    Short and sweet second chance story. Lucas was a jerk (for her own good of course!). I liked that she did not give in right away. A lot of action and suspense. Good story. Loads of tension. I liked the resolution. Actually it is probably the only thing I would have been happy with. Of course I LOVED Cuddles the dog!There is no mention of OW/OM during their 3 month separation but I did not feel there were any.

    Super entertaining read from Emma, our broken hearted h, to our alpha Lucas who is so protective and charming. Lucas doesn't use charm with a silver tongue but through thoughtful actions. He believed Emma would be better off without him so he disappears for 3 months. Then he gets the call that brings him and Emma back together again. Emma is my kind of girl. She needs protection and heads to the pound what she leaves with is not only hysterical but heart warming. I just lost it when she not only gets everything opposite of what she needed but than she tags it cuddles. Lucas with his subtle smart comments about not only the dog but it's name had me laughing. The action was also good. If I had one complaint it is that it is the confusion trying to figure out which book was actually the first book. There are two in this series that are marked book 1. Interested in seeing some of the rest of the team. This was a short book so I'm sure the others that are full length have a lot to offer. Enjoy

    I have been spoiled by Suzanne Brockmann and I have a high standard for SEAL stories. Next time, I'll just reread one of her stories.

    3.5 stars - After an erotic, sex-filled weekend together that promised to develop into something more, Lucas decides to take a step back from Emma. She's too tempting, too delicious, too deserving of a better life than he can give her as a SEAL. The temptation to call her is removed when his team is deployed. Emma felt certain she would hear from the hot, gorgeous Lucas after spending a weekend in his king-sized bed. But her phone didn't ring, and her calls were not returned. To add injury to insult, the new home she purchased on impulse isn't all it was advertised to be. And now, someone has broken in and ransacked it, destroying everything in the process. Nothing was stolen so what were they looking for? A friend of Lucas's is the investigating cop and when he suspects Emma's life is in danger, he calls Lucas who is now back in town. Sparks fly when Lucas rides in to save Emma and thus the fun begins.Sexy banter, laugh out loud moments - a toothless dog rescued from the pound as a guard dog - car chases, suspense, romance - it all adds up to a fun-filled yet romantic read with a couple who must come face-to-face with the reality of losing it all before they wake up and smell the coffee. Short on pages, but another Must Read!

    Not a bad read, though brief and sadly, much less connected to the 'Red Hot Seals' world than I thought. If I liked the paranormal element in this universe, the novellas here don't contain any of that and are more like short, bite-sized pieces of romantic suspense/contemporary romance reads intended for a quick wrap-up and an undisputed HEA. I did like the setup of both Lucas and Emma's backstory and the suspense was a lot easier to take in than the first novella which I felt ended too abruptly. What left me intrigued though, was the number of characters in SEAL team 7 (and even Rio) who do have the potential to have their own stories told. There are however, some continuity errors for instance (Dante Addario's eye colour seems to change throughout the book) and some editing/grammar/spelling faults that seem to have been overlooked in the publication process. Normally I could ignore these, but some really stuck out like sore thumbs which in some (petty) way, affected my reading.

    *I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review*Three nights of passion. Two hearts falling. One too scared to follow through. Three months later Lucas finds himself unable to walk away from her again. Emma needs his help whether she'll admit it or not and he's giving it regardless.Lucas is a SEAL, his life is hard, deployments are sometimes long, and he would never put someone he loved through waiting around and wondering what ifs. So he walked away from Emma and convinced himself every day he'd done the right thing. That is until he finds out Emma is in danger then he becomes hell-bent on protecting her.A ransacked house, an unfeeling detective, a dog with her life on the line, an attempted kidnapping and all this because of something Emma knew nothing about. The one thing she did know was that she wasn't safe, but letting Lucas help her was like stepping in front of the firing range. She'd loved him and he'd disappeared without so much as a phone call. And not even that heartbreak could convince her body that she no longer loved him.The sexual tension is beyond thick and when it finally breaks it's like a dam cracked and its water is suddenly feeding the desert. The action and suspense had my eyes glued to the pages; definitely never a dull moment.Bound by Temptation is a non-stop suspenseful rush. Who's after Emma? What do they want? What the hell just happened? And I can't forget the...can y'all please just freaking kiss already!?!?

