I liked that no punches were pulled when it came to Frisco's injury and what it meant for him as a SEAL. I also liked this relationship with his niece, what she has been through and how it affected her was heartbreaking.
I think it was the main romantic relationship that just didn't grab me as I wanted it to.
Because I don't want to be a writer when I grow up, I can only glory in the fact that Brockmann writes for women like me, and I spent money on her books because I know that I'm going to enjoy them.
So, here's the plot.
After five years of intensive therapy on a bum knee, Alan 'Frisco' Francisco has been given his walking papers to leave the Navy. See yah, wouldn't want to be yah. Of course, Frisco takes the news hard, and retreats to his condo in California, and is torn between accepting his fate, and getting stinking drunk.
But before he can do that, Sharon, his sister gives her daughter (Natasha) to Frisco for safe keeping, because she has to serve a DUI (if it weren't for bad luck, eh Frisco?). Mia, his winsome next door neighbour is a peacenik (and all that implies) and the thought of sharing her complex with a soldier (she doesn't really understand what a Navy SEAL is, bless), but her heart goes out to his niece and she tries to help Frisco to adjust to his situation in the best way that she can.
Of course, because Ms Brockmann seems to like her action, there's a subplot of money laundering, alcoholism, a local hood making trouble and the SEALS lending a helping hand that really works.
Although this book was written over a decade ago, it's still fresh, almost crisp. You can see Ms Brockmann straining to be away from the limitations of the romance genre into gen fic.
Not many writers can make that transition, so y'all wanna be romance writers better read, and make note.
For us who actually like men in uniform (not lust, but really like 'em), Brockmann is tops.

Mia discovers that the career soldier is more than she imagined, and when Frisco finds that he has to rely on help from others, Mia is happy to oblige. As he begins to rely on her more, and their feelings become more intense, the thought of being incapacitated for life makes Frisco run from his feelings. At the same time his sister's former lover is starting to make waves and threats against Natasha. When those threats become a reality, he calls on the salt water cowboys to aid in the rescue.
Brockmann's third in the SEAL Alpha Team series (Prince Joe; Forever Blue) is one of her more bittersweet stories, as Frisco is stripped of his identity and is faced with an uncertain future he is not sure he wants to burden another with.
Well, for the price I shouldn't really expect a really long story. It's something that I will re-read when i'm in the mood for something quick and funny.
