Rating: 4 stars
I think I picked this book up as a free download on Amazon a while back. Harlequin books are usually good for a decent read, and I've found over the last few years that I prefer their Blaze series over some of the others. There is a little more spice to the romance.
That being said,
A SEAL's Surrender is the best Harlequin title I've read in a while.
There were a lot of things I liked about this book. First was it's two main characters, Cade and Eden. They grew up as neighbors, so there wasn't the need to invent a believable way for them to meet and get to know each other. The connection was already there, all they needed was a catalyst to get things moving in the right direction.
While I had a basic idea of how things would eventually unfold, the author a good job with keeping my interest. I love romance novels. They are just about all I read. However, I do have a slight pet peeve that occurs in way too many books within the genre and unfortunately this book had it as well. I hate when lies or miscommunication is what tears couples apart. It's a common trope, but one I despise. It makes the the characters seem immature and not truly ready for an adult relationship.
Even still, I enjoyed this book and will probably check out more of this author's work. There were a few editing issues, however they didn't take away from my overall enjoyment of the story.
I recommend this story for those who like romances that revolve around strong military heroes and happily ever afters.
