Navy SEAL Reid Galvin is back from hell and eager to find comfort in Becca Anderson’s arms. He knows he hurt her when he cut contact during his deployment, so when his call interrupts her date with another man, he has only himself to blame. But he can’t forget what she means to him–or the sexy email she sent him–and he won’t miss this chance to claim her as his own.
It’s been weeks since Becca heard from the man she thought she was involved with. So when Reid wants to take up where they left off as if nothing happened, she refuses. Then he rescues her from a first date gone very wrong, and she realizes she’s not quite ready to let him go.
Reid and Becca have a lot to talk about, but since she’s not listening, he’s going to have to regain her trust another way–by bringing her most erotic fantasies to life. Making her surrender to pleasure just might be his most important mission.

Following a difficult rescue mission in Afghanistan, Reid Galvin withdraws from his non-military friends and family, cutting off all communication with his loved ones, including his girlfriend of several months, Becca Anderson. When he returns stateside, Reid plans to meet with Becca face to face to explain why he pulled away from her but much to his surprise, Becca is not patiently waiting for his homecoming. Becca has misconstrued his silence as his way of breaking things off with her and she has decided to begin dating other men.
Becca and Reid are terrific protagonists. Reid is an intense alpha male and extremely protective of the woman he cares about. Becca is a little insecure, but she is also strong and independent. Lack of communication and trust issues threaten to derail their relationship but their strong attraction to one another proves irresistible.
The sex scenes between Becca and Reid are highly detailed and quite erotic. Each encounter is quite lengthy and spans several pages. A very nice combination of sweet yet slightly kinky sex.

Overall, Covert Seduction is a fast-paced and entertaining romance with delightfully engaging protagonists. If you enjoy books that have a little bit of a mystery along with a whole lot of steamy lovin’, then you will love this quick read.
