Overview

In Navy SEAL Dex Riley's world, women fall into two categories: those who don't ask questions and those who wish they hadn't. He hides the darkness in his past, content to run an island adventure company in the Caribbean with members of his former SEAL team--until resort guest Emma Richardson targets him for a vacation fling. Her fresh innocence and insistence on seeing hero material in Dex where none exists makes him yearn to be the man she deserves. And that terrifies Dex more than any war zone he's ever faced, until he discovers Emma has demons of her own...

4 - "Thanks for the memories." Stars! Claiming Her SEAL, is the first book I have read by Kat Cantrell, it is also the first book in the new multi-Author ASSIGNMENT: Caribbean Nights series, with Zoe York and Anne Marsh contributing to the series going forwards. So you are basically getting hot SEALs, on hot Caribbean Islands, I cannot find anything wrong with that equation. This book focuses on James ‘Dexter’ Riley, and the hot and sexy fling he has with vacationing Emma Richardson. You are also introduced to the rest of Dex’s ex SEAL brothers, and the reasons they are all in the Caribbean as the novel progresses. Aqueous Adventures is a company set up by six of them post military, and you soon work out that Dex isn’t the only one who bought back more than a few demons from their time in the Military, and I hope that as the series progresses we are given Charlie, Evan, Jace, Miles and Jack’s stories. His demons didn’t mix well with polite company. I really liked the dynamic with this one, although Emma has a few issues of her own that she is dealing with, the story was more about her pushing Dex to open up about the darker parts of his life, and how having been burnt by a woman in the past, that not everyone is going to judge his actions whilst in the Military the same way as his ex did. "The only way to break free from the darkness is too kick your way to the surface." But at the same time, Dex really helped Emma deal with the reasons she had traveled to Duchess island, the drama is there for them, but it doesn’t take over the story between this couple. I just found it really easy to get into and read, with plenty of sweet and sexy moments to keep it moving along. I wouldn’t say the plot holds many surprises but it’s really, well written and has set up the series perfectly, and I cannot wait to read more from this, and the other authors involved. Coming up - Ruined By A SEAL – Zoe York Revealing Her SEAL – Kat Cantrell Sweet For A SEAL – Anne Marsh With books due for release from February until July, this series is going to be the perfect way to get yourself a bit of Caribbean sun, before the summer arrives! ARC generously provided via Netgalley, and it was my pleasure to provide the above honest review.

Kat Cantrell writes stories that are nuggets of temptation. Whenever I start one of her novels, I go in thinking I'll just read a chapter today and another tomorrow- BUT it never works out that way. I get so engrossed that I have to devour it all at once. Claiming Her Seal was given to me in exchange for an honest review. Dex needed to start over after spending years as a SEAL. The change brought him to a peaceful Caribbean getaway that offered a change of pace and a new career opportunity. Emma is dealing with emotional scars and searching for a way to come to terms with her pain. Dex and Emma are kindred souls. This story is full of heartbreaking truths and seductive heat but it also is about making the choice to face down life's pain and becoming a stronger individual for it.

This is an exciting new series written by Kat Cantrell, Zoe York and Anne Marsh. Navy SEALs will star, each author will have her own team located on different islands but with some overlap of the groups from time to time. So far I have picked up there is a group working in executive training, at least one SEAL working in K-9 training and the group Kat introduces in this group is working to make their fledgling company profitable while taking tourists on various adventure-excursions. James “Dex” Riley has a special skill set that made him very successful in the military – one that does not translate to civilian life quite so easily. He has limited his interactions with women to a certain type until Emma Richardson shows up on Duchess Island. He tries to do what is right for her not realizing that what they both need to overcome certain issues in their lives might be found in one another rather than alone. This is a tender, loving, caring book that had some very steamy moments. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book, look forward to more in the series and thank Zoe York for making it available to me to read and review.

Title: Claiming A Seal - Assignment Caribbean Nights 1 Author: Kat Cantrell Published: 2-19-2016 Publisher: Alpe D'Huez Press/ Kat Cantrell Pages: 149 Genre: Romance Sub Genre: Women's Fiction, Military ISBN: 9 ASIN: B01BU7PHA4 Reviewer: DelAnne Reviewed For: NetGalley . Dex Riley and his former SEAL team members have had enough and left their former lives and the nightmare world of war that haunts them. Together they have started an Island Adventure Company. They hope it will begin to restore their souls and rebuild their sanity. Dex has decided to only get involved with women who know the score. No innocents for with dreams of hearts and flowers as he no longer believes in love. Emma Richardson has come to the Caribbean with her friend Rachel to heal after being nearly killed by someone she loved and trusted. She has decided to treat herself to a vacation fling and has decided Dex will do nicely. Dex sees beyond Emma's brazen actions to the hurt innocent women beneath and declares her off limits. Will their shared attraction overcome their reluctance and heal them both or destroy them forever. Anyone who knows someone who has dealt with the horrors of war or traumatic events knows the scars run deep and that time, love and patience are the only answers. Kat Cantrell shows us that just because the souls and heart of a person are damaged that you cannot love and live or even trust again. The story moves quickly and so smoothly you will soon find yourself sighing as you turn the last page. I look forward to reading more of this series about men who deserve a happy and loving future. Revealing Her Seal, will be out in April 2016,

A delightful story of two lost souls trying to survive. The story line draws you into Dex and Emma's journey of self preservation. The characters are intense and have remarkable chemistry. I really enjoyed this book, don't miss out! Gifted a copy for an honest review.

I thought this one was great. Kat Cantrell is a new to me author but she definitely has a new fan. This is a new multi author series that takes place on a Caribbean Island where ex SEAL's have set up a new business. In this book we have Dex's story. A troubled soul who believes he's unworthy of anyone's love. That is until Emma Richardson shows up and shatters life as he knows it. She has demons of her own to face but he's inspired by her straight at it attitude. Quickly these two are tearing up the sheets and searing a place in each others heart. Great start to the series and I can't wait for more! I definitely recommend this one.

Claiming Her SEAL by Kat Cantrell was beautiful hot story of two broken souls that find comfort and support in each other. I absolutely loved this book, it has everything I look for in a good contemporary romance story, lots of emotions, hot sex and really hot strong characters. Dex and Emma are perfect together, there is no judgement from either and you are pulling for them. You will have to read to find out if they are strong enough to make a relationship work. I was given a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

4 1/2 STARS! A team of former SEAL's getting together to run a business in the Caribbean makes for a sexy, hot read! It's a fast and fun story with a super cute connection between these two even though they deal with a lot of seriousness in their conversations. The only thing that would have made me enjoy it even slightly more is a little more of a background behind them leaving the Navy and settling there with their business and their side jobs. I really enjoyed getting to know Dex and Emma and can't wait to continue with Evan and Rachel's story next! Emma Richardson is trying to get over a traumatic experience, so she decides to get away from it all and go on vacation with her best friend Rachel. Not long after arriving, she runs into Dex on the beach and strikes up a flirtation. Dex Riley escaped the real world of the States after his several tours with his SEAL team was over and now is running an island adventure company with several of the guys. He's attracted to Emma but isn't looking for the type of straight and narrow type of gal that he thinks she is. When he finds out she has a history of her own, will he decide to throw caution to the wind and have that fling? ** Received free in exchange for an honest review **
