Finally, a story about the mysterious Luke Cooper. We've heard his name, but haven't met him - he went into the Marines and then never came home... it's been a decade since he's seen his family and I know that I, as a reader, was going a little crazy wondering why. Now I know.
We're brutally thrust into a mystery from the start: masked men have trashed our heroine, Abby's apartment and accosted her, demanding to know where her three-years dead husband hid some item. She has no clue what they're talking about, but when they threaten her toddler, she knows she has to do something. They give her a short time to locate what they want, so she packs herself and her baby up and runs to the only person she trusts, but the last person she wants to see: Luke Cooper.
Abby's a great character: smart, loving, determined. She's a mama grizzly prepared to protect her cub any way she can. She has a rough background, parents dead, a cheating husband also dead, and a young child to raise. She and Luke were the best of friends until the one night shortly after her husband's death when they gave into their passions... and Luke left her without a word, but left her with something else. Abby ended up pregnant. She hasn't seen or talked to Luke since that night, but knows he will help her.
If you looked up "hero" in the dictionary, there would be a picture of Luke Cooper next to it. He's an incredible man, and a perfect match for Abby. Still, he'll sacrifice anything, even his own happiness and future, in order to keep her safe.
The danger following Abby slams smack into some bad guys who are after him, and as Luke, Abby and their son make their way across county, all the while trying to figure out what it is that the first set of bad guys want, there's peril at every turn. Just about the time I felt they could stop and take a breath, something else happened. No time to rest, no one to trust - everyone they turned to for help was also imperiled, and it began to look as though things were hopeless.
I flew through this book, desperate to find out how they'd make it out in one piece. The speed of the plot kept me breathless, and I didn't want to set this book down. There were a few little blips (including one at the end involving a decision with their son) that made me scratch my head - would a smart person have made that decision? - but then, I'm on the outside looking in with knowledge that they don't have. So, really, it didn't affect my enjoyment of the story.
The Cooper Justice series just keeps getting better. Like a good romantic suspense story? You'll be well served picking up One Tough Marine and every other book in the series that precedes it. Kudos to the author - she's just consistently good.

This is an intrigue and I haven't read a lot of this line. It is the third of the Cooper Justice series so I've missed the 1st two with stories about Luke's sister Hannah and brother Sam.
The romance is strong and I liked the hero and heroine. The family interactions were also great and made me want to read more of the series, including the older brother J.D. who stars in book 5.
There wasn't a great deal of mystery but there was lots of action and tension as Luke, Abby and Stevie flee from mysterious agents after something they believe Abby has and also find themselves followed by men seeking vengeance for the death of a drug lords son Luke killed while a marine in drug torn South America.
A big action packed finale that would have worked well in a movie and a sweet Happy Ever After. Not all the mystery was resolved so I must assume it will continue in the series.
Always return for another.
I found One Tough Marine to be a good story, that held my interest until the finish
Will always choose to read Paula Graves.
