Self, this shit is not for you. You've started feeling the itch to skim at only page eight. Why?

"A perfumed late spring breeze blew softly against her face and neck, sending a thrill up her spine."

Attempts to wax poetically about everything from hair plugs, a car, and the air just isn't for you.

"Next to it, a large stainless steel bowl set encrusted with dark green and purple leaves at the bottom, evidence of a salad -- several days old."

Ok...I love Navy SEALs. Strong, angst ridden military heroes just do it! But this one didn't. I didn't care for the main couple. I didn't care about the team. The plot didn't really make sense to me. The writing didn't impress me. Christy annoyed me to no end...such a whiny, weak woman. She endangers her career, jumps into bed, cries when shes dumped, vows never again, jumps right back into bed, cries again...and so on and then runs away because of a failed love life. Just because she kicks two ...more
OMG, I finished it. Finally.

This was in turn boring, irritating and stupid. I tried, I really tried especially after the novella intro SEAL Encounter which gave me high hopes for this.

But Christy and Kyle share two one-night stands in a row which shouldn't have happened after Kyle attacked Christy during their first meeting. Christy somehow falls in love with him based on several seconds of pre and post-sex talk. Kyle tried to let her down easy when he dumps but she falls into a crazy suicidal d
The premise of the story is good, but it lacked the suspense I was looking for in a romantic suspense read. The hero Kyle Lansdowne is serious and intense and has that vulnerability side that I like in a hero. The heroine Christy Nelson I found to be quite needy and too emotional for my liking. I wanted to feel the connection between them, but even that fizzled a little.

All that being said, I'm looking forward to getting to know more of the other cheeky members of Kyle's SEAL team mates in the f

If you don't already know this about me I will spell it out for everyone. I love military reads! Actually I love all men in uniform (hence why I married a cop) but there is just something about a military man. Maybe it's the alpha thing that gets me. There is nothing better than a dominant man that takes charge but deep down, he has a soft heart and a good soul.

Christy has relocated from San Francisco to Sand Diego after her mother had died. She is embarking on a new career as a real estate age

To tell the truth I didn't even finish this book. I didn't connect to the character and the writing style felt immature to me.

The hero Kyle was the only reason I got as far as I did, though even he seemed a little to clichéd.

The sex scene I read was so mechanical and fake but the final nail in the coffin was the heroine being so completely needy and pathetic after the one night stand.

This book was fake and made no connection with me- which is sad really as I normally love these types of books

A very poorly written book overall, but surprisingly better the last part of the book. Full of cliches and badly worded similes that were misused in practically every situation....and Christy using "peach" to describe herself? Weird!!!
The characters were unlikeable, shallow, and irritating and the plot line really convoluted. What the hell happened to all the bad guys? No meaningful resolution to the plot..

Don't waste your time or money! Thank goodness this was a freebie!

The story continues from the prequel, "SEAL Encounter" where we were introduced to Kyle and his love Christy. Loved this one too, the characters are almost real, the story is interesting, kept me turning the page to find out what happens next. I blame Sharon for not getting enough sleep... :D
I recommend this book, 5 stars all the way. Can't wait to read the next one "Fallen SEAL Legacy", just published yesterday. YAY!

Reading a Navy SEAL story for me is like a kids allowance. They start with ten bucks and if they don't do the dishes they lose a buck. A SEAL story always starts at a five star for me. If the hero and heroine keep me pinned to the pages that rating will stick. A couple of inconsistencies in this story dropped my rating. The hero a ten year veteran named Kyle is a believable character. Christy on the other hand is viewed as being spicy and tough by Kyle but everything written about her is whiny ...more

With the heat of summer upon us, Sharon Hamilton's Accidental SEAL cranks up the heat even more through its edge of your seat suspense and intensely sexual connection between the main characters of Kyle and Christy. Not only do we get to meet such a strong primary couple, but the secondary characters are equally intriguing and as SEALs are super strong and charming.

Christy and Kyle meet in a very memorable way and from there their relationship evolves very quickly. Christy's a strong and likable

Kyle Lansdowne is an A typical Navy SEAL. He is a rugged, handsome, sexy, Alpha male who is married to his Team. After his first glimpse of Christy, and even though he stalked her throughout the San Francisco airport, he never expected to lay eyes on her again. But the sensual, leggy blonde has never left his thoughts.
Christy hasn’t forgotten that strong body that leant up against hers when she stumbled, as the powerful arm snaked around her middle to capture her fall. She has fantasised about

I HATE leaving reviews like this! It turns my stomach because I know what it takes to put a story together and out there for readers to read. This book didn't do anything for me except frustrate me. There was absolutely NO authenticity in it that gave it any military feel. The first thing I noticed was a lack of "Yes, Sir." or "No, Sir." or any true military lingo. I was also very frustrated with the heroine/hero. He pushed her away, she pulled him back. She loves him after 2 days, and he won't ...more

