Blue McCoy was once the hero of Lucy Tait’s teenaged dreams—quiet, dark and dangerous. After high school he left Hatboro Creek, South Carolina, to join the military. Years later, now a Navy SEAL, Blue was a man who embodied all of Lucy’s fantasies.

Now Blue is back in town, and Lucy is not the person he remembered. She’s a no-nonsense police officer—and a woman Blue can’t t

Opening Line: "Lieutenant Blue McCoy was the point man, leading the six other men of SEAL Team Ten's Alpha Squad across the marshlike ground."

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
I deserve a medal for finishing this book. It pushed practically all of my rage buttons.

Let's start with the heroine. Lucy is an insult to all women who work hard to succeed in traditionally male-dominated careers. It's as if Suzanne Brockmann designed Lucy to prove that women are too weak, foolish, and emotional to be effective cops. Lucy makes one stupid decision after another, consistently defying protocol and common sense. Every decision she makes throughout the whole book is emotionally-dri
I enjoyed reading this one. It's not a mind-chilling thriller/suspense, but it keeps moving anyway.

But the real theme is the romance. It develops beautifully in this story. It's impeded by her job and their individual belief that the other will think their relationship a mistake in the cold light of day, and then by their unwillingness to actually say " I love you", for a number of different, but realistic, reasons. It's so easy to empathize with the whole situation, even if most of us aren't l

Good. Not phenomenal like I'm used to from Suzanne Brockmann, but still a sweet romance with a bit of suspense thrown in. Both Blue and Lucy were likeable, normal people with no weird hangups. Unrequited love and all that...can't go wrong! One thing I love about SB's heroes is that while they are all alpha to the max, they still seem as if they can function in normal society. They wouldn't be scary to come across at a gas station or something, they'd just be something to stare at and wonder.
I thought this book was absolutely wonderful! A good, strong hero -- a Navy SEAL, Blue McCoy -- and a good, strong heroine -- Lucy Tait, a rookie cop -- meet again after many years. When Blue is accused of murdering his stepbrother, Lucy is the only person who believes he is innocent of the crime. As they work together to discover the truth, the attraction between them grows.

While I LOVE Blue and I really liked Lucy Tait, I just couldn't get over how melodramatic this book is. OK, it was published in 1996, but it read a little like a half-baked movie.

Blue comes home to small-town North Carolina to attend the wedding of his step-brother and his high school sweetheart. To everyone's surprise and awe, Blue is the Best Man. Just before he came home, Blue was on a rescue mission that reminded him about the day he "rescued" little Lucy Tait, the Yankee girl who'd
"Für immer - Blue" ist der zweite Band der Reihe "Operation Heartbreaker" verfasst von Suzanne Brockmann. Dieser Band hat mich nicht so sehr einnehmen können, wie die Thematik des ersten Bandes. Irgendwie war diese noch fesselnder, atemberaubender und romantischer. Die Operation Heartbreaker Reihe hat äußerst ansprechende Cover, was mit Sicherheit an den überaus attraktiven Models liegt. Die Farbe wurde passend zum männlichen Protagonistin ausgewählt: "Blue" - verschiedene Blautöne.

Navy Seal So
Huh, amikor a főhős hagyta a nőt, akivel randija volt, több mint 15 percen keresztül várakozni a teraszon és nyugodtan táncikálni kezdett egy másikkal, a tetszési indexe nagyon gyorsan zuhanni kezdett. A hősnő szakmai profizmusa is igen csak megkérdőjeleződött, amikor ránézésre eldöntötte, hogy a főhős nem gyilkos. Persze hiszen a főhős dögösen néz ki és a csaj régóta bele volt zúgva, így aztán nem lehet gyilkos ugye. :(
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 t ...more
Krista (One Love) (Critical)
So, the book was simple and pretty short, kind of a surface book, but I liked it a lot.

The characters were likable and had great chemistry. Lucy was a pretty typical heroine, snarky and proud and stubborn and bad-tempered. Blue was pretty original. I liked that he didn't talk much to anyone except Lucy. That was adorable. I really liked hearing about the relationships between Blue and the other Navy SEALS, and wish they all could have played a bigger role. The prologue seemed completely irrelev
This one, I actually downgraded from 4 to 3 stars after my latest read. I was not caught in the same maelstrom of feelings than when I first read it and it even felt flat several times.
Usually I do not like it too much when one character has been in love with the other forever and then suddenly the other got an eye opening and oups magically returns the feelings. Here, at least the eye opening was progressive, but he knew about her feelings for him before. And it did not feel that right that he

Forever Blue: 4.85:
A difficult-to-put-down, entertaining, really enjoyable re-read. It was impossible not to be thrilled with Brockmann's skill when it came to creating memorable characters, writing witty and endearing dialogue, and telling a thoroughly romantic, somewhat suspenseful story while inserting a bit of action and a lot of detail about those w
This wasn't a typical SEALs story not any action on the SEALs side. Blue McCoy is a tortured soul who goes home for a little self mutilation. It seems he is the best man for his step brother who just happens to be marrying Blue's high school sweetheart. Yeah that's messed up but it not that far fetched. Of course, this situation is a powder keg waiting to blow. Lucy, who has had a major case of hero worship and a crush on Blue since she was fifteen has finally gotten his attention. Now that he' ...more

