About Call to Engage:

Lieutenant Elijah Prescott should be spending his precious leave somewhere with sun, surf and scantily clad women. Instead, he's heading home with two goals in mind. Figure out exactly how his last assignment went to hell and almost killed him—and reconnect with the woman who might offer salvation.
Ava Monroe has streamlined her life, eliminating every source of pain—including a marriage touched by tragedy. One glimpse of her ex and those good intentions turn to bad-girl desires. Her strategy: get over Elijah by getting under him again, sating herself until she can finally let go. But as betrayal within the rank of the SEALs turns deadly, there's no denying that her heart and her life are on the line. Elijah is the only man who can protect both…

My Thoughts:

The author has an interesting way to grab the reader’s attention.  Left me thinking that I won’t be going anywhere for a while.  Even though this is part of a series, I don’t feel you have to read the books in order.  But in order to understand the group of men that Elijah Prescott works with, you may just want to make sure to read all the books that come out in this series.

Elijah “Rembrandt” Prescott shows us that being in the military takes a very special person.  And that not every person can handle all that goes with the job.  But they fool themselves into thinking they can handle it all by themselves.  And there’s really only one person you can rely on.  Right?

Ava Monroe has a life where she won’t allow anyone to suffocate her spirit.  It’s interesting to see what a person might do so that they won’t get hurt.  Then a blast from her past ends up in her clearly organized world and turns it upside down.  She has a good friend named Chloe that keeps things real for Ava.  Chloe has her rethinking life and choices.  Mack is an experience.  He has a connection with both Ava and Elijah – wouldn’t mind meeting him.

Loved the “reunion” scene between our two main characters.  Wouldn’t mind being on the other side of the door.  And the scene after was kinda funny – wished I had been there in person.  The author does a great job at weaving Elijah’s two lives seamlessly through the story.  Not sure which one held my attention more.  One had mystery and suspense.  The other was watching a painful past creep into the present  - bated breath to see if it will lead to a future.  Also loved how great some of the secondary characters were.  But they didn’t overtake the story so that we would lose our focus on who this story was really about.

The author gives us our happy ending but also gives a hint as to the next book coming out in November.  You won’t realize it as you read this book, but one of the secondary characters is up next.  If you’re a fan of all things SEAL, you will enjoy getting to know this group of men and the women that come to love them. 


An excerpt from CALL TO ENGAGE
Copyright © Tawny Weber 2017


That was the only word in his head as the aftershocks trembled through their bodies.


And then he came down.

Not in a nice, slow, gentle descent, either.

Nope, he crashed like a plane plummeting from the sky to ram into a mountainside.

He’d just had sex.

With Ava.

His ex-wife. The only woman he’d ever loved. The only one he’d ever wanted to love. The one who’d broken his heart into tiny little pieces and tossed them aside.


His body still slick with sweat, the scent of Ava wrapped around him like a second skin, Elijah wondered if she realized that while extracting her promise of no regrets, he hadn’t offered the same.

After all, Elijah knew just how pointless promises could be. Especially the ones between him and Ava.

His body spent, his mind worn, he couldn’t find anything left to offer up on the altar of past regrets, though. He wrapped his arm tighter around her shoulders. Ava responded by snuggling closer, her thigh nestled between his as she shifted her chin into the indention where his shoulder met his chest. Her breath fluttered over his throat, soft and easy in sleep.


Oh yeah, he knew he’d regret this in the morning. Hell—he glanced out the window, gauging the time from the angle of the moon—it was nearing dawn and the regret was already winding through him. Shoving aside pleasure, easing out satisfaction.

Closing his eyes against it, he drifted into sleep with her hand entwined with his, the twisted band of her ring rubbing gently between his fingers.

And he knew it for the talisman it was, the hope that lifted him from his nightmares.

If only for tonight.

Because nobody knew better than Elijah that tonight was all they had.
