A SAHM that reads and reviews romance (all sub genres of romance), Urban Fantasy & Sci-Fi, sometimes Horror, and YA (some sub genres of it).
I've been reading since I was my oldest daughter's age….thanks to R.L. Stine & Christopher Pike…and later on thanks to Anne Rice. Those 3 authors changed my life and I have been obsessed with reading ever since.
I’m going to admit and say I’m a new fan girl of Lora Leigh. I wish I would’ve read her books sooner because I’m officially addicted. I’m in love so far with the Tempting Seals series, but it could because I’m on a military read kick right now and can’t get enough of books like this. Lora Leigh though knows how to suck me into the story…literally. =)
We have Clint “Iceman” in this story of Tempting Seals and let’s just say he may have just became my favorite fictional Navy Seal ever. (of course it could change with the other books in Lora’s series) He’s on R&R after taking down a drug cartel, but of course his kryptonite at home is deep in trouble. Morganna (his best bud’s little sister) has always been on his radar, but he chose to stay away because he didn’t want to harm her in any way. Unfortunately, she’s got herself in the middle of something that he now has to get her out of before she gets hurt and before her brother finds out about it. Morganna though has tried everything possible to forget about Clint, but he always has a way of getting back into her heart and ruining her. She’s changed though. She’s not the same girl as before. In fact, she’s undercover with the DEA to uncover who is using a date-rape-drug on girls and killing them. Clint is not going to make it easy for Morganna though.
Clint is your typical big protective over-bearing alpha male character who has issues mentally about making his true feelings of Morganna be known. Oh, he drove me crazy, but he also made me go crazy in a good way. Umm…let’s just say he has something that left Morganna in shock and drooling. Holy moly! I find myself still reading a specific scene of the moment he got naked in front of Morganna the first time. (*cough* he has something done *cough*) He always surprised me in the story with other things. Yes, Lora Leigh gave us a character that is amazing in bed, but she gave us someone who will kick butt if you mess with his woman…especially look at her the wrong way. He’s a Dom…so he has his reasons of being alpa.
Morganna is not your timid shy girl. She can hold her own. In fact, she puts guys in their places several times. Even with the ruthless over-bearing Clint. I loved their banter back and forth in the story. My mother would consider the banter…the old married couple banter. The role she had to play undercover definitely made Clint uncomfortable at times and I loved how she handled him when it came to her job. Although, she had moments of falling off the horse and letting him affect her life, but she got back up and put him and her co-workers in their place. Poor woman just wanted to be respected and also get her crush to realize that she loved him. Geez…hard headed men! There is a age difference between Clint and Morganna, which makes Clint put the brakes on becoming serious. (I wanted to bonk him over the head at times and make him realize age didn’t matter) Grr!
The storyline was engaging because Lora Leigh made me go on a ride with the characters, to find out who was behind the drugging of the girls at the clubs. When the clues starting coming forth, Clint started realizing that it may something he have dealt with before. There also was something going on with Morganna’s DEA team and Clint needed to find out if everyone could be trusted on the team.
There is a lot of sexual tension, action-packed drama, LOTS and LOTS of nakedness, and some minor Dom/Sub (or Dom/Dom…because a certain character is more better as a Dom than she is a Sub) action in the story. There’s also moments of close calls and crazy moments between the two crazy love birds that they definitely don’t want people to know about. We even get Reno and his lovely lady, Raven in the story a few times. *sigh*
I give this book 5 full moons and highly recommend it to readers out there that enjoy romantic suspense, contemporary romance, Navy Seals, Dom/Sub, and I could go on and on. Let’s just say you will not be disappointed.
