Dec Pub 7 review of The Two and the Proud by Heather Long‏

The Two and the Proud
Always a Marine  #8
by
Heather Long

Rowdy, went against his family’s Naval tradition to enlist the Marines. He never expected to see as much combat or valor as he did in the field, but every engagement furthered his commitment to his Marine brothers.  Now, with an offer to end his contract early on the table, Rowdy has to take a long look at the life he left behind, the life he’s built, and the future he longs to have.  He wants to be career Marine, but with cutbacks doesn't want to take an other's  job that may  need it.

Inactive Marine, Kim Wakefield, continues to serve her country as a Naval Criminal Investigator for cold cases.  She’s hard on the grunts and sailors because she is one of them—and they didn't sign up for easy. Tired of the seedier side of military life—picking up drunk Marines, AWOL sailors, busting drug running operations, or worse, sending drug addicted servicemen to court marshal and treatment. She longs to have her faith in her fellow Marines restored.  

Both Kim & Rowdy are lonely so they sign up at 1Night Stand.  Thrown together by chance these two jar heads have a combustible chemistry—but do they have what it takes to make it last?

This is a really quick read with characters that capture your heart from the beginning & a plot that keeps you reading until the very end.  The only thing is I wish the story had been longer.  I'd really like to see where things went from where it ended.  This is the first book I've read by this author & I'm interested in reading more by her.
I rate this book 4 stars
