Stranded with the SEAL by Amy Gamet
Genres: Adult (Mild), Crime, Mystery, Romance, Suspense
4 solid stars

I probably should have given this 4.5 stars.

The intimate romance scenes could have been kicked up a notch. They were close to 'Fast Food'. Nice, but not hot and steamy. They are what I would call 'Adult', but just barely.

The writing and flow is off the charts perfection.

Loaded with surprising twist & turns.

Great mystery and crime elements.

Very well done suspense. Loaded with action.

I'm impress

Hawk’s book is a win for me, normally I don’t always like the Hero’s more than the Heroines in books like these but something about him got to me. His need to protect but also with that thought in the back of his mind about revenge. And yet when it’s all said and done I don’t think it was even revenge that kept him going. I think it was Olivia, which I totally dug.

Olivia was a good character, I don’t know that she is a favorite she was missing something for me to whole heartily like. Maybe she

What do you get when you mix vengeance, a run-a-way bride, a blizzard, and two racing cars? You get an accident that result is some minor gaps in memory, electric chemistry with a stranger, remote cabin, and oh, yeah someone hunting you like you just killed their world.

This was a quickie read but it had action, drama, suspense, and chemistry. This was a well paced romance, mystery with a solid character base. They were well written and a great start to a new series. Trevor has one thing on his m

Navy Seal Training 101/How Not to Embarrass Your Country By Being A Lousy Lover

I swear, for a bunch of guys that went into the military right out of school, and are 1 night-standing their way around the world, these guys know how to not only burn up the sheets, but ignite a raging inferno everywhere they touch down
How is that possible? Seriously!!! Not just Seals, but every branch of the armed services, AND private contractors.

This book is the perfect combination of intrigue and suspense with a side serving of sexual attraction that makes for a very exciting read. Trevor Hawkins is SEAL on a private mission of revenge when a mountain snow storm knocks him off track and has him fighting for survival along with the woman he hits on the side of the road. Olivia Grayson has no idea who or where she is and she's not even sure she can trust the chiseled stranger who insists he saved her life when her car caught fire after t ...more

Have you ever gotten really frustrated with a book because you could see all the potential it has, but it just doesn't come together right? This is that book for me.

The writing style? Good
The general plot with the ex-SEAL wanting revenge on the guy who killed his buddy and then falling in love with the bad guy's girl? Super fun
A handful of side characters with great personalities that you can't wait to read more about in their books? Yup, just right

But the main characters?

Caught in the cross hairs of a vicious man and a dangerous situation Trent and his mystery women will have to face some truths and just maybe find the answers to a prayer, in each o ...more

This introduction to a new group of military type men who will find their true loves was a short, action-packed, intense, dramatic read. Oliva and Trevor had some major situations to deal with alone and together that managed to ultimately work out positively for both of them. I look forward to reading about the other men in the group as the rest of the series comes out.

Thank you to the author for the copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

I have read the author's other series so I was excited to get Stranded with a SEAL. But even though it was good, it still lacked the pizzaz that the hero and the heroine should have. Other than that I'd still give it a solid 4 star rating.

Hawk is on his way to avenge the death of his team mate but he's in a blizzard that is getting close to be a white out. After going around a curve he suddenly sees Olivia and her car stuck in a snow bank. Even though he tries to avoid the crash it still happens

He barely finds her and she's obviously knocked out; he has to hurry and carry her away from the crash before the cars explode due to the fire and the explosives he was carry ...more

Absolutely forgettable...

SEAL Trevor Hawkins (aka Hawk), has gone rogue from his HERO unit when he runs into (literally) Olivia during a snow storm on a remote mountain road. While he manages to get them both to shelter in a nearby cabin, they’re injured, and Hawk’s forced to set aside his dreams of revenge while they recuperate. Olivia’s on the run as well, only she can’t remember why, so while she’s trying to get her memories back, she and Hawk give in to the mutual attraction that’s flared be

This book missed the mark in a lot of ways. As a trauma nurse, the descriptions of a head injury an amnesia have no basis in reality. My teeth itched reading it.

The set up with the other team members for their books was poorly timed in the and ultimately uninteresting. There a heinous example near the end of the book that simply doesn’t belong.

Hawk is fairly well developed character, or at least he is compared to Olivia. We learn nothing about her. Hawk could be humping the proverbial sexy lam

Fast Pacing And Unrealistic Characters Wrecked This Story - 1.5 Stars

This book had a good premise and a few exciting moments. However, it was too short, and the fast pace made the story progression awkward. If you like an insta-lust type of story where the characters are quick to sleep with each other, you might be okay with this. To me, the best romances are the ones that take a little time to develop.

As for the main characters, Olivia and Hawk seemed shallow and not at all appealing. The sco

I enjoyed every moment of this book. The intensity of the guys while they're trying to find Hawk, the history of what had happened to one of their own causing the issues they're up against, and the knowledge of what is possibly to come makes this a definite must read that'll keep you on the edge of your seat, begging for more. I cannot wait to read more of this series!

Typical Immediate Sexual Attraction

Sorry but it was tough getting through this. The characters weren't detailed or rounded out in any way that you felt like you knew then or at least understand their motives.

I have read so many different books over my life and in the romance genre I just am completely bored with 2 people who are jumping on each other before they've known each other for 5 minutes. Where is the build up? Where are the real life problems they need to overcome? And a SEAL would ne

This was a good start to the series. Trevor finds Olivia and saves her. She has amnesia so she can't tell him much about her past but he starts putting stuff together- including that she was soon to be married. Therefore, please note that they do indeed develop a relationship even though due to her memory loss she is unsure of the status of her relationship- as I'm not a fan of cheating so I thought it was important to point out.

Overall though, I thought the story had good pacing and was a good

So "Hawk" is on his way to avenge his friend's murder and Olivia is running from her own wedding when they have an accident in the mountains during a snow storm. Olivia ends up with amnesia. While stranded they try to figure out why she's there, while he tries to continue with his mission but their attraction for each other is front and center heating up the place.

Plotting her escape, Olivia does not realise just how close she is throwing herself into danger. Stranded on the side of the road, the last thing she expects is for another car to crash into out in the middle of nowhere. Unfortunately, the resulting explosion causes more damage than either Oliver or Trevor could have anticipated. After experiencing memory loss, the flashes of memory that Olivia experiences force her to question her safety. The story is fast-paced and suspenseful, keeping me intr ...more
