I received this book for free from the Publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
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.
Tawny Weber never fails to deliver! CALL TO HONOR is an engaging page-turner filled with sizzling chemistry, emotion, humor and suspense that will leave a reader wanting more. I know that because all I wanted wanted when I finished reading this book was to get my hands on the next one but since that’s not possible,I settled for re-reading her back-list to tide me over until then.
Lieutenant Diego Torres lives and breathes the SEAL code of honor and brotherhood and when a mission he leads goes south and the future of the entire team is on the line, Diego is determined to get to the truth about what happened on the mission. All roads lead to Harper Maclean and while Diego is more comfortable on the streets, he’ll brave suburbia for his men.
Harper Maclean has spent the last eight years building a solid life for herself and her son after being abandoned by his father as a pregnant teen. She definitely has no time for a man or relationships except professional ones, but her hot new neighbor is irresistible temptation and Harper may just indulge herself this one time since he will be gone soon.
I feel like gushing about this book because I loved it so much. Ms. Weber knows how to capture a reader’s attention and keep it. There is no part of this story that was lacking or overdone in any way. The chemistry between Diego and Harper was scorching hot, steaming up the pages of the book and it was so cute watching them tumble head over heels for each other while trying to convince themselves it was just sex. The relationship between Harper and her son was so adorable and the way he latched on to Diego was so endearing. Beyond that, I loved Diego’s dedication to his SEAL brothers and his love for his job. There is nothing like a capable, take charge man to get a woman revved up both in the bedroom and outside it.
Harper was a really good mom and her love for her son was undeniable. She was tough, talented and hardworking, had overcome many obstacles to get to where she was and she was willing to do her best for her child.
It’s quite creepy to find out the obsession that Harper was unaware of and I’m not going to lie, I give a minute to wondering if I shouldn’t beef up my own personal security:) Diego’s investigation turns up a betrayal of the brotherhood and country and there are more questions than answers at this moment, but I can’t wait for the next book in the series to find out more. There is a long list of SEALs that I hope get a happy ending and I’m looking forward to their stories.
