This was a quick read, with a lot of action and romance that kept me wanting to read more and more. It picks up where the previous book left off, and I liked how you didn't really need to read the first book to understand what's going on (although it helps).
Dr. Callie O'Connor is a psychologist on the local military base in Crystal City, California. She's been on a no-dating streak for a while, along with her "sisters", the Muses. Each have within them a Muse from Greek mythology. Callie's is the Muse of Epic Poetry. A group of men are out to get her and her sisters, and they each must connect with their Guardian in order to survive. Hunter Armstrong, a Navy SEAL home after a mission overseas, is that Guardian for her. Soon Callie's no-dating rule is gone, and she and Hunter must work together to keep her alive.
While I liked both characters individually, I did have some trouble becoming truly invested in their relationship. I like Hunter a lot, even with his insecurities, and he truly cared about other people. Callie was very relatable as well, but I was aggravated in the beginning with her martyr-ish attitude. It became a bit much, and I was glad when she finally came out with the truth of her past. The story felt a bit stunted until that point.
I enjoy these books so far, and I look forward to reading more in the series! I think I can already tell where the next one is headed, and I'm very excited.
