Book Review (Amber Williams' Navy Seal's Match)


Title: NAVY SEAL’S MATCH
Author: Amber Williams
Publisher: Harlequin
Pages: 384
Genre: Contemporary Romance

My Review

Gavin is a former SEAL back in his hometown struggling with his demons, both from his time with the force and from his personal life.
Mavis has known Gavin for years (he is her brother's best friend) and she has made a place for herself in her hometown, 'different' though she is. With Gavin back, she chooses to stand by him through his struggle with PTSD and more.

Amber Leigh Williams' Navy SEAL's Match does everything that a good Harlequin Romance is supposed to - envelopes you with its romance and passion, has you connect and care for the characters, feel their pain, and smile at their idiosyncrasies.

Being a part of the series - Fairhope, Alabama series - this romance has other couples from the previous books, but they merge well into the narrative. That makes this a good standalone read, but if you have read the previous books in the series, you get sweet glimpses into the 'happily ever after' of the couple you know from before.

In this book, Amber Williams has brought together two strong individuals, with their own personal struggles. Add to that the disapproval, curiosity, and support of their families, and it is a story that touches many emotions.

Note to author: Hope to read Zelda's story soon.
