Still working through things. We were right in the path of Hurricane Michael (like so many others), and while the family is safe (pups, and parents), the house didn't fair as well. Baby steps back into the blogging world and started to grow, so you know, a post here, a post there, and away we go! Hope you stay along for the ride!

PUYB presents... Navy SEAL's Match by Amber Leigh Williams!

Hi there!
Welcome back to Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers.

Today, we're joining Pump Up Your Book for a stop along their current tour featuring a new Contemporary Romance via Harlequin Books!  It's from their Superromance line toting books with "more story...more romance", and honestly, it lives up to the tagline.  So, if you're ready to discover your next must read, scroll on because today's book of choice and blog tour guest is on deck...

Fairhope, Alabama, Book 6
Amber Leigh Williams

“I know it’d be better for you if I left.” “You let me be the judge of that,” she advised. “The moment you’re burdened by me,” he said, slowly, “I’m out of here.” She didn’t agree. No. Instead, she raised herself onto her toes. Gavin’s eyes closed and his breath hitched as her kiss washed breathily over his lips and blew him away. Answers cropped up inside him, bright like candles. His hand moved to the back of her head, no more able to snuff them out than he was to convince her to walk away.

About the book...
He believes he can’t be saved—she’ll prove him wrong!

Former SEAL Gavin Savitt always knew who he was—until his last deployment ended tragically. Now he’s home, his mind hijacked by trauma and the shadow of his once-perfect sight. Yet in this new hazy, unclear world, one person stands out—Mavis Bracken.

There are a million reasons why Gavin shouldn’t be with Mavis, including that she’s his best friend’s little sister. Yet he longs for her touch, her freckles and her special way with wild, skittish beasts like him. He just needs the courage to take his life back. And Mavis won’t let him give up without a fight.

Okay, truth be told, I initially had a hard time getting into this one. I WANTED to fall in love from the start, but I wasn't feeling the connections with the characters, their histories, or the story itself.

Mavis and Gavin felt like a one-off situation, not likely to actually happen. I mean they were both incredible characters, so much stronger than either believed and with so much heart buried beneath the layers, but a relationship? It felt like a shot in the dark...but then things started to change. We were shown the "demons" in both of their closets and how they've struggled against them over the years. We were brought into their circle of friends, and chosen family...because let's face it, some of the blood relatives were SO not worth the space they took up (hello, Tiffany!)...and invited to feel the love that surrounded them, even in their darkest moments. We witnessed the power of love not to heal, but to aid in the process, and the how that love can help move mountains. But wait...if you think they had it easy once they recognized something they might want to pursue, think again. I personally wanted to throttle Kyle for the asinine things he said and did....I don't care if his thought process was protecting his sister; he took it WAY too far! Then we have Tiffany, who I simply wanted to hurl off a cliff...the nerve of that woman, and to even call herself a mother was absolutely ridiculous! Quite literally the whole of their little town was against these two from the word go, but go they did and the miles they covered were well, let's just say they were worth it in the end.

All in all, it was a great story with a man formerly in uniform that's more than a little rough around the edges, learning to take life one moment, one heartbeat at a time. It reminds us to appreciate the little things, never take people for granted, and to let love in! Oh and Prometheus was a TOTAL BONUS! A more loving and supportive dog you couldn't ask for...
