A Few Good Men

Red, Hot & Blue, Book 7

A Few Good Men was an amazing read. John is deployed and in a war zone. Maureen is a writer back in the states. She is a pen pal of one of John's men. John doesn't want a pen pal until something happens and he comes into contact with her through email. Soon they are emailing as often as possible and feelings are growing. There is chemistry between them even though they have only had contact through email.

Maureen and John are really well written characters with an enjoyable storyline. The secondary characters are well written too. There was a lot of action going on and the story was really cool because of the way things were connected. The dialogue is great. There is plenty of emotion in this story and I liked the way that it was built. It was all very realistic. The sex is fairly explicit but not frequent at all because of the storyline. There was definitely emotion involved by the time that Maureen and John had sex. This is part of the Red, White, & Blue series. This book is a little longer than the others and at first it does not seem connected but it is connected in the end. This book can be read without having read the others, without causing any confusion. It was a great read and I can't wait for more.

Book Blurb for A Few Good Men

He has met the enemy…but he’s never fought desire like this.

Deployed in the deadliest place on earth, Army Staff Sergeant John Blake relies on caffeine, adrenaline, years of training and sheer force of will to get through his days. He has no problem with his tank crew passing around a sexy romance novel, but John’s a fighter, not a lover. He’ll pass.

Winding up as the author’s accidental pen pal wasn’t in his plan, but there’s something about her sweet, caring emails that has him looking forward to checking his inbox.

Week after week, Maureen Mullen, aka erotic romance writer Summer Winters, has dated one loser after another in a quest to find the last decent man on earth. Now it seems she’s found him—halfway around the world. When it comes to falling for unavailable men, she’s batting a thousand.

Gradually, the emails between the war-hardened warrior and the writer of passionate prose heat up to the point of keeping them up warm and wanting at night. Soon they’re wondering if it’s possible to build something solid out of cyberspace, or if it’s just an emotional mirage that will dissolve in the heat of reality.

Warning: Contains some steamy phone calls from the war zone and one hell of a sexy first meeting between two strangers who are already in love.
