It’s a good thing Gabe Bristow lives and breathes the Navy SEAL credo, “the only easy day was yesterday,” because today, his life is unrecognizable. When his prestigious career comes to a crashing halt, he’s left with a bum leg and few prospects for employment that don’t include a desk.

That is, until he’s offered the chance to command a private hostage rescue team and free a wealthy American businessman from Colombian paramilitary rebels. It seems like a good deal—until he meets his new team: a drunk Cajun linguist, a boy-genius CIA threat analyst, an FBI negotiator with mob ties, a cowboy medic, and an EOD expert as volatile as the bombs he defuses. Oh, and who could forget the sexy, frustratingly impulsive Audrey Van Amee? She’s determined to help rescue her brother—or drive Gabe crazy. Whichever comes first.

As the death toll rises, Gabe’s team of delinquents must figure out how to work together long enough to save the day. Or, at least, not get themselves killed. Because Gabe’s finally found something worth living for, and God help him if he can’t bring her brother back alive.

My Rant:
I completely slept on this book. I don’t normally pick up books like this because I love immortal heroes and sometime I feel like no one could compare but this book has completely changed my perception and I can now claim that I love the human heros just as much as the immortal ones. (just don’t expect me to give up my lust for fangs). 
The cover is wickedly hot with a capital H and the merc’s in the book are hotter!!!! Once the book began there was a rush of action. The plot begins to take off; I fell deeply into the story quickly and found that I was dangerously attached to the characters.  I loved them all. Gabe was all alpha and some, yes he had his issues but he was born to lead in the bedroom and his quest to help save Aubrey’s brother. But what was interesting to see that Gabe was not the only alpha male in the picture. No worries, because I have enough room in my heart to have them all. Lol, Aubrey was amazing, strong willed, witty, determined and contained the courage that is not normally seen in a heroine. Aubrey was hilarious, she seemed to give Gabe a good challenge from time to time which made it hard to tell whom had control over whom when Gabe and Aubrey both were commandeering the scene. The romance well, the romance was so hot, blazing hot that I lost all train of thought. Hehehe…. know you all know what I mean about that. I completely loved Tina Burrows writing style, the plot was riveting and the characters were dangerously loveable.

My Recommendation

I really, really loved this book and I am rating Seal of Honor 5 out of 5 Purple Rant Hearts and would recommend this book to anyone that loves a contemporary romance with non stop action and wickedly hot Mercenaries.

 Author Information
Tonya Burrows  Writing has always been my one true love. I wrote my first novel-length story in 8th grade and haven't stopped since. I received a B.A. in creative writing from SUNY Oswego and I'm now working on a MFA in popular fiction at Seton Hill University.

When I'm not writing, I spend my time reading, painting (badly), exploring new places, and enjoying time with my family. Give me a good horror movie over a chick flick any day. (And, let's be honest, I'll take a bad horror movie too!) I'm a geek at heart and pledge my avid TV fandom to Supernatural and Doctor Who. I'm also a big fan of The Voice. What can I say? Guilty pleasure.

I share my life with two dogs and a ginormous cat. We live in a small town in PA, but I suffer from a bad case of wanderlust and usually end up moving someplace new every few years. Luckily, my animals are all excellent travel buddies.
