Every book in this TDD series is amazing. Though I am years behind in reading this series, I've been able to catch up with almost all of the books because of PBS.
The SEAL heroes are magnificient, even though Frisco is an ex-SEAL, he is still part of the family of the rough and ready fraterity. Brockmann has a great way of steeping her adventure stories with wonderful heros, strong heroines and great emotional impact.
Excellent 3rd addition to her Seal Team 10 series. Alan "Frisco" Francisco is permanently disabled due to a firefight while with the SEALS. Despite the doctor's warnings, he is determined to achieve a recovery. There's no way he is going to accept offers of help from his neighbor Mia Summerton. He doesn't need anyone's help. Not preachy at all and it shows the hero is a good, honest light - someones who's dealing with a career ending injury.
Forced to face the fact that he may lose his career as a Navy Seal because of a stray bullet, Alan Francisco, call sign "Frisco," takes it hard. But the hardest part of the situation has nothing to do with bullets; it has more to do with babies. When "Frisco's" 5 year old niece is abandonned on his door step, he has more than one man can handle. Will he allow his fetching neighbor Mia Summerton to help him or will he let pride get is his way ?
She couldn't mend his wounded body . . . but could she heal his heart? Being a navy SEAL is more than a career to Alan "Frisco" Francisco -- it is his whole identity. But now a bullet has threatened that existence. How can he function in combat when he can barely walk? Still, despite the doctor's warnings, Frisco is determined to achieve a full recovery.
But the unexpected appearance of his abandoned niece leaves Frisco with little time for anything but dealing with the five-year-old girl. He knows even less about parenting than about how to mend his broken body. And there is no way he's going to accept offers of help from his neighbor Mia Summerton. He doesn't need anyone's help . . . not to care for his niece, not to learn to accept his limitations and certainly not to fall in love.
Surprisingly engaging. I thought this would be shallow and predictable, well, it was predictable, but it was such fun "brain candy" that I enjoyed it and even laughed out loud once or twice. Cute, short, fun little read.
Love this author and this series! Alan "Frisco" Francisco almost dies on a mission. He fights his way back and regains his ability to walk, but will never again run or be an active duty SEAL. The SEALs were his dream since age 11 and he doesn't know who he is without his occupation. Forced to care for his 5 year old niece, he needs to rely on his neighbor, Mia, a feminist, pacifist, and optimistic teacher. Against all odds, they fall in love. Great action sequences as well because a drug dealer tries to use the niece as a hostage. That allows us a glimpse of the SEAL team in action.
New to reading Brockmann - I liked the book. The down side is that I have gotten use to reading books where there is more intimate scenes between the main characters. I made the mistake of reading The Admirals Bride before this one.
