The Wicked Billionaire: A Billionaire SEAL Romance (The Tate Brothers) - Jackie Ashenden

This is book #2, in the Tate Brothers series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  For reader enjoyment and understanding, I recommend reading this amazing series in order.

 

Lucas wants to keep Grace safe.  If there is anyone who can do this, he can.  Since they already have a history of tragedy between them he feels it prudent to keep his distance from her emotionally.

 

Grace knows that Lucas the means and training to keep her safe physically.  What about her heart?  She has already known tragedy and loss.  Is it wise to find herself attracted to the same type of man again?

 

This book moves at a fast pace.  I like the growing tension and how it is laid out.  The characters clash and the temperature rises.  Makes for a sexy slow burn, but they belong together.  I give this story a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Three former Navy SEALs
Injured in the line of duty
Desperate for a new beginning...
Searching for a place to call their own.

 

Alex Maguire never thought he'd go home again. The perfect soldier, the perfect leader, he's spent his whole life running away from Blue Valley, Montana―but when a tragic accident bounces him and two of his men out of the SEALs, there's nowhere left to turn but the ranch he used to call his own...and the confusing, innocently beguiling woman who now lives there.

 

Becca Denton's like nothing he could have imagined. She's far too tempting for her own good, but when she offers to help turn the ranch into a haven for injured veterans, he can't exactly say no. He'll just need to keep his distance. But something in her big green eyes makes Alex want to set aside the mantle of the perfect soldier and discover the man he could have been...safe and whole within the shelter of her arms.

 

The Prodigal SEAL has come home.

Cowboy SEAL Homecoming is a sweet and adorable romance.

 

I picked this one up; because of a teaser Anna @ Herding Cats & Burning Soup shared. It’s the first night/morning the guys are at the ranch and that morning a goat gets in the house. That scene was so funny. I had to just smile and laugh. It reminded me of farm life. I didn’t have any goats, but I sure did have several other farm animals. You can check out her review and see the teaser; here. Their was also another goat scene that made me smile as well. Goats, they are just too funny!

 

Becca reminded me a lot of myself. She has been sheltered her whole life; because she was a very sick child and her mother worried, so as a result she’s made animal friends on the farm. I wasn’t sheltered, but I didn’t have many friends and preferred to spend my time outside with my animals then with people. I had a great time watching Becca come out of her shell and stand up for herself and her needs and wants. I like that she wants to open an equine therapy ranch for wounded veterans and her stepbrother is all in to help, now that he is out of the service.

 

Alex returns home after pretty much running away from home. The ranch and town hold difficult memories for him. Coming home he is forced to face his situation and all those memories in the past. My heart went out to him. I would have liked to see more time spent on Alex getting help and dealing with his issues.

 

Becca and Alex are step-siblings, but they didn’t grow up together and barely have any type of a relationship, so the romance; between them didn’t raise any issues that I usually would have with this type of a set up. Their romance isn’t steamy, it’s a slow and sweet build. I think anything more wouldn’t have been believable; especially with how sheltered Becca was and the issues Alex has.

 

I had a delightful time with a Cowboy SEAL Homecoming. It had some wonderful touching moments and showcased life’s struggles and overcoming them.

Great Suspense
The Undercover Billionaire: A Billionaire SEAL Romance (The Tate Brothers) - Jackie Ashenden

The Undercover Billionaire is another gripping story by Jackie Ashenden. Ms. Ashenden has once again delivered a story that will grab your attention on the first page and hold you hostage till the end. Wolf is the youngest of the Tate Brothers and I think his story has more angst than the first two books of this series. Wolf kidnaps Olivia de Santis from her father's home, Cesare de Santis is an enemy of the Tates. Olivia and Wolf's story is loaded with action, suspense, drama, humor and sizzle. The characters, especially Olivia, and phenomenal. I enjoyed reading The Undercover Billionaire and look forward to reading more from Jackie Ashenden in the future. The Undercover Billionaire is book 3 of the Tate Brothers Series but can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

 

I voluntarily read an Advance Reader Copy of this book that I received from NetGalley.

HOT SEAL Bride (HOT SEAL Team - Book 4) - Lynn Raye Harris

Let me just say right up front HOT SEAL Bride is one of my favorite books ever written by Lynn Raye Harris. Seriously, I read every single chance I had as soon as it hit my kindle. I've loved Cash "Money" McQuaid since he first appeared on the page and was so glad to see him get his story.

 

I think part of why I couldn't wait for Cash to meet the woman who was his match was because he gave all the other guys such a hard time when they fell in love and always said it would never happen to him. Enter Princess Antonella Rossi and all bets were off. I loved Ella from the moment she appeared on the page. She was such a dichotomy of innocence and sexiness. She has been basically kept hostage by her aunt and uncle since her parents were killed and hasn't been allowed to be around others and her education was limited to what her aunt and uncle allowed. Yet part of her education came from her aunt showing her porn to prepare her for the wedding night for her arranged marriage with the sheikh her family had basically sold her to. Luckily, when she runs away, Cash is the man to appear to help her escape from her family.

 

I loved Cash and Ella together pretty much from the moment they met. I really think they both started falling for one another right away, even if Ella promised she wouldn't fall for him and Cash promised he would never fall for anyone. I felt an instant connection between Cash and Ella. Yes it started out as a friendship, but it was quickly obvious how attracted they were to one another. I loved how much honor Cash had when it came to keeping his hands off Ella so she could save her virginity for her husband and adored just as much Ella driving him crazy trying to rid herself of said virginity. All I can say is when they finally got together the screen on my kindle fogged up it was so freaking hot! I knew Cash would freak out at some point about his growing feelings for Ella and he didn't disappoint me. He also made amends in a huge way. Only made me fall a little bit more in love with Cash to see him finally fall in love.

 

Honestly the only thing I didn't love about his book was Ella's family. Her aunt and uncle were pretty much reprehensible and I wanted to smack them around so many times for how they treated Ella and how they lied to Ella. I love the Ella instantly became family to all the HOT members on Cash's team and she finally had people in her life that cared for her. 

 

HOT SEAL Bride is another winner in the HOT SEAL Team series. I've loved each and every book in the HOT and HOT SEAL series and drop everything to read each new installment as soon as they hit my kindle. Lynn Raye Harris has defiantly found her true voice with these stories.
