A SEAL's Pleasure (Harlequin Blaze Series #843) by Tawny Weber

Subject: Navy SEAL Gabriel Thorne

Mission: Initiate Operation: Romance…and prove that one night isn't enough!

Explosives expert and Navy SEAL Gabriel "Romeo" Thorne makes his living tempting fate. Pushing the limits. So far, he's never lost—especially when it comes to women. That is, until his best friend's wedding, where Gabriel is suddenly face-to-face—and deliciously body-to-body—with the one woman hot enough to detonate his self-control.

Tessa Monroe is used to being in control with men. Gabriel, on the other hand, is pretty much her sex kryptonite. Hard, gorgeous, dark-eyed kryptonite. Even as her defenses whisper "danger," lust demands she take her pleasure with him and then run. Now they're skirting the edge of an explosive attraction…where one wrong move could mean disaster.

This is the continuing series from Tawny Weber and her Uniformly Hot(Sexy SEALs) stories. You don't need to read the previous books to enjoy this story. It is Tessa and Romeo aka Gabriel's turn at romance. He's generally known as doing well at everything and she is very efficient but not into romance. This is a great read, and if you have read the series, then you learn Gabriel's background which I didn't know was Native American.  Great story.

I received this book free from the author. I am voluntarily choosing to review it. Two hard-headed people who want sex their own way with no commitment. They are going to show each other that they can have great sex with one another and walk away! A really good story about friendship, love and commitment with very sexy characters and sparks flying. I would have liked a little bit more detail about the SEAL side of things, but that is just me. I love details. But it IS about his pleasure!

Very good book. Gabriel and Tessa met briefly at a Halloween party and hadn't been able to forget each other. Six months later they saw each other again and the sparks flew. They are very much alike, both known as "love 'em and leave 'em" types. I loved the encounters between Tessa and Gabriel. Tessa resists at first because Gabriel is one man who threatens the control she keeps on her emotions. But it doesn't take long for the attraction to overcome her caution. All she wants is a chance to have him and get him out of her system. Gabriel is usually the same way with women, but something about Tessa has him wanting to do things differently after hearing her echo some of his same attitudes. It was interesting that Tessa is more of a use them and lose them person. She doesn't believe in love and romance, partly because of her mother's example (six marriages) and what she has seen. Gabriel is a man who prefers a little romance with his lust. I loved how he decided he would romance her rather than just sleep with her, building the tension between them. Tessa is really confused by his actions and doesn't know quite how to react. Because Gabriel is away over the next few weeks, they spend a lot of time talking. Some of it is just normal, share your day stuff, but some of it was pretty hot. During that same time period, both of them realized that what they had was moving beyond the physical and it was scaring them both. Gabriel and Tessa have something else in common. Both of them are intensely loyal to their friends, and tend to take on the responsibility for others' happiness and welfare. Gabriel has something going on with a member of his team that he feels is his alone to deal with. It's creating stress and problems and when it gets out of hand, Gabriel feels that the consequences are his fault, and that it was his distraction with Tessa that had him handling things the wrong way. Meanwhile, Tessa has some things going on with her own job that she would normally share with her friend Livi. But Livi is pregnant and planning her wedding (a stress all on its own) and Tessa doesn't feel right unloading on her. When Gabriel returns and sees Tessa again, the tension that's been building explodes between them. What happens next is so intense that it kind of freaks them both out. They avoid each other for a bit, but eventually are drawn back together. I liked seeing their moments of vulnerability and support for each other. But then Gabriel decides that everything that went on with his team means that he can't have both his career and Tessa so he pushes her away. That confrontation is emotional, as Gabriel says things that are at odds with how he really feels but what he thinks he has to do. I hurt for Tessa as she tries to deal with her heartbreak. A heart to heart with Livi shows Tessa that it's okay to lean on your friends, and gives her the courage to fight for what she wants. I loved the ending and seeing how both Tessa and Gabriel risk their hearts for a chance to have it all. I liked seeing more of Mitch and Livi from A SEAL's Secret. Their example is one of the things that eventually showed Gabriel and Tessa what they could have.

This was fantastic. I saw the sparks fly between Gabriel and Tessa in a prior book in their one brief meeting and was NOT disappointed when it came to this book and getting their full story. I enjoyed seeing why Tessa was so about being in control with a man and watching Gabriel break through that shell even while she got through to him on other levels. Don't miss out on this book. The hero and heroine make it sooooo worth the read and, of course, Tawny can write herself some sexy scenes! 5 stars, easily! Book provided by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Romeo (Gabriel) has been known to be able to get any woman he wants. Tessa can also get any man she wants. It was fun watching the battle of wits these two did to out do each other and in doing that found that they had really found the perfect person for them. Gabriel has a strong sense of values that speak to Tessa who is really not sure if she can trust a man. It was an awesome read.

