"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"--Page 4 of cover.… (mais)

A SEAL's Salvation
4.5 Stars

Run out of town as a teen for “misbehaving” with the sheriff’s daughter, Brody Lane found a home with the Navy SEALs. Injured and suffering from PTSD, Brody returns home with the same bad boy reputation and the same sizzling hot attraction for Genna Reilly. Only now, they aren’t kids anymore…

The books in this series have everything going for them - intense, alpha heroes, spitfire heroines, small town charm and steamy romance.

Brody and Genna are wonderful both as a couple and as individuals. He is the boy from the wrong side of town just biding his time before leaving, but when he comes face to face with the temptation that Genna poses, he simply can’t resist. Later, his pain and loss of faith following the death of a teammate is heartwrenching and it is a sign of his strength and resilience, as well as Genna’s love, that he is able to overcome it.

Genna is the quintessential “good girl” who never puts a foot out of line until she meets the one boy she cannot have and then all bets are off. She is a truly lovely and caring person, and it is great seeing her growing in confidence and standing up for herself against her overbearing father.

Their opposites attract relationship begins with a sweaty, steamy encounter and none of the years that pass diminishes their chemistry one iota.

All in all, the simple yet captivating story and the familiar yet memorable characters make this an excellent read. Looking forward to the next yummy SEAL in the series. ( )

Seventeen year old Genna had a raging crush on her brother's friend, bad boy Brody Lane. On a dare, she intended to seduce Brody and get a kiss for her efforts. She got more than she bargained for, but the moment was swiftly ruined when her father, the sheriff of Bedford, caught them together. By the time she'd completed her time on house arrest, Brody had left town and joined the Navy. Fast forward ten years later, Genna hasn't had any luck in her dating life, her brother died, her parents still had her under their thumbs and she never forgot about the one that got away.

Brody made something of himself by joining the Navy and becoming a SEAL. Then, out of the blue, he received a letter from Genna telling him about her brother's passing. Genna was not only shocked to have received a reply, but more so by the content of Brody's letter.

The story started of sweetly with the sheriff's daughter and the small town's bad boy making a connection only to be torn apart by an irate and over-protective father. With that lead in to the story, I was supposed to believe that her first kiss and rounding second base with Brody had left such an impact on her that she hadn't forgotten it in ten years. The boyfriends or dates that had come after could never compare to those few minutes of bliss. Anything is possible, so I'll give her the benefit of the doubt.

I had a bit of difficulty getting into this story because of the cliched small town mentality which was laid on very thick throughout the story. Usually I enjoy small town romances because of the sense of community and the humor that can ensue from meddling residents, but Bedford was far from idyllic. Even after ten years, the town hadn't given up on stigmas or gossip. After everything Brody had done, the sheriff was still a thorn in his side, Genna's best friend was quick to put Brody down as the loser bad-boy, and the mayor who was salivating at the mouth to have a huge parade and press coverage for the hometown hero were the icing on the cake. Then there was Genna, the girl who tried so hard to be perfect for her parents to ease the pain and guilt over her brother's shortcomings, which had eventually killed him, that she allowed herself to be manipulated every which way and have her life dictated to her.

As a couple, their first reunion got off to a rocky start which he tried to smoothe over by suggesting they become friends and get to know one another. From there, it was thanks to him that Genna realized she needed to stand up for herself and make changes if she ever wanted to be happy. I had to wonder if she would have continued to bemoan the trajectory her life and done something about it had Brody not returned to shake things up. She did redeem herself towards the end which showed she'd finally done some growing up, and it was finally her turn to save Brody from himself.

For me, it was an okay story. The simple plot line and rather bland characters don't make this a memorable story, but if you love military romances with friends to lovers and second chances tropes, then you'll probably like this.

Originally published on Tales to Tide You Over

Between the opening scene and the author note of this book, I was a little thrown until I realized the story had its roots in events from ten years early when Genna and Brody were both teenagers, though she was still jailbait as Brody puts it, rather than the book being about a Seal and a teenager. That was my last hiccup in reading this novel though.

Genna and Brody are perfect examples of how to make characters spring to life with real issues from the start. The glimpse into their teenage past shows how assumptions can blind people to value, and how some use their positions of authority to bully. In this case, Genna’s father, as Sheriff, gives Brody a choice between jail and the Navy when he shows interest in Genna. He’d committed no actionable crime and his reputation as a teenage troublemaker is founded on acts that would have been excused in a wealthy kid, as they were in Genna’s brother. That kind of experience, especially on top of an abusive, alcoholic father, can have an impact on a person. Brody’s value is shown in how he comes to appreciate what Genna’s father did because the Navy gave him purpose rather than clinging to the unjust aspects. The Seal qualities emphasized in the story are the important ones: purpose, the team, and drive rather than the adrenaline junkie side that does not leave much hope for the future.

