Zane Alexander was born with a silver spoon in his mouth, but the rebellious bad boy traded it, along with his share of the family fortune, for a Navy SEAL trident and freedom from his controlling father.

Ten years later, Zane
s teammates are depending on him to secure the startup capital they need to open their security company and hes gambling on his skills at covert operations to get it. For a million dollars hell fake interest in Missy Greenwood, the Senators daughter his father wants him to date in exchange for the investment.

But when Missy is kidnapped and Zane and his team are sent to Nigeria to rescue her and the others being held, bullets as well as sparks of attraction start to fly. There
s no more faking when the danger and the emotions both turn very real in this contemporary romantic suspense from New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Cat Johnson.

 In this second book of the Hot SEALs series we follow Zane's story. He has offered to ask his rich (estranged) father to provide the one million start-up money Zane and his SEAL buddies need to open their security company GAPS (Guardian Angel Protection Services).
Zane left behind his family and controlling Dad when he was 18 to join the Navy against his fathers wishes. But now he desperately wants the money, even if it means doing whatever conditions his Dad presents him with.
Enter Missy Greenwood.
The 25 year old girl had a huge crush on Zane back when she was a little girl & teenager - she followed him around the country club like a puppy. But Zane is five years older and he never really noticed her as a female☺.
That will change now.
He has to date - and eventually marry - this beautiful rich girl. That's his Dad's condition  - do that - and you and your buddies will get your money.
But Zane asking her out comes at a very bad moment - Missy is about to leave for Nigeria. She wants to work as an englisch teacher at a school for african girls, for the nexrt three months.
Unfortunately Nigeria is not the safest place for a rich american girl to spend her time...
Zane might get his chance to meet her again sooner than he thought - but it might be not the romantic/sexy setting they both imagined....





As you might know by now I am such a huge fan of everything Navy SEAL!!!!!
Total fangirl!!!

We have this really hot SEAL Zane....
who we already fell in love with in NIGHT WITH A SEAL!

... he's such a mix of dangerous bad boy warrior and former country club rich boy ☺ adorable!
And Missy is a really great heroine too.
Most girls in books get on my nerves a lot ☺ but Missy was really great and cute and innocent and adorable but she still knows how to deal with this big, bad country club SEAL.

I really loved this story.
It had everything a good book needs...


Yes, it was a bit short - I would've loved another 200 pages - but pfff - it had everything I need in my stories.

I can't wait to read the next book about Chris who is verrry interested in his ex-team-mates' sister Darci ☺
as a short but really great Romantic Suspense!

And ass I said before - I would sooo love it if someone would make a movie/tv-show out of this series - just so we could stare and fangirl at hot SEALs all day long!!!!

Ms Johnson, you had me at Navy SEAL! 

First of all, thank you Cat Johnson for the opportunity to read an advance copy of Saved By A Seal.  Loved Night With A Seal so reading Saved By A seal was a no brainer. 

Though you don't reaaaalllly need to read Night With A SEAL to understand Zane's story, but there will be little things that will feel a bit vague for you if you don't. And as they are novella length stories, there is no reason not to!

I loved Zane from the minute we first met him in the first book.  Out of all the GAPS guys, he is the one I was drawn to the most.  And he definitely did not disappoint.

He is all alpha all the time, but there is so much behind all that.  Loved that we got the background, especially about his father.  To you George "Georgie" Zane Alexander II, I say

Ugh, I really didn't like him at all, with all his social climbing and just plain horribleness.  I could completely understand Zane's actions over the past decade because of him.  You would think that people would get better, but nope, he was the same old jerk he was back then.

I completely and utterly adored our heroine, Missy.  She has had a crazy crush on Zane since forever and I love how she is around him.  Come on, we have all run into our teenage crush years down the track and wondered "if only".

Well, there is no wondering with Zane and Missy.  While the circumstances of their getting together leave a little to be desired, the attraction between these two is there right from the start.

I loved how Zane could switch between bad ass, protective SEAL to the country club lifestyle of both their parents.

What I love the most about this series is watching these tough guys get knocked to their arses by these women.  Missy is so much more than you at first expect her to be.  She is tough as nail and gives as good as she gets.

I know in novella length book, the story can often end up lacking.  Either the story is too rushed, or you feel like you have missed half of it.

But this is not the case with Hot SEALS.  The storylines are well paced and thorough with what we learn about each guy and girl. You do not feel that you are missing entire chapters of the characters lives or that the story jumps.  The only thing wrong with them is that they are too short, and I want more!

Now hurry up and give me more!!

KISSED BY A SEAL will be book #3
It will be Chris's story!!!! ☺☺☺

Since Zane, the bad boy SEAL she formerly had a crush on, fell in love with someone else and her best friend Ali found her own happy ending Darci’s feeling her single status extra keenly. Though she suspects her brother’s buddy Chris would be willing to change her status . . . if she decides to let him.
When a routine assignment turns deadly and Chris switches from charming joker to capable trained warrior willing to kill or die to save Darci’s life, she might have to reevaluate her feelings about the perpetual bachelor and her own future.
