SEAL of My Dreams Anthology Review

There is nothing sexier and lovable than a man who protects his country but those in the elite services have a special place in our hearts. SEAL of My Dreams is a collection of 18 short-stories about the elite of the elite, Navy SEALs. SEAL of My Dreams is a heartwarming collection that showcases the love, devotion and sacrifices made by these brave soldiers and their families. From soldiers returning home after spending years putting their personal lives on hold and missing out on key family events while they protect their country to running special ops to save the ones they love, this anthology has it all.

A couple of the stories had me tearing up, especially Dog Heart by Barbara Samuel. Marcus Stone finds himself returning to the woman who broke his heart after he is injured while on a mission. Marcus had sworn never to return but when his team’s combat dog shows signs of PTSD after a blast kills three team members and injuries five others, he realizes that Jessie is the only one who can help Sgt. Thor. The scars, both physical and emotional, that Marcus and Thor suffer just touched my heart, causing me to tear up several times when I stopped to think about the real men, women and animals who put themselves on the front line all the time and end up living with the scars of their sacrifice for the rest of their life.

I highly recommend SEAL of My Dreams because besides being a great fundraiser, the authors do a fabulous job of showing the heart, devotion and sacrifice of these elite soldiers. Be aware that there is some use of the f* word in several of the stories and it definitely rates as a five flaming hearts on the sex content scale but it is a great collection of authors.

All proceeds from sales of SEAL of My Dreams goes to the Veterans Research Corporation, a non-profit fundraiser for veterans’ medical research. So not only are you getting some great stories, you are helping raise money for a good cause.
