Review:The Navy Seal's Accidental Wife (Ballybeg Bad Boys, #5) by Zara Keane

After months on an undercover operation that went explosively wrong, former Navy SEAL JD Teller has one week to win back his estranged wife before the birth of their baby. Can he convince Naomi that she’s the love of his life? Or will their happiness be torn asunder by a ruthless diamond smuggler with a particular hatred for JD?

What I thought about The Navy Seal's Accidental Wife

This 30,000-word action-adventure romance novella is part of the ROMANCING THE ALPHA 2 multiauthor action-adventure romance boxed set. I'm a big fan of Zara Keane's Ballybeg characters and this spinoff series Ballybeg Bad Boys is full of sexy alphas and their women that don't take crap from anyone.

In The Navy Seal's Accidental Wife, JD Teller is returning to a wife that he married and then left for an assignment.  She's been left alone to deal with being pregnant and unsure about her future. Both of them aren't sure what's going to happen next, except for the fact that Naomi is now nine months pregnant and a baby will be part of their lives any moment.

JD's assignment didn't go well, and the criminal he's trying to apprehend is still at large. When he happens to run into the diamond smuggler at Naomi's place of work, it sets off all sorts of red flags for JD and his attempts to work out things with Naomi are distracted by the criminals he's trying to capture.

I really loved JD in this novella.  He's got a good heart and his interactions with Naomi and both sensitive and loving.  I've got to give Zara some kudos for giving the reader some very hot loving between JD and 9-month-preggers Naomi. There was definite heat between JD and Naomi.


Things get complicated once JD is called upon to continue his assignment and Naomi inadvertently gets involved in the chase.  There are some tense moments here for the couple and that made the end of this novella just fly by in a very good way. 

I really liked this story. It's perfectly sized for an afternoon, the pace is very good and will keep you engaged to the end, and it's easy to root for these characters to make a go of it.  

 
This title appears in the Romancing the Alpha 2 anthology, released on July 12.  The price is a very low 99 cents for release week, so grab yourself a copy!
