Never say never…
After loving and losing a soldier once, Isabella Knowles made a vow: No more military men. She’s rebuilt her life and has a classroom full of fifth graders to love, which is more than enough even though her father doesn’t agree. When he sets her up on a blind date, she only goes to humor him -- never dreaming that the man she meets will tempt her to break her one rule.
In theory, Ethan Masters is not opposed to the wife, kids and house with a white picket fence. But he loves his career as a K-9 handler in the air force, and a dream promotion dangles before him like dog tags. While contemplating his future, he accepts a drunken bet for a blind date, never dreaming that the captivating woman fits perfectly into his ideal, all-American dream. Only one problem. She's gun-shy about all things military.
Can Ethan prove to Isabella love is worth the risk?

I really enjoyed reading this book and look forward to the rest of this series. The book held a full range of emotions that kept it interesting. The story moved along at a good pace. The characters and plot felt true to life. It was nice not to have been able to predict the final surprise at the end of the story.