I liked Blue McCoy. I liked Lucy. I didn't like Lucy always feeling second best to Jenny. I wanted to slap her self confidence into her. But, I liked them together. The plot was OK. It was a shorter book, so it could have been flushed out a bit better, but overall it was well done. I would think that Jenny Lee would have been grieving more and longer for her fiance though O.o
Während in Band 1 die Geschichte von Joe Catalanotto erzählt wurde, geht es im zweiten Band um Carter "Blue" McCoy. Blue ist zu Besuch in der Kleinstadt Hatboro Creek wo er bei seinem Stiefvater und Stiefbruder Gerry aufwuchs nachdem seine Mutter gestorben war. Er ist dort, weil sein Bruder Gerry seine Jugendliebe Jenny Lee Beaumont heiratet. Doch Blue ist in der Stadt nicht wirklich willkommen, nur eine freut sich ihn wiederzusehen: Lucy Tait, die schon in der Highschool verliebt in ihn war. Lu ...more

Who is Joe, when you can have Blue? Well, I liked Joe, but I have to admit Blue was more interesting to me even with the sandals on and the story didn't feel that anticliamtic as the first one.

When I read the first pages I thought I wouldn't like it, cos Blue and Lucy were getting it on and I'm really glad that it didn't come to that, cos I'm usually not very fond of books when the two main characters are get it on right from the start, because I want the suspense and the tension. And yes, I wa
Navy SEAL Blue McCoy returns home to attend his stepbrother's wedding...he's marrying Blue's high school sweetheart. Blue meets Lucy Tait soon after he arrives and, unbeknownst to him, she's had a crush on him since she was 15. She agrees to attend the wedding with him, which signals the start of something new for both of them. Blue gets embroiled in trouble and relies on policewoman Lucy to help him out of a very tough situation.

You find yourself liking Lucy from the very start and root for her

"Für immer - Blue" ist der zweite Band der "Operation Heartbreaker"-Reihe. Nachdem ich vom ersten Band eher mäßig begeistert war, wollte ich die Reihe noch nicht aufgeben und dem zweiten Band eine Chance geben. Zum Glück habe ich dieses Buch gelesen, denn die Reihe wird tatsächlich besser.

Suzanne Brockmann bleibt sich ihrem Stil treu, denn die Geschichte wird nach dem gleichen Schema erzählt: Mann und Frau treffen sich, Mann arbeitet natürlich wieder fürs Militär und die Liebe entfacht ziemlich
Forever Blue is the story of Alpha Team Ten SEAL Carter "Blue" McCoy--a fitting second story in the series for the team's second in command. Most of the novel takes place back in Blue's hometown in South Carolina while he is on leave, so we hear more about the other team members' through their recounted past exploits than we actually see them in the novel. When first we saw Blue in Prince Joe, he was bemoaning the fact that his high school sweetheart was going to marry his stepbrother Gerry. As ...more

Police officer Lucy Tait tries to ignore the attraction she has always felt for Navy Lieutenant Blue McCoy when he's suspected of murdering his step-brother. It soon becomes obvious that someone is determined to see Blue hang for the crime, no matter what it might take. Blue is a man who learned early to keep his own counsel. Not even his SEAL team members know everything about him, except for Joe Cat (Prince Joe). Lucy is the first woman who doesn't seem to want something from him.

I really don'
Este me gustó un poco mas que el de Joe. Blue se reencuentra con Lucy y él la ve de otra manera. Me disgustó un poco la contradicción de carater de Lucy: Super-mujer-lo-puedo-todo con el de la chica de baja autoestima que hasta el final cree que él esta enamorado de otra, a pesar de que se lo juró y contra juró. Este libro fue un toque mas SEAL: mas allá de los musculos, Blue pudo demostrar que tiene cerebro, y eso me gusta mas que un buen físico.
I read this one as part of a two-fer...I didn't realize when I checked out this Brockman novel that it was Tall Dark and Dangerous 1 AND 2. So, I got to read about Joe Cat and Blue back to back. This one had a lot of similarities to the first one...except Blue needed Lucy's help a lot more than Joe needed Veronica's. Blue was in a more extreme situation with the plot against him. Lucy's loyalty was really amazing...she basically took on the whole town to defend her man (who wasn't even her man y ...more
My favorite book so far in this series. I just adore Blue! I loved their burgeoning romance--and I liked how they knew each other at least a little in the past. This is my third book in the city, and I really like them despite the insta love which I usually dislike but Don't mind at all in these books. I do hate that HEA so far means marriage in all these books--surely they could just say their i love you's and shack up right?
Book #2 - Forever Blue

The more I read the more I am falling in love with these men!

Big Navy Seal back in his hometown accused of murder. The only one who believes in his innocence is a girl that has had a crush on him her entire life, pretty much. There are great chemistry between the two characters and just plain adorable. (can a Seal be adorable???)

Even though the rest of the Alpha Squad isn’t involved, it is still a wonderful read.

Suzanne Brockmann is a magnificent story teller. Her characte

Navy SEAL "Blue" McCoy travels to his hometown for his brother's wedding. Instead, he attends his brother's funeral. Evidence points to "Blue" as the murderer. Rookie Deputy Lucy Tait attempts to find evidence to prove "Blue" innocent. Lucy admired "Blue" when he was in high school and she finds herself falling in love with him as she investigates this case. Good story.
I loved the story of the Yankee girl finally getting her Southern man. And, as a so-called Yankee, I gotta say, us girls from the North just know how to do things better.
