ARC Review: Covert Seduction by Callie Croix
Rating: 3.5 out of 5 Stars
Navy SEAL Reid Galvin is back from hell and eager to find comfort in Becca Anderson’s arms. He knows he hurt her when he cut contact during his deployment, so when his call interrupts her date with another man, he has only himself to blame. But he can’t forget what she means to him—or the sexy email she sent him—and he won’t miss this chance to claim her as his own.
It’s been weeks since Becca heard from the man she thought she was involved with. So when Reid wants to take up where they left off as if nothing happened, she refuses. Then he rescues her from a first date gone very wrong, and she realizes she’s not quite ready to let him go.
Reid and Becca have a lot to talk about, but since she’s not listening, he’s going to have to regain her trust another way—by bringing her most erotic fantasies to life. Making her surrender to pleasure just might be his most important mission.
Well what isn’t there to love about a man in uniform? Reid is super hot and sexy especially saving Becca’s life.
Reid Galvin vows to make things right with Becca especially after he didn’t talk to her during his last deployment, even though she was quite vocal about some of her fantasies involving our Navy SEAL. Reid sets out to make things right, but ends up interrupting her while she is on a date with another man. Determined to make her talk to him, he heads over to her place to wait for her. However, he ends up rescuing her after the car she was in was ran off the road and into water. Reid realizes that Becca is in trouble and ends up protecting her while they figure out who is behind the attempt on her life.
Becca Anderson fell hard for Navy SEAL Reid Galvin. Hurt by his actions when he was deployed and the constant efforts to have contact with him ignored, Becca was over him so to say. However, Becca finds herself a helpless target of attempted murder after she decoded some accounting files. She is at Reid’s mercy both in the bedroom and out of it as they try and keep her safe until they figure out who is trying to kill her. Although she says she doesn’t want Reid, her body and heart betray her, leading to some sexy sex scenes.
The novel was an overall good read. It felt quick though. The chemistry between the characters was undeniable as was their lust for one another. You can’t go wrong with hot sex, a man in uniform and a happy ending.
If you are looking for a quick, steamy read- this is one you should check out!
