Overview

"Nicole Helm writes my favorite cowboys." —New York Times Bestselling Author MAISEY YATES

Three former Navy SEALs
Injured in the line of duty
Desperate for a new beginning...
Searching for a place to call their own.

Jack Armstrong's been slowly piecing his life back together after a career-ending injury bounced him from the SEALs. The only trouble is, his family's on their way to his new haven in Montana...and Jack refuses to let them know he's still hurting. Desperate, he makes a deal with local bad girl Rose Rogers: in exchange for some extra security, she'll play the perfect loving girlfriend.

Rose doesn't trust any man, much less some tough-as-nails former SEAL. But the more they settle into their ruse, the more things start to feel real, and the more Rose's true fear surfaces—that she'll never be good enough for love. But Jack isn't about to lose Rose. He's done running when things get tough, and he's determined to prove—once and for all—that even the most troubled hearts can find their way to redemption.

4.5 Stars This is book two in the Navy SEAL Cowboys series and it features Jack Armstrong and Rose Rogers. Jack has PTSD and leg injuries from when he was a SEAL. Rose has her own PTSD from life with horribly abusive parents. He needs a fake girlfriend and she needs a bouncer for her bar and that’s when the line between truth and lies starts to blur. The steam coming off my e-reader was HOT! SIZZLING! This book is full of fantastic characters except for Madison and Mike. Oh and Rose’s parents too. All 4 of them are awful people for different reasons. The characters developed at the perfect rate. The story line was smooth with just the right amount of drama. I can’t wait to read more from this very talented author.

I love this series and the second book was a satisfying book as was the first. In this one, Jack falls for the strong independent barkeeper Rose. They both need help so for acting for the fake girlfriend for Jack he keeps her bar safe for potential stalker- her abusive father. In all the scheme they get to really know each other to the very deep part of their soul and they help heal the hurt for each other. I loved the story it is emotional, heartbreaking and simply amazing. Really highly recommended read. Can't wait for another. I volunteered to review an ARC of this book for Netgelly.

Loved! (Even more than the first book in the series-- Cowboy SEAL Homecoming --and that's saying something!) Jack and Rose (the Titanic joke made me LOL--up until that point I hadn't even made the connection) were a wonderful couple. They both had so much to work through on their own before they could become a real couple, though, and I loved that it was Jack who was the first to really make progress in that direction and that it was also him who saw their not real relationship as something more. Rose, Rose, Rose--oh goodness, that girl's issues had issues. She took us right to the end there--even while I was yelling at her not to believe what she believed, Ms. Helm made me believe that Rose's errors in thinking had genuine roots in her past--and yep, when her big crisis came there were tears over here, I'll freely admit. But that HEA--wonderful! If you've read the first book in this series, seeing Alex and Becca here will reassure you that things are going well for them, and if you've read Ms. Helm's Big Sky Cowboys series, you'll see many of its characters playing roles here as well (Rose is Outlaw Cowboy Delia's sister). If you haven't read all--or any!--of those books, though, this really is Rose and Jack's story and would work just fine on its own. I can't promise you won't want to read the others ASAP, though--goodness knows I'm counting the days until Gabe's book ( Cowboy SEAL Christmas ) is released :) Rating: 4 1/2 stars / A I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

Cowboy SEAL Redemption is a wonderful story about moving beyond the past and embracing the future. Jack is a wounded man both in body and spirit. He was discharged from the Navy after being injured in Afghanistan. He is also trying to get past a terrible betrayal while deployed. He has moved to Revival Ranch in Montana at the invitation of a fellow SEAL. There he meets a young bar owner named Rose who has a past that has made her cynical of the world, specifically men. The two meet and strike a bargain to exchange favors: he needs a temporary fake fiancee and she wants extra security at her bar on weekends. What follows is a very realistic love story that does not happen overnight. This book follows Jack and Rose over several months as they journey to rediscover themselves and learn how to trust in love. This novel was well-written with wonderfully human characters who struggle with doubts, fears and hope. Each finds a support system of family and friends surrounding them. I was moved by the wounds suffered by Jack and Rose and cheered their triumphs as they found their HEA ending!

The author has once again drawn the reader into the lives of three Veterans, following their acclimation to life outside of the service with staggering injuries suffered during deployment. The characters are well developed, the traumas heartbreaking while the therapeutic aspects of the story demonstrates that healing is possible with the acceptance for the help needed during the healing process...both emotional and physical. This ARC book was complimentary, provided by the Publisher and NetGalley. I am voluntarily providing my honest review.

Highly entertaining, sweetly sexy, emotionally thrilling romantic journey that took them both by complete surprise in the best kinda way...... Jack Armstrong is a tough, sweet, charming and determined retired SEAL recovering from a career ending injury and not really looking forward to his family invading his privet life. So he strikes a bargain and gets so much more than he was looking for.... Rose Rogers is a strong, sassy, sweet and sexy avenging angel... loved her grit and heart. Could not put down this engaging and action packed romance was a extremely fun read.

