Bobby Taylor is a Navy SEAL, and his best friend is his swim buddy, Wes Skelly. As Wes ships out on an assignment, he asks Bobby to go to Boston to look out for his younger sister, Colleen, who is doing stuff that has big brother in overprotective mode. Bobby goes, but is full of reservations because his feelings for Colleen Skelly are far from brotherly. As this is a serial romance novel, you can probably guess where the plot goes from there.
The dialogue is snappy and characters are very well drawn. The conversations between Wes and Bobby, as well as the brief appearances of other SEALs from earlier books work very well.
My only knock would be that we never learn much about Bobby's background and history. Normally I wouldn't notice this, but in all of the other Team Ten Books the heroes had a history that was explained, so its absense was noted here.
There is a good segue to the next book in the series (expected to be Wes' story) at the end. All of the Suz Brockmann fans who have been waiting impatiently for the next installment of her Team Ten books will be pleased with this effort.

Looking for a few hours of fun? You don't need sinfully rich chocolate, smooth whiskey or riveting conversation with an intriguing man. You only need this book! "Taylor's Temptation" is the latest in the Tall, Dark and Dangerous series from Suzanne Brockmann. It tells the story of Chief Petty Officer Bobby Taylor. After an injury during a Navy SEAL mission, Bobby is on R&R and is talked into doing a favor for his best friend and partner since BUD/S training, Wes Skelly. Wes's sister, Colleen is involved in something that could lead her to a foreign country that is overrun with terrorist groups. That is where Bobby comes in. To talk some sense into her. The catch is that he's always considered her his best friend's kid sister - but she's all grown up now and has her eye on Bobby! This book is ENJOYMENT with a capital "E". By page 3 I was grinning like a loon. By page 15 I had a tear in my eye and a warm feeling in my heart as I re-visited some of the other members of Alpha Squad. This book is a great continuation of a powerful series, or can be read and enjoyed on its own. But beware: this book will cause your face to hurt from all the smiling! I've read them all and I believe this one is my absolute favorite! Brava Ms Brockmann! Can't wait for the next installment.

I am a huge fan of SB. I've read all her books. And I do like the Navy SEAL series, though I notice the thing keeping the hero and heroine apart pretty much always is the same: The hero is a busy SEAL who is gone on missions all the time, and he just can't imagine any woman putting up with that for long, so he avoids serious commitment.
Thankfully, SB does add another wrinkle to this book to keep it from being totally predictable: Bobby, the hero, who figures he can only offer a fling to the heroine, Colleen, since he is never home, feels too guilty to do that because it would betray the trust of the heroine's brother, Wes. Wes is Bobby's best friend and warned Bobby that he better never go to bed with his "little" sister.
OK, this brings me to the heroine. I put in my header that I think she's irritating, and here's why: SB, through this heroine, brings up the well-known fact that in the big, bad city, women often feel unsafe. Colleen hates being leered at and her body commented on by men. She is a "stacked" 23-year-old, the kind of woman that gets lots of whistles and catcalls. So what does she do about that sort of thing? Mainly just resent and ignore it. She chooses to live and work in a very bad part of town, and she takes no precautions at all for her safety or the safety of any other women she knows and works with. Not only does she have no knowledge of self-defense (which you'd think her overprotective SEAL brother would have insisted she get years ago), but she has no basic common sense either. Her only "weapons" are charm and refusing to back down even when faced with a threatening group of men.

I'm hooked on this series, and have been waiting for months for this book to come out, ever since I read an excerpt on Suzanne Brockmann's website. Sometimes that kind of anticipation can lead to real disappointment when the book finally does come out, but happily that didn't happen. Bobby, the tall, dark, and usually quiet Seal team member has been in love with his best friend's sister, Colleen Skelly, for years. Colleen has also wanted Bobby for years. So when Wes asks Bobby to go to Boston to talk Colleen out of going on a dangerous earthquake relief mission to Tulgaria, Colleen uses this time alone with Bobby without her brother to seduce his best friend. Loved the character of Colleen Skelly and I was very glad that Bobby ended up with a very strong woman. Loved how Colleen and Bobby interacted with each other, and had to laugh out loud several times at his reactions when she would come on to him. Oooooooh boy, did Bobby and Colleen have sparks flying! They are hot. Suzanne Brockmann has a way with drawing characters out and making them feel like real people, that just draws you into their lives. Wes's reaction when he found out about his best friend and his sister was dead on. I did have a couple small problems with the book though. First of all, it just seemed like Bobby took the whole "your my best friend's sister, so I can't get involved with you" thing just a little too far. It went on for over half of the book, and even after they were involved, he still used Wes as an excuse. It was begining to get a little annoying, but their interactions were still great even through all this. The other thing that has been bugging me. Does it seem to anyone else who reads this series that Wes Skelly has grown taller over the past few books?Read more ›
