Seal My Home (Seal Brotherhood #9)
Genre: M/F, Contemporary Romance
Bad boy Rory Kennedy was raised in foster care, bouncing in and out of trouble along the way. He finds his true family and real brothers as a Navy SEAL, one of the Navy’s elite warriors. When his BUD/S instructor barked the SEAL’s Motto: Only Easy Day Was Yesterday, he knew he had found home.
Megan Palmer works in a bookstore and finds her passion in life through reading steamy romance novels. Her brief affair with a man she later found out was married has left her damaged, until she meets the handsome SEAL, who stands ready to open her world and give her things she’s only dreamed.
On a skiing trip, Rory suffers a possible career-ending injury and also comes face to face with a past he never knew of, and a family who had abandoned him. His relationship with Megan is tested to the breaking point as Rory wades through the dark waters of recovery and whether or not he can live without the life he loves. A home-grown terrorist cell forces his hand and he discovers his true purpose.
Whatever she’d bottled up had come loose. Her appetite met her need, which should have scared him. But for the first time, he wanted her to need him. He could fill he up. She was starving for it.
And so was he.
She was sleeping, and he fell into her rhythm, inhaling when she did, exhaling also in tandem, feeling her soft sex crowning his thigh. He thought of all the lovely things he wanted to say to her, but knew he shouldn’t. He knew the speaking part would mess up what he now felt, something he rarely felt.
He tried to breathe without making a sound, hoping that this time together, which was as precious to him as the love making part, was prolonged for as long as possible. She was fire and ice. The salt and the caramel. She tucked inside the hard exterior of his soul and shivered, rested there under his protection.
He must have twitched or done something, because she startled and rose up quickly, rolling to the side and covering herself up. He could almost feel her heavy thoughts tossing about the room as he viewed her light pink spine glowing in the near moonlight as she sat on the edge of the bed away from him. An inch of her butt crack was in shadow, but the alabaster surface of her skin was flawless and made her look like a statue.
He inhaled without a sound, and let his index finger trace down the middle of her back, traveling over the ridges of her vertebra. She stiffened at first, then rolled her head to the side and killed him with the blue gaze that showed him she was still hungry.
“Come here, Megan,” he said, worried he’d been a little too loud.
She touched her shoulder with her ear in a shy move that belied her real feelings for him. He could see it in the coral shaded corners of her lips, how they quirked up at the ends.
My Review: 4/5 Stars
So I’m a little peeved that I’m just learning about this series. Where the heck have I been hiding because seriously what woman doesn’t love a sexy many in uniform and a Navy Seal at that! I have to start this series from the beginning ASAP.
Seal My Home grabs you in and doesn’t let you go until you finish the book.
The life of a wife or girlfriend to any military personnel is a hard life. It’s not all roses and when Megan realized she could see herself with Rory, she had to ask herself if it was something she could truly see herself doing. Even though she had her doubts at time, she showed that she was a trooper and that Rory could rely on her to be their for him. Even in a life or death situations.
Rory damn, just damn. Where has he been all my life? He went from meeting Megan and only wanting to show her a good time, to thinking of having a committed relationship with her. I get why he was hesitant at first because his line of work isn’t the 9-5 kind of job. He puts himself out there and you don’t want to have to worry about your loved one at home.
This book has it all from sexy, hunky Navy Seals, down to earth female leads, suspense, action and steamy love scenes.
I can’t wait to start the series off right and because I am the way I am I get to rad Rory all over again! Yay!
