This book has a rather unfinished feel to it. I was looking forward to reading it, because Bobby Taylor has been one of SB's original SEALs and I wanted to get inside his mind. Unfortunately, I didn't. The plot mostly consisted of Colleen Skelly throwing herself at him while Bobby kept running because his friend Wes would kill him if he touched her. Eventually, of course, she caught him, and towards the end there was a little bit of SEAL type action, but nothing to get excited about. The main trouble is that you never felt you were getting to know Bobby. There was no mention of his family, of why he joined the SEALs or anything personal. At one point, he baked a coffee cake for breakfast. There was no reason given for why he could bake, or why he throught coffe cake was a suitable after-passion breakfast. I was also unhappy about the fact that Colleen was the one taking all the emotional risks while Bobby just kept running. That said, it was still a good yarn, with one or two excellent scenes in it.

I'm an avid fan of Suzanne Brockmann, and TT is still a keeper, but.. there is very little action in this book - most of the "supporting cast" that often makes the books (Joe, Blue, Ronnie, Crash, PJ Harvard etc)don't appear until the end if at all. Bobby spends most of the book self-analyzing and mentally wringing his hands over falling for his best friend's sister and it gets a little tedious after a while. Good yes, but not up there with Frisco's Kid, Get LUcky, The Admiral's Bride, which had the whole team racking up against serial rapists, mob kidnappers and poison-stealing racist terrorists. Nevertheless, still worth reading.

Bobby and Colleen are really well matched as a couple. Bobby is struggling against his powerful feelings about Colleen because she is his best friends' sister...but things get complicated because she more than likes him. Reading this powerful love story is funny, entertaining and sizzles the pages in this compelling drama about love denied. Well worth the read!!!

Bobby Taylor is a Navy SEAL who has had a crush on his best friend's sister for years. The sister, Coleen, has also had a crush on Bobby for just as long. Of course, neither knew how the other felt. Coleen tries to seduce Bobby but he rejects her because his friend has threatened to kill him if he touches his sister. Coleen is planning on going with a group of volunteers to a small war torn country. Her brother, Wes, has sent Bobby to talk Coleen out of this trip. When she won't be swayed from her decision, he talks to the admiral and a team of SEALs are sent to protect the group. Bobby is one of the team.

I liked Bobby a lot but didn't like Colleen. I thought she would be a smart woman since she was in law school but she was not smart at all. She did so many things that showed her lack of common sense that I can't figure out how she was still alive! For instance, she had to sell her vintage car because she was so broke. It never occurred to her to stop her pro bono work so she wouldn't be so broke. Then sleeping with her windows open with easy access from the outside. She thinks she can talk herself out of dangerous situations with gangs. Oh yeah, she is insisting on being a volunteer going to a small war torn country to help remove some orphans.

HASH(0x8db6806c) out of 5 stars Another well-done installment in the Team Ten Series 3 July 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Bobby Taylor is a Navy SEAL, and his best friend is his swim buddy, Wes Skelly. As Wes ships out on an assignment, he asks Bobby to go to Boston to look out for his younger sister, Colleen, who is doing stuff that has big brother in overprotective mode. Bobby goes, but is full of reservations because his feelings for Colleen Skelly are far from brotherly. As this is a serial romance novel, you can probably guess where the plot goes from there.
The dialogue is snappy and characters are very well drawn. The conversations between Wes and Bobby, as well as the brief appearances of other SEALs from earlier books work very well.
My only knock would be that we never learn much about Bobby's background and history. Normally I wouldn't notice this, but in all of the other Team Ten Books the heroes had a history that was explained, so its absense was noted here.
There is a good segue to the next book in the series (expected to be Wes' story) at the end. All of the Suz Brockmann fans who have been waiting impatiently for the next installment of her Team Ten books will be pleased with this effort.

HASH(0x8d7078a0) out of 5 stars Taylor's Temptation gets an A plus! 1 July 2001
By RobinH - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Looking for a few hours of fun? You don't need sinfully rich chocolate, smooth whiskey or riveting conversation with an intriguing man. You only need this book! "Taylor's Temptation" is the latest in the Tall, Dark and Dangerous series from Suzanne Brockmann. It tells the story of Chief Petty Officer Bobby Taylor. After an injury during a Navy SEAL mission, Bobby is on R&R and is talked into doing a favor for his best friend and partner since BUD/S training, Wes Skelly. Wes's sister, Colleen is involved in something that could lead her to a foreign country that is overrun with terrorist groups. That is where Bobby comes in. To talk some sense into her. The catch is that he's always considered her his best friend's kid sister - but she's all grown up now and has her eye on Bobby! This book is ENJOYMENT with a capital "E". By page 3 I was grinning like a loon. By page 15 I had a tear in my eye and a warm feeling in my heart as I re-visited some of the other members of Alpha Squad. This book is a great continuation of a powerful series, or can be read and enjoyed on its own. But beware: this book will cause your face to hurt from all the smiling! I've read them all and I believe this one is my absolute favorite! Brava Ms Brockmann! Can't wait for the next installment.

