The second in the Alpha Ops novella series that features an alpha Navy SEAL and the librarian who brings him to his knees.
Jack Powell never planned on leaving the Navy, but his final mission as a SEAL left him with a tremor and a bad case of nerves. He's home, taking some college classes and trying to figure out what comes next when he meets Erin Kent, a divorced college librarian with an adventurous bucket list and a mission to get her ex-husband's voice out of her head. Jack guides Erin through skydiving and buying the motorcycle of her dreams, blithely accepting Erin's promise that their relationship is purely temporary. But when Jack gets the chance to go back into the shadowy world of security contracting, can he convince Erin to break her word and join him on the adventure of a lifetime?
The SEAL’s Rebel Librarian by Anne Calhoun
A sweet and sexy, light read that had me smiling from start to finish.
This was my first time reading this author. Honestly, the title really caught my attention – rebel librarian? Who can pass that up? This book did live up to the title in some ways. It certainly had it’s share of adrenaline junkie moments. And, while the librarian was just learning to be a rebel, I admired her courage and determination to step outside of her comfort zone.
There were a few things that seemed a bit forced and perhaps a tad cliche … but I had no problem overlooking those. This was a nice quick read that delivered with a decent story-line and a cute set of characters that managed to keep my interest right til the end.
Not sure if I’ll be searching out more to read from this author right away … but definitely an option for future reads.
