Band of Bachelors: Lucas by Sharon Hamilton….Blog Tour & Review



SharonHamilton_Lucas2_800 copy


Special Operator Lucas Shipley thought his living arrangement was temporary, since getting booted from the house by his wife. He sleeps on a couch in the apartment with four other divorced Navy SEALs, thinking he’ll get the call to come home any day. He ignores the not-so-helpful advice his buddies are giving him about marriage, women and romance. Until he gets served with divorce papers.

Realtor Marcy Gelland is hired by Lucas’ soon-to-be ex-wife to liquidate all their real estate holdings and help her orchestrate a speedy departure from Lucas’ life. Based on what the hot-headed SEAL wife has told her, Marcy understands Lucas deserves every ounce of pain coming his way.

But when Marcy and Lucas are left alone together in the remote Northern California woods, they ignite a personal bonfire that threatens to burn down the whole forest. Marcy is forced to see she is wrong about Lucas.

Amidst the backdrop of hardened bachelor SEALs with their unsolicited, anti-long-term relationship advice, and a terrorist training camp operating nearby, Lucas must do what he’s always done: be the hero and save the day. But will it be in time to save Marcy?

My Review:

Lucas is the first work in author Sharon Hamilton’s Bad of Bachelors Seal Brotherhood Series and admittedly the first of Ms. Hamilton’s work that I’ve read. With emotion, heat, action, and suspense, I really enjoyed this book and will definitely be looking forward to more from these SEALs!

Marcy and Lucas meet under less than heartwarming circumstances when she is the agent in charge of selling his marital home after his wife files for divorce.  Despite all the reasons they shouldn’t get together in any type of romantic way, the attraction they feel for one another turns out to be one they can’t ignore.  But it will turn out that breaking some rules and falling hard and fast won’t be the biggest problem they have to worry about when a terrorist cell winds up right here in our own backyard and Marcy ends up in their crosshairs….and their grasp.

What I loved most about this book was the author’s betrayal of the men’s men this group of guys truly is.  They’re gritty, raunchy at times, and total bachelors.  I think it’s probably the most accurate portrayal of a bunch of dudes that I’ve read.  They like their danger high, sex raw, and women strong but understanding.  Lucas was a great character to read as well as Marcy.  I also loved the suspense aspect and thought how the author pulled the whole plot together was done really well.  My only slight complaint was how soon Lucas and Marcy exchanged “I love you’s”.  I’m all for insta-lust and even at times insta-love, but this could have waited at least a few pages.  Other than that, this book was great and kept me glued to the pages from start to finish!

Thank you, Ms. Hamilton, for a wonderful and exciting read!  I can’t wait for more of these band of bachelors.

Her Golden Vampires of Tuscany are not like any vamps you’ve read before, since they don’t have to go to ground, and can walk around in the full light of the sun.

  1. Thank you, Jillian! Loved this review. Appreciate your time and careful attention, and how you really “got” the story. Yes, my couples always get together quick sometimes, but one of my girlfriends reminded me that it’s art imitating life. I’ve always been the same way. Thanks again!

    • Thank you, Sharon! These guys are the best and I can’t wait to read more of them! I can only imagine the kind of gals able to win their hearts and take the out of bachelorhood!
