    1. This review was originally posted on Addicted To Romance Summary  Archie Stevenson and Kee Smith end up working together. Kee Smith is the latest member of the SOAR, and a woman to boot. She is fiery and passionate and gets the job done. Ever since she joined the military, she has hard to prove what she can do and that she can match the best of the best. Now she has finally made it, but the fight doesn't end here is just beginning for Kee. Her first impressions aren't the greatest until she me [...]


    2. Not too long ago I reviewed ML Buchman’s THE NIGHT IS MINE, the first book in a four-book series (because there’re four seats on a Black Hawk helicopter) featuring “women pilots who fly for the immensely secretive, real-life U.S. Army SOAR.” I loved it and eagerly anticipated book two in the series. Book two, I OWN THE DAWN, revisits the sunbaked, forward SOAR operations in Pakistan and doesn’t disappoint. I may actually like it even better than book one. Sergeant Kee Smith is an immen [...]


    3. Really Liking this SeriesAfter years of intense work and training, viciously struggling for every hard-earned inch of achievement, Sergeant Kee Smith has finally made it. Using everything from the grim lessons she learned as a kid on the streets to the impact her luscious warrior-woman body has on a man, she has clawed and wrestled and fought for every last bit of progress in her military career, all to get her to one place: SOAR.The Army's Special Operations Aviation Regiment is the best of the [...]


    4. I enjoy reading romantic suspense books that involve the military. Usually, we have a tough as nails hero who needs a special woman to bring out their softer side. With I Own the Dawn, we have the reverse. It's a tough read, because our heroine doesn't fit into a neat mold and you don't always like her, but it's an excellent story about redefining oneself and learning to love who you are, despite your past.Keiko "Kee" Smith has had a traumatic life. At a young age, she was left to the streets an [...]


    5. Had to read this one when I found out it was written by a man. Very good military romance. I think men just do a better job than most women with the details and feel of military life. I like the realism of all of the guns and helicopters being properly named and their effects explained correctly. I enjoyed the tough as nails heroine and the hero who, while not an alpha guy, was strong and quite good and confident at what he did military wise. He just didn't really do well with women. The romance [...]


    6. This was good and I liked the story and most of the characters.while Kee became less of a bitch further into the story.her attitude/behavior in the beginning made me not like her.d it carried through.looking forward to the next one


    7. I must say I've never before read a romance novel written by a man. I was quite skeptical, to say the least, which is weird because if I'm being honest, I don't really like that many romance novels to begin with. They all seem kind of sappy and unrealistic with people just jumping into bed with strangers and are suddenly in love having had no real conversation or interaction other than sex in the whole book.So I decided after being massively disappointed with Shades of Gray by Maya Banks, that I [...]


    8. Review posted: Happily Ever After - ReadsBlog rating: 3.5/5Kee is one tough woman. She’s worked hard to get where she is, one of two women in SOAR (Special Operations Aviation Regiment) or the Night Stalkers. Kee’s youth was troubled and dangerous, she lived on the streets and stole what she needed to in order to survive. When she watched her only friend be gunned down, she turned her own gun on the killers, killing them as well. She killed men who were on the most wanted list so she was giv [...]


    9. The Night Is Mine Book one (Emily Beale's story).I Own the Dawn Book two. Can be read as a stand alone.Amazing story! Highly entertaining and very well written. I literally didn't want to put it down. The author put me on the Black Hawk team and I was there for each battle--military and personal between Kee and Archie. This one goes on my keeper shelf.Competition to get into the elite military forces is brutal and only the best make it. It takes a great deal of discipline and drive to make it th [...]


    10. My Review:OMG! I LOVE this series. I read the first book last yearyou can see that review HEREd was completely blown away by this author's voice. I had no idea if book #2 could live up to book #1, but it so totally did!! LOVE!!!At the beginning of this book, I wasn't too sure. Kee is a tough, really strong gal. She's immediately guilty of judging Major Beale (heroine from bk #1) falsely just because she's female. But I quickly started changing my mind. Kee has come from awful circumstances, but [...]


    11. A 4.5 read for me. A perfect love in the chaos of the middle of a dessert battlefield. I love the heroine, (though age-wise too young for me for her supposedly rank and the miles/hurdles/years she has to overcome to reach where she is) her character make sense. All her actions add up to what her supposed background and made her a unique character for me. My problem with supposedly strong heroine in the past is that once they met the hero they are always ruled with this 'uncontrollable' lust/attr [...]


    12. Reviewed by DesereBook provided by NetGalley for reviewReview originally posted at Romancing the BookEvery scene from this exceptional book had me trying to recapture my breath and afterwards left me craving for more!This is one of the very best contemporary military suspense novels of the year. The tough and sassy Kee made sure to build a wall around her heart to protect her from the disappointments of life. But after the rescue of a young innocent girl, this tough as bullets girl’s armor som [...]


    13. Originally posted at: longandshortreviewsspI Own the Dawn is not your average action story, it's so much more!This is the second in the Night Stalkers series, but even though I hadn't read book one, I didn't have a hard time at all catching up with the action. M.L. Buchman writes with eloquence and a feel for emotion that drew me right into the story. The characters are realistic and fun as well as darned good with guns. I loved it.One thing I really liked about the story was the introduction of [...]


    14. I Own The Dawn is the second book in the Night Stalkers series by M.L. Buchman. Even though it is the second book in the series, it can be read as a stand alone novel.This book wasn't as great as the first book in the series. While the author kept with her usual theme of writing, I found myself disliking the characters. Kee is a character that you have to read more of before you actually start enjoying her character. Archie was more of a passive hero than I am used to. He just didn't fit the bil [...]


