REVIEW: A SEAL’s Proposal – Tawny Weber

A SEAL's Proposal

4 STARS!

A sexy but sweet story about Sam Morelli and Bryanna Spencer, who had been crushing on each other for years, long before they started their relationship a couple of years ago.

Sam is going through training to achieve his dream of becoming a Navy SEAL … following in both his and Bryanna’s brothers footsteps.  He took an oath with the gang of guys when he was a young teenager that once he became a SEAL, he would make that his life and not have the added “baggage” of a relationship.

Bryanna knows about the pact, and knows Sam is getting close to achieving his dream, so she turns on the charm while he’s home this time.  Surely if she seduces him JUST right, he won’t be able to walk away from her.

Will Sam indeed break her heart and walk away, or will he learn that love doesn’t have to be something that holds him back from his dreams?
