This second chance was worth the wait . . .
As a SEAL, Gabriel Donovan did the toughest jobs imaginable without blinking an eye. But three years after his wife's death, the idea of dating still makes him sick to his stomach. His daughter desperately needs a mother, though, and there's nothing Gabe won't do for his little girl.
Stephanie Mason doesn't run from anything. Not even coming face to face with the "one that got away" on a blind date. Steph's body vividly remembers every single thing about Gabe and while some things have changed, the way he makes her feel sure as hell hasn't.
Gabe and Steph know that love comes with risks, but if they're brave enough, this second chance might just bring them the love of a lifetime.
A SEAL'S STRENGTH
The one that got away! ... A sweet reunion they never expected makes getting back out into the dating scene much sweeter for this single dad! It was a quick and easy read ... it probably would have been a bit stronger with a more detailed background or more interaction with their common friends, etc., but an enjoyable read none the less!
Gabriel Donovan is in no way, shape or form ready to be going on a blind date. His wife might have died three years ago, and yes, he misses sex like you wouldn't believe, but his heart's just not in it. To appease his daughter and sister, he agrees to let his friend's wife set him up in her little dating business she's working on ... but he's not going to enjoy this at all!
Stephanie Mason can't believe who her blind date is! Best friends with benefits in college led to him moving away before she got the guts to tell him that she was in love with him. She's thought of him often ... remembered and wondered if she'd ever find that feeling again. Now he's in front of her with more baggage than she could pick up if she wanted to ... but they could have just one weekend ... right?
Emotional and Steamy Ride
A Seal’s Strength (Military Match Book 2) by J.M. Stewart
This is Gabriel “Gabe” Donovan and Stephanie “Steph” Mason’s story.
This is an emotional second chance romance. Steph and Gabe were more than friends in college. Due to circumstances Gabe drifted away from her.
Gabe still hasn’t gotten back into dating since his wife died. His friends and daughter tell him it’s time to start living again.
Steph was hurt when she and Gabe lost contact. She wants to be able find the “one”. But is having trouble trusting after the disaster of her last relationship.
Steph and Gabe are reunited through a blind date. The chemistry is still really strong between them. Will they be able to let their guards down and take a chance on live?
There was just something about Gabe and Steph’s characters that pulled me in. I could feel their emotions whether sad or happy. At times I wanted to smack some sense into them but they figured it out on their own. Loved their story!
FYI, contains mature and graphic content. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book
A SEAL's Strength is a fantastic second chance story. I just loved these characters and the honest and real way they connected with other. The story is amazing and wonderfully written with a nice easy pace to the story.
Gabriel Donovan is a former SEAL who is working hard to raise his young daughter after his wife's death. It's been three years and his daughter and sister have decided enough is enough and signed him up on a dating website. Now he's about to meet his date and can't believe his eyes. Before him is Krista Nelson, a woman he was close to in college and has never been able to forget. This reunion could go terribly bad or it could be the best thing to ever happen!!
I highly recommend this one for everyone's must read list!