Bound By Temptation is a 175 page novella (estimated) set in my Red-Hot SEALs world.What did I like? This was a quick read that read like a full-length novel. Detailed and developed with a cast of the most interesting characters. Of course, it is 100% an adult content read but done with finesse. I enjoyed the mystery and intrigue that kept me guessing all the way through and absolutely loved the ending…. Whoa so funny!What will you like? Hunky guys that will make you drool and tender sex that will reach all the way down to the toes. A very developed storyline that is intriguing and enthralling. The descriptions and details are on the spot for the area and the background. The exciting action will keep you engrossed with every page turning faster than lighting. All with a delightful ending. Look forward too many more books from this author. I received this from the author for an honest review with no compensation.

    This is one of the novellas in the series about SEALS. It is Emma and Lucas Trammel’s story. Same concept overall as the others. In this book, Emma and Lucas had a steamy weekend months before and he blew her off. When Emma’s home is burglarized, Lucas finds out and wants to help but Emma is still upset about the blow off. Overall good book, but if the author referred to ibuprofen as a pain killer one more time I was going to have to harm myself or others and need a real pain killer. I get that ibuprofen and Tylenol are technically pain killers, but just say otc med or ibuprofen. It’s not like she was taking oxycodone. Just got annoying.

    Lucas is a US Navy SEAL who thinks that relationships don't work in the environment of the Teams. Emma is his former neighbor and one-time lover that gets into trouble. The situation is volatile by any stretch of the imagination.This was a great, fun, fairly quick read with lots of heat and fireworks. The characters are well defined, their backstory is absolutely believable and the heat between them is palpable. They are both stubborn and protective of the other person, but especially protective of their own feelings. I especially loved Cuddles, fierceness personified. This was a great story and I'm definitely reading more from this author.

    Emma is trying to forget the weekend she spent with Lucas when somebody broke into her house destroying all her furniture and belongings.Lucas is trying to forget Emma but when a former friend of him informs him that Emma is in trouble, he feels the need to protect her.Twists and action make the book impossible to be put aside. The best part is little toothless Cuddles. I love her.I voluntarily reviewed an advance copy of this book.

    I read this book as part of the Hunks To the Rescue Bundle. This is the first book I've read by this author. I enjoyed the book, the characters (including Cuddles the rescued dog), and the plot. This is a romantic suspense novel but it also had some funny parts as well. I will be reading other books by this author.

    Bound by Temptation by Trish McCallanHave not read other works by the author but the story sounded interesting.Emma Janssen works at the hospital and is obsessed with Lucas Trammel, the time they spent several days together.Lots of hot steamy sex scenes. She finds the hanging flowers a real chore, spending too much time just watering them.She finds the house has been ransacked and she has no idea why or by who as nothing was taken.Story also follows Lucas and he's on call for when his team is needed...his friend calls and tells him of her problems and he recalls their time together, intimately...Alternating chapters where Emma gets a dog and wants a gun also to protect herself. Lucas wants to train her how to defend herself and show her how to use a gun but he won't intrude on her life.Somebody tried to kidnap her as gun fire started and he tries to protect her... they are highly sexually charged for each other.What I like about this book is the masculine side and the female side and how they are reluctant to get back together. Also all the action and adventure in the mystery of who is after her...just when you think the mystery is solved events occur and they start up again.Like how the dog also plays a major role in solving the case. Liked the characters and this is the first out of this series I've read and I didn't find lost because of previous things in earlier books in the series.Enjoyed this one so much I can't wait to read the others. Excerpt from Spirit Woods is included.

    The story of Emma and Lucas, a couple that get a second chance when Emma unexpectedly needs protection that Lucas is more than willing to provide.Lucas has kept his real job a secret for a good reason, and hoping to save her from future worry and heartbreak, ironically ended up breaking her heart.Emma has no idea why Lucas suddenly disappeared and would not return her calls, but has attempted to move on with her life and forget him, mostly unsuccessfully.She doesn't expect to see him again, but finds him at her front door the day after her house was ransacked. She's not happy about the reunion, still upset with him for his abandonment, yet (view spoiler)[comes to be grateful for his presence when he ends up saving her from nearly being kidnapped. It becomes clear that the danger isn't over and she sees that she has no choice but to accept his protection (hide spoiler)].The two end up spending time together and the truth comes out, inevitably leading to old feelings resurfacing and old decisions being re-examined.Short and sweet, with a satisfying happily ever after.Previous book reviews:✦ Bound by Seduction (Red-Hot SEALs, #2.5)✦ Forged In Ash (Red-Hot SEALs #2)✦ Forged in Fire (Red-Hot SEALs #1)

