review || A SEAL'S TEMPTATION { review } by Tawny Weber

HQN: Blaze | {digital} September 1, 2015 | Military Romance
Uniformly Hot, book 9


Subject: Navy SEAL Shane "Scavenger" O'Brian

Mission: Seduce and satisfy Lark Sommers!

Lark Sommers's dry spell is officially a sex-starved desert. Since taking over her mom's quirky coffee shop in Nowhere, Idaho—putting her own career on permanent hold—Lark's been, well, miserable. But her friends have a plan…one that starts with a superhot guy with a rockin' hard bod.

US Navy SEAL Shane O'Brian has no clue he's being set up. All he knows is that Lark does incredible things to his libido. Still, Shane can't quite bring himself to tell her what he does for a living. After all, their risqué business is temporary—no strings, no falling in love.

Especially when there's no way this SEAL would ever be tempted into anything more than a sexy little fling…

Oh, my.

He was gorgeous.

Wasn’t he gorgeous?

She thought so, but the room had taken a nice, slow spin so which she was sure accounted for the sudden dizziness filling her head and the odd tightness in her belly. Resting her hand on the doorframe, Lark blinked a couple of times so she could see him more clearly.

And oh, boy, was she glad she did.

Because she’d been right. He was gorgeous. Sara had been right, he definitely had a little Greek god in there somewhere.

Tall, close to a foot over her own five-four, he a swimmer’s build. Broad shoulders, a slender waist and long, long legs. The kind of body that would look might sweet naked but for a gleaming coat of oil.

His dark brown hair was cut super short, the top spiked in a way that looked like he’d ran his hands through it’s thickness while it was wet and left it at that. Unlike Sara’s round sweetness, her brother’s face was narrow, with slashing brows and a full mouth.

Oh, that mouth. Those lips. Mmm. Lark wet her lips while imagining doing the same to his. She was pretty sure she could spend hours nibbling on that bottom lip of his and still not be satisfied.

She’d bet if he were doing the nibbling, her satisfaction would be guaranteed. She didn’t know if it was all the talk of sex today, or if he was simply the most desirable man she’d ever seen in her life. Either or both got credit for the images flooding her mind.

The two of them, naked. Oh yeah, she’d bet he was even better naked. Long, lean and luscious, he’d know what to do with his body. Better yet, he’d know what to do with hers. She’d bet he could do things she’d only read about in those sexy romance novels.

Whenever I see Tawny's name, I know that the book is going to be some sort of excellent SEAL story. Honestly, I think that first Harlequin books that I noticed with SEALs as the main lead male were penned by Tawny Weber. Now, I'm a huge military-romance fan and I have a decent little list of my favorite authors in the category -- and sadly? Tawny hadn't made it yet.

By no fault of hers, of course. The fault was all on me -- her covers are to die for; they draw you in. The synopsis on each book is always intriguing... It was just whenever I had "spare change" for a book in my grocery budget (because that's where my book budget is), there was usually another book that had been on my must-read list. I'm going to take the author I know before the author I don't know...

Well, I now know Tawny and I can now put her SEAL romances toward the top of my lists.

Lark was such a fun female character to get to know. She has her hang-ups and her quirks, but under it all, she was an insanely likable character -- I wouldn't mind being her friend. She's strong, honest, independent, and incredibly talented.

Equally, I loved Shane's character. I like my military men, and I love it when they fall for the little intricacies of the women they fall for. Shane learned Lark's ins and outs, and he worked with them. He learned her fears, and he found ways to work with them. He learned her joys, and he found ways to make them grander. I thoroughly enjoyed reading Shane and his ways -- even more so because while he had his alpha tendencies, he as quite the quiet guy. Definitely a lovable teddy bear in a SEALs clothes.

Like I said -- Tawny Weber has now made my must-read list. I cannot wait to go back and read the previous eight stories in this UNIFORMLY HOT series.
