Before his mission began, he went home. 24 hours to say goodbye to his twin sister.
Instead he found her. A girl that was nothing like the one he thought he knew.
They have 24 hours. 24 hours before he deploys on an extremely dangerous mission. 24 hours together in a freak West Texas snowstorm. 24 hours that will have to get them both through the awful next year.
When the resident good-girl decides to take on the visiting bad-boy, 24 hours is all it takes to change their lives forever.
This is the story of the 24 hours that no one knew ever occurred…until now.
The timeline of this novella is set before the When the Mission Ends trilogy occurs, but this book is actually meant to be read between Book #2, Operation: Endeavor, and Book #3, Operation: Endurance.
Release date: February 2013
We’ve met Julie and watched her suffer in book #2. She’s been constantly present in this family, because she’s Cassie best friend, but this novella is actually set before the events of book #1 and no one is aware they had a weekend together.
Chris is a total nice and this showed a more carefree side of him, that we just couldn’t see lately because of his trauma and recovery. I liked him and how good he treated Julie.
The sex was extra special because Julie was a little scarred from her past experiences and this time she just wanted to like it for a bit and Chris was super sweet and attentive with her. He even calls her Butterfly. Cute!!
