Vikki’s Musings

I met Sharon Hamilton at A Day with the Authors in Nashville, Tennessee where she was the key-note speaker. I had read the first four books in the SEAL Brotherhood Series and enjoyed them immensely. After talking with Ms. Hamilton, I agreed to review the audio version of Book 5, Cruisin’ For a SEAL, for an honest review. I also had the opportunity to meet J.D. Hart, the narrator of this deliciously sexy addition to this awesome series.

Mark Beale has arrived in Savona, Italy. His SEAL team are taking a Mediterranean cruise where they plan to scatter the ashes of their good friend Gunny, the late owner of the gym they all go to back in San Diego. While spending time with his teammates and their wives at a local café, he sees a stunning brown-eyed beauty and for the first time in months, his libido kicks in with a vengeance. When she approaches him and leads him away from the café to her apartment, he follows with barely a moment’s hesitation.

After spending the afternoon having the most fulfilling sexual encounter of his life, they part the same way they met, at the piazza. As he watches her drift away, he feels the same coldness he’s felt since Sophie’s death. For one glorious afternoon he had lost himself in the arms of this mysterious stranger, a woman whom he does not even know her name.

When he discovers she is a dancer on the cruise ship the next day, he wonders if fate has stepped in. Is there any chance that the amazing feelings he is developing for the beautiful Sophia could turn into a love that will rival the relationships his buddies have found?

Cruisin’ For a SEAL has all the ingredients of an erotic tale with plenty of hot SEALs and a lot of steamy sex with a dash of romantic suspense thrown into the mix. I enjoyed Mark’s character a great deal and was glad to see him find his ‘happily ever after’. While I grew to like Sophia’s character as the book progressed, it took me aback when I found out she was engaged to another. I did like that the couple refrain from giving into their passion until after Sophia made the decision that she could not marry her fiancée. Of course once she made that decision, the sex between the pair had my ears burning.

J.D. Hart has one of the sexiest voices I have had the pleasure of listening to. And wow, just wow! He handled all the different accents of this huge cast of characters, bringing a distinct voice tone for each one of them. So many times, I have a hard time with the female voices when a male is reading, but Mr. Hart gave Sophia’s character a sultry, feminine quality. I will definitely be looking for more books narrated by him. Oh, and did I mention he looks as sexy as he sounds?

If you are looking for a highly erotic love story with romantic suspense elements and an awesome hero, then you will love Cruisin’ For a SEAL by Sharon Hamilton. I can’t wait to read the next book in this exciting series! I’ve been warned that I will need a fan to cool myself down. That’s hard to imagine because there’s plenty of hot, hot sex throughout this book. Happy reading!
