A Stepbrother SEAL Romance

My stepbrother is raging hard and he won’t be controlled.

When we first met, he was only a perfectly gorgeous stranger all covered in tattoos.

I couldn’t resist pressing my body close against his. I couldn’t say no when he took me out to the alley to do more than just dance.

How could I have known my overbearing Dad just married his crazy-as-hell Mom

This was included in One Night Seal, and I'm very glad because this one made it up for the other one. So because I didn't for see this I went in blind and I enjoyed it so much!

Claire met Nathan when she was out clubbing with her friend Lydie, at that time she doesn't know he is her step brother. They find out the next day, and then the drama begins. For me Claire was a bit on the annoying side sometimes because she was sometimes hot and then cold and that was a bit to much. But I get it it's her

Raging Hard was a complete dud for me. I really didn't enjoy it very much. The smexy times were meh. The heroine wasn't the brightest bulb and the hero was a first class jerk.

I found nothing particularly redeeming or interesting about this book. I was surprised, however, at the scene where the hero kills the first set of attempted kidnappers and then just tossed the bodies overboard and then lied about it. Ugh. And her bff, L

Both characters annoyed me tbh. Claire was whiney and dull and because Nate was a SEAL he was the only everything and he had certain emotions, actions and opinions all because he was such a SEAL.

Quick, Easy read. I wish I had liked Claire the h but ... she just was annoying. And sadly I felt 0 emotional connect between Claire and Nate. Sure there was a butt load of sexual chemistry but they never had an emotional connection. Up to the very end Claire was cold and distant.
This is the last chapter when she is out in the open about her relationship with Nate and blissfully in love:
Nate: "Are you happy here?"
"Where's this coming from?"
"Just answer."
I shrugged. "I guess so."

Yet again BB has produced another awesome read !!

This is Nathan (Nate) and Claire's story. We'll start with Claire first....she was such a darling. She's shy, reserved and it take quite a bit of alcohol to give her the courage to let loose !! Claire meets Nate in a club (which her dad owns....yup, rich dude), add more drinks some hot dancing and wow.....chemistry explodes !!. Just when you think these two might make a

I received Raging Hard for an honest review. I loved it. It was hot and sexy. I am a sucker for stepbrother romance. I would definitely read the next novel by B.B Hamel .
This was a good book but since it was a bonus to sealed it was not as hot, and the story not as good but this seal was yummy just can't compare
In Raging Hard, Nathan, a Navy SEAL on a required break to recover from being wounded meets Claire his new stepsister one night in a club on the Outer Banks. The attraction is hot, instant for this bad boy and rough talking SEAL for sweet Claire, a virgin.

Besides being his stepsister, he soon discovers that Claire is the target for a local violent group and makes it his job to protect her.

