About Book Forever Blue by Suzanne Brockmann Pdf Free Download
Navy Seal Blue McCoy returns to his small hometown in South Carolina for his brother’s wedding and quickly finds himself in a heap of trouble. After a very public fight at the engagement party, his brother is killed and Blue is the prime suspect. Rookie cop Lucy Tait is the only one who believes in his innocence, but will the attraction she feels for him get in the way of clearing his name?
Carter “Blue” McCoy is the 2nd of Brockmann’s Navy Seals to have his story told in the Tall Dark and Dangerous series and I have to say I am loving these men. Feeling a little bit like dessert these well written romances are short, super addictive and each just different enough that the stories always feel fresh. With delicious alpha male heroes, fantastic dialogue and just the right amount of suspense, action and melodrama to keep you coming back for more (sometimes even before dinner) While each of these can be read as a stand alone as with all romantic series they seem to work best when read in order due to the continuing or evolving story arcs.
Blue McCoy has just returned to his hometown of South Carolina to attend his stepbrothers wedding. He hasn’t been back to Hatboro Creek since he graduated and joined the Navy and in all honesty doesn’t relish being back here now especially since his stepbrother Gerry is marrying his high school sweetheart, the fluffy, perfect Jenny Lee. It’s a little awkward to say the least. However awkwardness soon becomes the least of Blue’s problems as later that night at a pre-wedding party he and Gerry get into a heated argument and by morning his stepbrother is dead.
Of course Blue becomes the primary suspect due to their very public fight and because Gerry’s neck has been broken in such a way that only someone skilled in hand to hand combat could have done it. Soon witnesses are coming out of the woodwork and the whole towns convinced Blue’s guilty, everyone that is except for his old friend and rookie police officer Lucy Tait.
I really liked the heroine this time around, usually I find Brockmann’s females kind of bland and unmemorable but Lucy had spirit and personality. She’s had a crush on Blue since she was 15 and he rescued her from some bullies, never quite able to forget him she`s learned all she can about the SEALs program and is aware of how Blue lives his life and what it took him to get there, she also knows he’s not a killer.
As a rookie Lucy’s first big assignment comes when she’s made chief investigative officer to Blue’s case. And despite the hero worship she’s suffering and the palpable sexual tension between them Lucy is determined to play by the book to prove Blues innocence and find the real killer. But what will she do when she finds out Blue is not the hero she thought he was? And as for Blue well he’s never had a friend who was his lover before, who knew that was possible?
Unfortunately with this instalment there isn’t much interaction with the rest of Alpha Team but it’s still a great story, complete with several car chases and a police pat down that will make you blush. Once again Brockmann’s dialogue draws you in, making the whole falling in love within days theme plausible. The love scenes are soft yet still erotic (just without the dirty words and more imagination needed) Here we even get some underwater action, and just wait till this SEAL chokes!
This is a pleasant surprise.
I suppose there’s something to be said about second chances–just because one book by an author didn’t work out doesn’t mean that no books from the same author will ever work out. Even if the two books happen to be in the same series, or even the same two-book volume, with the same theme, and a specific set of characters.
Except that Forever Blue only had one roll-over character from Prince Joe, and the rest were just in the background..
Forever Blue, despite some small quibbles and eye-roll-worthy moments, was immensely more enjoyable than Prince Joe had been. No one is more surprised than I am about how much more I enjoyed reading the second book in Suzanne Brockmann’s Tall, Dark & Dangerous series. I was simply expecting a mediocre read, something to get by on, if not a bad one, so that I could finish my Reading Assignment Challenge properly.
I was expecting a lot of romance to overshadow the suspense parts–I was not wrong. I was expecting a so-so conflict to fulfill the suspense and crime thriller quota–I was not wrong. I was expecting another unbalanced story–I was not wrong.
I was expecting another frustrating, trope-filled romance where I’d end up throwing the book across the room again when I started getting irritated with the couple. This is where I was off-base, although there HAD BEEN one little instance where I DID get that itch to toss the book–but it came and went and I got over it.
