A Billionaire SEAL Romance

Genres ~ Contemporary Romance, Military
Navy SEAL Sullivan "Van" Tate has been called home to reluctantly inherit an empire and finds himself facing the most difficult mission of all: love.
Nothing about Sullivan "Van" Tate is what it seems. A Navy SEAL raised among the New York City elite, Van prefers heart-pounding action over a Wall Street corner office. But when his adoptive father dies and his business rivals move in to overtake his empire, Van must suit up to save the company and protect the one woman most forbidden to him…and the object of Van's most dangerous desires.
Chloe Tate is as ambitious as she is gorgeous. With a newfound independence, Chloe is no longer a prisoner on her father’s ranch. But everything changes when losing her father may also mean losing her life. Even with her survival on the line, Chloe can’t deny the burning attraction she feels the moment she locks eyes with Van, her rich, rough and ready, foster brother and the new head of her father’s company. Tall, dark, and muscled, he's the one man who she has no business being with. But how can she resist a Navy Seal Warrior when he’ll do anything to protect her?
This entertaining read is filled with tension and intrigue as well as many secrets. The men are military and very tough cored.... an interesting combination for the woman who love their alpha's as such!
Three Tate brothers are Van the oldest and heir, Lucas who has my complete attention and Wolf the youngest brother. In this book, we get Van's story and a secret letter is given to him on the event of their foster dad, Noah's death. Also in this story is a younger sister, Chloe, Noah's daughter.
Secrets are so bad, they destroy people and break apart families. Further in this book the reader will see how all the lies and falsehoods can become very complicated.
The author does an interesting job of building the story and leaving room for the next books of this series. She introduces some back history of this family and events in Van's past that make him the hardened man he is today. Also, she leaves little nibbles of what is going on in Lucas and Wolf's current life. Of course, these little nibbles only make me crazy with wonder on what the heck Lucas was up to.
I admired Chloe and how she taught herself to be a survivor. Living without love and the touch of others is a horrible existence. Her character is heart breaking and rewarding to read and I felt the author presented her in a believable manner combining her roughness and softness.
I give this 3.5 STARS because I felt I need a little for umph to the storyline though I was thoroughly entertained and will read the next book to this series.
Received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review.
