Hello to all!

                     I hope the weather is being kind for all of you ( not too hot , not too cold, just right) because here it's not the case... i'm melting which is why i'm late to post because really  it's too much even for electronic.
 Now, in the USA it's the the celebration of their independance so big party  , barbecue etc ... for that reason i decided to review a military romance to change from the paranormal and urban fantasy a little^^ that way it fit the calendar too.
It's a new author to me and let me tell you i won't stop there, it was fabulous! However i will let you see that in more detail so without more delay here is my opinion on Seal of Honor by Tonya Burrows

Short description from goodreads :

 It’s a good thing Gabe Bristow lives and breathes the Navy SEAL credo, “the only easy day was yesterday,” because today, his life is unrecognizable. When his prestigious career comes to a crashing halt, he’s left with a bum leg and few prospects for employment that don’t include a desk.

That is, until he’s offered the chance to command a private hostage rescue team and free a wealthy American businessman from Colombian paramilitary rebels. It seems like a good deal—until he meets his new team: a drunk Cajun linguist, a boy-genius CIA threat analyst, an FBI negotiator with mob ties, a cowboy medic, and an EOD expert as volatile as the bombs he defuses. Oh, and who could forget the sexy, frustratingly impulsive Audrey Van Amee? She’s determined to help rescue her brother—or drive Gabe crazy. Whichever comes first.

As the death toll rises, Gabe’s team of delinquents must figure out how to work together long enough to save the day. Or, at least, not get themselves killed. Because Gabe’s finally found something worth living for, and God help him if he can’t bring her brother back alive.

My opinion:
          Addictive and page turner story! I ‘ve read this one in one sitting despite an overbearing heat outside i was so immersed in the story and enjoying the characters that i couldn’t stop reading. Tonya Burrows created a bunch of operatives really too good they each have a troubled past, one way or another, and had to leave the official service . But those alpha men can’t stay behind a desk they live on the field so when they get the opportunity to join a special private team specialised in rescuing hostage they all want to be part of it.

They are a bunch of good guys but with some attitude trouble and fire is sparking between them which leads to very humourous exchanges i was smiling and laughing as much as biting my nails or wanting to cry at some parts. Really that’s that excellent. I’m not sure which guy is my favourite either but i do have a soft spot for Harvard and Quinn had me tearing up.

 Oh i did love the main couple of this story Gabe is a leader born and it was funny to see the big seal warrior loose his cool because of a small feisty woman. Gabe is really a man of honor and he is loyal to a fault bgut at the same time i wanted to punch him when he was so irresponsible sometimes. Audrey is an independent girl, determined to save her brother she not only speak of it she acts as she can. When she meet the team sent to save him she decide to join, refusing to be send packing home safely... i’m sure she wasn’t expecting all she will be confronted to but she does stay herself and i loved how she was able to center Gabe as much as pushing his buttons. They are the perfect couple, balanced where each one can take the other on when needed and let’s be honest thos big alpha men need someone to put them at their place from time to time.

 The pace, the level of action vs romance all   in this story was perfect for me and i can’t wait to read more of the team as they start to learn to work together ( and let say that book 3 being about Quinn i can’t wait reach that one). If you love military romance and romance suspense this oen is a must read

Score:  5/5