    BoundI typically enjoy Trish McCallen's books and this one is no exception. Emma Jannsen is getting on with her life after her long time neighbor and more recent weekend fling disappeared on her. She has moved on, however, into a Craftsman bungalow that is slowly draining her dry. But she is determined she won't further embarrass herself when it comes to her former neighbor. Lucas Trammel is a member of SEAL Team 7. After his weekend with his neighbor, Emma, he went wheels up. Which short circuited his spiral into more. More of everything Emma. Because he has seen what happens with relationships and team members. And he wants better for Emma. Then he gets the call from a former team member, now San Diego PD. His former neighbor is in trouble. This is a. Great KU library read.

    This is the first story I've read from McCallan and I was pleasantly surprised! Emma and Lucas have chemistry and while it would have been nice to see a little more relationship development-challenging being set in a novella..I was still satisfied with the end results. I admit I'm curious about the series itself, however, I have to say (and no offense to the sexy SEAL team guarding Emma)-my favorite character was the dog Cuddles! With no teeth and other health issues, she appeared incapable of protecting herself much less anyone else yet her takedown method of the villain was my absolute favorite part of the entire story!Overall, I thought this was a decently paced novella full of action, suspense, and humor. I will be checking out the other books in the series.

    There is a lot of Temptation with Emma and LucasAfter becoming lovers before Lucas' last deployment and ignoring Emma's calls, he's abruptly back into her life because her house is burglarized. Since ex-SEAL Rio is now a detective and is assigned to her case, he calls Lucas for assistance as he remembers that they used to be together. But it's going to take the entire SEAL Team 7 to make sure that Emma stay a safe. It will be a race in time to find whatever the thieves are after.I wish the book was longer but the storyline was good and I'd give Bound By Temptations a solid 4 stars.

    I received a free copy of Bound by Temptation from the author via her newsletter. I've never read any of her books and must have been subscribed to her newsletter via a competition entry. Before downloading it, I read the reviews on Amazon.com and sampled the first chapter. I was quickly pulled into the fast paced story and boy am I glad I downloaded it. I loved how Luke took charge when Emma was threatened and how he looked after her. I fell for both him and Cuddles, her insulin dependent, toothless terrier guard dog, in a big way. Highly recommended.

    I received this book free from the author to read and leave an honest review. Lucas had broken up with Emma months ago and she didn't know why. Now, someone has broken into her home and she does not why that happened either. And she doesn't know why Lucas is there. She doesn't want, or need, him there, nor does she want, or need, his protection! There's a lot of romantic suspense to this story, and it was easy to read without stopping because it was a good story. This was well-written, suspenseful, romantic and sexy all in one. I enjoyed this book and recommend it to anyone.

    Action packed!Trish McCallan has written a storyline full of romantic suspense, featuring a gutsy heroine who is in big trouble, reuniting her with the man who dropped her after a short weekend of explosive sexual chemistry. Now he, and a slew of sexy SEALs come to her aid when her home is ransacked and her possessions destroyed. There's plenty of danger and intrigue that I have loved in each of the four books I have read by this author because her storytelling is every bit as good as Sharon Hamilton and Lynn Raye Harris.

    To love or not to love, a hard question Great book. I bet it's hard on the SEALS just as this book shows. Lucas and Emma's story show the challenges, heartache and danger life with a SEAL can be, but if the love and trust us there, then it's not only wonderful but gratifying. Excellent story, great characters and a real to life story makes it even better Great job Suzanne and thank you.

    Another good oneThis author never disappoints. She always provides an interesting story with intriguing characters and storylines. The lead is a hot alpha male who defends our country and loves his woman with everything he has (just as soon as he admits it). This is really a good read that kept my interest. There is just the right about of sexy scenes/dreams interspersed without overtaking the plot. A good read.

    I loved this story! There were enough sparks between Lucas and Emma to start a bond fire! If you like macho men who also have a softer side and women who are feisty and know their own minds this is the read for you! This is the first book I've read by T. McClellan but it certainly won't be the last!

    It's a novella and there are no cliffhangers. It has some of the cast from the Red-Hot SEALs series mentioned in this story but just in passing. Lucas and Tag are in ST7, but are in Echo platoon. This is a nice story about how Lucas gets his woman.
