Review: Tawny Weber is known for writing stories with sexy Navy SEALs. I  have read many of them that were part of the Harlequin Blaze line. This is the second book in the Team Poseidon series. Uh, not sure how I missed the first book, but I did. Bad me!

This is a novel of second chances. (God I've been reading a lot of these lately) Elijah and Ava were married before and they are very different people now, but they still have feelings for each other. Ava is now working in a gym. Ava reminded me a little of one of Tawny's past heroines with that career choice. If you've read her Uniformly Hot series, Ava reminded me of Livi.

Ava and Elijah are very hot when they are together. Tawny makes those scenes full of spice and steam. I wish I could say I loved Ava, but she wasn't quite my favorite heroine. She's the type of person, I know I'd avoid in real life, not that she would't be a nice person, but she was way to "health conscious" for me. Definitely suitable for a Navy SEAL wife, but not for someone's BFF.

Her back story with Elijah is a pretty sad one, which is why I couldn't hate her. Her family was controlling and she really didn't find her inner strength until after their relationship dissolved and she lost a child while married to Elijah.

The driving force of this story was the mission involving the dirty SEAL and the possibility that another member of Poseidon might be bad as well.

The rekindling romance of Ava and Elijah was a little ho hum for my tastes, it just happened, with a small amount of conflict, but not enough to make that part of the story interesting enough for me. It was more, Elijah is back..and boom...they are falling back into things together.

I enjoyed this book, especially getting to know Elijah's team members. I can't wait to read this next book. (and the first)
