Nauseated! This author ought to be ashamed of herself. I'd give zero stars if I could. Keep your money.
The story has the male and female protagonists meeting when the female lead goes to what she believes is an open house. The male lead is meditating on the bed naked and aroused, and she tries to leave without him noticing her presence, but he attacks her (thinking she is an intruder). That is not my problem.
My issue is when as he rips off her clothes and ties her up with them and she believes she is about to be raped and murdered, she STOPS TO MUSE ABOUT HOW HANDSOME HE IS AND HOW HIS BODY FEELS GOOD AGAINST HERS. I personally don't care how good-looking a man is, if I think I am about to be raped and killed, I'll see him as the most repulsive person alive.
When he finally lets her go, she goes home to TAKE A BUBBLE BATH and CONTINUES TO THINK ABOUT HOW HANDSOME HE WAS AND WONDERS WHAT KISSING HIM WOULD BE LIKE.
The next day, she is furious at her colleague who sent her to the house, but when the would-be rapist shows up at her job with flowers, she not only fails to call the police, but she agrees to go out to lunch with him and gets in his car to let him drive her to the restaurant.
Clearly, this author has been never been raped (thank God, because I would never wish that on anyone). But because she has never been the victim of sexual assault, she may not realize that a REAL WOMAN would not stop in the middle of an attack to think about how good-looking the man about to possibly rape and murder her is. She would NOT fail to call the police when he showed up at her workplace. She would not agree to have a meal with him, and she would not get into a vehicle with him and let him take her anywhere he wants.
I love romance novels and military romance. I come from a family of veterans of every branch of the military. I am a sexual-assault survivor. I honestly believe that Sharon Hamilton did not realize what she was doing when she wrote this, but I am angry no one noticed the implausibility of the characters' meeting during the publication and marketing process. I may read the rest of the book eventually, if I can get over my disgust, but after the first few pages, I probably won't. Wish I hadn't wasted the money.
As far as I am concerned, what I saw reads like a rape fantasy, which is fine for your private life (I guess), but don't put it down on paper and ask people for money to read it.

## AWFUL. Worst heroine EVER. OMG, she was so needy and pathetic. SPOILER ALERT: After having sex with this hero the first day they meet, she's in love and he treats her like dirt and never wants to see her again. But her thought is: "he loves me, he just can't admit it". What? In what fantasy world does she live in? After less than a day? So she basically stalks him until he sexes her up again and dumps her once again, saying unforgiving things. Yet once again she keeps going after him. She begs again and tells him he can take her whenever he wants and he can come and go morning, noon or night. She is permanently in my TSTL catagory (too stupid to live). And the male lead (he's no hero) just gives SEALS and the Navy a bad name. Please, please do not waste your money or time on this drivel. I wish I hadn't.

Not at all what I had hoped for...
I truly enjoy good romantic suspense with strong heroines and military men. Unfortunately, I couldn't like the main characters because they were both so weak. Christy falls in lust with Kyle after he attacks her and ties her up with her own pantyhose? Then Kyle keeps being a jerk believing it's best to leave her alone, but comes back again only to repeat the process? Story was weak, too. Truly disappointing.

I loved strong, sexy SEALS!! I love the sense of family they have toward their team mates! Follow Kyle on his mission to find his missing team mate, while falling in love. He doesn't think he deserves her and he tries to stay away but he can't. Will he accidentally put her life in danger? Will she stick around when he runs hot and cold towards her? I loved this book, it was full of adventure, danger and steamy sex scenes! Don't miss out, get it now!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Smokin' Hot!!!! Accidental Seal was the first military book I have read. But I have to say it won't be the last. I will be quickly picking up the next book in the series. This book was not only sexy but it portrayed real feelings that we all conflict within ourselves at times. The way we feel for someone when we know we shouldn't but can't help but to be in love with them. I just loved this story and how Kyle and Christy were always there for each other even when the odds were against them. I found Sharon Hamilton's writing amazing. Her descriptive writing makes the reading experience even more realistic. It was action packed and full of smokin' hot love scenes. The attraction between the two main characters is undeniable. There was also plenty of humor and sarcasm to go around. This author has quickly become a favorite of mine, and I will definitely be reading more of her work.Was this review helpful?

Accidental Seal by Sharon Hamilton
I hadn’t read anything by this author when I met her at the IRC 2013 convention in TN. As I adore military romances I thought I would get one and try one out. I already had one of her books on my Kindle that I had gotten around to reading yet and boy did I realize I was missing out.
I really enjoyed this book. The intrigue, suspense, romance and military blended together just right for me. The sex scenes were very steamy and the book just flowed great.
If you like to read military romances with a lot of action and suspense to keep you on the edge of your seat this is a read for you.

The story continues from the prequel, "SEAL Encounter" where we were introduced to Kyle and his love Christy. Loved this one too, the characters are almost real, the story is interesting, kept me turning the page to find out what happens next. I blame Sharon for not getting enough sleep... :D
I recommend this book, 5 stars all the way.

Action packed first in the series....
Kyle Lansdowne is an A typical Navy SEAL. He is a rugged, handsome, sexy, Alpha male who is married to his Team. After his first glimpse of Christy, and even though he stalked her throughout the San Francisco airport, he never expected to lay eyes on her again. But the sensual, leggy blonde has never left his thoughts.
Christy hasn’t forgotten that strong body that leant up against hers when she stumbled, as the powerful arm snaked around her middle to capture her fall. She has fantasised about the very wicked things she could do with a body like that, but she knows that the fantasy is all she going to get.
An impromptu encounter will throw these unexpected lovers into a web of, deceit, drug wars and mortal danger, while their insatiable passion threatens to internally combust!
Accidental SEAL is one of the most exhilarating, action packed and HOT, and I do mean HOT!!!, books I have ever read!
