Review: Navy Blues by Debbie Macomber

First line: Seducing her ex-husband wasn't going to be easy, Carol Kyle decided, but she was determined.

From the back cover: Despite her ex-husband's bullheadedness, Carol Kyle knew he'd be the perfect man to father the child she so desperately wanted. Yet she also realized that the strong, honorable man would never allow his child to be raised without a father. So Carol needed to plot, to plan, to maneuver, to seduce Steve into her bed for one last time...And then once more. Still, the passion when they were together was never the problem - it was the absences that tore them apart. Had they grown enough to chance trying again - especially when Carol's plan seemed about to work?

My thoughts: I have been reading Debbie Macomber for almost as long as I can remember. I think I first came across her Dakota series and then started reading anything of hers that I could. Of the six books in this Navy series, I had only read three, so I decided to try to locate the other three at the library and read them. I certainly wasn't disappointed with this one.

Navy Blues is the tale of a divorced couple that is still in love. Carol wants one thing out of life and figures ex-husband Steve can give it to her - a baby. She sets up a plan and hopes that one thing will lead to another and they will wind up in bed, where they never seem to have any problems. It seems that Steve, though, can't seem to get out of his own way...he is quick to misjudge situations and sees only what he wants to see at times. Can he learn to listen and hear before jumping to conclusions or are these two destined to stay apart?

I enjoyed this story and am looking forward to reading the rest of this series as soon as I can find them at the library.
