 Inevitable Love (Navy Love Series #1) 
by JC Santo
 

SYNOPSIS

Sometimes the things we fight hardest against are inevitable in the end.

Hunter Stevenson wasn't interested in wasting nights with bed warmers, he had a daughter to take care of and a life to build. Leaving behind the mother of his four year old child and her incessant partying, Hunter moves closer to his family to help provide Sawyer some stability.

Tessa Daniels didn’t share the ‘typical American dream’ like most girls. A husband, 2.5 kids and a white picket fence weren’t the things she wanted for herself. She had a plan laid out, which included a career in the Navy and being surrounded by her best friends. She was perfectly content with her carefree, fun lifestyle and her casual relationships, but all of that changed when she met him.

What neither of them expected was a nosy brother and best friend with some serious matchmaking skills. The two have an instantaneous pull towards one another, they can’t fight the spark even though they both do. Until one drunken night, Tessa throws herself at Hunter, only to face an agonizing rejection. However, Hunter’s gentlemanly facade doesn’t last with the sassy sailor girl, his alpha attitude quickly emerges in the midst of their sexual tensions.

Hunter refuses to be another one of Tessa’s casual hook-ups, and won’t allow her to run away from the idea of ‘them’. No matter how many obstacles stand in their way of a happily ever after. Now he must convince Tessa that their inevitable love is worth fighting for.

Can their newfound love survive the stress of an impending deployment and Hunter's past pushing it's way back into his life?


**This book can be read as a standalone.

MY REVIEW

I really enjoyed the typical gender swap this book had. The woman, Tessa, being the one that was in the military and obsessed with her career and climbing up the ladder was a nice spin. I always find it refreshing to see a woman with some drive and ambition.

I’m giving it 4 stars just because I wish it had a bit more…. Something. Conflict or a struggle. It just seemed too good. I know, I’m horrible!! This is a great read and Santo’s really send you on a nice paced story.  I try really hard not to give a rewritten synopsis for people who read the review.

I thought Hunter was such a great guy/dad. I mean, how could Tessa walk away? Everything about this book was just so fun. The relationships, friendships, sparks flying… everything was just done so nicely that it made this book such a fun and quick read. I’d recommend it to anyone who enjoys romance. 

I received an ARC of this book with the hope that I will leave an Unbiased Opinion. I was not required to leave a review, positive or otherwise, and my opinions are just that... my opinions.






Love Unexpected (Navy Love Series #2) 
by JC Santo



 
SYNOPSIS

Sometimes the unexpected things in life turn out to be the most worthwhile.

Tegan Daniels is a twenty-one year old college student and a hopeless romantic. She knows her prince charming will eventually find her one day. Someone must be playing a warped joke on her when he comes into her life; Her perfect man with one huge character flaw---he despises love.

Charles Reed has never been a commitment type of man, except when it comes to his loyalty to the U.S. Navy. When a close friend’s sister moves to town he starts doubting his phobia of relationships. What he doesn't expect is for her innocence to make him question everything in his life and from his past.

He never anticipated a girl like her would come into his life. She never thought she’d have to convince her dream man to give them a shot.

Sometimes the things we want most, require the most fighting for. Love is something unwanted by him and something desired by her; neither expects to fall for the other.

Will this unexpected love end in their happily ever after?

MY REVIEW

Over all, this book was way more than I hoped for. It had all the feels I enjoyed having during reading a romance book. I am sitting rather impatiently waiting on the next in the series!! This book is highly recommended for anyone that loves a good love story where the man has to work to prove himself and the woman is worthy of that love.
5 solid gold stars!

Love Unexpected might be my favorite of the three books. I just adored this book. It had everything a romance book needs… a fantastic love story. I was looking forward to Tegan and Reed’s story. But I loved, LOVED, hearing updates on Hunter and Tessa. It’s one of my favorite things about series; we get more of previous couples. Santo is wonderful at fitting her various characters in to start to loving/hating them. You start to develop a relationship with them and I find I get more attached to books that do this.

I thought Reed was a great guy. Once he knew what he wanted, he went after it, and man, Tegan didn’t stand a chance! But she didn’t just lie down and give in. She was a great love interest for him; she made him work for it. I was completely tickled with this story!!

I received an ARC of this book with the hope that I will leave an Unbiased Opinion. I was not required to leave a review, positive or otherwise, and my opinions are just that... my opinions.


 




Resilient Love (Navy Love Series #3) 
by JC Santo

 
SYNOPSIS

How much hurt can one love go through?

An ill mother, a devastating secret and depression. These are now daily battles Joanna Fuentes deals with.

She sat on the sidelines and watched her friends find love, even the ones who weren’t searching for it. J.C. was meant to be a distraction from her mother’s illness, something for fun to pass the time. She never expected him to be her happily ever after.

Jared Collins enjoyed the single life. Yes, he’d always had the hots for a fellow sailor and friend, Jo, but he never thought he’d act on those physical feelings. And he damn sure didn’t think she’d be a game changer when he finally gave into those feelings.

What started off as two friends and a couple drunken nights, escalated into something more; Love. But secrets, unspoken feelings and one huge fight has caused a riff in the once unbreakable friendship of J.C. and Jo.

Will J.C. be able to repair the damage not only to their friendship but also their future relationship? Is he able to be the man Jo needs to pull her out of the depths of despair she’s fallen into?

One thing is certain; it will take a resilient kind of love.

MY REVIEW

Book 2 was total swoon-worthy… but this book is the tear-jerker. This is the one that pulls at your heart strings and gets deep!! There should be a warning on this book that you will need a box of tissues!!

JC and Jo had such great chemistry and love. They seemed to have this pull to each other but went through a rollercoaster of times. Too many ups and downs. These group of people is so fantastically written about. You can’t help but feel like you’re a part of their group, you know? You will get sucked right in! Plus if you’ve read the other two books you’ve gotten to know these characters and feel for them. I love book 3. Everything flows so nicely and this is just a great book!!!

I received an ARC of this book with the hope that I will leave an Unbiased Opinion. I was not required to leave a review, positive or otherwise, and my opinions are just that... my opinions.
