Men are born. Warriors are made. Honor is earned.
I was sixteen years old when I first heard those words from my best friend's father. The Vice Admiral took me in, taught me about integrity, and gave me what I'd never had—a family.
But it wasn't just my best friend and his father who changed my life.
The emerald-eyed blonde with an innocent smile stopped me dead in my tracks. Wanting to be a man worthy of her, I enlisted and became a SEAL. Except not even the Trident I'd earned changed the fact that she was the Vice Admiral's daughter and my best friend's much younger sister. She was strictly off-limits.
Then tragedy struck, and I found myself in the one position I never should've let happen—with my arms around her. Now I had one objective.
Code name: Alpha.

This is the prequel to Alpha, a Navy Seals series. This book lays the ground work for book 1 and the foundation for the romance between Adam and Emmy. The 11-year age gap while unexpected is not implausible. The writing is quick and fluid, the military references are well placed; although the use of the terms “I got your six; or FUBAR” seemed a little overdone or cliched at times.
All of that said, I did find myself submerged in the story and becoming drawn into the primary character development and introductions of the supporting characters. By the time I reached the end, I was panting for the climax, Billy was dead and now Emmy is alone. I think I am well and truly ensnared. We’ll see with the next Adam’s story.
Sybil-I am truly sorry for your loss.
This might’ve been good, except…
It borders on grooming and pedophilia. In this day and age, why??
This is a short prequel to the upcoming Alpha. It was a great introduction and I can’t wait for the first book in this new series.
