Review: LET ME IN by Callie Croix

About the book:

On leave for Thanksgiving, the last thing marine lieutenant Talia Barnett expects to find is Liam Brodie waiting for her at the airport. He’s had a starring role in her fantasies for the past two years, and although she’d love to make them a reality, she has a dark secret that prevents her from taking things further.

A former marine, Liam’s specialty is planning tactical operations, and that’s just what he plans to do to win Talia. The woman has kept him at arm’s length for too long, and this time he’s finally going to claim her-body and heart.

What begins as comfort quickly turns hot. When Liam shows Talia a hint of the dominant nature inside him, the submissive part of her flares to life. Though she desires him, she’s going back on deployment and doesn’t want to dump all her drama on him. Will he find a way to break through the protective walls around her heart and convince her they have a future that goes far beyond the bedroom?

LET ME IN is a very emotional novella. A lot happens to Talia in a very short time, but instead of feeling like we only get the surface there is depth to the character. There isn’t as much to Liam, but he felt like more of a supporting character to me. Talia is the focus of the story and the romance helps her overcome and deal with the things happening around her. The story is short, but didn’t feel rushed. The sex scenes are hot and I fully believed in the happily ever after.
