About the Author

Ellie Stuart is a single mother of three boys and Sean Harlan is her Navy Seal landlord. Ellie and her boys were abandoned by her ex-husband and she is raising them on her own. One night, she is ambushed and the boys are kidnapped. Off course, Sean, who has grown to love her boys (and lusts after Ellie) steps into to help find the boys. Their search takes them on an action packed journey exposing corruption and making you wonder what will happen next. I could not turn the pages fast enough.
Melton also brings back characters from the previous books. Fans of the series will not be disappointed with this one. Those new to the series will want to start from the beginning. "Too Far Gone" is a well written and fast based book that will leave the reader hungering for more. The writer finds that perfect balance of romance and suspense. The only bad thing about this novel is that it ended. Can't wait for the next one!
Sean is a Navy Seal who is renting out his house to Ellie and her three boys. Ellie has had a very hard life and had a horrible first marriage. Sean takes care of Ellie and her boys and he is like a surrogate father to her boys when he is around. He is attracted to Ellie but thinks he could never be with just one woman (in fact he goes off and has sex with another woman to stop thinking about Ellie when her boys are kidnapped.) Ellie is a mixture of tough and vulnerable and will do anything to get her boys back.
The story was well written if not terribly unique. I didn't really like the second sex scene between Sean and Ellie when her boys were missing since I just didn't buy her being in the right frame of mind for sex. The first time was more believable as a swept away by the many emotions she was dealing with so I was okay with it but I just didn't think the second one played as well.
I also struggled with Sean being so involved in Ellie and her boy's lives, risking his life to track them down but not realizing how he felt about her. There was a secondary love story that had a bitter sweet ending and I imagine we will hear more from those two characters.
The chemistry between Sean and Ellie was very good. And I loved the banter between them, when they did banter. Sean is a likable hero, if only he wasn't a womanizer. On the other hand, here he is, in most of the book being sensitive and protective of Ellie, and risking his life to find her kids, that the reader can't help but like him.
Ellie is also a good heroine, she is strong and vulnerable, and she doesn't do foolish stuff just to prove that she is independent. I loved how she mostly followed all of Sean's instructions when they were searching for her kids.
Although the storyline isn't very original, it has the reader always interested. Also, there is a secondary love story between the villain's daughter, and an undercover FBI agent (Drake) sent to investigate her father. Now that story was wonderful, and it ended on a bitter/sweet note. I just hope that the author writes a book for those two.
Sean was with another woman, when Ellie's kids got kidnapped. So when the relationship between Ellie and Sean started after the kidnapping, I couldn't shake the feeling as if he had cheated on her, although technically he hadn't. Plus there is the icky factor of how close the period of time was between him being with one of his girlfriends, and him being with Ellie.
I also didn't like that h/h got intimate while Ellie's boys were missing. Now I can understand the first time, it just fit with the plot. But the second time was just gratuitous, and unnecessary - instead they should have just cuddled.Read more ›
Sean has been watching Ellie since he met her but knows that he's not the kind of guy for a single mother no matter how great he thinks her boys are. But when her sons are forcibly kidnapped from her, Sean is there to help her fight the mysterious organization behind the kidnapping. Circumstances allow the passion between Sean and Ellie to explode but can they find a way to make it last forever and become a family?
Too Far Gone goes from zero to 60 in about 3 chapters and never slows down after that! Marliss Melton has it all! Passion, action and emotional intensity are all seamlessly woven together in a story that literally kept me up all night unable to stop reading. I cannot recommend it highly enough!
