Book Review (Amber Williams' 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.

NAVY SEAL'S MATCH by Amber Leigh Williams, Contemporary Romance, 384 pp., $6.99 (paperback) $4.49 (kindle)

Former SEAL Gavin Savitt always knew who he was—until his last deployment ended tragically. Now he’s home, his mind hijacked by trauma and the shadow of his once-perfect sight. Yet in this new hazy, unclear world, one person stands out—Mavis Bracken.

There are a million reasons why Gavin shouldn’t be with Mavis, including that she’s his best friend’s little sister. Yet he longs for her touch, her freckles and her special way with wild, skittish beasts like him. He just needs the courage to take his life back. And Mavis won’t let him give up without a fight.

“I know it’d be better for you if I left.”
“You let me be the judge of that,” she advised.
“The moment you’re burdened by me,” he said, slowly, “I’m out of here.”
She didn’t agree. No. Instead, she raised herself onto her toes.
Gavin’s eyes closed and his breath hitched as her kiss washed breathily over his lips and blew him away. Answers cropped up inside him, bright like candles. His hand moved to the back of her head, no more able to snuff them out than he was to convince her to walk away.

Amber Leigh Williams is a romance writer who lives on the US Gulf Coast. She lives for beach days, the smell of real books and spending time with her husband and their two young children. When she’s not keeping up with rambunctious little ones (and two large dogs), she can usually be found reading a good book or indulging her inner foodie. Amber is represented by the D4EO Literary Agency.

Amber’s latest book is the contemporary romance, Navy SEAL’S Match.
