S. J. Sawyer - Sealed (Sealed, #1)

*Contains adult themes
**Review by Susan

Every girl deserves to find the guy who will make her forget her heart was ever broken... Avery Bishop leaves her comfortable Southern life in Texas behind to get the hell away from the ex-love of her life, Jacks. Moving in with her friend Miranda Jones in Baltimore, she gets more than she bargained for right from the start. No sooner than her feet touch down in Maryland, she is face to face with Miranda's muscled god of a brother, Kreed, a Navy SEAL who is home on a short leave for the holiday. He's sexy and amazing, and she doesn't quite know what to do with her vow to avoid all men..especially when she meets their friend Trevor Rossi and the new professor she is supposed to aid, Dr. James Saunders. Suddenly surrounded by interested men, the only thing she knows for sure is that life will never be the same. Kreed is sucked into meeting his sister's friend at the airport, but he didn't expect to be greeted by the sexy angel that walks out of Thurgood Marshall. He's instantly attracted to her, and despite the fact that he only has a few weeks to spend in Maryland, he's determined to get to know her. It's too bad for him that his best friend Trevor is equally as interested. Suddenly, the competition is on, and Avery is the prize. The following story contains mature themes, strong language, and sexual situations. It is intended for an adult audience and is not suitable for young readers. 




So the story of Avery is one I've heard before. A girl running from her last, having moved from Texas to be with friends in Baltimore. With their guidance and support she would find peace with what she had lost back home. But under no circumstances did she want another relationship... But would that be the case? After meeting a few guys, the new girl on the block turned heads and the guys fell head over heels for her. Kreed got her attention and kept it. Despite a few other guys being on the scene their attraction was clear. I was banging my head a few times wishing they would get together. I can't say I disliked the book because I didn't...it was an enjoyable read but the first 65% seemed long and it took me a while to start to feel the characters. But I did. And the last part of the story and how they finally start to accept what everyone else could see, despite their circumstances got me a little frustrated but there was a definite turning point in the story where I can say I enjoyed it. An easy and enjoyable read but pleased I hung in to get the rest of the story. Can't wait to read the next book 'Teased' and see where the rest goes. There are a couple of characters I still have question marks with so hope to learn more in the next part of the story. 3.5 star rating for SJ Sawyers 'Sealed'.
