About the Author

Siobhan Muir lives in Cheyenne, Wyoming, with her husband, two daughters, and a vegetarian cat she swears is a shape-shifter, though he's never shifted when she can see him. When not writing, she can be found looking down a microscope at fossil fox teeth, pursuing her other love, paleontology. An avid reader of science fiction/fantasy, her husband gave her a paranormal romance for Christmas one year, and she was hooked for good. In previous lives, Siobhan has been an actor at the Colorado Renaissance Festival, a field geologist in the Aleutian Islands, and restored inter-planetary imagery at the USGS. She’s hiked to the top of Mount St. Helens and to the bottom of Meteor Crater. Siobhan writes kick-ass adventure with hot sex for men and women to enjoy. She believes in happily ever after, redemption, and communication, all of which you will find in her paranormal, dauntless romance, and romantic suspense stories.

The story started off with a bang which marked the beginning of the end of the heroine's SEAL team career. I liked that Todd and Chris didn't beat around the bush about taking their friendship to the next level, especially after her drug-induced confessions. The story got going once they both acknowledged that they wanted to bring a third into their relationship. Specifically Jim. Unfortunately, I struggled with getting into the flow of the story, and three things really dampened my enjoyment: The names. Sometimes in dialogue their given names were used while their handles were used in narration. Other times it wasn't unusual to find both used whether in dialogue or narration. The facts. Someone who doesn't have that much Navy knowledge probably wouldn't care or notice, but the few that I found became bothersome to me. The one that stuck out the most was the heroine's promotion from Ensign to Lieutenant, which was wrong. It should have been Lieutenant Junior Grade. It stuck out because over the course of the story, Chris was often referred to as Lt and she called herself “an equal ranking officer”. And all I could hear in my head was a buzzer. The repetition. “Man up”, “pull your head out of your ass”, “he's a better man anyway”, the amount of times their cocks swelled or hardened just from seeing her. The dream sequences and flashbacks weren't in italics, so the transition from the present time to either of those were a jarring interruption in the flow. Todd (Magic) was the glue holding them together. From the moment he got a positive sign from Chris that she wanted to be with him, he became a bit too lovey-dovey: always doting on her and haranguing Jim to “pull his head out of his ass”. Rather than help his best friend, it felt like he tried to bully him into accepting a threesome relationship. Chris began on a strong note and slowly turned into a cliche as the story progressed. As soon as she opened herself up to Todd, gone was the toughness that kept her going as a SEAL, and so was her confidence. Aside from several repeated mentions of how impressed the guys were with her during BUD/S training, there wasn't much character development. The climax portion was a brief breath of fresh air when we get to see Chris in her element again. Jim (Retro). I started out loving him, but the drama of his life dragged on too long. By the half way point I didn't care anymore; about any of them. Two chapters before the end, Jim tells Chris that he has strange needs, that he “loves pleasuring a woman with help”. Then he asks her: “That okay with you?” The whole story was about them inviting him into their marriage, and they'd already had a threesome that didn't happen in a dream. Wrong question at the wrong time. I really wanted to like it more than I did. I think the execution fell flat in places. The overall pacing of the plot was good, the story advanced a few months at a time. I believed their feelings for one another, but more on a professional level as opposed to a romantic one. The sex scenes were scorching hot, but I did skim some parts of them when the nicknames came into play because it wasn't sexy and made them sound detached from the romance. Would I recommend this story? Yes. I think it could appeal to someone who likes angst, a tortured hero and a hot menage. I would still love to read something else by this author.

Serious action begins immediately. The emotional reactions of the characters are well written, and I felt them. The stress of her injury takes an emotional toll on Ghost, and her friends have to find a way to get her spirit back. Ghost then has to deal with the serious changes in her life. Will love help her get back to her old self? I would have scored this higher, but the many spell-checker errors interrupted my reading-flow.
