Conquering Zeus

SEALs On Fire

Last story in the series. I’ve got to say I felt let down by this book but that may be just my expectation. As it was the last of the series I expected a little peek into how the other couples were doing, but since each book was penned by a different author I was doomed to disappointment. Aside from that, I didn’t feel the chemistry between Zeus and Kim as profoundly as I did the other characters in the series.

Kim is a strong woman regardless of her blood condition. The white knight hung up on the damsel in distress is usually a winner for me but while the scenes were hot and the anticipation and frustration felt there was something missing. Perhaps it was that Kim was more defined than Zeus, and his angst over having a relationship was not really fleshed out for the reader. I liked that the author went beyond Key West and showed us how Zeus and Kim were adjusting to life outside of the paradise they connected in and showed they had what it takes to make it beyond the airport. A good read, but we never found out what happened (or who happened) to Tripp, the sexy cowboy who appeared in three of the books and was member number eight of SEAL team Arapahoe.

Book Blurb for Conquering Zeus

Getting in the party mood for a weekend with his SEAL teammates is no easy deal for "Zeus" Calderon. He's hung up on a woman he saved from terrorists months ago. He should be able to forget a gutsy blonde reporter who showed resilience and humor under fire. Shouldn't he?

Kim Stansfield got the instant hots for the hunky Navy SEAL who led her out of harm's way--and she's got proof Zeus feels the same about her. He's stubborn about declaring how much he cares for her, but she's devised a plan to conquer him.
