SEAL It with a Kiss (SEAL It With A Kiss #1)
Lieutenant Tabitha Chapel is determined to become the first woman to join the navy SEALs. She'll use every connection she has (and she has plenty), any wile (feminine or otherwise) and her substantial strength of will to make this happen.
Not in this man's navy!
Commander Marc Miller is equally determined to keep women in general - and Tabitha Chapel i...more
The Navy/SEAL aspects of this story were fantastic. The terminology, situations, descriptions and mindsets were all well done. There was never a doubt where and who we were dealing with, but enough exposition the reader wouldn't get lost. Kudos to the ...more
I did have a few issues. The characters did a lot of thinking about their conflicts, but not much talking about them. And, although Hell Week was covered, the rest of SEAL training wasn't. And unfortunately, I just don't believe a woman, even an Olympic athlete, could make it through. No matter how at ...more
I gave this a four star rating. It would have been a five star rating but the ending fell short, way to rushed. There were a few misspelled words but overall the novel was well written with lots of information that made you feel as if you were right there in the mix of all the action and training. Tabitha was a bad-ass SEAL. She's one tough cookie that does not crumble. Marc was an alpha all around but you learned he can compromise...eventually. I have ...more
I've owned this book in paperback for years, and it was starting to fall apart from all the times I've read it. I was ecstatic to find it in ebook. Now I can re-read it however many times I want, and not worry about it falling apart!
I really enjoyed this book! I loved the strong characters. I don't know anything about being in the navy or SEAL training or what they do, so I can't comment on how realistic it is for women to do SEAL training. However, I did enjoy the realism in the fact that the hero didn't want the heroine to be a SEAL. That he pushed for her to be safe. That she felt pressure to compromise her dream so that they could be together. I feel that's real life for women - if you want to have kids, you ...more
I enjoyed the determination of Tabby. I was rooting for her and hoping she didn't give up. I love romance and want the two main characters to finally get together but not at the expense of Tabby's life goal of being a Seal. Very happy ending.
Lt Tabitha Chapel is determined to join the Teams. She’s not about to let a little thing like gender get in her way. She’ll use every wile–feminine or otherwise–and her considerable strength of will to win this battle of the sexes. But the limits of her determination are tested by the only Navy SEAL capable of commanding her heart.
Cmdr Marc Miller is equally determined to keep her out of his program. As the newly appointed ...more

Sparks an attraction have been growing since Marc first set eyes on Tabitha and the first weekend that she is no longer in his command he marries her. She comes back and ...more
There is a great build up of tension between the couple but the execution leaves a lot to be desired. I felt the romance was secondary to the training portion of the story-that would have been fine except the tension ...more
Once I got through the first chapter I couldn't put it down!! Great story line and characters. I loved that this book was a true romance while avoiding language and many of the explicit details that so many authors insist on using these days. The characters are strong, well developed and believable. The ups and downs in their relationship, and the personal struggles that each fight to make it work, only draw you in deeper. And there are ...more
Commander Marc Miller doesn't want women to be allowed in the Seal school and does everything possible to prevent it.
Tabitha Chapel is going to do whatever it takes to be the first woman to succeed.
The two are at war over this issue and also warring with their feelings for each other. I rated this book a five star because Ms. Brewer has written a very good book and I hope to read more of the same.
I highly recommend this good book to anyone who likes military stories.
I could not put this book down. I felt I was being given an authentic look at Seal training. The characters felt very real to me. Since I am a Romance writer, it takes a lot to please me, and this book pleased on every level. The situations the heroine and hero found themselves in and the touches of humor were just right. Best book I've read in ages. Of course I did buy the DVD all ten seasons of JAG, so my interest was already there. Kudos to Rogenna B ...more
I really liked the story and personalities of the characters. The only problem I have with it is the ending. Talk amputated up with a pretty bow, and don't in about two paragraphs. I like a happy ending, but this one was so unbelievable because any real emotions or real grief are pushed aside for the happily ever after. Otherwise, I think it was a great book, and I'd like to read more from her.
LT Tabitha Chapel-Prince comes from a long line of Navy officers and she has decided to be the first female Navy SEAL. Her commander has decided she will not be. Many men who apply to be a SEAL don't make it.
Though this is a work of fiction, with the recent acceptance of two women as Army Rangers (the elite of the Army), perhaps the idea of women SEALS is not too far fetched
Loved the family history and the military aspect. Real truth about military wives and the life. I loved Tabby and her strength and I go for it attitude. Then there's Marc carrying a lot of painful baggage. The question becomes can they make it work. Love the way all the characters lives were interwoven together.
And her commanding officer has the hots for her....
Sounded like fun and it was. Her father was a SEAL and neither of her brothers want to be SEALs, and she does. And neither her father nor her husband want her to be!
Great description of SEAL training, male unit bonding and how it all turns out.
