An ex-Navy SEAL agrees to play fake lover for the Maid of Honor at a destination wedding only to discover that what happens on a Caribbean Island can sometimes follow you home.

Nicholas Falcone, aka Nikko, aka Falcon, is five months out from active SEAL duty, putting his pre-service accounting degree to use while going to law school at night. He'd love to take a vacation between semesters, but every buck is earmarked for his education. When a fellow accountant approaches him about his sister needing an escort for a destination wedding, Nikko jumps at the idea. With the wedding families footing the bill, what does he have to lose?

Surgeon Dr. Jennifer Pierce is still stinging from a broken engagement. Going to a destination wedding at the Sand Castle Resort in the Caribbean would be great if only her ex-fiancé and his new wife weren't also attending. Her options are to find a date or not go, but not going isn't really an option. That means letting her brother set her up with a guy from his accounting office...Heaven forbid. When did accountants start looking like this?

Nikko Falcone and Jennifer Pierce meet when her brother asks him if he would go on a destination wedding trip with her so she wouldn't have to show up alone. Especially with her ex-fiance' and his new wife there as well. Neither one expected anything else but a, hopefully, fun vacation trip while trying to pretend to be dating. But they never planned for the chemistry that they each had for each other or how much 1 week could change their lives. I absolutely loved this book! It is on the shorter side but the story is so engrossing that you won't want it to end. Nikko and Jen are absolutely hot together, but not only that, they are good for each other. They help each other learn to let go and have fun while still taking care of their responsibilities. Nikko is sweet and hot but definitely can be alpha and protective when necessary. Jen tends to be controlling but learns to let go and enjoy the things that life can offer. And putting them together? They are perfect for each other! A great read!!

I thoroughly enjoyed this novella and it was a great way to spend a cold winter afternoon! A destination wedding as the maid of honor and your ex-fiance who cheated on you and then married his pregnant secretary will be there, oh no! that does not sound like something I would want to do and neither did Jennifer but her twin brother comes through for her with a blind date. The only question is, can she trust her brother? With the ringing of her doorbell her question is answered and after spending a little time with Nicholas, Nikko, the ex-SEAL who works in his office, she is ready to at least give him a chance with a date the next evening. After that, and spending a few more days together, they are all in for the week long destination wedding. Could they keep it platonic? Would they want to? This was such fun and all the extra players/characters at the wedding just made it even more fun. Definitely one I will recommend! **Received this ARC for review**

Cynthia D'Alba tells stories that always keeps the reader engaged. "Hot Seal, Cold Beer" is no exception. Nicholas and Jennifer's story is such fun with so many great moments, that I read it straight through. Without giving anything away, their chemistry and love story gives readers that aha moment that romance lovers always look for in their books. Recommend, I would like to thank Michelle for gifting me "Hot Seal, Cold Beer". My opinion is my own. This is mine. 5 easy Stars!

Really enjoyed the chemistry between Nikko and Jen. Jen's friends were fun too. Only thing I didn't like was Jen's thinking that Nikko was poor, uneducated, and lacked social grace. She seems to never consider that you need to be somewhat intelligent to be SEAL. Otherwise a good book. Will read more by this author. Mjw

ARC for honest review with no compensation What happens when the beautiful, talented surgeon, Dr. Jennifer Pierce has been jilted, needs a date for a friend’s destination wedding in one of the most romantic islands, then asks her twin brother for help finding a last minute date? To the rescue comes, Nicholas “Nikko” Falcone ex Navy Seal, CPA and pre law student, determined to help Jennifer any way he can but what happens next is nothing that either one ever expects... Another amazing story by Cynthia D’Alba and a great addition to this series! Can’t wait for the next book!!!!

I really enjoyed this story by Cynthia D'Alba! I will definitely be looking forward to reading more books by her. Dr. Jennifer Pierce needed a date for a destination wedding and was willing to take her brother's suggestion and ask Nicholas Falcone. All she knew about him was that he worked with her brother and had been a Navy SEAL. Nicholas Falcone, Nikko to all of his friends and family realized that he and Jennifer were very different and didn't have much in common, but none of that mattered. He hoped he could make this uncomfortable situation more bearable and that he could get Jennifer to relax and enjoy herself. Soon they were both letting their guards down and opening up their hearts to each other and the possibility of love. I was given an ARC from the author/publisher. All conclusions are mine and mine alone.

