Review: COVERT SEDUCTION by Callie Croix

9781426894923_p0_v2_s260x420About the book:

Navy SEAL Reid Galvin is back from hell and eager to find comfort in Becca Anderson’s arms. He knows he hurt her when he cut contact during his deployment, so when his call interrupts her date with another man, he has only himself to blame. But he can’t forget what she means to him—or the sexy email she sent him—and he won’t miss this chance to claim her as his own.

It’s been weeks since Becca heard from the man she thought she was involved with. So when Reid wants to take up where they left off as if nothing happened, she refuses. Then he rescues her from a first date gone very wrong, and she realizes she’s not quite ready to let him go.

Reid and Becca have a lot to talk about, but since she’s not listening, he’s going to have to regain her trust another way—by bringing her most erotic fantasies to life. Making her surrender to pleasure just might be his most important mission.

COVERT SEDUCTION is an erotic romantic suspense (is that a genre?). There are hot, hot sex scenes between Reid and Becca and lots of action packed scenes as the bad guys come after Becca. I enjoyed the romance between Reid and Becca. It’s sexy and sweet. However, to me the story felt disjointed. It didn’t move smoothly between the suspense and the romance. At times when the couple was being “romantic” there wasn’t a thought to what was happening around them. Becca is run off the road and almost drowns. Reid takes her home and they have some kinky sex. I couldn’t help but think that it would be hard to turn off my brain and stop wondering who wanted me dead like Becca was able to. The suspense part of the story just seemed to happen. There wasn’t a lead up to it or time for the reader to try to figure out what was happening. All of a sudden the reader is told who the bad guy is and it’s over – Becca’s safe. This story just didn’t really work for me.

the book girl gives COVERT SEDUCTION a 2/5

  1. Sounds a little disjointed to me…think I’ll skip it. The author’s name is nagging at me — gonna have to go look and see if I’ve read anything by her previously!
