Military Men Monday

Happy second day of spring! Hope everyone had a great weekend. The weather here was great but woke up this morning to pouring rains. Nothing like starting my day cold and wet. But never fear! I see the sun now and hope it stays for awhile. Soccer practice should be fun this evening in the mud! Besides they say mud is good for the skin. Speaking of things that are good let’s start with Kaylea Cross’s book Cover of Darkness. I enjoyed reading it and hope you do too.

Cover of Darkness by Kaylea Cross
Targeted by a terrorist cell, Bryn McAllister survives a bombing at the U.S. Embassy in Beirut only to be left to die in a desert cellar. When she is rescued by Navy SEAL Lieutenant Declan McCabe and his team, Bryn must rely on the handsome officer to get her to safety. But just when she thinks the nightmare is over, family friend and legendary CIA operative Luke Hutchinson recruits her and McCabe to help track down the terrorist mastermind responsible for the attack.

With Bryn determined to see the terrorist brought to justice, Dec joins up to protect her, prepared to do whatever it takes to keep her safe during their dangerous mission. Battling the explosive attraction between them, Dec fights to keep his distance from her so he can do his job and keep her alive. But when plans falls apart and Bryn is captured, he must make the agonizing choice between his duty as a SEAL and the life of the woman he loves.

I have to admit that it took me awhile to get into this book. The story is super as are the characters. It is very military detailed. Which kinda bogged it down for me. But that is just me. I completely appreciate the detail that she put into it. Our men and women that put their lives on the line for us everyday deserve to be represented to their truest form and Kaylea certainly did them justice. It also brings to light the lives of those loved ones that get left behind when their other half is called to duty and basically have to drop off the face of the earth to go under cover.

The main characters Dec and Bryn are great. I also enjoyed Ben, Bryn’s bodyguard/head of security. Ben has feelings of more than friendship for Bryn but knows that she doesn’t feel the same. She loves Ben like a brother. Which must be difficult for Ben to deal with on a daily basis since they spend so much time together. I look forward to his book!

I give this book 3 chocolate dipped strawberries and a spa day. I really felt for Bryn as she trudged thru the desert and survived the hostage situations.
