The Final Reveal Dale Mayer read online review & book description:

This is a novella tying up the SEALs of Steel series.

A prosthetic design engineer, Kat Greenwald is in love with Badger Horley. The former SEALs team leader is the love of her life. But she's seen and heard firsthand of the fears and commitment issues Badger and his closest friends--once part of Navy special operations teams--struggle with on a daily basis. During their weekly get-togethers, the women in love with these former SEALs open up to each other about their longing to tie the knot and start families. 

More than two years ago, Badger was badly injured after the truck his eight-man unit were in hit an antitank landmine. While he and his team have finally discovered the truth behind that devastating set-up, Badger sees the reality of his precarious future. His health could decline at any moment and he wants Kat to know exactly where the door to get out is if and when it does. The last thing he wants to do is invite pity, especially where the woman he loves is concerned. In a perfect world, he would have proposed to her the day they met. In the world he lives in, he can only conclude that harboring fears are always better than regrets. 

But Kat isn't the type of woman to fear hard times and she's willing to take a leap of faith as far out into the unknown as she can get if it means her most fervent wish comes true.

    This is book 8 in the final book in the SEALs of Steel series. This story involves all seven SEALs and their girlfriends but spends more time with Badger and Kat. WOW! All the planning and emotional stress is incredible. I can only imagine how Kat felt. These men have all been medically discharged from the service and are a close knit family. I love how they want to live within walking distance from each other. They’re only trying to decide what to do with the rest of their lives. Leave it to the women to take charge and alter the course of all their lives forever. I love it! I only wish we could have seen each of their reactions to the big reveal. This is a fantastic end to an equally fantastic series. BRAVO! I look forward to reading whatever this author brings us next.

    After seven troubled, highly emotional episodes, the Seals of Steel saga reaches a turning point in book 8. The Final Reveal, in fact, is a light hearted, entertaining novelette, acting as an epilogue for the previous books, and, of course, as an opening the path for new adventures. While the story does hint at the difficulties burdening our wounded veteran protagonists, the tone remains light and joyful as the characters move towards professional and personal stability. The entire cast of characters from the previous episodes, in addition to many from Ms. Mayer’s other series, populate the narration.The plot flows nicely and is brimmed with witty dialogues and entertaining episodes. Overall, the Final Reveal is a pleasant, light, and entertaining book bound to satisfy the affectionate fans of the series, as garnering new readers to the series.  I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book. Opinions and comments are solely my own.

    I was kindly provided this book as an ARC; in exchange for my honest review. This is book 8 in the SEALs Of Steel series. The “SEALs of Steel” were an eight-man SEAL team unit that was misled/ambushed/given “bogus” orders that caused them to hit a landmine during transport. All the men were grievously injured and one man (“Mouse”) died. The remaining seven SEALs have solved the mystery as to what happened and why; and now they need to figure out what they want to do with the rest of their lives. You certainly must read this series in order or you will be lost. This is definitely a series with layers of stories within a STORY. The women who love the former SEALs open up to each other about their longing to tie the knot and start families. More than two years ago, the team was badly injured after the truck the eight-man unit were ambushed by an antitank landmine. The men fear committing because their injuries are severe and could cause more health issues down the line. This fear has made the men reluctant to marry their loves out of fear of trapping them in a “pity love” situation. The women take the initiative a leap of faith into the unknown. Levi, I’ve, and Albert make an appearance; and Levi has a surprise all his own. This was a “warm-fuzzy” conclusion to the SEALs Of Steel series. Much back and forth between the women, that honestly could’ve been shorter, but, overall worked. This is a fast read, it’s pretty much a forgone ending (no surprises), but nicely wraps up everything for the reader. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
  • The Final Reveal (and Glimpses of the Future)

    The Final Reveal is the final book of the eight book series SEALS of Steel. What a finish! Best of all, it is not a rehash of the previous books. There are just brief glimpses of the past books and the focus is on the here and now of the family of warriors (men and women). We see all 7 SEALS and their ladies, each unique in their strengths and weaknesses, their talents and their fears. I loved the books (stayed up long past bedtime to finish this book) and THE FINAL REVEAL is a fitting topper to this series. I am going to pull out my collection and will be rereading these rich tales in the very near future. Bravo !! Best of all, it is not goodbye but see you later for later books still coming up.
