Fate is twisted, and karma's a bitch. Maybe destiny will give us a second chance.

I've been best friends with Skye since we were ten years old. She was my life. We did nearly everything together.

Until graduation night. The night I f'cked it all up.

Escaping to the Navy, I found a new home with the SEALs. Then tragedy struck, and I lost it all, again.

Now I find myself face-to

This one was good too. I dont have time to do a full review today, I'll get to it soon.

SEAL'd Heart by Alice Ward has romance, angst, despair, guilt, and love as emotions prevalent in this story.
Jake and Skye are suddenly back in each other’s lives after tragedy tore them away from each other. They’re vastly different from the young people they were years ago, but the past has formed a deep bond between them. The story takes part in the present and flips back to 6 years previously when the three friends were about to graduate from High School. Jake, Skye and Trey are best friends

I received an advanced reader copy in exchange for an honest review.

Can fated hearts work through years of guilt in order to find each other again?

SEAL’d Heart is a contemporary romance that follows Jake, a recently-retired Navy SEAL, and Skye, his long-time crush and mother to the son he didn’t know he had.

Jake and Skye have known each other since they were ten. The two of them, alongside their friend Trey, had a sort of love triangle all through high school. Then an accident happens and ruin

I just loved Jagger and the story with these people had me in a grip. Must admit that I also was in tears and was about to jump out of my chair at one point.
This book has romance, guilt and love all rolled up in one. Truly a book that I appreciated and felt grateful that I got to read. Loved that the characters were flawed, because that made the so relatable
Yet again Alice Ward makes a wonderful story.

Along with the repetitious sex scenes, this story was heart-breaking and raw. Broken promises, jealousy and betrayal destroyed three life long friendships. Both Jake and Trey promised they would never cross the line with their best friend, Skye, but somebody did and it ended in a heart-breaking tragedy. Can true love overcome the overwhelming guilt and depression?

This is by far one of the best books by Alice in my humble opinion. Its so well written, and is the love story of Jake and Skye. It gave me broad range of emotions while reading it, and i definitely recommend it to be read by others. I couldn't put it down, and I fell in love with their story. I voluntarily reviewed this book as an arc, and I was truly captivated!

This is one book that gripped me from the beginning to the end, there were tears, laughter and tingles from the many steamy scenes. Alice Ward tells a story of an ex SEAL, Jake, who has lived with guilt his entire life....when his parents died, when his best friend died, when he left the only woman he loved and when he survived a mission and many others didn't.
Skye grew up with Jake and Trey and has loved Jake for a long time, watching him hook up with every girl he comes across and secretly wi

He is still traumatised from his time in the military, obviously suffering from a form of PTSD, when he comes across a young boy who has been separated from his mother.

Another fabulous read by Alice Ward. Jake and Skye have been friends ever since they were young and Jake moved into his uncles house after his parents died in a car accident. Trey was also their best friend. Both boys were in love with her and she was in love with Jake. Jake and Trey had a pact that neither of them would make a move on Skye due to their friendship. When graduation comes and they are out celebrating, Trey tells Jake that he would like to make a go with Skye. Since Jake is leaving ...more

This has to be one of my all time favorite books! There were so many things I loved about it; the depth of the characters, the fact that they were flawed, the romance, Jagger! I loved that they were so real it was like I knew them.

The situations they faced and how they handled or reacted to them was at times funny, sad and at times heartbreaking. I just can't get over how realistic this book was. The very real issue of PT

Before I begin this review, let me say that I will still NEVER read Alice Ward's "Beasts Baseball series" novels because most reviews indicated that those stories are filled with dirty man whores and bed hopping sluts. However, this novel was great. It had a beautiful story that combined elements of romance with sadness, humour and family fun ! It was fabulous to read a story that really was heartwarming. These two characters truly loved each other forever but because their third best friend Tre ...more

There was so much here in this book. I like that it's tied in a little with the Beasts' storyline because that truly set the tone for a book that had an insane amount of feels, lots and lots and lots of steam, addressed real issues, and brought amazing individuals together. This book is made up of all kinds of win.

Jake is so very broken and sees nothing good in himself that deserves affection, redemption, or forgiveness. Skye is healing and doing her best for Jagger. Jagger is precocious, funny,

One night, Jake and Skye move their friendship to another level, but tragedy strikes, causing Jake to blame himself and leave town. Now, 5 years later, Jake is a former SEAL with PTSD.

Seal’d Heart is the story of second chances that had my heart aching for Skye and Jake.

Childhood friends, Jake, Skye, and Trey were very close friends up until the end of high school when tragedy pulls all of them apart. Death, survivor’s guilt, heartache, a secret baby and then six years of separation with Jake and Skye dealing with their kind of mental anguish over what’s happened in the past.

Excellent read! I was so attached to these characters that I hated for the book to end. You go through every up and down imaginable with this one. You have the strong bonds of friendship, love, forgiveness, rage, anger, guilt, denial, acceptance, jealousy, second chances, and redemption all rolled up into a fabulous book. I was torn up a couple of times while reading this. Then, to top it all off, I had to leave for a couple of hours right when I was about thirty pages to the end. I about died. ...more

After being BLOWN AWAY by The Dom vs. The Virgin, I jumped at the chance to read another of Alice Ward's books, and I shouldn't have been surprised at its emotion and depth, but I was.
