SEAL'S PROMISE                                        SHARON HAMILTON

Special Operator T.J. Talbot had watched from afar as his best friend married the love of his life. Raised in and out of the foster care system and nearly ruining his chance to become a SEAL, he figured his Happily Ever After would never be. But Dr. Death plays a heartbreaking trick on him and he winds up being the man’s father confessor, where he makes a promise to the dying SEAL to look after his friend’s wife and baby.

Back in the states, Shannon Moore is grateful for the baby she is carrying, though she is a constant reminder of the man who no longer lives at her side. She is not ready for the attention from the community she receives, especially from T.J. She’s decided to honor her fallen husband by giving her whole life to the child he left behind.

Recovering from his wounds, Talbot is plagued by the depth of the wounds he still carries inside him, as he tries to perform a mission he wishes he was not given. Rebuffed at every turn, he struggles but understands his promise might not be able to be fulfilled. He does not want to take what was never given to him in the first place.

But what starts out as an improbable love story begins to bloom and grow. When Shannon and the child are endangered, he will not quit fighting for the family he now knows he was meant to love forever.

This story begins with a wedding where the bride is upset with the best man because the man she is marrying has a hangover and needs to be held up. She is upset with him but at the same time a little bit attracted to him by the way he lives his life. T.J. her husband’s best and a Navy Seal team mate are sent on a mission soon after the wedding and during the mission he is shot and as T.J. is with him he asks to promise to take care of Shannon his wife and their child who is not born yet if he should pass away. He does pass away and T.J. is full of remorse because he has no one in his life and felt he should have been the one who should have died. When he finally gets the courage to go to her house he decides that the baby needs a play house though the baby is not born yet. But he pushes on and with the help of his friend’s father they get it done. He slowly starts showing up at the house every day and eventually they become more than friends and he tells her of the promise he made to his friend and her husband. He being raised in foster care and not having a family he at times gets frustrated with things but she starts to notice how he works through these problems and overcomes them and he is willing to take chances something her husband was not so much willing to do. They begin to rely on each other when her mother shows up and she ends up moving up north. He now must decide if she is worth the fight for a life of a family that he never had or stay the same by himself. This is a good story full of emotion and the characters are full of depth. I got this book from net galley.  I give this 5 stars.
