Maybe I'm in the minority, but I thought this book was not very good. This entire plot would have ended if they'd just sat down and talked to each other. Every one of the Seal Team books was so much better to me it was as if a different person wrote them.
One of my least favorite Brockmann books. I thought Melanie was whiny and her sister was a much stronger character (Brittany's book Night Watch is one of my favorites). If you read the TD&Ds you should read this one, but I just did not love it.
This was another great SEAL read from Brockmann. Harlan "Cowboy" Jones rescues Melody Evans from terrorists who have taken over the American embassy where she works. When their extraction plan doesn't go smoothly, they end up spending days and nights together. They share his leave, but at the end of it Melody tells him not to contact her. Seven months later, unable to forget her, he calls only to be turned down again. Undaunted, he shows up on her doorstep where he discovers she's pregnant. She tries to send him on his way, but he returns and sets up a tent in her backyard. There's a nice secondary plot about foster kids and adoption and some good family background on Cowboy. Other books in the series are Frisco's Kid, Forever Blue, and Harvard's Education.
