Review: Wait until Dark - ML Buchman


Name: Big John Wallace
Rank: Staff Sergeant, Chief Mechanic and Gunner
Mission: To serve and protect his crew and country.

Name: Connie Davis
Rank: Sergeant, Flight Engineer, Mechanical Wizard
Mission: To be the best...and survive.

Two Crack Mechanics, One Impossible Mission

Being in The Night Stalkers is Connie Davis's way of facing her demons head-on, but mountain-strong John Wallace is a threat on all fronts. Their passion is explosive, but their conflicts are insurmountable. When duty calls them to a mission no one else could survive, they'll fly into the night together—ready or not.

My thoughts:
This is book 3, but it does work well as a stand alone.

Both were in the previous book, but this is their time. Connie is the dedicated mechanic, the soldier who forms no attachment. She feels weird and that she does not belong. I kind of felt that I I understood where she was coming from. Yes she has issues, but that is who she is. While Big John is nice, fits in and is just a good guy. A perfect fit? Well not exactly and that is what makes it good. They first fight their attraction and then they have lots of other things to deal with. They grow.

Is there lots of military action then? Yes and no. Military yes, action, mostly at the end. That part I liked the least. Sure it was suspenseful but by then I just wanted to know everything would be ok between these too. And I rather watch and read the truly suspenseful bits in books (yes I like movies ;)

Conclusion:
Suspense, romance, a bit of nice family life makes it into a good book.

My mom's uncle used to be a mechanic. He had permanently dirty fingers and fingernails. Romantic like hell. Have a horrible Monday.
