Zane Alexander was born with a silver spoon in his mouth, but the rebellious bad boy traded it in for a Navy SEAL trident.
Now, Zane's teammates are depending on him to get the startup capital they need to open their security company and he's gambling on his skills at covert operations. For a million dollars, he'll fake interest in Missy Greenwood, the Senator's daughter his father wants him to date in exchange for the investment.
But when Missy is kidnapped and Zane and his team are sent to Nigeria to rescue her and the schoolgirls being held, bullets as well as sparks of attraction start to fly. There's no more faking when both the danger and the emotions are all very real.

It's hard to compare these books with others I've listened to. They stand on their own. I became acquainted with Cat Johnson’s books at the Coastal Magic Convention last year. Since then, I’ve read two books in her Oklahoma Nights series, three books in her Midnight Cowboys series and listened to two of her Hot SEALs books. That doesn’t count the books I’ve picked up to read soon! Her books always hold my interest with well-plotted story lines. I love her sexy heroes whether they are cowboys or military. If you enjoy intriguing romances with spice, sizzle and dangerous thrills, I’d recommend that you check out one of her books. I wish all of her books were in audio with a narrator like Craig Jessen!
If I could only choose one, I'd have to say Zane. But... I really liked both Zane and Missy. They are drawn as realistic, upstanding characters who care about the world and its people. I shudder at the thought of growing up with Zane's father. Missy may be a society girl, but she’s down-to-earth.
Craig Jessen nails the narration of this series. His voice is clear. His performance is polished. His delivery is natural and well-paced. He differentiates between the characters, pausing at the appropriate times. His performance enhanced my enjoyment of the book. I am glad to see that he’s narrated the first five books in this series. Unfortunately, the rest aren’t available as audios – so I will have to switch to reading the books after that.
I shuddered at the idea of having a father like Zane's. AND a mother like Missy's - though she was nowhere as terrible as Zane's. I laughed with the couple as they became re-acquainted! This is an example of the humor:
"That reminds me. Make sure you drink a lot of water while you're there, or you'll dehydrate fast. And if you find yourself not peeing, or your urine is dark in color, you're not drinking enough."
The last thing in the world she'd ever wanted to discuss with Zane Alexander was the color of her pee.
I held my breath during the suspenseful parts and cheered at parts too!,
Saved by a SEAL by Cat Johnson is another exciting, fast-paced installment in the author’s Hot SEALS series. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to playboy Zane's story. Even though this is the second book in the series, it can be enjoyed as a standalone, if that is your preference. The romantic relationship and the development of the danger plot are fully contained within this novel. That said, your enjoyment in the book would be increased if you have read the series in order, as the character development of Zane and his friends began in the first book.
This is a newer author for me, I am very happy to have picked up this book. It was a quick little read that was rather delightful. Plenty of action and steam in this short read.
Love Zane’s attitude and Missy’s sass! They are quite the pair, attracted to each other but not wanting to fall into their parent’s plans. It was a swift leap to love with this book, something I am not always a fan of, I prefer the whole courtship over time.
I love a mixed narrative, really helps you see both characters clearly and understand their motives. It is especially key here because they are not really on the same page when things start. I do see this as a love will grow sort of relationship.
The smexy stuff is delicious, especially when read by Craig Jessen who is a delightful narrator. His smooth tone rolls over you as he keeps the story moving at a steady pace. I will definitely be looking for more of his reads!! Yummy yummy!
In the end I would have liked the story to be a bit longer, I think that would have helped sell the romance more. Do not get me wrong there is chemistry, but it is more lust than love at this point. I tend to like more show than tell in my romances. I will be looking for other reads from this author, because I hear she has more hot SEALs! Love a man in uniform!
I'm addicted to audiobooks, particularly thrillers and erotic reads. I'd love for you to follow my reviews!
I loved the first book in this series, and I loved this second one even more. Zane was a great character, and the author really helps us dive in and understand this tormented "bad boy." It's fun to watch his development, and how many of us would love to really be saved by our heroes? Another hit for Johnson. Recommend this whole series!
enjoyable romantic journey
Zane because he's a gorgeous SEAL and Craig Jessen brought him to life
There were several scenes I enjoyed, including the shopping outing
A journey of romantic discovery
I really enjoyed Craig Jessen laidback flowing narration of Zane and Missy discovering love
Cause both the story and the narrator are awesome
The end when Zane admits how he feels
When Missy was rescued
Another great story to Cat's Seals series. I read/listened this one on audible. It's another short but great story. If you like Cat's books you don't want to miss this one. If you like good audible books you need to read this one