Genna takes a little more time to realize she doesn’t have to be the counterbalance for her brother’s failings, a lesson she learns only when a double tragedy brings Brody back into her life. She suffers under an overprotective dad, yes, but it’s also a situation of her own making because she does little to assert herself, taking the road least likely to create conflict. She’s put her life, ambitions, and dreams on hold, succumbing to parental pressure and guilt, but when Brody starts treating her unjustly, she assesses her life and finds it wanting. Rather than letting that fact overwhelm her, she starts taking action and proves herself more than capable.

In many ways, that night ten years before had been a turning point for both of them, Brody to getting his life in order and ensuring he would not become his father, and Genna in cementing her loss of agency in favor of her parents’ needs. This allows both of them a growing point that Weber capitalizes on to offer a complex read where Genna must finally take a stand and Brody needs to as well, though in his case what he stands against is perception rather than pressure.

The Blaze imprint is on the sensual side, and this book doesn’t fall down there either. Even better, the lust-filled encounters serve to illustrate Genna and Brody’s troubled relationship while it reveals more than either is ready for.

My first thought when finishing this powerful and compelling read was simply: “Wow.” This novel illustrates just how one can stay within the genre and still deliver a deep, intriguing, complicated story with bigger implications about the assumptions people make based on class and how easy it is to blame an outsider rather than trying to figure out what’s really going on. And that’s not even touching on the post-traumatic syndrome Brody suffers thanks to the events that send him back to the one place he never wanted to return to. Well worth the read.

P.S. I received this title from the publisher through NetGalley in return for an honest review. ( )

Very good book. Brody was the bad boy, son of the local drunk. Genna was the seventeen year old daughter of the sheriff, with a huge crush on Brody. One night she took a dare to corner him and kiss him. Just as things were getting interesting they were caught by her father. Brody was given the choice of joining the military or being arrested. Being a smart guy he left town and joined the navy.

Ten years later, Brody is a navy SEAL who hasn't seen Genna since that night. When he receives a letter from her, telling him about her brother's death, he writes back, beginning an exchange of steamy letters. When he gets injured during a mission, his grandmother brings him back to his hometown to heal and try to escape the memories of that mission. He doesn't expect to be faced with Genna almost as soon as he gets there.

Genna has been paying for that one kiss for ten years. Thanks to her brother's out of control behavior her parents became even more overprotective. She's been stuck in her hometown, doing the job her father got her, dating the men they approved of, and never making any waves. When Brody comes back to town she figures it's her chance to live a little.

I loved the two of them together. Genna has always had some sass to her personality, but it's been buried under her efforts to please her parents. It really comes out when she faces down Brody the first time she sees him after he comes back. She doesn't let him get away with hiding out. Brody has always had the bad boy reputation, but under all that attitude is a pretty sensitive guy. The loss of his friend during the mission has caused a loss of confidence in his abilities to protect the rest of his team. He is ready to turn his back on the job that he loves because he feels he isn't capable any longer. The chemistry between Brody and Genna is sizzling, but Brody is determined to resist. I loved seeing the way they settled for friendship at first, giving them a chance to actually get to know each other, before Genna gives in to her attraction and seduces him.

I loved the growth that both characters went through. Just having her hero back in town gives Genna the self confidence to finally stand up to her parents and go after the life she wants. I loved seeing the way that she takes her stress-coping mechanism of baking and turns it into the career she can love. I liked the way that she made her plans with the options that were most flexible for the life she wanted to have. I loved seeing her with Brody's friends who visited and asked her help with Brody. It opened her eyes to more of who Brody is beneath the bad boy exterior. Meanwhile, Brody has had to deal with healing his physical injuries, but also to come to terms with the loss of his friend. He tries leaving the job he loves behind, but his sense of loss gets even worse. It is a conversation with Genna's dad that actually brings him the peace he's been looking for, and is reinforced by Genna in an act that shows just how well she's come to know him. ( )

3rd book in the uniformly hot series and Tawny has kept the heat going. Many authors loose the steam as they put out each new book in a series but Tawny doesn't disappoint. I love how the local bad ass grew up and became the hard hitting Navy SEAL. When a member of his team is kia, he goes home to recuperate and come to grips with his life. The home town girl who has loved him all her life is there ready to help him pick up the pieces. Their love shines through the story, but will Brody get his head on straight and return to the Navy or wallow in self pity and follow a down ward spiral? ( )
