Dog Eared Publicity Presents: Easton by Dale Mayer; #BookTour, #NowAvailable, #OutNow, #Review

Rating:  5 Stars

Disclosure of Material Connection:  I received this book for review from Dog Eared Publicity and the author.  I was not compensated nor was I required to write a positive review.  The opinions I have expressed are my own.  I am posting this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255:  "Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising".

Trips to Canada’s wilderness for joint military training are something Easton always enjoys. But meeting the photographer contracted to take pictures of the base and trainees for new marketing materials adds a whole new twist to the trip. 

A twist Easton quickly realizes has a dark undertone.

Summer knows she gets lost in her art to the point she’s been called ditzy, forgetful and many other less pleasant names. But her passionate nature has an outlet, and she loves traveling for her work. It also means she doesn’t always take care of herself as she should.

When she’s stalked, then attacked, Easton soon realizes Summer has stepped into something dangerous and needs his help to stay alive.

Especially when the violence escalates…and he comes close to losing the one woman he can’t seem to stay away from.

My Thoughts:

Easton Gallagher meets Summer Jones in a most interesting way.  She’s not trying to but she’ll get you laughing.  Some may say she’s an airhead but I would say her brain just works overtime.  You could also say that she really loves her job.

I got to chapter three and knew that I need to check out more of this series.  Our author had a way that grabbed me as soon as our main characters met.  She gives me just enough to get me to laugh.  She hooks me first with the laughter but then slides the suspense in.  Don’t know which I liked more the humor or the mystery but it’s a combination that works very well here. And our main characters aren’t jumping each other’s bones right out of the gate – it’s all about building the story. 

What’s good about this book is that I don’t have to read the twelve books that came before in order to enjoy this one.  It’s a book that can stand on its own but it’s also a good incentive to check out the other SEALs that I’ve already missed.  Now I won’t get them all read before book fourteen comes out in October but that’s ok I’m sure that I’ll get them all read at some point.  And book sets are a great way to go too.

One thing with Summer was that she never really freaked out with everything going on around her.  This just shows the faith that she has in the people around her.  But she has a few surprises up her sleeve that adds to our enjoyment of this story.  I loved her protectiveness toward men that she hadn’t known very long.  It was great to see that the easy banter between Easton and Summer carry all the way to the end. And the ending is a look into what’s to come.
