[Blog Tour Review]: "The Navy SEAL's Promise"

The Navy SEAL's Promise by Soraya Lane
Genre: Contemporary Romance (Military)

With only 48 hours back on home soil for Christmas, United States Army Corporal Saskia Cullen is desperate to spend every minute with her young son. So when heavy snowfall closes JFK airport and she misses her connecting flight, she’s devastated. Until Navy SEAL Luke Gray offers to keep her company… and then does everything within his power to get her home.

Luke is back in the US on leave, waiting to hear the details of his next mission, and Saskia proves to be a pleasant distraction. And when he hears that she needs to get home to see her son, he’s prepared to do anything to help the sexy single mom. Trouble is, he hadn’t planned on falling for anyone, let alone a beautiful soldier about to return overseas.

My Review:

Who doesn't love a military romance? How about one where the hero AND heroine are both in the military? Bonus!

Saskia is on leave for Christmas—but she only has a few hours to spend with her son before she has o return to base. When bad weather hits and threatens to strand her at an airport, her worst fears come to life: missing this rare chance to see her boy...

Luke, a Navy SEAL and fellow passenger on Saskia's plane, can't help but intervene. He makes a promise, to himself and to her, that he will get her home to her son, even if he has to carry her there! Luckily he manages to “borrow” a military Humvee, and off they go!

But can the keep their hands off each other during the journey home? Of course not! :) This makes for a Humvee scene that I'm sure many have never even thought of!

Luke makes good on his promise, but all too soon they both have to get back. It'll be hard to keep up a relationship when they both have missions and duties to do, but this doesn't seem to be just a fling, and both are willing to make the promise to try.

The Navy SEAL's Promise was a wonderful, sweet romance; I loved the idea of the story, and Luke was a very nice hero. No complaints here!

I can only imagine how hard it must be to have both partners in a relationship in the military. One is bad enough, but both? Finding common time to meet as well as worrying about each about a bump in the road to HEA! But I loved it, it was my first time reading such a story, and I think Soraya Lane did a wonderful job.

4 STARS! My only real complaint is that the book (novella) was too short, and the few days that it covered seemed to move very fast. I wanted more! I wanted to learn more about Luke and Saskia, even her son. But what was there was very good, a quick tale of love. I will definitely be adding Ms. Lane to my list!

I received a copy of this book from the tour host in exchange for my honest opinion.


Until Next Time,
