Summary

Professional goalkeeper Patrick Harrington comes home to the US from England to attend the funeral of his best friend, Navy SEAL Ryan Rosen. Ryan's fiance is the girl who got away, the one he's been in love with ever since he set eyes on her in first grade.

Stephanie Carter's world turns on its axis when Ryan is removed from her life, but not from her heart. Ryan's best friend, Patrick, becomes her path to healing the trident-shaped hole left behind.

Compassion leads to passion as they find the possibility of a life together neither one planned or ever dreamed could exist. But Patrick must follow the calling his buddy Ryan had started. He knows his destiny is on Ryan’s SEAL team. 

As he goes through BUD/S, Stephanie wonders if her heart would survive a second loss. 

Patrick begins his first deployment to Central Africa, to extract or immobilize a powerful warlord who is terrorizing and spreading his brand of hate. With the outbreak of Ebola, the stakes are suddenly higher. But Patrick will soon learn how interconnected the whole world is. He comes face to face with pure evil and those who want retribution. In the dramatic conclusion, he learns the value of his SEAL brotherhood, and who he’s fighting for.

Enjoyed the Audio Version

*****UPDATE 2/23/22*****
I enjoyed the audiobook. I thought the narrator did a good job. I still felt like there were some holes in the story, so my review from years ago didn't change. I think the reaction to Stephanie's news that was missing from the story was a major hole for me. Especially considering Patrick and Stephanie's conversation before he deployed.

There was an epilogue of sorts, but with the exception of meeting up with his friend, it didn't add much to the book.


*****October 2018*****
I have to say this book moved at such a fast pace, it raced through the characters lives at a ridiculous pace.

I got a better sense of Patrick's character as it seemed that a bit more time was spent on him. Not as much time was spent on Stephanie's character. The connection Patrick and Stephanie had made me wonder if she would have gone through with marrying Ryan.

It was hard for me to believe she really loved Ryan. Neither of them seemed to spend much time grieving for him.

I also thought it was strange that NO ONE had any objections to Patrick and Stephanie being together. No one.

Another thing that happened, (especially considering the conversation they had before he deployed), was there was no announcement of Stephanie's news and therefore, no reaction when he returned from deployment. There was a pretty significant change that was basically ignored.

I have been following SEAL Team 3 for ages. The books always grab your attention, your emotions, and take you to different places. I have never read one that seemed to gloss over so much of life as this one did.

I can even work with the footballer becoming a SEAL. I liked the camaraderie and brotherhood Patrick shared with the other SEAL's. But really, they way their lives played out in this book was over the top. I don't want to say anything more because I will have to start doing Spoiler Alerts.

I don't know whether to give this 2 stars or 3. I will split the difference and go with 2.5.

I voluntarily read and reviewed a copy of this book received from the author.

good story except for...

I was terribly disappointed when the BIG announcement wasn't made in the ending and Patrick's reaction wasn't written. What an anti-climax that was. It was like a rush to the finish...like Sharon was tired of writing or something.
