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.
When I first started reading Only With You I thought this was going to be one of those weird stories where the friends are overly involved in each other’s lives to create unnecessary drama.
I’m glad that I was wrong.
We first meet Hannah and she’s feeling low because not only has her twin sister fallen in love with her very best friend, but she was painfully single after ending an engagement that just wasn’t right. She was swearing off men and working on herself, something every woman of a certain age has done in the aftermath of a big break up. And wouldn’t you know that’s just when she finds the right guy!
Aiden is…a peach. He’s handsome and quiet and kind of brooding but I wouldn’t call him a bad boy. He thinks he’s a bad man but as we learn throughout Only With You that he’s actually the best type of man.
Watching their friendship slowly develop into something more was beautiful and fun and sometimes hilarious because our girl Hannah is a talker with a capital T. It takes some time for them to actually get together and there is plenty of self-created drama to keep them apart but not enough hat it becomes ridiculous and overwrought.
Nicole McLaughlin’s story was fun and engaging and I had a good time reading it from start to finish.
