I’ve been reading Rhonda Nelson’s Men Out of Uniform series since its inception and I always find myself smiling during them. Of course now I know how they will always turn out but getting there is half the fun and she always manages to make the journey fun. The Closer is no different and it’s one of those books where I love the heroine and much as I love the hero. They are both pretty fantastic
A very entertaining read and one where the characters are as well developed as any book I have recently read. A man with an unhappy family past and a woman who is completely willing to buck any social system in order to be who she is. She plus-sized and beautiful but dealing with a society who chooses to believe that Size 2 in normal. He's a former Army Ranger and she's an expert jeweler/creator of beautiful things. Together they are prepared to set the fashion world on its ear, but the story un ...more
This series has been really good and this one was no exception. The heroine was awesome, a designer, mechanic, racer, really different. The hero had to leave the military after donating his kidney to a half brother he never knew and who was the cause of his family's break-up. Both of them are thrown together, escorting a diamond encrusted bra and sparks fly. The heroine's dad designed it, the hero is the security guy. I loved how the heroine cut through the BS, setting the hero straight about hi ...more

This one is going on my keep shelf, (most romances don't) I love the female, being curvy and real, having out of the box interests. The Hero also rings real with me and is humorous enough to keep it interesting even if the plot is a little strange, I was able to suspend my disbelief, which is all i want from a steamy romance novel.

Miniseries: Men Out of Uniform
I liked a lot of things about this book: What a strong sassy heroine. She brought out the best in our hero. Making him realize his self-worth while at the same time he was a great boost to her, showing her she didn't always have to be strong alone.
I like the dual view of the grass is not always greener... By showing that Griff's dad left but didn't make the perfect life the second time around either.
And I loved the spin on the storyline with The Owl and how that wrapped. I was genuinely surpri

The Closer is the 14th book of the Men Out of Uniform series by Rhonda Nelson, but my first. I never felt left out or like I was missing out on anything never having read any of the earlier stories. I thoroughly enjoyed this fun, fast paced story.

Griff Wicklow may not be able to serve his country anymore, but he can still protect and serve as a security agent for Ranger Security, his new civilian job. It's in his blood to protect and take care of others. After his dad abandoned them, he took car
It looks like this is book 3 in a series from Rhonda Nelson, and I hate when this happens.....I love a book so much that I have to go and get the rest of the series! This is a great romance with an interesting lead couple. They are both intriguing, interesting, quirky fully dimensional characters. This was a couple I could really connect to and I was totally invested in their happily ever after. Ms. Nelson brings the funny, the passion and the reality. I commend her on creating a female lead tha ...more

In every book I read the characters are most important. There can be a great story, but if I don't care about the people in the story, I'll stop paying attention.

I really liked Griff and Jess. I could tell the author was thorough in creating their backgrounds and personalities. I loved watching the two characters get to know one another on the drive to New York and although there was serious attraction between the two, they didn't take it further until they truly knew each other.

Having Griff an
