ARC Review: A Seal at Heart [Mass Market Paperback]



I've finished "A Seal at Heart" by Ann Elizabeth.

Product Description

He Lost Just About Everything On That Mission ....

Being a Navy SEAL means everything to John "Red Jack" Roaker, but a mission gone wrong has left his buddy dead, his memory spotty, and his world turned upside down. His career as a SEAL is threatened unless Dr. Laurie Smith's unconventional methods of therapy can help him.

Maybe She Can Show Him How to Get it Back ...

Laurie's father was a SEAL — and she knows exactly what the personal cost can be. She can't resist trying everything to help this man, and not only because she finds him as sexy as he is honorable.

As the layers of Jack's resistance peel away, he and Laurie unearth secrets that go to the highest levels of the military — and the deepest depths of their hearts.

My Review:

Navy Seal John Roaker aka "Red Jack" has survived a mission gone bad which has left him with amnesia and his best friend and swim partner dead.  Dr. Laurie Smith is the only one that can help him regain his memories by using gentle and unconventional methods.  He is wary of therapists and is hurt and confused by his former teammates since they won't communicate with him.  Soon the relationship turns personal.

Dr. Laurie Smith is a "Seal Pup" and she is wary about getting involved with a Seal because her dad was a drunken Seal who took off one day and never came back.  Jack knows it's unwise to get involved with a "Seal Pup" especially one that is adopted by his CO Gich.

As Jack regains is memories and heals with Laurie's gentle touch he realizes his team was set up to extract something the CIA lost.

Laurie was a strong heroine who could hold her own against an alpha male.  I liked her methods to heal and calm Jack but I thought the sexual relationship happened too fast.  I thought it was kind of strange the first time that Jack went to see Laurie for the first time he stripped naked!

4/5

Thanks Sourcebooks for sending me this ARC to review, greatly appreciated!
