ACCIDENTAL SEAL
Seal Brotherhood
By
Sharon Hamilton
Wrong open house, naked Navy SEAL on the bed, missing Team 3 buddy, gangs, dirty cops, and terrorists. Oh yes, and a love story. S.O Kyle Lansdowne gets lucky, but the path is a very dangerous one.
review-fall-sm

This certainly is a new twist on how not to make a first impression. Although it works out with a lunch date. An almost involvement with a sexy SEAL that turns dangerous before you can blink your eyes.

Dangerous for Kyle because he can’t stop thinking about her and that’s a distraction he can’t afford as he tries to find his SEAL team buddy Armando.

Dangerous for Christy because she not only gets her heartbroken by him but he keeps coming back for more. In doing so he also involves her in his danger as she falls deeper in love with him.

I love this SEAL team, Kyle, Cooper, Fredo, Armando and Chief Petty Officer Commander Timmons. Gunny, owner of the gym they frequent when off duty. He is a Retired Gunnery Sgt. feisty even though he is very ill, he helps the team in so many ways.

I just couldn’t stop reading every turn of the page brought something new and surprising. For the record I’ve owned this book for a while it’s sitting on my TBR pile. It took buying this collection for me to read it. Now I have to read the rest of the series most of which is also in my library. Obviously I’ve waited long enough.

EMBATTLED MINDS
Lost and Found
By
J.M. Madden
Brutally scarred in Afghanistan, Zeke Foster has no expectation that he’ll ever find a woman capable of accepting him the way he is. When the damaged soldier with the kind eyes brings some security to Ember Norton’s crazy life, she’s afraid to trust her luck, but his wounded soul calls to her.
review-fall-sm

I absolutely love this book! JM’s characters are portrayed in such a way that in no way do you feel sorry for them you actually cheer them on.

Zeke has had a hard road, with his face brutally scarred, it has also scarred his confidence. He feels unworthy of anything but disgust for his looks.

Ember sees beyond all the scars and sees the man beneath it all. On a personal level her problems are beyond the physical and she finds herself dealing with a lot of changes. Including falling hard for Zeke.

Don’t miss this great story and the rest of the series. Each book gets better and better.

SEAL’S DEFIANCE
Take No Prisoners
By
Elle James
A Navy SEAL and a beautiful aide doctor navigate hostile territory in their attempt to rescue a kidnapped doctor in the Horn of Africa.
review-fall-sm

This book starts right off with an op. Tasked to take out Emir Fuad Hassan Umar who is annihilating villages in the Horn of Africa. An op that quickly goes FUBAR.

On extraction one copter goes down but before it does, Declan “Irish” O’Shea slides out and falls twenty feet to the ground.

Dr. Claire Boyette along with her Somali counterpart Dr. Jamo had taken as many women and children as they could and hidden them when Umar had headed to their village. Now with the activity in the village they moved away from their tents to hide from the rebels. One they were hidden Claire had slipped away to get closer to the village incase the ones they had left behind need care because of the shooting.

One helicopter flew over her head and then a second one headed toward her and was hit and something or someone fell to the ground within twenty feet of her.

From here out story becomes one of survival. Claire prevents Irish from being detected while the rebels searched the area, then hides him in her tent.

When she and Dr. Jamo are taken to the village proper, Irish finds himself in the position of rescuing the lovely doctor.

A journey that leads to the beginnings of love, a revelation of bio-warfare and so much more. I couldn’t stop reading this one and I have to read the rest of this series soon.

PROTECTING CAROLINE
SEAL of Protection
By
Susan Stoker
Caroline foils a terrorist hijacking of an airliner, with the help of three members of a SEAL team, but after she gets home she finds herself still in the sights of the terrorists. She means everything to Wolf, but in order to save her, he first needs to find her.
review-fall-sm

I’ve read this book before and there is no question this is one of my absolute favorite SEAL books.

Matthew “Wolf” Steel, Christopher “Abe” Powers and Sam “Mozart” Reed were headed to Norfolk. They had two weeks before they were scheduled to leave from there on their next mission. Their intention, to spend most of that time with their friend “Tex” a medically retired SEAL. Tex has some truly awesome computer skills and frequently aided their missions.

Caroline is a chemist heading to her new job in Norfolk when she meets Matthew. She switched seats with him so he could be more comfortable during the four hour  flight from San Diego. A flight that was destined to be a disaster. That is until Caroline smells something off with the ice in the drink she was served. The three SEALs on board with a little help from Caroline, prevent the terrorists from succeeding. It’s then that Caroline earns the nickname “Ice”.

This was just the beginning, Caroline now has a price on her head. The terrorists want to know how she knew something was in the ice.  She’s not talking not to anyone.

We get a little bit of everything in this book a stalking, break-in, witness protection, kidnapping, torture and a love story you will not be able to put down.

SEA OF DREAMS
The American Heroes
By
Kathryn Le Veque
When Blakesley Thorne wanted to start a new life in San Diego, CA, she had no idea that Fate would bring her face to face with Cmdr. Beck Seavington, USN. When Beck must save Blakesley in a final showdown, the Wild West reigns and ghosts from the history of old San Diego come full circle.
review-fall-sm

Blakesley and Beck meet in an unusual way. Her daughter Cadee gets swept into the current of the ocean near their hotel. Even as she dives in to get her the SEALs that were training nearby quickly make their way to them. In a flash mother and daughter were in the inflatable and back on the beach.

Cadee, Crosby and Charlotte all wrap the SEAL Commander around their pinkies and he is charmed. He misses his own daughter so as his relationship with Blakeley grows so does his love of her daughters.

This relationship is fraught with deployments, old curses, exes, murder,  and so  much more. Every page adds to the mystery and the drama.

I got angry, laughed and cried, another one you won’t be able to put down. As well as a series I need to add to my TBR pile.

BACK FROM HELL
Marine For You
By
Marissa Dobson
Wounded Lance Corporal Kyle Phillips had gotten to the point that he wished he’d died on that battlefield instead of living the life of half a man…until a woman with whiskey brown eyes and a feisty side strolled into his room looking to save him.
review-fall-sm

What Kyle wants as he is nearing his discharge from the hospital is a bottle of whiskey. What he gets is a stubborn whiskey-brown eyed beauty.

Staci is getting her master’s degree in Physical Therapy, but while she earns it she visits the military hospital near her home. She goes to just talk to the men there, not in any medical capacity but just to listen to what they have to say.

Kyle and Staci’s first meeting didn’t go so well, he’s still very angry and guilt ridden over the loss of his friend as well as the feeling of being half a man. Having lost one arm and one leg to an IED plus the burns on his chest and neck.

Once discharged Kyle buys that whiskey and a gun. when he contemplated using both Staci’s card falls on top of them. He calls but doesn’t leave a message and doesn’t pick up when she calls back. This prompts a visit from her that will change both their lives.

A story of friendship to love, that will at times bring tears to your eyes. With family issues for Staci to the reuniting with old buddies and families for Kyle. A story of hope.
