SEAL’s Pretend Girlfriend by Leslie North
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This storyline centers around an ex-Navy Seal dealing with his father’s death. His father ran a private investigation office. Neal meets his father’s assistant at the funeral, where she drops a bombshell on him. Lori tells Neal that she believes his father was murdered even though it appears he had a heart attack. To get to the bottom of this, Neal will need to do something he had vowed never to do: get involved with private investigations because he believed his father chose his work as a PI over his family. In order to help Lori discover if his father was really murdered, Neal will need to team up with Lori and pretend to be her boyfriend. This is the start of a roller coaster ride of emotions, along with the real dangers the two discover as they dig deeper into the death of Neal’s father. It is a face-paced good read with his two brothers and Navy Seals being called in for backup as things heat up. It includes murder, mystery, and romantic suspense. It is a great start, and I am looking forward to reading the rest of the series.