4.5 Stars! Author Cynthia D'Alba, and the relationship of convenience trope is a match made in heaven. I just had to request Hot SEAL, Cold Beer, after reading the book blurb and admiring the cover. This is a terrific romance and I devoured it from cover to cover in no time at all. This book may be enjoyed as a standalone. Dr. Jennifer Pierce is both a surgeon and an emergency room physician. Her career keeps her very busy, and so she has very little time for other activities. Her ex-fiance is a real scum, so naturally she is dreading the destination wedding they will both be attending. Since she does not want to go alone, her twin brother finds her a date for the long weekend of festivities. Nicolas Falcone, or Nicco to his close friends, is an ex-SEAL, CPA, and student of law. After a long tax season, he welcomes a free vacation with a beautiful woman. Lots of sunshine, adventure, and close friends help evolve their fake relationship into something more. I truly enjoyed this slightly emotional and entertaining read. To begin with, Ms. D'Alba opens the story with some very engaging chapters, which sets the tone to this mostly upbeat romance. Jennifer and Nikko are really good together, and each new thing they discover about each other helps create a future that neither of them could imagine. Their sexy times are hot, both in and out of the bedroom. The secondary characters are charming all on their own, and their personalities compliment the present happenings. Ms. Alba's writing style is crisp, clear, and full of enthusiasm. Don't pass on the opportunity to read Hot Seal, Cold Beer. Complimentary copy provided.

Have you ever wanted someone that you think is sooooo wrong for you? What about not showing emotions as you have been hurt bad in the past? How about thinking the other person knows what you are thinking? This is a cute and funny story about life and how everything happens for a reason. How communication is important. Also how mistakes in communication happen. Cheated on, Dumped and now single Dr. Jennifer Pierce has an up and coming wedding that she is the Maid of Honor for. Her ex-fiancé and his new wife (the woman he cheated on her with and she is pregnant) will also be there as he is the best man. It is a destination wedding in the Caribbean and she really doesn’t want to go by herself. The problem she doesn’t have anyone to take so she turns to her brother for help. She can’t believe she has no other options. Nicholas Falcone, aka Nikko works with Jennifer’s brother at an accounting firm. Her brother thinks he should work for her date to the wedding. Nicholas is a retired SEAL trying to figure out what he wants to do next in his life. He is going to night school and would love an all expense vacation. So, her brother approaches Nikko. Dr. Jennifer Pierce meets Nikko and he agrees to be her date. She is not sure this will work but she needs someone to be there with her. He is on board. Now feelings start to emerge, can this be real or will it all end when they get home? Have fun and enjoy the beach! * Free copy of book provided by author for an honest review.

Dr. Jennifer Pierce needs a date for the destination wedding of her best friend. No way will she show up as the jilted fiancé while her ex brings his now pregnant secretary/wife. Her brother sets her up with one of his colleagues, Nicholas “Nikko” Falcone. Ex-Navy Seal now a CPA and law student. Nicholas needs a vacation. An all expenses paid vacation with a beautiful woman, who could say no? Jennifer has always been awkward around men it was so much easier to just be engaged even if you didn’t have strong feelings for him. She makes a deal with Nicholas spend the week as her fake boyfriend no strings attached then go their separate ways. Nicholas adds in to be believed there has to be touching and kissing, you know gotta make it look real. Jennifer is nothing like she seems. Fun loving, kind hearted and smart she’s one of the most beautiful woman Nikko has ever seen. He never thought he’d find someone like her. Nikko is sexy off the charts hot and so charming Jennifer forgets the mess with her ex and begins to live in the moment. One touch leads to another and some panty melts kisses, sex that will set the pages on fire and I’d suggest having a fan nearby. Miscommunication and feelings left unsaid just might be the end to the best thing that’s happened to either of them. Another good story by Ms. D’Alba, I highly recommend this book and I can’t wait for the next book to come.

I have read a couple of other books in this series, and it’s the best one to date. The books are about recently retired Navy SEALs and their adventures in Paradise. This one belongs to Nikko Falcone. Robert, his friend and co-worker in an accounting firm, asks for Nikko to help by being his sister’s date for a weeklong celebration of a destination wedding. A wedding that will be attended by her ex and his new bride. Dr Jennifer Pierce is the sister, and from the moment they meet the chemistry is evident. After a week of adventure and fun things go downhill. Will they be able to find their HEA or will misunderstandings doom the relationship? A sweet, fun, and touching story not to be missed. I was entrusted this copy. The opinions expressed are solely my own.

What do you get the woman that needs to be in control? Jennifer Pierce had everything under control until when she wasn't looking her love life fell apart. Desperation has her looking to her brother for help. Help comes in the form of tall, dark and tempting. Nikko needs a break and when a buddy asks for a favor, he happily agrees. A free vacation, a sexy plus one and some hot fun in the sun sounds perfect. Neither counted on a one time favor, becoming an irresistible hookup. Hot Seal, Cold Beer keeps the summer heat fresh in our mind as we head off into winter. D'Alba provides the perfect getaway to chase away the blues.
