Ten months ago in Virginia Beach, Navy SEAL sniper Sean Harlan allowed single mother Ellie Stuart and her three preadolescent boys to move into one of his rental properties. Since then he has come around a lot playing with the boys and bringing them presents. He hides his attraction to their mother as he is unsure if he should pursue his feelings or not. Just as confused is Ellie who knows the kids come first, but fears she is falling in love with her SEAL. While driving home on a deserted back road with her three boys,, a van in front of her stops. Two men come out of the vehicle and yank Ellie from her car. They grab the three boys and leave. Ellie calls the police who assume she is responsible for their disappearance and probably killed them. Sean rejects that theory and with Ellie at his side and with the help of his connections begins to investigate. Neither are aware that the Savannah based Centurions led by powerfully connected Owen Dulay is behind the abductions nor do they know that the FBI undercover agent Drake Donavon is investigating Dulay. --- This is a terrific romantic suspense thriller in which the local police are influenced by headlines of mothers killing babies as much as by other evidence that conveniently supports Ellie killing the kids. Ellie quickly learns the hard way how ruthless and amoral her unknown adversary truly is. As a desperate mother, she with Sean leading the way tries to rescue her kids before she is indicted for murder. --- Harriet Klausner

I loved Sean and Ellie. Their story truly held my attention. I kept reading because I was thrilled with the intrigue, the developing love. I couldn't wait for the epilogue to find out a little about the rest of their life together. Instead it dealt with the icky old evil character! Huge disappointment. Wonderful otherwise.

Excellent¿
Too Far Gone is an excellent read for anyone who loves action and mystery with a little romance and just the right amount of sizzle. This book will keep you turning the pages and burning the midnight oil.
Marliss Melton's characters are real, and the story flows to its final conclusion without the reader becoming frustrated with the direction or any side stories becoming too overwhelming. The story was well thought out and well written. It entertained from the opening chapters to the finishing line. I would recommend this as a must-read.

Incredible. Too Far Gone was very well written. Marliss Melton leaves nothing out. Every small sub-plot is neatly tied up. This book was thrilling...with humor, friendship, affection, family loyalty and some really hot Navy SEALs. Couldn't put it down! Can't wait for the next book in the series.
