seal under siege - book review and giveaway

I don't read a TON of books, but I feel like I've always got a stack on my nightstand. Some stay there longer than others and some get paged through and put back on the shelf. Some books get placed in my purse so I always have it ready to read at a moments notice when there's a break in the action. This summer I was given an advanced copy of "Seal Under Siege" and it was one of those "can't put it down, must find out how it ends" books. I took it on vacation with me and was totally paranoid that my in-laws would think I was rude because my nose was in a book for two days while I was there. I tried to only read when there was a break in the action or when I was nursing Abi but there were moments where I just couldn't put this book down.

This is book two in the Men of Valor series but it could totally be a stand alone book. You don't need to have read the first book in order to understand this one, that being said the first book was good as well and worth your time! You can find my review of the first book here. If you're looking for a good suspense with clean romance novel let this be the book you pick up!! You will not be disappointed! Below is some more information about the book and the sweet author Liz Johnson! Maybe some day I'll get to meet her...she doesn't live too far from me!

Summary: SHE'S NOT SAFE YET 
When Staci Hayes is rescued from a Mideast prison by navy SEAL Tristan Sawyer, she thinks the ordeal is over. But back in San Diego, a new threat arises. Staci has information that could prevent a hit on U.S. soil, and the terrorist will stop at nothing to silence her. Tristan insists on being her bodyguard, but his constant presence makes her long for things beyond her reach. Protecting Staci is the second chance Tristan needs to put the past behind him. Yet with a spy on the naval base, anyone could be a threat. Can he offer her safety…and love?

Excerpt:
            “You said I was safe. You said you’d protect me.”
            “I did. You made it safely home, didn’t you?” His words were short but not unkind.
            “I made it home, anyway.”
            Those blue eyes sliced into hers.
            “What does that mean?”
            “Someone has been following me, and I think it’s the same man from Lybania.”
            His arms crossed over his broad chest, the sleeves of his t-shirt pulling snug around his biceps. He looked so intimidating.
            “Did you call the police? Tell them you’re being stalked, and they can look into it for you. They can handle things like that.”
            “They wouldn’t help me.” If she had any idea how to face down the man following her on her own, she would. But since she didn’t, she had to convince the lieutenant to help.
            Taking a first step toward him, she pointed her finger at his chest. “Listen to me. I’m in trouble, but it’s not just me. I don’t know the name of the man who’s after me, but I know what I heard. He’s plotting to blow something up . . . here in San Diego.”
