From the Inside Flap
"Beloved and bestselling author Suzanne Brockmann writes terrific edge-of-your-seat novels of romantic suspense set in the world's exciting danger zones and exotic hotspots. Now, in her new sensational novel, she comes stateside for her most action-packed adventure yet.
It was supposed to be a "dog and pony show"--an elaborate demonstration of SEAL rescue techniques--to celebrate a presidential visit to a California naval base. Professional, no-nonsense White House staffer Joan DaCosta arrives early to scope out the area. Assigned to be her SEAL liaison is Lt. (jg) Mike Muldoon, a born leader--strong, decisive, tough, and fearless.
Against her better judgment, Joan finds herself drawn to the handsome young officer. Skilled at being "one of the guys" in the mostly male world of politics, she is dismayed when Muldoon breaks through her defenses. While tension mounts between them, fueling their growing attraction, a far more sinister danger is lurking, as terrorists plot a daring attack against the president. To protect their commander in chief, Joan and Muldoon must not only risk their hearts--but their very lives. . . . --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Like other readers, I initially found this story the hardest in the series (so far) to get along with, and perhaps that is due to there being too many sub plots. Having said that, I loved the inclusion of another significant chapter in the long, slow build-up to Sam and Alyssa's story (Gone too Far).
Personally, I find the historical aspects less interesting, especially in this case as I felt that the main characters, Joan and Mike, desperately needed further development. However, as other readers clearly love them, perhaps the author would like to consider starting a new, wholly historical series, based on the navy frogmen, the "original" SEALS.
So, back to Joan and Mike. I've read this book three times now, and the last time I deliberately skipped all the sub plot text and concentrated wholly on the scenes involving the lead characters. In this less fragmented form, their story was rather short, but overall I gained a much better insight into their relationship and am puzzled as to why so many other readers have found them (especially Joan) to be inadequate.
Mike is gorgeous! Tall, broad and with male-model looks, plus he's superb at handling a team of highly confident, sassy SEALs. The fact that (for at least two good reasons) he's initially less adept when it comes to pursuing Joan is rather touching. But he gets there in the end, and I LOVED the way in which he engineered her surrender. And what's wrong with him being attracted to someone who's a little older with a strong personality? (cue those sexy references to what he'd REALLY like her to do to him!Read more ›
Now, as for 'Into the Night' in particular - well, Joan is in her 30's and wonderful set in how her life should be and boy does Mike Muldoon shake her foundation! When you see the SEAL side of Mike well you are right there smelling the sweat.
The content of the book isn't so great either. I have read the previous four books of this series and I have to admit that I am not very impressed with this one. The story is slow and drags quite a bit, especially for the first 200 odd pages or so. Furthermore, there isn't the same suspense and excitement as there was in the previous books. Hence why it has taken me longer to read this book in comparison to the others. The story and the characters are unexciting and boring. I was expecting more from Suzanne Brockmann.
