A SEAL's Surrender

Harlequin Blaze #739 / Uniformly Hot!

Tawny Weber gives readers everything they want! Heart thumping romance with a side order of family drama and a dollop of humor makes a perfect recipe or in this case a perfect Tawny Weber romance. I don’t know how she does it, but Ms. Weber creates stories with characters I relate to time and time again.

A Seal’s Surrender is a great nice-girl-next-door romance. Eden Gillespie has the charm, the smarts, and the quirky ability to always find herself in a pickle and in need of a strong sexy boy next door. But she’s tougher than she seems. And that is what I really liked about her. She knew when to ask for help and when to tackle a problem head on. Always the girl on the outside, Eden desperately wanted to be accepted, be considered of “them”-the ritzy country club girls that with a single word every one listened. But that wouldn't happen unless she finally made the Cade-ettes. One of the many girls known for sleeping with the town's sexiest boy she’s had a crush on since her school days. The one man she knew without a doubt was not and would not be interested in her. Her hero. Loved the dynamics of this attraction and how Eden’s personality alone had the bad-boy Navy SEAL seeing a future with her. The steamy sex was just an added benny!

Lieutenant Commander Cade Sullivan had always kept a level head about him, never wanting to get tide down to any one woman, especially anyone in Ocean Point. The town he’d been trying to escape since joining the US Military straight out of high school. Back in town on leave for family business, Cade finds himself saving the girl next door once again, but from more than her usual twisted ankle tree climbing antics. This time he’ll have to go up against the one man he’s always butted heads with-his cold-hearted father-in order to save a woman he’s growing more fond of with each passing day.

A Seal's Surrender shined a light on how social influence in a small town or any sized town really can break or make a person. How gossip can turn a profit or just as easily take your dignity. I found this story line intriguing while we followed Cade and Eden's story to finding that ever present happily ever after always found in a Tawny Weber romance.

I’ve grown to love Ms. Weber’s flare for writing steamy romance with heart. I’ve placed her at the top of my must-read contemporary romance authors and look forward to her next release. Thankfully I never have to wait long!
