With only 48 hours back on home soil for Christmas, United States Army Corporal Saskia Cullen is desperate to spend every minute with her young son. So when heavy snowfall closes JFK airport and she misses her connecting flight, she’s devastated. Until Navy SEAL Luke Gray offers to keep her company… and then personally finds a way to get her home.
Luke is back in the US on leave, waiting to hear the details of his next mission, and Saskia proves to be a pleasant distraction. And when he hears that she needs to get home to see her son, he’s prepared to do anything to help the sexy single mom. Trouble is, he hadn’t planned on falling for anyone, let alone a beautiful soldier about to return overseas.
The Navy Seal's promise was a cute and heartwarming read. It was the first novel I'd read by Soraya Lane. It was quick paced and flowed smoothly. It was a short read and still it left me with a smile on my face.
The story is about Luke Gray, a Navy SEAL who meets United States Army Corporal Saskia Cullen on a flight. Saskia is headed home for Christmas on 48 hours leave hoping to see her son. But unfortunately she finds herself stranded on JFK due to a snowstorm. This is when Luke decides to help the beautiful woman he met on the flight by making sure she reaches home to her son for Christmas.
Luke and Saskia both have unfavorable pasts with Luke losing his wife three years ago to Cancer and Saskia hurting due to the fact that their son's father wants nothing to do with them. It was amazing to see how both of them managed to know and understand each other so well in such a shot span of time. It never once made me feel like it was unreal.
I loved the conversations between Luke and Saskia. The epilogue was just so sweet. I enjoyed seeing their happy ending. Soraya Lane's writing style is to the point while delivering characters to whom we can instantly relate to. If you're looking for a sweet quick contemporary romance The Navy Seal's Promise is definitely the book for you.
