“Worn me down like a road. I did everything you told. Worn me down to my knees.
I did everything to please.”

Austin Conrad has never taken his personal life seriously. As a Navy SEAL, he spends all of his time in dangerous, life-threatening situations. The only way to leave behind the horrors he’s seen throughout his career, is to turn it all off when he gets home. He’s too much of a playboy to settle down; even if he did find a woman he could stand to be around for more than one night, he would never taint her life with the demons of his past.

When his best friend and SEAL team member, Brady Marshall asks him to keep an eye on his baby sister, Gwen, Austin figures it will be a walk in the park. The only thing Austin likes more than flirting his way under a beautiful woman’s skin, is walking away with a smile on his face. Austin never expects that the single mom and her little girl will be the ones getting under his skin.
Gwen Stratford knows all too well about living in a nightmare. After taking her daughter and fleeing from her abusive husband in the middle of the night several months ago, she’s worked hard to get her life back on track and forget about the man who tried to break her. Growing up under the iron thumb of her parents and then moving right on with a man who ruled their marriage with his fists, Gwen is finally able to breathe and live her life the way she wants.

When scary, mysterious things begin to happen to Gwen and her daughter, she realizes you can never outrun your past; it always has a way of catching up with you. As she struggles with the desire to keep her newfound independence, she knows she won’t be able to protect herself and her child alone. She’ll need to lean on the one man who drives her crazy.

Can Gwen really put her trust in a man who thinks life is one big joke, or will he be just another man in her life who tries to wear her down?

Worn Me Down Playlist


Honestly, going into this series I wasn't sure what to expect....we know Tara Sivec can write funny and heart-warming, what I wasn't expecting was Tara to suck me in to this series writing as T.E. Sivec. Tara proves she can write it all, whether it be laugh-out-loud hilarious or suspenseful and sexy! I ended up really loving this gotta love smoking hot, military alpha males and take no-nonsense sassy women who knock them off their feet!

Austin is a Navy Seal for life. It is the only thing he knows, the only family he knows. He had a horrible childhood, and found himself in the military and it become his family. When one of his fellow Seals calls on him for help, it is without a doubt that he is there, after all they are his brothers. When he goes to help watch over his friend Brady's sister Gwen, Austin soon finds his presence is not wanted, but he can't help but want something with the woman who gives him an attitude even though he never had an desire for a family before Gwen.

Gwen is hiding. Hiding from a past that has left her broken. She may look tough and be sassy on the outside, but she has suffered from years of abuse from her ex and she will do anything to make sure that her and her daughter are safe and never have to experience that life again. At first she butts heads with Austin but as strange things start to happen, Austin's presence is making Gwen feel safe and making her want things she hasn't wanted in years. What happens when these two give in to their feelings...can they keep it strictly physical without falling? And what happens when the Navy Seals come calling for Austin....can and will he leave "his girls"?

I loved this story! My only complaint is that I wish we would have gotten more of Gwen and Austin in the future. Worn Me Down had it all....suspense, romance, plenty of sexy time, and even made me laugh at points! I'm excited for the next book in this series.