When two master players on the field of pleasure and flirt, who always win, comes together, the sparks are about to fly! Gabriel and Tessa surely have combustible connection. They are so hot and sensual, the steam is smoldering. What I enjoyed immensely, was the wait Gabriel put into their sexual relationship, wanting their connection to be different from all the others before. They get to know each other, they even have begun sort of friends, they comfort each other and give each other support. Yes, they run for cover behind the flirting and dirty talk, constant banter between them, just to avoid the intense feelings they are having. But the feelings are there, getting deeper, and there's no escape from it. Both having problems with their careers, someone else is messing behind their backs, making choices that affect people around them, and possibly could change both their careers. This common core brings Gabriel and Tessa even closer together, as they offer advice and support. The story is full of wedding stress, career moves, friends, loyalty, trust, heated sensual moments, and yes, love. Very entertaining story, that made me smile ~ Four Spoons

Like a dirty talking, sexy SEAL? If so, you will love Gabriel - he will charm your panties off! We first met Romeo and Tessa in the previous book, A SEAL's Secret, and we continue where it left with Mitch and Livi getting ready to tie the knot. Romeo and Tessa create sparks whenever they are close, but she has no plans to give into the attraction. Romeo has never been able to resist a challenge and will do anything to win, including taking his time with a proper seduction. The build up to their first time is HOT!  They spend a lot of time talking over the phone - and he has quite a mouth on him. What starts out as just sex, turns into more, but neither one is prepared for it. It was great seeing both Gabriel and Tessa work through the their issues. I think this is Tawny's hottest SEAL book so far, can't wait to see what she has in store for us next! ARC received in exchange for an honest review.

Navy SEAL Gabriel "Romeo" and columnist Tessa are the male/female versions of each other. This makes for an interesting battle of wills. Both are determined to get their way and never have more than just a sexual relationship. I loved the way Tawny Weber used their strengths and weaknesses to not only pull this couple together but also help out their best friends. This is a stand alone book but once you read it, you will want to read all of the books in the series. GO SEALS!

Another Sexy Seal! Another sexy seal book by Tawny Weber. This book is part of the Uniformly Hot series, and can be read as a standalone, but once you read one book you will want to read them all. Gabriel “Romeo” is a Navy Seal who specializes in explosives. He is at his best friend’s wedding when he meets Tessa. Tessa is used to being in control with men that is until she meets Gabriel. They both like to be in control of a relationship and make to commitments. I love how they both learn to love and trust each other. I love how the author keeps bringing the characters from the past books into the current books because the readers have grown to love them all. I am looking forward to reading the next book in this series.  A Review copy was provided to me in exchange for a fair and honest review. The free book held no determination on my personal review.

Gabriel and Tessa are so much alike. Neither of them thought they could ever have a permanent relationship. Tessa has a lot of changes going on in her life and Gabriel has some stress. They are so used to solving problems for everyone else, can they set aside their problems and realize they are both long-term people?

I love Tawny's SEAL books because they are such great, pleasureable stories. However, this sASEAL'S Pleasure by Tawny Weber Review by cjr I love Tawny's SEAL books because they are such great, pleasureable stories. However, this story about Mitch and Tessa goes above and beyond. Most romance reads follow the, one half of the couple fights falling in love tooth and nail and the other half has to fight an uphill battle to get them to admit it and do something about it, story line. The things I most enjoyed about this book was that both Mitch and Tessa talked a really good game but, when it came right down to it, they both had serious issues that they recognized in each other but, not in themselves. That really made this a truly satisfying read! I LOVED IT!!

Sizzling, sexy, and such a good read. Gabriel "Romeo" Thorne doesn't do relationships. How fair would it be to leave a woman behind constantly worrying about him. That is until Tessa Monroe came barreling into his life. Spending time together for the wedding of their best friends may prove his undoing! This one is really good and I highly recommend it!

A Seal's Pleasure by Tawny Weber is a fun tug of war between two alpha characters. Mitch and Tessa are both so used to being in control that neither wants to relinquish it to  the other.  The entertaining element of the story is taking the journey with these two headstrong people.  Tawny Weber is an author that always leaves me entertained and satisfied with her brand of storytelling.  I received an ARC of A Seal's Pleasure for an honest review.  THIS IS A MUST READ!!!

This was a well written story with remarkable characters. Gabriwl and Tessa have a strong sexual attraction but neither is looking for love. It was hard for me to put this book down as I needed to see where this journey took them, and I was not disappointed. Well worth reading. Received copy for review.

My Thoughts: I have an intense adoration for the Uniformly Hot SEALs books from Tawny Weber. Like complete, total adoration. I literally make grabby hands when it comes to these books, and with good reason. Every one has amazing characters that have a way about them that sets them apart from the typical romance novel character. A SEAL's Pleasure was definitely on board with this. Gabriel and Tessa have this chemistry almost immediately. Even though she thinks she can give in to temporary temptation, he has other plans. He wants to romance her first. It leads them into new territory, uncharted and full of danger. Before they even realize it, feelings are coming into play, and as scary as it is, it's amazing. A SEAL's Pleasure is a hot cup of romance, full of sweet and sexy moments. Gabriel and Tessa are perfect together, and you can feel it. There's so much more to them, the way they read each other and understand each other. It's simply amazing. Definitely a must read! My Rating: Very Good

Two very explosive people who when together sparks fly. Neither one want a relationship just to have a good time. Tessa just wants one night to get Gabriel  out if her system she didn't count on the connection and attraction to be so strong. Tessa is losing her true self with all changes occurring in her life. Gabriel is trying to deal with adjustments on his new SEAL team, but it's a bumpy road. He doesn't mess with emotions especially ones dealing with the heart. What is one to do when hearts come in to play? Fight or flee? Can these two so against love actually embrace it?
