    I want to start off with saying something I've never said about Liz Johnson's book. She writes for "Love Inspired." I would normally never have picked up a book with this title on it. However, I received one of her books to review years ago and loved it. So, even had she not sent me this one for review, I would have purchased it. And... I would not have regretted it. In similar style to her previous books A Promise to Protect and the FBI Special Agent Series, Seal Under Siege is packed with suspe I want to start off with saying something I've never said about Liz Johnson's book. She writes for "Love Inspired." I would normally never have picked up a book with this title on it. However, I received one of her books to review years ago and loved it. So, even had she not sent me this one for review, I would have purchased it. And... I would not have regretted it. In similar style to her previous books A Promise to Protect and the FBI Special Agent Series, Seal Under Siege is packed with suspense and not overdone romance. Somehow, Liz Johnson manages to pack all the plot, characterization, and action of a full length novel into a 226 page mass market paperback. That takes some serious skills. What I liked: This book is character driven, fast paced, action packed, and has a strong plot. I love Tristan and Staci both as individuals and then as they become a couple. I love that their relationship is believable and while you could argue that it was initially prompted by the stress and tension of their experiences, she gave it a concrete foundation too. The plot is intriguing and involves elements we all hear of, but I've never actually read in a book. Staci, a prisoner in a Middle Eastern prison, is rescued by a team of Navy Seals led by Tristan. Having overheard much and with a scrap of paper indicating a looming plot to attack America, she fights to get people to listen to her--and no one will. Even Tristan, when she brings the information to him, finds it difficult to believe but his innate desire to protect the woman he's already saved, listens, investigates, and then things really get going. And, from what I can tell, the book FEELS very well-researched. I can't verify her accuracy, but it seems to hold little nuances that show research time and attention to detail. Because this is the "Inspired" genre, I have to address the faith issue. It wasn't peachy, it wasn't "deep" but an underlying theme of "God's got this" is there and it encourages. What I didn't like: Honestly, there wasn't much. Would I have preferred it even more developed? Definitely. Did it fail not being? Not on your life. All of my "complaints" are like that. She took the limitations of her project and made them work for her. Do I recommend this book? Definitely. Just get it. I can't imagine how you'll regret it. And I want to thank her for giving me the opportunity to review again. I really appreciate it. She's a lovely woman. :)

    This was an excellent mystery on which Tristan and Staci work together to figure out a terrorist plot on American soil. Well worth the read.

Seal Under Siege is an amazing book! It begins with a tense rescue operation and never lets up. There is action and danger all through the book, with healthy doses of attraction between the two main characters. And, oh man, is there attraction between these characters! But, one of the best things about this book is that fact that BOTH of the characters have big issues in their past that make them feel that they are unworthy of being in a relationship, especially one that could end in marriage. The author did such a good job of getting my emotions all roiled up! I felt so sad for Staci and all that she thought she could never have. She is such a strong woman, who has endured much more physically and emotionally than most. And she keeps persevering, even when things get pretty hard for her in the book. Tristan is also such a well-written character. He is just the kind of hero that those of us who like romance novels look for. He is strong and smart, but also sensitive. He, however, can’t seem to let go of the past and the guilt he feels for it. Holding onto that guilt keeps him from connecting and loving again. This book is the second in a series, but is definitely able to stand alone. I am now planning on getting myself a copy of the first book in this series! I want to read Matt and Ashley’s story for myself. I highly recommend this book. (5 stars) I won this book in a contest over on http://www.barndoorbookloft.net and was sent the copy from the author. I was not required to write a review, but happily do so. http://brittreadsfiction.wordpress.co...

The excitement of this book begins right from the beginning and maintains throughout, there is a lot of subtle humor, and the female protagonist is not some wimp waiting to be rescued by a man. This is a good read, despite the genre.

    I look forward to every new release by Liz Johnson and this did not disappoint (and I was super happy to get an advance copy from her so I didn't have to wait til September.) This is the story of Tristan (Ashley's brother, if you recall her first SEAL book - but you don't need to have read it to enjoy this one.)

