The Poseidon team are hard-bodied, fiercely competitive navy SEALs. But when a sensitive mission goes disastrously wrong, three of the team’s finest will have to trust their hearts and instincts to uncover the truth…

“No man left behind” is inscribed in the DNA of every SEAL and Lieutenant Diego Torres is no exception. But with a team member killed—and the body missing—Diego's honor is sorely tested. Now his career and reputation are on the line, and a traitor is hiding among them. Diego wants answers…and only one woman has them.

Single mom Harper Maclean has two priorities—raising her son Nathan and starting a new life. Her mysterious new neighbor may be impossibly charming, but Diego asks too many questions about her past—and about the father of her child. Questions she fears will reveal her burning attraction for Diego, and ultimately put them all in danger’s path.

3 out of 5 (good)


Call to Honor is a solid read, detailing the story of Harper, Nathan, and Diego. Harper and Nathan are mother and son, Diego is the Navy SEAL/Poseidon trying to clear his team's (and his own) name. Sent to watch a team member's ex-girlfriend and mother of his son, Diego gets more than he bargained for with Harper and Nathan. Harper has pulled herself up by her bootstraps, and made a good life for herself and her son. Nathan is a total dude, brave, fearless, and opinionated about heroes, which I quite agree with. 

Call to Honor is a long story which delves into treason, betrayal, Cayman Island bank accounts, plus much more. Both funny and hot, it also has plenty of action. The main characters' story is mostly told, with a HFN ending. There are plenty of others to choose from for the rest of the series, although it is Prescott's turn next.

Well written, with no editing or grammatical errors to disrupt the reading flow, this was an enjoyable story. It just seemed so long, and I don't know why. I can't think of any gaps where nothing happened, but it just seemed to last for a long time. So, for that reason, definitely recommended if you want a Summer beach read to last a fortnight!

A mission goes wrong for the Poseidon SEAL team and one of their own is lost. The team then come under investigation for treason. Diego is sent to watch and learn about Harper, ex-girlfriend to the missing man. To see if she holds the secrets of the missing man and the treason charge. Harper has but ONE secret: that of her son, Nathan. And when he goes missing from camp, the full force of the team that is Poseidon land in Harper's house.

You know how I hate not being able to word what I want to say? This book, right here. All I'm left with is nice. And NICE really isn't the right word but for the life of me, I can't find that bloody word!!

It's well written, from both Diego and Harper's point of view. Nathan also gets a little bit of a voice, and I loved that. Brave little man, that Nathan. It's sexy in places and it's deadly in others. 

While Diego, Harper and Nathan get their happy ever after, the treason story line and that of the missing man is left unfinished. It lays the way for another team member's story, but that doesn't come next. Kinda knocked me for a loop, that one! 

I loved how Diego discovered things as suspicious, and on the surface, they really could have been, but they were written away in a highly believable way. Someone trying to keep a secret takes things a little too far! I loved Andi, Harper's best friend, and the part she plays keeping Harper grounded.

Will I read future books in this series?? I hope to get the chance. I like the way Weber spins her tales, how she intertwines everyone and everything. 

I wrote 4 stars at the top of the page (why yes, I do actually write them on paper before typing them up!) and I am gonna stick to it. Had I been able to find the right bloody word, another word other than NICE, I might have upgraded it but since I can't find the word....

4 solid stars
