Five Facts About Navy SEALs
In Chica Bella, Landon is a Navy SEAL who is ready for retirement. He had spent a long time on deployment, and he is ready to leave the military life and settle down in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, where the woman he loves, Maya, lives. But he's uncertain if he will be able to get that retirement he wants before the next deployment.
However, Maya is tired of worrying about him when he deploys, and isn't sure if her heart can take him back.
One phone call can make or break their relationship.
We all know that Navy SEALs are highly trained bad asses, but here are some facts that you may not know about the SEALs:
1. Between 75-80% of men who volunteer to go through the grueling SEAL training don't make it.
2. "The Budweiser" is the nickname for the SEAL trident. It was given this name because the Eagle on the badge resembles the eagle on can of Budweiser.
3. To become a Navy SEAL, it takes at least a year and half from boot camp until he is ready to join a SEAL team. After being placed on a team, he usually had another year or more for training prior to his first deployment.
4. The Navy SEALs aren't open to women.
5. Navy SEALs make up less that 1% of all United States Navy Personnel.
Although Landon is fictional, he is definitely the best of the best. Who doesn't love a SEAL?

Landon “Blackhawk” Walker is ready to get out of the Navy SEALs. He has seen and done enough, and can’t wait to get to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico where three tasks await him: get back into civilian mode, take a boat out to the El Arco Rocks, and win back the heart of the woman he lost because of his career.

Maya Gonzalez has tired of the heartbreak that comes with Landon’s deployments year after year. When he walks back into her life, she cannot deny her heart, despite her reservations.

As they lose themselves in each other and the beauty of Cabo, their passion is rekindled once again, but Maya knows that one phone call means deployment for Landon, putting an end to their reunion, and possibly their relationship.
 
 
Excerpt
“Where were you?” she finally asked, her voice quiet.
“Afghanistan.”
He didn’t look at her, but he felt her body tense next to his. “Were you hurt?”
He shrugged, but then thought better of trying to blow off her questions. Maya had always said she wanted nothing but honesty from him, and he had been the one to offer this Q&A.
“I took some shrapnel in my chest, but it was all superficial.” He gazed down at her as she studied his chest as if she could see the wounds he was talking about.
“Did you kill?” she whispered, her stare never leaving his chest.
Dammit. This was the part he hated because she abhorred violence, but killing was his job. If he didn’t take out the bad guys, they would kill American soldiers, and he would be damned if that happened on his watch. “Yes.”
She closed her eyes for a moment.
“Did you think of me?”
“Oh, God, Maya.” He put his finger under her chin and turned her face to his. Her brown eyes sparkled with tears that made his heart feel as though it might quit beating. “Maya, it’s always you. It’s thinking of you that made me want to stay alive. It’s the thought of your smile, your face, your body pressed up against mine that kept me warm at night, the sound of your laughter that made me smile when I felt like I couldn’t smile again. Maya....”
He didn’t know what else to say, so he did what he had wanted to do since the day he left her almost a year ago. He brought his lips to hers.

My Review:

Chica Bella was a fun, sexy, sensual read! WOW! As much as I think I would love to have a SEAL of my own....to have to live your life around waiting for that phone call that would take him away again would be so hard. It's a  wonder that Maya didn't give up on Landon. This is the first book that I have read from the Honor Guard series and I know I will be reading more.
