CHICA BELLA by Carly Fall

Landon “Blackhawk” Walker is ready to get out of the Navy SEALs. He has seen and done enough, and can’t wait to get to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico where three tasks await him: get back into civilian mode, take a boat out to the El Arco Rocks, and win back the heart of the woman he lost because of his career.

Maya Gonzalez has tired of the heartbreak that comes with Landon’s deployments year after year. When he walks back into her life, she cannot deny her heart, despite her reservations.

As they lose themselves in each other and the beauty of Cabo, their passion is rekindled once again, but Maya knows that one phone call means deployment for Landon, putting an end to their reunion, and possibly their relationship.

Review ~ 3.5  Stars

This was a great quick read. Very sweet and a little steamy. Perfect combo in my world.

Landon is a Navy Seal and is more than ready to leave the job he has dedicated himself to for the past 17 years. It's time for him to settle and put down some roots. He is determined to find the girl he left behind and persuade her to forgive him for leaving her so many times. Not only just leaving, but never calling her during his tours. Maya sat around waiting and worrying while he was away. The more she worried the angrier she got.

"It's safer for her, and for me, if no one knows where I'm at. I couldn't talk to her, but I never stopped thinking about her."

Even knowing the silence was for security reasons, it cut her very deep. She was terrified to open herself back up to him for fear of him leaving her again. 

"I'm so angry that I haven't heard from you in almost a year, but yet I'm happy to see you. I want to run away, but I want to be with you."

I'm not sure I could live the military lifestyle. Not knowing if the one you love is injured or worse would be so horrible. I totally get why she was so angry at him, however I felt she forgave him a little too quickly. Although this was a novella I think there needed to be a lot more groveling on his part. I was missing more of a build up to them "rekindling" their romance. Otherwise this was great read.
