Publisher’s Description:  A Second Chance Romance

The only easy day was yesterday, and no one knows that better than Lieutenant Commander Silas Branson.

He may have taken several kicks to the gut but once a Seal always a Seal. He’s never backed down from a hard fight and he doesn’t intend to start now.

Silas lost the love of his life years ago but now he’s back to fight for what’s his.

Maggie was his woman. Despite their difficult past, as far as he is concerned, she is still his woman.

When her life is threatened he moves heaven and hell to protect her and the future he knows they can build together.

Don’t miss the Bone Frog Command’s origin story, the kick-off title to the Silver SEALs series, featuring standalone titles by the Suspense Sisters – Becky McGraw, Donna Michaels, Sharon Hamilton, Geri Foster, Kris Michaels, Abbie Zanders, Trish Loye, Caitlyn O’Leary, KaLyn Cooper, Maryann Jordan, Desiree Holt, J.M. Madden.

Nervous Nellie’s nervousness necessitates knowledge of the novel. In other words …SPOILERS. *BEWARE*


Nervous Nellie says…

The sirens, the smoke, the screams…Dante himself could have written the scene playing out in front of Silas when they arrived on the outskirts of the area that had been hit the hardest.

 

Wow. This is NOT a sweet (a romance that has no dark tendencies) romance. As the quote above reveals a trip to the “front lines” for our hero, if sweet is what you want, you might not choose this book.  However, I’m not always keen on sweet romances tending to lean more toward the more dark and realistic.

This is a short book, 150 pages. It was a nice afternoon read and it felt like a complete novel.  I didn’t feel slighted or feel like I missed out on key scenes.  Neither hero or heroine made a fool out of themselves.  There are sex scenes, but between husband and wife. There was grief involved in their story, but only enough revealed to be sure it was understood where the character’s feelings were coming from.  Of course there is a HEA, but I wouldn’t be reading it if there wasn’t.

I most likely would not have caught this series if it weren’t for Kris Michaels.  She is one of my favorite authors and is writing for this series.  What ever should I do while waiting for her book in the series to be released? Read the others of course!!  Here is the complete list of the series and release dates.
