Elite Navy SEAL Enrique "Phantom" Ramirez is trained to expect the unexpected, but his growing feelings for brilliant horse trainer Elena Garcia catch him completely off guard. Phantom needs Elena's help to maintain his SEAL team's cover—more critical than ever now that they've identified a conspiracy of mysterious power brokers in both Mexico and the U.S. But how can he get her to train the ranch's quarter horses without revealing who he really is? And without revealing his need for this woman whose indomitable spirit has captured his heart...

About the Author

Holly grew up spending many lazy summer days racing her horses bareback in the Texas sun. But whenever Holly wasn't riding her horses or competing in horse shows, she was found with pen and paper in hand, writing out romantic love stories about Texas heroes.
Today, Holly lives in a small community just south of San Antonio, with her husband and two children. On the family's 80-acre ranch, surrounded by cattle during the day and hearing the howl of coyotes by night, Holly has endless inspiration for her writing. Holly's current Romantic Suspense series about heroic Navy SEALs is set in her own backyard of south Texas.

3.75stars Phantom and his team of SEALs are still on a secret mission and under cower. For Phantom to stay on a track with the mission he must hire Elena the hose trainer that he not so subtly fired from his ranch. Elena is thrilled that she will work again with old horses and that she will work with a hot cowboy that is easy on the eye doesn't hurt too. Phantom and Elena have some crazy chemistry and they play this game of hot and cold until Elena's life becomes in jeopardy and secrets are revealed. A story with insta love with the SEAL cowboy that is combined with mystery suspense and a little bit of action. I volunteered to review an ARC of this book for NetGalley

I received this copy from Netgalley for an honest review. The opinions are my own. I love Phantom and Elena as a couple. Phantom is a good mix of an alpha male and caring man. Elena, too, is a strong character and a good fit for Phantom. The author does an excellent job of developing the story. I enjoyed the interaction between the characters and tension as they work things out. This is a very well-written book and definitely worth reading. My only issue is that the conflicts in the story are common to this genre. However, that in no way takes away from the pleasure of the book. I enjoyed this enough that, even with that one flaw, I will buy the book as well.

I didn't read the first book before reading this one and fully understood everything that happened. This is the first book by this author that I have read and it certainly won't be the last! This one is about Enrique "Phantom" Ramirez and Elena Garcia. Phantom needs Elena to help his team keep his cover but what he never expects is how he is coming to feel about her. But now he not only has to do his job but he has to keep the woman who is slowly becoming his everything safe. I really liked this one! Phantom and Elena have this connection and chemistry right from the start and it just draws you right in. There is plenty of suspense and action that makes you want to know more. There is steam, and some snarkiness thrown in-which I love by the way! And the story itself just drew me in and kept me reading, along with going back and reading the first book because I wanted to know more! Can't wait for the next one!

I'm definitely enjoying this series! I absolutely loved the first book!! This one was really good also but I did like the first a little bit more! This is the second book in the series about a group of ex navy seals put together deep in Texas on a ranch and they are given special ops to go do and they're definitely exciting! There is plenty of suspense, action, and there's some heavy steam to it too!! Lol I definitely recommend reading this book and series! It's well worth the read! Thank you Netgalley and the publishers for sharing this book with me!

A SEAL ALWAYS WINS by Holly Castillo is the second book in the Texas Navy Seals romantic suspense series. The two protagonists are Navy SEAL Enrique (Phantom) Ramirez and horse trainer Elena Garcia. Phantom and his team are working undercover as quarter horse ranch owners and decide they need Elena’s help to maintain cover and hopefully learn information that will help them with their mission. The story line is set in south Texas and in Mexico. The characters are compelling and definitely someone you can root for. They are strong and their goals are clear and believable. The supporting characters are well-rounded and enhance the story. The stakes were high as the tension built up to the conclusion. It had plenty of suspense and did not have the instant love that is so common in books. It also had some deep themes running through it including sexual harassment, drug and human trafficking, corruption, friendship and much more. Overall, the plot was intriguing and contemporary. I was immediately interested in this novel. The prose was well-written and engrossing. The story is gripping, paced well, and well worth reading. I recommend it to those that enjoy romantic suspense novels and I am looking forward to reading book one in the series. Thanks to SOURCEBOOKS Casablanca and Holly Castillo for a digital ARC of this novel via NetGalley and the opportunity to provide an honest review. Opinions are mine alone and are not biased in any way.

An exciting sequel to the first book in this series. Navy SEAL Enrique "Phantom" Ramirez had taken over the training of the ranch horses when he realized, too late, that letting horse trainer Elena Garcia go was a mistake. When he convinces her to return to the Bent Horseshoe Ranch, he begins to have feelings for her. He knows that she has been hurt before and slowly convinces her to trust him. After he and his group of undercover SEALs, masquerading as ranchers, broke up a drug ring Phantom hoped that their troubles were over. A whisper of another possible threat arises and this time Elena may be in danger. I received an advance review copy at no cost and without obligation for an honest review. (by paytonpuppy)

For me this was more of a 3.5 story. This second story in the series is the first book I have read by this author and it was entertaining. The premise of the series is of a Navy SEAL team working out of a ranch in Texas. They were originally assigned to track and stop the drug cartels from infiltrating the USA. But now they have stumbled into a human trafficking ring. Could the same individuals be the mastermind of both situations or are they dealing with two entities? The main characters in this book are Phantom Ramirez and horse trainer Elena Garcia. They met originally when he fired her the moment the group took over the ranch she had been working at. But when he realizes he is over his head in training quarter horses (this is his cover), he seeks her help. The attraction intensifies, but Phantom is keeping his identity a secret. Will the discovery cause Elena to loose her trust in him? When she’s put in danger , Phantom vows to safe her. But will he be able to get to her on time? In general, I found the story entertaining, though Elena was less likable than Phantom, she was still ok. I would give it a 3.5 but knowing that authors give their all in their craft, I will give it a 4 star review. I was entrusted a copy of this book by Netgalley. The opinions expressed are solely my own.
