BLOG TOUR w/ GIVEAWAY: Spotlight by Traci Hunter Abramson


ABOUT THE BOOK

Navy SEAL Craig Simmons has pledged his life to serve and protect, so when this newest member of the Saint Squad observes a stunning young woman on the beach being shadowed by an armed man, he leaps into action. It doesn’t take long to realize his mistake, but it also puts him in a position to meet a very well-known actress, Sienna Blake. For Sienna, the timing couldn’t be more perfect—she’s preparing for a role as a CIA agent, and who better to help her prepare than a Navy SEAL? Craig and Sienna develop a lighthearted friendship, though both are aware of their growing attraction. Neither realizes, however, that a treacherous enemy is setting in motion a terrifying plan to destroy Sienna . . .

A series of near-fatal accidents on set are too close for comfort, and Sienna has been lucky to escape with her life—so far. Despite the rising danger behind the scenes, the show must go on. When the Saint Squad is enlisted by the FBI to safeguard Sienna on the ill-fated film set, Craig is driven to protect the woman he is quickly growing to love. As the list of suspects and motives grows, Craig and the Saint Squad will do whatever it takes to track down the perpetrator—before things turn deadly.

REVIEW

This is the first book by Abramson that I have read. And I have to say that I quite enjoyed it and definitely plan to read more books by her, especially in the Saints Squad series.  The fact that I have a weakness for main characters that are military men doesn't hurt any. ;)  I enjoyed meeting Craig who is a Navy SEAL but isn't so tough that he shuts out emotion.  It helps that the squad he works with is mostly LDS (Mormon).  As a newbie he still has a lot to learn, but things change quite a bit when he inadvertently runs into a famous young actress named Sienna Blake.  Sienna is in the area to start filming an action movie and runs into Craig on the beach when Craig tackles her bodyguard thinking he's following her.  Things pick up a bit when Craig's unit steps in to help with security at Sienna's sister's wedding reception.  As Craig and Sienna's relation continues to develop despite Craig's unit leaving for a mission, both struggle with how to adapt to the other's very different lifestyle.  But when it becomes apparent that someone is trying to hurt Sienna, Craig steps up his efforts to protect her with compromising his own identity.  The romance between Sienna and Craig was a sweet one and developed relatively naturally (as naturally as a relationship between a movie star and a Navy SEAL can develop).  The details of the mission Craig goes on is interesting and a bit nerve racking as Craig deals with the aftermath.  And Sienna's ongoing struggles with publicity and privacy also add depth to the story.
