Overview

Next to Die by Marliss Melton

Penny Price dreads the sound of her ringing phone. She's convinced that the person barraging her with threatening calls is a man who got away with murder--her father's. Armed with evidence but branded a target, Penny's only salvation is the playboy nextdoor--Navy SEAL Lieutenant Commander Joe Montgomery. The sole survivor of the worst disaster in Special Forces history, Joe has been drowning his guilt in a potent mix of alcohol and isolation. Penny refuses to indulge his behavior and a tentative friendship begins, charged with desire. But as her father's killer sets his sights on Penny, all bets are off. The killer will do anything to protect his identity and Joe fears Penny is...NEXT TO DIE.

This book was good, i liked the chemistry between lia and vinny. The main characters didn't have as much chemistry to me. Lia made too much of a big deal about vinny's age as someone else commented. I didn't like that joe and penny took so long to get together, and I thought it was really tacky that penny almost had sex in joe's 'the man she's inlove with' hot tub, with someone else.

I loved the main character Penney, who is everything a real heroine should be, compassionate, caring, courageous and with a beautiful heart. Of course Joe, the hero is not perfect and at first fails to recognize what a gem Penney is. As with all her other novels lesser characters are part and parcel of the story and the reader knows they will have their own book.

Again, another great book by Marliss Melton. I do have to agree with a previous review that there did seem to be more chemistry between Lia and Vinny than there was between Joe and Penny. Still kept me hooked from the first page. Read Forget me Not, In the Dark and Time to Run before reading Next to Die.

I have enjoyed all her books and this one was the best so far!

Another good addition to the SEAL Team 12 series. Why did I give it a four? 1. Editing which is a problem with 90% of the books I¿ve read in the last few years. I need to apply for a job as a proof reader since no one else seems to be doing it. 2. Too much was made of the age difference between Vinny and Ophelia. She was FOUR years older than him, not fourteen! 3. Ophelia used her sexual appeal to get a job. 4. Not enough mystery. But am looking forward to the next book!

Penny and Lia Price thought they lost their father to an automobile accident but after reading his journal they are convinced that one of his work partners was killed him. Their father believed the person responsible is Eric because he needed money to take care of his very ill wife. Lia confronts Eric who warns her she better keep quiet. She moves into Penny¿s home as a safety precaution. Joe, a SEAL who lost his squad in Afghanistan is Penny¿s next door neighbor. She is attracted to him but he hardly even notices her as he is in pain physically and mentally from the wounds he received in combat. Penny, who is frightened that Eric will go after her, comes to Joe trying to help him as she is a physical therapist. The more time he spends with Penny the deeper his feelings grow for her. When Eric is murdered, they realize he was the puppet not the puppet master. When nothing happens to her, police protection is withdrawn and that is when the mastermind strikes. --- There are two romantic subplots in NEXT TO DIE Penny and Joe, and Lia with Vinny a SEAL who is four years younger than her. He challenges her as he woos her not realizing that she is in danger from a murderer. Readers will find him adorable and Lia spunky. Joe and Penny make a great pair as he allows her to heal him by giving him her warmth and he makes her feel wanted. There is a lot of action and suspense in Marliss Melton¿s latest romantic suspense, a work that is as exciting as at is heartwarmingly riveting. --- Harriet Klausner
