So few works of literature can place the reader into the boots of a true operator, whom fights the battles that make no headlines, and receives none of the due recognition for those actions they endured. Within these pages a war that is fought within a war is drawn out splendidly, and allows a tiny glimpse into the heart and mind of the ones that do the deeds to protect our nation from the harm that would threaten and disrupt our way of life. The emotional human toll that these elite warriors pay is a difficult translation to make to the written word, where here in these pages we are privileged to share in their experiences and endeavors. From the tragic and pulse pounding, to comedic and subtle pleasantries, this book describes in detail the internal soldier that is often overlooked beyond their tough exteriors. This is a book that really needs more attention payed onto it, and would be great for any collector of current military literature, combat veteran, or readers that would like a unique adventure often untold and rarely glimpsed. A great find, and looking forward to continued works from this author.

This book is pretty damned exciting from start to finish. A lot of war stories revolve around an unrealistic fantasy plot or villain, but Say Goodnight rewrites actual missions from the point of view of a professional sniper and army contractor.
The realistic action sequences made this one impossible to put down. It has it all: assasination, espionage, air raids, infiltration behind enemy lines, and more. As soon as Rick Burns gets a mission he's out into action... not a lot of boring setup to get through. These characters are based on real soldiers and American heroes, which makes the content that much more exciting to read. I only wish there was more to read.
What pushed this review to 5 stars to me was the personal touches the character goes through in these intense firefights and sniper missions. It's not often you get to see the inner turmoil that every soldier has to go through when he takes a life, or the ugly yet understandable nature of confronting terrorists responsible for countless deaths and suffering of innocents. I have military men in my family but never really have the chance to hear about their feelings on the subject, since most soldiers can't talk openly about what they've been through.
This book is just a taste of the reality of our involvement in the middle east, and the part of the story you don't read in the mainstream. The situation is horrible, but we have the world's greatest soldiers doing what they have to in order to protect our citizens as well as innocence abroad. If you are a war story enthusiast, or know someone deployed to the middle east over the past decade, this is a MUST Read.
Special thanks to the author, and all US military for their service to our great country.

Sweet Chocolate’s First Taste – Book Review

Author: Richard Burns

Genre: Short Erotica

Publisher: Muse It Hot Publishing

First Sentence: I was training as an Infantryman in the U.S. Army at North Harmony Church, Fort Benning, Georgia.

Rick, seventeen and a virgin, gets a weekend pass from Army training. He and a couple buddies spend a little money for a night of blissful lust with a sexy black woman.
Trisha spends some time with three Army boys, but one of them requires extra attention and care as a special first time treat.
What can a woman do to a man to satisfy his initiation and first taste of chocolate? Hmmm…
Mr. Burns creates a boy that becomes a man in one evening, from shy to sly, in protagonist, Rick. Told in his first person point of view, it brings the story up front and personal. That’s the charm and the hook.
Trisha comes across warm and understanding as well as amazingly sexy…quite the pick for a first time experience.
Sizzling hot and short – two things I love in a story that includes a satisfying ending. I enjoyed reading Mr. Burns’ story. A nice night time read before bed :) So, if you’re looking for a short read that blows you away in a sensual steamy scene, this is it.

5.0 out of 5 stars What A Lucky Man November 12, 2011
By Kitten
Format:Kindle Edition
Sweet Chocolate's First Taste was just perfect! His first sexual experience was so much better than almost ANYONE has had. SOOOO much better. Having her for his first had to have set the standard for the rest of his life. WOW! Only in our dreams could it have been this good.

Stumbling onto a doorway between time periods, Maggie and Mike release a monster that threatens their lives and the balance of history.
Will they find the threat they loosed on the world in time? Will their lives, and tender new love, be the price they pay for their innocent curiosity?
Get comfortable (but don't forget to bar the windows!) with a fantastic story that weaves time travel, action, heartfelt romance, and sizzling sex!
