Everyone knows there is no “I” in team, but to Macs Newstead--orgasm-gifting, muscle-filled Navy SEAL hero--there are more important words than team. Words like victory and vanity and selfishness. People say those words like they are a bad thing, but to Macs, they’re simply tools in his highly effective arsenal. When a man’s entire existence revolves around the necessity to end lives, silly, mundane things like second dates or monogamy seem worthy sacrifices.
Downward facing dog or doggy-style--it’s all the same to Teala Smart, a whip-smart yoga instructor. She owns her studio like she owns her life--with focus, positive energy, and pure devotion. That devotion, however, does not trickle into her love life (or more accurately, her lust life.) Relationships are a roadblock to her success. They get in the way and tangle up emotions more than the lotus pose tangles up limbs. Men are best kept just for a night and then released into the wild before feelings get too messy.
HERO HAIR, the second novel of International Bestselling Author Rachel Robinson’s THE REAL SEAL SERIES, is the account of an life-altering journey detailing the awakening of two hollow hearts, both set on taking their own pleasures without any emotional attachment. The ruthless SEAL finally meets an enemy he can’t defeat, and both Macs and Teala find, against their wishes, and despite atrocious circumstances, a chemistry so explosive it leaves nothing but deconstructing love in its wake.
Let’s get this out of the way first. HOLY FUCKING COVER! I almost didn’t even read the book because I couldn’t get past the cover. I’m pretty sure that I had to wipe some drool from my mouth at an airport bar for about an hour before I even started reading.
This is my first Rachel Robinson book. I would say that the cover is what drew me in but it was really the blurb. I’ve always liked the upfront promescious guy who falls hard and was intrigued with the idea that he meets his female rival and falls for her. After the prologue, my expectations were high. I was laughing so hard and really enjoyed the banter so I was ready to buckle down for all out laughs. What I didn’t expect was the bit of angst that came along with it. I’m all for angst, it just want’s what I was expecting.
I will admit that there was something that held me back from fully connecting to this book. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed it but I think my expectations after the prologue just weren’t met. The story was good in general and I really liked both Teala and Macs. I think some sections might have been a bit too detailed for my liking, which could have been why I didn’t fully connect.
Again, don’t let my rating fool you. I did enjoy this book and I look forward to reading more from this author. I think a lot of people will enjoy Hero Hair. It’s funny, a tiny bit angsty and overall a joy to watch two people with major commitment issues fall hard for one another.
