Now he'll risk everything—even his recovery—to keep Mandy Berg's attacker at bay. Mandy's been burned before when she trusted the wrong man. And she knows better than to develop feelings for one of her patients. Yet how can she help falling for a man who does not hesitate to put his strength, his skill and his very life in harm's way to keep her safe? Relying on anyone feels dangerous…but turning away Luke's protection could be deadly.
Men of Valor: These Navy SEALs were born to excel…
My thoughts: NAVY SEAL SECURITY is the fourth book in Ms. Johnson's Men of Valor series. There are some appearances of former characters in the series, but NAVY SEAL SECURITY stands alone. I enjoyed getting to know Luke and Mandy -- though don't judge a book by the cover. There is NO way the cover model was a SEAL -- or even in the Navy. I married a military man.
I did figure out the whodunit right away. I've read enough romantic suspenses that I'm rarely caught by surprise. That said, I didn't figure out the why. And as the characters chased down possible leads the villain trailed them, keeping Mandy and Luke guessing. I had to keep reading to find out what the villain had against Mandy. 5 five star romantic suspense.
