A Cry For Help
It only takes one phone call and Navy SEAL Drake Avery is rushing back to Tennessee in the middle of the night. His sisters are in danger and he will do whatever it takes to protect them.
A New Twist
Now is not the time for a relationship, but damned if Drake doesn’t cross paths with a smokin’ hot kindergarten teacher named Karen Eastman. Miss Eastman has Drake thinking naughty thoughts when he needs to have his head in the game. He never thought he’d be hot for teacher.
Demons from the Past
Part of the hell of going home is that you know everyone, and they know you. Just when you think you can trust someone, they can turn on a dime. Old and new enemies are thrilled to discover Drake has a beautiful new weakness: Karen. But messing with the women in his life, is a mistake. You mess with the bull, you get the horns.

Her Dominant SEAL is the ninth book in the Midnight Delta series by Caitlyn O’Leary and this is actually the first book I’m reading in the series and by the author. While I really liked the book, this was maybe a little tamer than I’m used to. I don’t really mind that but I think, because the title had the word ‘dominant’, I was a little surprised by it and I kept waiting for it to get spicier. However, I got a really sweet romance with a good dose of suspense that I enjoyed a lot. You also get a lot of the other characters from previous books popping in and see the potential for future books which is something I usually gravitate towards when I read series so I may very well go back and check it out from the beginning.
Drake Avery is very protective towards his sisters and really the whole book revolves around him trying to keep them safe. The romance itself sort of takes a back seat in the book. As a matter of fact, we don’t meet Karen until over 20% into the book which was different for me. The love was more like, she sees how overprotective he is and she finds it hot, especially when she does it to her and they sort of gravitate towards each other and at some point they fell in love with another, have hot sex 90% into the book (the one and only time) and then we get an epilogue. I wanted a little more time as a couple and have the romance build. The suspense was so good though and I really dug the characters. The banter was funny and Drake’s sister Eva was feisty so I really hope to see her have her own book.
4/5 Light Romance, Lots of suspense.
