A decorated war hero and top-ranked Navy SEAL sniper, Connor McDaniel, spends more time in combat than most. Phrases like ‘good versus evil,’ ‘right or wrong,’ and ‘God and country’ guide his every decision. When on a training assignment in a foreign land, Connor makes one faulty step, triggering a political international firestorm. Though he stands by his decision, and has the support of his commander, ultimately the country he has distinguishably served has no choice, but to bench him—permanently.
Award winning super-star, Julia Holly, seemed to have it all. With several number one blockbuster films, a few first place beauty pageant ribbons and the coveted all-time best Scream Queen trophy on her shelf, she easily conquered Hollywood. The only complication in her otherwise perfect life, the onetime brief encounter, with the hot military man of her dreams, who hadn’t paid her even the smallest amount of attention. When a chance meeting puts Connor McDaniel back in her path, she gives no hesitation in making a second introduction.
While Connor’s sole focus rests on sidestepping the political landmines that threaten his career, an auburn haired angel appears out of nowhere, making him believe life can go on without the military. Yet, navigating the minefield of civilian life can be complicated. Does Connor dare believe in fairytales or will his heart and his dreams get caught in the crossfire?
Mission Happy is the third book in the A Texas Desires series, but can be read as a standalone. I have not read the previous books but I think I will go back and read them when I have the chance. I really enjoyed Mission Happy, but then again I usually have a soft spot for books with military heroes, something about picturing the guys in their uniforms *sigh* plus the whole hubby was in the military so maybe that’s it. Whatever the case may be Mission Happy is a sexy and hot read that will have you hooked and not wanting to put it down.
The chemistry between the characters, Conner and Julie, is off the charts hot. Both characters were extremely likeable and I felt that I could connect with them both through the book. I wanted them to be together, I felt that they were perfect for each other, that they made each other better and deserved to find their happily ever after. If you are looking for a really good military hero romance or hell even just a really good romance period, then Mission Happy is one you need to have on your TBR lists, I think you will really enjoy it as much as I did.
This book is the third in a series and I would recommend reading the first two before diving in here.
Our hero, Connor, has been forced out of the life in the military that he loved and is struggling to come to terms with that. Julia is a famous actress just looking to have someone truly see HER, not just her famous background. There's definitely a connection between them but I was left wanting something more-even with well written sex scenes, because a great romance needs more than that.
I liked the author’s writing style, I felt it was smooth and flowed very well but I felt like I'd read the story before. I think I was looking for a little bit more character development wise, too. They were fine, but I think could have been a little more fleshed out. This was a quick read for me, and I did enjoy the style of writing. I would read this author again.
