My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Hot Navy SEAL in need of TLC and a funny, sexy scientist who can give it to him. Too bad this admiral's daughter has sworn off all military men.
Alexia Pierce has rebelled against her strict military upbringing and is constantly on the outs with her parents. She has a bad taste in her mouth for military men and the secrets they have to keep thanks to her overbearing father. Now she's taken a new job researching and publicly discussing sex therapy near her family who, besides her hilariously gay brother, is humiliated with her being tied to this field.
When she first sees Blake Landon, Alexia doesn't know he's a Navy SEAL, but she knows he's gorgeous.
“HOT! HOT! HOT! There were a lot of things to be grateful for in life. Good Friends. A healthy body. Chocolate-covered caramel. All good. 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 girly parts assured her."
Blake is on leave to grieve one of his SEAL team members and close friend. He's not interested in any close relationships due the dangerous and secretive nature of his career, but he's immediately attracted to Alexia during their brief beach encounter. Thanks to another chance meeting the two can't deny the heat between them and Blake decides he's up for some sexual healing. Undeniable sexual chemistry pulls them together...until they find out he's her admiral father's SEAL protégé!
I loved the sassy Alexia character and her loving, fun brother Michael. Alexia describing Blake for the first time was sexy and hilarious. Yummy combo. As a reader you feel Blake's inner turmoil trying to reconcile losing his friend and team member performing the job he loves. He's also super sexy and the descriptions of him in the uniforms are mouth-watering. Seriously, I had an amazing visual.
Both the female and male main characters have a voice, which was done perfectly. The secondary characters also add to the story in a very subtle way with the focus being Blake and Alexia. The only issue I have was the repetition of several phrases that made me want to start counting the number of times it was said. A little annoying, but the book was still seriously enjoyable. A SEAL's Seduction has humor, action, and a whole lot of sexy. A light, fun read that ties up nicely and has a companion book with one of Blake's SEAL buddies. I look forward to reading A SEAL's Surrender next.
