Ten years of dedication to the Navy taught SEAL Jon Rudnick one thing: He's not afraid to risk life and limb for his country. But when navigating military red tape begins to present more challenges than the enemy, it makes Jon question his future. So does Alison Cressly, the woman who doesn't do one-night stands or SEALs but who broke both rules with Jon the eve of his deployment to Afghanistan. He can't get her out of his head - not while away and not now that he's back. When Ali's life is threatened and military rules won't allow him to intervene, Jon decides it's time to take back control. The question is what would a SEAL do as a civilian? Jon's got skills, drive and an idea, as well as a few teammates willing to cover his six. And he's got the hope of more with Ali. A team of sexy SEALs, a terrorist threat, and an attraction that can't be denied... it all comes together in this launch of the Hot SEALs romantic suspense series from New York Times and USA Today best-selling contemporary romance author Cat Johnson.
Night with a SEAL Hot SEALs bk1
Jon Rudnick is one of a handful of elite Navy SEALs. Constantly on dangerous missions overseas, he is home for a short time and enjoying a Fourth of July barbecue with his best friends at former teammate Rick and his sister’s home. Even though he’s unavailable for any type of longterm commitment, Ali catches his eye.
Alison (aka Ali) Cressly attends a fun get together at her coworker/friend, Darci’s home. For some reason Darci and Rick are determined to see Ali and Jon hook up, but Ali has no intentions of ever getting together with a military man. However, after a steamy one-night stand, Ali admits to herself that she wouldn’t mind being a distraction for Jon.
Overall, I really loved this novella. For a shorter length story, it is packed with intense emotions and carries a solid story. I like how the pair got to know each other over time – even though they only saw each other once in a while. Cat Johnson does a great job building in Jon’s angst over his military career, so when he makes an important decision involving his career, it’s not surprising nor does it feel contrived. The couple is well-balanced. The romance is ultra-hot and steamy. Night with a SEAL is an exciting opening to what promises to be a steamy, sexy, exciting series.
