You won't want to miss a single one!
Navy SEAL Noah Coleman knows how to do two things well: underwater demolition and hand-to-hand combat. So renewing his enlistment is a no-brainer until he receives a message about his cousin’s aggressive terminal cancer. A quick trip home confirms the worst, which means his niece Bella will become his responsibility.
Elementary school guidance counselor Teagan Shaw has known Bella since her son announced the two were best friends. The shy little girl is also on Teagan’s radar because of Bella’s early signs of gifted aptitude. But Teagan is more concerned about the military man thrust into the role of single parent.
While Noah adjusts to civilian life and Eagle’s Ridge, he and Teagan begin forging a friendship. But Teagan has a secret, a shadowy figure from her past who is intent on returning to torment her.
Don't miss any of the sexy soldiers!

Sweet & Hot
It took me a couple of chapters to figure out who was who in Noah, as far as the secondary characters. Likely because Noah is book #7 in the collaboration, but once I settled into the story it all flowed smoothly in that can’t-put-it-down way.
I loved that Noah and Teagan develop a friendship before they dove into a relationship. For Cristin’s Titan fans, it’s a slight departure from her usual style. There’s no imminent danger to throw the couple together. Unless you count the color pink, tutus, and glitter as imminent danger to a former Navy SEAL, then yes, there’s lots of that. But Noah and Teagan’s relationship builds like a slow burn before it finally rages to life.
When the threat did make an appearance it was a tad unbelievable, but whatever. It’s a romance book, I read it for the fairytale.
I loved Bella and Will. If only my own kids got along that well. *Sighs wistfully* Like I said, I read it for the fairytale.
Although I’ve only read this one book in the collaboration, I’m very intrigued by the rest of them and they’ve been added to my TBR stack. Loved this concept. Loved the book.
lovin' Noah and his family!
As any good SEAL does, Noah Coleman quietly infiltrated my heart and captured it completely!! I can't tell you how many times this man just breathing made me swoon and fall harder in love with him!! And if his mere breathing presence did that for me -- just imagine what happens when he's being all protective, confident, alpha male!!
Cristin Harber writes stories that just work for me - and Noah and Teagan (and Will and Bella)'s story continues in the same manner as expected: I can't wait to dive in, and I don't want to leave!
Noah struggles to find how to make his calling work with his new reality - and comes up with a plan and team to make it happen (like a SEAL would!). Teagan makes me want to be a better mom, friend, encourager, and listener. Put the two of them together with the love they have for their kids and things grow and explode beautifully! Then there's the sweetness that's Bella and Will -- those kids simply melted my heart!
This is a fun, sweet, cute, and just happy-feel-good kinda story with a touch of suspense and swoony-man-doing-his-protection-calling-well kinda book that pulled me in and made me want to start all over at the beginning just because I could. You don't want to miss this!
