His Mission: Babysit a fitness queen with a hands-on approach!

Navy SEAL Mitch Donovan always plays to win. The push-up contest at the Halloween party should have been a piece of cake. Except that the cake in question is a hot woman dressed as a delicious dessert. Now the only exercise on Mitch's mind is restraint…

Livi Kane may be The Body Babe, but she has zero confidence. This hunky SEAL, however, makes her forget everything—except for a workout involving his hot, naked bod and a whole lot of sexy, sweaty delight. But Mitch has his secrets—and Livi certainly has hers. All it will take is one unexpected encounter to turn this steamy attraction into an even bigger secret that will start showing any day now…

My Review:

This novel is so sinfully hot that it sizzles at times. Yet at the same time, it’s also decadently sweet & emotional. I really appreciated the way that Weber developed the romance in tandem with the complex and intriguing lives of these main characters. Not only that, but the premise for this novel was definitely unique and kept my attention. Weber had me laughing out loud more than once. I loved the mix of fitness videos with the Navy SEALs. It was fantastic. Weber made the military an integral part of this novel, rather than simply mentioning it as a career choice for her hero.

I quite enjoyed the main characters in this novel. Weber develops the characters so that they are very similar yet at the same time polar opposites to one another. I thoroughly appreciated the way that these two grow as individuals throughout the novel. I also appreciated the fact that they were willing to look beyond themselves. The fact that they were both such fit, strong individuals made for a very compelling couple. Also, the fact that being a SEAL wasn’t simply what Mitch did for a living, but rather an integral part of who he was as an individual really brought a great many concepts home, humanizing him yet also setting him apart.

As usual, Weber has delivered a fast paced, steamy romance that kept my attention throughout. I thoroughly enjoyed it & would definitely recommend it to those looking for a steamy military based romance.
