My name is Brecklyn Brannon, and I’m not who I claim to be.

A year ago, I packed up my promising life in the city for a man I saw only once.

Accepting a temporary job with Cade and four blazing hot veterans should have been my way in.

Except, Cade acts like he would rather be tortured than speak to me.

He can resist all he wants, but I made a promise that I intend to keep.

Even if it costs me everything.

CadeI’ve watched her for over a year.

There’s something about her that seems familiar… but now that she’s living here for two weeks, I could care less what it is.

I just want her gone.

Breck is temptation personified, and some lines can’t be crossed.

I’m Major Cade Jameson, and I made a promise, too.

One that I can’t break.

No matter how hard it gets.

Before I proceed with my review, I’d like a tissue paper please… *sniff, sniff*


Okay.. I’m okay now.. Time for me to tell you about this young girl who had been bewitched by a man she only saw via a video call to her brother. And this man in that particular video whose life had changed tragically and tremendously when he lost his comrades. This is the story about Brecklyn Brennan and Major Cade Jameson.

Both have suffered emotionally after the death of someone close to them, someone they had in common, but only Breck knew about it. Cade was broken after the ordeal he’d been through in the war. As a veteran, surely he had a lot of battle scars and emotional ones that kept haunting him. Enough to make him lose his mind, free will and keen sense in his surroundings. That’s why Breck’s presence made it all the more difficult for hi to cope and deal with his present situation. And Breck was the sweetest, biggest distraction he couldn’t afford to ignore.. or lose.

Breck’s decision to leave her job after her brother’s death in order to pursue that one man that meant a lot to him was quite a gamble and looked like a big mistake. But seeing Major Jameson again after everything she’d seen and been through was all she needed to get that closure and understanding about her brother’s early demise. Falling in love with Cade was initially a part of her plan, but when she witnessed firsthand Cade’s post traumatic episodes, Breck wasn’t so sure anymore.

Just so you know, my eyes are already red and glossy and my nose is like that of Rudolph’s because I’ve been crying all night long reading this book. Because just like the title implies, this story is Gorgeous… as in devastatingly beautiful and painfully heart-warming.. I don’t know how I was able to get through the pages. All I know is Major Cade Jameson stole my breath away and Brecklyn Brannon stole my heart.

And major props to author Kristy Marie for a wonderfully written story about finding love in the most unexpected and unconventional way. You, my dear, are Gorgeous!


About the Author:

A self-proclaimed reader enthusiast, Kristy started her writing journey back in 2009, reading and writing when her daughter was napping. Establishing her place in Corporate America (because something had to pay the bills), writing became her dirty, late-night secret.

After eight long years, she released her debut novel, Commander in Briefs. It was a long road, but she can honestly say, the road less traveled had the most beautiful sights.

The only thing Kristy Marie loves as much as reading and writing is sports! Especially those that require muscles and a nice ass. Her favorite is, and always will be, baseball. She’s such a fan, that she even married her small town’s high school’s centerfielder where they still live with their three badass kids.

Commander in Briefs is her first series but definitely not her last.
