Synopsis: When Clint “Grim” Walker, started Operation: Save Haven Davenport, the beaten, bruised girl who fell into his life, he had no idea it would turn him into an unbalanced, enraged, insecure idiot.
The mission objectives seemed simple:
Make her feel safe in his home. Fail.
Protect her from the neighborhood playboy. Fail.
Shelter her from the ex girlfriend. Fail.
Not fall in love with her. Epic fail.
And while Clint could learn to live with those failures, there’s one he can’t. And that’s the objective that matters most. More than his side duties of making amends with his father, more than accepting motherly love from his meddling neighbor, and more than attempting to relate to his brother’s in arms off the field.
That objective is life or death.
Clint “Grim” Walker is in the Marines and is currently at home on leave. He doesn’t have the best of relationships with his father and is just looking forward to when he can leave and be on his next assignment. While on leave, he finds Haven unconscious in the yard. He immediately feels protective over her and vows to keep her safe. He doesn’t expect all the feelings he has towards Haven. She completely turns him upside down. He’s never felt for another girl what he feels for Haven.
Xavier takes us on a journey following Grim and Haven as they learn to heal each other. We feel the character’s emotions and passions with each day they grow together. I can’t wait to read more about Haven and Grim in book two.
