Where Navy SEAL "Bad Ass" Brody Lane goes, trouble follows. Being run out of his hometown years ago for misbehaving with Genna Reilly—the sheriff's daughter—was one thing.

Read an Excerpt

"Genna, you're crazy. You don't have to do this."

"Of course I do. You dared me." Genna Reilly gave her best friend a wide-eyed look. The one she used whenever she wanted to appear extra sweet and innocent.

The sweet part was usually an act. The innocent part was pure truth, though. But fingers crossed, tonight was going to change that.

"I didn't dare you. Dina did. You could just take the truth instead. C'mon, I'll even ask a different question," Macy said, her desperate tone matching the intense worry in her eyes. She grabbed both of Genna's hands, hanging on tight as if her body weight could anchor her to this spot. Since Genna was a lean, mean five-ten and Macy topped out at five-two, as anchors went, the girl wasn't very effective.

"That's not how the game is played," Genna said, carefully extricating her hands, not wanting to hurt Macy but desperately wanting to be gone already.

She'd had no idea tonight's slumber party would turn wild. Oh, sure, the potential was there. That's why they always had sleepovers at Dina's, because her mom fell asleep by ten and didn't do spot breathalyzer inspections like Genna's dad. It was easy to sneak out and do fun things. Like play truth or dare.

She'd figured on a fun weekend with three of her best friends, one of the last leading up to graduation. But she'd had no idea it would be this fun.

She needed to do this. Now, while the anticipation was still zinging through her system, making her feel brave enough to take on the world. Or, in this case, to take down the sexiest bad boy of Bedford, California.

She wanted Brody Lane.

But he had practically made a career of ignoring her existence.

Time to end that.

Class vice president, squad cheer captain and the daughter of one of the most influential men in town, at seventeen Genna was no stranger to attention. Her exotic looks, long silky black hair and sky-blue eyes ensured that she got plenty of male attention, and not only in her high school classes. Nope, even though they were three years her senior, her brother's friends were always staring and flirting with her, too.

But she wasn't interested in any of them.

Not the boys in school.

Not the guys her brother ran with.

Not until he'd started hanging out with Brody last winter.

For the first time in her charmed life, Genna was smitten. Hooked. Hot…

Over a guy who was deemed off-limits. Not only by her parents, who were ridiculously overprotective. But by the town itself, all of whom considered the Lanes just this side of the devil's minions, and Brody as a hell-raiser with an overdue ticket to prison. Heck, even her brother, Joe, had told her not to be stupid when he'd caught her checking out Brody's butt.

And Brody? He looked right through her as if she were made of cellophane. It wasn't as though she expected everyone in the world to adore her. But the guy could drool a little when he saw her in shorts, couldn't he? Or at least stare when he showed up to give Joe a ride and found Genna in a bikini, strategically washing her car.

But did he?

Noooo.

The guy acted as though she wasn't even there.

Genna wasn't the contrary sort. She'd never had to be. But no matter who told her or how many times, she couldn't get Brody Lane out of her head.

So tonight, thanks to Dina's dare, she was going to do something about it.

"Genna," Macy pleaded, as if she were peeking into her best friend's thoughts. "Don't do this."

"And be known as the girl who doesn't meet her dares?" She'd rather be known as an ax-murdering floozy who wore designer knockoffs and ugly shoes.

"Maybe Macy's right," Sylvie said quietly, always ready to jump in as the voice of reason. "This isn't like daring you to stand up in Mrs. Bellevue's class and sing 'The Star-Spangled Banner' while shaking your tail feathers. If your dad finds out, he'll kill you."

"He'll kill us," Macy intoned wisely, knowing full well that Sheriff Reilly was just as likely to punish any possible accomplices as he was the actual perpetrator.

"My dad's not going to find out," Genna said dismis-sively, the negligent wave of her hand stirring a tiny breeze in the sultry night air. Her father was too busy keeping the peace and freaking out over Joe's latest escapade to pay any attention to what his little angel did.

"I hear he's wild. He likes kinky stuff."

She assumed Dina was talking about Brody now and not her dad.

