As a veteran of Naval Aviation, I can appreciate the authenticity of the story and characters.
I volunteer for the USO and highly recommend both of Heather's books to all of the military personnel who come through our facility.
Really looking forward to the next novel!
Things to ponder: Will Daisy and Sky ever overcome the tragedies in their past to get together? Will Sky ever get help for his PTSD? Will Daisy ever open her heart to love again?
This second in the Love In The Fleet series grabbed me in from the very beginning. The author weaves a tale that brings together all the threads in the end which makes for great storytelling. This is one action-packed sexy read. Throw in some drug smuggling and a dangerous mission and you will be riveted to the edge of your seat. I loved the cameo appearances of some favorite characters from Forgive and Forget. This book kept me up all night so I could finish and see how it all turned out. I can’t wait to read the next in this pleasing series. Heather, I hope you are busy planning and plotting your next book. So if you like a story that is filled with military men, then salute and start reading Forget Me Not.
FTC Full Disclosure - A copy of this book was sent to me by the publisher in hopes I would review it. However, receiving the complimentary copy did not influence my review.
Sky and Daisy, seeming to be complete opposites, are two very smart, snappy characters who invite you into their colorful world at first glance. He’s a bad boy Navy helicopter pilot, a love ‘em and leave ‘em type who refers to his latest fling as his “chick-du-jour.” His intention of unloading a stray cat at a local veterinary clinic becomes a life changing moment when the hot veterinarian, Daisy Schneider, walks into the room.
While Daisy can’t ignore the fact that Sky is a handsome man with a captivating personality and beguiling sense of humor, nonetheless, for reasons Daisy does not reveal to him, he is completely off limits. He does everything in his power to draw her to him, and succeeds at every turn to make certain the two end up together in the same room or at the same event. She should run. But time and again, she finds herself caught up in his game of “Conquer Daisy.” Soon, she learns she was wrong in both her shallow assessment of him and in his capabilities. Very wrong. But by then, Sky is sent off on a dangerous mission, something Daisy has feared all along.
You’ll have to read the book to find out what happens with these two, but I must say, Miss Ashby tells a story like an artist paints—first with broad strokes and then with fine attention to detail. The detail she injects into the story, from the intricate workings of a Navy helicopter ( so skillfully woven in, you feel like you’re inside the machine) to drug running cocaine production is so captivating, it makes you want to stay up all night to find out what happens next – which I did.
I found myself highlighting both the clever repartee between hero and heroine and the lovely prose so I can revisit long after I’ve turned the last page. I had to go back and read the part where they first met over again the scene was so much fun, not to mention a bit steamy at the same time. The only thing disappointing for me was the ending: It came too soon.
There are very few male authors who can tell a story from a woman's viewpoint, such as Richard Paul Evans and Nicholas Sparks. And there are even fewer female authors who can crawl inside a male character's head and realistically portray his thoughts. Nora Roberts is one. Move over, Nora, for here comes Heather Ashby! Having read the book, I feel I really know Sky, the Navy nickname of Brian Crawford, Naval Academy grad and helicopter pilot, winsome and attractive, with a little boy grin and a heart full of lust for life and the ladies.
Here is an inside look into what life can be like for our veterans who return from combat with PTSD, often hidden from themselves and their loved ones until revealed in dreams and changed personalities. And also an accurate description of the cooperation between the US Navy and Coast Guard as they work to fight against narco-terrorists to interdict drugs being smuggled into the US. Suspense and tension abound in this story that is so much more than a romance.
