Loved it. Marliss Melton is one of my favorite writers of Romantic Suspense, and TOO FAR GONE is another winner! It's got a courageous, sexy, caring hero, a brave, no-nonsense heroine, lots of gripping suspense, some hot romantic scenes, heart-breaking moments, and a conclusion that brought tears to my eyes.

Ellie Stuart is a young, divorced mother of 3 young boys, determined to turn her life around after ridding herself of her loser, cheating, no-good husband. She rents a small cottage in Virgin
My least favorite SEAL Team 12 book to date. The kidnapping plot didn't work well for me, and super-powerful secret organizations are a weak plot device in my opinion. Right down to the silly password phrase and griffin ring, the Centurions came off as more comic book than suspense thriller. The all-encompassing power of the group wasn't believable. I was sorry to see that the author intends to bring them back in future books.

I did care for the main characters, as well as Drake and Skylar. I'm

So my favorite of the series so far. I loved Sean, I loved Ellie and I loved them together. 4.85stars

Our SEAL of the week in this thrilling episode is Sean the good-time guy acting on that spark we saw in Don't Let Go with hard-luck Ellie. Independent Ellie's struggle raise her three sons in a better environment than either her past or theirs has seen has to fight to find who the mysterious people are that have kidnapped her sons. She hits all the right notes as a distraught & frazzled mothe

Too Far Gone is a sexy, emotionally-charged and downright enjoyable, suspenseful romance!”BCM

Is it too much to ask for a little bit of peace and quiet?
For Ellie Stuart who is a single mom, finding the time and energy to keep up with her busy life and still tend to her three young and energetic boys, the answer is a d
Ellie Stuart lives a crazy, hectic life. It’s not easy being a single mom raising three kids. You know how people are always warning you to avoid driving the back, county roads; well Ellie should have taken that advice. While she was driving one night along a back road, Ellie ends up being ambushed by a couple of men. The men pull Ellie from her car and take off with her three kids in the back sit.

Now Ellie needs her landlord’s help. Navy Seal Sean Harlan would like to start something with Elli
Got to be kidding me, there was little time for romance because of all the action and subplots. Ellie, well, I liked her well enough except that she sounded way too desperate for Sean. I understood her desperation and was distraught for her children, but - it felt too convinient. I didn't like the fact he was intimate with another woman while Ellie was fighting for her three sons that night. Hell, Sean couldn't even 'help flirting a bit' with another woman during the storyline before he finally ...more
For some reason I have found Sean's denial that he doesn't date women with kids to be funny. From the moment that Ellie showed up he was always around and playing with her kids. So in a way I was glad to see all the crap that came Ellie's way, as it forced both of them to admit they cared for each other more than they wanted to admit.

I do have to say that I do think less of Sean for little getaway for sexcapades. At that point he knew he had a thing for Ellie and his trip into playland could on
While this novel had a bit of romance in it, the main story was the kidnapping of a mother's three children. Ellie, a single mom, is on her way to drop off a paper at college when she is thrown out of her car and strangers drive off with her three boys. She turns to Sean, a Navy SEAL, who has feelings for her in order to find her children as the police and the FBI seem to be accusing her of killing her own children. Sean and Ellie search out Carl, the father of the boys who swears he has nothing ...more

I love this series. Marliss Melton creates intriguing stories that keep you interested and moving quickly through the pages.
The relationship between Ellie and Sean is hot and started building at the end of the last book. He has a soft spot for her three boys, but he doesn't want to settle down. He can't stop thinking about her, though. He does what he can to exercise her from his thoughts, but she remains. When her boys are kidnapped, he's right there for her. He cares about them almost as much
Book 6 in the Seal Team 12 series is Harlan and Ellie's story. A good story and nice romance that I I didn't expect to like. Harlan wasn't one of the team that I ached to read about especially after Solomon's story which left me kind of weary fo the series. But HArlan proved to much more likable then I expected and Ellie was a great strong character; a single mom struggling to raise 3 young sons and prove her independence at the same time. The suspense was there and I liked the introduction of t ...more
Too Far Gone held every element with equilibrum between suspense and romance. The writing is so wonderful and so visually stimulating that you'll see the story take on this realness as the characters and storyling come to life where you'll feel you are actually seeing it not reading it. This story is definitely an adrenaline pumping read where you will feel the emotions that the characters are feeling. Marliss definitely has this talent for drawing out her characters both leading and sub and her ...more
Yesssss! I did it! I finally ended this book. That was not bad, truthfully, but for some reason I found a bit boring and then I stopped reading some time ago. I finally decided to give it a chance again and I finished it!!!! Yeah!!!

The story about the kidnapping of three children seemed a bit strange to me. I couldn't find it so plausible and maybe this was the reason I cannot commit to this book.

Besides, the hero was not in my heart. Now I'm going to read the next one of this series and then pu
The sixth addition to the SEAL Team 12 series. A wonderful suspenseful continuation of a great series. Definitely a mother's worst nightmare. The story will keep you on the edge of your seat until the conclusion. Has some really heart wrenching moments especially regarding the children. The romance itself lagged a little but that was understandable in light of the situation. There were appearances of several characters from previous stories and introductions to others that we would love to see m ...more
I have loved the other books in this series. That said, I didn't enjoy this book at all. I couldn't get past Ellie having sex on her mind while her three young children were missing! If my children had been kidnapped and I had no idea who had them, I wouldn't be able to function let alone be initiating sex with a new partner! I found it unbelievable too that an undercover FBI agent would reveal his true identity to a new sex partner he barely knew because he was so overcome by desire. Pleeeeese! ...more
makes me wanna look for my own Navy SEAL. Lol!

This book was a lot more suspense than it was romance. In fact, the romance seemed like almost an afterthought to the main plot. However, I will saw that the book was a page-turner. But you can find a lot of page turners. I picked up this book because Marliss Melton usually does such an awesome job as a romance author. That's the only reason why I knocked this book a star.
I was on the edge of my seat the entire story. At first I had a hard time following as it jumped from scene to scene, but once I got to know the characters I was fine with it. Like everyone else, I'd love to read more about what happens next. The epilogue was like the season finale if a series that's then canceled - we will never know what happened next! Despite that, there is definite resolution so I'm satisfied.
Incredible. Too Far Gone was very well written. Marliss Melton leaves nothing out. Every small sub-plot is neatly tied up. This book was thrilling...with humor, friendship, affection, family loyalty and some really hot Navy SEALs. Couldn't put it down! Can't wait for the next book in the series.
Dawn ♥ romance
A really good romantic suspense with lots of fast paced action. I liked involving previous characters in this enjoyable series and secondary romances that lead to future books. Single mother Ellie's children are kidnapped and her landlord Navy SEAL Sean helps her track them down.
OMG! If you're a mother, you can feel the terror Ellie goes through when her kids get kidnapped right out of her hands. It truly makes you think how would you react. Loved her perseverance and determination to get them back with the help of Sean. Couldn't put it down.
Those who love Susanne Brockman will like Marliss Melton's SEALs. This one is a real page turner about every mother's worst nightmare. Her children are kidnapped and she is framed for it.

Very bood suspense action romance.
Some of Sean's thought process kinda bugged me. At times he came too close to not being truthful. For me that's kinda a downer.
Interesting secondary characters and a very hot Navy SEAL hero, a gripping plot and SEAL team heroics == Win.

Another terrific Navy SEAL adventure laced with Marliss Melton's unforgettable romance.
Liked the other books in this series better. But still a good read.

This was a good read. Just not as good as the others in the series.
