Review: The Navy Seal's Promise

The Navy Seal's Promise
My Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
Purchase: Amazon

Synopsis: With only 48 hours back on home soil for Christmas, United States Army Corporal Saskia Cullen is desperate to spend every minute with her young son. So when heavy snowfall closes JFK airport and she misses her connecting flight, she’s devastated. Until Navy SEAL Luke Gray offers to keep her company… and then personally finds a way to get her home.

Luke is back in the US on leave, waiting to hear the details of his next mission, and Saskia proves to be a pleasant distraction. And when he hears that she needs to get home to see her son, he’s prepared to do anything to help the sexy single mom. Trouble is, he hadn’t planned on falling for anyone, let alone a beautiful soldier about to return overseas.

"Her saviour. Her knight on a white horse somehow promising to get her where she needed to be."

This book just screams sweetness! I expected a bit more hard ass characters in this since they were in military, but no. Saskia is so feminine and cute, while Luke seems like a man-next-door/knight-in-shining-armor kind of guy. I can easily forget them being in the military and get lost in the story.

A chance meeting that turned into something. I love the fast-paced plot that didn't gave room for drama or conflict. Well other than their schedules, but you know what I mean. The author made such lovable characters that I wish we had the chance to get to know more.

I really wish this was longer. There were parts I'd really want to discover and I wish there was enough space/time to see these nice characters develop. Also, I want to have more scenes with Jack. The lines were just perfect—not cheesy but not boring. I also love how the love scene was written. It wasn't just sex. It was sensual and intimate. And although it was too soon to call their affections for each other, love, it seems like it was present in that scene.

For the second time, Lane did an awesome job in make us fall in love with her story and characters. This is a story about family, promises and finding love when you least expect it.

  1. This sounds so sweet, Charlie. I like that it portray more than just sex, because sex without emotion really holds none of my interest. Wonderful review. :)
