A SEAL's Proposal (Sexy SEAL #1) by Tawny Weber

Being the best means making sacrifices, but do vows made at 16 hold true at 24?

Duty First, Duty Only…
As a teenaged Sea Cadet, Sam Morelli joined the elite club his brother formed with other teens, focused on a single goal: to become Navy SEALs. Membership required a vow that once he became a SEAL, the team would be his only commitment. Distractions like relationships or dependents would be forbidden. Eight years later, on the cusp of achieving his goal, Sam has forgotten that vow. But Bryanna Spencer hasn’t.

Sugar, shoes, and a sexy SEAL…
Numbers whiz Bryanna Spencer loves chocolate, designer shoes, and Sam Morelli. She’s always dreamed of one thing: being Sam’s wife. Raised in a Navy family, she knows the rules: to be a great SEAL, a man can’t have a woman weighing down his thoughts. Bryanna’s been nibbling on sweet, sexy, better-than-chocolate-covered-caramel Sam for four years, but Sam’s dream of being a SEAL has been with him longer. His dream is her nightmare.

Some vows are made to be broken…
With Sam home on leave for Christmas, Bryanna has one last chance to prove to Sam that he wants her more than he wants his SEAL Trident. But time is running out. Once he finishes the last phase of his training, she may lose him forever. But Sam may have different kind of vow in mind…

A SEAL’s Proposal (Sexy SEAL #1) by Tawny Weber

This cover is… subtle…!! It doesn’t fit the book, but I guess it sells copies!

This was a surprisingly well-written and complete novella that tackles something romance writers turn a blind eye to: that navy SEALs rarely have successful relationships.

Novellas tend to work better when hero and heroine already know each other, or – better yet – when they are already in a relationship, as they are here. A relationship in trouble is easier to bring to a believable happy ending in a short space of time than one that does not yet exist.

These were two complete characters, with interests and friendships and families. The military aspects were researched well, and the realities of the lifestyle were taken into consideration.

Best of all was that in a short space of time, the author convinced me this was a couple who would stay together.
