Hot SEALs Series, Book 1
Ten years of dedication to the Navy taught SEAL Jon Rudnick one thing—he’s not afraid to risk life and limb for his country. But when navigating military red tape begins to present more challenges than the enemy it makes Jon question his future. So does Alison Cressly, the woman he can’t get out of his head.
When Ali’s life is threatened and military rules won’t allow him to intervene, Jon decides it’s time to take back control.
A team of sexy SEALs, a terrorist threat, and an attraction that can’t be denied . . .
This is the first book in a new series by author Cat Johnson. Jon Rudnick has been a Navy guy for 10 years. A Navy seal to be precise. It took a lot of work to get where he is and his body has paid the price for it. Home on a break a couple of his buddies, former Navy seals have a get together where he meets Alison Cressly. Even though they know it was a set up by one of Jon's buddies sister he still feels a instant attraction. If Alison's reaction is anything to go by she feels it too. After giving Ali a ride home their attractions sizzles into a quick fast sexual encounter that leaves both wanting more. Jon can't subject a woman to the kind of uncertain life he lives so he walks away. When Ali's life is threatened and all his Navy Seal training means nothing when he's not allowed to get involved he questions why he kept Ali at arms length and what being a seal means to him. I liked this book because i felt i could fit in with this group of people. The details of the military situations felt real. I felt the connection between John and Ali but could understand also why Jon held back. You can't spend years in the military and not know that your life is not always your own. Spouse's and significant other's have to deal with that on a daily basis. In the end Jon made the decision that was right for him. To that end a new venture is formed which i am guessing will play into future books in this series. Night with a Seal is a nice base to hopefully a great series. Can't wait to see where Cat Johnson takes us!
