Judging a Book by it's Cover:
Naked torso, wearing dog tags. Closed posture. Monochromatic tones with a bold, bright title. Nothing exceptionally eye-catching or unique. Synopsis tells of a wounded warrior, assumedly suffering PTSD & I am a sucker for that type of plot.
Third-person POV. Some graphic, violent flashbacks of what resulted in extreme / severe injuries.
Dec is a SEAL for life. Maura is a gymnast at heart. They live next to one another and share a balcony. He rescues her during a swift-moving storm and a relationship develops. Both characters have strong and positive attributes. Their chemistry is saccharine sweet, enough so to get a toothache from. The secondary characters are a motley crew, whether his teammates or the gym staff and members. Dialogue is very good, interaction is mostly believable. The plot is full and dynamic. The story flowed smoothly and easily. I had just the slightest issue with Maura's complete lack of reaction when she found Dec home from his mission. In that, there was so very little conflict with the way they seemed to gel almost too cohesively. Minor conflicts were presented, but mostly they were self-imposed obstacles and the other person near-always knew just what to say or do to motivate or inspire the other to overcome the hurdle before them. Predictability was virtually nonexistent. The conclusion is mostly solid although I would have loved to have known how Maura fared in her first competition and the outcome of Giger's prediction.
Overall, I felt it was a strong enough story and was fully capable of standing on it's own. I've not read any of the previous books to this series and never once did I feel lost or at a disadvantage.Read more ›
I saved the book until the date of the review got closer, lest I forget some of the important details of the story that I would want to include in my review. I started it about 4 days before the review was due so nothing would distract me from the story of Declan Swifton and Maura Maxwell.
With all that being said, honestly I could only give A Seal Forever 3 stars. The first 1/2 of the book read really fast but told me absolutely zero about the romantic relationship that was supposed to have been brewing between these next door neighbors who had the hots for one another. Declan Swifton (why doe s the blurb call him Declan Smith?) was a SEAL, of course. The book talks a lot about that; describes in great detail a lot of his training, his missions, his relationships with his brothers-in-arms. Maura owns, or is about to own, a gym. She is a former gymnast and parkour expert. (I had to google that.) The book spends some time at her gym, we see a glimpse of some of the people at the gym, a few of the kids and parents and at one point the gym gets vandalized.
There is just too much of everything and not enough of anything. If that makes any sense at all. I felt it was a little... disjointed? The main characters were developed but not in the sense that I needed them to be. I mean, what did they look like? Hair color, eye color, body style?Read more ›
The characters in this story were quite interesting to get to know. The hero left me giggling more than once while the heroine was quite easy to connect with. Although I enjoyed the characters and their story, the complete role reversal mid story threw me for a bit of a loop. It works perfectly with the plot and was intensely rewarding, but took me a minute to get into.
Although the 3rd novel in the series it read well as a standalone as well. This was my first novel by Anne Elizabeth, but it has sparked my interest and I’ll definitely be reading more in the future.
Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this work in exchange for an honest review.
Declan enjoys 3 things — his SEAL brothers, the sea and sampling the many delights of women who want nothing from him but a good time. Master Chief Swifton lives for each mission, supporting his swim partner and team. He has no other family or commitments and likes it that way.
Maura is a former gymnast whose bid for the Olympics was cut short by a car crash which left one of her friend’s dead and caused significant damage to her arms and torso. She’s test driving a gym for six months with the option to buy it and has been gone on her oh-so-sexy neighbor since the second she saw him. But, she’s a bit shy, much more reserved than she was in her teens, and very tongue-tied.
The two are thrown together when Dec jumps into the ocean to save Maura from drowning during a turbulent storm. He carries her in, dries her and puts her in a warm bath, trying to revive the very pale woman.
She sees it as a wake-up call and vows to turn things around, be bolder, go after what she wants, and she definitely wants Declan. So, when they meet up running the next day, she asks him to dinner.
Turns out, there’s something about her he can’t quite get out of his system. He thinks of her a lot, looks forward to their time together and after a while hasn’t grown tired of her — something he usually does after a few “dates.”
Then he gets sent on a mission, one that has too many things go wrong. He wants to back out and try a new plan. He’d outvoted. Things go bad.Read more ›
