Anthologies like this are some times hard to review. With some many stories (18) in one book, my review would be way to long. So I'm going to try and keep this story but hit all the good points. 

For the most point I really enjoy the book as a whole. Some stories stuck out more then others but for the most part they are all pretty good. 

As you can tell from the title the common thread of the book are Navy SEALs. How hot, right? Some of the stories are when they are active, others when they are now starting a new chapter in their lives. There are even a couple holiday themed ones. 

SEAL Of My Dreams has something for everyone. You won't be able to say you didn't like some unless your not a fan of military stories and in that case why the would you have even tried it? 

A few of my favorites of the series is Baby, I'm Back by Stephanie Bond also Signed, SEALed, Delivered I'm Yours by Christie Ridgway. I really loved these two. One that I was not the happiest with is SEALed by Fate by Marliss Melton. It wasn't a complete story. It read more like a prologue. Wasn't happy. Or I should say that I was happy till the end. 

All the rest of the story fell in the good to okay pile. I liked them but wasn't jumping for joy. I'm glad I finally took the time to read this one and it's well worth you trying. 

If you've read SEAL Of My Dreams or any book by any of the authors I'd love to hear your thoughts. Thanks for visiting and happy reading! ♡