"What kind of kinky stuff?" Twisting her carefully streaked blond hair around one finger, Sylvie sounded somewhere between fascinated and terrified.

Genna wasn't between anything. She was smack-dab solid in determination. And feeling hot, of course.

"I dunno. But I'll bet Genna can tell us tomorrow." When Dina's loud giggle earned her three glares, she slapped both hands over her mouth. But she didn't stop laughing.

It was just nerves over being on the rougher side of town combined with a little too much hard lemonade. Or maybe she really thought it was funny that Genna was going to put all her virginal skills to use and seduce one of the bad-dest of the town's bad boys.

"I don't kiss and tell," Genna decided. That sounded mysterious, didn't it? And kinda sexy. Besides, she figured any kissing she did deserved to be savored. Which meant kept to herself, where the gossips and tattletales couldn't whisper it around.

"You mean you don't kiss or do anything else," Dina corrected, rolling her big blue eyes.

"Dina," Macy moaned, wringing her hands in a way that proved Genna's assertion that her friend took far too many drama classes. "Don't encourage her. She'll do something crazy."

"Oh, c'mon. It's not like she's really going to jump the guy," Dina retorted. As usual, she'd picked the scariest dare she could think of when they were playing. She'd had no idea it was also her friend's secret dream. "This is Genna. She's gonna go in there, because it's a dare and she can't resist those. She'll try to flirt, Luscious Lane will do his brick wall impersonation and it'll all be over."

"The dare was to kiss Brody Lane," Sylvie pointed out quietly, casting a nervous glance toward the golden glow emanating from the garage light twenty feet away. "Gen-na's not going in there unless she's gonna follow through. You know that."

Genna stood a little straighter, her chin a smidge higher at that character evaluation. She liked being known as a girl who followed through.

She looked toward the garage, the silhouette of a man working on a motorcycle. Since Brody's dad, Brian, was working behind the counter and probably three-quarters to drunk at the bar next door, that meant it could only be his son in there.

Time to put up or shut up.

"If I'm not back in ten minutes, head home," she instructed, fluffing her hair and slicking a coat of Racy Red on her lips, then tucking the tube into the back pocket of her jeans. "I'll call you in the morning."

Before they could launch into warnings, cautions or any more stupid arguments, Genna hurried off. Her sandals made slapping sounds all the way to the garage like some kind of early-warning seduction device. She shot a quick glance back at her nervously huddled friends, then figuring that warning Brody wouldn't serve her plans, she slipped off her shoes.

Barefoot, she tiptoed up the last few feet of sidewalk and carefully peeked around the open doorway.

And there he was. Brody Lane, in all his bare-chested glory. Black hair, as stick-straight as her own, fell across his eyes as he bent over the Harley. Facing away from her, she had the perfect view of his denim-clad butt. And oh, what a butt it was. She wanted to touch it. She wanted to run her hands down the hard planes of his back, glowing gold in the poor garage lighting. Then she wanted to curl her fingers over those biceps. Rock-hard arms were so sexy in a guy, she decided then and there.

Genna fanned herself. Because, oh, baby, he was sizzling.

She took a deep breath, hoping it did intriguing things to her form. When a girl wasn't blessed with a whole lot on top, she learned these little tricks.

Then she stepped through the doorway.

She knew it was impossible given the distance, but she swore she heard a chorus of gasps from her friends. Not looking back, she stepped over the threshold, leaning her shoulder against the door frame; she rested one hand on her hip in a seductive pose she'd seen in a magazine.

And waited.

Nothing.

Genna rolled her eyes. Even when he didn't know she was there, he ignored her. This definitely had to change.

"Hey, Brody," she called out, relieved when her voice only shook a little. "How're you doing?"

His body went still; his head turned. His eyes, golden-brown like a cat's, narrowed.

Slowly, like a dream, he straightened away from the bike, the light glinting off that sleek golden skin. So, so much skin. Her gaze traveled from the broad stretch of his shoulders down his tapered waist to his jeans, slung low and loose on his hips.

Her mouth went dry. Oh, wow.

