Special Forces by Erosa Knowles is a great novel that starts off with a seemingly simple plot but it gets more complex as the story progresses. The characters appear very realistic. Lynay is identifiable as a single mother trying to make ends meet in a very tough economy. Tyson’s situation is not as common but his love for his aunt is an admirable quality. The lengths he’s willing to go speaks of how much he values his aunt’s well-being. I liked that although Lynay and Tyson’s marriage started as a business arrangement, Tyson wanted to explore a more personal relationship. The author keeps us waiting for the good parts as Tyson is called away to duty. When Lynay and Tyson finally consummate their marriage is it sooo good, she’s knocked up on their first go around. The plot thickens as Tyson’s ex-wife tries to destroy them and their marriage but what happens to her and her foolhardy friends is just reward. Special Forces has an attention grabbing plot and interesting characters I wanted to see find a happy ending. The author gives them a nail biting but very happy ending.

Major Tyson Bradford is being called into duty but he needs someone to assist his ailing aunt while he’s away. Lynay Grant is feeling like a failure. Her job just cut her hours to part-time, she’s behind on her rent and she can’t afford the proper medical care for her young son who has severe asthma. Tyson’s sister Anne comes up with a solution to both their problems but it’s very unorthodox to say the least. Anne suggests they get married then Lynay can move into Tyson’s house and help out with his aunt, solving his problem. Lynay’s housing situation will be solved too and her son would get the benefit of having medical coverage under Tyson’s military insurance. Both reject her suggestion until they realize it does solve their problems. Unfortunately, Tyson’s ex-wife is not happy about him remarrying and launches a reign of terror with the intention of destroying their lives. She almost succeeds until Anne and Tyson’s friends rally around them and thwart her vengeful plans. Tyson and Lynay’s marriage is no longer for convenience but for love.
