I enjoyed reading The Only Easy Day because of the characters, the pacing, and the story.
I did, however, have a couple minor quibbles with it. While I liked Dale and Joseph in and of themselves, I'm not entirely sure if I can see them together in the long run (but that may just be me). A part of that may be due to another quibble I had - the timing (which may also work in favor of the relationship) of the feelings they develop.
Even while I did enjoy reading the story, and look forward to the next Sanctuary story, at this point in time I find myself liking Guarding Morgan a smidgen better than The Only Easy Day.
One dead girl, one scared witness, and two men trained as Navy SEALs. Whether searching for justice or revenge, the final showdown between them is the same.... explosive!
Dale MacIntyre, former Navy SEAL, works for Sanctuary. He's the acting handler for a member of the Bullen familys inner circle. He is close to obtaining the evidence he needs to prove Elisabeth Costains death was ordered by them... until someone gets in his way.
Joseph Kinnon, active Navy SEAL, is back on US soil for the first time in months, and he is told the tragic news that his stepsister is dead, gunned down in an alley by an unknown assailant. He is determined to find out who murdered her... until someone gets in his way.
They both want the same thing but have different methods of accomplishing their goals. They both want the Bullen family brought to account, but one wants justice and the other wants revenge.
What happens between them, however, has nothing to do with either.
