~Review: Wounded Courage (Lucky Thirteen #2) by S.M. Butler~

He chose a military career...
Navy SEAL Eamon Murphy regrets never kissing his best friend's sister at graduation. Addison kept him twisted in knots growing up, with her vivacious smile and her gorgeous curves. He thought he was over her. But finding her at the wrong end of his gun three years later is only the beginning, and Murphy just might have to break all his rules to keep her safe.

She chose adventure...
Addison Hardy enrolled in her university's exchange program to prove she wasn't just the family black sheep. How was she to know her exotic French boyfriend would be the son of an international arms dealer? Or that his murder would land her in the custody of one brooding SEAL with a chip on his shoulder?

Now it might be too late for them to choose love.
Their chemistry is flammable--and potentially explosive--but there are complications, silly little things like Addison being arrested, Murphy's unwavering devotion to duty, and all her dead boyfriend's enemies out to kill her. But the final conflagration might not be at all what they're expecting.

Overall Rating:  4 Rockin’ ★★★★

Addison Hardy had always felt like the black sheep of the family so for the last three years she had kept herself separated from her family.  While at school in Paris she had meet and fell for Alex and did not know that he was a member of one of the most deadly mob families in the world.  For the last year she had been helping Alex find a way to leave his family behind and live a life free from crime. Their plan was almost complete when his brother discovers what they are planning and murders Alex then tries to kill Addison. Addison is saved by Seal Team Thirteen and taken into their custody.
Murphy and Chris are members of the seal team that rescues Addison the only problem is that Chris is her twin and Murphy is the man that she has loved all her life.  She had cut herself off from her past because she knew that Murphy would never see her as a woman he could love.  Finding herself in the middle of an on- going investigation into the crime family that she was now a part of put not only herself in danger but also the family that she was trying to protect.  With her brother and Murphy trying to keep her safe and out of prison for treason, Addison must find a way to make things right.
Everything that Murphy has tried not to feel for Addison surfaces as they work together and try to stay alive while they find a way to bring down the Giroux Mob Family.  This family has worldwide power and contacts that will be hunting Addison.  Will Murphy be able to keep Addison safe?  Or will the military imprison her for her involvement with the Giroux Family? Can they find the love that was meant to be?
