Three billionaires, an emerald lake, and a lifetime’s worth of happy endings.
John Fletcher is used to living his life on the edge. He’s an ex-Navy SEAL and the owner of one of the most successful security companies in the world. He knows what he wants and he knows how to get it. When his daughter asks for the one thing he can’t give her, it breaks his heart.
Rachel McReedy isn’t impressed with John Fletcher’s money, fast cars or jet-setting lifestyle. What she cares about is Bella, his eight-year-old daughter. She might not have had the type of life Bella has, but she knows what it’s like to be left on her own. Rachel is determined to show John the error of his ways, but she isn’t prepared for what she’s about to find.
The day John meets Rachel, life as he knew it comes to an abrupt end. She stirs something deep inside of him, creates havoc in his orderly world, and makes him question what’s really important. He knows Rachel holds the key to his daughter’s happiness, but will she willingly hold the key to his heart?

Worldbuilding: This story takes place in Bozeman, Montana. It has a small town feel but doesn’t get too in depth with the townspeople.
Characters: The main characters in this novel are John Fletcher and Rachel McReedy. John’s top priority is his daughter’s safety. But being the head of a security firm can mean putting her and others he works with in danger. After spending years traveling for his work, John and his eight-year-old daughter, finally decide to put some roots down in his home town of Montana. Little does he know, his daughter, Bella, has plans of her own. Ms. Rachel McReedy seems the perfect teacher to tutor Bella before school starts but John gets more than he bargained for. As Rachel gets more and more comfortable in their lives, John realizes what he has been missing. Can John convince Rachel that she is much more than a tutor to him? Or will the demons from his past prove too hard to overcome?
Plot: This story is mainly about the romance between John and Rachel with a side of suspense due to his job.
Writing: This novel is told in third person points of view of John and Rachel. It is the first novel in the Emerald Lake Billionaire series and is linked to The Bridesmaids Club series as well as the Montana Brides series.
Curb Appeal: I think this cover is so cute! It completely captures the main characters and the picturesque setting! The blurb gives a really good rundown of the situation and the background of the characters.
Ultimately: This was a good start to a new series! It dragged on in a few spots a little longer than necessary, in my opinion, and it took a little away from the story for me. All in all, if you are in the mood for a hero who wants to open up his heart to love and a heroine who wants to help a little girl then come check out Sealed With A Kiss!!!!
I couldn't have said that better myself! Reading is huge passion of mine. And I'm glad that books not only expand my world view but that they bring the wonderful people who created them into my life. You can always find me with a book and an eclectic mix of music on. I am a HEA junkie extraordinaire! I am a Beta reader, who loves helping authors bring their characters to life. As well as an avid romance reader (every and anything ;D) turned aspiring author.
