engaging characters, and a plot that grabs me from the beginning I confess that this story was one I hesitated over because of the situation of the romantic pair, but my hesitation was over ridden by interest in other aspects of the story And in the end, I can say that I m glad I gave it a go.This is the second full length book in the Echo Platoon series The story works just fine as a standalone Each story is self contained with brief mentions in this one of the pair from the last book I suspect that will be true of all the books as each SEAL gets his story.Brant Bronco Adams is the easy and happy go lucky member of his team He loves his job and has a zest for life as a former bronc rider now turned SEAL After seeing the way his mom hurt when his dad loved her and left her , he swore that he would never do that to any woman He never wants to have a relationship and make some woman fall in love with him only to disappoint her He s doing pretty good at keeping things light and easy until his friendship with the commander s wife starts to take a turn toward attraction Getting involved with her is career suicide let alone wrong on a few levels However, caution goes by the way when Becca shares something suspicious about his commander and hints that things aren t that good at home Brant will help her sort through this dangerous new revelation and try to keep his hands to himself.Becca married Mad Max McDougall with stars in her eyes not realizing the controlling, cold man he really is It is when she finds herself attracted to the fun loving and kind Bronco that she realizes what a big mistake she made Her disillusionment becomes the least of her worries when she accidentally comes across something on Max s laptop that leads her to the suspicion that something is really wrong In desperation, she turns to Bronco and what he uncovers starts a dangerous clandestine mission to get the proof they need that will both protect her and free her from the entanglement she has gotten herself into Meanwhile, they both fight the attraction between them Bronco doesn t do long term and Becca knows that the strong feelings she is developing are going to get her burned, but maybe not before Max s secrets get her or Bronco killed.This story sets up the romance and suspense elements quickly and then develops them There is a goodly amount of tension in fact, it feltthriller at times Bronco, Becca, and Max share the majority of the narration Having Max s perspective didn t lessen the tension, but changed it because the reader is left wondering if he ll figure out that he s under investigation or if panic and do something drastic There is the tension of Bronco and Becca trying to be so discreet and whether they ll get caught out Things built to an exciting climax that left me breathless until the denouement.Now, I mentioned that the romance was a touchy concern for me I don t like it when a relationship begins while one or both characters are in an existing relationship with someone else Naturally, this one was not a cut and dry issue Becca s marriage was untenable by the time the attraction with Bronco was acknowledged The author allowed them to slip up with a few kisses, but nothinghappened until Becca was separated from Max I was uncomfortable, but still able to enjoy their story mostly because the relationship took its time and carefully built on short, solid moments together Bronco was a great hero He s attractive in looks and personality while also being protective and caring It was sad that a guy who was fierce some and brave in the face of everything else was scared that he would become his dad and hurt the woman he loved Becca is a gentle soul with simple needs She, too, was affected by her dad s desertion and didn t realize she married Max to fulfill that hole only to discover what real love and being with the one you loved and who loves you looks like I enjoyed watching them help heal each other, work together to sort out Max s dangerous mess, and tentatively forma a relationship The author writes good villains She writes both the utterly black hearted types and the conflicted villains Tony was the first type, but Max was a complex character that fascinated methe the hero and heroine did at times.On a side note, I appreciate that the SEAL team actually goes out on a mission and that there is interaction between the members The team helps Bronco figure out what is going on and has his back Bronco s best friend is the zen like, bookish Jeremiah Bullfrog and Sam is there to give him advice.As to the narrator, Armen Taylor, was new to me, but I would definitely enjoy books he narrates He did well with the range of mostly male and some female characters His pacing was good and his storytelling didn t distract, but kept me engaged in the story.In summary, I was hesitant, but glad I took the plunge I enjoy what the author brings to military romantic suspense and look forward to each new installment in this series I love the strong SEAL heroes, exciting action plots, and passion filled romance particularly because each story offers up something a little different and not cookie cutter in action or romance Lovers of military romantic suspense should give these a look see.My thanks to the author for a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review