Editorial Reviews


I absolutely loved this book!!! 
Smutty Kitty
So read this story, for the romance, the hot Marine in uniform and for the sense of family that induces feelings of home and hearth. This is a story that doesn't disappoint and leaves feelings of satisfaction, and happiness when the last page is turned.
For the Love of Bookends

From the Author

After twenty years in the military, my husband and I are concluding our active duty time and moving into retirement. I picked the four settings in this book because they were places we were stationed during those years. Each book is filled with my memories of each place including my favorite places to visit when I am there.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful! September 9, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I so loved this collection of books of 4 brothers in different parts of the service..... Leonardo the US Army, Marco the US Navy, Gianni the USAF and Vincente the USMC. This is a very close knit Italian family. I loved each of their love stories and the fun bantering between them. They had me laughing. Once I started reading Leonardo's story I couldn't stop until I finished Marcos. After a few hours sleep I started Gianni's story and kept reading until I finished Vincente's. The Collection was an easy, enjoyable and fun collection to read. I highly recommend this collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Santinis are a must read! August 25, 2013
By Sheri V
Format:Kindle Edition

Leonardo was a quick read and entertaining from the first page. I quickly fell in love with Leo Santini, he's this big Army hero. He's sexy, sweet and drool worthy. He treats Maryanne "MJ" Johnson like a lady, like someone worth cherishing, all while falling head over heels for her. He has this big tough exterior with this marshmallow center that I just found so loveable.

I loved Maryanne, she's this tiny woman with such a big attitude that she terrifies grown military men. I imagine that comes with being a military brat and a physical therapist. She's quick witted, strong and just the kind of woman to keep a big Army hero in line.

Their banter was one of my favorite parts of this book. The sex was hot and the romance was sweet. I look forward to reading more of this series. I really hope their mom makes plenty of appearances because she reminds me of my mom, and I could tell she loves her sons.

I recommend this for the hot romance and the sexy banter all set into a delicious military romance. Pick up Leonardo and be on the lookout for Marco, the second Santini brother coming soon!


Marco is a Navy SEAL stationed in Hawaii and he's very attracted to his landlady, Alana Kailikea. Alana isn't sure she wants a relationship with a gorgeous SEAL, but Marco can and does break down her walls.
I loved Marco from the beginning, I think it's because he's the quiet brother. I related to him. Alana is strong, beautiful and curvy, a great heroine in my book. I love curvy heroines that are full of life and attitude.

There are few scenes where all four Santinis are together, and the testosterone overload almost melted me. I love these brothers, and each and every one of them intrigues me.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great stories; needs polishing September 1, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Loved the stories and the love portrayed. Each story is diffrent but subtlety connected. My only complaint is the lack of polish. Missing words in sentences, mistakes like " her said to her" instead of "he said to her" and a few other grammatical errors. I was so excited to read the box set based on the reviews each single book received and this box set. Each book's errors got progressively worst. Another bout of editing and it would be a 5 star review.

More About the Author

Born to an Air Force family at an Army hospital, USA TODAY Bestselling author Melissa Schroeder has always been a little bit screwy. She was further warped by her years of watching Monty Python and her strange family. Her love of romance novels developed after accidentally picking up a Linda Howard book. From then on, she was hooked. She read close to 300 novels in one year and decided romance was her true calling instead of the literary short stories and suspense stories she had been writing. After many attempts, she realized that romantic comedy, or at least romance with a comedic edge, was where she was destined to be.

Influences in her writing come from Nora Roberts, Jenny Crusie, Susan Andersen, Amanda Quick, Jayne Anne Krentz, Julia Quinn, Christina Dodd, and Lori Foster. Since her first release in 2004, Melissa has written close to thirty short stories, novellas and novels released with seven different publishers in a variety of genres and time periods. Those releases included a 2005 Eppie Finalist, Two Capa finalists, and an International ebook best seller in June of 2005. Surrender was named top Category Romance by Authors After Dark, and she was named Author of the Year and Most Accessible Author.

Since she was a military brat, she vowed never to marry military. Alas, fate always has her way with mortals. Her husband is an Air Force major, and together they have their own military brats, two girls, and an adopted dog-daughter. They live wherever the military sticks them, which, she is sure, will always involve heat and bugs only seen on the Animal Discovery Channel. In her spare time, she reads, complains about bugs, travels, cooks, reads some more, watches her DVD collections of Arrested Development and Seinfeld, and tries to convince her family that she truly is a delicate genius. She has yet to achieve her last goal.

She has always believed that romance and humor go hand in hand. Love can conquer all and as Mark Twain said, "Against the assault of laughter, nothing can stand." Combining the two, she hopes she gives her readers a thrilling love story, filled with chuckles along the way, and a happily ever after.
