#Book #Review *Hell or High Water*

In a world on the brink
Six men. One sunken Spanish galleon. Millions in gold and silver coins lying on the ocean floor. And a past that refuses to let the guys of Deep Six Salvage forget the Navy SEAL motto: the only easy day was yesterday...
There's more than one kind of treasure
The nation's security has always been CIA agent Olivia Mortier's top priority. But a mission-gone-wrong has begun to make her wonder if there's more to life than risking hers.
And more than one secret at the bottom of the sea
Only two things could make Leo Anderson abandon his hunt for the legendary lost ship, La Santa Christina, and return to the world of weapons and warfare he swore to leave behind: a capsule of enriched uranium, lost on the ocean floor, and a plea for assistance from the one woman he can't seem to forget...
As much as I loved this book, I have to admit the beginning started very slowly for me. I don't know why. It just seemed like it was a "lull" rather than a "boom" to start with. It didn't exactly suck me right in from the beginning and I actually had to make myself push through the first couple of chapters.
What I thought was going to be a ho-hum ride with a group of ex-SEALS turned into an action packed page turner. And let's not forget some truly great romantic tension. Honest. In the world of romance, there's either romantic tension or there's some sloppy story filled with paragraphs that the tension simply doesn't build up. This is NOT that kind of book. It worked.
Every fan of military romance needs to give this one a read. Don't let the beginning fool you - it's a great ride :)