"Genna?" He cast a glance behind her, then back with an arched brow. "Joe isn't here."

She knew that. After the third screaming match with their father that week, her brother had torn off on his motorcycle before dinner, heading for the highway. To see one of his girls, Genna figured. Leaving the way clear for her to pay a visit to his best friend.

"I'm not here to see Joe."

Not the answer he'd been expecting, if his frown was anything to go by.

"Then what's up?" he asked, grabbing a rag and sliding the wrench through it before placing the tool in its spot in the big red toolbox. The area around him was as an oasis of tidy organization compared with the chaos of the rest of the garage. His space versus his dad's, Genna figured.

At her continued silence, he took a step closer, then stopped. She almost pouted. It was as if he'd heard a signal warning that she was there for something naughty.

"You have a problem with your BMW?" Frowning now, he gave her a quick once-over. Not in a sexy way, more as though he was worried she was hurt.

Genna's heart sighed. Wasn't he sweet?

"Nothing's wrong," she said, having to clear her throat after pushing the words through a mouth as dry as the Mojave. "So how're you doing? Is something wrong with your bike?"

It was all she could do not to wince at her own inanity. Seriously, Genna? That's the best you can come up with? She gave herself a mental slap upside the head as if it'd knock her back to normal. Normal Genna had no problem talking. And she'd spent the last three months practicing her flirting skills for an opportunity like this.

One where it was just her and Brody. Alone. Together.

Time to put all that practice to good use.

"You came to ask about my bike?"

"I came to visit with you," she corrected, taking another one of those deep breaths. His gaze didn't drop to her chest, though, so she let it out. No point hyperventilating. It wasn't going to make her breasts any bigger.

"Why?"

"Why not? You're a friend of my brother's. You're over at our place all the time." An exaggeration, since he'd been over maybe three times in the last year. Sheriff Reilly didn't care for troublemakers on his property. But that was beside the point. "You never visit with me, though. I figure it's because Joe's such an attention hog. My mom says he takes the title 'son' in the wrong way, figuring the whole universe revolves around him."

She grinned, waiting for him to join her. When he just stared, those gold eyes intent and cautious, she dimmed the smile a little. Obviously friendliness wasn't something he was overly familiar with. No point scaring him.

"And tonight I was out and about, and saw a light on." She gestured to the bulb swinging overhead with its halo of moths. "Since Joe's not around, I figured why not stop by and say hi."

"If Joe were here, you wouldn't have bothered?" He looked around, then spying the portable phone, grabbed it. To call her brother?

Genna's lips twitched. Wasn't he the gentleman? That's what was so fascinating about him, though. He didn't play the games boys her age did. From what she could tell, he didn't play games at all.

"Do you ever smile?" She wanted to see those lips turn upward and his gaze light up almost as much as she wanted to feel his mouth on hers and his eyes filled with desire.

He didn't respond. Just tucked his phone into his back pocket, crossed his arms over that sexy chest and stared.

"You gonna tell me why you're here? You lose a bet or something?"

Won a dare. But he didn't need to know that.

"I'll tell you as soon as you smile," she teased, stepping farther into the garage. She was hit with the scent of hot concrete, metal and oil she associated with car repair, and something else. Something earthy and appealing.

Soap. And man. Her belly quivered and her thighs trembled.

"Genna."

The sound of her name on his lips sent shivers through her, eliminating every niggling doubt or cautionary concern.

Leaving only excitement and desire.

"Actually, I'm here to seduce you," she blurted out. As if her words were gasoline on a fire, the already sultry air flared even hotter.

Good.

She was ready to get hot and wild. Shit.

Brody Lane had been in trouble plenty of times in his life. So many, it'd be easier to count the times he hadn't been in trouble.

But he'd never been as screwed as he was right now.

He was smart enough to know that.

What he wasn't was smart enough to know how to get himself out of it.

Genna Reilly.

Sugar-sweet and wickedly exotic.

The popular, preppy princess who got good grades, cheered at games and helped old ladies across the street.

About as opposite Brody's type as an eighty-year-old nun.

And the star of four out of five of his sexual fantasies.

