As Hot As It Gets by Elle Kennedy

Out Of Uniform #10
Jackson wants a woman to love and a family. All of his friends have found love. He keeps getting fixed up but he hasn't met anyone he wants to date a second time. One morning he sees a woman digging in the yard next door, talking to herself. He goes out and talks to her. Her name is Mia and she's a gardener. He asks her out but she says she is too busy raising her 16 year old brother and the two jobs she works.
Jackson decides to give Seth and Miranda a wedding gift. He got Mia to work her magic in their yard. He sees her there and asks her out again. He convinces her to say yes. They have a great time on their date and he gets her to say yes to another. Soon they are having fun (and sex) together. But Mia does not want a relationship. Will things change?

I loved this book. The sex was very steamy. The relationships were great, especially the ones between the family members.

From the author:
Sea, air, land, the bedroom…this SEAL is always in command.
After watching his teammates settle down one by one, Navy SEAL Jackson Ramsey is ready to say goodbye to the single life. He’s even met a woman who intrigues him, challenges him, and turns him right on—Mia Weldrick, the funny and beautiful gardener he can’t wait to get to know better.

Except Mia isn’t interested in dating him, which means it’s time for Jackson to unleash his Texas charm and do some serious wooing.

With a teenage brother to raise, two jobs, and, frankly, a complete disinterest in sex, Mia has no room in her busy life for a six-foot-five SEAL with a naughty streak a mile wide. But one hot kiss from Jackson has her imagining all the dirty ways she could fit him in.

It isn’t long before their no-string fling transforms into something more. As desire unearths emotions and deeply buried secrets, Mia has to decide whether to give love a chance to grow, or let it slip it away.

Warning: This Southern gentleman is wickedly ungentlemanly in the bedroom. He likes it rough and kinky, and he’s not afraid to make his sexual demands known. Anal, spanking, voyeurism, and other surprises await you in this last and dirtiest Out of Uniform installment.

Excerpt:


She was wearing those cute denim shorts again. That was Jackson’s first observation when he stepped onto the stone patio. The fact that she was oblivious to his presence gave him ample opportunity to admire her petite body, and dang, he totally appreciated the view.

With a pair of earbuds popped in, Mia bobbed her head to the music as she raked the fresh layer of dirt in the empty flowerbeds lining the fence. When Jackson glanced around, he was impressed by how much she’d already accomplished today. The jungle-length grass was freshly mowed, all the monstrous weeds had been pulled out, and the beds around the perimeter were dug out and topped with new soil.

He took a step forward and cleared his throat, but Mia’s back stayed turned. Her arms and shoulders were bare, and her golden-brown tan shimmered in the sunlight. Lord, she was pretty. He couldn’t take his eyes off her.

A few more steps and his scuffed-up combat boots met the grass, but Mia still didn’t turn around.

Sighing, Jackson raised his voice and called out, “Afternoon, sugar.”

The rake clattered out of her hand, a loud shriek escaping her lips as she spun around in surprise. The movement was so quick that her sneaker-clad feet got tangled together, her arms windmilled and she went down like a stone.

Right on her ass.

F***in’ hell.

“Oh my God! You scared the living crap out of me!” she yelled, her green eyes burning with annoyance. “Who sneaks up on people like that? Who?

Despite himself, Jackson laughed, which only made those mesmerizing eyes burn brighter.

Mia yanked out her earbuds and shot to her feet, advancing on him like a predator. “Don’t do stuff like that! What if I had a heart condition? And what if—wait a sec. What are you doing here? Oh man. Did you follow me here?” Her breaths came out in pants. “I’m flabbergasted right now. Jackson, was it? I’m flabbergasted, Jackson.”

Another wave of laughter poured out of him. She looked so confused and upset and he knew he shouldn’t laugh. He really, really shouldn’t be laughing, but his attempt at reconnecting with this woman had failed so miserably it was impossible not to find it hilarious.

“And you’re laughing at me,” Mia said in disbelief. “Wow. Just. Wow.”

“I’m sorry,” he choked out. “I don’t mean to laugh, darlin’. But the look on your face right now…” He smothered another chuckle and tried to compose himself. “Shit. I really am sorry. Why don’t we start over? Afternoon, Mia. It’s good to see you again.”

She gaped at him.

“I’m not following you,” he added. “I’m friends with Seth and Miranda.”

“You’re friends with Seth and Miranda.”

“Yep. I caught a ride with Seth from the base—”

“You caught a ride with Seth from the base.”

“Yeah, we’re both SEALs. Anyway—”

“You’re both SEALs.”

“—he’s drivin’ me home soon, but I wanted to say hi to you before we—”

“You wanted to say hi.”

Jackson stopped. “Are you just gonna keep repeating everything I say?”

“Are you going to prove to me I’m not being stalked right now?” she shot back. “Because I’m not sold on that yet, bud.”
