Band of Bachelors: Lucas by Sharon Hamilton

From New York Times Bestseller, Sharon Hamilton, comes this full length, standalone novel.

Special Operator Lucas Shipley thought his living arrangement was temporary, since getting booted from the house by his wife. He sleeps on a couch in the apartment with four other divorced Navy SEALs, thinking he’ll get the call to come home any day. He ignores the not-so-helpful advice his buddies are giving him about marriage, women and romance. Until he gets served with divorce papers.

Realtor Marcy Gelland is hired by Lucas’ soon-to-be ex-wife to liquidate all their real estate holdings and help her orchestrate a speedy departure from Lucas’ life. Based on what the hot-headed SEAL wife has told her, Marcy understands Lucas deserves every ounce of pain coming his way.

But when Marcy and Lucas are left alone together in a remote Northern California woods, they ignite a personal bonfire that threatens to burn down the whole forest. Marcy is forced to see she is wrong about Lucas.

Amidst the backdrop of hardened bachelor SEALs with their unsolicited, anti-long-term relationship advice, and a terrorist training camp operating nearby, Lucas must do what he’s always done: be the hero and save the day. But will it be in time to save Marcy?

What I loved most about this book was the author’s betrayal of the men’s men this group of guys truly is. They’re gritty, raunchy at times, and total bachelors. I think it’s probably the most accurate portrayal of a bunch of dudes that I’ve read. They like their danger high, sex raw, and women strong but understanding. Lucas was a great character to read as well as Marcy. I also loved the suspense aspect and thought how the author pulled the whole plot together was done really well. (Amazon reader)
