We don't get to delve too deeply into the characters' lives. I can't say I felt a strong connection to either character. Jack's issues are too easily resolved and there is a quick HEA wrap up.
People looking for a quick beach read will enjoy this book. My issue is that Anne Calhoun is an incredibly talented writer who hasn't yet got the readership base she deserves. Seeing her write a more formulaic story is disappointing. Try her earliest novels (Liberating Lacey, Uncommon Pleasure) and then her more complex ones like Breath on Embers and The List.
The sorrow over the divorce or really the heartbreak of an unsupportive marriage is well done. There is a a couple of twists that are really nice in the plot.
What doesn't work is that everything is rushed so the emotionial connection between the leads feels off. The sex is a bit too fast and out of character as is the hero's over coming of PTSD.
I really like this writer but not this book so much.
Jack still isn't sure whether he can take over the job that his friend (and future brother-in-law) Keenan left in Turkey, because he isn't sure if he can get his nerve back. When he meets Erin and hears of her desire to get a motorbike, he helps her with a difficult salesperson, and proceeds to help her fulfil her list of things he ex-husband convinced her she couldn't do.
Anne Calhoun introduced Jack (by name only), and the town of Lancaster, in "The Rebel's Secret Lover", and it was nice to see Rose and Keenan again. Jack is a touching hero, and Erin a strong heroine, and it is lovely to see the two find their happy ever after.
Like the previous book, this is just a novella, so it's a quick but enjoyable read. The love story is sweet, the sex is hot, and the characters are very likeable.
The one problem I had with the book was the editing of the first chapter. In the first chapter, Jack is driving Rose's BMW 3 series car, then suddenly, he is taking off his helmet and getting off his Ducati motorbike. Not long after this, he thinks back about asking Erin out a few days ago, then within a few paragraphs, he's remembering something that happened at the time he asked her out, and mentions that it was last night. Before the chapter finishes, he gets back into Rose's car and drives to his Grandmother's house, and goes to look at his Ducati, which is in her garage and under a cover. In some ways, this did distract from my enjoyment because I had to keep going back to see if I missed something. This is probably just me.. but I thought in case the author reads her reviews, she may see this and may be able to correct it.
Don't let this put you off because, as I said, it's only in the first chapter, and it's a great short read. I look forward to coming back to Lancaster and its cast of characters
Jack Powell had his future as a SEAL all planned out, although sometimes things don't always go to plan. Now he is forced into the unknown and a life without his safety net of the SEAL's. Deciding to take some college classes whilst he thinks about what to do now, he is drawn in by the college librarian.
It isn't long before Erin and Jack become more than just friends, their relationship is one that had me screaming at them mentally to get their act together. Although it is the challenges and issues that they have which pushes them apart when it should be doing the opposite. Having both been hurt in the past, they are apprehensive about love and what the future can bring, but sometimes you have to be a rebel and take life by the handle-bars to make it what you want.
I loved the library theme of the story, even though it wasn't all set in the library having it featured in the book made me so excited to read about how it comes across in the story between Jack and Erin. I also loved how the story's theme was around second chances and figuring out what to do when life throws you a challenge.
The Seal's Rebel Librarian is a book that is a book lover dream with a library, gorgeous male lead character and a thrilling book about romance outside of the pages of the book. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves books, Seal's (I mean the Navy type not the animal type, although they are cute as well!) and a romance story which is different in the most surprising way possible.
Thrilling, Sexy and Daring.
