⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 4 out of 5
Deadly Scandals was originally published as the novellas Covet, Smug, and Slack. These books were 7, 8, & 9, in the Se7en Deadly SEALs serial.
Mia has to come to terms with her reality, but now she has to do it alone. Grant has been arrested for a crime that she knows he didn’t commit, but he confessed so that they can find Julian. Mia has to pretend to go along with Joaquin if she wants to save Grant and Julian, as well as keep herself alive to have the life she has dreamt about with Grant.
Grant is convinced that he and Mia will get Julian back if they just stick to the plan he has laid out. With Mitch and Ashley’s help, they’ll find Julian and put Joaquin behind bars for his crimes. The only problem is that Mia is going to take a lot of convincing that her brother is guilty of everything they’ve told her.
I have been enjoying the Se7en Deadly SEAL’s Series and Deadly Scandals has not disappointed. There is a lot going on in this story and a lot of character to follow, but the story is intriguing, entertaining, and angsty. Ashley and Mia have a lot of issues with each other as well as with their pasts. They bring a lot into the story and make me want to shake them both to say open your eyes and shut your mouth for a bit and you might find what you are looking for. They are similar in a lot of ways, but they are also each their own person. Their characters are strong, independent, and loyal. They are both determined to find the truth and are willing to go the extra mile as well as put themselves in danger to get what they are looking for. I give this story a 4-star review and look forward to more in this series. I am now as determined as Mia and Ashely to find out who is behind all of the turmoil the SEALs have been going through and why. The cliff hangers are brutal though, just when I think I’m going to find something out, the book ends. Great job keeping me guessing and wanting more Ms. Albertson.