Navy Seals, a beautiful woman to rescue Seal Under Siege by Liz Johnson Men of Valor series Genre: Suspense, Christian Romance, Format: Kindle Timeframe: More or less current day Location: San Diego, CA Characters: Staci Hayes: Rescued from Middle East prison Tristan Sawyer: Navy seal Ashley Waterstone: Tristan’s very pregnant sister I can’t remember when I read a Harlequin or Love Inspired romance last, but I so enjoy Liz Johnson’s writing that I had to see what her Men of Valor series would be like. Navy Seals, a beautiful woman to rescue, a dangerous secret, and someone out to kill another? Well, so far it started out with a bang for me. Staci Hayes, a missionary held in a Middle East prison, is rescued by Navy Seals. But her rescuer needs to know what she knows, and what she knows could kill countless, or save lives. Navy Seal Lt.Tristan Sawyer is breaking all the rules when the young woman he rescued comes to him for help. He’s not supposed to have any contact with those he saves. But her pleas, plus a map she had on her from the prison, leads him to believe her story has merit. Taking up the role as her protector, and against all protocol, he places her at his home with his sister, believing it to be completely safe. But the man who is after her who needs to keep an extremely sensitive secret from getting out is not going to stop. This was a story full of suspense, and there seems to be no way to know who the bad guy is. But as they are working against the clock and with each other, the attraction neither Staci nor Tristan believe should ever happen just oozes off the pages. Tristan’s job keeps him at a distance from women, and Staci has a secret telling her she’s not worthy of being any man’s wife. I enjoyed the way faith fit into the story, especially at the end when his brother-in-law reminded Tristan who is really in charge of the people under his protection. The story represented the prisons of our own making. When God is in charge of details that hold us hostage, He has the power to break those bonds, and create a future we aren’t aware is even possible. Perhaps Staci’s unworthiness was mentioned about 5 times too many, but it was something that was intensely hard for her, so it worked with the story.

    Starting this novel with Seal Team 15 performing a rescue operation captured my attention immediately, and sucked me into the storyline. I enjoyed actually watching Matt and Tristan interact while they removed the hostages, and the later scenes brought in the other team members without being distracting. Staci's determination to get help from the man who rescued her matched well with Tristan's leadership qualities. The biggest qualm I had with the plot line revolved around Staci's ex-boyfriend, Starting this novel with Seal Team 15 performing a rescue operation captured my attention immediately, and sucked me into the storyline.

    Series review: yes the cover art is pretty poor. I picked this one up first and enjoyed it better than the rest of the series (read 1-4 so far). They get pretty formulaic and kinda bogged down for me. Not an awful read for a long travel day where you need a distraction, but there are better ones out there.

    Staci Hayes knew that once the Navy SEALS rescued her from Lybania the threat on her life didn't end there. Now if she can only find the one person who might be able to help her, the only person who might believe that she isn't suffering from the effects of PTSD that everyone else thinks is plaguing her, the one man whose blue eyes she looked into the night he saved her. Yet how could she find him again. She didn't even know his name, just that his team referred to him as L.T. Once a rescue missi Staci Hayes knew that once the Navy SEALS rescued her from Lybania the threat on her life didn't end there. Now if she can only find the one person who might be able to help her, the only person who might believe that she isn't suffering from the effects of PTSD that everyone else thinks is plaguing her, the one man whose blue eyes she looked into the night he saved her. Yet how could she find him again. She didn't even know his name, just that his team referred to him as L.T. Once a rescue mission is complete, the SEALS are expected not to get involved with anyone who was part of that mission. However when Staci Hayes showed up in a secure facility where he was, looking completely lost and at the end of her rope, he didn't have the heart to tell her that he couldn't get involved any longer. Yet somehow against his better judgment, Lt. Tristan Sawyer did just that. He gave Staci the time to tell him what she knew and how the threat on her life wasn't over. In fact, based on what she took from the prison in Lybania is now a matter of national security and the risks of millions of lives are on the line. If only he could figure out the clues in the hand drawn map that showed the Coronado Naval base and the surrounding area. In the latest novel from Liz Johnson in the Love Inspired Series, Seal Under Siege, takes the reader into not only an action packed suspense story but also weaves a heartwarming romance in between. Yet both Staci and Tristan have secrets that are preventing either of them in getting any more involved that simply working out the threat on San Diego. But when Staci's live is put on the line, Tristan has to admit that he can't always be there to be the one to save her. He has to make a decision, to back away and risk tearing his heart out, or go all in and learn what it means to risk it all in the name of love. I received Seal Under Siege by Liz Johnson compliments of the author herself and received no monetary compensation for a favorable review. Having read A Promise to Protect before which outlines the storyline between Tristan's sister, Ashley Waterstone and her husband Matt, this one cuts right to your heart and has you flipping pages to see how Tristan and Staci will work out their differences before something happens to either one of them. I easily give this one a 5 out of 5 stars and once again this novel has found a forever home on my library shelf.

