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.

Anya and Stryker have a lot of chemistry. The character building is solid and interesting as is the story line. The setting is nicely written. The flow of the story is easy and fun. The points of view enhance the telling of the story. There is a lot of action and suspense. A very enjoyable read. This is my honest review in exchange for a copy received from Net Galley.

I liked Stryker and Anya’s story. I also liked the rest of Stryker’s team. I can tell this is going to be a great series. There was a lot of action and build up in this story. One thing I didn't like was how predictable it was at times. Anya and Stryker’s chemistry was present and off the charts. Definitely recommend.

Navy SEALs undercover on a Texas Ranch? Holly Castillo’s A SEAL NEVER QUITS has some action, some romance, a lot of secrets and some hot SEALs saddling up for danger and covert operations. When their leader finds himself falling for the local veterinarian, their mission could be compromised if she discovers who he really is. The only problem is the heroine just didn’t come to life for me. I couldn’t believe in her as a fully functioning human, let alone a worthy love interest for the team leader, but I do see some major potential for the rest of the SEAL team in future books! A quick read, light on depth, and maybe a not a love match made in readers’ heaven, but Holly Castillo does entertain with SEAL team interactions! I received a complimentary ARC edition from Sourcebooks Casablanca!

I enjoyed this book! Its the first book I have read by Holly Castillo and it won't be the last. This is book 1 in the Texas Seals .So more to look forward to. I did feel like maybe there was a novella or something before this. Like I missed something. The story is told from Strykers point, Anya's point and the bad guy. Several bad guys. I thought starting this one would be typical romance suspense with Military guys, (SEALS in this case). When it came to the bad guys it seemed more intense. I personally don't need chapters of explicit "romance" but it appears to me the norm more and more for all author, and being honest, I skim those parts. The beginning and ending of sexcapade is it for me. I loved the details with all the SEALS, you connect to them, they are done well and I am sure each ones book will flesh them out more. I wanted to like Anya, the traits were there, they just weren't deep enough, or fleshed out enough. I miss that, she could have been more and I think it would have made the story more. There is intrigue, mystery, romance and suspense with some badass SEALS. I am grateful the arc, I am so glad I asked for it and that I read it, I will be looking for other books Holly Castillo has written and am looking forward to this series. Thank you Holly Castillo, Sourcebooks Casablanca and Netgalley All thoughts and opinions are my own and were unsolicited.

I loved how I was pulled into this story - the connection between the main characters, the brotherhood shown with the team, and the way the small Texas town and ranch and the missions came to life around me. I appreciated and adored getting to really feel and understand both Anya and Stryker, getting lots of time in both of their heads and riding out the push and pull of their relationship. Add in a crazy bad-guy story line that delivers just the right amount of anxiety, suspense, and surprises and you have a attention-grabbing action-adventure suspense romance story! I loved how Anya was a mix of sweet, strong and vulnerable - the perfect compliment to Stryker's protective nature and tough-guy emotional needs. These two truly needed the other one, fitting together like they should. I look forward to the next book, seeing what's next for this SEAL team to uncover and see another SEAL heart be conquered.

This is a voluntary review of an advanced copy. What an action packed book! Lots of smoldering attraction, SEAL missions, and betrayal add up to an exciting romantic drama. Stryker and his SEAL team are tasked with bringing down a drug cartel while acting as ranchers. Stryker meets the veterinarian for the ranch,,Anya and the sparks fly! Lots of twists and turns as the team tries to find out why classified information is leaked or they are not receiving the full mission info that they need to survive. Hope there is more revealed in a future book as we just get a glimpse at the end of who is behind this plot. Stryker keeps letting himself get deeper and deeper with Anya but then pulls back which hurts Anya. It is also hard for him as he cannot tell her who he really is or what he is doing there so that is another complication to their story! Things really fall apart for their mission and for Stryker when Anya is in danger. I love that she doesn't wait to be rescued and tries to save herself! Great HEA but I sure hope that Phantom and Elena will get their own book!!

Undercover on a Texas ranch with his tight-knit Navy SEAL team, Lieutenant Amador “Stryker” Salas and their assignment requires all their skills, all their secrets and all their know-how. The local veterinarian, Amya Gutierrez loves animals and the ranching life and when she becomes caught in the crosshairs of a mission gone sideways, Stryker must risk everything to keep her out of harm’s way, even if it destroys him. The first book in an exciting new Navy SEAL series is off to a great start with a host of wonderfully sexy cowboy SEALs, thrilling suspense and a sweet romance. The characters are strong, compelling and easily grab readers’ attentions and the chemistry between Stryker and Anya is off the charts sizzling. The relationship between them however is complicated the secrets that he keeps and the heroine is spunky and keeps a level head about her when things go wrong, making it her very likeable. The plot is a complex, multi-faceted web of intrigue and bad guys and while a little on the slow side, there is lots of suspense and excitement as surprising twists causes some very deadly changes in the team’s mission. They have been tasked with covert ops across the border that has enemies popping up everywhere, betrayals, traitors, and danger flowing from the pages and readers wanting to know more.

✦‪Review: A SEAL NEVER QUITS by Holly Castillo Publication Date: July 30, 2019 Genre: Romantic Suspense Reviewed by: Reading in Pajamas/ Donna Rated 4 Stars I loved the premise of a Special-Ops team setting up shop on a sprawling ranch with an ongoing antagonist hiding behind every bush. I did find that six handsome alpha males doing this in a small town close to the bad guys, with no believable story, and money to burn on said ranch…unbelievable and asking for trouble. However, I liked all the guys and their group dynamic. Stryker was believable and thankfully he didn’t dwell on the “I’m not good enough for her” too much. Anya was also believable and had an inner strength that moved the story along. Their romance was hot and moved along the storyline quite well. The bad guys were a little stereotypical, but fun to read and guess about who is pulling their strings. I found this book to be a fun and exciting read – making me anxious to see where the series goes from here. *Review copy provided by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. ~*~*~*~

Lieutenant Amador "Stryker" Salas and his Navy SEAL team have been assigned to a covert operation on a ranch in Texas. There is possible information that a terrorist attack, against the United States, is being planned. They are to appear to be ranchers while determining if the threat is credible and if things should go bad, the government will disavow any knowledge of the team or operation. When Anya Gutierrez, the local veterinarian, shows up at the ranch, Stryker has no idea who she really is, but finds that she has been treating the animals on the ranch for years. When the terrorists learn about the ranch, the danger rises. Someone is disposing of those who no longer can provide needed information. Who is the “head boss” behind the threat? Meanwhile, the attraction is strong between Stryker and Anya and when Anya could be in danger, Stryker must protect her at all costs. A thrilling romantic suspense from beginning to end. I received an advance review copy at no cost and without obligation for an honest review. (by paytonpuppy)