A problem considering that at the tender age of seventeen, she was pure jailbait.

And so off-limits, she should be wrapped in barbed wire and sporting an alarm button.

Nobody messed with Sheriff Reilly's little girl.

Nobody.

And nobody'd have to be a total dumbass to not only cross that line, but to mess with Joe Reilly's little sister. The sheriff was a mean son of a bitch, but Joe was meaner. He didn't believe in letting a silly thing like the law get in his way.

Joe's mean side rarely bothered Brody.

Unless he was facing the possibility of having all that mean aimed his way.

Smart thinking said shoo Genna right back out of his garage and out to the very edges of his life again. The edge where she only showed up on the opposite side of the street from time to time. And in his hot, sweaty dreams every night.

"Are you gonna offer me a beer?" she asked, tilting her head toward the six-pack minus one he'd left in the cooler. "You're underage."

Eyes rounded in amusement, she gestured to the one he'd cracked open an hour ago, then forgot about after one swig.

"Pot, meet kettle?"

Brody's lips twitched. Damn, she had a smart mouth.

A very sexy, pouty-lipped smart mouth.

One he spent way too much time fantasizing over.

One he'd worked damned hard to ignore.

    This won't be a super long review. Just enough to say how much I

    This won't be a super long review. Just enough to say how much I love Tawyn Weber. I've got a review schedule of the second book in this series scheduled for March 11 I believe.




    Genna - starts out eager to please, needing to make her parents happy to make up for the fact that her brother ended up a total loser, but over the course of Salvation she learns to stand up for what she wants and what she needs. I loved how her obsessive tendency to bake when she's upset (a girl after my own heart, although I'm simply more likely to eat sweets already around than necessarily go to all the trouble of making something else) is the foundation for her drive to start up an actually potentially profitable baking business and to do it in a way that it can accommodate the other changes she's considering making with her life.




    Brody - he feels he'll never be more than his drunken father's son, even after he's been away for a decade, having been forced to enlist in the Navy or face trumped-up charges from Genna's father, the local sheriff, after Genna tries to seduce him (that's in the first chapter so I don't consider it a spoiler). He ultimately has never really blamed Genna for his enlistment, and in fact when she writes him about something else, he is willing to engage in a bit of hot (and I do mean hot) flirtation the old-fashioned pen-pal way.




    Brody comes home after a mission goes wrong and finally faces down the demons (and Genna) waiting for him in the small town he grew up in. He feels out of place and not worthy of the adoration that so many want to pile on him because he's been recognized by the President for his actions in combat. It's through Genna and his gradual relationship with her that he finally finds a way to heal. 




    I loved these two on the page together. They both had some heavy burdens they were trying to carry on their own and it was only as they found each other, found ways to be together despite the odds against them, that they managed to deal with their other external problems. 




    Salvation definitely is the full package - emotional, spiritual (to a minor degree), and character growth all wrapped up in a category-length hot romance novel. You can't ask for much more than that (other than maybe fangs or explosions...but I could just be prejudiced toward that sort of thing - heh).




    5 stars for A SEAL's Salvation!

    I received this book "A Seal's Salvation",  from NetGalley for an honest opinion.

    I must first say, I really did enjoy this book. I read it in one sitting, which I haven't done with a book in a while. 

    Coming from a broken home and having to deal with much more than any teenager should, Brody Lane keeps to himself. Especially living in a small town where people talk...
    But when one moment of carelessness comes his way, Brody is unable to say no... This moment will change his life. 

    After spending 10 years in the Navy, Brody is forced to return to his old hometown.. What awaits for him, and will he find his life's purpose..

    An easy read that keeps you wanting more.

    4 stars from me.

    Seventeen year old Genna had a raging crush on her brother's fri

    Seventeen year old Genna had a raging crush on her brother's friend, bad boy Brody Lane. On a dare, she intended to seduce Brody and get a kiss for her efforts. She got more than she bargained for, but the moment was swiftly ruined when her father, the sheriff of Bedford, caught them together. By the time she'd completed her time on house arrest, Brody had left town and joined the Navy. Fast forward ten years later, Genna hasn't had any luck in her dating life, her brother died, her parents still had her under their thumbs and she never forgot about the one that got away.

