As the leader of an off-the-books black ops SEAL team, Luke Scott can’t afford for anyone to discover the truth about who he is or what he does. But when a critical mission gets botched by a member of an iconic Hollywood family, he’ll have to fight to protect his team’s identity, as well as keep

Luke Scott always puts his career and his nation's safety first, there's no room for relationships with those outside his team. His job, the operations he takes, they're as classified as it gets and there is no room for error. Set to play bait, Luke is unprepared for the beautiful, smart woman who puts a wrench in the plans and leaves him playing babysitter.
Eva Sharp is happy in her role as a writer and co-producer on the hit TV

And voilà another winner by Brittney Sahin! Where were you all these years? Seriously!? How come Brittney’s book are not more known?
The books she writes always hit their mark! Hell they are all so good I wanna keep talking about them for days!! And that’s when you know you have someone to follow. And that’s when you know there needs to be some kind of justice because some authors are not seen/known at their worth! Brittney is definitely one!

Eva is the daughter of a famous Hollywood movie director/producer; she wants to prove to herself that she can make it in Hollywood on her own, so she changes her name and works on a TV show about SEALs. When her show wraps four days early so she can start her three week break right away, she decides to ignore the conditions on the rental contract she agreed to for five times her normal asking price and go to her property and stay in her cabin – because the renter indicated he was only going to u ...more
The first book in the Stealth Ops series by Brittney Sahin. Eva Sharp finds herself caught in a deadly situation. Luke Scott is the leader of black ops SEAL team, working off the books, of course. When Eva comes along, he has no choice but to take her with him to keep her alive.

It was a pleasant and entertaining read. I think I will try this writer again.

If I could give this book 6 stars I would! I am so impressed!
This is my first SEAL book, and first book written by Brittney Sahin, but it won’t be my last. I am so impressed with not only the writing style of the book, but the detail, and knowledge it took to write this type of book. I am personally blown away!
Great book!
I can’t wait to read more.
DNF at 40%. The writing was OK. I’m a big fan of military romance, and I don’t mind suspending some believability for a good story, but I’m putting this book down because after less than 48 hours this super SEAL/Black Ops/BestOfTheBest Operator is spilling mission secrets. Not to mention the fact that it took 40% of the book to get us through 48 hours of “action”. Really, there was about 5% action and the rest was...

Her: Tell Me.
Him: No.

I don't know if it was just me, but everything seemed convoluted. From the op down to the romance, it was all very rushed in storytelling and explanation. Did someone out a word limit on this publication?

Not bad for the author's first installment but I won't be reading any more of this series.

It's just.. not good.
"How long will we be holed up together?"
"Hopefully, only a few days. I'm not looking forward to this."
"Yeah, me either, Captain Commando."
"If you did your research, you'd know SEALs don't like that term."
She lifted a brow. "What makes you think I don't know that?"
--Eva & Luke

Loved this one! It was filled with surprising heart, action, snark, sexy alpha heroes, and worthy females that all blended together seamlessly and kept me reading. Eva is a writer for a Hollywood show about Navy SEALs when

I loved the whole story and the action AND the suspense.
I loved the romance as well and the banter of Luke & Eva was funny

Really recommend this book has the right balance

Rcvd an ARC at no cost to author..It has been a while that I have read a book from this author and let tell you she remind you why we chose her romance suspense books. Brittney is back! We meet Luke who is on a mission that gets goes wrong and ends up meeting Eva who he will now have to protect. Eva doesn't have clue what is going on and these two are not crazy about each on the onset but they have some pretty hot chemistry brewing. Eventually they give in and have hot night but that is all they ...more

Ok, so I was slightly surprised that I liked this as much as I did. I wasn't expecting to especially in the very beginning. I remember thinking..."man, this is another one of those duds." But I really enjoyed it and only found a few disappointments and that would be use of deity and other strong (unnecessary in my opinion) language.

I loved that the way the heroine (Eva) was strong and soft at the same time and I loved the attraction that her and Luke had together. It was amazing and completely b

I received an arc from the author for an honest review!

Luke is the leader of an off-the-books black ops SEAL team. Who's on a critical mission. He meets Eva and his whole mission goes pear shaped.

Eva is a writer and co-producer for a hit TV series. She ends up having some time off and decides to go away to her cabin for some peace and quiet.

But she gets alot more then she bargained for when she meets Luke lol.

This book.... it has everything romance, action, suspence and plot twists.

Luke ♡ Damn

So my first Brittney Sahin book was "Finding Her Chance" with Liam and I read it as a stand alone.
I thought it was meh so I didn't think I would try another Sahin book, but on a whim, decided to read the first book of her Stealth OPs series.

I love Luke. He's sexy as hell and the perfect complement for someone like Eva (Everly.)

