    365 A Buddy read with my friend Jo The Abtastic Ab Loving Geishas despite not having hot man abs on the cover Well another Navy Seal Alpha Dude story of falling in love and doing whatever possible to get the girl of his dreams to accept his love This time it was John Nilsson and the widowed mother of a 10 year old girl Meg The first time they have met was at a foreign country where she helped him pull a stunt which could have endangered people's lives In that instance she had noticed how likable and trustworthy he is and if she had not been married albeit to a cheating bastard she might have considered some flirting with the somewhat younger and quite charming American soldier This time around he is called up from a training exercise and shockingly is told that his old friend Meg has taken the Kazbekistany ambassador at gunpoint as a hostage and he is the only person she is willing to negotiate with The whole SEAL team 16 aka The Troubleshooters travels with him and kind of like the Musketeers they are all for one and one for all “What the hell was she doing on the nonhostage side of a handgun?” Meg is in trouble and has made it even worse but she is ready to do whatever she has to in order to keep her doughtier and grandma who have been kidnapped by terrorists alive She is pushed to the edge and the only person she could think trusting enough to keep her girl safe is John She has never even imagined herself holding hostages and despair is her constant companion Meanwhile Grandma Eve is keeping her great granddaughter occupied with the story of her first love during WWII in England distracting the little girl from the terror she is experiencing while being held by the Kazbekistany terrorists But the girl is not the only one captivated by the story of love and war Their big burly jailer is also riveted and this gives some hope to the old lady that he might show at least a little bit of kindness The story of Eve and Ralph includes the battle of Dunkirk and I loved every second of that tale They were my favorite of the all together three love arcs that were addressed in this book I loved the way Eve was introduced to us A faceful of wrinkles sagging breasts thin gray hair loose skin brittle bones failing memory—wah hoo Let’s have a party She hadn’t minded so much while her husband was alive He’d always managed to make her feel twenty years old and impossibly beautiful But he’d been gone for two years now and for two years all she’d felt was old The main couple Meg and John drove me insane at times Through the whole book Meg was acting like a maniac which is somewhat understandable since the lives of her and her loved ones were in immediate danger However she trusted John enough to call on him but not enough to let him do what he does best and actually help her Her fatalistic view of the situation and her inability to see the big picture was hurtful to both of them and could have ended in many tragic ways Thank goodness John was a professional and cared enough about her to still give her choices where I might have just hit her over the head with a brick and done what needed to be done her opinion and feelings be damned “Fuck sorry” he shouted He was actually shouting at her He was livid “Sorry doesn’t cut it when the bullshit you’ve been shoveling is way up past your head You were just using us You were using me You know Meg when it comes to getting fucked by you I would have preferred finishing what we started three years ago” The third couple consisted of now FBI agent Alyssa Locke and another member of the SEAL team 16 SamHoustonRoger who have a love hate vibe which results in some sizzling sexual tension Pity neither one of them knows what to do with it and they end up acting like fourth graders pummeling each other with insults and ending up hurting each other's feelings They are a team I could really get behind though We will see where the author leads us with them Overall this was a very engaging read with plenty of drama and love but there were little things that bugged me mostly phrases some of the characters threw around which made them seem petty and shallow as well as made wide assumptions of others which bordered on bigotry The fact that it was true on all sides did not made it pleasant but I guess we are supposed to accept that as part of the soldier's life I will continue with the series but I hope it gets better than this book Now I wish you all Happy Reading and my you always find what you need in the pages of a good book
