That was then—this is now.
When a woman from his past shows up on his doorstep, Navy SEAL Trent Wagner isn’t sure what to expect. The little sister of his best friend back in high school, Lyla Torres is all grown up now and even more beautiful than he remembered. He’d always had a thing for her back then, but that damn bro code meant she was off limits.
Before Trent can act on the sparks that obviously still exist between them, he’s going to have to use his SEAL training to help find her brother. His old friend has messed up his life since they were teenagers, getting into drugs and doing some time in jail, and now he’s missing. Trent knows it’s not a good idea to get involved in someone else’s problems, especially when they could end up getting both him and Lyla thrown into prison—or killed. But Trent has never been able to say no to a beautiful woman, especially one he’s had a crush on since high school.

SEAL stories are some of my favorite. If you are looking for just another I-can't-handle-his-job book, you won't find it here. Ms. Tyler has a great knack for writing Alpha males with real personality. The ones who don't have to prove their masculinity. Lyla is a strong woman who knows what she wants to do and is doing it. She isn't afraid to go for what she wants. And hey, they actually talk about issues instead of just keeping them inside. Trent didn't like down time. The Navy decided he had too much accumulated leave and had to take some. He didn't have any idea what he'd do, that is until a face from the past turned up at his door. His friend's little sister wasn't so little anymore. He'd thought of her often now she was here. Why? Lyla's brother was missing. How could he say no? Drugs, prison, bad characters, didn't matter. Helping and being with her did. He'd even face his folks and listen to their feelings about his life. Things are going just fine until her brother's problems are much worse than they thought. Bad enough to endanger Lyla. Their little trip turned into much more. A rescue mission. The bad guys were really bad. Could he handle it alone? Don't miss this amazing, jam-packed story into these pages. There is steam, emotions, humor, and characters you can root for.

Back home after a perilous mission in Iraq, Navy SEAL Trent Wagner is told to take two weeks off. The problem is, Trent doesn’t know what to do with a vacation. He was taking it easy at home with friend and colleague Nash and waiting for the pizza delivery, but it’s a gorgeous woman who is knocking at the door. She’s Lyla Torres, the little sister of Trent’s high school friend, Marco. Marco had fallen in with the wrong crowd, has gone to prison, but it seems that he’s been clean for a while, and is now a successful sculptor. However, Lyla’s visit is not a casual one: Trent has vanished and since Trent knows Marco, he’s the most likely one to help her. Lyla had a crush on Trent, and Trent liked her a lot, but Lyla being two years younger, he never acted on his attraction, besides, Lyla is Marco’s sister. Trent agrees to go back to his home in San Antonio to look for Marco, and Lyla asks him to sleep in her guest room, and not bother with a hotel room. Paige starts TEXAS SEAL with a bang: the beginning is the exciting rescue of missionaries in Iraq, and I loved all the details about the equipment they use. Trent is so sweet, he doesn’t rush Lyla into anything, it was also very nice to see them have conversations and not remain stubbornly silent. I just loved the Torres family dynamics! TEXAS SEAL is a terrific suspense, and a very exciting ending, and although I knew going in that it was a novella, it the suspense angle was so fabulous, that I would have wanted a longer book. And I loved Erika’s protector! There is no cliffhanger, but I loved the characters so much, that I would like to see what happens to them afterwards.
