"Always For You: Jack" (Alexis Morgan) ★★★★


Praised by Susan Mallery as a bestselling author whose “heartfelt, touching stories never disappoint,” Alexis Morgan introduces Sergeant Joe's Boys: three brothers living up to a legacy of courageous military service—and pursuing the women who have captured their hearts.

No one understands family loyalty like Jack McShane. He'd do anything to honor his foster father's last wishes, even if it means putting his own plans on hold to manage Joe's construction business. An ex–Special Forces operative, Jack thrives on the thrill of globe-hopping rescues. But now he's needed closer to home. His foster mother has her hands full with a troubled teen, and when Jack meets the hired tutor, he discovers a woman who stirs his protective instincts—and his deepest desires.

Caitlyn Curtis knows that good looks can hide a hot temper. After an abusive marriage crushed her dreams of a happy ending, she swore off men—until one intoxicating dance in Jack's strong arms breaks down every emotional barrier. Tough but tender, he leaves Caitlyn yearning for more of his gentle seduction. Despite the violence he's seen, Jack is a good man. And even though passion can be dangerous, the promise of Jack's kiss tempts her to believe that love is a risk worth taking


"Always for You: Jack" by Alexis Morgan is a feel good story that envelops love, family and trust.  Jack is trying to do the right thing after the passing of his dad but his plan is to go back to his life once things are settled.  Well, life has a funny way of throwing a wrench in the best of plans.  Along comes Ricky, a homeless teen living on the streets. He's tough and has attitude but Jack recognizes himself in the boy so he tries his darndest to help him.  That's the type of guy Jack is - willing to help out, caring and loving.  He knows family is number one and I loved that about him.  Along comes Caitlyn, Ricky's tutor.  Well, sparks fly between these two!  Caitlyn has some issues coming from a bad marriage, but I really liked her.  She has worked hard to gain control of her life and be independent yet not lose her caring heart.  Ms. Morgan has successfully written a tale that is heartwarming and has touches of heartache too.  I enjoyed this story and look forward to more in this series down the road.  (received copy for honest review)
