Wedding planner Felicia Bradford is in trouble. Mercenaries are holding her sister hostage and threatening to kill her unless Felicia helps them steal top secret information from the Navy’s Special Operations Headquarters. Having no other way to access the base, she pulls a gun on the first man in a Navy uniform she finds, demanding he get her through the gate.
Navy SEAL Logan Dunn just got back from a mission in Syria and is looking for a little down time to relax. That plan goes out the window when a beautiful woman shoves a gun in his back and begs him to do something she clearly doesn’t want to do. Logan does what any Navy SEAL would do in the same situation—he saves the girl and takes out the bad guys.
But their actions that day kick off a crazy chain of events, including a fast-burning whirlwind romance, an out-of-control sister, an insane covert plot involving a defecting Russian pilot, a mercenary bent on revenge, and a sunrise wedding for a bride who never wakes up before noon.
Getting through her sister’s kidnapping will look like a piece of cake compared to what comes next.
I’m going to keep this review short because having read this story the day before writing this review, I honestly can’t remember much about it. STRONG SILENT SEAL is told in dual POVs and while it’s part of a series, it can be read as a stand-alone. That being said, this book does mention the previous couple and the events that took place in that story (one of which is still ongoing), so if you haven’t read the previous book, you’ll have no idea what’s going on. This is a novella and I have to say that the story moves fast…very fast. It’s also an insta-love and I found the plot to be fairly predictable. It does come with a HEA, but the ending sneaks up on you; I was surprised when I suddenly realised the story had reached its conclusion. Overall, it wasn’t a bad read but it wasn’t as good as I was hoping it would be.
“If I’d known all I had to do to get a homemade meal like this was to save a woman from Russian kidnappers, I would have done it a long time ago.”
