Special Forces instructor Blake Monroe has been tasked with “babysitting” his best friend’s sister on an overseas trip, but Zandra proves to be more trouble than he can handle—and far too tempting.

Zandra York just got her big break, photographing a major project for a travel magazine. So what if she’s never traveled out of the country before? Or that she’s more adept at deciphering fraudulent financial statements than reading German train schedules? Her brother Jackson is on his way to act as her guide, and she can’t wait to experience Europe with him.

But when Jackson’s overprotective best friend gets off the plane instead, Zandra knows this will not end well.

There isn't a damned thing Special Forces instructor Blake Monroe wouldn't do for his best friend, but babysit Zandra when Jackson is unexpectedly called away on a mission? Nope. Not on the list. Especially not when she proves to be more trouble than he can handle—and far too tempting.

Between accidentally hiring a hearse as their rideshare, an unprovoked goat attack, and photographing erotic-shaped chocolates, Blake and Zandra can’t keep their hands off each other. But Zandra’s new career is about to send her all over the world and Blake is finally ready to settle down after his next deployment.

He’ll never ask her to give up her dreams. And she’ll never ask him to give up his.

I read this beauty in one sitting, I could not put this down! The perfect combination of the unwilling meets the unknowing and a heap of sexual tension, humor and charm. Zandra and Jackson could not have been more perfect. Jackson is her brothers best friend who stands in for him when he's called ou ...more

By Jeeves Reads Romance November 13, 2019

This one didn’t grab me immediately, but once I got into the story I was definitely rooting for our couple to overcome the obstacles in their path. A brother’s best friend romance with a twist, this book pairs a woman just starting a job that will take her around the world, and a soldier who is coun ...more

By Linda November 24, 2019

Sweet and steamy…”Will they, won’t they”?
I truly enjoyed this story but it seemed to take soooo long for Zandra and Blake to accept their mutual feelings. With all the sexual tension in this book it still took to chapter 10 for the first kiss and then chapter 22 for sharing the bed. Btw, those scen ...more

Zandra York has known Blake Monroe since her teenage years. He was her brother’s best friend. An attraction simmered but she was too young and he had responsibilities.
When Zandra leaves her accounting job to work in her dream job as a photographer, her first assignment is in Europe. It’s her first o ...more

I received an advanced reader's copy of Seduced by the Soldier by Melia Alexander from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

This was the first book that I had read by Melia Alexander and I was pleasantly surprised to find an enjoyable new author to follow.

Overall, I enjoyed t ...more

This was a fun, quick read full of adventure and chemistry.
The descriptions of the travel locations made me want to travel there myself. The unique people they met along the way. The conversations they had and the banter. Such fun.
I loved the relationship between Zandra and Blake. Starting out as l ...more

By Katie November 21, 2019

3.5 stars, but rounding up because rounding down always feels so shitty.

I thought this was a short & sweet novel. I read it in one evening. It didn't hit all the things I prefer in my romance novels, but I don't take stars away for certain personal preferences (like how much I hated the name Zandra, ...more

By Linda October 31, 2019

I enjoyed this contemporary romance. Zandra is an engaging woman who finally broke free of parental obligations to take a chance and tackle life on her own terms - as a traveling photographer. Blake travels a lot with the military, but longs for the day he can finally reach for his dreams and build ...more

Seduced by a Soldier is a fun quick read. There is plenty of adventure and banter, that you never get bored.

But when ...more

By Lori November 19, 2019

What a fun adventure this book was! I loved the sarcastic and then fun banter these two had together, which only comes from knowing someone a very long time. Blake was so protective, supportive and encouraging with Zandra. It was very endearing and she loved it, to have someone other than her brothe ...more

By Amber - TBR Book Blog November 21, 2019

I love a good sibling’s friend/sibling romance. And this is that. Plus I love me a good soldier and Blake is definitely a good soldier and one who needs to heal. I think Zandra (love her name) has her own healing, but perhaps in a different way than Blake.

Zandra is finally doing what she wants and ...more

This is the story of how they realise what they feel for one another and how they grow as they travel together. Blake is on leave from the military he is ...more

By Linda November 19, 2019

This author’s impressive research and feelings from the beginning drew me in by being able to picture Zandra and then Blake. Her well written descriptions of each character in the book allows you to feel as if you know them. I found I could picture the “chocolatier”, see the chocolate flowing, glass ...more

4 stars

I enjoyed this book. It's not an author I'm that familiar with, but now I'll look out for her books. Zandra and Blake's romance starts quite slowly. A lot of the book is about Zandra becoming more comfortable with her talent and more independant. Blake is keen to be protective of both Zandra ...more

By Bookfiend88 November 20, 2019

This was a cute, sweet read about a soldier who falls for his best friend's little sister after years of knowing each other. Their love felt very genuine and there was great chemistry and banter between them. However, I felt the story went off in unnecessary tangents at times and the ending was way ...more

A fun and entertaining read, with an excellent plot and likeable cast of characters.
I liked the engrossing plot, the well written cast of characters and the setting.
It's the first book I read by this author and won't surely be the last.
Many thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for this ...more

By Diane January 21, 2020

I finished this book a while ago but felt that it warrants a review & rating here. This book was not a cliche setup as some might expect from the title. I found it to be an entertaining book that had some very enjoyable characters. The way that they moved through the story and scenarios together wer ...more

By Melinda December 28, 2019
