This is a novella tying up the SEALs of Steel series.

A prosthetic design engineer, Kat Greenwald is in love with Badger Horley. The former SEALs team leader is the love of her life. But she's seen and heard firsthand of the fears and commitment issues Badger and his closest friends--once part of Navy special operations teams--struggle with on a daily basis. During their weekly get-togethers, the women in love with these former SEALs open up to each other about their longing to tie the knot and start families.

More than two years ago, Badger was badly injured after the truck his eight-man unit were in hit an antitank landmine. While he and his team have finally discovered the truth behind that devastating set-up, Badger sees the reality of his precarious future. His health could decline at any moment and he wants Kat to know exactly where the door to get out is if and when it does. The last thing he wants to do is invite pity, especially where the woman he loves is concerned. In a perfect world, he would have proposed to her the day they met. In the world he lives in, he can only conclude that harboring fears are always better than regrets.

But Kat isn't the type of woman to fear hard times and she's willing to take a leap of faith as far out into the unknown as she can get if it means her most fervent wish comes true.

This novella length read provides a very satisfying wrap-up to this series. A fun and poignant story line offers some drama, surprises and sweetness. I enjoyed it and thought it was very good.

Moving and romantic ending to the series. Kat had a crazy idea about how she could show Badger how much she loved him and that she wasn't going anywhere no matter what issues might arise. She shared her idea with Honey first and then with all the other women who were a part of the lives of Badger's former SEAL team and best friends. They all agreed with Kat that it was a good idea. Badger and his friends had been hurt when their truck hit a landmine. Although, he was better, he knew that could change at any time and he didn't want to burden Kat with his medical issues. How will he respond when Kat put her idea into action?

What a fantastic wrap up to the Seals of Steel! I loved this Novella. Kat has a plan, when she reaches out for help all the other sisters (by seals) jump on board and it becomes a plan for the 7 of them. I loved, loved, loved this. And the ending, the very ending... sigh. Thank you Book Sprout, thank you Dale Mayer, for this arc, my heart approves. All thoughts an opinions are my own and were unsolicited.

OHMYGOSH!!! What a fantastic finish to the series! I loved all the books in this series, and the The Final Reveal was amazing. After all the suffering the ladies went through in the books, and their protective alpha male partners. This was the perfect way to wrap everything up with love. More proof that Dale Mayer is a wonderful author. I received the book as an arc, but loved it so much I had to buy the final reveal.

This is book 8 in the final book in the SEALs of Steel series. This story involves all seven SEALs and their girlfriends but spends more time with Badger and Kat. WOW! All the planning and emotional stress is incredible. I can only imagine how Kat felt. These men have all been medically discharged from the service and are a close knit family. I love how they want to live within walking distance from each other. They’re only trying to decide what to do with the rest of their lives. Leave it to the women to take charge and alter the course of all their lives forever. I love it! I only wish we could have seen each of their reactions to the big reveal. This is a fantastic end to an equally fantastic series. BRAVO! I look forward to reading whatever this author brings us next.

This is a final book in the series and I couldn't have asked for a better way to wrap the series up. With everything this group of SEALs had dealt with seeing them well on their way to HEAs warmed my heart. What Kat and the other ladies have in store for their guys is a daunting task, but one from the heart. If you enjoyed this series I highly recommend reading this novella because it's the perfect touch and gift to readers.

The Final Reveal by Dale Mayer SEALs of Steel Series Book Eight This book is written from Badger and Kat's point of view. They were the first couple in this series. Kat is extremely talented when it comes to creating a unique prosthetic. Badger and his unit go to Kat, as they have all lost at least one limb. Kat has been living in Badger's awesome house for some time. She loves Badger...and his house. And that it has a pool is an extra bonus. It's also a great place for the six other men and their women to come on the weekend for barbecues and swimming. As they sit and unwind from all that has happened over the past six weeks...Kat puts an idea she's had into motion. She wants to marry Badger and knows he'll never want to tie her down to him because of his continued medical issues. So, she's going to plan a wedding and surprise him. Great story. I had happy tears running down my face at the end.

I absolutely loved this book. I was so happy the way things turned out for the characters. The book took all the loose ends and tied them up nicely into an exciting, clever ending. The characters were so awesome in that they seemed so "human" in their actions. The sneakiness between the characters was so funny and lifelike that I could not help but laugh at all the antics. Having the characters act so sneaky was just an awesome way to show that this could actually be a true story even though it is fiction. Loved that after the seriousness of the previous books Dale made this book so fun and included so many happy events. Hope this series continues but if not, what an awesome ending!

This is the conclusion to this exciting, mystery series. This one had no drama or danger or heart stopping moments. It was all a big secret by the women to surprise their men. The men are also working out what they can do with the rest of their lives career wise. A light end after a rather dark series, 7 men and 7 women deserved this ending after all the trauma.

A perfect ending wrapped up beautifully in this series featuring all the men and women of the SEAls of Stell novels starring mainly Kat and Badger, the first couple in this series. Kat wants to surprise Badger and enlists the help of all the women, including Ice and Levi, who all help to organize an epic labour day weekend celebration, keeping the men in the dark....can they pull it off. I LOVED this ending with all the women and men pulling togther, with the women pulling the wool over the eyes of the men while the men thinking they are surprising their women. There’s laughter, nerves, an epic proposal with an epic revealing from the women who will do what it takes to prove that the men in their lives are the one. An ending not to be missed !!! *I voluntarily read an advanced copy and expressed my honest opinion*

I laughed, I cried, I couldn't believe how it came together and it was amazing. I loved it. I loved how everyone pulled together to get it done and well you have to read the book to see what I am blathering about. I do not want to leave any spoilers but it is so hard to put into words how much I loved this and not blow it for people. Dale Mayer has a way with words and can write anything and make it wonderful or scary or haunting. This is a feel good book and the end or is it the beginning of a new series. I know I want to read more about these amazing couples. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

This was a delightful way to wrap up this wonderful series. Having a surprise within a surprise was a very sweet twist. As you read you will delight in how the men interact together as they plan not only their future but also what they believe to be the surprise. You will share the anxiety and hopefulness of the women as they plan what is to be the true surprise to show their “men of steel” how much they love them and are ready to commit to them for life. Of course, the twist at the end will please everyone who has been a long-time fan of this author. I highly recommend this very enjoyable and entertaining finale to this amazing series.

After all the problems these guys have had to deal with this is about their future's, so what they are going to do work wise and then the ladies are wanting to make their guys feel loved and wanted. Worthy of love and commitment. They all know their guys well. It is a great read and one I was a little intrigued with, how were they going to get away with the secrets hiding from these very astute men? The only down i had was after all the build up the main event was fairly short and i myself would have liked a conversation between the couples/or men after just to tie it up a little more tightly. I found this whole series to be fascinating and interesting, lots of twists and turns and suspense. Gripping throughout so I'm glad there hasn't been a long wait between books. This last novella is great as it moves the men on with where they are going from here both with careers and as couples and a team. Fabulous read as always.

The Final Reveal is the final book of the eight book series SEALS of Steel. What a finish! Best of all, it is not a rehash of the previous books. There are just brief glimpses of the past books and the focus is on the here and now of the family of warriors (men and women). We see all 7 SEALS and their ladies, each unique in their strengths and weaknesses, their talents and their fears. I loved the books (stayed up long past bedtime to finish this book) and THE FINAL REVEAL is a fitting topper to this series. I am going to pull out my collection and will be rereading these rich tales in the very near future. Bravo !! Best of all, it is not goodbye but see you later for later books still coming up.
