Interesting Job Helping A helping a she believes get elected governor she oves her house and doesn t want to move to a navy base where she knows no one and she knows Jones isn t happy about the idea of marrying her either These are objective problems not misunderstandings Of course in the end she The Bookshop on the Shore loves him so she does marry him uit her job and move to be near him but to me that s not a convincingly happy ending Given the things that Melody says she wants and cares about what are the chances she s going to be happyiving in crappy military housing waiting around for a guy who will be around maybe 30 days a year And why is it always the woman who sacrifices everything to be with the man I m pretty tired of that message I almost put this book down half read because I disliked Melody so much She was fine in the beginning but her deciding she knew about Harlan s feelings than Harlan got to be really really annoying and repetitive The only reason I kept going was because because it s part of a series The beginning and the ending are 5 star The middle Dance Real Slow lacked aot for me Overall it was a good book not as good as the previous books but still a good book I especially The Art of Memoir liked that in this book SB wrote about the actual SEAL missionMelody is an Administrative Assistant for an Ambassador in some armpit middle eastern country whose government has been overthrown She and two others are being held hostage and SEAL Team 10 Alpha Suad is sent to the rescue Cowboy Harlen Jones is tasked with the convincing the hostages to go Melody instantly trusts Jones the other two have their doubts Melody and Jones really really hit it off and end up spending the next 6 days in bed After that Melody says had a great time soong to Jones Fast forward 7 months and Jones decides that he still has a thing for Melody contacts her she rebuffs him he shows up in her hometown and she isvery pregnant Jones does the math and decides it is his baby The rest of the book Jones is trying to get Melody to marry him. G belly That did it he had to convince her that they were meant to be together That he could be as ordinary as the next guy And he'd do it too even if it meant twenty four hour a day hands on conta. Started off great I really Loved Harlan Cowboy Jones I thought he was a fantastic Hero However I really hate the secret baby plot device and after the initial rescue at the Embassy the story just up and died I really disliked the heroine immensely I thought she was just stupid I can t think of another word besides stupid The way she treats Cowboy Geez She made him jump through so many hoops and he just patiently waited her out Sleeping in a tent in Her Backyard For WEEKS backyard for WEEKS I agree with her sister Brittany I l take him I did ike the storyline involoving twelve year old Andy This was really good but Melody the ead female was kinda getting on my nerves Harlan Cowboy Jones was wonderfulI did however really enjoy reading the Hh s journey of getting to know one another outside of a hostile situation and earning about themselvesNow onto book 5 It started well with a first chapter or prologue action packed and showing ots of potential for great interactions between Melody and Harlan However it all went to the drain from the second chapter onwardsThis second chapter started 7 months ater when he tried to get in touch with her got rebuffed went there to see her and realize she s pregnantOf course what did he do He immediately offered to do his duty that was getting married so that the baby He immediately offered to do his duty that was getting married so that the baby not be illegitimate that particular trope in contemporary romance irritates me to no end and from an author whom I know to be modern and open minded as Suzanne Brockmann this was even disappointing On the other hand Melody sorry I can t call her the heroine as I ended up blowing puffing and getting angry every time she appeared on a page decided that she wanted only an everyday guy as her husband so she refused the marriage offer And also she felt ike a beached whale and he could not possibly really want her because she had unwillingly trapped him by getting pregnant She refused ALL discussions until the very end way way too Integrity Restored: Helping Catholic Families Win the Battle Against Pornography late And even when she should be delivering her baby she ended up behavingike a stubborn spoiled child willing to have all her tantrums realized There s only a few scenes that I The Taste of Night (Signs of the Zodiac, liked in this book which related to the Fincom training program and to Andy the 12 yo just arrived in the foster home The one that showed Cowboy s reaction to the child s trying to buy cigarettes and beer really made me smileLast thing except for this first chapterprologue there was NO action no suspense no nothing but bad romance between a not too bright but nice guy and a stupid idiot Honestly that was one of the When Melody needed someone to rescue her she knew that navy SEAL Harlan Cowboy Jones was just the man for the job But afterward when things got intimate she had to write it off to an adrenaline rus. Nly 2 TDD books I had not read before and I really could have done without Opening Line It was extremelyikely that she was going to dieHarlan Cowboy Jones is the 4th SEAL to get his story told in Suzanne Brockmann s Tall Dark and Dangerous series And while as a whole I am oving these well written addictive stories and their delicious alpha male heroes this one was a etdown It starts out with a addictive stories and their delicious alpha male heroes this one was a etdown It starts out with a of potential exciting action suspense a decent heroine and a arger then ife Navy SEAL hero com This book started out strongly and actually finished okay but in the middle it FAILED MELODY THE HEROINE STARTED OUT Melody the heroine started out such a great character and then deteriorated into such a selfish whiny pig headed btch that I never recovered any respect for her Spoiler AlertI iked Cowboy and I respected that he didn t instantly fall in Exile and Pilgrim love with Melody but was willing to do what was right I dislike the hidden pregnancybaby storyline There are circumstances where it makes sense but this one didn t Her repeated refusal to even consider allowing Cowboy to have anything to do with his own son just galled me There was some poignancy at the end but not enough to redeem the heroine or the book in my eyes Harlan Cowboy Jones was on the SEAL team assigned to rescue three embassy workers from a country taken over by terrorists Melody Evans was one of the three and from the moment Cowboy showed up she had absolute trust that he would save herife Following the rescue they were inseparable for days until it was time for her to return to her ife in Appleton Massachusetts and she ended it knowing what they had wouldn t ast Seven mon I finished this in one sitting I picked the book up just before bedtime and ending up staying until early morningIt s typical feel good fluff that I expect from Brockmann s writing style I Hannah Montana: The Movie like the SEAL hero in this book and the heroine started out strong for me However the reason I give it only three stars is that somewhere in the middle I got tired of the conflict I think the reasons the female was given for not accepting the hero s marriage proposal got weaker and weaker and that is probably meant to be I think it got sueezed out far too it was a good read and I did not regret staying up for it Jones is a Navy SEAL and Melody is one of the hostages he rescues They have a short intense affair and part Predictably because this is romancelandia she turns out to be pregnant and doesn t tell him Melodyives with her nurse sister in a ovely old house in a small pleasant town she wants. H After all she was ooking for an ordinary guy and Cowboy was anything but Too bad their encounter eft Melody with than just memoriesThen Cowboy paid Melody a surprise visit and saw her burgeonin.
