A SEAL’s Temptation
Uniformly Hot SEALs #9
By: Tawny Weber
Releasing August 18, 2015 (Print) and September 1st, 2015 (Digital)
Harlequin Blaze


Subject: Navy SEAL Shane "Scavenger" O'Brian

Mission: Seduce and satisfy Lark Sommers!

Lark Sommers's dry spell is officially a sex-starved desert. Since taking over her mom's quirky coffee shop in Nowhere, Idaho—putting her own career on permanent hold—Lark's been, well, miserable. But her friends have a plan…one that starts with a superhot guy with a rockin' hard bod.

US Navy SEAL Shane O'Brian has no clue he's being set up. All he knows is that Lark does incredible things to his libido. Still, Shane can't quite bring himself to tell her what he does for a living. After all, their risqué business is temporary—no strings, no falling in love.

Especially when there's no way this SEAL would ever be tempted into anything more than a sexy little fling…

My Thoughts:
I had a fun time reading A SEAL's Temptation. First off, we have Sara deciding that her friend, Lark need to end her dry spell. I mean 17 months, 11 days, and 9 hours is a bit long for not having any bed fun. Who better than to get her brother, a HOT Navy SEAL to solve Lark's problem. She just happen to have a birthday coming up to convince him to come out. Sounds all logical. That description just makes the story sound so much fun. 

I was laughing out loud as I read this story. Oh my goodness, it was hilarious. We have Shane who doesn't want to go home, but his sister asked so nicely. It's hard for him to be home, because his mother. Bless her heart. She has a hard time with Shane being a SEAL that she has convinced herself that he's a traveling salesman, and her daughters have let her do this. WHAT! Dude, that's pretty jacked up. It's a huge deal that he's a SEAL. However, we get an understanding why he's "traveling salesman" not that it makes sense, but it helps his mother cope. At same time it causes strain on their relationship. Moving on from Shane's family trouble. What made laugh out loud was when Lark meets Shane and word vomit starts flowing. An example:
"If you liked the muffins, you'll have to try our sugar cookies. Everyone loves the. They're soft and sweet, but everyone says they get a guy hard and horny."
Lark didn't realize she said anything like that until she looked at friend's face. Priceless. We have little things like that in the story that makes this so fun. There is more to this book than the sex deprive Lark and having fun with Shane. Both of them have deal with personal issues. For instances, Shane doesn't believe that a girl is going to want to be with him, because he's a SEAL. What I mean is they aren't going to handle some of his assignment. Truthfully, it's not easy being with a military guy and it certainly takes a special kind of person to deal with all that it entails. Lark is still dealing with her mother's death and hasn't fully overcome her guilty. This causes a little strain on their relationship. Another factor is Lark believes that the thing between Shane and her is only for fun. 

Overall, A SEAL's Temptation is a fun read. I enjoyed the story between Lark and Shane. This left me with a smile on my face. 

Excerpt from A SEAL's Temptation: 

Oh, my.
He was gorgeous. 
            Wasn’t he gorgeous? 
            She thought so, but the room had taken a nice, slow spin so which she was sure accounted for the sudden dizziness filling her head and the odd tightness in her belly.  Resting her hand on the doorframe, Lark blinked a couple of times so she could see him more clearly.
            And oh, boy, was she glad she did.
Because she’d been right.  He was gorgeous. Sara had been right, he definitely had a little Greek god in there somewhere. 
            Tall, close to a foot over her own five-four, he a swimmer’s build.  Broad shoulders, a slender waist and long, long legs.  The kind of body that would look might sweet naked but for a gleaming coat of oil. 
His dark brown hair was cut super short, the top spiked in a way that looked like he’d ran his hands through it’s thickness while it was wet and left it at that.  Unlike Sara’s round sweetness, her brother’s face was narrow, with slashing brows and a full mouth. 
Oh, that mouth.  Those lips.  Mmm.  Lark wet her lips while imagining doing the same to his.  She was pretty sure she could spend hours nibbling on that bottom lip of his and still not be satisfied. 
            She’d bet if he were doing the nibbling, her satisfaction would be guaranteed.  She didn’t know if it was all the talk of sex today, or if he was simply the most desirable man she’d ever seen in her life.  Either or both got credit for the images flooding her mind.
            The two of them, naked.  Oh yeah, she’d bet he was even better naked.  Long, lean and luscious, he’d know what to do with his body.  Better yet, he’d know what to do with hers. She’d bet he could do things she’d only read about in those sexy romance novels.