I m usually a big fan of Marliss Melton but I think she just went through the motions on this book The premise was good but that s about the only good thing about it There wasn t much hmmm, any depth to the characters Mad Max repeated the same thoughts over and over again Melton could have really upped the crazy factor with him to make the storyinteresting but she didn t We know that he is obsessed with his wife and is very controlling but it s because we are repeatedly told that I m usually a big fan of Marliss Melton but I think she just went through the motions on this book The premise was good but that s about the only good thing about it There wasn t much hmmm, any depth to the characters Mad Max repeated the same thoughts over and over again Melton could have really upped the crazy factor with him to make the storyinteresting but she didn t We know that he is obsessed with his wife and is very controlling but it s because we are repeatedly told that instead of being there when it happens There s absolutely no action just lots and lots of thoughts He s worried that all of his secrets are coming out and he constantly wonders if Bronco knows the secrets We hear that about a million times As for Bronco, he s a player and we know why he has his name and that he s got a great body but that s about it Again, this is repeated over and over Rebecca does not act like an abused wife verbally abused in this case She s not cowering or fearful even on the rare occasion when Mad Max actually goes off on her There just wasn t enough there to make me like her or hate her and that really applies to all of the characters The pages and pages of medical scenes were filled with so many glaring errors that could have easily been fixed if she had taken the time to have an ER or critical care nurse to read them I know that sounds very nit picky but over the top medical stuff drives me crazy If I take the time to read a book then I hope it s as accurate as it can be in portraying real life situations and Melton obviously didn t do her research on this one the op to Cuba is another good example.Bottom line would I recommend this book No There are much better books out there This one disappointed me on so many different fronts and I think a 2 star rating is being generous slogged through this to finish a heroine I really did not like at all so many tstl decisions. SpiceWell nothing like finding who you married isn t who who you thought Then finding the the right one Only to go through hell to get there Ahh drama.Gotta love it.

from her , Brant agrees to help her find out what is going on What happens next will change the course of their lives forever.I love SEALS Sometimes I don t even read the blurb if I see SEAL in the book title I just buy it That s how obsessed I am with these hot, sexy, super disciplined, well trained guys who put their lives on the line going on dangerous missions I am also a big fan of thetraditional romantic suspense novels, so a combination of the two styles would be right up my alley No Well, sadly, this book has a few problems Some are my own personal issues, so I ll get my old fuddy duddy views out of the way first Adultery under any circumstances is a sensitive issue for me Yes, Max was abusive, dangerous, and puts Rebecca in the cross hairs, but two wrongs don t make a right So, I had some problems with that set up, but again that s just me.However, the issues continued as several times I felt the plot went overboard and became highly implausible.I also had some issues with Rebecca s character She wasn t the too stupid to live type of female protagonist, but she was too dependent on men to save her, making her character lean to much in the damsel in distress category which is often off putting to some modern readers Max s protection was a way to control her, but Brant s constantly saying he would protect her, which was meant as a romantic gesture, became a little redundant and made Rebecca s character too docile and bland.One other thing bothered me a little about this book which was, at times the story felt a little dated I kept thinking this book reminded me of romantic suspense written in the 1990 s, only with a few references to cell phones and Facebook pages thrown in here and there to give it aup to date feel However, this is not a reissue to my knowledge.Having said all that, Brant s back story explains why he has kept women at arm s length and refused to entertain the notion of a relationship But, he genuinely likes Rebecca, enjoys her company, and respects her, which makes a casual affair distasteful to him, although he struggles with these new feelings and fights it for a while But in the end, he folds nicely, allowing love to work it s special magic on him Brant s character growth was the highlight of the story and made the time invested in the book worthwhile.Although this book wasn t one MY favorites, it might be something those who enjoy romantic suspense and military heroes might want to look into, despite some of my misgivings This author is a seasoned writer and I have enjoyed her novels in the past and I am sure I will again in the future Simply WOW An amazing addition to the Echo Platoon series Hard Landing is Book 2 in the amazing Echo Platoon series, but can be read as a stand alone, although, I
