5 Stars Out Of 5
A great read! Full of danger & attraction.

Seal Under Siege is an amazing book! It begins with a tense rescue operation and never lets up. There is action and danger all through the book, with healthy doses of attraction between the two main characters.
And, oh man, is there attraction between these characters! But, one of the best things about this book is that fact that BOTH of the characters have big issues in their past that make them feel that they are unworthy of being in a relationship, especially one that could end in marriage.
The author did such a good job of getting my emotions all roiled up! I felt so sad for Staci and all that she thought she could never have. She is such a strong woman, who has endured much more physically and emotionally than most. And she keeps persevering, even when things get pretty hard for her in the book.
Tristan is also such a well-written character. He is just the kind of hero that those of us who like romance novels look for. He is strong and smart, but also sensitive. He, however, can't seem to let go of the past and the guilt he feels for it. Holding onto that guilt keeps him from connecting and loving again.
This book is the second in a series, but is definitely able to stand alone. I am now planning on getting myself a copy of the first book in this series! I want to read Matt and Ashley's story for myself. I highly recommend this book. (5 stars)
Staci Hayes, just rescued from a Middle Eastern prison by a team of Navy SEALS, thinks she's safe when she is back home on American soil. She has information of a potential terrorist attack and can't convince any government offices to take the threat seriously. Her only hope lies with one of her rescuers.
Tristan Sawyer is dedicated to his job as a Navy SEAL. When Staci shows up at his office to convince him to look into the threat, he's torn between keeping professional distance as required by his job and also protecting Staci.
Seal Under Siege by Liz Johnson is a fantastic read and one I highly recommend. I'm not usually a suspense reader, but this book had me literally on the edge of my seat wanting to know what was going to happen next. Liz is an incredible writer. I was so wrapped up in the story that when I finished it, I ordered a copy of A Promise to Protect so I could find out about Tristan's sister.
This book was provided free for review by the author.
Staci Hayes knew that once the Navy SEALS rescued her from Lybania the threat on her life didn't end there. Now if she can only find the one person who might be able to help her, the only person who might believe that she isn't suffering from the effects of PTSD that everyone else thinks is plaguing her, the one man whose blue eyes she looked into the night he saved her. Yet how could she find him again. She didn't even know his name, just that his team referred to him as L.T.
Once a rescue mission is complete, the SEALS are expected not to get involved with anyone who was part of that mission. However when Staci Hayes showed up in a secure facility where he was, looking completely lost and at the end of her rope, he didn't have the heart to tell her that he couldn't get involved any longer. Yet somehow against his better judgment, Lt. Tristan Sawyer did just that. He gave Staci the time to tell him what she knew and how the threat on her life wasn't over. In fact, based on what she took from the prison in Lybania is now a matter of national security and the risks of millions of lives are on the line. If only he could figure out the clues in the hand drawn map that showed the Coronado Naval base and the surrounding area.
In the latest novel from Liz Johnson in the Love Inspired Series, Seal Under Siege, takes the reader into not only an action packed suspense story but also weaves a heartwarming romance in between. Yet both Staci and Tristan have secrets that are preventing either of them in getting any more involved that simply working out the threat on San Diego. But when Staci's live is put on the line, Tristan has to admit that he can't always be there to be the one to save her. He has to make a decision, to back away and risk tearing his heart out, or go all in and learn what it means to risk it all in the name of love.
I received Seal Under Siege by Liz Johnson compliments of the author herself and received no monetary compensation for a favorable review. Having read A Promise to Protect before which outlines the storyline between Tristan's sister, Ashley Waterstone and her husband Matt, this one cuts right to your heart and has you flipping pages to see how Tristan and Staci will work out their differences before something happens to either one of them. I easily give this one a 5 out of 5 stars and once again this novel has found a forever home on my library shelf.
