Sleeper SEALS: Slow Ride by Becky McGraw

The Sleeper SEALs, are former U.S. Navy SEALs recruited by a new CIA counter-terror division to handle solo dark ops missions to combat terrorism on U.S. soil.

Each book in this multi-author branded series is a standalone novel, and the series does not have to be read in order. Each book is a stand-alone, with no cliffhanger endings.

Slow Ride
Sleeper SEALS Book 2
Becky McGraw



Lt. Commander Keegan MacDonald has to face the fact his injury meant he was washed up as a SEAL, but who was he without the teams as part of his life? Even though he loved bikes, being a grease monkey at his uncle’s motorcycle shop sure wasn’t providing that answer.

When he gets a call for a special mission from the commander of a spec ops government contractor group, Keegan grabs onto the lifeline with both hands. Not only would he be helping find an intel leak which could jeopardize his teammates in the field, he might be able to find his own purpose during the mission too.

Keegan goes undercover at the Lily Pad, an off-base strip club where the government believes the special access intel is being passed, and quickly narrows down his suspects. The list includes Jules Lawson, a sexy, mouthy waitress who seems to have a hidden agenda.

When that agenda meshes with his own, and he finds out they are on the same team, but at opposite ends of the field, can they put together a partnership? Or will her inexperience and thirst for vengeance get them both killed?

Better yet, when the mission creeps into something much bigger than an intel leak, could he count on the beautiful agent to have his six while they saved the world? Or would she redefine his world in the process?




I am loving this new Kindle world! SEALs everywhere! In this one we pit our hero Keegan against what might be one of his own. As with most organizations, there has been a lack of communication and he finds that the waitress where he’s gone under cover has more skills than the normal everyday worker.

Jules on the other hand has much to prove. She joined the FBI after she lost her parents to the attack on 9/11. Now she wants to be a member of their counter-terrorism unit.

So far she hasn’t been successful, and having Keegan show up just pisses her off. Here is a favorite scene after their first shift together and Keegan finds out she’s a Fed.

“You’re not a good liar, Agent Lawson, but I’m glad we’re on the same team. Taking you off of my suspect list will make things easier.”

Blinding anger and knee-melting relief fought for pole position inside her as she released her pistol and zipped up her bag. She leaned over his plate to put her nose near his.

Your suspect list? This is my investigation, asshole. Just stand down and stay out of my way. Tell whoever you work for that I have this under control.” Her blinding anger now included her new boss for not letting her know another agent was being sent in.

“If you haven’t closed your investigation in three months, Natasha, the odds are you won’t. That’s probably why God sent me here,” he said, giving her a cocky grin that turned her on and pissed her off at the same time.

Now, he was making fun of her? Comparing her to a cartoon secret agent? And God? He really did think a lot of himself.

“You aren’t as badass as you seem to think you are, Boris. I had you pegged as some kind of operator when you walked through the door at the bar.” She stood to cross her arms over her chest. “Your little show to get hired didn’t impress or fool me one bit,” she said, although now, it really did, even though she didn’t want it to.

“I saved you from being mauled by a drunk—so you should be thanking me,” he said, picking up his fork.

“If you didn’t notice, I don’t need your help. I had things in hand,” she shot back, jerking her bag up to put the strap on her shoulder.

“No, it looked to me like the drunk had things firmly in hand, Natasha.” He winked at her before he shoveled a forkful of scrambled eggs into his mouth and she ground her teeth.

“Enjoy your breakfast, MacDonald. I hope you choke,” she hissed.

“Good luck with your research, Lawson. Maybe we can compare notes tomorrow night to see who gets more info.” The corner of his mouth curled and the bastard winked at her again, before he took a big bite out of his toast.

Jules left her breakfast behind to go home and text Brand to find out exactly who this asshole was and what he was doing in the middle of her investigation.

The Latest From Becky McGraw: Safe Mode – Deep Six Security Book 4


Safe Mode
Deep Six Security Book 4
Becky McGraw


Winter Blog Blurb

When you fall asleep in safe mode, they may bury you…

Dr. Grace Wentworth is at the end of her rope with her wild sister who is pursuing the pipe dream of becoming an actress and pawning her daughter off on Grace to do so. When her sister doesn’t come back from her latest audition, and Grace finds out she’s gone to a BDSM resort in Vegas, she has no choice but to go to Sin City to find her and drag her home.

Dexter Buchanan is just looking for a little well-deserved time off from Deep Six Security to wallow in geek talk with fellow techies at the biggest military electronics show in the world in Vegas. What he gets is far from relaxing, however, when he sees his former college friend-with-benefits at the airport being hustled away in a limo to the Silver Chains Resort. After a little research, he finds out the resort is a kink club and thinks his very vanilla former lover and family friend must’ve lost her mind or she might be in trouble.

