Between deployments, he goes back to visit the girl he cannot get out of his mind.

Another great addition
I loved the story of Danny & Luci. So far I have only read 3 books of this series (book 1, 2 and this one) and this one has been my favorite. I think mostly because it had only 1 storyline going on vs book 1 that had multiple stories going on at the same time.
I really enjoyed the story concept, the characters and their dialogue. I liked the Native American aspect of the story. It was nice to see the timeline of someone joining the seals vs. already being part of it.
Unfortunately we really didn't see any "romance" in this book. Was their hot sexy bits? Yes! but actual wooing and romancing? Nope. We had a hook up then, bye bye Danny to the service. Surprises await Danny when he comes back home and next thing you know, he and Luci are in love. It happened a lil too quickly for me.
Danny has his hero moment and we have our HEA.
All in all, a good read. This is a multi pov. Even though it is part of a series, it can be read as stand alone.
Would I recommend this book? yea
Would I read more from this author? yea
