Audiobook Review – Saved by the SEAL by Cat Johnson
Zane Alexander was born with a silver spoon in his mouth, but the rebellious bad boy traded it, along with his share of the family fortune, for a Navy SEAL trident and freedom from his controlling father.
Ten years later, Zane’s teammates are depending on him to secure the startup capital they need to open their security company and he’s gambling on his skills at covert operations to get it. For a million dollars he’ll fake interest in Missy Greenwood, the Senator’s daughter his father wants him to date in exchange for the investment.
But when Missy is kidnapped and Zane and his team are sent to Nigeria to rescue her and the others being held, bullets as well as sparks of attraction start to fly. There’s no more faking when the danger and the emotions both turn very real in this contemporary romantic suspense from New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Cat Johnson.

This is a newer author for me, I am very happy to have picked up this book. It was a quick little read that was rather delightful. Plenty of action and steam in this short read.
Love Zane’s attitude and Missy’s sass! They are quite the pair, attracted to each other but not wanting to fall into their parent’s plans. It was a swift leap to love with this book, something I am not always a fan of, I prefer the whole courtship over time.
I love a mixed narrative, really helps you see both characters clearly and understand their motives. It is especially key here because they are not really on the same page when things start. I do see this as a love will grow sort of relationship.
The smexy stuff is delicious, especially when read by Craig Jessen who is a delightful narrator. His smooth tone rolls over you as he keeps the story moving at a steady pace. I will definitely be looking for more of his reads!! Yummy yummy!
In the end I would have liked the story to be a bit longer, I think that would have helped sell the romance more. Do not get me wrong there is chemistry, but it is more lust than love at this point. I tend to like more show than tell in my romances. I will be looking for other reads from this author, because I hear she has more hot SEALs! Love a man in uniform!
