Nice addition to the series
SEAL'd Fate (Brotherhood of SEAL'd Hearts) - Gabi Moore

Gabi Moore gives us another entertaining, sexy read in the Brotherhood of SEAL'd Hearts series with SEAL'd Fate. Hugo and Rebecca get a second shot at doing things right, but they have quite a journey to get there. They way they "run-in" to each other is certainly not planned, especially by our playboy, but it certainly adds an amusing touch to the story. Considering those circumstances, Rebecca has every reason to put off by her former love and doesn't hesitate to say so. What follows is a lesson in growing up for Hugo as he realizes what he wants and learning to let go a bit for the no-nonsense Rebecca. Naturally, as this learning process takes place, the heat level is off the charts! We also get the added touch of snippets from the past at the beginning of each chapter, showing just how good this pair is together and the depth of their feelings, even when they don't realize it. 

All- in- all, another great addition to the series!

Wheels Up (Out of Uniform) - Annabeth Albert

This is book #4, in the Out Of Uniform series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  For reader enjoyment and to avoid spoilers, I recommend reading this great series in order.

 

Dustin & Wes have an incredible hot moment in time.  Then they find out they are co-workers.  Now it cost them everything if they choose to be together.

 

Wes moves all the way across country to a new team.  Only to find out he knows someone there already.  Can he resist the one man who has held his dreams captive?

 

This is such a sweet, yet steamy book.  I love this series and how it brings out the characters choosing from real odds for love.  The characters are easy to connect with and have a sparkling chemistry that is hard to deny.  I give this story a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Excerpt:

 

Matthias

 

The moment our lips met my heart struck my breastbone with a sonic boom. Every molecule in me came online. It was as if my body had been on an extended blackout and suddenly a generator had kicked in, a massive voltage surge. A switch flipped inside of me and I went from off to on, from zero to a hundred.

 

The kiss marked the difference between before and now, activating my will to live beyond existence’s basic functions. I was no longer breathing for the sake of surviving, but rather getting high on the heady scent of Jade, gorging on her exotic flavors, getting a fix on a woman who had proven she had all the makings of a dangerously addictive fix…for me.
Jesus fucking Christ. This wasn’t happening, couldn’t be happening, not here, not now, not with this woman. This was wrong, for the mission, for me. And yet this was also right, so right I couldn’t stop it, so pure and exquisite that it demolished the logic that usually ruled me, bulldozed right over my carefully constructed defenses and blew my shields into splinters.

 

I seized on her lips. I drank her up as if I had a right to flirt with pleasure and happiness. Good, so good. She tasted like chocolate and salted caramel, wholesome and true.
Her mouth responded to me, eager, passionate. Our tongues entwined in a mutual exploration that unleashed the storm within, joy and hope I thought I’d never feel again, and lust, a hunger so raw and violent that it roared through my veins and threatened to destroy not only my control, but my life as I knew it.

 

Images flashed in my mind, visual effects of the emotions jarring me. Jade, cool under fire. Solid. Reliable. True. Jade, calm, smart and composed as she confronted Kumbuyo. She hadn’t lost it once, not even when that son of a bitch went at her. She was as brave as they came, bold, daring, fearless. The memory of her standing half-naked under the moonlight had me throbbing with need. She was a woman built for a warrior, a warrior worth fighting for; a goddess who’d stepped out of some ancient African legend to right my fucked-up world.

 

But I couldn’t endanger my mission and I couldn’t betray all that had been entrusted to me. I was trained for duty, which meant I had to pull out of this catastrophic trajectory, now.

 

It was hard, maybe even impossible. I was trapped in the feel of her mouth. I forced myself to think rationally. This was Jade Romo for Christ’s sake, the woman who had the potential to out me and destroy everything I’d built, including the reserve. While she was here, she was also my responsibility. Another thought hit me, one that killed the joy in me. She’d been seconds away from being raped and moments away from being killed. If something had happened to her under my watch, I’d never forgive myself.

 

How I ripped my mouth away from hers, I’ll never know. It took all my willpower. My senses reeled. When her eyelids lifted, her eyes glittered with questions and her hand hovered over her mouth, as if her lips stung as much as mine did.

 

“No, negative, we’re not doing this,” I muttered, mostly to myself. “We can’t. We won’t.”

Point Blank SEAL by Carol Ericson @CarolAEricson
Point Blank SEAL (Red, White and Built) - Carol Ericson

A terrific read. The plot is tight, the suspense is kept right to the end, and the way the relationship develops between Miguel and Jennifer is very well done.

 

Here's the blurb:

 

Tortured in captivity, navy SEAL Miguel Estrada owes his survival to his fiancée, the memory of her keeping him strong through his darkest moments. But when his escape is compromised by military protocol and he suspects the woman he loves is being targeted, he turns rogue.

Jennifer Lynch has spent a year mourning Miguel and raising the baby he never met. But her reality is shaken once she finds him at her door and discovers they’re all at risk.

Putting his life on the line for Jennifer and their child, Miguel is forced to face some hard truths—and confront the secrets that might separate them permanently.

 

 

Miguel is damaged psychologically and is reluctant to re-enter into a physical relationship with Jennifer after he was tortured and possibly brainwashed. The way Jennifer unlocks Miguel is very well done, and I didn't skim through the bonk scene - I was absorbed by it. For a change, it's Jennifer telling Miguel he's strong, not the other way round, which I very much liked. Jennifer's development as the rock in the relationship is refreshing.

 

Recommended.

A Seal's Strength (Military Match) by JM Stewart
A SEAL's Strength (Military Match) (Volume 2) - JM Stewart

 

Out of tragic circumstances a second chance blooms.  The alpha in Gabe is put to the test.  When a father's love for his daughter collides with first love, one mighty Navy Seal is about to be brought to his knees.  A Seal's Strength is a sweet dash of salty with regular sprinkles of naughty.  My favorite moments are the interactions of a father with the love of his life, his daughter. He encourages her, he listens to her and he becomes a better person because of her.  Ms. Stewart can seduce with the best of them, but her stories are more than just wickedly tempting, they spark emotion and humor.
