Roman's Gift by S.H. Pratt
Roman D’Angelo is a survivor.
He thrived through foster care. He excelled in the Navy. He survived his last mission as a Navy Seal. But can his gift for thriving and surviving withstand temptation?
A single question. A daring song and dance. An auburn-haired beauty with Marilyn Monroe curves and captivating eyes.
Temptation’s name is Juliette.
Will he fall for temptation?
Will he survive the fall?
To taking a chance…
And not having it suck.
To taking a chance that temptation is the greatest gift of all.

ROMAN'S GIFT is told completely from Roman's perspective. It's been a long time since I've read an M/F book from the male's point of view. And let me tell you - it worked! I want my own Roman, pretty please!!!
This is a smoothly-paced, hot-to-trot story that not only shows you the spark between the main characters but shows you a snippet into their work lives too. Now, as this was told by Roman, some of the things on Juliette's side don't have the same impact. I'll be honest, she would have had to work a whole lot harder to get back in my good books, but I guess I'm just mean that way. As for Roman's PTSD, it was hard reading, I'll not deny that, but it was written so well! Roman has his found family and I'll admit to a tear in my eye when he realised it.
All in all, this was a great read that I thoroughly enjoyed and have no hesitation in recommending. Get your copy!
