About TAKEN BY THE SEAL
Now that I’ve taken her, I’m never letting her go.
Taking Olivia hadn’t been my plan. I’d been prepping my cabin in the woods for my own getaway.
I’m an ex-SEAL, but my instincts are still strong. One glimpse of her innocent, terrified eyes and I know I need to save her. I’d been working with the bad buys, but all it takes is one look at Olivia and I’m back playing the hero, rescuing the damsel in distress.
Now we’re in my remote cabin, hidden away from the world. My little curvy virgin is looking up at me with a mix of innocence, fear, and desire.
The need to possess is burning through my veins. She thinks she needs to escape.
She’s not going to escape.
She’s going to be mine.

Taken By the Seal is an enjoyable read but it didn’t WOW me. I thought this storyline had such great potential when I read the blurb, but something just fell flat for me.
What I was kind of expecting when I decided to read this book, was that it was going to be like a romantic suspense type story, but it really isn’t. The part of the story that takes place around 70 – 80% mark is what I thought would happen throughout the whole book.
I loved that the story starts out right away on the first page. We are delved into Olivia’s life and trouble right away and that sucked me in. It kept my attention throughout most of the story, but there were parts that I felt were too slow. We got a lot of inner monologue in this book and to me that slows down the pace of the story. I also felt that the storyline focused a little too much on sex. Either the act of sex or the sexual tension between Knox and Olivia. I think some of that could’ve been left out and more of the suspense aspect could’ve been brought in.
In this book we follow Knox and Olivia. Olivia is an innocent girl who is just trying to make it on her own. She comes from a not so great upbringing. Her mom moved her around a lot as a kid and her dad was nonexistent. So Olivia decides to start roots in Chicago. Little did she know that her life was about to change!!! Knox is an ex-Navy SEAL. Trained in many things. Knox saw a lot of things during his enlistment and has decided the best course of life is for him to be secluded by himself. So he came to Chicago after leaving the Navy to check on his little sister and take a few jobs to get him ready to escape into his own world. Little did he know that his life was about to change when he saw Olivia.
Knox is truly an Alpha Male. At times I didn’t see him as a good fit for Olivia. Maybe it was because she was a little too innocent. I just wish we could’ve seen more of his sweeter side, I think the connection would’ve been stronger for me then.
I know this review sounds like I really didn’t enjoy this book, but I did. It just isn’t my favorite of this authors. Just because this wasn’t a 5 star read for me, don’t let my thoughts and feelings sway you away from reading this book. I think many will love this book!!
