Review: You Were Always Mine by Cerise DeLand
I love reading anything from Cerise DeLand! This is actually the first in her new series 7 Brides for 7 Seals. ** I was given a copy of this in exchange for an honest review.** I like reading romances and the hotter the guy the better. I was not disappointed by this story. It was short so not a lot of time was wasted with background characters or unnecessary "fillers". It was a fast, steamy, and touching read.
Nick Reardon is a Navy Seal who lives his life a day at a time with no intention of having any complicated romantic relationships. His line of work makes it hard for him to settle down and have a "real" relationship so he is content to lead the life of a bachelor. Then an unexpected meeting at an airport leaves him reeling. He is instantly struck by the beauty in front of him who graciously upgraded his ticket as a thank you for his service . Not only is she a knockout but he has the very distinct feeling that he knows her from somewhere. He makes it his mission to figure out why he is so attracted to her and just how he knows her.
Abigail Stuart was just trying to make a nice gesture to the Seal in the airport. She was on her way to see her brother, also a Seal, in the burn unit in San Antonio. She spotted the "scrumptious SEAL with the sunny hair and aqua eyes and the sex appeal of a Trojan warrior" from a mile away". Nick is the very last guy she should be interested in but their attraction was electric and undeniable.
Nick and Abby are almost magnetically drawn to each other and it doesn't help that they are the only 2 able to see some ghostly visitors that seem to be encouraging the couple to take a chance on each other. The chemistry between them is well written and very hot. The biggest surprise for me was the supernatural element to the story. I love history and supernatural type things so it was a perfect fit for me. I look forward to reading the next installment!
My official vote: 4 out of 5 stars ( not 5 because I wish it had been longer lol)
