This is my opinion on the books I read. Remember, don't take it personally and don't get all shitty with me over it. I don't bash the author personally unless the author has bashed the shit out of me and yes one has. So I will bash Madeline Sheehan forever. Otherwise if a book sucks it doesn't mean the person sucks, I've had books I loved and hated by the same author before, it happens. Not everything will please everyone. This is only my opinon and how these particular books made me feel.
My account was removed from GR so at the moment I'm severely lacking in reviews and books but rest assured for the 2013 year I've read over 300 books.
5 Awesome Navy SEAL Stars
ARC Provided by NetGalley
It took me a while to read this book because life kept getting in the way. It's like the world didn't want me to read this awesome book. I loved this book from start to finish. There were times I was ready to strangle Captain Morgan. Ha, drinking joke. She was a pain in the ass stubborn butthole at times but she was a strong woman and was a completely amazing character. I want more characters like this in the books I read. I love it!
Yes Jake was the absolute hotness wrapped in sex, topped with a dollop of super human warrior. Uh yeah, he was alpha male awesome. Ladies, put a belt on your panties to hold them up. Well, if that's your intention anyways, otherwise, freeball it all you want. (Yeah, what's the womanly version of freeball? I don't know either, freeovaries? I'm not typing the other one I thought of.)
Yes, the book cover whore in me, completely fell for the cover. It does help give a fantasmagoric visual of the hotness that is Jake Ramsey. It in no way matters. I've learned with other books with amazing covers but super stupid story lines that were pulled out of a donkey's ass. This book was well researched and amazingly written. The author somehow created this super realistic storyline of the drama that goes on in a persons mind when they're being shot at and the feelings they endure and the hardships of going out into the life of a Navy SEAL sniper.
Jake and Morgan had been off again, on again lovers for 10 years when this story begins. It begins with Jake and Morgan running into each other at the Pentagon to go to a secret meeting for a black op mission. They both end up going into the same office and waiting to discuss their new missions. They each meet with a separate General and find out that they'll be working together on a mission that Morgan desperately wanted to be a part of. Jake's name was chosen at random by the computer because of his experience and abilities. They can't turn the job dow or it'd mean a discharge from the military for both of them so they must go through with it and soon they head out Afghanistan.
Jake and Morgan never really knew anything about each other's pasts and both just always ended up having sex when they came together. Jake doesn't know that he has a daughter with Morgan who's now 2 years old. Morgan had a miscarriage with her first child that belonged to Jake and didn't want anything to do with him but some years later, she ended up sleeping with him again. They've always loved each other, it was just never the right time for either of them. They both had gotten married and lost their spouses but neither knew about the other's marriage. Morgan didn't know Jake had a child also from a previous marriage.
They start to come together on this mission in Afghanistan and somehow survive an attack that they never should have come out of alive and soon their relationship takes a major turn. They both realize they wanted to be with each other after Morgan gets seriously injured. She's ready to tell him about his daughter but he's soon sent away on another mission because his injuries healed up pretty fast. He's gone for a month on another dangerous mission.
This story did end up with a HEA. I'm still a sucker for those. I love how they came together and got their shit straight. We all know 2 people who should be together but avoid it for whatever reasons and it frustrates the hell out of you because they're perfect for each other. Yeah, that's Jake and Morgan. You want to lock them in a room until everything is straight with them and they figure it out. I swear they're both clueless. Jake is the perfect romantic, in his words and in his opening his heart to Morgan and his daughter. He will make you swoon if you like a man who's tough but sensitive and honest and loving and yes, caring.
Ok I'm going to go swoon some more over here. Go read this book. Enjoy!
