I like reading about military men since my dad is in the army plus they are hot. Cade is a Navy SEAL but ever since one of his friends died, he is aimless, then his father falls ill and he goes home for his grandma. To the heroine, the hero was always her hero, rescuing her from her klutziness, plus he is also her fantasy. She comes from the rich but is not wealthy, so doesn't belong.

The book was just the right mix of sexiness, emotion and fun. The heroine goes all out to seduce the hero, a sire
A SEALs Surrender
4 Stars

Wealthy, gorgeous and a Navy SEAL to boot, Cade Sullivan, has always been the heartthrob of his small town. Cute, klutzy and accident prone, Eden Gillespie, is the town’s social outcast. Home on leave, Cade finds himself coming to Eden’s rescue once again, only this time Eden has definite plans for the local hero and will settle for nothing less than his complete surrender …

Despite the military hero, this not romantic suspense but straight contemporary romance.

Tawny Weber gives readers everything they want! Heart thumping romance with a side order of family drama and a dollop of humor makes a perfect recipe or in this case a perfect Tawny Weber romance. I don’t know how she does it, but Ms. Weber creates stories with characters I relate to time and time again.

A Seal’s Surrender is a great nice-girl-next-door romance. Eden Gillespie has the charm, the smarts, and the quirky ability to always find herself in a pickle and in need of a strong sexy boy nex

I think I picked this book up as a free download on Amazon a while back. Harlequin books are usually good for a decent read, and I've found over the last few years that I prefer their Blaze series over some of the others. There is a little more spice to the romance.
That being said,

A SEAL's Surrender is the best Harlequin title I've read in a while.

There were a lot of things I liked about this book. First was it's two main characters, Cade and Eden. They grew up as neighbors, so there wasn't the

I tried really hard to like this story and this couple but I just couldn't get past the burning question in the back of my mind...Why in the world would you want something/somebody so badly that everyone else has had already?! Eden's self esteem was pathetic. It took her until the very end of this story to realize she didn't need Cade, her mother or the town's approval. I don't think Weber did her homework too well on SEALs for this one. Some incorrect rank info and a slew of typos.

3.5 out of 5 Stars

The second in the "Uniformly Hot Seals Series". You definitely don't need to read the first book to enjoy the second one.

Engaging and a bit humorous at times I'm actually surprised by this being a Harlequin Romance... Not a bad read at all.

No action in this book. Just drama and gossip. I was hoping for more.

Healing through rescue is not a totally unique idea but when Ms. Weber throws together a very clumsy but adorable lady with a hero who, despite the mental anguish he suffers, can’t seem to stop himself from coming to her rescue, readers are in for an entertaining treat.

Cade Sullivan has a lot of issues to work through in this story. Some of the angst is about the healing from the loss of his teammate but the other is about his place i

3.5 stars.

I was actually kinda pleasantly surprised considering this was (1) a freebie and (2) a Harlequin Romance...

I wouldn't consider this book to be full-length at only about 220 pages, but it was set up the way many authors do when writing novellas—where the hero and heroine have a back story in the past that the heroine "remembers" at times. It allows more NOW development in a shorter time, which is smart, and in this case, pretty well done.

I think my BIGGEST complaint was all the backgrou

Come check out the reviews on my blog Under The Cover

I know this cover is well… my case, I find it to not be exactly a good selling argument. But you know what they say: Never judge a book by its cover. So I took that advice with this book.

So you guessed it, I wasn’t really expecting much from this book when I picked it and ended up being surprised by it. It was a sweet, nice read. Not very long and not mind blowingly good but good none the less.
I really enjoyed reading it. The characters
Decent overall story, but the military stuff drove me nuts. Naval Captains don't earn their bars, they earn a bird. Captain's wear bars in the USAF, USMC, and USA, but not the USN. Also, how did Cade become an officer? He claims to have enlisted and gone through BMT with his two buddies, and that they were on a team together. Officers don't traditionally enlist first, they usually go through college first, then sign a contract as an officer into the military. I understand that he could have gone ...more

I personally enjoyed this story more than the first one, one of the facts that Cade and Eden have a bit of a history. Eden has always had a thing for Cade, but not only is he older than she is, but he’s always seen her as the girl next door that he needs to save. Little does she know that after Cade accidentally saw her naked --one of the many times he rescued her-- he’s seen her as more than just the girl he always rescues.

