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
Actual Rating: 3.5 Stars

This is a pleasant surprise.

I suppose there’s something to be said about second chances--just because one book by an author didn't work out doesn’t mean that no books from the same author will ever work out. Even if the two books happen to be in the same series, or even the same two-book volume, with the same theme, and a specific set of characters.

Except that Forever Blue only had one roll-over character from Prince Joe, and the rest were just in the background..

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
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.

"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.

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
Krista (I remember you, Min) (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

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. :(
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.

One of the earlier Brockmanns. Some of the romantic suspense aspects were a little far fetched (she has definitely improved and expanded this part of her writing in her fantastic Troubleshooters series) but the development of the romantic relationship was nicely done. An enjoyable read.

3.5 stars.

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

Este libro me ha encantado.
Es una lectura ligera, con un lenguaje sencillo y con una trama algo soncilla pero muy adictiva.
He amado la forma en la que me atrapó el libro y me lo he terminado de un tirón.
En esta segunda entrega de la saga, podemos seguir la historia de Blue y de Lucy, pero también podemos descubrir un poco mas sobre los demás integrantes de este maravilloso grupos de SEALs, podemos saber como continúa la historia de Cat y verónica (protagonistas del primer libro) y logran introd

Es la segunda parte de una serie sobre hombres altos, oscuros y peligrosos, un equipo de SEALS, y me ha encantado. Lucy y Blue son dos personajes increíbles que no se amilanan ante los desafíos, que no se dan por vencidos cuando las cosas se ponen feas, que no se rinden ante lo que parece imposible.

Por otro lado tiene algunas cosas que chirrían un poco en la trama. Nadie más del pueblo cree a Blue? Nadie quiere ayudarle? No tiene ningún amigo o conocido? En el tiempo de instituto, salía con la c

Hm, I feel a bit at a disadvantage here, having read Troubleshooters first. But I really struggled to connect to either charater in this book. And when I don't feel that connection to either one, it's tough going to finish. It's Brockmann though so I enjoyed aspects enough to round it up to three stars.

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

It was okay. Reasonable characters. Reasonable storyline. But I didn’t feel the love and spent the latter part of the book waiting for the town and townspeople to get their comeuppance or at least a Hallelujah! moment.

It’s an interesting enough series but Book 2 didn’t liv
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

"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
This is the most wonderful book of the series so far. She is the small town girl and he is the girls crush. They drift apart them come back together in a moment of danger. It has action and love. It was a really good read.
