Hot SEAL Lover (HOT SEAL Team #2) by Lynn Raye Harris

Hot SEAL Lover (Hostile Operations Team, #11)

 Release June 14, 2016

Amazon Synopsis:
One night in the sheets is all she wants…

Christina Girard is a lady. But she’s a lady whose world is about to implode. She’s done everything right, but she can’t escape the taint of scandal when her husband cheats on her with another man. She’s broken, her spirit battered, her confidence at an all-time low.

Then she meets Navy SEAL Remy Marchand, and parts of her she’d thought dead flare to life. Except Remy is part of the Hostile Operations Team, the Black Ops group her brother works for, and that means NO in flashing neon letters. Yet Christina’s tired of always doing what’s expected. Just once, she wants to saddle up and ride a tattooed, dirty-mouthed bad boy before she kicks him to the curb and goes on with her life.

One night is not enough to put out the fire…

Remy Marchand burns with guilt and regret that he couldn’t save his twin sister from her abuser. He lives his life slaying dragons for the innocent and vulnerable. He thought Christina needed his strength and protection too, but he was wrong. After a single night of pleasure, she disappears from his life.

But then his SEALs get tasked with a mission: infiltrate war-torn Qu’rim and get Christina out before the enemy finds her. With bombs exploding, blood spilling, and survival not certain, Remy protects Christina from harm while vowing not to succumb again to her sweet temptation.

One night is only the beginning…

But life in a war zone is intense, and vows mean nothing in the face of danger. Giving in is inevitable. Staying alive is not—especially when the greatest menace still waits for the perfect moment to strike…  

This is another great read from Lynn Raye Harris. It delivers all the things we expect from her: hot alpha guys, fast-paced action, a hero and heroine laden with ‘issues’ and a connection between them so strong it can’t be denied [although they try, REALLY try], hot sex scenes and a satisfying conclusion. For those who have been following the series we also see many of the characters we have grown to know and love along the way.

I must admit to occasionally wanting to smack the heroine. Her issues led her to a one night stand with the hero and then she left. The hero has his own problems, especially the guilt he feels for not rescuing his sister. Things might have stopped there if there wasn’t a revolution…

When the rebels trap a bunch of Americans [including Christina] the hero’s team is missioned in to get them out of the war zone. It’s a long and dangerous journey and adrenaline is a great prioritizer. Sometimes the truth does set you free…

A great story with a happy ending. What more can one ask?

Can you read this as a stand alone? Yes. Is it better if you read it as part of the series? Yes, it enriches the reading experience if you do.  No, you don’t have to read them in order but again, it is better if you do.

An ARC of this book was provided to me in exchange for an honest review.
