Review: Stirring Attraction (Second Shot #2) by Sara Jane Stone

The second, sizzling book in Sara Jane Stone's Second Shots series...

When Dominic Fairmore left Oregon to be all he could be as an Army Ranger, he always knew he’d come back to claim Lily Greene. But after six years away and three career-ending bullets, Dominic is battered, broken, and nobody's hero—so he stays away. Until he learns Lily has been the victim of a seemingly random attack. He’ll do anything to keep her safe . . . even go home.

Lily is starting to find a life without Dominic when suddenly her wounded warrior is home and playing bodyguard—though all she really wants is for him to take her. But she refuses to play the part of a damsel in distress, no matter how much she misses his tempting touch. He’ll leave as soon as she’s safe and Lily knows her heart will never heal.

But as attraction stirs to so much more, danger closes in. With more than Lily’s heart at stake, Dominic can no longer draw a line between protecting Lily and loving her . . .

Stirring Attraction, the second installment in Sara Jane Stone's Second Shot series, left me with some mixed feelings. While I was reading the book, I felt something different than when I finished. Hopefully I'm not coming into a reading slump, but if I am, that would actually explain a lot. To be honest, I had to push myself to continue reading. Stirring Attraction is a very somber romance between two incredibly wounded characters and I think that was something I wasn't in the mood for. However, once I finished and looked back at the story as a whole, I actually really enjoyed it. I loved the complexity of the characters. I loved how much the characters grew, not just Lily and Dominic. We also get to watch Caroline and Josh continue to grow closer. I loved the hint of suspense from Lily's attact. It was just enough to keep me intrigued and didn't take over the romance. It all came together perfectly and once I finished Stirring Attraction, I was able to reflect on the book and appreciate it more. I'm really looking forward to Josh and Caroline's book, which is coming up next.
