SEAL the Deal by Makenna Jameison

She needs his protection almost as much as she needs his heart…

Rebecca Mayes has already endured more than her fair share of tragedy. After her husband was killed in a horrific car crash, she’d do anything to shield herself from more heartache. A highly sought after attorney, Rebecca’s success in the courtroom has not come without costs. The disgruntled ex-husband of a client is seeking revenge on the one he blames for his troubles—and his sights are set on Rebecca. While she remains blissfully unaware, he’s stalking her, and getting closer every day.

Navy SEAL Patrick “Ice” Foster vowed to never be in a relationship again after watching his ex-wife slowly die of cancer. That type of anguish was more than he could handle in one lifetime, and there’s no way anyone can change his mind.

Despite their determination never to fall in love again, Rebecca and Patrick can’t deny the connection between them. But when danger lurks around every corner, she knows there’s only one man she can trust to protect both her and her daughter. But who will protect her from a broken heart?

SEAL the Deal, a stand-alone novel, is book one in the new series, Alpha SEALs.

This is an easy read, with a good subject and a decent plot.

Somehow the writing didn't quite work for me – in that everything was laid out too neatly and handed to me. I enjoy hearing the lead characters' thoughts, but not in quite so much detail. And every conversation gave me too much, rather than showing me what I could then deduce. That said, I was invested enough to read it straight through and will definitely look out for this author's work, as the story was good.

This is the first time I've read this author. This particular book wasn't for me but I wouldn't hesitate to try again with another title.

I enjoyed the story, but something just missed the mark for me. I found myself skipping sections, looking for dialogue. While I am fascinated with being in characters’ heads reading their thoughts, this was a little too much detail for me. There was more a telling of the story than showing. I like trying to figure out where the storyline is headed, I like having to guess. This one just wasn't that way. I liked the stalker aspect but it wasn't enough to pull me into the read till the end.