I thoroughly enjoyed this modern-day adventure story. Accidental SEAL is a frolicking good read that whipsaws the action from bedroom ecstasy to the fierce brotherhood that emerges when a fellow SEAL mysteriously disappears. After serving two tours of duty in Iraq and one in Afghanistan, Kyle "Lanny" Lansdowne returns to his home town of San Diego unprepared to handle a chance encounter with the beautiful Christy Nelson at the same time his SEAL wartime buddy, Armando Guzman, vanishes without a ...more

Accidental SEAL reveals wave like romance pounding the heart like a persistent high tide. This tide of passion may just convince the reader that author Sharon Hamilton brings a fresh look at romance set around the beaches and scenes of San Diego. The tide sometimes swells against the protagonists Christy and Kyle while they search for his missing SEAL partner, who has disappeared under mysterious conditions. The waning makes them examine what truly counts. This new series of SEAL romance stories ...more

I could not get enough. This story was shrouded in mystery, suspense, and hot sex. Kyle was a conflicted, but loyal, honorable man, and Christy was his equal. From the very beginning the two shared a deep connection, but they both had to overcome a few obstacles before they could get their HEA. I was totally into them as a couple. Loved the action and the banter. I’m really looking forward to more from Coop, Fredo, and Armani. Good series!

This is an exciting action packed, sensual romance. Kyle the hero being a gorgeous Navy SEAL. Christy is a fiesty heroine. The interaction with the fellow SEALs were both amusing and exciting to read. The love scenes are very sensual. All the characters are believable. This is going to be a must read series from Sharon Hamilton, cant wait for the next one

I love heroes who are military...these hunky alpha men just do it for me, so it was with excitement that I started this series by a new to me author Sharon Hamilton.

I read the blurb and was totally sold! So decided to listen to it on audiobook, this was a mistake...hated the narrator, he was stilted and it sounded like he was reading, it was very uncomfortable. I debated doing a DNF on this book based on the narrator, I decided however to press on, the story started out a bit confusing and I had

Unbeknownst to fledgling realtor Christy Nelson, she has been given the wrong address for an open house. She mistakenly walks into Armando's San Diego home, where she encounters his team mate, Kyle Lansdowne, sleepi

JD Hart's narration of this book blew me out of the water! He had me hanging on very word that came out of his mouth! Its a good thing that I bought myself headphones, because some of this book was too smokin' hot for a younger audience to hear if you catch my meaning.

I really enjoyed this book. At the beginning, it's intense because you have the main characters Christy and Kyle meeting, your just learning the story and you find out that Kyle's best friend and partner in the SEALs has been kidnapped. Kyle and Christy has explosive chemistry and the sex scenes is great. All the characters are great and bring the humor to the story. It isn't until half way through the book that it gets suspenseful and the action and killing starts happening. What I liked most ...more

I'm a sucker for a Navy SEAL story. This one has some good stuff and some not-so-good stuff going on in it. While I like Kyle and Christy, I'm not sold on their falling in love after two one-night stands. And Christy keeps going after Kyle after he repeatedly breaks it off with her. Where's your pride, girl? And "her peach" -- really? IDK. Seems more like a guy's thought than a girl's, but whatever.

I like Kyle's teammates and their interactions with one another. The premise of the book is good,

1.5 stars Could have been good but wasn't. Both Christy & Kyle annoyed me. The whole 'romance'was stupid. He attacks her (he thought she was an intruder). She is terrorised but he apologises so they go out (umm stupid decision No 1 Christy) - they have one date and sex then he blows her off. Christy is hurt but decides to stalk him cause what they had was so speshul (stupid decision no 2). He tells her he is not interested then turns up a couple of days later for sex.

Armando is pronounced R-Mon-Doe NOT R-Man-Doe. (audible whispersync review)

Okay so I am having a difficult time with this book. It is the story and the narration together. The story is just a little boring, and the narration is seriously bugging me. The narrator keeps pronouncing the name Armando as R-Man-Doe. But then when the other character says the name Armani. Okay so make up your mind...

Also, when you are getting attacked and think your going to get raped or killed the guy is NOT attracti
I'm not sure, I guess 2 1/2 stars. It had it's moments but unfortunately those moments weren't when the H & h were together.

The h is a bimbo. I had high hopes for her but right from the start her dealings with a slimy co-worker set the tone.

When she takes an open house, she discovers a naked man asleep in the bedroom and he winds up tackling her believing her to be involved in his missing SEAL buddy's disappearance. It's just schizo, he lets her go without asking any questions and she fails

Accidental SEAL was a fast moving, exciting read that was both fun and sizzling! Watching as Kyle and Christy meet was enjoyable, and a little surreal for each of them – neither expecting to find the other. I mean, who goes to sell a house and expects to find a naked man? Though what a man! ;)

The connection between the two is so strong yet completely ill-timed considering he’s hunting his missing buddy. Their struggle with ‘I want / Shouldn’t want’ thankfully is relatively short and their giving

Christy is a real estate agent who enters an apartment to get it ready for an open house only to find man naked on the bed. As she runs out he, Kyle, catches her trying to find out who she is. Turns out he is looking for his friend who owns the apartment and she was given the wrong address for the open house. They sort everything out, get together for lunch and then really hot sex.

I love books about SEALs so when I read the blurb about a SEAL looking for his SEAL friend, I was looking forward to