The main problems I had with this book, however, is that if you take away a few angsty and meaningful scenes, it's incredibly shallow and kind of brainless especially if

I kinda got over the fact that this woman was annoyingly too stupid to listen to the hot agent when he said run into the woods far far away coz the bad guys are coming.
I couldn’t get over the fact that when our hero talked about having to hand her over to the next team so he could get on with his FUCKING JOB she refused to let him leave her.
I can’t do with selfish, needy and short sighted people. And Eva was just that.
I have to say that although I didn’t like the heroine I really enjoy

4.5 Stars

This is the first book in the Stealth Ops series. Luke Scott is on a mission and he is using a remote cabin to become bait for a bunch of bad men. Enter Eva Sharp. She is s script writer for a SEAL based tv series and she is escaping to her family’s cabin to escape for a time. It didn’t matter to her that her tenant wanted to be alone in the remote location. There were two cabins and he was acres away from where she would be. Turns out her presence puts a huge thorn into Luke’s mission

From the first page, I was hooked. Luke is rugged and closed off, yet still willing to sacrifice everything for those he loves.

Eva is hiding secrets of her own as well.

So many great moments and it seems this author has created an amazing romantic thriller. This is a book I will recommend to my friends!

Brittney Sahin does an amazing job of intertwining these two characters. All without revealing too much about them at first. The reader finds that their knowledge of them progresses with the book

Great book!!!

And to think I almost didn’t read this book....well I I am on a roll because I just enjoyed the heck out of this book. I am on a good book roll!!!

I had never heard of Brittany Sahin, but I love military romance/suspense and throw in some SEALS and I figured...why not.

This is the first in the series so we meet the team, get some backstories but mainly we are focused on Luke and Eva/Everly. Each are guarded and closed off for their own reasons and watching the walls break and come bac

Finding His Mark is the first book in Brittney Sahin's, Stealth Ops series, and it is a winner. I can't wait to read the rest of the books in this new series. Luke Scott is a member of the Stealth Ops team and has always kept his emotions under strict control. He can't afford the distraction of caring for anyone. When Eva Sharp's a writer and co-producer for the hit TV series SEAL Security unexpectedly shows up on Luke's doorstep all of Luke's carefully laid plans go up in smoke. Not only had Ev ...more

This is a fab start to the new series by Brittney Sahin. Luke and Eva's story had me hooked right from the first few pages and kept me firmly in its grasp until I had finished every thrilling page.

The chemistry between Luke and Eva is brilliantly stoke throughout this suspenseful and dramatic story and the will they, won't they element (or rather should they, shouldn't they being more appropriate), leads to a beautiful piece of writing and ending that made me smile! I love how Luke has suc

She draws you in and hooks you from the start which then makes it impossible to put the book down. This is the first book in her new Stealth Ops series and OMG you will not be disappointed and if this is how it’s starting out, we are in for a great ride!!

Every book I read of Brittney Sahins I absolutely love. Her books have love,suspense,mystery and romance. . As your reading you feel what the characters feel.
This book is about Luck and Eva Luke hides his heart and feelings because of the job he does. He doesn’t ever want to get someone hurt or killed until he meets Eva. Eva is a writer but that’s her made up name. Her family is rich and famous for writing and making movies. Eva doesn’t want to live in the spotlight so that’s why she doesn’t go

Finding His Mark was the best kind of surprise! I was very much impressed with every aspect of it by this new-to-me author. It had such an authentic feel to it, and I didn’t notice a single error. The intrigue, characters, plot, and romance were written sharply and with believable dialogue. I look forward to reading more from this author.

Talk about marksmanship and hitting a bullseye...Sahin is spot on.

Luke Scott is a member of an Elite Seals OP Team that doesn't exist. Yet it's mere possibility keeps the wolves at bay. But when he encounters a sweet little lamb like Eva Sharp, well Luke isn't prepared. But Eva understands Luke's secrecy and smoke screens because she's living an undercover life as well. But lines get blurred, crossed and erased. The couple begin to work together to bring down a growing empire of destruction. Bu

Amazing beginning to a new series. I was hooked from the start-suspense, intrigue and sexy times abound. I wasn’t so sure about Luke at the start but before long he changed my mind. He and Eva had chemistry from the start.

Loved the men (and lady) on the team and can’t wait for more Stealth Ops adventures.

Oh wow I Loved this Action packed Romantic suspense story.
Full of adventure and drama Luke and Eva are such a scorching hot couple whose chemistry was like an inferno.
Luke is a member of a Stealth Ops team, Eva spoils his mission and he has to protect her.
They both have secrets, they both don't expect to fall in Love.

“And how do I make you feel?” He leaned in closer, his mouth hovering near hers. A teardrop hit her parted lips. “Seen,” she whispered.

I loved this book, Brittney! YOU really hit the mark! Haha!
