A Santini Takes the Fall (The Santinis #9) by Melissa Schroeder

A man avoiding his destiny. 

Anthony Santini is happy with life. The former Marine is now working a dream job for NCIS in a dream location: Hawaii. He's watched his cousins and now his siblings fall into the Santini Curse and that is not for him. Not yet. He's happy to play the field and enjoy life. It still doesn't stop his cousin's wife from trying to fix him up. 

A woman avoiding love. 

Lalani Hawkins has had enough heartache to last a lifetime. The professional dancer isn't looking for love and she definitely doesn't need a man like Santini in her life. After the worst blind date in history, she thinks she'll never see him again. 

For two people who want to avoid each other, Lalani and Anthony can't seem to achieve that. Each time they meet, Lalani falls a little more under the Santini spell, and for Anthony, he is drawn to the vivacious dancer. But when Anthony senses her hesitation to commit, he starts to formulate a plan. Because when a Santini man decides he's found his mate, there is no stopping him. 

My review:
Oh what fun it is to watch him fall.  Anthony is not ready despite his younger siblings and cousins finding love and marriage. He is in the middle of a life change leaving the Marines and starting a new job with NCIS in Hawaii but fate is a fickle bitch and he is about to find that out. Lalani left the hustle and bustle of NYC for starting her own dance studio in Hawaii. She too is in the middle of a life change. She doesn’t date military men and Anthony qualifies as that but fate has plans for her too in this fun, sweet and sexy read.   You just have to love Melissa Schroeder’s military men and women written with the insight of a military brat and wife she makes you feel the very real pride and frustrations these folks have.
