This reviewer's rating: 3 - Average

An ok read, Ryker is a great character but honestly, they had such a good storyline it was wasted as they didn't flesh it out & make it a longer story.

This reviewer's rating: 4 - Good

What a nice change of pace! The title peeked my initial interest and the cover isn’t bad either. Even though this is the 11th installment in the ‘Always a Marine’ series, I didn’t feel as if I was missing out on anything by not reading the first few books. In fact, this was a very satisfying read but make no mistake – I do want more. Marine, Mary ‘Stormer’ Phillips is home on leave. It’s been ten years since high school and while she loves her parents and wants to be the good daughter, she takes a break to go for a run. During her run she sees her favorite Coffee Shop, so an interlude is a must. While in line Mary runs into an old school friend, Kyle Stewart. Kyle is all grown up and has shed the nerd-look he had going on in high school. Never having the nerve to ask Mary out while in high school, Kyle is bound and determined to not let her get away this time around. I absolutely enjoyed both Mary and Kyle. Mary’s past as a beauty queen is truly fascinating and at first glance seems so contradictory to her military career. Though a short story the reasons behind Mary’s decisions are well conveyed. She’s career military and until she’s unable to do that she will continue to improve lives and make real changes where she can. There’s a scene where she’s talking with Kyle about her part of her time overseas and the dialogue is so clear and heartfelt I couldn’t help but be moved. Kyle is a guy who’s has done very well for himself. You can always tell a lot about a man by the way he treats his mother, and Kyle is good man. He’s a good foil for Mary -- not overly aggressive and not in any way passive. I liked these two a lot and I’m hoping I read more of this couple in future stories. I’m off to find more of this series. Happy Reading folks! Rating: B

No Regrets, No Surrender by Heather Long (Published by: Decadent Publishing Company )
$3.99
Categories: Anthology, Contemporary, Menage a Trois/Quatre

This reviewer's rating: 4 - Good

Picking up about a year after ‘Retreat Hell! She Just Got Here (Always a Marine #2)’, Jasmine Winters, Logan Cavanaugh and Zach Evans return with a longer look at how their happily ever after happens. When I saw this story I was pleasantly surprised to see that it was significantly longer than the others that I read in the series. Logan and Zach have patiently waited for Jazz’s return. They’ve met her at a couple overseas locations where she was able to meet them. At this point, my big questions were – how would this ménage work if Logan and Zach are having exclusively individual relationships with Jazz? I mean how would it work when they’re all living in the same household if a pattern of two and not three had been practiced. I gotta tell ya folks, I don’t know Long’s background with the military or if she’s just done a ton of research but she’ll make a you cry like a two year old throwing a tantrum. When Jazz has to come back from her assignment after an IED explosion I had no clue how I would handle it and folks I didn’t handle it well. When Jazz meets the guys at the airport and she’s in uniform in a wheelchair with her escorts, I had to take a break, go get a glass of water and a box of tissues. I could go on about how war is hell but we all know that and that’s not what this story is about. Instead it’s about Jazz letting Logan and Zach into her heart and letting them help her overcome her challenges. For such a sensitive topic, it’s a relatively short read but Long gets a lot done. She doesn’t mince words with the description of the wounds and the subsequent traumas (strokes, seizures) that happen. Jazz - a marine you are - had a lot to go through to get her mind right so the body can follow and lucky girl, the good news is that Logan and Zach had her back one hundred ten percent of the way. Even in the bedroom, the dynamics had to change because of Jazz’s injuries but the way Long handled the limitations was well done. Of the two guys Logan was the one with the physical injuries from his time in active duty, he had more than enough patience, love and support to offer Jazz. And Zach, oh my, what a man - he was my favorite. He doesn’t have the physical restrictions that Jazz or Logan have and I think that put him on the back burner more than he should be but when he feels the need to express himself he does it quite well. Oorah! If there was a way to have a prequel for Logan and Zach’s story I would love to read that. But that would be hard to do because these guys are straight and that really wouldn’t make for fun reading or would it -- never say never. Happy Reading folks! Rating: B+

Retreat Hell! She Just Got Here by Heather Long (Published by: Decadent Publishing Company )
$2.99
Categories: Anthology, Contemporary, Menage a Trois/Quatre

This reviewer's rating: 4 - Good

Stories about female Marines are few and far between. As a matter of fact, Long is the only one I can find who writes about active Marines who are female. I recently read another one of these series and couldn’t help but look for more and yeah for me I found this one. While on leave, GySgt Jasmine ‘Jazz’ Winters has been set up for a 1Night Stand, by of all people – her own mother. She’s requested not just one man but two, because why not – it’s a fantasy night! Logan Cavanaugh and Zach Evans are former Marines themselves. Logan was wounded during their last tour and was discharged on permanent disability because of his injuries. Zach goes where Logan goes. He's the light to Logan's dark and what a great contrast he is - yummy. Theses three really electrify the pages, so by the time the sex scene came around I was on pins and needles to see how that would turn out. Oh, my goodness Logan you are the man! The only thing missing for me in this short story was finding out the back story to Logan and Zach's relationship. I'm so curious I'm gonna have to find their follow up story - 'No Regrets, No Surrender (Always a Marine, #6)'. Happy Reading folks! Rating: B

I liked this story, I wish it were longer. i would have enjoyed a little more depth in the characters, which is hard to do when its a short story.
