𝘿𝙖𝙣𝙞 𝙒𝙝𝙞𝙩𝙩𝙖𝙠𝙚𝙧 has turned in her Washington D.C. insider badge, leaving behind the backstabbing ways and seedy politicians. When a friendly favor ends with the one man she can’t have making her body sing in ways she hates to adore, D.C. isn’t the only thing she needs to escape.
Navy SEAL, 𝙉𝙖𝙨𝙝 𝙒𝙚𝙡𝙡𝙨𝙡𝙚𝙮, is all about honoring a promise to his dead brother, so accepting a dare from the long-legged force of nature tempting him isn’t in the cards. Not if he wants to keep his only remaining friend and stick to the code he grew up on.
But retreat is impossible after Dani’s new job puts her in the headlights of a fanatic, and Nash is called upon to protect her.
When the chase ends, will they be left shattered or will they emerge from the ashes together?

Dani has decided to put the job in politics behind her and start a new job (whatever that may be) after finally deciding she has had enough of the lifestyle.
Nash is trying to find himself after a mission went wrong that meant he lost his team and his temper has put him under review.
Right from the very beginning I was hooked by this book, the story was written well so the reader was not left hanging around with little action. I loved Nash and Dani’s characters, neither are shrinking violets and have strong personalities.
The idea of including a Spotify playlist to read with the chapters in the book is brilliant and I cannot stop listening to the songs and be transported back to certain areas of the story.
Whilst I have never read any of L J Evan’s books previously I will now be reading her other books so I can fall in to the wonderful world she creates again and again. I cannot wait for the next in this series to be released so I can see what happens next!
Title: Damaged Desires Author: LJ Evans Publisher: Self-published Publication Date: October 26, 2020 Genre: Contemporary romance, military romance, Tropes: brother’s best friend, friends-to-enemies-to-lovers (frenemy) ASIN: B085FPY52K ISBN: 979-8683456992 Format: Print and digital Tag Line: “From the ashes, there’s life.”
Award winning author, LJ Evans, lives in the California Central Valley with her husband, daughter, and the terrors called cats. She’s been writing, almost as a compulsion, since she was a little girl and will often pull the car over to write when a song lyric strikes her. A former first grade teacher, she now spends her days reading and writing, as well as binge-watching original shows like The Crown, The Great, Veronica Mars, and Stranger Things.
If you ask her the one thing she won’t do, it’s pretty much anything that involves dirt—sports, gardening, or otherwise. But she loves to write about all of those things, and her first published heroine was pretty much involved with dirt on a daily basis, which is exactly why LJ loves fiction novels—the characters can be everything you’re not and still make their way into your heart.
Her debut novel, MY LIFE AS A COUNTRY ALBUM, was the Independent Author Network’s 2017 YA Book of the Year, and the debut series has won multiple awards including Romance Audiobook of the Year in the Indie Audiobook Awards.
