A SEAL's Courage (Military Match #1) by J.M. Stewart

A sizzling new series about three friends looking for love-and the sexy SEALs who are ready to fulfill their craziest fantasies.

He's a man on a mission.
Navy SEAL Trent Lawson isn't a man to back down from a challenge. Ever since he opened his eyes in that army hospital to learn the men from his unit were gone, Trent has been determined to live life in their honor. Even if that means facing his most terrifying mission yet . . . dating.

She's done playing games.
Lauren Hayes has standards. In fact, she's got an entire list of them. There's only ever been one man to come close to making the cut-Trent Lawson. Except her best friend's too-sexy-for-his-own-good brother is strictly off-limits. 

When Trent and Lauren find themselves matched up by a dating service, the chemistry between them is nothing short of explosive. They both know getting involved is a huge mistake, but life is too short to walk away from something this good.

My review:
A SEAL's Courage should be renamed A SEAL's Courage and the courage of the women who love them. We expect SEAL’s to be strong and former SEAL Trent Lawson is fighting hard to recover from his time in the Navy. Nineteen months out and he is still suffering from PTSD, night terrors, the loss of his friend and his K9 partner and dealing with the scars on his body. He hasn’t been with a woman since his wife sent him a “Dear John” 2 years ago. He is working and his family is encouraging him to rejoin life. Get out. Date. Get laid. But the one woman who interests him is off limits because she is his baby sisters best friend.
Baker Lauren Hayes is a 28 year old virgin. Her mother was a serial dater and didn’t know who Lauren’s father was. Lauren is determined not to be like her mother. When her mother died Lauren was taken in by a religious woman who taught her that sex was for the marriage bed. So here she is a 28 year old virgin. Her friends set her up with a dating service Military Match and it sets her up with her best friends brother Trent Lawson, the guy she has lusted after since she was a kid.
I enjoyed watching Lauren stretch her wings and stand up for herself and what she wanted. She has been helping Trent recover and deserves a shot at happiness. This is a strong, well-written story filled with laughter and sorrow and true joy.