I didn't know that this was a clean romance with Christian themes before I read it but I saw it on Good Reads and I'm a fan of SEAL Team books. This was one of the bad ones. However compelling the beginning of the story was with our hero SEAL L.T. Tristan Sawyer rescuing aid worker Staci Hayes from a hostage situation in the Middle East, that in no way makes up for the author glossing over that as a member of a SEAL Team they are not trained to arrest someone but kill. What I don't understand is how this was side tracked. I am all for fantasy it is fiction after all but there has to be a good bit of truth for believability. This book read like the author did just enough topical research on Navy SEAL's or she underestimated the reader either way and judging by the positive reception of this book that's sad. Despite this the romance between Tristan and Staci was very nicely done and I truly felt for her in the heartbreaking predicament of not feeling like a whole woman. The ending was just okay once again the authors paint brush got in the way of a great story. I liked the love story and I understood that Staci was trying to keep the faith and live a good life helping others despite her believing that she had no potential for a husband and a family. These aspects of the story made me want to read this book. It fell short of my expectations. Whether an author is writing something clean with a religious message or something more graphic there is no excuse for bad writing.

Both Staci and Tristan are battling demons in their personal lives so they are both reluctant to get emotionally involved with each other. There are some characters from the first in the series, Promise to Protec, that play an important part to the plot of this book. Seal Under Seige is a story about love, faith and forgiveness that tugs at the heartstrings. If you like a good clean, suspenseful story that is easy to read but full of emotion, then this book is for you. I enjoyed reading it and highly recommend it. I received a copy of the book for review from the author and was not monetarily compensated for my review.

Seal Under Siege by Liz Johnson is a fantastic read and one I highly recommend. I'm not usually a suspense reader, but this book had me literally on the edge of my seat wanting to know what was going to happen next. Liz is an incredible writer. I was so wrapped up in the story that when I finished it, I ordered a copy of A Promise to Protect so I could find out about Tristan's sister. This book was provided free for review by the author.

In the last part of the book, Tristan suddenly became depicted as an incredibly religious person, making it seem especially forced. Additionally, much of the dialogue was awkward. (It was grammatically correct, mind you, but it was just unrealistically cheesy and nothing that anyone would ever realistically say aloud.) Character development was equally weak and far too rushed. If you have high expectations when you start reading it, you'll probably find yourself disappointed. Otherwise, it just makes for a typical (albeit forgettable) read.

However, where the novel fell down from 5 to 4 stars (and maybe I'm being unduly harsh due to Harlequin's word count constraints) was in scene/setting. For future novels I'd need a few anchor sentences that makes use of all 5 senses to show the details of the new setting, which would better help me visualize the locale. All in all, great stuff from an author with a long career ahead of her & I dearly hope is given the chance for her own stand-alone series!

The only part I was a bit disappointed in was near the end when Staci stalker corners her in the office. I could see this coming as soon as the suspect was given a name, I just wish it hadn't seemed so easy for him to get to Staci. Overall I did enjoy this book and look forward to reading more from Liz.

    I loved this book it was very well written. Once I got started reading it I couldn't put it down. I loved the characters...and how they interacted with each other. I will be buying several more books by this very talented author and all of this series as they come out. I'm looking forward to reading more of this series. I got it for free on goodreads..for entering in a giveaway.

    Could not put this down once started and I definitely missed out on a little sleep wanting to know what happens next :) Utterly enjoyed this story from start to finish, Staci is such a great character and determined to get the bad guy without endangering anyone else. The SEALS in the book were outstanding, GREAT book!!

    Seal Under Siege Somehow I missed the release of this book, and have already read the others in this series. This author is fantastic and I would say that Men of Valor has been my favorite Love Inspired Suspense series ever. Swoon worthy and yet realistic of the hardships involved. Don't miss this author.
