Review: Seth (The Barringer Brothers #3) by Tess Oliver

Seth is a part of The Barringer Brothers series, but can be read as a standalone. 

After too many deep dives as an underwater welder, Seth Barringer needs to stay on land for awhile. He and a friend rent a California beach house. Seth plans to spend the summer months pursuing his favorite hobby— women. But when he meets Noelle Coltrane, his plans are obliterated. Seth Barringer has finally met his forever girl . . . but can he break through the steel barrier Noelle has constructed around her heart?

Noelle Coltrane lost her husband, high school sweetheart and soul mate, Hayden Coltrane, two years ago when his helicopter was shot down in Afghanistan. There has never been anyone else but Hayden. Now Seth Barringer has walked into her life wreaking havoc on her emotions and stirring up feelings she thought long gone. She finds herself struggling between her sense of loyalty to the man she once loved and her attraction Seth.

Overall Rating:  4.5 Rockin’ ★★★★☆

Here comes another of those hot Barringer brothers and he is a real chick magnet that doesn’t even have to try!  This is the story of the third Barringer brother from Tess Oliver’s Barringer Brothers series.  If you fell in love with the other two brothers, you will not want to miss Seth even though this book can be read as a standalone. 

I loved the way Ms. Oliver paints a picture of a man that is realizing maybe there is more to life than parties and one night stands. Seth has watched his two brothers settle down and find their HEO and it is putting questions in his head about his future.  Women have always been easy for him, and easy for him to forget.  So what is the story with the stunning woman in the wetsuit rinsing off in front of him?  Why can’t he stop staring and what’s with his voice?  The effect she is having on him is like nothing he has ever felt before. He is dumbstruck!

Do you ever get a second chance at love?  Noelle lost the love of her life and her heart when her husband was killed.  The only way she made it day to day was by keeping herself so busy that there was no room for anything or anyone else.  Her heart died with her husband or did it?  When Seth Barringer arrives on the scene, she finds it hard to keep him at arms-length. First impressions are often lasting and Noelle’s impression of Seth is that he is a lady’s man without any conscience.  Can he change her mind?  Could she be the one that he is waiting for? Is she the right girl to make him hang up his wandering shoes?

Hero:  Seth Barringer 4.5 stars
Heroine: Noelle Coltrane 4.5 stars
Steam: 4.5 stars 
Plot: 4.5 stars 
Cliffhanger: No

Would I recommend this book: Yes! Sexy, hot man that wants to up close and personal with a smart, sexy woman would be a perfect add for this book.  Looks like another bad boy is about to hit the dust!

Would I recommend this author: Yes! Ms. Oliver writes the way women want to read.  Her characters are sexy, one of a kind and just what the doctor ordered for a good romantic read.  I have read all of her books and wait anxiously for the release of the next one to see where Ms. Oliver will take me! This author is at the top of my must read author list.
