Unshapely Things (Connor Grey Series #1). Connor Grey is my hero. Life is not what he planned for himself. Despite his flaws, he is tenacious and gets the job done. I relate to this protagonist more than any other.
Physics makes my brain twist into impossible contortions. The action and characters made the brain contusions worth it. Eventually I gave up questioning the details and just accepted the premise. And later I went to the book store and bought physics books for dummies!
Here it is the book that launched the "Oh John Ringo No" meme. Ghost is the code name of former Navy SEAL Michael Harmon. When he sees the kidnapping of a college coed little does he know that he'll be drawing all of his SEAL training to stop a continent spanning terrorist plot. The Ghost novels remind me of late 60s men's adventure stories like The Destroyer with lots of action and more then a little sex.
