Audio: Cowboy Seal Homecoming - Nicole Helm

Alex Maguire never thought he'd go home again. The perfect soldier, the perfect leader, he's spent his whole life running away from Blue Valley, Montana-but when a tragic accident bounces him and two of his men out of the SEALs, there's nowhere left to turn but the ranch he used to call his own . . . and the confusing, innocently beguiling woman who now lives there. Becca Denton's like nothing he could have imagined. She's far too tempting for her own good, but when she offers to help turn the ranch into a haven for injured veterans, he can't exactly say no. He'll just need to keep his distance. But something in her big green eyes makes Alex want to set aside the mantle of the perfect soldier and discover the man he could have been . . . safe and whole within the shelter of her arms.

For review

My thoughts:
At first these two had such a problem that they were step siblings, and before you go all euwwww hear me out. They did NOT grow up together. She came into his dad's life when Alex had gone to the military. He did not even know her last name and they had spoken a few times. I was all you are not related! Why are you guys even finding an issue with this? But hey, maybe that was just an excuse, because these two have issues.

Ok, so Becca does not have issues in that way. She has just been very sheltered by her mum and she has never really done anything. But she loves the ranch and she now owns half of it (Burt! Srsly! What if they had hated each other?! Battles when it comes to that can be so hard.) She is finding her way and I liked how she did that.

Alex, oh man, he has issues. He is the leader. The strong one. The one that tells himself he is ok. Nothing wrong here. Nothing at all. He came out of the war with not a single problem except for that bad knee. Like seeing death and destruction is something that does not affect you. I started to feel more and more for him. 

They meet, they fancy other (and go all wtf?!), she learns how to stand up for herself. He learns how to let go. But it sure is now dance on roses, well if it is all the thorns are there and it hurts a lot. These cowboy seals are not coming home all happy and untroubled.

Conclusion:
I enjoyed it

Narrator Romy Nordlinger
 I liked her voices and they made me smile. She was pleasant listening too and did a good job with narrating this story.

  1. As you already know, I have a rough time with audio reads, but I'm sort of on the fence with this one. I adore Seals and watching them cope after service is always intriguing. Even though they are in no way related, it sounds like it's a focus of they story, so I don't get it. Sorry(lol) Still, give me some cowboy and seal lovin' any day.*heh* Hugs and Happy Wednesday! RO

  5. I don't think this would be a good fit for me, but I'm glad you enjoyed it! I love audiobooks. They make it easier for me to get through books. Plus, by kids can't tear the pages out, lol.

  6. So they aren't blood related? As long as they aren't related then I wouldn't have any problems with it but it sounds like there's a little drama in this read.

    1. Nope. Maybe it was just meant as a hurdle to get over since they had issues a plenty

  7. This book sounds fantastic. It wouldn't be realistic if SEALS come home happy because their day job is rough I am sure.

  8. As long as they are just step siblings. I don't find it weird at all but I guess in real life I would understand how it would be off putting. They are family just not by blood. The synopsis sounds really cute. I can already tell I would like this one.

    1. It's not wrong, but yes, sure it would feel weird to fall for your step siblings even if you did not know him welll

  9. A cowboy + a Seal + veteran troubles it is a recipe I find hard to resist. Going to look for it in Audible.

  10. I don’t really see the issue with step siblings having a relationship especially if they didn’t grow up together. No big deal.

  12. Sounds good. I'm always looking for audios to listen to in the car.

  13. Mhmm makes it better after reading your explanation. But only a little better.

  14. I am trying to decide if I think they are related. I guess not but it would be weird to fall for your step-brother. It is a bit different since they didn't grow up together. I would read it.

    1. It would be weird, even if your parents married after you two had fallen in love (not the case here) but sure, weird

      Delete
  15. Oh, they are step-siblings? I can imagine the drama and complications already! There's nothing inherently wrong if they're not blood related, but I'm guessing they were worried other people will think it looks bad?

  17. Hmmmm... He just looks like an ass on the cover - he's looking beyond her as she's snuggling into him. But I don't care for cowboy romances anyhow! haha

  18. I don't know why but step siblings don't ever bother me in a romance. As long as they aren't blood related. lol

  19. So, are their parents still married? Huh, seems the step thing would make it awkward with their family. Makes for good drama though!
