Eh, it's OK

Navy Seal, Gabe Renault, wouldn't let anyone stand in the way of his success in the military, including his wife and step daughter. Determined to let nothing disturb his concentration and his career he distances himself both emotionally and physically from the both of them. Then one operation goes bad and suddenly he is held hostage with nothing but time on his hands and all he can think about is getting back and making amends.

The world thinks Gabe is dead and the news is met with both relief and shock by his wife, Helen. She can finally get on with her life and stop loving a man who does all he can to put up walls between them. But a shocker comes just as she is getting used to her new life, Gabe is alive and on his way home to her.

The past 3 years are a blur, Gabe can't remember his wife, stepdaughter or the mission that went wrong and he feels like someone is determined to keep it that way.

After so many rave reviews about this book, I have to say... I don't get it. It's not a bad book, by any means; it's just not the greatest, either. I don't know if I was in a mood or what but I had been reading this book for what seemed like forever, when actually it was a little over a week, simply because it seemed to drag on and on. I could not get into it, therefore I found myself setting it down, a lot. By page 200 and something I still felt like nothing really happened and we were covering the same ground. The back and forth between the hero and heroine wore a little thin and I felt I never got to like either one of them.

I am told by others who weren't that crazy about this one that the series gets better, so maybe I will give it another shot with book two. I am interested in some of the side characters, particularly the one featured in the next book, so I am hoping that will add to the enjoyment. But for right now I am going to take a break and read something else.