The sex is hot and rough. The danger comes as a surprise but Nate makes it his business to protect his new s
KC 2.0
Nathan (Nate) was the best part of this book. He had a dirty mouth and mind which I loved, but it also verged on being over the top sometimes. Underneath the cockiness and bravado lay a good, brave and smart man though. I also loved his sense of humor and how he constantly teased Claire with sexual innuendos, who loved it despite her protests. Despite wanting to jump Claire's bones all the time, or rather because of it, Nate proved with his actions how much he cared for Claire. He took risks to ...more

~~~I received an ARC of Raging Hard from B.B. Hamel for an honest review!~~~

This is the fifth book of B.B. Hamel's that I have received as an ARC and reviewed, I do not know B.B. Hamel personally, she contacted me through Goodreads.

I got this Arc for an honest review and loved it! just as every other book from the amazing B.B. Hamel!!!!

Nate is a navy Seals, hard every way that you look at him, he lives for his job and when he is on leave, like now, he likes to let off some steam and relax with a beautiful woman.
And he just happens to run into one in the club he is hanging out, she is hot and different, he can't seem to gather what is it about her that entices him.

Claire is certainly out of her element in this club, she kn

When I was asked to review this book I was all in as soon as I read the word SEAL i love SEAL books & I have a little fondness for stepbrother books & to add SEAL to the mix is heaven.
Claire & Nate meet at a nightclub & things get steamy between the two before Claire has to help her drunk friend.
They go their separate ways before realising they didn't exchange numbers, however it turns out Nate is her new stepbrother &a

*** I was given this arc in exchange for an honest review***

I was really excited to read this book after finding out the male lead Nate was a Navy Seal. Seriously nothing manlier than a bad ass Seal.
This book did not disappoint. I was drawn in from the first page and read it in one sitting (I have 3 kids so that's saying a lot). It had everything I look for in a story line:
•Great main characters that you fall in love with.
•A bit of suspense.
•And of course the best part steamy sex scenes.

The story was interesting. There were some action but it wasn't that... exciting.

She has to meet her new step mom and step brother in the morning for the first time and she wants to loose her virginity. Nathan just made her come with his finger and she wants more sadly her best friend is too drunk and ruins it. Next morning she meets her step brother Nate, the same guy she made out with the night before. Only problem she wants him but is conflicted about the situation. W
A reread for me - and - Yep, the best friend is still as much a bitch as I thought the first time around.
Rachel C.
This book was generally entertaining, but very, very predictable. It was a fun, quick read, but Nate sort of bothered me as a character, Claire was kind of flat, and the quickness of the story unfortunately had the downfall of being a little quick in the end. It was ok, but I don't think I'll be reading it again.

This book was inclued with my purchase of Possessive Daddy.
This is a stepbrother romance and I loved it.
Claire and Nate are just perfect. She is a virgin and he is a dirty talking hot seal. When these two come together there are fireworks.
They both fight the feelings at first but we all know love wins.
This is a good fast paced read with some violence and yes some sex. LOVED the characters and their intersctions. The snarky comments and dirty talk.
Highly recommend this book and this author.

I was very kindly provided with an ARC of Raging Hard by the author to read and review.

Claire Forester is a hard working, 21 year old virgin who would rather worry about having her head stuck in her studies than about giving up her sexual status. That is of course until the dirty talking SEAL, Nathan Magnus, crosses her path and suddenly what mattered the least quickly becomes all she can think about. But what will happen when two strangers smacked by instant lust, come to discover they're actua

with that said i want to be honest there was one thing this book taught me. that men can be OVER THE TOP cocky and confident about themselves. i really wanted to like this book because i am a fan for B.B Hammel's stepbrother books but this one was disappointing.

one thing i learned about the male MC Nate. was that Nate was in love not only with himself but with his cock. i think i would be rich with how many times that man talked about hi

I was given a copy in exchange for an honest review

After reading several books by B. B. Hamel, I knew what to expect and she didn't disappoint. All I can say is... she had me at “stepbrother”. B. B. Hamel knows how to combine suspense and taboo in an all consuming romance that entertains and titillates. Her titles always make me laugh with their double meanings, the steamy scenes make me hot, and the action keeps me intrigued. Nate and Claire kept things interesting and sexy until the very end.

Raging Hard is a thrillingly fast-paced and beautifully captivating adventure that will leave you absolutely breathless and completely content. It has the perfect blend of sassy and stubborn characters that light up and challenge a twisted, sinister plot. This is a story that will push your boundaries and make you take a good look at just how you define the most important things in life.

Nathan has his life all mapped out. He knows what works for him and what doesn’t. Whenever he receives a call

Claire Forester was use to money but I do not think you could call her spoiled, not really. She wanted more in life then settling down with some rich business man like her father. She wanted to live a bit. She was unlike her friends she held tight to her V-card.

At first I had a hard time deciding if I liked her friend Lydie. She just did not appear to be a good friend. At times you even wondered what Claire saw in having a f

Claire and her best friend Lydie are out for the night at a club owned by Claire’s father.
