1. $7.99 for 190 pages? C'mon. (And that's the Kindle price...I'm still burned up over that)
2. I felt the characters were puppets serving a greater message and every scene was consciously contrived to forward that message. They didn't feel real to me at all, unlike her prior work. If she wants to write a message book, do a better job, make me care. Flesh out the characters more...take the time to make me care. Don't smack me in the face with it every 5 minutes. The heroine got very boring, and now that I think about it, so did the hero. Meah.
3. It felt rushed, this is more novella.
I'm actually surprised at all the high stars...I think maybe it's because it's like seeing your Aunt Gladys who used to play cards with you when you were a kid...she can't play cards anymore, but you're happy to see her because of all the good times in the past.
I don't get much time to curl up with a book anymore, so when I do, it's a real treat. I couldn't wait to go on vacation and have some time to myself, in a chair, by the water, and a good book. The story was phoned in, so not a surprise the author is self publishing. The story was okay, a real summer beach read, but when an author inserts their political views into the book, I'm done.
I don't care what your views are, it doesn't matter. I bought the book to escape for a few hours, and have some fun, it's fiction. If and author thinks I am so mindless, that they need to tell me how I should think and vote, I'm done.
I have left other activist writers for the same reason, and will continue to do so, whether I agree with you, or not. If you stick your politics in your books, I'm moving on.
When I saw 'SEAL Camp' and realized it was a new addition to her early STT series I was intrigued enough to take a chance.
I did enjoy catching up with the team and their spouses!
I rated this book 3 stars for two reasons. First, I felt Ashley was way too passive and, as a woman who preaches equality and strength, I would think Ms Brockmann would dislike this trait in a woman. Readers are supposed to see Ashley's growth, her learning to overcome both physical and emotional obstacles while attending SEAL camp, but I did not really feel this character ever had any backbone. Second, I was turned off by Jim's incessant crying. Strong men, even Navy SEALs are allowed to cry, but once he realized his feelings for Ashley he was more like a leaky faucet! And the mention of his reading so many books on women's issues and intersectional feminism--just too over-the-top!
The author's gay rights and liberal agenda were still front and center and, even though I also support most of this agenda, I tire of being hit over the head with it in all of her books.
Not much new to see here from Suzanne Brockmann. If you love everything she writes and don't mind your fiction heavily laced with social and political issues, then buy this book.
Post series re-read edit:
I find the people complaining about Ashley's attitude (like as if it is something new to SB books) quite surprising. Ashley has a lot in common with her friend Colleen (Taylor's Temptation) and that book was written almost 20 years ago. People who have read the previous TDD books should know what they are like. And insta-love kinda permeates the series too. These guys make life and death decisions on a regular basis, IMO, insta-love is sooo them. As for politics - come on, isn't the US of A famous for freedom of speech? If an Aussie like me is not put off when I have absolutely no stake in your elections, I reckon American readers can cut her some slack for her personal opinions.

The main hero and heroine were believable and, worryingly, so were the not so nice characters.
As usual after reading a Suzanne Brockmann book I feel the need to reread the entire back catalogue of her work (shame I'd have to take a sabbatical from work to have the time to do that) but this is certainly one to add to the reread list.
