Seals + Sex = Yummy

This first book in the Alpha Seals series was a great introduction. I really enjoyed the storyline about how two widows end up getting a second chance at love. The two main characters have a lot of parallels of their lives: they are both parents, they both lost their spouse, and they both have high stress careers. When danger threatens Rebecca and her daughter, Nick has to do something drastic to keep them safe. The narrator was new to me and she did a good job of voicing both characters.

Wow

The author really packed a lot of hard to deal with topics into this one book and she did a fantastic job of dealing with them with the respect that they deserve. I loved that the families had to learn how this new dynamic would work and that they were also dealing with deployment and danger at home. Really well written and handled.

Hot guys and excitement

This is my first Makenna Jameson story and it won’t be my last. The Seal team were hot and alpha, the heroine was strong and intelligent, the kids were adorable! Great story with a bit of excitement, I prefer a bit more of a drawn out suspense but it was a good start to the series.

Second chances

We all like to think there are second chances in life. Patrick, a Navy seal, and father had a failed marriage and his ex-wife later died. Now, still in the military, he has to raise his son alone. One night when he was home, he stopped to help a woman change her tire. Little did he know years later that this woman would be his future. Rebecca is a lawyer with a young daughter. Now looking for a no strings attached relationship, she once again bumps into Patrick. But can these two really be casual? Now deployed and Rebecca in danger, Patrick has to make decisions. Will he make it back in time? I love romantic suspense and military romances, and Makenna Jameison gives me both with this book. It's steamy and fun, has a hint of suspense, but what I really love about it is the realistic relationship between Patrick and Rebecca. These two could be anyone we know. They are flawed, scared and unsure of what they want in the future. It's how they handle it all and the results that make me love them! Plus the interactions with the other Navy Seals gives us a glimpse of what there is to come, and it's going to be amazing!

Sophie James has a great voice for narration, and I loved her performance of this story. She brings a variety of voices to the table and keeps consistent with the use of them. She finds the personality of the character and uses the nuances of her voice to give it that emotional push. Always a pleasure to listen to her.

A good start to a Seal Romance series!

Patrick and Rebecca's story is very sweet and in some ways accurate. Both being single parents, the notion of a new partner is a lot more complex. The child or children have to be a part of the process and the two families need to get along. I liked the way Makenna Jameison handled the children and the emotions in this book. Perhaps at some points it was a little much but not in a way that detracted from the basic plot.

I also liked how the other seal team characters were introduced. I hope some of them will feature in the other books in the series. It is always nice to revisit with the same characters and understand how their stories progress beyond th limits of the book dedicated to them.

Overall enjoyable and a good start to the series!

Alpha Seal

A yummy Alpha Seal romance read / listen. Well written with good story line and flow. A bit repetitive in some areas but overall this has just the right amount of sweet romance and steamy heat for this romance listener and enough of a storyline that it's more than just the bedroom. Both are struggling with the loss of past spouses and although they have sworn off love, the feeling they find themselves having for each other can't be denied.

Military Single Parents Romance

I received a copy of this audiobook from the author for my honest review.

Overall, I enjoyed the story. You have two single parents not looking for a relationship but fall into one by chance. As they become more to one another, a threat to Rebecca emerges. Patrick wants to keep her safe and employs his well trained Navy SEAL family without telling her what’s going on. Of course this causes issues, but does it end the relationship? You’ll have to listen to find out.

I think the narrator did a good job, but I really didn’t care for how she read the kids voices.

I would definitely recommend this book to my friends who enjoy military single parent romances.

An Alpha man in ALL areas!

This is a nice story! I enjoyed the characters. It seemed to move along at a nice pace. I liked that he is very “Alpha” and wants control in all areas. His SEAL Buds were quickly in and out of the story so we didn’t get much to learn about them for future books. A good first book in the series.
I did listen to this on audio. Sophie James did a nice job portraying all the characters.

Good story

I enjoyed the story and the fact that it had some drama as well. My problem was the narration of the male character. He sounded forced and unsure of what the next word was. I would like to read/listen to the next book but with a different narrator.

Sexy protective Navy Seals.

I asked to receive this free review Audible book and wrote this unbiased review. This is one of those stories that I hated to see end. The author did an incredible job of story and plot development. Both Patrick and Rebecca have suffered ex-spouse and spouse losses and aren't looking for relationships. Both have one young child. I like how there is instant chemistry between them, but they take it slow because of the children. This story contains mystery, stalking, action, two loveable kids, sexy protective Seals, and hot sensual love scenes. You can feel the love radiating from these two. You can't help but love and cheer them on.

The narrator does a stellar performance of portraying the emotions and personalities of these characters. She gives distinctive voices to them. She is easy to listen to and enjoy. I highly recommend this Audible book.

He can rescue me any day!

I was so psyched when I listened to this, hearing the story is set in the city I grew up in! I love that these two were destined to be together, being they were both in similar circumstances. It's perfect to listen to when you're looking for a short and steamy romance!

Recommended

This story could happen at anytime. I thoroughly enjoyed this couple. Both have had to be strong for various reasons. Past hurts have left scars yet they could still be honest about what they wanted. That was the first thing I noticed. Neither played any games about what they wanted from each other.

I felt the characterization was excellent as well as the overall story. I do think the passage of time was esqued and could use some work to be more clear. Sophie James did an incredible job narrating and bringing the story to life.

I recieved a free Audible copy of this story, at my request, in exchange for a honest review.
