The first AND most important thing you should know about this story is that it is overwhelmingly emotional. Not in your typical, that's a sad moment emotional, but the story itself is emotionally charged. When I was reading this story, I felt this overwhelming longing ... I couldn't quite put my finger on exactly what was causing it until I realized it wasn't any one thing or event. The story is electric, charged with emotion! The second thing you should know is that in my opinion, this is by far, Zoe York's best work yet. She ex ...more

Coming next week in the Romancing the Alpha boxed set!
4.25 RATING- There's not a lot to this book because of the shorter length but it worked perfectly as written. Zoe York is one of the few authors that really nails writing a novella. The chemistry between these two characters is great and I especially loved the hero, who falls fast and is a bit of a dirty talker- two of my favorite things! Did I mention he's a SEAL? Oh yeah! I think this may be one of the steamier books in the series. Nothing over the top, just very well done.

Overall, a cute, short rea

FALL BACK: BOOK #6 SEAL's Undone by Zoe York...

Navy Seal Cade Duncan and Melissa Vincent. When these two meet it's not under the best of circumstances.
They don't know each other, but interesting to find out when both are there for the same reason.

Mel rushes off when she finds out her best friend Cassie is in the hospital..and finds a big hunky mountain guy in the
elevator with her. Then see's him again..

Cade is going to see is friend Jared who needs his help, and he see

I got a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Every time I read a new book by Zoe York, I say "This is my favorite in the series". Fall Back was no different.I fell in love with Cade Duncan from the very first moment. He doesn't play fast and loose. He is a guy who actually likes to invest some time in a relationship outside of sex. Mel Vincent is a no-nonsense, strong, independent woman who has had too many downfalls in her life. She has built a wall aro

Loved this fun sexy light read! I thought Cade and Mel worked perfectly together and the way he falls hard and fast is swoon worthy. Mel has had some hard times but Cade isn't willing to give up on tearing down the walls she has erected. This is a great addition to Ms. York's SEAL's Undone series and I can't wait for the next one!
This was a little shorter than I'm used to but it was definitely a good read.

The Navy SEALs have such a wonderful network for their men to meet the women of their dreams, and it is no different in Fall Back. Cade is an intuitive character - even before he officially met Melissa, he could read her, or so he thought! What he is reading is her blocking herself off from feeling, or expressing those feelings. Melissa really is a bit neurotic and Cade is incredibly sensitive and empathetic towards that. Early on, in the narrative, we see that he has formed an immediate interes ...more

First you must know that I love all of Zoe York's books and have never been disappointed. I believe this is the 6th in the Seals Undone series and while it's a quick novella, it does not disappoint.

I like how this SEAL, Cade Duncan was so sweet and cute. He runs into this woman, Melissa on his way in to a hospital. It turns out that they're both heading to the same room. Cade tries to get Melissa's phone number from his friend and then asks him to invite him over for dinner and "mayb

In favor of the favor, Cade asks for one thing, the hot and curvaceous girl he just saw's number.

This review is for Fall Back by Zoe York.
Fall Back is another SEALS Undone novella, but this time I think the SEAL undoes the woman. Cade is a sweetheart with a capital S. He is my favorite of the SEALS in this series. He has so much physical stamina, mental excellence, kind generosity and emotional patience with Mel that I couldn’t help but fall in l

In this fun and sexy story, Mel's partner for an endurance race has to drop out when his wife's pregnancy gets a little tense, but his drop dead gorgeous friend Cade is more than willing to fill in. Mel's got secrets though, and she's a bit on the prickly side but Cade is determined to get through the wall she surrounds herself with and find the real woman inside.

I've really enjoyed the other SEAL stories from this author (each is standalone) and since I happen to be a big fan of these kinds o
How do you know when it's safe to trust someone with your secrets and your heart? You ask yourself, "what if my baggage is too much baggage for them? What if they can deal with it only a short amount of time."

Cade & Mel meet when visiting friends at the hospital. There is immediate attraction but Cade has to leave for two weeks and Mel is too busy organizing her life down to the minute to see where it leads.

First and foremost I want to say thank you to all of the men and women serving our country! Without you, we would not have all the freedoms that we do. Again thank you, you are in my prayers every Sunday!

