Early Review: A seal at heart – Anne Elizabeth

Being a SEAL means everything to Petty Officer First Class John Roaker. So when a head injury coupled with a bout of amnesia makes him undeployable, he has to find a way to heal from his wounds and recover his lost memories. Enlisting the help of beautiful psychoanalyst Laurie Smith, he discovers his unlocked memories hold a dangerous secret about his last mission that threatens his life, his country, and the woman he’s starting to fall in love with.
My thoughts:
Lots of seals running around these days, but when they are in they are in. In this one we have a wounded soldier, messed up in body and spirit. And a heroine who will save him.
John is as I already told you not as happy seal. He suffers from amnesia after a tour into hell. He is tough, but not really the commitment kind of guy. Laurie is sweet, nice, and knows better than to date a seal. Also she have a very protective dad. Trouble alert.
The story was light (in the way it read, not in what was in it), cute and fast to read. But to be honest I was not a fan of the sex scenes, it felt a bit…like a man had written them. Their first encounter and I was like wow, wait a moment, ask first mister. About what, ok I will not tell you that. Just read and see. Anyway, they did not feel sexy. But it all had a silly vibe over it, drama alerts and lots of soldier nicknames. But as it read so easily and there was romance I did not care. It was a little escapism book. 

Conclusion:
Seals, romance, action, hidden memories and drama.

Eh, not a fan of the guy

    "I know that the spades are the swords of a soldier. I know that the clubs are weapons of war. I know that diamonds mean money for this art but that's not the shape of my heart."Whatever. Not for me.

    Not sure if this is one I would read or not. Every time I think of a soldier I think of my son and nephew…not a good combo with the romance πŸ˜‰

    Yeah, not the biggest fan of the cover — he looks really young and immature. I like 'em a little more weathered and less blonde. You're right about a lot of Seals running around. Definitely a hot subject (of course, Seals are pretty darned hot on their own).