    Brody made something of himself by joining the Navy and becoming a SEAL. Then, out of the blue, he received a letter from Genna telling him about her brother's passing. Genna was not only shocked to have received a reply, but more so by the content of Brody's letter.

    The story started of sweetly with the sheriff's daughter and the small town's bad boy making a connection only to be torn apart by an irate and over-protective father. With that lead in to the story, I was supposed to believe that her first kiss and rounding second base with Brody had left such an impact on her that she hadn't forgotten it in ten years. The boyfriends or dates that had come after could never compare to those few minutes of bliss. Anything is possible, so I'll give her the benefit of the doubt.

    I had a bit of difficulty getting into this story because of the cliched small town mentality which was laid on very thick throughout the story. Usually I enjoy small town romances because of the sense of community and the humor that can ensue from meddling residents, but Bedford was far from idyllic. Even after ten years, the town hadn't given up on stigmas or gossip. After everything Brody had done, the sheriff was still a thorn in his side, Genna's best friend was quick to put Brody down as the loser bad-boy, and the mayor who was salivating at the mouth to have a huge parade and press coverage for the hometown hero were the icing on the cake. Then there was Genna, the girl who tried so hard to be perfect for her parents to ease the pain and guilt over her brother's shortcomings, which had eventually killed him, that she allowed herself to be manipulated every which way and have her life dictated to her.

    As a couple, their first reunion got off to a rocky start which he tried to smoothe over by suggesting they become friends and get to know one another. From there, it was thanks to him that Genna realized she needed to stand up for herself and make changes if she ever wanted to be happy. I had to wonder if she would have continued to bemoan the trajectory her life and done something about it had Brody not returned to shake things up. She did redeem herself towards the end which showed she'd finally done some growing up, and it was finally her turn to save Brody from himself.

    For me, it was an okay story. The simple plot line and rather bland characters don't make this a memorable story, but if you love military romances with friends to lovers and second chances tropes, then you'll probably like this.

    Rating: 4.5/5 A SEAL's Salvation was definitely one of my fa

    Rating: 4.5/5




    A SEAL's Salvation was definitely one of my favorite books that I read this month, the characters were very likable and the plot was really good. Tawny Weber does an amazing job creating the perfect bad boy/incredibly hot SEAL. I found myself unable to stop reading the book, it was intrigued and full of sizzling moments. After getting caught misbehaving with Genna Reilly, Brody Lane does the unthinkable when he has to face Genna's father. He is given the choice of joining the navy. Being known for getting in trouble, he knows that by leaving for the navy he was going to leave his family and Genna. He accepts, and leaves everything behind, but he wasn't prepared for what happened to him while in the navy. Years passed and he becomes a celebrated hero, not after suffering the consequence of being away for so long. Now he has secluded himself away from everyone else, distancing himself from those that love him. When Genna learns of his return to town, she finds herself unable to stop thinking about him and that's when she realizes just how much she wants him in her life. 




    Both characters in the book have a good chemistry, it's evident that they haven't forgotten each other and that's how the story unfolds. Genna has lived a life under her father's shadow and wants to try to break away from it. In contrast, Brody has been through a lot and returning to his old home brings back memories and new found obstacles that he has to face. There is some character development within the story that made the ending that much more enjoyable to read. Overall, the story was sweet and fun read, I highly recommend it.

    I really liked the way Brody was portrayed as the resident bad boy - but we were allowed a glimpse inside that showed it was mostly an act.  When his best friend's little sister comes on to him one night, he tries to fight it.  He thought he had done a good job of staying away from her, even though it wasn't really what he wanted.  Unfortunately, soon after he gives in, her sheriff father shows up and reads him the riot act.  He allows himself to be run out of town to save Genna any more wrath from her father and to save his grandmother any more embarrassment.   It was no surprise to me that he rose to the top as a Navy SEAL.  




