I really liked the Penny character. She is such a responsible older sister - always doing what is best for everyone to the point that she is almost boring. She is definitely the "good" daughter! It's when she gives in to her own desires and starts a relationship with Joe that she comes to life. She is willing to suffer heartache for a short time with Joe. By taking that big chance, she and Joe truly grow and find what they are missing in their lives. The mystery of Penny's father's death is an integral part of the book, but the relationships hold the book. I liked Lia, Penny's sister and she deserves her own story!
This is an excellent book!!! I love anything to do with Navy Seal books or other books that have men in the service. It was also cute that Penny was the last person you would expect Joe, the playboy, to hook up with. I loveed it!
