Stay
The Marine's Seduction - Lori King

Bristol & Roan have been best friends since they were kids.  One night gets hot and steamy, and then they are closer than before.  With Roan getting deployed, they both have time to decide what they want by the time he gets home.

 

Roan has been in love with Bristol for so long.  He finally gets to show her how he feels.  When things get complicated, she tries to separate herself from him.  He wants to make the future happen, and show her just how he feels.

 

This was a sweet and touching story.  I am not giving spoilers, but this is a great read.  I love the characters care about each other and there is a solid friendship foundation there.  I also found the heat level was turned up and stayed there.  Always easy to love a man in uniform.  I give this a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Blog Tour - The Marine's Seduction

 

The Marine’s Seduction

 

1 MSeduction  

 

Best friends since childhood, Bristol Abbot and Roan Storm wouldn’t dream of mucking up their relationship with sex, until his deployment going away party and too much tequila drive them together.

 

Six weeks later, there’s more than just friendship at stake.

 

Bristol is pregnant while Roan is stationed overseas for six more months, and neither knows what comes next.

 

As the weeks turn into months, their friendship morphs into a shared devotion to their child and each other. Bristol is determined to honor her promise of including Roan in their child’s life, she just has no assumptions of a deeper relationship no matter how much she wants more.  For Roan, what once seemed impossible, now feels as necessary as breathing, and he comes home with a new set of orders in mind.

 

This Marine has seduction on the brain…

Excerpt:

 

“Whose idea was it to get an apartment on the third floor of a building with no fucking elevator?” she groaned, holding her head.


“If I recall, you wanted this place because of the rooftop deck. Said you could watch the sunrise whenever you wanted like you were on top of the world.”


“Yes, the roof!” Bristol nodded and clapped her hands excitedly. “Let’s go up there and look at the stars.”

 

“You need to get some sleep, B,” he protested as she pulled him through the small apartment to the stairway he knew led above.


“I will, but we can look at the stars now, then when you’re gone, I’ll think of you every time I look up at them. I’ll know you’re looking at the same stars, thinking of me.”


Roan knew she probably didn’t intend her words to be so sentimental, but the alcohol was acting like a truth serum, and it shut down her inhibitions. She rarely allowed anyone to see this side of her. Following her up the tiny flight of stairs, he was soon seated on a wooden lounge chair, with her between his legs, her back against his chest, his arms wrapped around her to keep her warm.


“See, there’s my favorite, Ursa Major, the Big Bear,” she pointed upwards.

 

“Isn’t that the Big Dipper?”

 

“Yes and no. The Big Dipper is part of the Big Bear, but they’re still two different constellations,” she explained. “My dad taught me that when I was tiny.”

 

Her voice was wistful when she spoke of her recently deceased father, and Roan hugged her tighter. Having lost his own mother to uterine cancer when he was eleven, he sympathized with her pain.

 

“Roan, how much longer do you think you can take doing these missions?” she asked randomly.

 

Stunned silent, he could only shrug behind her.

 

“You’ve been gone more than you’ve been home. Don’t you get lonely?”

 

“Sure, every Marine gets lonely occasionally, but I’m one of the lucky ones because I get constant contact. You and my family send me packages, letters, and cards, and I can use FaceTime on some missions, Skype on others. There are plenty of guys over there who don’t have access to any of that.”

 

“Would you stay if they gave you the option?”

 

Roan tensed and frowned down at the top of her head, “What do you mean?”

 

“I don’t know. I just hate when you’re gone. My world seems off-kilter somehow.” She sat up abruptly. “I’m like Lucy with no Ethel.”

 

“Excuse me?” He felt his eyebrow arch in question. “I am no Ethel. If anyone here is Lucy, it’s me.”

 

“Nah, Lucy was always instigating trouble, and Ethel just went along with it.”

 

“Which is exactly why I’m the Lucy in this relationship,” Roan laughed. She shivered, and he tugged her back against him. Instead of resuming their spooned position, she lay sideways against him, her shoulder on his chest, her hands dangerously close to forbidden territory. “If you’re cold, we should go back downstairs.”

 

“I don’t want to yet. I like having you all to myself,” she sighed and tipped her face up, the pale moonlight barely lighting her face properly. “Have you ever thought about giving it up? The Marines, I mean?”

 

“Aw, B, of course, it’s crossed my mind. Every man who’s had to watch a friend die or had to kill someone has second-guessed his career choice, but I was born to be a Marine. Giving it up would be like giving up air. My body just wouldn’t work anymore.”


She nodded, “I figured you would say something like that.” “I always come back.”

 


Author Bio:

She spends her days dreaming up Alpha men, and her nights telling their stories. An admitted TV and book junkie, she can be found relaxing with a steamy story, or binging in an entire season of some show online.

Sweet, sexy romance
The Royal Marine - Claire Smith,Hot Tree Editing,Dahlia Donovan

Akash's friends seem to all agree that he needs a date, but it's apparent that they didn't communicate when he shows up at the Sin Bin to find two blind dates - one with a chip on his shoulder and the other a stoic royal marine. It doesn't take long for the attraction to bloom between Akash and Hamish, but their romance is a slow burn with them taking the time to get to know each other. We also get the added element of suspense with a mysterious fire and Hamish's dangerous job. 

Dahlia Donovan is new to me, so I hadn't read the earlier books in this series, but other than so many names being mentioned at the very beginning, I had no problem following the story. There is plenty of interaction with secondary characters, but this one is primarily about Hamish and Akash. I have to say that I was quite impressed with the author's writing style. The book is wonderfully written, the characters are interesting, and the dialogue is witty and often funny.

Last Marine Standing (Heroes #2) by R.J. Scott
Last Marine Standing - R.J. Scott

Last Marine Standing starts off 10 years ago, when Samuel Larson was a young fourteen, being rescued from a horrific event. Fast forward, and you find out that Samuel Larson is none other than Aiden's friend, Sam. And he is about to go walkabout to find the four marines who saved him so many years ago. What he finds is more than he bargained for, with two of them dead, and the other two being hunted down. Sam finds himself in the thick of it all, with no real idea of what's going on, because Mac can't talk about it without being classified as a traitor to his country.

 

This is a fast-paced story that can be read as a standalone. Viktor and Aiden make an appearance or two, but nothing that would interrupt the enjoyment of this book. Personally, I loved it when they made an appearance, as it always satisfies to see 'what happens next'!

 

Sam and Mac have the attraction there, but circumstances as such prevent anything apart from hot and heavy going on. Still, you can always make time

Didn't Like It
One Week With the Marine - Allison Gatta

Avery Forrester seems to be incapable of settling down on anything from a job to relationships. When her friend-with-benefits, Holden Morris, is on leave from the Marines, she finds out that his plans to settle down make her realize she might have to change so she doesn’t lose him.

I really didn’t this story. I tried to get through it even though I had a feeling I would have a problem with Avery’s personality. I was pretty much done with it after the introduction of Holden, who is well aware of Avery’s tendency to get around and he still wanted to set her up to marry him. The way it was all worded just didn’t work for me.

**I voluntarily read and reviewed this book
