Olivia 'Livi' Kane has already been through one disastrous marriage and that was enough for her. Her husband had taken everything and Livi had to start over with the help of her mother. A fitness expert with her own line of exercise tapes, Livi has such a perfect body she is known as The Body Babe. But despite her public persona, she is a very shy person, and hates the tours that she is obligated to do. She longs to overcome the shyness.
Attending a Halloween party at Livi's Aunt Roz's bar, Mitch, dressed as Superman, and Livi, donning a Twinkie costume, meet and the sparks fly almost immediately. They soon find themselves pitted against each other in a push-up contest to determine who the best man/woman is. When the contest ends in a tie, it is decided that Livi owes Mitch a kiss and he owes her a date, according to the terms of the bet. Although they share a heated kiss that night, they have to wait on the date since Mitch is due to ship out on a mission. Livi's mother has always warned her about military men, so Livi keeps her involvement with Mitch a secret from her. Still, Livi cannot help wondering if she will ever see him again.
For the first time, Mitch finds himself distracted during a mission when thoughts of Livi keep intruding, to the point that even his grandfather warns him to dump her. Will he put his career first and give up the woman he loves?
With A SEAL'S SECRET, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Tawny Weber has penned another fabulously sassy, sexy contemporary romance that readers are sure to adore. I enjoyed watching the blistering passion between Mitch and Livi slowly evolve into love. They are a perfect match and the chemistry between them is explosive. The secondary characters are a delight also, adding even more humor and fun to the story.
I have read and loved every book in this series, but this one may be the best yet. Secrets, sizzling sensuality, complex characters, clever banter, tender romance and true love prevail in this unforgettable story that you won't want to miss! As a fan of Ms. Weber's work, I am always thrilled to get my hands on one of her books. Each one is a treasure.
Now that I have read Mitch and Livi's story, I cannot wait to read about Romeo, Mitch's fellow SEAL and best friend, and Tessa, who is Livi's best friend. Their story entitled A SEAL'S PLEASURE is the next book in this exciting series. The excitement is already building in A SEAL'S SECRET as Romeo and Tessa seem to be butting heads already. In the meantime, be sure to pick up your own copy of A SEAL'S SECRET. Each of the books in this series can be read as a standalone, but take heed; it is hard to stop at just one of these captivating books.
