The Royal Marine (2017) Dahlia Donovan (The Sin Bin)

The Royal MarineAkash Robinson moved to Cardiff to open his own bakery after working at his parents for years. Unfortunately, running his own bakery means he has no time for the social life he had hoped to develop with the move.

(H)e’d never brought a date home once. They knew he’d dated. He assumed they thought his “boyfriends” were girlfriends.

Hamish Ross and Wyatt Hardy run a military consulting company, and although Wyatt has settled down, Hamish hadn’t met the right person–until he is set up with Aled.

Unfortunately, Scottie (teammate of Caddock, BC, and Tens of the previous stories) also wanted to ask Aled out, and this goes rather badly.

Over the years, Akash’s sisters had often complained about men refusing to gracefully accept rejection. He’d always wondered if they exaggerated. Scottie clearly proved their point.

This story is mostly filler–a HEA for characters from earlier stories but mainly a vehicle to watch Scottie spiral further out of control.

The persistence concerned him; he had no interest in having his life turned upside down by a stalker.

Making a mental note to apologise to his sisters for not taking their complaints about similar behaviour from other men more seriously.

I mean, I like Akash and his sister and family. I like Hamish. I like the twins that work for Akash. But neither Akash or Hamish is as interesting as the characters in the previous books.