Could his decision not mind his own business unravel secrets of his own? Would his interference result in him losing his job at Deep Six, and maybe his life to boot? Or would it be his chance to reconnect with his hardcore military family who thought he was a failure, if he didn’t drag them down with his sinking ship?

Winter Blog Review

One of the things I love the most about this series is the camaraderie. They joke around to ease the mood when things get tough. Most importantly they are family to each other, not by blood but by choice.

We get a close look at Dex in this one and everything we thought we knew goes right out the window.

Grace is looking for her sister, but where that leads her is far more dangerous than she realized. This is a favorite scene after Dex gets her out of the clutches of a not so worthy DOM, with him arrested and in the hospital with an allergic reaction.

How in the hell was he going to talk his way out of this one?

Nobody at Deep Six knew his real name wasn’t Dex Buchanan… including Logan.

All he could hope for was that Hawk didn’t believe her, thought maybe she was a kooky hooker he’d picked up or something. That’s exactly what he planned on telling him. Without some quick thinking, and believable explanations, his whole life could implode.

Because he just couldn’t mind his own business.

“Who’s Logan?” Grace asked turning back toward him.

“My boss, why?” Dex asked, his teeth clenching.

“Hawk is calling him to get bail money before he heads over here. You’re fortunate to have such good friends,” Grace replied.

“He’s going to need every one of them too,” the officer grumbled, as he pinned Dex with a glare. “I’ll get the nurse to help you get dressed so we can take you downtown.”

The door closed, and Dex sat up on the bed. Downtown. To be fingerprinted and booked into the Clark County jail. Anxiety tightened his chest and he swallowed several times before ridding himself of the knot of fear constricting his throat.

For six damned years he’d kept a low profile, built his new life, and in one night it all went to hell. His real name would now be connected to his alias, so if Sheridan was looking for him, he’d know exactly where to find him. Logan would know his former identity too, and if Dex didn’t do a lot of creative explaining, he might fire him for lying on his resume.
“I hope you know what you just did, Grace. What it cost me to help you last night, and the price I’m going to pay now for it.” Sickness boiled in his gut, and Dex wished like hell he could put a hand over the burning hole there.

It looked like the only two lies he’d ever told in his life were converging and the epicenter for the fallout would be Las Vegas.
McGraw, Becky. Safe Mode: Deep Six Security Series Book 4 (Kindle Locations 955-972). Kindle Edition.

From here it gets more intriguing as the team takes on the task of finding Grace’s sister.

Dex reunites with his family and their are surprises at almost every turn.

There are parts of this that were difficult to read because of the situation and the detailed descriptions of what is going on. Definitely not a read for the faint of heart.

Extremely well written and the relationship that emerges between Grace and Dex is feisty, sweet and sexy as hell.

Blurb Spring Blog - Copy

Doctor returns to hometown when mother takes a fall and falls harder for new town Sheriff…her first love.

Review Spring Blog - Copy

When her mother has an accident, Dr Melanie Fox returns to her hometown. Her first meeting with the Sheriff starts off pretty harsh on both sides. She is about to receive several tickets when the Sheriff is distracted by his ex pulling up. That brief encounter sets Melanie off on a quest to find the reasons for the child’s illness.

Brock is puzzled by the fact that no one seems to be able to figure out why his son Brady is so sick. The medical bills are killing him. His son’s mother just keeps taking him to doctor after doctor and there is seemly no end in sight.

This is a look at when Brock decides he’s had enough.
Brock ground his teeth as the stupid vision that had haunted him all fucking night reappeared. He couldn’t ignore it anymore. That’s exactly where he was going right now— to Merry Fox’s house to ask Melanie to help him.

“Better yet, let’s get you dressed, Brady— I’m taking you to see a doctor.”

“What doctor?” Lucy asked, her eyes narrowed.

“Melanie Fox,” he replied, tossing the clothes to Brady. “Put those on.”

“Hooty?” she asked, shaking her head. “She’s in California, isn’t she?”

“She’s back in town to take care of her mother and aunt. That woman I stopped at the diner yesterday was Melanie Fox.” Brock scanned the floor and found Brady’s tennis shoes at the end of the bed, then helped him sit on the bed and put them on.

“That was Hooty?” she asked, her voice shocked. “Good gawd, she must’ve had an entire body lift done in California. She needed one.” The nasty snigger that punctuated her words raked over every nerve in his body.

“Yeah, she looks damned good, doesn’t she?” Brock asked, and enjoyed seeing the smile wilt from Lucy’s face. “She’s also a doctor now, so I guarantee she’s smart enough to figure out what’s wrong with him, or find me a doctor who can.”