    He thought he has put Genna and the small town prejudices behind him, but after receiving a letter from Genna with sad news about his friend and her brother, he seems compelled to writer her back - and so a flirtation develops through the U.S. Mail.  He doesn't think that anything will come of it as he never plans to return - but then a mission goes bad and his grandmother insists he come home to heal.  It is his psyche that is more damaged than his body though, and he doesn't think that it will heal anywhere.




    While he has been gone, Genna has become friends with his grandmother, and is secretly thrilled that he is returning home.  She is still under daddy's watchful eye, and thumb, and is even working for the Mayor in a position that her father 'created' and insisted that she take.  It is under this guise that she first visits Brody upon his return home.  The sparks fly, but the reunion ends in flames.




    I really enjoyed the way the author brought these two back together after their one fateful tryst - and she doesn't make it easy for them.  She throws conflict after conflict at them and they have to fight each other, circumstances, and Genna's parents to finally realize what it is they really want.  




    I can't wait to read A SEAL's Kiss and will be reviewing that for you next month as well as bringing you an interview with the series author - Tawny Weber.

    3 1/2 stars The Characters... Genna's dad has always protect

    3 1/2 stars



    The Characters...
    Genna's dad has always protected her, looked out for her, and flat out run her life. She's put up with it for far too long, trying to keep the peace with her emotional mother and wayward brother but she's had enough. When the sexy Brody comes back from where Genna's father made him go ten years ago, Genna can't resist any longer. I don't think I liked Genna until she decided to stand up to her dad. She's twenty-seven and he's still getting his way. That is so not my personality but when she finally said enough I was so cheering her on. Her passion was obvious and the love she had for her badboy was true. I ended up loving her.


    As for Brody, I always loved him. From the minute Genna walked into that garage to seduce the boy I was smitten. So was he though he wouldn't admit it. Too much a of a badboy. I loved how didn't talk but said so much. I loved how he hurt for what he saw has his failure. I loved that tough guy in him that wanted to make things better for Genna even though she had lived the rich life and he had been abused. I loved him.

    The Story...
    What's interesting about this story is the holes. I really enjoyed how we started ten years in the past and then moved to the present. I loved how parts that were not really important to the story were not drawn out just make the story fuller. Instead it was sweet and to the point.

    I enjoyed the alternating POV. It was the most fun being in Brody's head. When he would like with this other brain and when he would be turned on- it was fun to hear him think.

    Who will enjoy it...
    Peeps who like nice HOT chemistry and a straight forward fast story.

    Another great installment in the Seal¿s series by Tawny Weber ¿

    Another great installment in the Seal’s series by Tawny Weber – Sexy, Sassy and so fun!

    Brody Lane goes home after an injury to the town that sent him away to the Navy years prior for dallying with the Sheriff’s Daughter Genna. He wants to heal and deal with survivor’s guilt, not fall back into old patterns of seduction and pleasure with Genna Reilly. Genna has lived her life the way everyone else ¬¬¬has orchestrated for her but now she sees a way to fulfill the passion she sensed years before with Brody Lane.

    Can she help Brody heal and find her own inner strength to seize what she wants, even if its against everything her family wants for her?

    As with all of Tawny Weber’s books, this installment is sexy and hot, with a bad ass seal and a sweet spitfire heroine. Fantastic story! Highly recommend it!

    My Review:

    4.5 Star Review - A SEAL's Salvation

    I recommend this book.

    I enjoyed this book by Tawny. This book includes Erotic fun, passion, laughs, and heartache.

    Tawny tells a sassy, sexy story every time!!

    Brody "Bad Ass" Lane is back in town after getting injured. He is hurting and just wants to be left alone. Genna has always wanted Brody and she almost had him years ago but her father sent him away to the Navy.

    Now that he is back in town she is going to try and get him for herself. But with her family being so controlling will she be able to have him. Will he even want to keep her as much as she wants to keep him?

    Will all his issues that brought him home tear them apart just when things are getting good?

    Love both of these characters. Brody is tough but also a sweetheart. Hailey is tough and sometimes a pushover. They are both funny and sweet together but still have enough sexy passion to keep you interested in the book.

