The Poseidon team are hard-bodied, fiercely competitive navy SEALs. But when a sensitive mission goes disastrously wrong, three of the team's finest will have to trust their hearts and instincts to uncover the truth…
"No man left behind" is inscribed in the DNA of every SEAL and Lieutenant Diego Torres is no exception. But with a team member killed—and the body missing—Diego's honor is sorely tested. Now his career and reputation are on the line, and a traitor is hiding among them. Diego wants answers…and only one woman has them.
Single mom Harper Maclean has two priorities—raising her son Nathan and starting a new life. Her mysterious new neighbor may be impossibly charming, but Diego asks too many questions about her past—and about the father of her child. Questions she fears will reveal her burning attraction for Diego, and ultimately put them all in danger's path.
Call to Honor is a seductive tale of secrets, suspicion, and yearning passion turning into a tender adoration.
I liked how the team Poseidon was introduced, their tight brotherhood is admirable, their skills and proficiency making them the best of the best. They are willing and able to step in as needed and to sacrifice their lives if meant to be. Yet a betrayal by a team member was not something they were prepared for.
Lieutenant Diego Torres has come over the odds that were against him from the start of his life and bettered himself for a brighter future. His dignity, honesty, and love for rules, regulations, and routines make him an ideal soldier, his honed ability to control his temper a better man than most. He loves action, he loves to work out, but waiting and being still, opening up to new people, and dating aren't part of his better skills.
Harper Maclean is tough, smart, and sweet single mom, whom also has come over the odds and made a good, safe life for his son. She has spunk and courage, she is passionate about life, and there is nothing she wouldn't do for her son. Nathan is absolutely adorable, smart as a whip, caring, sweet boy who looks after his mom. I loved Harper and Nathan, the mother/son connection was truly strong and loving, making me smile constantly.
Diego and Harper were hot together, the passion between them is scorching, the developing deeper feelings are obvious, no matter how much and how often they try to convince themselves that it is only about the sex.
The main focus in the story was the failed mission, the assumedly dead SEAL member, his betrayal of the team and the country, and the necessity to find out what happened, and who is behind it, and who was helping him. I liked the intensity the suspense and the investigation gave to the story, the action towards the end picked up the heart rate. At the beginning, the plot moves on rather slowly, Diego and Harper don't even meet until about 20% into the tale. But when the story picks up, it comes addictive and engaging, the luscious craving Harper and Diego have for each other steaming up the pages, and the hunt for the treasonist members of the team heightening the tension. Not all the questions regarding the investigation were completely answered, raising up the curiosity towards the continues of the series even more, if the attractive Poseidon team hadn't already done that.
Sizzling hot romance in a middle of a vigorous investigation introduces the gorgeous, intriguing members of the Poseidon team and opens up the doors to a new, promising series that I will keep my eye on!
