Lilly Holden-Bad Boy SEAL

With all the very dark and twisted stuff I’ve been reading lately, I decided that it would be nice to intersperse some lighter, sweeter, more straight-forward romance. It’s nice to mix it up a bit. That way I don’t get burnt out on any one thing. So, to that end, I ended up signing up for 4 books from Lilly Holden, with a nice group of a former SEAL team as the good guys. The first one is Bad Boy SEAL.

Charlie left Chicago to move to a small town in Texas after her mother died. She had a cousin there, so it made sense to do it. Charlie doesn’t see her cousin much since he spends a lot of time in his office doing his computer kind of stuff. She is working as a waitress at a diner, trying to figure out to do with the rest of her life. One day, 4 big guys come into her restaurant for lunch.

Jake is a former SEAL. He now does contract work for a friend. He and his team are in BFE Texas on a job. Their mark has a cousin named Charlie who they’ve decided to use. The problem? Their intel doesn’t say that Charlie is short for Charlotte. When Jake sees her, he knows that she is meant to be his.

This is a short story. It only took me around an hour or so to read it. It’s an instalove story, with a virgin, and an HEA. Those aren’t my normal fare, but like I said, I wanted to mix it up a bit. There’s nice fun, hot, and kinky sex. It has a bit of action tossed into the mix too, which is always nice. And since there is a pretty picture here, you know this is where you get to make your choice.

Not a big picture, but hey, he’s pretty, so we can live with it, right? That’s OK, I don’t have a lot of anything else to say, just because anything else I say about this is going to end up being a spoiler.

There are reasons why Jake and his team are targeting Charlie’s cousin and we’ll learn more about them. I think that if Jake had shared a little more with Charlie, maybe some of the conflict wouldn’t have happened, but I can get why he didn’t.

So, that’s all there is today. There isn’t anything tomorrow, because of the holiday. I may not even get on my computer. For all the USicans, have a nice Thanksgiving. For everyone else, have a nice Thursday! Meanwhile, happy reading!
