Review: Sand and Sin by Dani Jace

Wounded in more ways than one, Navy SEAL Jax Taylor only understands short-term commitments. And when he walks into the Trident Bar in Virginia Beach, beautiful bartender Peri Halstead sizes him up right away. But that doesn’t stop her from teasing him with her sultry sarcasm, or taking him home—after she finds him passed out cold in the parking lot…

Soon enough, Jax is recovering at Peri’s in return for doing some handyman work, and the sexy sparks are flying—in almost every room in the house. Peri tells herself she deserves some fun, especially now that she’s a single mom wi

th a cheating ex to deal with. But when it’s time for her and Jax to go their separate ways, the miles between them—and the danger that’s about to touch both their lives—has them wondering if Jax can learn to love more than the mission…

Terri's Thoughts

**I received an advanced copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.  The expected publication date is December 22nd**

This is the second story I have read by Jace after reading Hot as Blazes earlier this year.  Based on her previous work and the description of this story I thought that this would be exactly what I needed for a quick read that was not going to take up to much of a time commitment.  This story delivered.

It is tough to give your thoughts on a story this length without divulging too much information.  It essentially delivers exactly what you expect when you pick up a book with a shirtless man.  Ask my sister what my thoughts are on shirtless men on the covers of books and she will laugh.  I usually avoid for no reason that I can really explain.  That being said, you pretty much know you are going to get a romance where there are a multitude of scenes that are steamier than the sauna room at your local gym.  While this theory hasn't been widely tested I am sure I am mostly accurate.

You also know that the main characters are going to be likeable, physically attractive and have some type of conflict that prevents them from making a long term commitment to each other.  This book had all of them.

While yes this story sticks to the predictable formula one expects, it is all in how much fun you have on the journey.  In this case I was highly entertained and got exactly what I wanted.
