Obstacle: The one girl who was off-limits…
Where navy SEAL "Bad Ass" Brody Lane goes, trouble follows. Being run out of his hometown years ago for misbehaving with Genna Reilly—the sheriff's daughter—was one thing. Now Brody is about to step into real danger. Not the suggestive letters he's been exchanging with Genna, but the kind of trouble that can send a soldier home injured and broken inside…
Genna's entire life has been orchestrated by her family. The right job. The right friends. Enough! Brody's return offers the promise of lust-filled pleasures. Of flesh teased and tasted. She's not expecting to find a soldier with distant eyes who has secluded himself from the world. But this good girl knows exactly how to bring a bad boy back to life….
(Synopsis taken from Goodreads)
A SEAL's Salvation was definitely one of my favorite books that I read this month, the characters were very likable and the plot was really good. Tawny Weber does an amazing job creating the perfect bad boy/incredibly hot SEAL. I found myself unable to stop reading the book, it was intrigued and full of sizzling moments. After getting caught misbehaving with Genna Reilly, Brody Lane does the unthinkable when he has to face Genna's father. He is given the choice of joining the navy. Being known for getting in trouble, he knows that by leaving for the navy he was going to leave his family and Genna. He accepts, and leaves everything behind, but he wasn't prepared for what happened to him while in the navy. Years passed and he becomes a celebrated hero, not after suffering the consequence of being away for so long. Now he has secluded himself away from everyone else, distancing himself from those that love him. When Genna learns of his return to town, she finds herself unable to stop thinking about him and that's when she realizes just how much she wants him in her life.
Both characters in the book have a good chemistry, it's evident that they haven't forgotten each other and that's how the story unfolds. Genna has lived a life under her father's shadow and wants to try to break away from it. In contrast, Brody has been through a lot and returning to his old home brings back memories and new found obstacles that he has to face. There is some character development within the story that made the ending that much more enjoyable to read. Overall, the story was sweet and fun read, I highly recommend it.
