“Too Far Gone is a sexy, emotionally-charged and downright enjoyable, suspenseful romance!”
Is it too much to ask for a little bit of peace and quiet? For Ellie Stuart who is a single mom, finding the time and energy to keep up with her busy life and still tend to her three young and energetic boys, the answer is a definite yes! Goodness knows her life is complicated enough without having a man in her life. When Navy Seal and landlord Sean Harlan stops by to do repairs on his rental property and Ellie’s home, she can’t help but notice how darn sexy he is. Not that she’d ever let herself get mixed up with him. But Sean’s easy manner with the boys and the extra little things he does to make her rented house more of a home for them, can’t help but warm her carefully guarded heart. Though Sean is off-limits, neither of them can fully ignore the sexual tension that flairs between them. One night, as Ellie is driving down a dark back-road, she is viciously attacked by two burly strangers who are intent upon taking her boys. When the kidnappers forcefully remove Ellie from her car, they speed off into the night with her terrified little children still inside. Scared, confused and fearful for her three defenceless little boys, Ellie goes right to the police. Worried and distraught, Ellie is nearly driven over the edge by the time that Sean arrives. What Ellie wouldn’t do to have her boisterous little boys back and wrapped in her loving arms. With friends, Navy and FBI contacts on-board, can Sean and Ellie expose the powerful underground society and find the boys before its too late?
Too Far Gone is a fantastic book that was quick and easy to read.
The plot and storyline is somewhat unique, fascinating, fast-paced and grabs your attention. The characters are realistic and well detailed. I found that Sean had a believable ‘Seal’ mentality. The sex scenes are sensual, erotic and very luscious! I found it only mildly suspenseful but that doesn’t really matter to me because it is such a wonderful book!
I highly recommend it!
