Nick UnCaged (Sanctuary #4) by Abbie Zanders
Former SEAL Nick “Cage” Fumanti likes where his life is at. A city boy at heart, he’s made peace with the fresh air, open skies, and satisfaction he gets from helping make Sanctuary a success. The best part is, he’s all but forgotten the shady past that prompted him to join the Navy right out of high school. The only thing missing is someone to share it with, but since he’s much better with tech than he is with women, he doesn’t hold out much hope that’s going to happen.
Online journalist Gabriella De Rossi is tired of being passed over for the juicy assignments. She wants more than the puff pieces and human interest stories being tossed her way. She understands the seedy underworld better than most because she’s actually lived it. Sure, her personal experiences may have developed her empathetic tendencies, but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t have what it takes.
When Bree is sent to Pennsylvania to do a story on a new program to assist returning veterans re-acclimate into civilian society, she’s understandably less than enthusiastic. However, fate might actually be on her side for once. Not only does the former SEAL tasked with showing her around rouse her non-professional interest, but she soon discovers that the sleepy little mountain town of Sumneyville has its share of secrets… and so does her SEAL.
Revealing the truth could be the big break Bree’s been waiting for, but if doing so means losing Nick forever, is it worth it?
