Too Far Gone

Guest Author - Elizabeth Darrach

Hello, and welcome back! It's chilly and wet here, a perfect fall day to stay inside with a stack of good reading material to keep you warm. And right now, I'm hoping for better reading material. It's a really good thing I still have some November books to read, and some to share with you here.

This time out, I have Marliss Melton's Too Far Gone (Grand Central). Ellie Stuart has recently moved herself and her three young boys to Virginia to start fresh after her messy, ugly divorce. Her sexy bad boy landlord, SEAL Sean Harlan doesn't even tempt her, much, to stray from her new plans. Then her boys are kidnapped, and Ellie has no one to turn to but Sean, and he'll do whatever he can to help Ellie find her boys. That doesn't mean she has to give in to the desire that arcs between them; after all, he's told her himself that he doesn't do long-term, and he definitely doesn't do families. What else should a woman need to keep her head in charge rather than her heart or hormones? This one got off to a rather slow start for me, and doesn't even start with either Ellie or Sean, which, for me, is never a good indicator. Rather than focusing most of the story on the budding romance between this pair, there are a lot of action scenes, other characters' points of view throughout the tale, and plenty of intrigue, which is fine, if you want more mystery than romance. For me, though, that's not a good thing at all, because I prefer more romance than mystery. The ending of this was also rather unsatisfactory for me, but I won't tell you here what happens. Ellie was okay as a heroine for me, concerned about her kids and determined to get them back, no matter what. Sean didn't do anything for me as a hero, though, which didn't help this one in the romance department. I'm afraid this one just isn't a keeper for me. It's earned only two and a half of Cupid's five arrows.

Until next time, happy reading!
