First in a thrilling romantic suspense series featuring a band of do-or-die Navy SEALs in Texas
A SEAL is ready for anything...except losing his heart...
Lieutenant Amador "Stryker" Salas and his tight-knit Navy SEAL team are undercover on a Texas ranch and tasked with covert ops across the border. It's an assignment that requires all their skills, all their secrets, and all their know-how.
Anya Gutierrez, the local veterinarian, has been serving the ranch for years. She loves the animals and ranching life, and Stryker finds her a breath of fresh air in his otherwise rigidly disciplined existence.
When Anya gets caught in the crosshairs of a mission gone sideways, Stryker must tell her the truth about who he really is, risking everything to keep her out of harm's way, even if it destroys him...
Some times you read a book that just doesn’t work for you. A SEAL Never Quits was that book for me. I made it 25% in before I threw in the towel. Here are a few reasons why this didn’t work for me:
- The hero and heroine were totally flat. They felt so static to me I couldn’t get into their story at all.
- The plot is….well, its a bit of a stretch even for me and I read PNR. So this group of SEALs go undercover on a cattle ranch in Texas to figure out what a cartel might or might not be doing. They stick out like sore thumbs and someone is snooping around by the 20% mark because its so obvious.
Maybe it makes more sense later on? I just couldn’t stick with it any more. And I love books about military heroes. And the heroine was a veterinarian which is super awesome. Finally, this is a new to me author; maybe I need to try some of her other stuff?
- POV: 3rd
- Tears: no
- Trope: secret identity, military
Great review. sorry this one didn’t work out, but hopeful the next read will be better.
I give a book 25%- 30% before throw’n in the towel. It could be sooner if things really aren’t working out, but that’s a good spot to know if it’s going to work.
Yeah, I tried because it sounded good, but it just wasn’t working for me at all!
I love SEAL stories so I’m sorry it didn’t work for you. But that’s part of our lives, trying new things and we are lucky so many do work.