    Tawny Weber does it again with A SEAL¿s Salvation. Another great

    Tawny Weber does it again with A SEAL’s Salvation. Another great read in her Sexy SEAL’s series! Brody was run out of town and into the Navy when Genna’s dad caught the two of them. Now, Brody has returned to recuperate from an injury and deal with survivor’s guilt. Genna has always been the good girl to make up for her brothers mistakes. She’s always wanted Brody. How far is she willing to go to finally get him? 

    Brody is a sexy, wounded hero with a bad childhood. I love this series and Brody is my favorite (just don’t tell the others). The characters leap off the page and draw you in. Everything else fades away except these two and their journey to love that will make you cry and laugh. 

    I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a sexy, hot read. I’m looking forward to the next book in this series, A SEAL’s Kiss, in April.

    5 Stars =  A Must Read

    Note: I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    MUST Read!

    Contemporary Romance/Erotic Content
    5 stars
    Release: January 21, 2014

    ABOUT THE BOOK:
    Subject: Navy SEAL Petty Officer Brody Lane

    Current Status: On leave

    Obstacle: The one girl who was off-limits…

    Where navy SEAL "Bad Ass" Brody Lane goes, trouble follows. Being run out of his hometown years ago for misbehaving with Genna Reilly—the sheriff's daughter—was one thing. Now Brody is about to step into real danger. Not the suggestive letters he's been exchanging with Genna, but the kind of trouble that can send a soldier home injured and broken inside…

    Genna's entire life has been orchestrated by her family. The right job. The right friends. Enough! Brody's return offers the promise of lust-filled pleasures. Of flesh teased and tasted. She's not expecting to find a soldier with distant eyes who has secluded himself from the world. But this good girl knows exactly how to bring a bad boy back to life….

    Uniformly Hot! The Few. The Proud. The Sexy as Hell.

    MY REVIEW:
    Tawny Weber sure knows how to get things heated, in the most complicating, yet extremely worthwhile fashion!

    I loved A SEAL’s Salvation. This book started off with a daring and catchy bang, and ended with such a sweet touch that you couldn’t help but love everything about it.

    Typical teenage love story turned adult romance? I think not! This was so much more and despite hearing of similar stories, this one was one I couldn’t put down!

    Brody is caught “in the act” with the Sherriff’s daughter, who then gives him two choices: join the military, or get kicked out of town and suffer shame on your family. Being the smart guy we learn him to be, he chooses the latter. Ten years later, a lot of memories that refuse to go away and an injury during a mission and guess who has returned home?

    Oh yes, baby.

    I loved this story, the characters, and everything else about it. I’ve read the first two in the series, but I had to do it again simply because the love Tawny provides to these characters is very evident. Any part of these books will grip you, and it’s very much worth the ride. HIGHLY recommend.

    Happy reading!

    Holey moley this book is smoking hot!  Tawny has written another

    Holey moley this book is smoking hot!  Tawny has written another winner while telling the story of teenage unrequited love.   You will love the third book in the series “Uniformly Hot!” 
    Zip forward into the future and you have two adults who have now survived not only emotional pain but Brody returns back to the hometown he swore he would never return to after being injured while serving as a Navy Seal.  Watch the fireworks light the sky while Genna and Brody re-discover each other while their unique personalities and life situations pave the way for a tumultuous reunion.
    At 17, Genna seduces Brody, who is the best friend of her troubled brother Joe, over a dare.  Brody is run out of town by Genna’s father who is the sheriff in their small town, after he discovers them in a compromising situation.  The Sheriff’s small minded prejudice towards a young man, who is perceived as “not good enough” for his daughter, ends up with Brody leaving town rather than facing trumped up charges.
    Brody, code named “Bad Ass”, returns to a town he swore he would never return to, a bitter hero.  While convalescing at his Grandmother’s home, Genna begins wooing him in earnest but Brody is angry and unforgiving.  Genna’s sweet personality, gifted baking skills, and passionate belief in Brody’s attraction to her wins out in the end but not before the adage “the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach”, is put to the test.  




    Enjoy the maze that is the relationship that was destined to be.
