Good start to the series!
This book could have been great but it felt rushed to me. There could have been a little more story and it would have turned my rating to 5 stars. I liked the writing and the characters but I didn't feel the love between the them because they only had about 3 meeting before he realized he wanted her forever. I know it was over 6-7 months but I just needed more details and more encounters. I thought the sex scenes were super hot and the lead up for the rest of the series was definitely intriguing! I think this will be a HOT series with sexy Alpha male SEAL's (how could it not be)! The narration was just ok, I think it would have been better with dual narration because Craig Jessen has a sexy voice but not a great female voice. I will listen to book 2!

Smexy first book in the series
This is a really interesting, if brief start to the series. I am excited to read more of these smexy SEALs. Jon and Ali have a quick one night stand that builds to more over time.
The narrative is mixed between the two leads, alternating POV smoothly. I prefer this method, because you really get to see into the characters. Jon tends to keep his feelings on lockdown, he is rather serious. Ali is a great match for him because she brings levity to his somber moods. I will enjoy seeing more of them together as the series progresses.
Lots of supporting cast here as a few hints at future pairings. There is great potential in this series and where the stories can lead.
Yes, it is hot and smexy. Could have been hotter, as their time together was hurried. I would love to have a really nice long drawn out encounter. Sure they had that, but it was a case of tell and not show. I wanted to be there in every steamy caress of the reunion!!
I listened to the audiobook narrated by Craig Jessen, who has a great voice. I really enjoyed the timber of his read throughout. The men's tones are deliciously deep, while the women tend to be breathy. I did enjoy his pace, it moves the story along at slower moments.
A quick listen and tease for the series. I want more!!
