Being Prince Charming (1Night Stand Series) by D.L. Jackson

“You’re no Prince Charming.”

Words screamed in anger, an empty nest, and an emptier life are just some of the reasons people divorce. For Gunny, a diehard Marine who refuses to give up the Corps, and Lissa his wife of over twenty years, the reason isn’t a good one. After a heated argument morphs out of control, Lissa walks away and in his pride, August refuses to go after her.

It took two years, but Lissa is finally ready to move on with her life and marry another man. Only one problem, her heart still belongs to the Marine she left behind.

August is back, looking for a second chance, and this time he isn’t letting Lissa walk away without a fight. Gunny has given up everything, including the Marine Corps, for a second chance with the woman he loves. Madame Eve has given him one night to prove to Lissa he’s all she ever wanted—that he can still be her Prince Charming. Fail, and she’ll marry another man in the morning.

For this Marine—failure is not an option.

My review:

I love a second chance story.  After the kids are grown and off to college Lissa wants Gunny to retire from the Marines and be a full time at home husband.  He isn’t ready to let go just yet so she leaves.  2 years later the guy she is dating asks her to marry him.  She isn’t in love with him but knows she needs to move on.  What will Gunny do to get back the only woman he has ever loved?  This story has some incredible sweet moments and a few ice melting sexy ones as well.
