His Mission: Babysit a fitness queen with a hands-on approach!

Navy SEAL Mitch Donovan always plays to win. The push-up contest at the Halloween party should have been a piece of cake. Except that the cake in question is a hot woman dressed as a delicious dessert. Now the only exercise on Mitch's mind is restraint…

Livi Kane may be The Body Babe, but she has zero confidence. This hunky SEAL, however, makes her forget everything—except for a workout involving his hot, naked bod and a whole lot of sexy, sweaty delight. But Mitch has his secrets—and Livi certainly has hers. All it will take is one unexpected encounter to turn this steamy attraction into an even bigger secret that will start showing any day now…


Review: Tawny Weber knows how to write a hot steamy military romance. This story is no different. Mitch and Livi  are similar and yet very different. A SEAL's Secret is her 6th book in the Uniformly Hot series, and if you love military romance, you'll want to read all of them.

Both are physically fit, more so than any mere mortal can expect to be. Both are at the top of their game, Mitch with his military career and Livi in her fitness career.

Mitch is an absolutely fabulous hero. He's a tough guy  but deep down he's a softie. Livi is a little bit frustrating but a very likable heroine. She seems to be steamrollered by all the people who take charge of her career, from her ex-husband to her mother. Oh god, I hated her mom until the end. Livi who is so gorgeous she can make a twinkie costume sexy, has some shyness issues. (Don't we all wish that were our only issue?)

Their relationship starts with a bet at her aunt's bar, where she and her friend Tessa crash a SEAL party. For the most part it seems like their relationship, though hot and spicy is going to be without conflict, until Livi's mom gets some ideas about a new direction for her daughter's career. Those ideas involve the SEALs and Mitch gets involved, though he's not happy about it.

I was glad, Mitch turned out more like his father than his grandfather. I like guys that end up being family men.

Once again, Tawny Weber doesn't disappoint.
