From publisher: Subject: Navy SEAL Lieutenant Blake Landon Current Status: Two weeks of enforced leave Mission: Distract himself in any way possible Obstacle: A woman who tempts him to break the rules…including his own!
Navy SEAL Blake Landon (aka “Boy Scout”) knows the rule book inside and out. Checked. Rechecked. But when a mission ends badly, his entire team is ordered on leave. And that’s when Blake sees the tall redhead whose dark eyes suggest that the rules—especially those in bed—are made to be broken.
Scientist Alexia Lane has sex on the brain—partly for work, but mostly because she needs a man who makes her girly parts do the happy dance. Her only no-no? No military dudes. But Blake’s rockin’ bod promises delicious pleasures, and Alexia is halfway to sexual Nirvana before she can find out he’s actually a Navy SEAL.
And where one rule is broken, more are sure to follow….
The Few. The Proud. The Sexy as Hell!
Thank you to Harlequin Blaze and Netgalley for the opportunity to review. Okay let’s see where do we begin?
We have a very smart and defiant female lead: only issue- the need to stay away from Navy boys and Military men in general! That comes undone when she meets Blake. Not realizing that he is a SEAL, and under her father’s command, until her fathers retirement party, Alexia engages in a few days worth of sex, fun and a lot of orgasms!
Blake has just lost a member of his team and one of his best friends. Ordered to a mandatory 2 week leave, he finds himself spending a rocking few days with a specific redhead. Allowing himself to get close to someone and “break” his own rules of allowing himself to believe in more than just his job, Alexis changes his world and shifts it upside down.
Both of their worlds are shattered when she learns that Blake is a SEAL and she feels betrayed while he feels hurt and angry at her behavior. She only had one rule: no military men….
When Alexia is kidnapped, her father requests Blake and a specific SEAL team to rescue her. After eight months of thinking about her and wanting her, he accepts his mission and sets off to Alaska to rescue her.
Wow!!! Blake in action, is probably one of the hottest things I’ve read in a while. Blake is conflicted between his feelings for Alexia and the basics of his training, yet he manages to pull through and bring her to safety where they end up sharing another night of passion.
The novel was a quick read and my only complaint is that I wished it was slightly longer. I was happy that Blake and Alexia ended up overcoming their insecurities relating to their relationship. The characters were fun to read and the interaction between them seemed to flow very well. Their chemistry is definitely hot and not to be missed!
If you are looking for a quick read…I definitely recommend Weber’s A SEALs Seduction.
