Firstborn by Lindsay McKenna

Jason Trayhern wore his father's glorious military legacy like a thorny crown. Though a skilled fighter pilot himself, Jason's rebel tactics didn't sit well with his commanding officers. They expected more from Morgan Trayhern's son, which was why they gave Jason another chance. But that chance felt like a death sentence. For Jason was going into combat with a new partner. And she was all too…female.

A handsome, arrogant daredevil was the last thing Annie Dazen needed in her cockpit. But once she saw the wounded heart beneath Jason's tough-guy facade, she longed to heal him. And once she discovered the passion in this brooding soldier's touch, she longed to hold him tight. Now the stakes were higher. Because if she hoped to see a future with her would-be hero, they needed to survive their dangerous mission first!

I liked this book, but did not love it. I wanted more. There was something missing. Before I was ready it was over. Lindsay McKenna needs to finish this story or continue it in another book. She did make a mistake on ranks and that bothered me somewhat. But who's perfect?

As a loyal fan of MS Mckenna's early works I was very disappointed with this book. Ms Mckenna has many military books to her credit so... why in book #23 would she get something as simple as military ranks wrong. She has her hero going the wrong directions from a CWO3 to a CWO2 as a promotion. OPPS! If she can't get it right then get a copy editor who can. Military romance readers expect books to get military issues right, or why bother using the military theme. Add to this the plethra of backstory filler about Morgan's story, which her loyal readers know, slowed the pace down considerably and didn't add to the story at all. Even if the reader didn't know Morgan's story so much backstory took away from the H/H own story and it ended abruptly. Had that filler not been there would have been more pages for a more intense story line for this H/H who deserved better care from such a seasoned author. She never created a powerful turning point from which the h/h came to terms with their future. This was more a father/son reunion story rather than a romance. The hero does change in attitude but the transistion was not done through his emotional growth but NA mysticism. There was a lot unsaid here between Morgan and Jason and this reader felt cheated. We see no change in the heroine at all, she comes off as too perfect and not real. The story ended all too quickly leaving a bland taste in my mouth. It would be nice if Ms Mckenna could find her voice again, like her books RED TAIL and BEGINNINGS. If you want a more enjoyable and believable military romance pick up the latest from Suzanne Brockmann, Ingrid Weaver, Merline Lovelace, Catherine Mann or Candace Irvin.