HASH(0x8d51b798) out of 5 stars Hero fabulous, heroine very irritating 17 Aug. 2001
By Tammy Golden - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I am a huge fan of SB. I've read all her books. And I do like the Navy SEAL series, though I notice the thing keeping the hero and heroine apart pretty much always is the same: The hero is a busy SEAL who is gone on missions all the time, and he just can't imagine any woman putting up with that for long, so he avoids serious commitment.
Thankfully, SB does add another wrinkle to this book to keep it from being totally predictable: Bobby, the hero, who figures he can only offer a fling to the heroine, Colleen, since he is never home, feels too guilty to do that because it would betray the trust of the heroine's brother, Wes. Wes is Bobby's best friend and warned Bobby that he better never go to bed with his "little" sister.
OK, this brings me to the heroine. I put in my header that I think she's irritating, and here's why: SB, through this heroine, brings up the well-known fact that in the big, bad city, women often feel unsafe. Colleen hates being leered at and her body commented on by men. She is a "stacked" 23-year-old, the kind of woman that gets lots of whistles and catcalls. So what does she do about that sort of thing? Mainly just resent and ignore it. She chooses to live and work in a very bad part of town, and she takes no precautions at all for her safety or the safety of any other women she knows and works with. Not only does she have no knowledge of self-defense (which you'd think her overprotective SEAL brother would have insisted she get years ago), but she has no basic common sense either. Her only "weapons" are charm and refusing to back down even when faced with a threatening group of men. (When that second technique worked, it was only because, unknown to her, Bobby was standing behind her giving his mean face to this fearful gang--and even this obvious proof that her "technique" didn't work didn't wake her up.)
More insanity: Colleen actually sleeps with the windows wide open in her apartment, with a fire escape right beneath one of them. And when Bobby is mad about her death wish, she just laughs at him, as if personal safety is a joke. Also, even though a woman she works with was put in a coma from being beat up by mutual enemies, the heroine refuses to take any precautions because she won't take the threat seriously. On top of that, she plans to go into a war-torn Middle-eastern country filled with genocidal terrorists to help neglected, mixed-race orphans--which, OK, sounds noble on the face of it. But...the idiot is dragging along 11 other civilians as dumb as her about safety. AND, to make it worse, she refuses to even consider that Bobby, who insists on going along and has gotten a SEAL team to protect them, might know more about safety than she, and that she should defer to him to save her butt. No way. Her independence is all, even at the cost of her life and that of others. What a jerk!
I think that it is great that romance heroines are getting stronger all the time, but this woman is suicidally cocky. How does this presentation of a "strong" woman help women? The answer is, it doesn't. I believe SB needs to read Gavin DeBecker's Gift of Fear and Beauty Bites Beast before she writes her next book and get real about what strong women really look like. Maybe then she can give us a heroine who exists for more in a story (other than sex scenes with the hero) than to stupidly put herself and others in danger so the big, bad SEAL hero can save her from herself.

HASH(0x8d4cd2ac) out of 5 stars Loved it! 3 July 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I'm hooked on this series, and have been waiting for months for this book to come out, ever since I read an excerpt on Suzanne Brockmann's website. Sometimes that kind of anticipation can lead to real disappointment when the book finally does come out, but happily that didn't happen. Bobby, the tall, dark, and usually quiet Seal team member has been in love with his best friend's sister, Colleen Skelly, for years. Colleen has also wanted Bobby for years. So when Wes asks Bobby to go to Boston to talk Colleen out of going on a dangerous earthquake relief mission to Tulgaria, Colleen uses this time alone with Bobby without her brother to seduce his best friend. Loved the character of Colleen Skelly and I was very glad that Bobby ended up with a very strong woman. Loved how Colleen and Bobby interacted with each other, and had to laugh out loud several times at his reactions when she would come on to him. Oooooooh boy, did Bobby and Colleen have sparks flying! They are hot. Suzanne Brockmann has a way with drawing characters out and making them feel like real people, that just draws you into their lives. Wes's reaction when he found out about his best friend and his sister was dead on. I did have a couple small problems with the book though. First of all, it just seemed like Bobby took the whole "your my best friend's sister, so I can't get involved with you" thing just a little too far. It went on for over half of the book, and even after they were involved, he still used Wes as an excuse. It was begining to get a little annoying, but their interactions were still great even through all this. The other thing that has been bugging me. Does it seem to anyone else who reads this series that Wes Skelly has grown taller over the past few books? They have never said his exact height until this book, but in the first few they always described him as being short and wiry. And he was definately described as being short compared to ALL other members of the Seal team. Then in the last book he somehow ended up at around the same height as Blue, and now he is 5'11". Now this may not be the jolly green giant or anything, but I am only 5'3" and I was kind of looking forward to Wes's book since he wasn't going to be really tall. I didn't expect him to be as short as I am, but still I am disappointed that he has been made to be tall after all. It seems he only appeared to be short because he was always seen with Bobby, who is extremely tall. This just seemed to be sort of a cop out to me.

HASH(0x8d28e2a0) out of 5 stars ONE OF THE BEST OF the TALL, DARK, And DANGEROUS 15 April 2002
By K. Caspari - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I have recently read alot of Suzanne Brockmann, and I have to say that this book of her Tall, Dark and Dangerous series is the best that I have read so far. Bobby Taylor is a great character and being a redhead myself, Colleen Skelly is whom every women should strive to be. Talk about a backbone and daring. She goes after what she wants. I love Suzanne Brockmann and eagerly await any of her new novels. READ THIS BOOK!!!!
