Too Far Gone is part of a series about Navy SEALs, and the hero of this book, Sean Harlan, is portrayed just as one might imagine a SEAL - muscular, a ladies' man, good at slinking about in the dark and sorting out problems. Sean finds himself involved in the problems of his tenant, Ellie Stuart, after her three children are kidnapped. Sean has been found Ellie attractive for some time but thinks there's no point in getting involved with a single mother. When Ellie needs his help to try to search for the kids, though, he is eager to assist.

Sean and Ellie follow up on the slim leads they can find in order to locate the children. What Sean and Ellie don't initially know is that a shadowy group known as The Centurions is involved, a group with tentacles in many different layers of government and law enforcement that can fabricate evidence to implicate Sean. Can Sean and Ellie find her children and get to the bottom of who has taken them? Is there any future for the two of them?

In this well-paced book with plenty of action (although less direct SEAL action than I expected), the romance is believable, the plot credible most of the time, and the side-plot with an FBI agent and a rich young woman an added bonus. While the book doesn't stand out in any particular way, it's certainly a decent enough read for an afternoon's entertainment.

Originally published on Curled Up With A Good Book at Helen Hancox, 2008
