Tall, Dark & Dangerous/SEAL Team Ten #12
Navy SEAL Lieutenant Jim “Spaceman” Slade’s got a problem. A SEAL Team is only as fast as its slowest member—and right now, thanks to his battered knees—that’s Jim. He reluctantly takes medical leave, but he’s a SEAL, so he spends his “vacation” as an instructor, helping out a former senior chief who runs a camp for SEAL wannabes. But to Jim’s shock, he finds himself falling for the one woman attending the camp session—an obviously brilliant but seemingly timid lawyer who is determined to do everything her way, no matter how wrong.
Ashley DeWitt’s got a problem, too. She’s a kickass lawyer, but when it comes to her personal life, she’s a total pushover. When she finds herself hiding behind her condo Dumpster to avoid a confrontation with an ex, she decides enough is enough and signs up for a session at a camp called SEAL World, in hopes she’ll discover how to be more assertive outside of the courtroom. And then she’s assigned to Jim’s team...
When an alpha male—smart, funny, strong, but terrified of a future trapped behind a desk—collides with a smart, funny, and quietly strong woman with a troubled past, sparks fly hot and fast.
The tall, dark, and dangerous Navy SEALs of Team Ten are back, with reader favorites like Lucky, Joe Cat, Bobby Taylor and his wife Colleen, Thomas King, Rio Rosetti—and with Suzanne Brockmann’s signature blend of love, laughter, and a hint of danger in SEAL Camp.

You’re in for a treat!
If you’ve never read one of Suzanne Brockmann’s books, you’re in for a treat! Yes, it is Book 12 in the Tall, Dark and Dangerous series but if you are new to the world of SEALs, you will have no trouble diving into Jim and Ashley’s story. While there are characters from the previous novels, their back stories are not integral to the plot. Ashley is a lawyer who specializes in cases of domestic abuse and fights ferociously for others but isn’t good at standing up for herself. She decides to attend SEAL Camp to learn how to be more assertive in her personal life. Navy SEAL Jim “Spaceman” Slade has injured his knees one too many times and takes a position as instructor at the SEAL Camp as he tries to decide if there is life outside the SEAL teams and what direction his future holds. Their story will have you laughing and sniffling and wanting more of Suzanne’s story telling. Lucky for us, there are lots of her books out there and, she promises, more in store.
Love this author and her amazing SEALS
Once again, Ms. Brockmann has allowed us a glimpse inside the lives of Navy SEALS. The characters in this story are real people with heart and flaws, making it eminently believable.
While the book is a stand alone novel, the chance to catch up with old friends makes it pure joy. Ashley and Jim are characters that will touch you and make you love them in spite of their mistakes.
