seal’s honor, by elle james

seal's honoringredients:
Drama, humor, and action.

If you like a predictable military story with a fair amount of s*x, get your hands on this one.






Tuck is a the leader of a top-notch Navy SEAL team and Delaney, aka Razor, is one of the very few female Army pilots flying at all, let alone extraction missions. They both agree that being involved with each other is something that can’t be discovered by either of their teams/military brethren and neither is interested in a long-term relationship. After all, with the types of missions they’re involved in, no one is promised tomorrow.

But not all of Tuck’s teammates have that same philosophy. Cory, aka Reaper, not only disagrees with Tuck’s don’t get too close way of thinking, but he too sees what is so special about Delaney and isn’t afraid to show it. And Reaper being Tuck’s best friend, doesn’t help the already tenuous situation.

With marriage proposals, crew losses, and injuries this is an action-packed novel; and a brief one too. The story is very predictable and the characters could use a bit more depth, especially Tuck. Because the book is so short, it doesn’t give you a chance to really get to know and like them so you’re not very vested in what happens to them.

I had the pleasure of meeting the author of Seal’s Honor at a book convention and she was so awesome in person that I downloaded the book as we were standing in line for a session. As such, it pains me that I couldn’t write a more stellar review for the book. It’s the first in a series and I can only hope that the others get better as the stories progress. However, I myself will cease and desist with this book.

difficulty level:
Medium. There was an annoyance factor with this book, primarily due to the hero’s behavior, which made it difficult to read at times.