I hadn’t expected to genuinely, really, really like it Forever Blue spite of everything I should have disliked it for. And maybe that’s why the enjoyment is so much higher.
To be honest, though, I’d probably lay at least half of the star rating on the heroine of the book, Lucy Tait. She is definitely my kind of heroine and she might be the biggest reason I really liked this book. Well, that and the clichéd romantic tropes were a bit toned down–I’m not sure if I even saw many of them.
Lucy’s a straight arrow who doesn’t beat around the bushes. She says what she wants to say and does what she wants to do, and doesn’t hide behind a coy exterior. She’s a little Miss Perfect with a side of cynicism, which would normally make me wary of her. But at the same time, she’s very confident of herself on other levels, being smart and resourceful enough to be a rookie cop with lots of potential if she chose to continue that line of career.
Her no-nonsense attitude is probably what makes me love her so much, anyway.
On the other hand, Blue McCoy was a great guy. But he didn’t really do much for me, to be honest. And he was a bit frustrating at times, but whaddya gonna do? He’s the standard alpha, broody male with commitment issues. There are no surprises there.
But Lucy? Lucy is just GOLD!
The story in Forever Blue, much like Prince Joe, was still a bit unbalanced. The romance was still heavy-handed and got sappy and a bit illogical at times. I feel like we spent a lot more time lazing around and developing a love story than we did investigating a murder–sometimes we didn’t ask the right questions, and sometimes we spent more time than not on less significant details.
But I’d be lying if I didn’t admit that I actually, very much loved the way the romance was developed. With Lucy and Blue having a vague childhood history, even if it only consisted of three short conversations during high school, I found the development from that point kind of sweet. Reuniting after so many years and having each of their images of the other dashed only to be rebuilt in a new light, from friendship to lovers was very well thought out.
I especially loved the late night conversations Blue and Lucy had with each other on their front porch, sharing details about their lives as friends and getting to know each other. If this book could have been a little bit longer, we’d be able to fulfill both the crime thriller aspect AND the lovely slow burn of a developing relationship.
But as it is, we’ll have to go without a more well-thought-out crime thriller in favor of a well-developed romance, I suppose.
Some Final Thoughts:
The ending was very abrupt and I would have liked something a bit more wrapped-up. I would have also liked to see more of Blue’s Alpha Squad in action, but I’m fine with their absence. The main culprit of the murder was quite predictable once the story got going, and at the same time, the details were quite vague.
The ending didn’t quite wrap up as well as I’d have liked. There were a lot of loose ends that needed explaining and that I’m still asking questions about. There were certain suspects who acted very strange throughout, but that we didn’t get an explanation for in the end as to why they were so adamant about keeping the investigation stone-walled.
And then one of the culprit’s identities came directly out of left-field and we don’t even really get a background on why these guys did what they did.
Again, there were a LOT of loose ends left over. If I didn’t like Lucy so much, I might have brought the rating down a half star or something (I thought about it). But my logic makes no kind of sense to anyone, sometimes not even me.
Forever Blue is a romance and love story, first and foremost, with the crime thriller and suspense being a sweet background distraction. I would have liked for the story to be a bit more balanced, but since I’ve kind of developed a girl crush on Lucy, I think I’ll make myself content with what I can get.
This is my favorite type of a romance: the hero and heroine have a past relationship. In this case, Lucy had a crush on Blue McCoy when she was 15 and he saved her from being beat up by 5 boys who were pissed she made the junior varsity baseball team. He was her hero then and now he is back in town for his step-brothers wedding to the girl Blue dated in high school. Lucy is now a rookie police officer for the Hatboro Creek PD. A good ole boy outfit that doesn’t take her seriously and go out of their way to make her look bad.
Blue’s brother ends up dead, with his neck broken and Blue is the main suspect. Gerry was into some bad stuff, but no one knows what. Lucy does all she can to help and protect him and comes to know it is more than an old crush, it is love. Blue also comes to realize that when a woman puts her life on the line it is more than friendship.
