ARC Review! The Soul of a Seal by Anne Elizabeth

Love may be the toughest battle of all

Captain Bennett Oscar Sheraton
Navy SEAL, the best of the best

Dr. Kimberly Warren
Brilliant engineer, founder of secret space program

When scientists on Dr. Warren’s super-secret space mission start dying, Navy SEAL Captain Sheraton is sent in as an astronaut candidate with a hidden agenda—find the person sabotaging the program.

Kimberly and Bennett’s instant attraction may prove to be a major distraction—or it might be the key to both of their dreams coming true…

West Coast Navy SEALs Series:
A SEAL at Heart (Book 1)
Once a SEAL (Book 2)
A SEAL Forever (Book 3)
The Soul of a SEAL (Book 4)

Praise for Anne Elizabeth:
“Anne Elizabeth writes Navy SEALs from the heart—action-packed, intense and sexy.” —#1 New York Times bestseller Christine Feehan for Once a SEAL
“Sexy romance and super-hot concept.” —RT Book Reviews, 4 Stars for A SEAL Forever 

I am not really sure how to write this review. I liked parts of this book and others I had a tough time relating too as it was very technical.

The space aspect of the book is in the blurb. I was expecting to experience some of this...but the way it was written, I was immersed in to the space portion with so much technical detail that I felt at times I was reading a sci-fi romance novel. Which in and of itself isn't an issue, but it is not really what I was expecting...when I read an FBI Suspense novel, I am not expecting to be immersed in police procedure...but in this case, I was definitely immersed in space technical details.

At times I felt I was in 2 different stories...the romance with Kimberly and Bennett and the sci-fi procedural. And, this for me messed with the pacing of the story and my overall enjoyment of it.

But, this is where it gets difficult. How much of the review needs to be based on the fact that I was unable to engage with it vs. the fact that it was too technical for me, but well-written and I have no reason to think the info the author gave was inaccurate. Hence, the 3.5 stars. It was too technical for me, but it wasn't bad. The science went over my head, but so does algebra, so this is not a surprise.

I guess, I recommend this with the caveat that it does get technical and that you will feel that at least part of the book is leaning to sci-fi.
