The Poseidon team are hard-bodied, fiercely competitive navy SEALs. But when a sensitive mission goes disastrously wrong, three of the team’s finest will have to trust their hearts and instincts to uncover the truth…

“No man left behind” is inscribed in the DNA of every SEAL and Lieutenant Diego Torres is no exception. But with a team member killed—and the body missing—Diego's honor is sorely tested. Now his career and reputation are on the line, and a traitor is hiding among them. Diego wants answers…and only one woman has them.

Single mom Harper Maclean has two priorities—raising her son Nathan and starting a new life. Her mysterious new neighbor may be impossibly charming, but Diego asks too many questions about her past—and about the father of her child. Questions she fears will reveal her burning attraction for Diego, and ultimately put them all in danger’s path.

Review:


This book follows Harper who is a single mother raising her son while working fulltime as an interior decorator.  Harper had a very rough start to her life especially when her son came into the picture it continued to stay hard, but she worked hard to get to where she is today and doesn’t want anything to mess that up.   The book also follows Diego a career military man.   Diego also had a rough start in life, but worked through a lot of his issues while being in the military.   Diego’s job is to watch Harper to see if her ex and father of her son will show up.   Diego is all about the job.  

Harper by far was my favorite character in this book.  She was such a strong independent woman who has very specific goals in her life.    Harper is completely focused on her son and making a better life for her son.  She doesn’t get easily distracted it seems even if her friend wants her to meet new guys Harper doesn’t want to jeopardize her son in anyway.   Harper takes some time to open up in the book to all of her issues and the author does a great job peeling them back one at a time.  She really opens up during the book and makes her feel so real and vulnerable.   Harper appeared to be a very genuine character and someone that was relatable.

Diego is a very interesting character in the book.  I feel he is a little harder to read.  He does open up a little bit during the book, but he seems all job all the time.  I guess he is in a different mindset since he is really there to complete a mission.  We do get bits and pieces of his personality that sneak through, but I feel like he is harder to open up.  Diego does open up to Harper during the book, but I am not sure we get a full picture of what happened to him in his past.

The chemistry!! I loved the romance that the author created between Harper and Diego.  They really had a connection that she built up.  We could see each of them becoming more comfortable with the other one.    They were able to open up to each other during the book and I got to see a lot more growth from each character.   The author created a great dynamic between them and you could see how strong the connection was when a tragedy happened.   

The author did a great job with growing the story.  The story is told form the point of view of Harper as well as Diego so we get a very complete picture.    The author uses a lot of details when describing events, which realty helped me get a complete picture in my mind while reading too.   We get a lot of background in the beginning of the book, but once the action picks up it was hard to put down.  I wanted to know what was going to happen next and I was also hoping for a happy ending with all the romance build up!!

I would suggest this as a nighttime read.  The story was nicely paced and easy to follow along with.  It was a perfect book that you could pick up at any moment and read.  It was a good escape at night after a long day at work.  The story really picked up towards the end, but the beginning was very nicely paced out.

I received a copy of this book from Barclay Publicity for the purpose of providing an honest review.  This does not affect my opinion of this book. 

My Rating: 4/5


Excerpt (for those posting Promotional Spotlights):

First Look:
“You’re the best, mister.” The kid had to get his smile from his mother, Diego decided. Because not once could Diego remember Ramsey’s smile making him want to offer one in return.
“Diego,” he said after a second, figuring talking was better than standing here on the sidewalk, grinning like an idiot. “You can call me Diego.”
“Cool. I’m Nathan. I’m seven. I’m gonna be a stunt­man when I grow up. Or a veterinarian. I’d rather be a Jedi warrior, but Mom says we’ll see about that one. She says that about a lot of stuff. We’ll see. What are you?”
Huh? Was that a question? The kid’s expression said it was, so Diego did a mental replay.
“I’m in security,” he said, using the cover Savino had decided on.
“Bet you’re good at it.” Grabbing the bike by the han­dles, the kid gave it a good shake, then grinned when the chain stayed in place. “You’re good at fixing things, too. Maybe you could teach me to fix some things?”
Diego didn’t have much experience with kids—hell, he didn’t have any experience. Despite that, he had to figure this one was something special.
Before he could answer him, a delivery truck rum­bled its way to a stop in front of the kid’s house. Some­thing he’d noticed was a regular occurrence. At least once, sometimes twice a day.
“You sure get a lot of deliveries,” he observed, watching a guy in shorts carry a stack of boxes toward the door.
“Yeah. Mom gets tons of stuff. She decorates for peo­ple’s houses. She orders pillows and bowls and things like that. Sometimes she gets material and things to help her decide colors.”
Convenient. Or it would be if Ramsey were run­ning drugs or stolen goods—that’d be a solid cover. But unless he’d shipped himself home in an ash can, it probably wasn’t pertinent. Lansky would claim oth­erwise, though, so Diego made a note to mention it in his next report.
He caught a flash of something out of the corner of his eye. All it took was a casual glance toward the house to send him rocking back on his heels.
Damn.
Not even signing for a slew of packages and fend­ing off the flirtations of the delivery guy were enough to keep Harper Maclean from sending her son a pro­tective frown.
So far his glimpses of her had been at a longer dis­tance than the twenty feet currently separating them. Her photos didn’t do her justice. He’d known she was a looker, but no way he’d have thought fully dressed in person could trump that bikini shot, even if that bikini shot had been kind of blurry.
He’d have been wrong.
