Subject: Navy SEAL Petty Officer Aiden Masters Current Status: On leave Obstacle: Deploy "Mission: (Fake) Engagement"…without actually falling for his fiancée! The goal of Mission: Engagement is simple—a fake engagement concocted to bring happiness to Sage Taylor's ailing father. The Rules: 1) Treat it like a military mission 2) Keep the truth undercover 3) The "engagement" lasts as long as the professor's health depends on it; and 4) No sex…especially with each other! But the incredibly spirited (and a touch quirky) Sage has never been one for rules. Especially when they involve Aiden's rock-hard navy bod and a ton of smokin'-hot sexual attraction. Which means in order to seduce this sexy SEAL, she'll have to completely outmaneuver him….

I loved reading my second Tawny Weber book. It's, of course, another one about the SEALs and it followed up from Brody ( A SEALs Salvation), who does make a brief appearance in the book which was awesome.

So let's go back a little, we meet our two characters Aiden & Sage,  who happen to be lifelong friends, Aiden who is a genius & Sage who is a bit of a free spirit.  They rarely see each other and have mostly stayed in contact via Sage's blog and her father, Aiden's mentor.  When Sage comes home for another wedding and learns that her friends are gearing up to set her up she comes up with what should be a little white lie but quickly blooms into a big one.  Which is made even more complicated when Sage gets some seriously devastating news. Now it's up to the duo to maintain the mission for as long as possible, and most of all don't forget the rules.

I loved reading this story., (Don't I always say that?? Naw not really). He was definitely in love with Sage for longer than he was willing to admit.  I loved that even though she was considered the flake she was actually well put together.  I likened her to Dharma from the awesome show Dharma & Greg, she was just as fun & new agey.  She was seen as just flitting about when she's actually doing a great job making a difference in the world. She has had some misadventures along the way but then again we all do.

I like that she has an alternative life to the 'boring' ones that some of us are sometimes forced to choose (because bills don't pay themselves). In her life she has managed to see a lot, make a bit of a difference and do what many wish they could.  It may earn very little money, but it does something even better which is feed her soul. She didn't even have to have the midlife crisis to decide that's where she really wants to go.  I loved that they were totally into helping each other even if they refused to see why.

In this instance Sage was the best character because it's her change and transformation we saw more than Aiden's.  He was already stable in his career and in most of his life, but Sage needed to find a place to settle, a career she wanted and when she realized she already had all the things she just needed to aim better it was awesome to read.

This was once again a book that was relationship focused and it dealt more with their need to find themselves and each other instead of some big outside influences, even though there were a few, we really focused on the characters and what they needed.  I personally loved the choices they were faced with, and how they had to decide what was best for them, even if everyone else didn't agree.  It was very quick read and funny in moments, serious when it needed to be, & really smoking hot when the couple finally got there. All in all it's a good read!!