Lucy’s indignant gasp was music to his ears as he tied Brady’s shoes. When he finished, he looked at Lucy and she wore a worried, sour expression, which he knew wasn’t because Brady was sick and that pissed him off. She’d become more and more blasé about their son’s illness over the last year. That expression was solely because she now saw Melanie as competition.
Cowboy Justice 12-Pack (Kindle Locations 4040-4053). . Kindle Edition.

I really felt sorry for Melanie, her mother and her Aunt were truly out of control. Worse though is Lucy, Brady’s mother and Brock’s ex-girlfriend. I loved the father/son relationship and how nicely Melanie fit in. A nice example that the past doesn’t have to rule the future.

A gripping story that brings to light a disease that is not common. It also brings home the fact that sometimes too much of a good thing can be bad.

Christmas 2015 Blog Review

Let’s take a trip, this time to a ranch in Texas. I love how Becky puts us right into the feel of ranch life. As you read you can smell the hay and other things. But mostly the sweet, fresh country air.

Cole and Hope have last ditch jobs at the Mall, as Santa and his photographer elf. However her first day becomes their last when a screaming child’s antics pushes Cole beyond his limits.

Cole fires his agent, who is faithful to the client who has now blackballed Cole’s modeling career and decides to tuck tail and return home where he belongs.

Hope lost everything, her best friend, her fiancé, her inheritance and her family when her camera malfunctioned at a socialite’s wedding. This job was to pay her rent, now she’s lost that too. Then she comes up with an idea that would save her career, boost her friend Tina’s company and launch Cole’s career again if he chooses.

Cole’s father is sick, the ranch falling apart, his brother distant from his son, and Cole’s return is like a slap in the face. Hope’s idea falls to the wayside, but she offers up another way to make everything right for her, Cole and his family.

The only thing they don’t see coming is the love that sneaks up on them.

A story of family and hardship and the love that binds them whether they like it or not.

The Cowboy Way is one of my favorite series and this is the beginning.

My Review of Sealed Fate – By Becky McGraw – A Kindle Worlds Hot SEALs Novella

Sealed Fate Cover

SEALed Fate
(Deep Six Security Book 0)
by Becky McGraw
Publisher: Kindle Worlds August 2, 2015

SummerBlog Blurb

Former Navy SEAL Jaxson Thomas left the teams in disgrace to save his squad from being dragged through the mud with a JAG investigation. He never thought he’d have to leave the civilian job he got after the teams in the same way, but that’s exactly what happened. To keep his friends at Deep Six Security from losing their biggest contract, he takes the blame for an assignment gone bad. The SEAL mentality drilled into him for years won’t let Jaxson give up though, so he goes to work for Guardian Angel Protective Services, a new security firm started by his former SEAL teammates, hoping yesterday would be his last bad day.

His first GAPS assignment tells him more bad days are coming however, when he is charged with protecting the woman directly responsible for his exit from the teams. Frumpy Fallon Sharpe is now a federal judge, and the big-mouthed redhead has taken on an East Coast mafia family who wants her dead. She will only accept a SEAL to protect her and his new boss insists that he’s the man for the job, but Jaxson isn’t so sure since he’d been dreaming of killing her himself for five years.

He takes the job, because he has no choice, but the last thing Jax expects to feel for Fallon Sharpe when he sees her again is attraction. Even though her waspish mouth is the same, the thick glasses and frizzy red hair are gone and those damned spindly legs that reminded him of a flamingo before have toned up and end somewhere near her ears now.

Dealing with his old hatred and this new attraction while trying to protect her was going to make the assignment the perfect storm that could lead to a Charlie Tango Foxtrot of epic proportions if Jax wasn’t careful. Maybe the last one of his life.

SummerBlog My Review

This book was a gift from the author in exchange for a fair and honest review.

Jax definitely has his hands full trying to protect Judge Fallon Sharpe. Aside from the obvious hit men from the mob, there are other things that threaten the two of them. One of which is a hit squad sent by an Arab prince to do away with him. Not to mention the attraction Jax has for Fallon, in spite of all that has transpired previously.

I would say Fallon was having a very bad day when first the mob attempts the hit and then a much more profession version tries while they are traveling to the safe house. All this on top of telling Jax she knows he wasn’t guilty of the charges that led to his discharge.

The action and suspense is top notch. The arguments explosive and sometimes funny topped off with sizzling sex.

I just couldn’t stop reading until I came to the very end. I hope we see more of Jax, Fallon and the rest of the gang in future books.

I can’t wait for the next installment in the Deep Six Security series!
