SEALed With Love
It isn't Sage Parker's fault that she mistakes former Navy SEAL Joel Watts as the stalker who had been sending her disturbing letters--he shows up every time she turns around. Too bad her father doesn’t tell her he sent Joel to protect her. When the stalker tracks Sage from LA to her new job in Colorado, she's glad to have Joel on her side. She didn’t plan to falling in love with him though—now if he would see her as more than just a client.
Joel takes his job as head of resort security seriously, but Sage is his number one priority, and the one woman he can’t get out of his mind. He isn't sure if he believes in her precognition, or some of her other hokey beliefs, but he soon finds he can't live without her. He just has to catch the stalker before he or Sage end up dead.
My Review: 5 Stars
SEALed With Love may be just a little bit better than A Perfect Fit in my opinion.
Book 2 in the DiCarlo Brides series follows Sage Parker and Joel Watts. I loved their story!
Sage has a sixth sense... a precognition that no one believes in. But little things that she either sees or feels always ends up happening. Sage also has a creepy stalker. Her father, the late George DiCarlo, hired Joel to be her personal body guard. Joel is a retired Navy SEAL and his top priority is keeping Sage safe. Joel is also the one that George chose for Sage to marry.
Sage is pretty convinced that Joel only sees her as a "job". She doesn't think that someone like him would ever want to be with someone like her. She thinks that she is plain and weak. Joel sees her as a beautiful, strong, feisty woman who is willing to do anything and everything to make sure the people she cares about are happy and safe.
I do have to say... Joel is a stubborn man! Somewhere along the way he falls in love with Sage but thinks that he is not good enough for her. He was dealt a tough hand growing up and never experienced love. He thinks that as soon as Sage finds out about his past that she'll run far away from him. What he doesn't realize is that Sage loves him for the man that he is... not his past. She sees the real man inside... the strong, amazing, caring man who would do anything and everything to keep her happy and safe.
I loved these two together! They strengthened and brought out the best in each other! I wish their story was just a little bit longer! But I am looking forward to seeing more of them in the rest of the series!
I had the mystery of who the bad guy was figured out pretty early on. But just like in the 1st book of this series, it didn't bother me. I was too busy enjoying the love story between Sage and Joel!
I can't wait to read the rest of the sisters' stories! I am still looking forward to Rosemary's story the most. Her and Harrison are going to be very entertaining... I just know it! ;)
