Have you ever taken a big spoonful of what you think to be yogurt and once it is in your mouth you discover you grabbed the sour cream. And no how much you normally love sour cream, you are a repulsed. You spit in ungraceful on to the floor and down your shirt in some sort of convolution. You could have grabbed a tub of Cool Whip and your body has the same reaction.

This is sadly what happened to me with Marine Ever After. I thought I was getting a Marine, One Night Stand, Opps I am Pregnant Inte

Lillianna and Paul were perfect together! I loved the fact that while Lillianna was a strong independent woman on the outside, but loved giving up control in the bedroom. I was also happy to see her make Paul work for a place in her life. She refused to accept a marriage that wasn't based on love.
For his part Paul was a stand up guy. He was hot, sexy and honorable. I was pulling for him all the way.
There were also some amazingly sentimental moments in Marine Ever After. I won't give spoilers, bu

I wasn't sure if I was going to like this one when I started. I didn't really care for Lilliana at the start, I hated how judgmental she was. I also didn't really see the attraction between her and Paul. However I was won over as they were forced to date long distance, Germany to Texas. I think the distance helped them out by forcing them to really get to know each other instead of relying on sex. I did like the ending, loved that Paul wore Lilliana down to get what he wanted.

This is the first book I read by Heather Long and I can tell you that I am already looking forward to reading more books from this author. I love Marine Ever After! I love Paul's and Lily's passion. Their chemistry is too strong to resist. This is a fun, heartwarming and feel-good read that I highly recommend!!!

Ms. Heather Long has done it again; she has written another keeper, Marine Ever After, which I could read over and over again. It’s about a bridesmaid and a groomsman who hit it off so well during their first encounter, they have a one night stand. However, this one night stand is not arranged by the esteemed matchmaker and owner of 1Night Stand, Madame Evangeline, who has helped many men and women in Long’s Always A Marine series find their perfect match and their own brand of ...more

It's no secret that I am a huge fan and supporter of Heather Long's Always a Marine series. There are so many reasons that I have fallen for Heather's Marines, but most of all it's the way that she writes their stories without glorifying their Military service and downplaying the effects of their service. She isn't afraid to touch on the "taboo" topics such as DV, sexual assault, PTSD, and various others.

Paul was this dashing dominant Marine from the beginning and I very much fell in love with him. Lily was such a strong heroine, and I definitely understood how she felt and I liked her. She knew what she wanted or so she thought and watching her fall for Paul was great. They are both strong characters and they butt heads, but watching them bend and fall in love was an amazingly entertaining experience.

This was one sexy story yet so sweet at the same time. This is probably one of my all-time favo

"Marine Ever After" is one of my favorite "Always a Marine" stories. It was beautifully written and the story line was different from the others in the series. I wasn't sure if lead characters Paul and Lily had chemistry in the beginning but after a page or two, these two definitely have the kind of pull necessary to make their being together believable. ^.^

Paul and Lily meet during Luke and Rebecca's wedding and their mutual attraction towards each other comes to a head when they decide to slee

This story was short and sweet. My Sister and I both read it, and she told me she enjoyed it because the characters were mature and handled the circumstances really well. I totally agree with her.
In this story a one night stand that began at a wedding reception, leads to a rather sweet affair mostly experienced via telephone conversations and skype due to the male lead being deployed in the Marines. Sorry if I spoiled the surprise- the two characters do end up together. I was pleased that there

Paul is a slick Latin lover but his night with Lillianna leaves him wanting more than a one night stand. As an Army brat Lillianna knows what the military lifestyle is and wants nothing to do with it. Paul needs to convince Lillianna that loving a Marine is not the same as being an Army brat. Some folks write military romance and gloss over the reality of loving someone who serves at the convenience of the government. It isn't easy. There are separations, odd hours, moving, anxiety over duty and ...more

Amazing! Amazing! Amazing! After one night of steamy passion, Lillianna walks away from her hot Marine Paul thinking that there one night would be all they would have. But fate intervenes brining Paul and Lillianna together again...sort of, Paul is deployed and has the daunting task of courting the woman that he fell in love after their one night. Being in the military I loved how Ms. Long captured how intense relationships between lovers become when their communication is limited due to time ...more

Paul’s dominance and confidence were utterly sexy. He and Lily were hot together. I liked her, but she was exasperating. Fought their relationship to the very end. Then … sweet capitulation. I’m glad she declared her love for him first – he more than proved he was worthy of it. They had a beautiful HEA.

I loved seeing Matt at the wedding. It was an awesome moment seeing how far he’s come in his recovery.

Now in audio:

I really enjoyed 'Marine Ever After' - I would give it 5 stars but I'm just not personally into baby stories. Again, the characters are wonderful, and the story is more of growth in a relationship, not instantly falling in love - which makes it more realistic.
Dec 09, 2013 Deborah rated it really liked it
What a wonderful little romance, short and sweet with plenty of heat. It is just the thing if you need something lighter but with enough oomph to make your heart go pitter-patter. I am going to have to go and check out Ms. Long's other books in the series. I do love a man in uniform...or out of it.
