Review: SEAL of Honor by Tonya Burrows

Title: SEAL of Honor

Author: Tonya Burrows


It’s a good thing Gabe Bristow lives and breathes the Navy SEAL credo, “the only easy day was yesterday,” because today, his life is unrecognizable. When his prestigious career comes to a crashing halt, he’s left with a bum leg and few prospects for employment that don’t include a desk.

That is, until he’s offered the chance to command a private hostage rescue team and free a wealthy American businessman from Colombian paramilitary rebels. It seems like a good deal—until he meets his new team: a drunk Cajun linguist, a boy-genius CIA threat analyst, an FBI negotiator with mob ties, a cowboy medic, and an EOD expert as volatile as the bombs he defuses. Oh, and who could forget the sexy, frustratingly impulsive Audrey Van Amee? She’s determined to help rescue her brother—or drive Gabe crazy. Whichever comes first.

As the death toll rises, Gabe’s team of delinquents must figure out how to work together long enough to save the day. Or, at least, not get themselves killed.Because Gabe’s finally found something worth living for, and God help him if he can’t bring her brother back alive.


5 out of 5 stars

After reading the first two books in the Wilde Security series and getting glimpses of the men of HORNET I couldn't resist buying this book. SEAL of Honor was absolutely amazing! It's a little lighter on the romance than the books in the author's companion series, Wilde Security, but that's what made Gabe and Audrey's story work. By focusing slightly more on the suspense, this book has more of a sense of urgency that gets your heart racing and prevents you from wanting to put the book down for any reason.

But just because this book is lighter on the romance doesn't mean that the romance featured is any less steamy and swoon-worthy. At a glance, Gabe and Audrey don't seem like a couple that would work but they totally do. You can't help but love the ex- Navy SEAL and the care-free artist and root for them from the moment they meet.

Unsurprisingly, I loved this book so much. As much as I loved the Wilde Security books, this book was so much better and once again I'm so happy I decided to start reading this author's books because they're all exceptional.
