My rating: 4 of 5 stars
You can't help but love any story that has a guest appearance with THE Vin Diesel show up personally! Seriously - how cool is that!!!
Captain Frankie Moriarty is an ace rescue pilot -- a hundred pounds of redheaded dynamite answering mayday calls along the northern Pacific coast with her elite Coast Guard helicopter crew. As the commanding officer, she has a reputation to uphold and it’s one that doesn’t include getting involved with her coworkers. Gage Adams is not your typical pretty boy. The team’s co-pilot and former pararescueman has seen battle and lived to lose sleep over it. For four years he has worked alongside Frankie, treating her with respect, viewing her as a sister... Tonight, everything between them will change forever…
I've never read a book about the Coast Guards before, Navy SEAL, yes, Combat, yes, fire fighters, police, yes, yes
But Coast Guards have a GREAT job! I loved this book!
First we start off as Monday Margarita night is in full swing. Once a month, Frankie gets together with the girls - they drink all the tequila in the bar, make a LOT of noise, and share everyone's deepest secrets, and Lots and Lots of sex talk :)
That's where we learn about "the bet" Demon is Frankie's medic in her crew. He has got to be the horniest guy alive! He makes a bet with Frankie that he can get all the unmarried girls in her "sisterhood" group to sleep with him.
That's why at this Margarita night, she learned that she is missing out - Damon made Kristin see "Spots"...
It took years for Frankie to get the respect of her 3 co-workers/ crew. Their number one rule was no getting involved with any of them.. they respected it, and they all became good friends.
Damon is the medic on board, and Quinton was the one to help him lure the victim into the Helicopter. Frankie was the captain and pilot of the crew, with Gage as her co-pilot.
Out on a run, they pick up a couple of people. 2 of them died.
The guys knew how hard it hit Frankie, bringing back memories of her sister's death, so they left her alone. Gage close by in case she wants to talk.
After some time in her room, she needed to get out. She decided to go swimming. She motioned to Gage that she was going out.
About 2 hours later, Gage finished reading his book, he didn't realize that Frankie hadn't come back yet.. he started to panic. Everyone went out on the beach to find her.
WHen they did find her, she was on the edge of hypothermia.
Bringing her back inside, they did everything they could to get her warm. Almost an hour later, she was still shaking and unconscious. That's when Gage started to take off his clothes, and ordered Damon to do so as well. They snuggled up to her inside the sleeping bag,
LOL - Gage to her back, and poor poor poor Damon to her front. Let's just say, even unconscious, Frankie didn't like Damon snuggling up to her :)
The next morning, Gage felt Frankie snuggled down into him.. it was a .. painful night for him being this close to Frankie, and she really wasn't helping things. just as he was about to sneak out, he heard her mumble in her sleep "I want to see spots"
When Frankie woke up, she felt horrible. She knew better then to swim without her watch. When she asked who was in the sleeping bag with her, They all laughed, well, everyone except Damon :)
Work was slow, Damon suggested that they play a game of Naked Truth Poker - The winner asked any question to anyone, and if they didn't answer, they took something off.
ROFLOL - Some of those questions! HA!!
From Gage to Frankie " Have you ever had an Orgasm?"
Frankie kept a blank face, but the rapid pulse at her throat was a dead giveaway to everyone at the table. She reached down and pulled off her other sock.
"Never?" Damon blurted with undignified horror - she shot him a scathing look.
Mortified, but they still played on. A few easy questions to get back into the game, that is, until Gage won
What did you mean when you said you wanted to see spots?"
Everything happened at once, Demon spewed his coffee, the cat took off running, and Quinton grunted with surprise. Frankie lost her composure"
Not even knowing when she had said that, she stammered her way around trying not to answer it, but not having enough clothes on to skip around it.
But luckily for her, Damon was more than Happy to tell them all about his encounter with Kristin...
After that night, Frankie's sex life became Damon's main topic - and Gage was getting furious. No one would show Frankie "spots' except HIM!
This story was WAY cute. I totally loved how Frankie was the Captain of her Unit, in charge of all the guys, but in the bedroom she was able to let Gage take control.
There were some fun perks, crazy rescues and tense happenings all around in this book -
The only thing I didn't like was it eneed at 75% - I would have loved to have read more :)
