Losing a brother in arms is only the beginning.
When one of their own is tragically killed in an ambush, the Navy investigates Scott Devonshire and his elite team of SEALs. In order to prove their innocence, he’ll have to track down their fallen comrade’s widow and uncover the secrets she’s hiding. There’s just one problem—she’s nowhere to be found.
Meanwhile, brilliant hacker Hayley Stevens is digging up dirt on the unit in hopes of snagging a promotion, but she has her doubts about the SEAL team’s guilt. When she reluctantly teams up with Scott to prove he and his comrades had nothing to do with their friend’s death, she doesn’t expect romance. But the sparks that fly between them have Scott contemplating setting aside his womanizing ways.
When Hayley is captured by an unknown adversary, Scott has to make a decision about where his loyalties lie: Hayley, or his team? Whichever side he chooses, he’ll be embroiled in a conflict could potentially take down everyone he cares about—in a scandal that goes all the way to the top.

Another SEAL book? Yep, I have an addiction I think! Hacking the SEAL is book 2 and you really need to read them in order to understand the big picture. There is a mystery that continues from book 1 to book 2 (and into the yet to be released book 3) that you need to understand. Anyway, each book focuses on a different couple as the SEAL team tries to solve the mystery. Hacking the SEAL centers on one of the SEALs and a girl who works for the FBI as a computer guru. The characters are a bit flat. The plot itself is okay, but not great. I read a LOT of books in the genre so I have pretty high expectations. While this isn’t the worst SEAL book I have read, its not the best either. Overall, its just okay.

It is pretty short. Honestly, book 1 and book 2 together are maybe 300 pages so you can read them quickly. If you love SEAL books and are waiting for your favorite author to release another book, this might be an okay read to fill the wait.

About Leslie North

Leslie North is the pen name for a critically-acclaimed author of women's contemporary romance and fiction. The anonymity gives her the perfect opportunity to paint with her full artistic palette, especially in the romance and erotic fantasy genres.

The truth of the matter is she loves her fictional persona, Leslie North, more than her normal, day-to-day persona! Her bestselling books focus on strong characters and particularly women who aren't afraid to challenge an alpha male. Inspired after years of travel, her stories are set all over the world, from the tough streets of Russia to the beautiful beaches of the middle east.

Leslie fell in love with romance when she first picked up a scrappy, dog-eared romance book from her local library. She began writing soon after and the rest, as they say, was history. She now lives in a cozy cottage on the British coast and enjoys taking long walks with her two Dalmatians, George and Fergie.
