Backlash by Traci Hunter Abramson
Another series that I love! The Saint Squad is awesome! I hope there's a real one out there. This one is centered on Kel and his wife. You hear mention of them before, when everyone was single, and wonder how they got together. I was very excited to find out! At the point of the book, they have been married five years and are having a few troubles, because Marilyn really doesn't like Kel being a Navy SEAL. After hearing her backstory, it's easy to see why! Her mom doesn't help matters. She writes in her spare time to help think through things and keeps it a secret, due to her lack of self-esteem. Her husband getting shot in the leg on a mission makes it so that they have the opportunity to spend a lot more time together and really get to know each other (which they obviously skipped). I found this book very realistic, except for the part where he only got broth and jello at the hospital. He wasn't going in for surgery and only had a bullet in his leg, does that really call for a lack of food? Either way, it was a fantastic book and I'm very glad I bought the next one at the same time, so I can get started on it. The only problem is that once you start her books, it's hard to put them down and move away. Sorry kids, mom's reading today!
