Drake and Karen had wonderful chemistry, and their story was a lot of fun, once they actually got together. Their first real interaction wasn't until about 40% into the book, and for me this messed up the pacing of the story, as their relationship, and the resolution of the other events, seemed a lot faster than the first part of the story.

There was also a lot of additional stuff going on around the central couple, with a difficult family history, issues with the

This was a fun romantic suspense read. I really liked the interactions between Drake and Karen, and Drake and everyone else. His sisters were a hoot, giving him grief.

I had no idea this series existed before and this is book 9. I'm going to have to go back and check out some of the others in the series since I enjoyed this so much.

Drake Avery is called back home after his 16 year old sister Piper calls him at night for help. He hasn’t been home for 12 years and it is time. Time to face his demons. Saving his sister and being framed for a crime he didn’t commit as he sent his father to jail. He returns home.

Not having time for love it hits him anyway in the form of a kindergarten teacher.

Another seriously AMAZING book in the Midnight Delta Series by Miss Caitlyn O' Leary. After several books, we finally get Drake's story and oh boy, his book had me hungerly turning page after page. His commanding presence and his domineering ways I find exceptionally sexy and after learning about his past, yep, he became even SEXIER and I honestly didn't think that could happen.

When you read a Midnight Delta story, you’re guaranteed a fast paced, intensely gripping plot, that’s jam-packed with suspense, action and romance. Spine tingling expectation and excitement builds throughout this story, and keeps readers on the edge of their seat till the last page is turned. Each scene is written in such vivid detail, that the images practically jump off the pages and the energy and emotions of the characters are felt deep within your soul.

I am a sucker for Military Romance so I thought that on that basis alone I would love Her Dominant Seal but sadly that was not the case. I had a really hard time getting into this one and even when it finally picked up I still found myself getting distracted easily. The title truly says it all in this case. I felt that Drake was just way over the top with his macho man vibe and frankly I found him repulsive. I don't know why anyone in the world would want a man that abrasive. A little bit of abr ...more

What a great feel good book. I love a Navy seal and when you put him with a kindergarten teacher (swoon). Drake is protective, dominate, and a bad a&$. He doesn't put up with anyone's crap, and will so what ever he needs to keep his baby sister safe. He also has a great set of sisters that kick a&%too. I loved Karen! She is so amazing.

I only wish I had read Caitlyn O'Leary's other books. This is a wonderful book, and you don't need to have read the other books in the series.

Not being there for his six younger sister, not seeing them in person for twelve years, has broken his heart, but as his Mom agreed with him not returning, he stayed away.

Her Dominant Seal is the 9th book in the Midnight Delta series, but can be read as a standalone. I am a Caitlyn O'Leary newbie and was so glad I read this book. It was suspenseful, passionate, overwhelming, and an enjoyable insta-love read. Drake lived every day remembering his past and it was time to come face to face with his present.

Medal Winning Brother, and oh yeah, SEAL.
Drake had just returned from a mission and was resting up like the rest of his team when he got the phone call. A soft female voice he almost didn't recognize, Piper, his youngest of six sisters. He didn't know what it was but he was up and grabbing his bag as they spoke. It had been too many years since he'd been back. They were in trouble and the people causing it didn't know trouble but they were about to.

I've been reading the series. In this book, we've met both the hero and heroine in the past books. The hero is a SEAL with another team of the heroine's brother. The hero and the heroine's brother work together but anything personnel is not really tolerated. Of course, it doesn't help that the hero and heroine had something happen while the heroine's brother saved the family in Book 8 of the series.

Her Dominant SEAL is the ninth book in the Midnight Delta series by Caitlyn O'Leary and this is actually the first book I'm reading in the series and by the author. While I really liked the book, this was maybe a little tamer than I'm used to. I don't really mind that but I think, because the title had the word 'dominant', I was a little surprised by it and I kept waiting for it to get spicier. However, I got a really sweet romance with a good dose of suspense that I enjoyed a lot. You also get ...more

What melted me was Drake’s love for his family. When his sister called he dropped everything and came to her. He went back to a town that was toxic to him and for him and was there for her and his other sisters.

Drake’s past was painful. His mother and father terrible people and him and his sister’s paid the price. He ended up a Seal thanks to one judge who wanted to help save him. Who saw the good in him and the bad in the situation. So Drake left the town. But he never left his sisters or stopp

Drake has been my favorite of the Midnight Delta heroes since the very beginning, and here we get his history and insights into why he’s such a natural protector of women. Drake is called back to his hometown when his littlest sister, Piper, is in trouble. Once there, he and his team have to face down all the demons from his childhood, while discovering a few more allies along the way. One of those allies, Piper’s teacher, Karen, knocks Drake for quite a loop!

With the help of sister Evie, they find a safe house for the girls and more SEALs come to help figure out what good old dad, the rest of the family and his gang of thugs are up to. Besi

I have been waiting for Drake’s story and it didn’t disappoint! He has been my favorite character since the beginning. It was nice to see Drake meet a woman who can give it as good as she receives.

What a messed-up situation Drake has to deal with, with everything with his family, his stubborn sisters, Karen, Aiden and his team. That man had nerves of steel to deal with it all.

Ya gotta love insta-love books. You know realistically it doesn’t usually happen like that for them to live their HEA’s but, it can be an enjoyable book if you can decide to suspend reality!

This is an insane ride. Small town, police on the take, a judge out to get you. Not to mention a murderous dad.

Drake has 6, yes 6 sisters. His youngest is in trouble and hiding. He hasn't been back to his hometown in over a decade. A call in the middle of the night has him flying home. While stashing his youngest sister away from his ex con father, in walks Karen Eastman, a kindergarten teacher who is helping Piper get into college. Sparks fly at the first meeting.

This was a great story to get lost in for a few hours. This was a story of family, love, and finding true happiness. Drake and Karen story is so worth reading for the connection these two have. This book has action, drugs and a whole lot of passion. Caitlyn gave a great story of struggles and finding the good in such a hard situation. These characters give a new meaning to hot and heavy. The writing was great, the characters and the plot all make this a well-rounded story.

This could have been a 5-star book

I really enjoyed this book. The hero's not an arrogant, womanizing jerk. The heroine's not a spineless, hormone-ruled idiot. The repartee is real and entertaining. The story actually has a plot, not just verbiage linking sex scenes. Matter of fact, sexual tension spices up the story and no actual bedroom antics take place until near the end of the book--a refreshing change of pace. The supporting characters have depth. But the book needs a competent proofreader

Loved loved loved this one. Drake was so protective of his sister's. There was no way that Karen could resist him. The fact that she didn't go all weepy when he blew his cool was great. She gave Drake the shoulder, touch, and understanding he needed. They played well off of each other. By the time he got to his last 'ary' of his list I couldn't hold in the laughter.

Sixth in the Midnight Delta romantic suspense series revolving around this SEAL team based in Southern California.

My Take
A cute enough story, but the writing is too young, too immature, and it's why my rating averaged into a "3". It's insta-love with no finesse. And while it's nice to have a town that has your back, it was too easy. As for the mis-capitalizations and improper words usage. Oh. Boy.
