He's a Navy SEAL. She's his sister's annoying best friend... and now she's missing. In Tijuana. And he has to find her. During his leave. F*ck.

Copy received from author for an honest review - thanks Cat!

As always, Cat Johnson had me at SEAL.

The title can be a bit misleading, as there isn't much Tijuana nights happening - maybe more California Nights would be better - but this could just be me.

Gabby and Zach's enemies to loves story is hot hot hot, with sexual tension out the wazoo! As much as they dislike each other, you know they really don't and as a reader, I couldn't wait for them to finally hook up.

Was great to see a bit of our ot

Hot Seal, Tijuana Nights is my first Cat Johnson and I was not disappointed! An adversaries to lovers story that spans more than a decade but also has great pacing and some really fun moments.

A suspenseful romantic comedy (it seems like a strange combo but it works), Hot SEAL, Tijuana Nights is a fun adventure featuring Zach and Gabby, two people who have known each other for over a decade but have never gotten close. Zach met Gabby when she was his sister’s college roommate, and he thought she was a bad influence on his sister so he formed an immediate dislike for her. Gabby has always thought that Zach is sexy, but his dislike of her made her avoid him. When Zach’s sister asks Gabb ...more

This is entertaining and romantic. Zach has treated Gabby badly because he heard something, then jumped to a conclusion that wasn't true. Gabby has been in love with Zach almost from the minute they met, but knows that nothing will come of it because he hates her. Zach's sister Amanda is Gabby's best friend, and when she's trying to start an interior designer career, Amanda hires Gabby to do it while he's deployed. Unfortunately Zach comes home much earlier than they thought he was, and catches ...more

This book had all the elements I love to read! First off, it's written by Cat Johnson and her books never disappoint! Also, the story had a Navy SEAL, and he was hot!! The story grabbed me in from the beginning, and it was hard to put it down when I had to!!

In college, Gabby and Amanda were roommates as well as best friends! That's Zach's first encounter with Gabby! Unfortunately, he had to see her through the years and he tried to avoid her at all cost! Fast forward ten years, and he's returnin

This book opens with Zack deployed and his sister Amanda interfering once again. This time she recruits her best friend Gabby to redecorate her grandmother's home which was now Zack's. Of course Zack knows nothing about any of this, other than Amanda had been telling him to do it for a long time.

Gabby's fledgling interior decorating business is floundering, so much so that she focused entirely on her jobs instead of the fact that she had to vacate her apartment because of the building's new owne

This is my first read by Cat Johnson, and I got this as an ARC.

I have to say this, military romance books are my weakness and Cat did not disappoint! I loved this book from beginning to end.
I didn’t want to put it down and just had to figure out what happens with Zach and Gabby!!

I was hooked right as soon as Gabby walked in on Zach in the shower thinking it was his sister, talking about the hot guy she saw in the Navy shirt walking into their dorm. Little did she know it was him she saw and he w

This book is fantastic and brilliantly written! The storyline is amazing, witty, funny, intriguing, and engaging; the scenes are detailed and descriptive it was very easy to picture myself there watching it unfold. The drama, ups and downs, and the beautiful ending make for a really enjoyable read. Loveable characters – their chemistry is powerful, undeniable, intense, and off the charts hot. A really engaging read that will grip you from beginning to end. Definitely recommended.

Love, Love, this series and Tijuana Nights is no exception. The story being Zach Browne who has rarely given Gabby Lee a thought until he comes home from deployment and she is in his shower - Gabby was hired by Zach's sister to remodel his house while he is on deployment, but when he gets home it's a total Deja Vu. She is certain this animosity between them will never turn into anything and it's great to find this out.

Awesome contemporary military romance. The characters are fun and interesting. Ms. Johnson developed both the characters and storyline so that it's easy to follow and draws the reader in. The blurb gives a tidbit of information about what to expect. Yet there is intrigue, suspense, humor as well as a hot SEAL to add hot romance. I received a complementary copy of this book via Booksprout and chose to write a review. I look forward to reading future books by Ms. Johnson.

Zach and Gabby have known each 10 years. She is his sisters best friend so he kept his distance. She thinks he hates her, but she has been interested since they met.
It is a sweet romance, with a bit of action but not a full out Seal military, guns blazing type.
I really enjoyed it and found it funny and is written from a female perspective.

I really enjoyed reading about the new group of Navy Seals. I love the characters from this how they each have their own personalities. I love that pervious characters show up unexpectedly in the story. Though I would like to know what the characters from the first series where it started are up to. I would recommend that anyone who loves romance and Navy Seals read this series as well as the books that started it .

Wow what a way to start a book. Love this prequel. Talk about one hating and one loving the other. Can't wait to read the full novel to see how they are going to go from this to see where it ends up.

Zach thinks Gabby in not good enough to be friends with his sister and hopes that after this year his sister will get a new roommate. But he also doesn't like who she is dating either. Will that happen?

From annoying friend of his little sister, Gabby finds a place in Zach's heat but not in her plans for her life. This is a hort read with lots of action, great world building and background into the characters to really get you invested in the story.. I loved it and plan to read much more.

Zach and Gabby were meant for each other. It just took Zach a while to figure it out. Cute and sexy story showing Zach as an active Seal and Gabby as a up cycle designer. The characters were portrayed very well as strong and dynamic individuals. Good read!

It's been years since I read a book by this author. After reading this story, I have to ask myself why. The story-line flowed. Zach was HOT and his chemistry with Gabby sizzled. It definitely won't be as long before I read something else by this author.
