Chica Bella, By Carly Fall

Landon “Blackhawk” Walker is ready to get out of the Navy SEALs. He has seen and done enough, and can’t wait to get to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico where three tasks await him: get back into civilian mode, take a boat out to the El Arco Rocks, and win back the heart of the woman he lost because of his career.Maya Gonzalez has tired of the heartbreak that comes with Landon’s deployments year after year. When he walks back into her life, she cannot deny her heart, despite her reservations.

As they lose themselves in each other and the beauty of Cabo, their passion is rekindled once again, but Maya knows that one phone call means deployment for Landon, putting an end to their reunion, and possibly their relationship.
This is a short story, but manages in sixty or so pages to pack quite a punch.  It’s a sexy tale, set in an exotic place.  Yesterday, it was 25 degrees Fahrenheit where I live, so give me a story of sun, sand and sex with a muscle bound man and I’m all set!
Landon Walker is a Navy SEAL (YES!) who has had several tours in Afghanistan.  Between deployments, he spent some time in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.  While there, he met a beautiful bartender, Maya, which he connected with, but suddenly got called up to his job, so he leaves without a word.  He thought this would
easier for her, but he has spent the last 9 months thinking of her.  He’s ready to get out of the Navy and has requested retirement, and returns to Mexico to see Maya again.  Can he win her heart?  Will he be granted his  retirement request or will he be re-deployed and have to leave yet again?
I realize that maybe, just maybe, I should try a bit harder in my own relationship.  When my husband wants something, I want him to try and change my mind through mind-blowing sex.  Because that is exactly what Lucas
pretty much does to Maya in this story.  It’s awesome.  It’s not all sex though, Landon as a character goes pretty deep.
The descriptions of his life as a Navy SEAL seemed really realistic to me.  Maya was also really sassy and strong, yet sensitive.  I really liked both the main characters in this story.
At the end of the day, it’s just a really sweet love story about two people who have a real connection, but both have reservations about exploring something because of the unknown.  It’s short, but doesn’t feel too short.  You
get a lot of bang for your buck here, pun intended.
