Second Chance SEAL (The Girl He Left Behind – second chance)
Navy SEAL Damon Hamblin’s life is in turmoil after he’s served with divorce papers during his last deployment. He crashes into a sleepy Florida Gulf Coast town to drown his sorrows and just fade into the background, where no one knows him and he can drink, surf and lay out on the beach until his insides heal. The last thing he wants is to rebound into another relationship.
Martel Long came to Sunset Beach five years ago to visit a friend, and never left. She’s tried to forget the man who broke her heart back home, and had been doing a good job of it, until she comes face to face with him at a Bachelorette party for her best friend at a local beach bar.
As sparks fly and old wounds are torn open, the sands at Sunset Beach help to heal a beautiful love story that could have been, and will be again.

Second Chance SEAL is book 2 in the Sunset SEALs series by Sharon Hamilton and a nice addition to this new series.

I received this ebook ARC from the author on the condition that I write an honest review.
Damon had been in love with Martel when they were young, but his feelings for her, terrified him, so he ran off to become a Seal. He never returned to see her.
Martel was left broken hearted by Damon’s disappearance, but then she finds that she is carrying his child. She decides to give the baby up for adoption, but ten years later, she wants to see her daughter, and make her aware that she loved her all these years.
Damon and Martel meet up at a friends wedding, after ten years apart. They re-establish their former relationship, and fall madly in love. She goes to see him in California, after he returns from a tour with his Seal team. They continue their relationship, and Martel reveals the truth about his/her daughter. They obtain their HEA and make plans to marry.
I’ve read several books written by Sharon Hamilton, and I’ve loved everyone of them. She writes characters that are true to believe, flaws and all. The story usually has some suspense in it, but above all, there is always love. I always recommend her books.
