5 Stars

As a SEAL, Jon Rudnick dodged copper and lead without flinching, but just the thought of one tiny gold band around his ring finger sends him into a cold sweat. Love is one thing, but marriage is another. He’s not sure he’s ready for that just yet. . . until a near miss serves as a wake-up call he can’t ignore. Now he’s ready, but his girlfriend Ali has gone from rushing him toward the altar, to running in the opposite direction at full speed. Hell if Jon can figure out why, but he knows one thing. All’s fair in love and war and he’s not going to rest until he makes Ali his again. This time for good.

 We all remember Ali and Jon from the very first #HotSEALs book NIGHT WITH A SEAL - they were supposed to already live their happily ever after.
But Ali is still waiting for that proposal. And Jon is a bit scared to put a ring on Ali's finger. He knows the next months will be very hard. He won't be home and he doesn't know if he'll even be alive after what he has to do. He's infiltrating a terrorist group - all by himself. None of his SEAL buddies know about his mission. And of course Ali doesn't know either. She'll never know what happend to him - should anything happen.


I'm not telling you that of course ☺


I really loved this story!!

Grrrrr - all those sexy SEALs!! We're huge SEAL fans here at BJ's Book Blog ☺

And this 9th SEAL book was just as good as the others.
Lots of very suspensy & SEALy moments and frustrating moments and of course there's lots of romance thrown in too. Jon has to romance himself back into Ali's heart after all. ☺
I wanted to slap him a few times here and there - leaving poor Ali alone all the time to go and try to save the world! Men!

Great, quick Romantic Suspense read!

ROMANCED BY A SEAL was a very suspensy SEAL romance! Will Ali finally get her Happily Ever After with Jon??? Run to your nearest amazon to find out!

Okeydokey - ready for the next hot SEAL now ☺☺☺

Woohoo, more hot SEALs in my inbox (hmm that sounds a bit suss!!) - let me at them!

I adore the Hot SEALs series, so whenever I get more to read it puts me in a happy place.

And getting more of one our my beloved SEALs - even better!

Romanced By A SEAL had a completely different feel to the other books in the series.  Yes, it had Jon and his Ali, but this time there was so much more to their story than just the romance.

Sure, there was romance (look at the title!) but this time there was more SEALy stuff in the story.

In fact, after about the first 25% I was thinking who is this man and what has Ms Johnson done with Jon?  This showed us the SEAL side of the man more than the devoted boyfriend.

And I liked it.

Did I want to slap Jon for being a bit of a jerk - hell yeah.  But could I see why he was the way he was.  Sure thing.

I loved that we got more of Jon and Ali's family and friends, the banter and the snark between them all.

And now I have finished and am wanting more.  Please don't make us wait too long Ms Johnson!


and if you haven't read the story about how Ali met Jon... READ IT NOW - before reading this one ↑☺

A team of sexy SEALs, a terrorist threat, and an attraction that can’t be denied...Ten years of dedication to the Navy taught SEAL Jon Rudnick one thing—he’s not afraid to risk life and limb for his country. But when navigating military red tape begins to present more challenges than the enemy it makes Jon question his future. So does Alison Cressly, the woman who doesn’t do one-night stands or SEALs but who broke both rules with Jon the eve of his deployment to Afghanistan. He can’t get her out of his head—not while away and not now that he’s back.

When Ali’s life is threatened and military rules won’t allow him to intervene, Jon decides it’s time to take back control. The question is what would a SEAL do as a civilian? Jon’s got skills, drive and an idea, as well as a few teammates willing to cover his six. And he’s got the hope of more with Ali.
