Emma’s friends have talked her into a program that has civilians emailing soldiers. Her pen pal comes in the form of one commanding officer named Finn. Thinking that they will never actually meet in real life Emma goes along with her friend’s lies on her profile especially since they only mean well. Emma lets the woman she is hiding inside her come out in her emails. She feels safe that the emails are as far as things will go. Emma has resigned herself to being alone but Finn has other ideas. Little does Emma know but Finn plans on meeting his mysterious pen pal in person and when he shows up on her front door the sparks begin.
I adored both Emma and Finn right from the start. Emma is a strong woman who has done so much in her life and can stand on her own. She does everything including loving with her whole heart giving more than one hundred percent. All that she needs is some company, more specifically a man to love her. Finn may just be that man. He is a proud man who fights for the country he loves. He has never been afraid until now, afraid of the feelings that Emma brings out in him. I really enjoyed watching the relationship bloom between the two. The sparks ignite right from their first meeting and grow into full-fledged flames as the book goes on. Each one knows that this is just a temporary fix yet their feelings grow with each passing minute making both of them confused and worried about what will happen when Finn must go back on another mission.
I loved seeing Emma grow and find herself with Finn’s help. He shows her just what a beautiful person she is and helps her explore her sexual needs and wants. Not only is this story a hot read but you get a wonderful romance as well. I loved seeing the emotions that Emma and Finn go through. Especially Finn. He is a big macho man that is brought down by a woman and his love for her.
OPERATION: SPANK ME is a great story that shows us the power of love and just what it can do. Christina James does a nice job of bringing these characters to life and keeping the reader interested all the way until the end of the story.
