This was good. Not exactly "happy". But, so much more real than a lot of the military romances out there. I did feel like the hero and heroine didn't know much about each other, except for the big emotional stuff they shared. Which is definitely important. But, so is the day-to-day stuff. Anyway, I've already picked up the next two in the series, but I'll have to read a fluffy happy book or two between them to balance them out, since I'm doubting they're happy-happy-joy-joy.