Cade Duncan wanted Melissa Vincent the moment he saw her. She was friends with his friends, Jared and Cassie. He found out that she needed a partner for an endurance race and volunteered. Her only rule is for them to stay in the friend zone until they return home from the race. Will she be able to stick to her own rule? Will she ever tell Cade the real reason for her wanting to run this particular race?

Zoe York introduced us to another hottie, a strong male that can do more than look yummy; Cade is a seal with a heart of gold, the patience of a saint and the body of a sinner in summary the perfect triad; but Mel is a control-freak, that treated men as they were ticking bombs. A SEAL’s training was needed to create and implement a plan to infiltrate “enemy lines” in order to rescue the damsel in distress even though she did not know that she wanted to be rescue. Should we say NO to MORE strong ...more

Absolutley love Zoe York's sweet SEALS and was instantly pulled into Cade and Mel's cute chemistry. I've long been a fan of this series, with only three more to read. York's male MCs are totally lovable, completely charming, sweet, incredibly hot - how was that shower scene!! - and just enough alpha without being douche-y.

Love the locations -Hawaii! Sounds divine. Mel is an independent woman, wanting to connect with her mother by competing in a mountain course/race. Down a partner, (book #2's

I think it is official I am officially a book boyfriend tart lol.

I have fallen in love with Cade Duncan from the moment we meet him in the book for the first time. First of all he's not your typical hump and dump kind of man that is only interested in one thing he likes to spend time and invest into the relationship.

He meets Mel Vincent who is strong and very independent despite the downfalls she has endured in her life. Mel has therfore put a brick up a wall up so nobody can get to close but

This is book 6 of the SEALs Undone series and so far my least favorite.

Mel is scheduled to participate in an endurance race in Hawaii with Cassie's husband Jared when he has to drop out. Cade is interested in Mel and therefore volunteers to go with her.

Cade is a great character. He's handsome, protective, caring, basically everything you'd want in a man. Mel on the other hand is closed off and can't seem to make up her mind. She comes across as bitchy and rude. By the tim

Good one of the SEALs Undone series. No major injury or medical problem in this one, so it leaves time for York to conjure up another hook: this one's interracial! Mel Vincent is Cassie Sutter's best friend and meets Jared's teammate Cade Duncan at the hospital where they are both visiting Cassie.

Cade thinks Mel is beautiful and wants to get to know her, but he finds her "prickly". She guards herself, which he sees right away. She is also headed to Hawaii for a race challenge and Jar

This book made me laugh and cry!! Come and fall in love with Cade!! Ladies he has a nipple piercing!! The course of this book takes you along for their endurance race, which Mel wants to complete for a very special reason. I highly recommend this to anyone who loves reading about hot SEALS!!

I thought this was a fun and enjoyable read with likable main characters and a slightly different storyline. Cade and Mel fit together well but both had some fairly substantial baggage - especially Mel. I thought the writing was good and the story flowed well. This short book fit the bill for me for a lazy afternoon read.

Romancing The Alpha, a boxed set that includes this book was given to me in exchange for my honest review of at least 3 of the books in the set.

I love all of Zoe York's books and this novella did not disappoint at all. Cade is a SEAL who only knows of Mel through mutual friends. He wants to get to know her better, she has a mission: to complete a race. As they get to know each other and open up to one another, they each figure out what has been missing. Emotional and quick read that gets you from the beginning.

I was given an ARC from the author in exchange for a review. All opinions are my own.
Mel Vincent trained for a two-day endurance race in Hawaii and her partner's wife developed complications with her pregnancy and she found she needed another partner at the last minute.

Navy SEAL Cade Duncan offered to come with Mel to Hawaii for as her race partner. Romance started slowly as she opened up her heart to Cade and found out that she could always Fall Back on his support and love.

rcvd an ARC for Zoe York's Fall Back...loved the story btn Cade and Mel. Cade willing to help Mel when he didn't know her too well except that she was guarded and Mel to accept Cades help shows just how much the trip means to her. Their adventures turn into drama, heart-to-hearts, amazing chemistry and flirting in a span of a few days. another great read by Zoe!!

Cade and Mel have great chemistry. Even though she didn't want to date at the beginning I'm glad she took him up on his offer to do the race with her.

I would have liked to have a few chapters from when they got back home and were a couple. Seeing them in every day life like normal people would have been nice.
