After being shot down by the Taliban on a Special Operations mission, a Navy pilot and Navy SEAL rescue a beautiful humanitarian doctor. While the three of them evade capture in a race for their lives across northern Pakistan, the two former boyhood friends heal a 10-year breach, and the pilot and doctor find a way to let go of their painful pasts to find love.
The only two survivors of a helicopter crash on Pakistani soil, Lieutenant Commander Jason “Casanova” Vanderby and Petty Officer Shane “Mad Dog” Madden barely escape the smoking wreckage of their helo and hike to a nearby aid station for help. The head doctor, Farrin Barr, has recently evacuated all staff from the facility, leaving her alone to deal with the two military men…and the terrorist horde hunting them.
Chased across northern Pakistan in a race for their lives, Jason and Farrin end up running from their own personal demons as much as from the enemy pursuing them. For Jason, being around his childhood friend, Shane, awakens unwelcome memories of an abusive past, while Farrin is haunted by a decision she made that forever changed her life.
In the midst of the chaos, both mental and physical, no one is more surprised by the attraction forming between Jason and Farrin than they are. Both have lived their lives closed off to relationships, unable to let go of the memories that haunt them. But just when they find the courage to move forward together, people from both of their pasts come back and threaten to destroy the new foundations of their love.

MAN DOWN by Tracy Tappan
I absolutely loved this book!!! Tracy Tappan has joined my list of favorite authors. I can count on her to deliver a story that is the the complete package. I found her with the first book of this series. Man Down has everything! It has hot seals, lots of heat, well developed characters, and a storyline that is believeable. This is the third book in the Wings of Gold series. It can be read as a stand alone book easily, but do yourself a favor and enjoy the whole series. This series has military jargon and a glossary in the back to explain. It has a behind the scenes look at military life. I am hoping this series goes on for awhile.
Man Down is a story about Lieutenant Commander Jason "Casanova" Vanderby, Doctor Farris Barr, and also Petty Officer Shane "Mad Dog" Madden. This story starts out with our seals in training and having been best buddies for years. There's a falling out and their lives go on without each other for 10 years. Their paths cross again during their helicopter wreck during a rescue mission in Pakistan. They have to work together to survive. Dr. Barr has her own issues that she had to work to overcome to be the woman she is now. I don't want to give anything away as this is such a great book full Jason and Farris. Shane needs his book next.
I was very lucky to receive this ARC in returnformy honest review. Honestly, it is an awesome read that I could not put down until I finished it!
This book is AMAZING!!!
This book is AMAZING!!!
The love, the action, the imagery, the plot, EVERYTHING was just so well done, which is typical of Tracy's work!
Just like with the other books in this series (which don't necessarily need to be read to enjoy this one, although I thin you'd love those too!) , it's obvious just how much research went into making the military and geographical aspects of this book as accurate as possible. I know next to nothing about either, but the way the book was written makes everything SO easy to understand. She also includes a glossary to help with uncommon words, phrases and acronyms, which was very much appreciated!
This book was seriously such a well-written military suspense that I would HIGHLY recommend this to non-romance readers as well. Granted, the element of love is prevalent towards the latter half of the book, but this book is just THAT good!
That being said, and true to form for a military story, this book is graphic and deals with issues that may not be for everybody. But have I mentioned how fantastic this book is?!
I loved the love and I loved the ending and I loved the characters and I would LOVE to read a book about Shane next!!! (This series is SO good!!!)
(I received a copy of this book in consideration of an honest review)
Very compelling story. Had me on the edge of my seat. It even made me cry at one point.Can't wait for book 4!😄📚