This is book 2 in the Navy Seal Cowboys series. I would recommend reading the 1st book just so you know the background of the main characters and how they came to be where they are. It is explained in more detail in book 1 than in book 2. This one is about Jack Armstrong and bar owner Rose Rogers. Jack is trying to deal with his new normal after being injured and what happened in his personal life. Part of that was moving to Montana with his teammates and leaving his family behind. But not his family is coming to visit and he has to not only deal with them but deal with the issues he never faced or dealt with before becoming injured. To try to show his family he has moved on he and Rose make the deal of her acting as his fake girlfriend in exchange for him acting as an informal bouncer at her bar for her. Rose doesn't trust men. After everything that happened to her and her sisters she doesn't believe that there are any out there for her. And now with the past coming back to haunt her present she really doesn't want to have to deal with anyone, let alone a damaged man. But what neither realize is that they both need each other. In the best way possible. I loved this book! Jack is definitely struggling and it isn't just because of his injury. There is so much more going on that makes him question himself and where he is going that you can't help but hurt for him. Especially when you find out what his "family" did! And Rose, omg Rose! I loved her to start with but then when you find out what happened to her and her sisters, it breaks your heart to no end. This book made me cry in spots, made me laugh in others, and definitely made me wish the characters were a little more violent in yet others! My feelings were all over the place and I loved every minute of it! Especially towards the end when you realize just how much Rose will do to make sure the people she loves are protected and happy! This book was a great read!

Great book 2 in this series and is just such good story telling. Jack & Rose are both so damaged from their pasts it seems they are meant for each other. My heart runneth over with emotion as I watched these two amazing people with extreme chemistry heal and overcome their pasts to set forth on a beautiful future together.

This was a fantastic book filled with an amazing story and characters that will steal your heart. Rose and Jack are both slightly damaged and prepared to go through life just as they are. After leaving the SEAL's Jack and his buddies have been busy setting up the ranch that will someday be a place for veterans to land before working their way back into the world. He's rough and gruff and maybe a little scary. The one person he doesn't scare is the tough as nails bar owner Rose. With his family hounding him to get back to living and dating he convinces Rose to pretend to be his girlfriend just long enough to convince them he's fine. Of course though what starts out as a fake relationship soon begins to feel too real. When these two tough people let the walls down and give them a chance? I highly recommend this one!

After having to say goodbye to the career he thought he'd have forever Jack Armstrong is struggling a bit to find his way, his injury means he must start over, find a whole new career path, and having to do so while also trying to readjust to civilian life is almost more than he can handle. Now he finds out that his family is coming for a visit, with his ex-fiance and traitorous brother in tow, and that whole situation is still a thorn in his side, his own brother stole his fiance right out from under him... and it still stings a little more than he cares to admit. So he decides to strike up a deal with bar owner Rose Rogers, he needs a fake girlfriend and she needs a little muscle to keep the riffraff in her bar under control...so a plan is hatched, and these two wind up finding a whole lot more than they bargained for! Rose Rogers is about as anti-man as one can get, she has been burned too many times to willing trust one, but then she has never met a man quite like Jack. When Jack saunters into her bar, asks her to play his loving girlfriend while his family is visiting, she can't help but want to help him out. But she isn't willing to offer up her services without getting a little something in return, so she counteroffers with a job, and they both get what they want... and a whole lot more!! I loved Jack & Rose's story... it had just the right amounts of everything a good romance read should have; it was steamy, sweet, funny, and good for the heart! When I met Alex in the first installment I didn't think I could love a character more, but after spending time with Jack I can now say Alex has some serious competition, there is just something about a wounded soldier that speaks to my heart! I really think Ms. Helm has found her niche here with creating redemption stories for these SEAL's, each story comes with an captivating story line, endearing characters that you can help but feel for and fall for, and touching message that is felt deep in the heart! I highly recommend you add this one to your reading list, it's a can't miss story that will squeeze your heart and leave you with an unwavering smile!

He's done running when things get tough, and he's determined to prove―once and for all―that even the most troubled hearts can find their way to redemption. My Thoughts A Navy Seal is required, among other things, to be brave, resilient and able to overcome things most of us never dream of facing in our day to day comfortable lives. Having ones life turned upside down normally does not include watching a friend die and almost dying right along with him. Jack Armstrong had to live through both of these traumas and now along with his remaining team members finds himself embracing a life as foreign to them as being dropped in the midst of a war zone would be to you or I. Starting over seemed like something Jack should have been an old hand at, having had his life disrupted before was a shock but this new chapter is even harder to handle for many reasons. Sometimes being strong means leaning on someone else's strength. Jack Armstrong never had anyone he could lean on before, but now he has Rose Rogers and her strength is more than enough to help him finally start to heal. In the past Rose has never been able to draw comfort or feel cared for by a man, however now Jack has shown her that he is able to provide both caring and comfort. If she lets him that is. While enjoyed first book featuring Alex and Becca this second story with Jack and Rose was an even better reading experience for me. My only complaint is it is over because read it too fast!
