    Blackhawks and Weapons

    This series is surprisingly enjoyable. I say surprising cause it is missing key elements I usually think essential in romance. But it makes up for it in, dare I say it, technical detail. The relationship status's lack any real suspense but how can you not like stories about kick-ass military and interesting plots that require unique knowledge to tell them. I hope what I'm "learning" isn't completely wrong but in the end I don't mind.

    Review originally posted at Romancing the Book

    With a mix of military suspense, broken lives and emotions and romantic heat, Wait Until Dark packs a leisurely but intense punch for lovers of this genre!

    This is the first book by this author that I have had the pleasure of reading and I can say that I highly enjoyed his writing style and his ability to really bring forth his characters in a three dimensional way that truly allowed me to care for and feel a connection with them. Wait Until Dark is the third in the Night Stalker series and though I had not read the previous two books in the series, I had absolutely no problem following along with the story line or the characters. With that in mind, this can easily be read as a standalone book or in series order.

    Each of the books focus on a set of characters and this one revolved around Special Agents Connie Davis and John Wallace. Both are part of the SOAR team, the Night Stalkers, a group of highly trained individuals who are brought in at a moment’s notice to deal with highly dangerous military situations and missions. High intelligence, the ability to focus and brute emotional as well as physical strength are absolute necessities. Connie has been alone life since her father was killed on a military mission, when she was a teenager. Her focus has always been to keep her father’s legacy, so to speak, alive by following in his footsteps. However, Connie has built up a wall around herself that not even the toughest bomb could shatter. She knows in her heart that her life is counted day by day and with her career, she could be killed the next day. It is because of that thought she does not allow herself to plan a future for herself, nor does she allow herself to become emotionally connected to others around her.

    John is a strong minded, intelligent, honorable and oh-so-hunky of a guy. He finds himself drawn to Connie and when the team is allowed a few days leave before Christmas, he invites her back to stay with his family instead of going off to be forced to spend that time alone. She hesitates, but in the end relents and goes with him. What she finds is an amazing, loving and accepting family that, if she allows them to, just may make that wall around her heart crumble just a bit.

    For me the story began a bit on the slower side. However, I think that was simply because the beginning is very military focused, as they are on a mission. The storyline did proceed smoothly and in a gentle slope building way. My favorite part was the middle when the story was focused on Connie and John and their growing relationship – both with one another and with Connie and John’s family. The author does an amazing job bringing emotions to the surface all throughout the story, as well as gripping the reader in the fist of what the characters are going through. I have to say, also, that the military aspect of the story was very well plodded out and explained. Mr. Buchman obviously knows his stuff and that shows through in his writing style.

    For those looking for and enjoy a well written military romance, Wait Until Dark is definitely one that you will want to check out! I look forward to reading more by this author in the future!

    Together, John and Connie will venture on what I can assume is the toughest mission for them both.  John’s determination and Connie’s reluctance to let anyone in prove to be a battle neither one are prepared for….but one that will ultimately put the separate pieces of Connie and John together to make a perfectly working whole.
