Cowboy SEAL Homecoming
Nicole Helm

Reviewed by Patti Loveday

Romance Western | Romance Military

COWBOY SEAL HOMECOMING is the first book in the Navy SEAL Cowboys book series by Nicole Helm and is a military contemporary romance novel. I found this novel to be an intense and realistic read with a heavy content focus on mental health issues that many SEAL members face when returning home. A topic that many people can relate to or know someone who is suffering. This illness affects not only the service member but their family and friends as well.

The development of Alex and Becca's relationship encounters is a wide range of emotions that help to build a strong bond between the two of them. Becca also develops friendships with Gabe and Jack. She understands to an extent what they are facing and tries to help be there as a friend for them. The character development is so profound in this novel taking you on quite a ride as you read and watch them grow and become their true selves. You will experience first hand what it is like for everyone around them in their lives while they struggle with their mental health. An illness that is hard for some to understand or accept.

Helm writes with such an open and caring heart that it shows with each word or scene she creates. She really has created an outstanding story and one that many can understand. The setting plays hand in hand with the overall theme and plot of the story by creating the picture-perfect backdrop for such a relatable read. A cowboy out on the open range is the ideal place to help deal and work through problems. COWBOY SEAL HOMECOMING is setting up the scene for a wonderful book series. The ending is not a cliffhanger but seems to build up anticipation for the next book in the Navy SEAL Cowboys book series. I cannot wait to read the next book Cowboy SEAL Redemption!

SUMMARY

Three former Navy SEALs
Injured in the line of duty
Desperate for a new beginning...
Searching for a place to call their own.

Alex Maguire never thought he'd go home again. The perfect soldier, the perfect leader, he's spent his whole life running away from Blue Valley, Montana—but when a tragic accident bounces him and two of his men out of the SEALs, there's nowhere left to turn but the ranch he used to call his own...and the confusing, innocently beguiling woman who now lives there.

Becca Denton's like nothing he could have imagined. She's far too tempting for her own good, but when she offers to help turn the ranch into a haven for injured veterans, he can't exactly say no. He'll just need to keep his distance. But something in her big green eyes makes Alex want to set aside the mantle of the perfect soldier and discover the man he could have been...safe and whole within the shelter of her arms.
