A SEAL's promise is not only something to live for, it is something to die for. Special Operator T.J. Talbot, raised in a string of foster homes and nearly tossed from the Brotherhood, is forced to make a deathbed promise to care for his best friend's wife and baby. At home, Shannon Moore wants nothing to do with the community or anything that reminds her of her fallen SEAL husband, until fate steps in to show her she is still connected, and needs the love of this flawed warrior who shares her grief.

"Love me s SEAL"
Wow !!! What a story! In the style I came to love from one of my fave authors, Sharon Hamilton took me on a journey that will stay with me for a while. Told by one of the best voices I've heard, JD Hart is pulled me into the story and kept me there. TJ and Shannon's story has everything you need to fall in love with it. Their journey to HEA is rocky and with lots of twists I didn't expect, tragedy and suspense mixed with laughter and joy, some hot sexy scenes. I love the personal touch at the end where Ms. Hamilton is leaving us her personal message as usual, also the soundtrack that fits the series to a T. Thank you for hours of pure enjoyment.
"What A Awesome Story"
This is the first book I've read from this author and I can honestly say it was a really great book. I will definitely be reading more from her and can't wait to read/listen to the other books in this series. I enjoyed this book so much that I'm going to have to buy all the one in this series and read or listen to them in order. That's just my prefence but seeing as this was the first I've read/listened to and its book #8 I will say that you don't have to go in order to understand these books which is great. This is a book that I reccomend you add to your Libaray its worth it.
Yes, I would. While the story line was predictable, it was enjoyable. The narrator did a good job giving the characters a voice.
Yes. While I found no surprises, there was still plenty in the book to keep my attention.
This is the first one I've listened to but I seriously doubt it will be the last.
Yes, it passed the car ride quickly and enjoyably.
"The Promise to Care"
This is my first audiobook review so I sure hope I do it justice. I had already reviewed this book back in March. I found myself enjoying the book all over again. Reading and listening are totally different for the senses.
This book is narrated by J.D. Hart. I started listening and found his smooth, clear voice makes the book even better. You can hear the emotions and the inflections as he is reading this book. I found that it actually enhanced the story and made me want to add the audio files for more of my books.
As for the story itself, so good and emotional. The main character promises his dying best friend that he will watch over his family. This ends up confusing Shannon. T.j. says he loves her. Is it just because of this promise? Is it actually for her?
They have a lot to work out and it takes time. Time he may not have. Shannon get nervous and runs away for a bit. She agrees with T.J. that she needs to give it a fair chance before she just gives up like that.
So many surprises with this book! I do not want to give it all away. Just will tell you if you already love military romances, or this series - it is well worth it. There is nothing like having the sound of a great voice read you a sexy book! Warning: Due to language I recommend for readers over 18+ only. I give this audiobook version a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

"I love this series"
I feel apart of this family this community. you will laugh and you will cry. my favorite part was you got to witness them becoming a family instead of reading about it in the next book.
"Ladies... this one is MINE!"
I just downloaded SEAL My Home, so of course, I had to re-read A SEAL's Promise again first because I hadn't done my review & didn't want to forget how I felt. I know they are "Bad Boys" but they really aren't, they're lovely. I've yet to read a Sharon Hamilton book that doesn't touch me. I would dedicate this book to those times when you think life has just kicked you in the ovaries and you can't see the silver lining.... along comes a majestic warrior & saves the day! Tender, heart-felt, sexy and oh so endearing... those are the words I would use to describe TJ Talbot. I was completely taken in from the first few paragrahps. I love this hero, he's my cup of tea. As I go through Sharon's SEAL books I keep thinking "ooh maybe he's my favourite, but then there's...", yep, just can't make my mind up, but TJ, he may just be the one for me!!! At the end of each book I think "OK, there is no way she can top herself after that!" and then, SHE DOES. Again, the audiobook version is dramatised, yes dramatised, because you forget it's just one man narrating the whole thing! There is nothing missing in any of these books, they're 100% for me, then JD comes along and makes them 150%. It's too much sometimes for my fragile heart because I ALWAYS CRY. I've come to expect a high level of romance, action, fun and diversity from Sharon which is not fair because not everyone can write the next book as good as, or better than the last, but I DO EXPECT THAT from her because that's what I've received from every single book! This is no different, except that this SEAL might have been "imagined" just for me!
Sensual, exciting, togetherness
The way TJ showed strength through finding love.
Everything about his performance. He made Sharon Hamilton's words come to life
Both reactions. You felt it all. You cried through the death of the heroes friend and smiled at the things TJ did to win Shannon over.
Between JD's narration and Sharon Hamilton's words the story swept you away on a sensual delight
Great addition to the series. Loved it looking forward to the next story. Makes you feel like you are there
I was totally mesmerized by TJ and Shannon's inspirational story of love, loss and second chances and I was very impressed by TJ's dedication to his best friend and all the other members of his SEAL team. All of my emotions were engaged throughout this powerful story of selflessness and personal growth. I absolutely loved it!
I read a military romance collection named "Heroes in Uniform" that is full of stories about the special relationships that are formed between men who fight side by side on the battlefield and are dedicated to each other in a way that is equally selfless and inspirational. It's one of the reasons why I'm such a big fan of military romance and authors like Cristin Harber, Lynn Raye Harris and, of course, Sharon Hamilton.
What struck me most was J.D.'s phenomenal ability to bring the characters alive in a way that transforms a book into a technicolor movie experience in my mind. He takes great care to act out all of the parts with different accents and inflections that makes the story as realistic as possible and that really heightens the experience for me. He's so good he makes me forget that I'm listening to one man portraying many different characters and that's what I call talent! I'm a huge fan of audiobooks and J.D. has quickly become one of my very favorite narrators.
Yes! I had many emotional reactions to TJ and Shannon's relationship but the medical emergency that accompanies the birth of Shannon's baby made my eyes well with tears. I really love a story that engages my emotions and makes me care about the characters as though they were members of my immediate family. The authors that bring out those emotions in me are the ones that are on my must-buy list, especially Sharon Hamilton.
Audiobooks have quickly become one of my very favorite forms of entertainment and I especially enjoy listening to them while traveling, cleaning and gardening.
"Brotherhood for life"
Classy, Hopeful, Seductive
The strong male characters remind me of Robyn Carr's Virgin River characters.
J.D. Hart makes the characters seem so real. The inflections in his voice and the different accents and voices he creates make each character seem like they are talking to you directly. He really adds personality to each of the characters.
I could have listened to this book all in one sitting if I had the time. I couldn't wait until I could pick it back up and start listening again each time I had to take a break.
Great job Sharon on creating characters that I continue to fall into love with.
