We'll take "Give Us A Freaking Break" for $200, please.

To say the Santorno-Youngblood extended family has had a rough couple of years is something of an understatement. Not that they don't enjoy a good explosion just as much as the next guys, but the fun factor plummets when it's your house that's going boom. Toss in a couple of kidnappings, a few maniacal ex-boyfriends, and a smattering of gunshot wounds and these guys have learned not to say "what next"? 

Their lives just never seem to calm down long enough to enjoy some playtime. Josh Reynolds plans to change that by marrying Jason McKinley in Hawaii and bringing the whole gang along for some good times. Josh and Jason's marriage is not the only happy beginning of new life; several of the guys get great news while they are enjoying the island paradise. 

Once back in Fort Worth, the team gets right back to work, with a little extracurricular activity humming along in the background. Greg Farrelli-Reynolds and Tyler Youngblood spring some unwelcome news on their husbands -- right before the team takes on some of its toughest missions. Josh's outrageous former college roommate is recruited as a translator to help the team crush its Russian enemies. Chris Stevens meets Dimitri Voronova, a Russian assassin who just happens to be friends with one of the Santorno guards. The sexy banter flies as quickly as the bullets when they fight to rescue one of the group's own. 

Oh, about those maniacal ex-boyfriends -- what is the deal?!

The Santorno-Youngblood family makes it crystal clear that they are not to be messed with. Unfortunately, some people just aren't very smart.

Twenty years feels like yesterday.

Twenty years ago today, TWA flight 800 left JFK and 12 minutes later, exploded over Long Island. I remember exactly what I was doing and where I was. I was in Tacoma Washington and I was bathing my twins when the phone rang. My father was taking my grandmother back to France for a surgery and they were flying standby when seats became available on flight 800. I spent 2 weeks in New York with the rest of the families, trying to make sense of this tragedy and I was supposed to be there today for the 20 year anniversary but I stayed home. My kids could all be here at the same time in the same place and I said to myself "How often is that going to happen?"

Life is so short, spend time with your loved ones now, because you never know when they'll be taken away.
