A SEAL’S STRENGTH by JM Stewart (October 3, 2017; Forever Yours eBook; $3.99; Military Match Book 2)

A sizzling new series about three friends looking for love-and the sexy SEALs who are ready to fulfill their craziest fantasies.

This second chance was worth the wait . . .

As a SEAL, Gabriel Donovan did the toughest jobs imaginable without blinking an eye. But three years after his wife’s death, the idea of dating still makes him sick to his stomach. His daughter desperately needs a mother, though, and there’s nothing Gabe won’t do for his little girl.

Stephanie Mason doesn’t run from anything. Not even coming face to face with the “one that got away” on a blind date. Steph’s body vividly remembers every single thing about Gabe and while some things have changed, the way he makes her feel sure as hell hasn’t.

Gabe and Steph know that love comes with risks, but if they’re brave enough, this second chance might just bring them the love of a lifetime.

Maybe he was right. Maybe it was time she was honest with him.

Careful to keep her voice low, she turned her head and looked off down the street. Honesty might be the best policy, but she couldn’t force herself to look into that disarming hazel gaze while she said the words.

“I wasn’t prepared for this. I was prepared for a weekend. A little fun with someone I trusted once. That’s different, you know, than a hookup in a bar. But you’re…you. It’s childish, really, to still feel that way. To be jealous of a dead woman.” She heaved a sigh and finally forced herself to look at him. “But I am.”

Her insides shook as she waited. That was the most she’d ever told him. She didn’t know if she actually wanted his response and yet part of her craved it. A holdover from all those years ago. Back in college, she’d wanted him to know she’d fallen in love with him, because she’d held out this hope he’d tell her he loved her back. Pathetic that the need still hovered beneath the surface.

Those keen eyes worked her face. Then, finally, he smiled, warm and alluring. “So, dinner? Next Friday?”

There was that sexy smile she’d known would make an appearance, and she was caving, exactly the way she’d known she would.

She heaved a sigh and nodded. “Fine. You win. I’ll have dinner with you next Friday. But since I owe you for the car and clearly you’re not taking my money…”

“Nope.” He winked, eyes gleaming with playful impishness and a touch of smug self-satisfaction.

Giddy, happy little butterflies took flight in her stomach. “Then I’m cooking.”

One dark brow arched and the corners of his mouth twitched. “Can you do that?”

This time, her facade cracked. She punched him in the shoulder. “Yes, thank you very much. Contrary to popular belief, I have actually grown up.”

Those gorgeous eyes glinted at her. “So you have.”

“Friday. Six o’clock. Don’t be late.” She pivoted and marched toward her car, determined to get away from him before she embarrassed herself. As she reached into her purse, however, it hit her. Gabe had her keys. She halted, sighed, and, face hot as Hades itself, turned back.

Gabe stood grinning at her, his right arm extended. He jangled her keys, dangling from his thumb and forefinger. “Missing something?”

She rolled her eyes and strode back to him, but when she reached for the keys, he held tight to them.

“I look forward to seeing you, you know. I’ll say it again, in case you missed my point last time. Were you anybody else, that first date wouldn’t have gone this far.” He finally released her keys and winked at her. “And I won’t be late. I’m never late.”

I found A Seal’s Strength by J.M. to be a sweet story about a second chance at love for two lost and broken people.


Stephanie Mason knows heartbreak. Even so, she is willing to put her heart on the line again to find someone to share her life with. So she lets her fiends talk her into signing up to a dating service with military men, but the last man she expected to be paired with is the one man that got away and broke her heart.


Seal Gabe Donovan lost so much the last few years. The hardest being the loss of his wife. Three years later the loss is not any easier and the thought of dating more than he can bear. But he is determined to do right by his daughter, who wants him to stop being so sad. So he agrees to sign up for a dating service and get his toes wet slowly. But seeing the woman that still haunts his thoughts may be too much for him.


Steph and Gabe have history. They were once friends and lovers that shared everything together. But when tragedy strikes, Gabe walks away without explanation and Steph is left heartbroken. Gabe never forgot Steph, but when unexpected responsibilities come his way, his life led him away from her. Though he has no regrets, he loved his wife and his daughter is his world, but can he find a way to move forward and open his heart?


When Steph and Gabe are paired up on the dating site, neither is prepared to face each other, but the pull is still there between them. Can they have a casual and light relationship without losing their hearts? I loved seeing Steph and Gabe spend time together and reconnecting. Some of their discussions were hard, with so much left unsaid previously, but they were so good together.


I loved Gabe and Steph. Both were dealing with issues that were hard to let go, but slowly they found themselves connecting. But was it too late for them or could they let love in again?


A Seal’s Strength was a quick, sexy and heartwarming read. I loved Gabe and Steph. Both were strong and caring., but dealing with heartbreak and loss in different ways. Finding each other again was not planned, but could they make it work this time? A really sweet and charming story.
