Thanks to Netgalley for providing me an advance copy for review.
Preliminary Publication date: Feb 1, 2013.
This is the first Tawny Weber book I've read & I am addicted! The woman is a literary genius and hooked me from the first page!In this book, we are introduced to a super-sexy & troubled Navy SEAL, Blake Landon and the gorgeous scientist who catches his eye, Alexia Lane. From the beginning we see that Blake is hurting from the death of a SEAL team member & trying to cope with it in his own ways.. Alexia has what I like to refer to as the "Burnt Child Syndrome" from dealing with obsessive compulsive & super strict parents and never feeling like she is good enough.. The drama and adventure scenes fall into place perfectly. There is pure chemistry from the moment these two meet up & the book gets oh-so-steamy with the sex scenes! But can these two amazing, yet incredibly troubled people somehow get past their own issues to start a new relationship? Or will a new threat to Alexia's life take that decision out of their hands?...This book is well-written, detailed ad well-researched and is an absolute joy to read! If you are a fan of military men or just romance in general, you will not want to miss this book! Tawny Weber is a fabulous author & this book is purely addicting!
Platinum Reviews gives Tawny & "A Seal's Seduction":5 Platinum Rings!~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Blurb~
Subject: Navy SEAL Lieutenant Blake Landon Current Status: Two weeks of enforced leave
Mission: Distract himself in any way possible
Obstacle: A woman who tempts him to break the rules...including his own!
Navy SEAL Blake Landon (aka “Boy Scout”) knows the rule book inside and out. Checked. Rechecked. But when a mission ends badly, his entire team is ordered on leave. And that’s when Blake sees the tall redhead whose dark eyes suggest that the rules—especially those in bed—are made to be broken.
Scientist Alexia Lane has sex on the brain—partly for work, but mostly because she needs a man who makes her girly parts do the happy dance. Her only no-no? No military dudes. But Blake’s rockin’ bod promises delicious pleasures, and Alexia is halfway to sexual Nirvana before she can find out he’s actually a Navy SEAL.
And where one rule is broken, more are sure to follow….
The Few. The Proud. The Sexy as Hell!
Hot. Hot. Hot.
There were a lot of things to be grateful for in life. Good friends. A healthy body. Chocolate-covered caramel.
But not nearly as good as the sight of a gorgeous, mostly undressed man. The kind of man who made a woman very aware of all her girlie parts.
The one striding along the water's edge was that kind of guy, Alexia Pierce's girlie parts assured her. Gorgeous, built and, since he seemed oblivious to the women he left panting in his wake, as humble as he was hot.
Tall, she'd bet his body lined up perfectly with her five-ten frame. Long legs ate up the sand as he strode toward the ocean, his deliciously broad shoulders straight, his flat belly framed by a tapered waist. He had that sleek, muscled look that said he could kick some ass, but didn't have the bodybuilder bulk that screamed mirror-whore.
Dark hair, a little too short for her taste, had just a hint of curl. She wrapped her finger around one of her own ringlets, figuring a guy who fought the wave would have a little sympathy when humid days made her look like a demented poodle. She couldn't see his eyes from this distance, but he had those dark, intense brows that made guys look ferociously sexy. Either blessed genetics or the summer sun had washed his body with a pale golden hue.
She wondered if he was just as golden beneath those summer-blue swim trunks. Was it too much to hope a big wave would help out in giving her a peek?
The guy was a potent combination, guaranteed to make a strong, independent woman whimper with desire. At least, in her own mind.
As she mentally whimpered, Alexia shaded her eyes against the bright arcs of sunlight reflecting off the Pacific and interfering with her view of the gorgeous specimen of manhood as he dived into the ocean.
She actually envied the water as it slid over that rock-hard body.
"Want a towel?"
"Hmm?" she murmured, absently taking the soft fabric that was handed to her. Frowning, she glanced at the red beach towel, then at her brother. "What?"......
