It was the night before Christmas, and all through the house, not a creature was stirring…nope. No. Nuh-uh. That’s a lie.
The moment that Caro wakes up, she knows that she’s not alone.
One thump-thump from the living room and she quickly moves into action.
One 9-1-1 call later, and she’s ready to defend herself.
Only, she gets more than she bargains for when she steps out into her living room and comes face to face with a living, breathing nightmare.
And isn’t it just fitting that the man that saves her by coming down the chimney with a large black gun in his hand is named Saint Nicholas?
It seemed like the start of a bad joke.
Saint Nicholas comes down the chimney on Christmas Eve night, but he isn’t there to bear gifts. He’s there to take out the trash.
When he lands on his silent feet, he has no other choice but to put himself in harm’s way.
One look at Caro’s terrified face, and he can’t stop himself.
He steps in just as the bullets start flying, saving the damsel in distress and taking a bullet to the shoulder for his trouble.
But one thing he can say is, heroes always win the girl.
And Caro is the best Christmas miracle of all.
Depends on Who’s Asking is the final book in the SWAT generation 2.0 series and I am sad to see it end; however, this book is a fantastic swan song!
Saint Nicholson has a secret he has kept from everyone: he is the son of a former US President. He dislikes his family and the life he led. He kept everyone in the dark about his past for that reason. I loved that he has sort of a nerdy side. It is impossible not to love Saint. He is caring, compassionate, and has adopted a litter of cats that are HUGE (seriously, 30 lb Maine Coons). He is quiet and contemplative-and it is super hot!
Carolina is outspoken and opinionated. I appreciated that she really took care to understand Saint and not just react. These two have the type of trust that is enviable! She had a very different upbringing-a loud and loving family with 2 knuckleheaded brothers. She and Saint are ying and yang in almost every way.
The plot of Depends on Who’s Asking is varied and feels more like the normal life of a couple-there isn’t just one event in the story, there are many! Now, saying it feels more like a normal life doesn’t mean I think that its normal to be quarantined for Ebola or have a secret service agent assigned to you. But, the fact that the story has multiple important events mixed with multiple mundane events feels familiar. This book is probably my favorite of the series!
