"Elizabeth's third SEAL novel is as delightful as the two before it, with a sexy romance and super-hot concept. The story, following an almost-too-hot-to-handle Navy SEAL and woman he wants to make his for good, can be seriously sexy-and Elizabeth really knows how to tell such a story." - RT Book Reviews, 4 Stars
"Along with the love story, Elizabeth shows the camaraderie within the very funny and devoted SEAL brotherhood." - Booklist

I loved Declan (I have a thing for the military guys!). But he was a great character to connect with and to see the struggles that he had to go through. It was hold your breath is he going to make it good. I had to keep reading to find out what happened. He was truly the hero of the book for me. Maura was great as well. To see her develop and then work/push Declan was the best.
This book had me laughing and giggling to myself and out loud and then crying the next.
I totally got Maura and the being shy. Not wanting to connect and yet connecting without even trying. That draw you to someone can be hard to resist. I cannot imagine living next to my magnetic pull. The way that these two characters compliment each other was great to read. They pushed and pulled. Maura was a great heroine with great accomplishments. You truly have to be someone amazing, strong, independent, and comfortable with yourself to make it through the hardest of time with another person or even the deployments. I would say more but it would give away the story.
I find myself wanting to know more about what happens to them. Where do things go after the conclusion of the book. It is a must read in my book. But I am a sucker for military romance books.
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? The storyline flowed too fast but none of the points connected for me. They had a good sex life, until they didnt. Declan was depressed until he wasnt. Maura was scared to death to own the gym and then she was ready RIGHT NOW. It just didnt flow for me.
One big highlight, though. The author really knows her stuff about the Navy SEALS. I feel that I took away a lot of knowledge that I have never gotten in any of the other books I have read about them. Maybe because she is married to an honest-to-God retired SEAL (lucky, lucky lady) and she has lived the life but I always feel flattered when an author takes the time to do the research or put the genuine facts into a work and not just fill the book with some feel good fluff. Thank you Anne Elizabeth for that.
Im sure there are a lot of readers who will love this book and for them it will be a over-the-top 5 star read. I am going to look for more books by this author because I think she really knows her stuff and I probably just picked a book that I wasnt compatible with.
*Thank you Netgalley, Anne Elizabeth and Marissa from Sourcebooks for the opportunity to read/review this book*
The story surrounds Maura Maxwell who is trying to rebuild her life after a terrible car accident. She was going to be a career gymnast but everything changed with the crash. Declan Swifton has spent his living and preparing for SEAL life. To him, that is life until he rescues a drowning Maura and he starts to question his carefree life of keeping fit and one night women.
I found this story to be one of those cute little stories that you knew what was going to happen but the fun of it was watching it all unfold and seeing how they held each other up in the bad times and just how good they were together. The dynamics of the book was a little on the soft side at times but still a great book to read.
