The Army Ranger's Surprise by Donna Micheals
Series: The Men of At-Ease Ranch #5
Genres: Contemporary Romance, Military Romance

Army brat Kaydee Wagner gets twitchy if she stays in one place for too long. But when her grandfather needs someone to stay with him for a bit and his home needs a lot of repairs, she steps up to the plate.

Lucky for her, help arrives from their neighbor’s gorgeous grandson, former Army Ranger Leo Reed.

Leo’s desperate to rise above his dark past and enjoy life again. He’s already made a lot of progress, so when the woman he can’t stop thinking about needs a handyman, he volunteers. But after a very...wet incident involving deadly dance moves and a wayward sink hose, their clothes hit the floor faster than a stack of tile.

He doesn’t want forever—that would mean revealing his past, which he’s not ready to do. She only wants right now, because any other option would require sticking around.

And then Kaydee discovers she’s pregnant.

This was my first book in the series. Although this is part of a series I had no problem reading this one without being lost. I really loved the idea of a ranch for returning vets who are damaged whether physically or some emotionally. There is more than enough backstory told for you to how  the vets are having to deal with issues beyond their control.

Leo is one of those vets having been an Army Ranger who is keeping an eye on his grandmother while his mother is out of town. Kaydee is Leo’s grandmother’s neighbor who helps out when she can. Of course it helps that her grandfather like Leo’s grandmother as well. While both Kaydee and Leo like each other they keep their distance until they don’t.  The whole story was well written and sweet. Leo and Kaydee couldn’t have been more perfect for one another and their grandparents who simply awesome!
