Maddie Benson has spent her entire life in Sugar Falls and has never ventured—nor wanted to venture—beyond her small town’s safe borders. But when her delivery job takes her to the doorstep of one very reclusive, former Navy SEAL, Sebastian McIntyre, her small town perceptions are challenged with every conversation they have. It’s not long before she’s losing herself—and her heart—to the mysterious man behind the door.Bastian’s scars are deeper than the surface. They’re embedded into his soul, and he’s content to keep them buried. But the second Maddie ends up on his doorstep with her sparkling smile and her sunshine hair, his quiet new life shatters and she just might be able to excise the demons he’s tried hard to keep tucked away—if he lets her in.When Bastian’s old life comes haunting them, he knows he should let her go. But the light she shines on his soul keeps the darkness within him at bay. Letting her go may take more strength than he has, and keeping her close could get her killed.This title is #5 in the Lucky Thirteen series, though all books can be read as standalone stories.
While Once Upon a SEAL (Lucky Thirteen #5) by S.M. Butler might be readable as a standalone I am not sure I would recommend it as such. At least as far as some secondary plot strings go, because I did not read the previous books and I had trouble understanding some connections.
The main plot string is a kind of Beauty and Beast storyline that is well written and an enjoyable read. So lovers of that genre that like to see such a setting with a touch of military will find what they are looking for here. The writing is well developed and the characters are truly likeable, therefore Enjoy
