When a SEAL base opens in the small, coastal town of Bronze Bay, Florida, Leif knows it’s the perfect situation to shake things up after years of fighting a monotonous, gl ...more

**3.5 Stars**

This was a cute story of Leif and Malena and how they decided to have fun with each other without the expectation of a serious relationship. But due to an unplanned pregnancy, Malena has to live with the consequences of her decision regarding her choices about the pregnancy. Will it bring them even closer or end their relationship?

The story was good, a sweet story of second chances. It was not as emotional and that is probably why I wasn't as impressed. Took longer to finish as som

AW man, y'all. You're gonna want this book. I'm not even sure where to begin with this one?? I mean, it had the alpha male that's all "No, I don't need no love thank you very much" and the girl that's like "I can't want love and I'm fine by myself." Then they meet, and there's that instant attraction that draws them together. There's no messing around with these two, they both have their rules. 

They live by their rules.

Very good!

This book was a lot more than I expected it to be. I thought out was going to be the typical secret baby trope, but it was more than that. We got to see how Malena struggled with the loss of her dad, her mom having dementia, and her husband leaving her because she couldn't have babies. Then we see her and Leif come together and fall in love. The pace of the story went pretty well. Just a few parts in the middle of the book where it felt like it dragged.

I’ll start by saying Crazy Good is one of my very fav books..but this one did not work for me. I can do insta love, SEALS ✔ and surprise babies are all good but the connection was missing for me. Not sure how everything got from point A to point B. Or Z...about 50% in I was more invested but sadly it just didn’t work for me.

“I’m not the type of man you fall in love with. I’m the kind of man you use for a bit and then toss.”

Leif Andersson is enjoying the slower, simpler pace of life he’s found since being stationed at one of the country’s newest SEAL bases in Bronze Bay, Florida. It’s just the break he needs after fighting in the global war that’s been going on the past several years. Bronz

Whenever I read a book by Rachel Robinson, I know I’m in for a treat. She’s definitely my go to author for military romance. I would even go as far to say she’s pretty much the queen of it-because I haven’t found any writing that compares to her stories. There’s absolutely nothing that can top her swoon worthy, protective alphas, her witty heroines, the “real life” drama, and the oh so satisfying HEA.
Tossing it is no different, and Leif’s Book has definitely been a very anticipated story. We see

There’s just something about the way that Rachel Robinson writes her stories that I’m always just hooked from chapter one and Tossing It was no exception!

Leif Andersson and Malena Winterset both have obligations...one to his country, one to her mother. Neither of them are looking for love, romance, marriage or babies, but what they end up finding is so much more than what they ever expected. Leif and Malena’s journey is an emotional one and with one last mission that will take Leif away, everyth

This wasn't your typical surprise baby story, Leif and Malena wasn't what I expected but they were a delight. Loads of chemistry from the start and their banter is fun and real. It was fast but meaningful too. I enjoyed it more than I thought I would.

The baby part was just part of the interesting twist to their relationship I would say in that it affected how things played out. While I believe honesty could've made the drama less it also made them face their past and look forward to the future.

Both Leif and Malena were great characters. I loved their initial meet and greet and how Leif kept pursuing her until she finally gave in. They had it all figured out, an arrangement that worked perfectly for them until it didn't.

This book was amazing! It was emotional, romantic, raw, full of drama and a HEA.

From chapter one, I couldn’t put it down. It pulled me in and had me needing to what happens next. The deeper I got into the book, the more I fell in love!

I will admit, it had me in tears a few times, but that’s how I know that this is a great book!

If you like emotional romances, with a bit of drama and a few twists this is the book to read. It’s a must read! I doubt you’ll be disappointed!

I loved this book. It had romance, angst, drama, HEA and emotion.
I cried reading this that to me makes it a great book. If a book can make me feel every emotion just by going through the chapters. Then its acheived what the author set out to do.

Navy Seal meets Party Planner.

Leif took the assignment in Bronze Bay because he needed a change. A little bit of a slower pace. Malena has been there for ages, working & taking care of her ailing mother.

They meet and hit it off, it’s a fun flirtation. She’s not in any position to dedicate herself to a relationship and he just doesn’t want one. So, mutually, they decide to just have fun with it. Enjoy each others company and bodies.

Then, before you know it, feelings happen. Bonds form betw

Mostly good

The last few chapters, and ending was far fetched. I can't say more without it being spoilers.
This is definitely a story of insta-love, and stupid decisions.
Editing needed tweaking.

Super fun and sexy banter
Tossing It is SO Good!! Leif Andersson is a Navy Seal. When he relocates to Bronze Bay his very close (and maybe a little overbearing) family follows him there. Leif has an OTT loving family and his sisters Eva and Celia are amazing!! I immediately fell in love with them! Leif is not looking for romance. Especially in a small town where everyone knows your business.

Y'all. I need a minute to compose myself. I picked up this gorgeous ARC and thought to myself, O.M.G., Rachel Robinson is so adorable on Facebook. Her family is so cute. This is going to be the cutest love story of all time. Little did I know, cutie pie Rachel was going to drag my heart through a roller coaster before allowing me to keep my heart in tact. This book is seriously ALL THE FEELS.

Memorable

There aren’t many books in this genre I remember a few days, sometimes even a few hours, after I read them. Crazy Good was one. This will be another.
The primary thing that makes a book memorable for me is that it tells a good story and is populated by interesting and authentic characters. This series, set in a near future where we are fighting fighting a real war against organized terrorists at home, has multiple SEAL bases around the country, including the one set in this sleepy Florid

"There's a freedom up here. A recognition of how small we really are in this big, wide world. How impossible is it that one person actually finds the other one they are meant for? How impossible it seems. Except, at this moment, that one human, is strapped to my chest. A part of me."

I love secret/surprise baby stories and add a hot sweet SEAL and it’s perfect.

Leif’s life doesn’t allow compromises or love, much less kids, being a SEAL the last thing he needs is to leave someone behind and broken. He makes all these things clear before starting whatever with someone.

Malena’s life hasn’t being easy, caring for her ill mother, she doesn’t have time for her and after her personal life is not going as she wanted she will only focus in giving her mother a good life. But when a

So just when I think Rachel Robinson has written all the feels and can't slay me again...she does. Malena and Leif are perfection. Period.

Malena is a native of Bronze Bay. She was a secondary character in Keeping It and while I loved her there, I was so glad to see her get her own book. We get to know her a lot better and see what makes her tick. Her mother has Alzheimer's or dementia and her father took off when her mom was diagnosed. Malena has b

It is the second book in the series but it could be read as a standalone, the previous book is fabulous so I suggest that you start at the beginning.

Ah I absolutely adored this book. Such a sweet well written story that flowed off the pages with wonderfully likeable characters, I couldn't help but get swept away by Malena and Leif's journey.

When Leif and Malena decide to embark on a no-strings relationship, with no feelings and no true commitments, they think things will be smooth sailing. Leif is committed to his job as a Navy Seal, and knows that his job requires his utmost attention and commitment to his country.

Rachel grew up in a small, quiet town full of loud talkers. Her words were always only loud on paper. She has been writing stories and creating characters for as long as she can remember. After living on the west coast for many years she recently moved to Virginia Beach, VA.
