Teresa has done it again. From the moment I read the first book in this series I knew I had found a very talented author that not only writes great military suspense but also compelling stories that just grip your heart and doesn’t let go until the final page.

The author chose to write this book in two parts within the same book. For the first part we get the background on Harold “Flash” Carney and Samantha Cross. We go back to Iraq to those moments before the mission that went wrong that has be

Soooo GOOD.

WOW I loved this book. It’s a perfect addition to the series and a wonderful stand alone if you haven’t read the previous book, but since the series is so good I highly recommend reading them all.

The first part of the book is nail-biting stressing while building the background for both characters (which is why this book could easily be a stand alone) and then when Flash and Sam lives crossed it’s both complicated and beautifully story told. Joy was a delight to read.

I know a lot of people have raved about how wonderful this story was, etc etc. Unfortunately I just can't jump on this bandwagon. The idea of two concurrent storylines happening just didn't work for me. The author's attempts to keep us in the loop with Marsha and the Captain and the whole sad story about their baby just fell flat for me. I was interested in Flash and Sam, and wanted to learn more about them and how they fell for each other. Instead, it felt like I got an insta-love half-story. I ...more

This is the third book in the SEAL TEAM heartbreakers series. Each story is better than the one before! Really! This story focuses on two of the members of the team. Flash is set up by the bad guys disguised as the good guys. He goes underground to stay alive. He works behind the scene to catch the bad guys. But, he is AWOL and NCIS is trying to bust him for that instead of helping him catch the criminals. And he still doesn't stop trying to do the right thing and catch the bad guys. He has move ...more

I didn't think it was possible, but I may love Breaking Away more than the first two books in the SEAL Team Heartbreakers series. Samantha Cross escapes her abusive husband after a particularly vicious beating, but he is determined to get her back; if he can't, he is willing to kill her. Flash is trying to evade arrest for going AWOL while working to take down the corrupt FBI agent who set him up to be murdered. At first the story works back and forth between Sam's struggles with her husband and ...more

So he goes on the run hoping his training is enough to keep him alive! And that is when he finds Sam.

Samantha Cross is desperate to get away from her abusive ex-husband but he is trying to get custody of their daughter to keep them in his life. Samantha is determined to protect her daughter no matter

OMG what an amazing book, this is my fav of the series. A 10 star for sure. I really liked James & Marsha and how they worked through their problems. And Sam & Flash, gotta love those 2, and little Joy. Sam, I just wanted to hug and sad that shit like that does go on. This author just keeps getting better. So looking forward to the next one.

Before I read this one I was not that big of a fan of Flash but man after it I think I want him to be my boyfriend. lol for those that love books that take you for a ride hop on this book and get ready to go.

YAY! Finally... It seems like it's been forever waiting for Flash's story and it was well worth the wait. This has action, the damsel in distress, action, romance, action, and some more romance. Awesome read

Compelling writing; 4,5 stars; Maybe a bit too long and in parts predictable. Didn't expect a wonderful side-story, which would be best if written as a novella, no, it definitely deserves a novella.

Breaking Away: Military Romantic Suspense: Seal Team Heartbreakers Book 3 is by Teresa Reasor. This book is written just a little differently than the rest. First, we have background stories for Flash and Samantha before we actually get up,
Flash finds himself in trouble. He thought he was working for the FBI in trying to stop the drug trade. After Cutter is almost killed, he isn’t sure anymore. He thinks he was set up as were others, now he has to find the proof while the drug traders, politici

Very good book. Loved the character of Flash and how complete he was. Sam was a very sweet and strong character as well, and her daughter, OMG! a real "sweet tart";). This book also introduced us a bit to the story behind Captain James Jackson, Marsha, and their son Alex, which was very nice too. Can't wait to dig into the 4th book of the series. Recommended!

Great book

This book is the third in the series and carries on the on going storyline from book one. It’s full of drama and intrigue and a family finding each other regardless of the obstacles in their path. Great book and series

Stories within stories

This book has "lots of moving parts" that made it harder for me to follow. It also has some really harsh, heavy subjects. The characters are wonderful and the ending is great. It is a good read.

I love how the author worked the whole story arc of this book from two different angles until Carney and Sam came together. Seeing the back story of each of them, and knowing why Carney disappeared and how, and what happened....well, it's not anything I had expected, but it was so much more! With Sam, her background, history and the things that brought her into Sam's orbit are intense. This is a dark book with regards to both sides, but ends on a lighter note. Sam really gets to know Carney as a ...more

What a beautifully crafted story, where different story lines are through the tale brought closer and closer together until they all bind together. Every new chapter sparked more interest to the story, "one more chapter" until wee hours of the morning when I finished the book.
The stories are heart-breaking, but victorious and alluring. I loved it, when reading in tears, there was suddenly such a funny line, I burst into laughing aloud.
The love stories are passionate, charming, and delicate.
What a ride!

Great finale to this particular scenario. Loved all the characters, even the bad guys were believable. This writer knows how to write a story. The way she was able to have several secondary stories going on in the background and still keep you focused on the main story was fascinating. I loved the way she tied all three stories together. She kept you up with what was going on in the other characters' lives in the two previous ones and then finalized all their stories in this one; she

Holy hotness

This was yes another page turner in this series. Fell in love with all the Seals from book 1 and the adding of their significant others are awesome bonuses. Joy and Sam are perfect fits for flash. I can't say it enough when you get wrapped into a world like this it's sad to hit the last page. However I am excited for the next book as well. Great job on this one again each book is full of fun, hotness and excitement. Never looses its spark pardon the pun. Will recommend it to everyone

It was an awesome book again from Mrs Reasor, who is a formidable storyteller and writer.
Her stories make me cry, laugh, sweat, love and hate, some situations and characters... it's a jungle of feelings, each time I start reading one of the adventure of this navy SEALs team.
The plot is always great, and sub plots passionnant as well as the different characters .
What a pleasure.
Now I'm going to read the next one

Just finished reading all 3 of the SEAL TEAM Heartbreakers.. Loved all of them but thought the last one was the best out of the bunch. I hope to hear more on this series from Ms. Reasor. Stories for Bowie and Doc!! Yes please...

DNF. Okay so the background story they had going on was good. The problem is the couple doesn't interact at all, for any reason until almost halfway through the book. And it is a long book.

After they meet the romance was just not that interesting. So at just after 70% I called it quits.

Another good story and a great addition to this series. My only complaint is that it had been so long in between books that I forgot who the other characters were and what had happened.
