Book Description

Book #1 in the Out of Uniform series (Heat of the Moment) by Elle Kennedy is available
for FREE! Find it here:

It's all about the thrill...

An Out of Uniform story

As a Navy SEAL, Matt O'Connor specializes in Bad Boy. At least, that's what he thinks...until he finds himself face down on the floor during a bank robbery, arguing with a sexy, bad-girl blonde who wields her sharp tongue with surgical precision.

Just like that, Matt begins to wonder if maybe the idea of settling down with one woman isn't as crazy as he thought.

Savannah Harte is addicted to first kisses and whirlwind romances. Once the thrill is gone, though, she's outta there. She's eager to follow the adrenaline rush she feels with Matt into the nearest bed, but when tangled sheets begin to feel like tangled heartstrings, her first instinct is to cut him loose. There's only one problem: Matt's not going anywhere. And not even a steamy threesome seems to dull her growing feelings.

Which leaves Savannah having to decide what she wants more. The casual thrill of now...or the scary thrill of forever.

Warning: This title features a hot threesome with explicit sex, a bad-girl heroine, and two Navy SEALs guaranteed to make you sweat.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed April 6, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was very disappointed with this one. I have all the others but this was my least favorite. I was really excited to be getting Matt's story. He seemed, from the last book, like the strong manly type but throughout this book he was written as tongue tied and nervous.

One thing that really ruined this one for me was Savannah. She came across to me as a bit of a (bad word deleted). Too much casual sex before she gets together with Matt. *Spoiler* i also hated hearing the H tell the h that he loved her after watching his friend have sex with her. He didn't seem comfortable with it either so it didn't make for a hot twist in the relationship.

Finally, I like there to be a bit of wholesome-ness to my heroines and she was completely lacking in it. She was written as too easy (IMO) and there was nothing that we found out about her that gave her character depth or made me see her as anything more than an easy lay (sorry for the less than pretty term.)

The only thing that gave it 2 stars for me was just having Matt in the story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nonstop laughs and HOT, HOT, HOT April 6, 2011
By Beck
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I couldn't stop laughing at the humor between Matt O'Connor & Savannah Harte. The humor between them is exactly how my husband and I act, so it was nice to see we aren't the only ones :) I absolutely loved that Matt found his match in Savannah. If I had to complain about anything it would be the length. I love the Out of Unifrom series and always hate when each one ends.

4.0 out of 5 stars 4.5 blue ribbons from Romance Junkies July 7, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Navy SEAL Matt O'Connor's never had any problems in the dating department - until now. While on leave he had the misfortune of being in a bank during a robbery trading jibes with a sexy blonde lying on the floor near him. There's no denying she's an extremely attractive woman, but she shot down his offer for a date - and he couldn't even induce her into accepting his offer for a little comfort sex. He's seriously slipping - especially considering she got away from him by pointing at the sky and saying "I think the bat-signal's calling you" ... and he actually looked!

Savannah Harte doesn't do commitments. She's a proud businesswoman running her own flower shop and that's plenty of commitment for her. What she does do is hot sex with one partner at a time. Dating more than one man is well... tacky. Unfortunately at the time of the bank robbery she was already seeing a surfer she'd met the week before so that meant that no matter how sexy Matt is, the answer is still `no.'

What neither Matt nor Savannah anticipates is divine intervention in the form of his friend Annabelle Holmes, whose search for a florist to provide flowers for Prestige Events clients' events brings her to Harte to Harte Flowers - and she dragged Matt along for company. Fortunately for Matt, he behaves like a shy schoolboy - all thumbs and tongue tied, which Savannah finds sexy and she even agrees to a date. However, she makes it clear that she doesn't have time or interest in traditional dating or long term relationships - she wants fun casual flings with no strings and no promises. For the first time in his life Matt is thinking more in terms of happily-ever-after and his own attitude is being thrown back in his face.

1.0 out of 5 stars Very disappointed... February 13, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have enjoyed the series. However, Matt's story was very disappointing. Savannah was totally unlikeable. I love romances, because of happy endings. Yet for the first time, I would have been more satisfied if Matt had told her to get lost. He deserved better. This story doesn't even qualify as a, sure, romance, NOT!

3.0 out of 5 stars Ok for what it's trying to be July 4, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Read this story for the sex scenes. They're pretty awesome. The plot isn't complex but that isn't what this book is trying to provide. My only objection is the premise at one point that you are being selfless and truly loving if you engage in a threesome with the woman you love. Call me old-fashioned but I don't buy it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Nit picky September 29, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Ok...I am really enjoying this series and know this is extremely nit picky but a person's bicep is not in their forearm. The other thing...I do not believe the author has ever been to San Diego or Coronado. There is no sand on Coronado beaches that is powdery and white and the water is never warm. The beaches have regular old sand or dark sand with sparkles (mica) in it. I truly enjoyed other aspects but when it comes to inaccurate facts it is hard to forget them.

5.0 out of 5 stars great read, love this series April 17, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have read all the books in this series and have enjoyed them all. This book was one of my favorites. I love how Matt chases after Savannah and how she tries to keep him distant but just can't seem to do that. I very much enjoyed the fun & games between these two. And I always love when past character come up in the book. Defiantly looking forward to the next book in the series.
