Series: Band of Bachelors
Author: Sharon Hamilton
Publisher: AL Publications
Publication Date: 10/09/2015
Synopsis from Goodreads: Full length novel, over 250 pages with bonus material.
Special Operator Lucas Shipley thought his troubles were past him, when he discovers they’ve only just begun. Recently separated from his wife of five years, he gets some unwelcomed news. He thought his living arrangement, with four other separated or divorced buddies from SEAL Team 3, was temporary. Now, he understands he has to move on with his life.
Marcy Gelland is one of the smartest, most successful realtors in San Diego County. She’s hired by Lucas’ soon-to-be ex-wife to help her liquidate their joint holdings and help orchestrate a speedy departure from Lucas’ life. Based on what Marcy’s been told, Lucas deserves any amount of pain she or her client can dish out to him.
But when they are left alone together in the remote Northern California woods, they ignite a personal bonfire that threatens to burn down the whole forest. Marcy is forced to see she has been misled.
Amidst the backdrop of hardened bachelor SEALs with their unsolicited, anti-long- term relationship advice, and a criminal gang operating nearby, Lucas must do what he’s always done and never gotten proper credit for: be the hero that saves the day.
Purchase on Amazon
Being the daughter of a military man (my dad was 21 years Air Force), I have a tendency to be drawn to books that contain any sort of military connection, whether it be Navy SEALS, Army Rangers, or just your run-of-the-mill soldiers in any branch of the military. So when I was given a chance to read a book about a band of Navy SEAL “brothers” I jumped at it.
SEAL Brotherhood: Lucas is a wonderful novel that combines romance, a bit of sexy fun, and a fair bit of military-style action in one book. While the characters aren’t completely fleshed out, they don’t need to be in order for you to enjoy this book. And while this isn’t the first book in the SEAL Brotherhood series, you don’t need to read the others to understand this one – which is awesome because I always hate reading books in a series and realizing that I can’t understand them because I haven’t read the previous books.
I have to say, I want to read more the series because I want to see if there are stories about Jake and Alex, my two favorite supporting characters. Don’t ask me why, but I really, really like those two. Maybe it’s their attitudes toward love, marriage, and women in general, but I’d really like to see stories involving those two.
I received a copy of this book free from the author in exchange for my honest review. All opinions expressed are 100% my own.