The chemistry between these characters is amazing. The strength of Eden
Lieutenant Commander Cade Sullivan, Navy SEAL comes for a visit because his father had a heart attack or rather because his grandmother, Catherine asked him to come home.

Eden Gilespie, lives next door and while Cade has been away in the Navy being a hero, she has become a vet and bought her family home and opened her business in the converted barn to vet office. Cade has rescued Eden from one mess after another since they were children and they are friends.

This time is different and Eden offers
3.5 Stars
Contemporary Blaze Harlequin. Part of the Hot men in Uniform! Series. No fantasy required. Nice heat and chemistry with an interesting original story. Had some nice suspense.

Got to love those men in uniform! They are the real deal. Men with physical, mental, character strength honed through the fire of training and combat.

Blake = Very Hot Toned Muscled Male= Yum!

This storyline is simplistic in the extreme. Almost as if it were written for teens and not adults. The cover shows a man with black hair and a dark heavy beard shadow. When the hero is described as being 6'2", blonde and having green eyes. For me this caused a disconnect right off the bat. Someone, author, editor or publisher, thinks the average reader is too stupid to notice. That I find insulting. The characters are not well developed and much of the discourse comes across as unnecessary expe ...more

This is a great book penned by the talented Tawny Weber. She writes very intriguing characters who make you root for them through the whole book. Being a klutz myself I relate to Eden and need to be rescued, and found her rescuer Cade extremely handsome and sexy as hell., I highly recommend this book to anyone wanting a hot and satisfying read!

Sweet read. Didn't find anyting exceptional though. Started out pretty humorous, I really liked the animals, as Eden the "h" was a veterinarian. The story started out on the steamy side but later on everything seemed to scream 'standard romance'. So only 3 STARS for me, sorry to say.

So Cade is devastated when a mission gone awry takes Phil’s life…a mission in which Cade had been the leader. Cade is not only suffering from the loss of his friend, he blames himself.

A SEALs Surrender by Tawny Weber continues her amazing series this time focusing on Cade Sullivan. There is nothing sexier than a dashing man in uniform. For those lucky enough to know him on a deeply personal level they are forever inducted into a special club with “privileges for life.” Privileges that Eden would love to have. Even since childhood Eden, the girl next door, has secretly pined for Cade. However, their relationship has always been platonic much to Eden’s dismay.

I really liked this book. OK it's not going to change the world but I enjoyed reading this romance and with a Navy SEAL, it couldn't get better.

Eden and Cade have been neighbors and known each other since they were children. Eden has always had a crush on Cade but he looked at her like a klutzy little girl who constantly needed to be rescued - until during one of his rescues, he sees her naked and his thoughts change for her in a big way.

I'm a sucker for these kinds of books. Just the idea of a man in uniform is hot.

Eden is a small town woman who grew up next door to the hottest, most popular guy. Cade was not only her neighbor, but he was always rescuing her from some scrape or another. Although Eden's family is one of the founding families of her home town, after the death of her father, they fell on hard times and out of favor socially. A bit clumsy, but sweet, she isn't part of the "it" crowd, but wishes she could change tha

A Seal's Surrender by Tawny Weber is a 2013 Harlequin publication.

Cade is a SEAL and most fathers would be bursting with pride. But, not Mr. Sullivan, Cade's father who has never forgiven Cade for walking away from the family business to join the military. Now the old man has had a heart attack and Cade is back home.

Eden is the girl next door type, a girl that lives surrounded by the affluent, while she isn't. Her love life is stagnant and her best friend is hoping to help her out of her slump

I'm so happy that I can rate this book higher than the first in this series. Since I loved the storyline in the first book it pained me that there were so many other problems. This one was definitely a step up. The editing is so much better, but still not great. It would have actually gotten one more star from me if there hadn't been some glaring errors in that department. The use of the term "soldier" for a Navy SEAL was at a minimum. Decent storyline and great characters rounded it all out.

Recommends it for: Anyone who loves an emotional love story and great sex
Tawny Weber has done it again! She writes a wonderful love story with great dialogue and sex. I really got caught up in this wonderful story and highly recommend it.

Cade Sullivan and Eden Gillespie grew up next door to each other. He was 4-6 years older than she was, and he was always rescuing her. He joined the Navy Seals after a heated argument with his rich and strong willed father, who wanted him to stay home and work in the family business. His father has a heart attack and crashes into Ede