    15. I can't get enough of this series. Kee and Archie have nothing in common, but need each other and Archie blunts the effect of Kee's hard edges. Archie is no macho warrior, but his brain is a weapon in a class of it's own and his strength lies in his ability to out-think his opponents and be several steps ahead strategically, a skill that helps him maneuver Kee to exactly where he wants her. One thing they have in common is a fierce desire to protect the little girl who has suffered more than man [...]


    16. The action in this romantic suspense was so exciting it had my attention through out. The romance was good, I liked the little girl, and the heroine's background made it even more intense. My only issue was so much technical terminology but I'll try another book in the series. Outstanding military female Kee is assigned to a helicopter where Archie is co-pilot.


    17. I had a blast reading M.L. Buchman’s first book in this series, The Night is Mine. Interspersed in all that military jargon and mystery is a terrific sense of humor, which is always fun to read and usually difficult for most authors to convey. Not for Mr. Buchman. He does a terrific job. So when I received the ARC of I Own the Dawn, I was expecting more of that. I got the military jargon and the mystery, but this time the humor isn’t present nearly as much. Instead, he brought me to tears.Ke [...]

    19. This review was originally published at Book Lovers IncM.L. Buchman's military romance series is about the four soldiers who crew one particular chopper in the 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment (Airborne), famously known as The Night Stalkers. SOAR exists; they operate out of Fort Campbell, Kentucky, just as the unit does in Mr. Buchman's first two books, The Night is Mine, and I Own the Dawn.What SOAR doesn't have, at least according to the documents I can find, is female pilots like E [...]


    20. I enjoyed this military romance. I will say that there is a lot of military lingo and details in the book but I actually enjoyed that. For the most part it was very accurate - although harboring an orphan girl on an FOB for that long is probably not realistic nor was the romantic resolution as it never dealt with the fact that he's an officer and she's enlisted. Whether he was removed from her chain of command doesn't negate that fact and is still fraternization so they certainly wouldn't be all [...]


    21. Action, suspense, romance and heartbreak for soldiers in the middle of the a scorching desert mired by political turmoil.Kee Smith has had to fight tooth and nail for everything she has and nothing irritates her more than the born into privilege of the likes such as Lt. Archie Stevenson. But first impressions, such as getting stuck in a 'girlie-chopper', are often wrong and Kee learns that opening her heart turns out to be her biggest strength of all.Now, I absolutely loved the first installment [...]


    22. This is probably my favorite book in the Night Stalkers series. It is the second in the series, but I think it's probably the most interesting. The story follows Kee Smith, a mixed race tough girl who survived the Street - capital S and as she describes in the book, it's a place you survive not somewhere you live. The love interest is Lieutenant Archibald Stevenson III. A really nice all-around guy who comes from high class but is down-to-Earth and really likable.The story picks up when Kee is a [...]


    23. Also posted at abbeyannsbookland/3 and a half out of 4This was a very good book. It wasn't perfect, but overall I'm glad I read it.Kee was unlikeable at first. She was a bitch to everyone she met, and they almost never deserved it. I understand the author was trying to portray her as a hard-ass with a giant chip on her shoulder, but in the beginning it's almost like he took it a little too far. As the story went on however, she gradually improved. By the end of the book, I really liked her. She [...]


    24. When I started out reading this one I wondered if I was going to have to give it up. I didn't like Kee, she had such a chip on her shoulder that I wanted to reach through the pages and knock it off and take her down a couple of pegs. I hated how Kee acted with her team at the start, especially Emily. She should have been asking her for advice, instead she was doing what men did to her, make snap judgement based on looks.It took me a while before warming up to her, mostly until she she ended up r [...]


    25. A 3 read for me. A perfect love in the chaos of the middle of a dessert battlefield.I love the heroine, (though age-wise too young for me for her supposedly rank and the miles/hurdles/years she has to overcome to reach where she is) her character make sense. All her actions add up to what her supposed background and made her a unique character for me.

    26. 2.5 starsI was really disappointed with this one. The first book was way better. in I Own the Dawn there was a lot of focus on Kee's insecurities and internal struggles. The romance was the dominant part, not the action and the suspense. Even when you get to the interesting part, it just wasn't that interesting compared to the 1st book. Not to mention that you don't get to the interesting part until you're 3/4 through with the book. It just felt like Buchman went on and on about Kee and Archie's [...]


    27. Although I preferred the first book in this series (by a fraction) I still really enjoyed this.Kee Smith is a bolshy Sargeant who joins SOAR with ahuge chip on her shoulder. Told she is to be part of Major Emily Beale's crew Kee gets bent out of shape - she doesn't want to be on the token girly crew. Whilst it was necessary for the character it didn't ring true that Kee knew of Emily's career as the first woman through SOAR and knew she flew helicopters but didn't know she was the best helo pilo [...]


    28. 4 1/2 starsKee Smith has had to fight her way up through the Army ranks as she breaks through the gender barrier but she is not willing to give the benefit of the doubt to the Major whose squadron she is assigned to. A young orphan girl teaches her that she still has another side besides warrior and an officer tempts her into flouting the rules about fraternization. An enthralling and exciting military romance.A wonderfully fast-paced glimpse of military life seen through the eyes of women servi [...]


    29. From this title, you might be inclined to think this is a vampire story. Wrong. This is the story of a group of men and women in the Afghani mountains. One of them, Kee Smith has a black past that she says she’s dealt with but she hasn’t – not even close. Another, Major Emily Beale, married to a Major as well, was the first woman to make the SOAR team – the Night Stalkers. Kee was the second. Kee came in with an attitude and a mouth. One of the first things she had to learn was to keep t [...]


    30. ABOUT THE BOOK: "The first novel in Buchman's new military suspense series is an action-packed adventure.
