    Only 78 pages but it felt interminable. I hated Liv. She starts out like a self centered, grudge holding shrew and didn't change till the very end. I couldn't believe in their HEA. Hamilton is in the airforce and so was Liv's dear old dad. They were childhood friends even though he is 9 years older.

He is now 37 and ready to move out of active service to a teaching position, but won't tell her until she confesses her love for him. So he's kinda an idiot too. Foolish in his pride. Idiots, the both of them. safety is so so (view spoiler)[they have both dated others. He has been celibate for months and only did the occasional ONS before this because he was too in love with her to have a relationship with another woman. If he was so in love then why didn't he drop the pride (hide spoiler)]

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Liv grew up in the military and decided she wanted nothing further to do with being separated from loved ones and constantly worrying about them. So she moves away. When her father dies, her dearest friend and the man she loves, who is also military, returns to tell her. But he’s also returned to finally claim the woman he loves, no matter how hard she fights it. He’s ready to spend his life with Liv and he’s ready to convince her that he, a military man, can actually make her happy. I really li Liv grew up in the military and decided she wanted nothing further to do with being separated from loved ones and constantly worrying about them. So she moves away. When her father dies, her dearest friend and the man she loves, who is also military, returns to tell her. But he’s also returned to finally claim the woman he loves, no matter how hard she fights it. He’s ready to spend his life with Liv and he’s ready to convince her that he, a military man, can actually make her happy. I really like this kind of set up because the angst is pretty much top notch. And in this case, there is plenty of it. Liv and Ham definitely have that whole push/pull thing going and it really keeps you intrigued with what’s going to happen with these characters. But some of my respect for the hero dwindled about the time he was talking about how he’d slept around plenty to get rid of his sexual edginess despite full-on knowing how much he loved the heroine. In his words, she was “the love of his life,” and “He’d given his body to other women, but never his heart.” I get it, and I don’t think he’s an asshole for this, mostly because he and Liv weren’t exactly a couple, but I kinda think that if he loved her that much and he knew he still had a shot (as evidenced by his decision to go after her during his 2 week leave) then he damn well should have kept it in his pants for her. He sure wasn’t thrilled at the idea that she’d already found a guy - so he probably wouldn’t have wanted her having sex, which is definitely a double standard. But then, he was deliberately staying away because he knew she didn’t want a military guy and he wasn’t giving up the military for her. And despite loving her that much, he decides to go for it with her because they were “both of an age to settle down” and she hadn’t yet been in a serious relationship, so he had to believe she loved him too. So IMHO, he should have stayed away unless he could give her what she wanted. Instead, I see him as selfish because he wanted her on his terms, which is why he didn’t lead with the fact that (view spoiler)[ he was giving up his position so he could teach at the academy, although the degree to which this was a sacrifice was still pretty questionable...it needed to be further explained. (hide spoiler)] - no, he wanted her to accept him in a “military” position first (and he hadn’t been willing to be celibate for her in the meantime). That just felt selfish. Just how I saw it. You may see it differently. The angst here though, definitely delivers. Which is definitely a positive.

    This was a nice quick read and part of the Men of Courage series- I really liked both main characters, Liv Avery and Hamilton Wulf; I enjoyed reading about their history and what the present means for both of them. You can tell both love each other but Ham has made choices that did not allow a romance for Liv and Liv has pined for Ham but dismissed him because like her father, he has chosen the military over her.

I enjoyed the way Lori Foster brings them together and since so much time has passed, now, both characters are more willing to speak and act on what they want; another great romance from Lori Foster! Jumping into Driven to Distraction next- a new series (Road to Love) from Foster!

    This literally got two stars solely because I loved Jack, the sole canine character in the book. If I was rating just Jack, five stars, but unfortunately this book also came with humans. I'm saving most of my ire for Hamilton Wulf, career military and conceited, who will "make" Liv, the heroine, conform to the life he's planned one way or another. Here's a hint, Lori Foster, when a woman feels she has to apologize for living her life in a fashion that makes HER happy, we have a problem.

I read a lot of romance and honestly, I thought these sorts of issues in things that would actually see publication were left behind about twenty years ago. Also, there was no closure with Jack. Disappointing.

    Rating for the length more than the story. Very, very short. Read it in less than 1 hour. Sweet, nice story but short.

    quick, easy read. I liked the compromise and not the my way or the highway attitude.

    I usually love Lori Foster's work but this one fell far short for me. The heroine is very clear on what she needs for her mental and emotional health but rather than tell her his plans to give her that, the hero spends the whole book attempting to manipulate her into rolling over for his wants - and then she freaking does which is incredibly irritating.

    I read this story in the anthology Hot In Here. I enjoyed it very much. The hero is an Air Force Lieutenant Colonel and the heroine is an Air Force Colonel’s daughter. Since she was raised Air Force Liv thinks she knows what life will be like married to Ham. She wants no part of that. She wants a home, a family, a dog – things she thinks she can’t get as an active duty officer’s wife. Liv knows the Air Force is Ham’s life and she loves him too much to ask him to quit, but she wants him to offer I read this story in the anthology Hot In Here. I enjoyed it very much.

She wants no part of that. She wants a home, a family, a dog – things she thinks she can’t get as an active duty officer’s wife. Liv knows the Air Force is Ham’s life and she loves him too much to ask him to quit, but she wants him to offer to quit for her. When Ham shows up as part of the official team to notify her of her father’s death he thinks he has found the perfect compromise. He will remain in the Air Force as an instructor so they can stay in one place. He will give up flying missions to avoid being deployed. Of course, this is not what Liv thinks she wants. Miscommunication ensues until the final Happily Ever After. With a romance novel, especially a Lori Foster romance novel, you know the hero and heroine will find their Happily Ever After, so the key is for the story’s path to be believable and an enjoyable trip for the reader. I did enjoy the trip. The relationship between Liv and Ham is believable, the dialogue is realistic, and the conclusion convincing. This was a fun read. The copyright is 2004, so it was written before I started grabbing each new Lori Foster book as it was released. I expected the story might be less polished and perhaps have a less interesting plotline than her newer works. I was mistaken. This is a very enjoyable story.

    Part of the box Men of Courage II As with the first Men of Courage I don't like the LF entry. There seems to be something wrong with the balance of power between the protagonists. I don't like the way Ham wants to 'win' her love. He just seems to want to manipulate her until she sees things his way. The so-called compromise (as can be learned during endless woolgathering) will only be given by him AFTER she does what he wants. That is not compromising.

    It was an okay story, I like her Men Who Walk the Edge of Honor/Love Undercover series better..... when I ordered it I did not realize it was a short....it was a bit irksome to realize I paid $5 for a story under 100 pages....I know it should not matter, it's the story....
