Review – Sweet For A SEAL by Anne Marsh

What Worked For Me:  It’s been awhile since I’ve read anything by Anne Marsh so it was a lovely treat to read Sweet For A SEAL.  It was also very easy to remember why I love her quirky and zany brand of writing.  This book was fun and fresh with a unique plot.  Now, I must admit, at first, I absolutely did not like our hero, Finn.  He is a dawg!  Talk about being over cocky and even a touch of a braggert.  Still, his occupation was endearing and his propensity for collecting stray animals, even more charming so I stuck with him, and I sure am glad I did.  There were so many layers underneath this bed-hopping ex-SEAL and once you got to know him, he was an amazingly beautiful character.  His heroine, Vali, is a total sweetheart who has known her own amount of pain and loss.  But she is such an inspiring woman who is embracing so many sides of life since she has such a renewed appreciation for it.  Finn and Vali are absolutely perfect for each other.  The have amazing chemistry…really, the two of them caused sparks to shoot out of my Kindle.  The sex scenes were tastefully written and erotic without being over-the-top.  Finn’s partners and Vali’s friends are interesting and have intrigued me so much, I hope the author tells their stories.  I laughed quite a few times at the antics of Vali’s mother and found her to be a hopeless romantic, who gives some pretty stellar advice!  The plot is steady and well written with just the right amount of angst to keep you engaged.  One of my favorite things about this book is that neither Finn or Vali were perfect.  The author made both of them extremely real, complete with current medical issues and traumas that make them who they are.  I applaud the author and willingness to make these characters believable, as if you could picture yourself as one of them.  Overall, this book was a fun and entertaining read and I look forward to more books in this series.

What Didn’t Work For Me:

The ending of this book felt a tad bit rushed and left me hanging a little bit.  Hopefully we can see more of this couple and what the future brings for them in the next book.

Would I Recommend This Book:  Yes, to my friends who like contemporary romances with lots of heat and well written, believable characters.

Final Star Rating:  4.5 Stars

synopsis

“My dating life has starred cupcake men—sweet but more icing than cake and nothing that could keep my mouth busy for a more than a few minutes. Finn Callahan? He’s cake. A five-layer, lusciously frosted gateau.” – Valentina Fuentes

I’ve never met a woman I couldn’t love—for one night. I’m the bad boy, the player, the sexy heart breaker you meet in a bar and take home. And after my last hellish tour of duty as a SEAL, sun, sand, and sex are my new mission in life. Happily ever after? Pass. I’ll give you the best twelve hours of your life, and then I’m gone because why settle down when playing the field is so fun?

All that changes when I meet Valentina Fuentes. Actually, I rescue her from a ditch, which should score me major hero points. She’s even willing to admit I’m hot—and she’ll fool around with me. But convincing her that I’m anything but a sun-and-good-times boy toy? That’s mission impossible. She argues I’m the loaner car girlfriends pass around… and, sure, she’s willing to take me for a ride. A short ride. And for the first time in my life, I’d like more than a twelve-hour relationship.

When did one woman make my smooth-talking bad boy self start dreaming of forever?

headshot1_annemarshA professional technical writer, Anne discovered that getting laid off was actually A Very Good Thing. While looking for her next writing gig, she picked up her pen (well, okay, she used her writing as an excuse to buy a new Apple laptop) and started writing. She soon discovered that writing was uncomfortably similar to sit-ups: add a few more crunches each day, wake up sore, but, by God, you will fit into that bikini. Or finish the book (she’s still working on the bikini). Now she cranks out software manuals during the daylight hours– and writes about alpha shape shifters the rest of the time.

Blurb

Amelia Adams…

Just the mention of her name makes my blood pressure soar. She’s the hot as hell reporter who told the world my days as Chicago’s quarterback were over and made my fans doubt me. Who the hell does she think she is to give my throwing arm its last rites? Now the team owner wants us to do some messed up reality show together called Beauty and the Baller. During the season, I eat, sleep, and breathe football. This Beauty better not mess with my game, or this Baller is going to pull the plug on her show.

Bryce Luck…

He hates my guts. Big time. One stupid news report and I’m on his sh*t list for life. I wish I could take back my words, but I was following orders. Just like I am now. My boss wants me to produce a sports feature where I follow Bryce around 24/7, including the locker room. His blue eyes and dimpled smile make my knees weak, and I lose all perspective. I tried to fight it—my attraction and the show. Tried to say it was a bad idea. You know what they told me? A respectable reporter gets the job done. Well, Bryce isn’t the only one who knows how to dish it out. I’ll give him a taste of his own tough luck.

About My Kinda Kisses:

Life never goes as planned. Jaime Summer learned that lesson the hard way when her fiancé wreaked havoc on her carefully constructed life plan. Now, Jaime’s back in her hometown, working at her sister’s flower shop and living with her family once again, swearing off dating and men for the rest of her life. That is, until Ryan Elson walks through the door.

Ryan has been in Jupiter Bay for a year now, and has worked hard to make this new town his home. His construction business is growing and while his personal relationships with the fairer sex are lacking, he’s more content than he’s ever been. He doesn’t need a woman, but a chance meeting with Jaime has Ryan ready to pull out all the stops to have her.

Exhilarating. Intoxicating. Consuming. Ravenous. Passionate. What happens when those kisses lead towards something more? Something that looks a lot like forever.

 

*This book is intended for those 18 and over due to graphic language, descriptive sex, and the world’s most inappropriate grandparents.

EXCERPT:

“Sorry, we’re closed.”

The woman’s voice draws my attention towards the counter in back. Taking long strides, I head towards the voice, determined to buy a bouquet before she can kick me out the door I just walked through.

“I understand that, ma’am, but I’m afraid I’m in desperate need of some flowers. I promise to be quick, take whatever you have already made up, and I’ll pay in cash,” I offer as I reach the counter.

The woman, who’s still showing me her back, is cleaning the work area filled with clippings of greenery and those little white flowers they stick in bouquets for whatever purpose they serve. Her hair is pulled up in a messy knot at the back of her head, revealing the long, slender column of her neck, and for some reason, it turns me on.

My eyes peruse leisurely down the back of her body. A crisp white dress shirt hugs her perfect hourglass waist, tight blue jeans mold flawlessly to long legs, and the swell of her ass is so damn enticing. Even through her clothes, I can see the divot at the base of her spine. The mental image is like a bolt of lightning straight to my dick.

“I said we’re closed,” she says while she spins around, the last word trailing off and almost inaudible as her eyes lock on mine.

Pale green eyes the color of dewed grass slam into mine so damn hard, the impact forces me to take a retreating step. I’m struck stupid, unable to process a thought let alone communicate words, as I gape back at her. The only thing that saves me from looking like a complete ass right now is that she appears to have the same reaction.
