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.

Most guys are going to look at girls and be with them and in this day in age, vice versa as well. This book is good. The author seemed to say that the main guys did spend time with various women but due to their career their partners were not for life. At least until the guy found the one person he would stay with forever. There was also the reference about the guys that went to Madam M's shop who also shopped for various women in their lives. So the story did not seem to me to reference only a group of people that slept around but everyone else did too in the story. At least until they found the one person that made them stop. ~

SEAL Brotherhood Book One On her first day working as a real estate consultant, Christy Nelson enters the house she is supposed to show to clients later only to find a naked man on the bed in the master bedroom. She almost makes it outside before he grabs her and ties her up in her own pantyhose. When Kyle Lansdowne finally apologizes to her at the office, she knows she will forgive him if he allows her to see him again. Kyle's friend is missing and he knows he must find Armando before something terrible happens, but he doesn't anticipate the lengths Armando's enemies will go to in order to enlist his help. Christy is taken on a whirlwind romance and mystery, but will she be able to handle Kyle and everything he brings into her life? If you're looking for your next special ops team to follow, this series is one you will want to jump into. *I received this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

This was a really great book for the first of the series. It started off a little fast for me but it evened out and I got into a very steady reading pattern. I am really looking forward to reading more about this awesome Seal team. Kyle and Christy's story was action packed and smoking hot! Great job Sharon Hamilton! Can't wait to read more!

The think I liked most about this book was the way the characters related with each other.  We have humor, misunderstandings, loyalty, and betrayal.  The SEALs on the team are very close and I loved how you could see that every time they were together.  We get to know most of the team to some extent - it was a great way to introduce them while still focusing on our main character, Kyle. Kyle is a hard man - but that makes sense because he's seen and done things that were necessary, but not easy.  But he seems to melt just a little when Christy is around.  She seems to understand him without him having to really say anything.  Their first meeting was a bit rough, and I'm not sure I would have been able to get over it like Christy had.  There were a handful of times that the characters acted a bit - over the top, but this is a fantasy and it definitely kept the book very entertaining. I had a hard time relating to Christy at first, but she definitely grew on my by the end.  She's a tough little princess-like girl that knows what she wants, at least most of the time.  She is put under quite a bit of stress and has a good mix of cracking under it and fighting back. As with many military romances, there was a lot of action.  But in this book it was spread out and given in doses that were easy to absorb without getting too much.  It was very well done and the military story arc was incredibly exciting.

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 really enjoyed this book and would love to read the rest of the series. Well written and good story. I would like to know more about what  happens with Madame M's store though. I am hoping for the rest of the series to come out for the NOOK soon.

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!

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.

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!
