    1. 4 Stars! Another insightful installment in this eye-opening series!In this novella the author deals with the issue of veteran suicides, a heartbreaking all too real issue that is plaguing our military service members. Sometimes the cry for help comes too late. The story begins at the funeral of a fallen comrade and let me tell you, it broke my heart. Former lovers, Gabe and Julie, find themselves back together under the worst of circumstances and the picture the author paints is gut-wrenching. I [...]

    2. Not my favorite. Not my least favorite either. I just don't love their history. Plus I am just not sure the hero is really ready for a relationship. I think Julie is carrying it.

    3. Great addition to the series, I loved Gabe and Julie. This (to short) novella delves into the reality of dealing with service members mental illness, suicide, and the aftermath. Very emotional. I wish the story went a bit longer giving us a glimpse of Gabe and Julie's transition into the Lost and Found family fold.

    4. Wow. J.M.'s military stories are always very emotional but the subject matter she tackled in this one and how she had her main characters deal with it was – I just cant think of the right word – but it makes you FEEL!!Trying to describe this book in a normal review would give away a lot spoilers. I'm just going to say this was a heartbreaking reunion story with shocking revelations. Its short, and I always feel the endings to these are a bit abrupt but it still packed a huge emotional punch. [...]

    5. I'm very torn with this one. With how this one opened I hated that a service person felt the only way out was to kill himself. It's a very real, big problem out there today. But as the story went on and we learn a bit more about Butter I found myself not liking him and even thinking of him as the "bad guy". I feel like he betrayed his friend with his actions, that he betrayed his country and those that depended on him in their missions by keeping secrets of where his head was at. I thought it wa [...]

    6. Lovely little (very) short story. I'm a sucker for second chance love stories. As always, Madden brings the trials and tribulations of our military warriors to life, and what happens when a mental or physical issue brings an untimely end to their time in the military.It is not necessary to have read any of the "Lost and Found" series to enjoy this read. In fact, it's the perfect story to introduce the reader to this wonderful, heartwarming series about the lives of 'wounded warriors' after their [...]

    7. I really enjoyed this tale of old loves reconnecting after the death of a friend. And it was a bittersweet reunion because the friend who'd died was the source of the original conflict. Ms. Madden's storytelling is such a pleasure to read and she makes the characters really come alive with all their flaws and foibles. This was a great addition to her Lost & Found series.

    8. REALLY wanted to like this story because j.m. madden writes some great military romances, getting 5 stars from me a bunch of times, but sorry, this one had nothing going for it, in my opinion :( i still hope more people check out this author's works, she's not one you wanna miss out on.

    9. Let me start off by saying I love this series. I couldn't wait to read the next book. The plot was everything I expected from the author. HOWEVER . . . and this is a biggie . . . I can't believe she cut it off like she did. There was really no conclusion to the story in my opinion. The characters deserved a longer book. The readers deserved to know more about what happened to this couple and in a satisfying manner. I feel cheated! There could have been more about Butter' s suicide, more particul [...]

    10. Generally speaking, I am not a fan of second chance at love stories. I particularly dislike when the block to the relationship is gone, but the party who left doesn't bother to look the other one up despite harboring a secret love and wish to get back together. There's a random meeting and the leaver is suddenly desperate to get back together with their former love.This book is not like that.This is a story about three people. Reclaiming the Seal starts with the hero, Gabe, and heroine, Julie, m [...]

    11. I love this series and this is a great addition. This novella touches on a real issue some of our veterans are dealing with. Out of a tragedy came the opportunity for a second chance at love.

    12. 3.5-4 stars A quick read that touched on a lot of emotional issues, suicide being one. I love this series but feel like this short tried to cover too big ground in too few words. I'm talking life changing events. The jumps in time frame and the way some of the story was told in flashbacks made me feel disconnected from what should have been a hell of an emotional story. Something JM is more than capable of writing.

    13. A very clunky beginning and badly paced. The beginning of the book largely consisted of attempts to shoehorn in connections to the Lost and Found series and my eyes quickly glazed over. The couple actually get back together at about 50% and the rest is Gabe dealing with an injury he sustains.I also wasn't convinced by the portrayal of Butter's mental health issues.

    14. Another great story in this awesome series, but I was surprised to find many typos.

    15. 3.5 stars. Enjoyable and sweet story of ex-lovers who come together to mourn the loss of a friend.

    16. I just love this series, and this was a great little addition! I am a sucker for second chance romances, and this one definitely packs a punch. This story has a tragic start (Ms. Madden sheds light on the realities of life in the military) but it brings a couple back together after a painful separation. I really enjoyed their romance, and it felt different than your average love story. 5 stars!

    17. Intense subject- what the people left behind after someone they love commit suicide. Fairly nice balance of plot & romanceNote: Downside (to me)-As with all the books in this series, there *are* explicit scenes. I skip them.

    18. J.M. Madden gets me every time with one of her stories. I'm ashamed that I fell upon this Kindle World novella accidentally in my pre-purchases and had forgotten to read it. Great story once again.

    19. Reclaiming the SEALThroughout reading this book Ed Sheeran's song Photograph kept playing though my head. After you read this story, you'll understand why. it's a bittersweet reunion of two former lovers coming together over the suicide of a close friend. As Julie and Gabe come to grips with what they had when they had been together and what and who have driven them apart, they realize that they never truly knew "Butter". It's only after they make a handful of surprise discoveries while going th [...]

    20. When the person you knew for so long ends up being an armor made to hide from those who can change their life.If you are a follower of J.M. Madden books you know some stories or aspects she just does not touch on or HAVE NOT touched on. Well this book has hit another level of goosebumps reality. Gabe and Julie story has it's HEA but the journey and the truths reveal in getting there will leave you feeling some type of way.Reclaiming the SEAL, felt as if it was someone's story. A rehashing on wha [...]

    21. A SEAL will forever and always be a SEAL I love when characters from previous stories show up in a new book because it gives the reader time to catch up with them. Max receives a text from another SEAL Team member that is very cryptic, but he doesn't recognize the phone number. So he manages to get a hold of the commander of DEVGRU. Unfortunately, Butter, has committed suicide and Max and Lacey fly to Virginia to attend the funeral. However, their friends, Julie and Gabe, the news is very sad. O [...]

    22. One of the Kindle Worlds series of HOT Seals crossovers. This series intersects with Cat Johnson's Hot SEAL's. Characters from the earlier series will show up in the Kindle Worlds series. This one is sad, due to a tragedy that befalls one of Jon Rudnick's former team. If you've followed Johnson, you'll know that Jon was the first of his team to leave the Navy and begin a new company.There is some intersection of the Lost and Found Investigative characters in order to bring the crossover in. Madd [...]

    23. Suicide amongst our heroes is more common than anyone realizes. Madden does a superb job of handling Butter's issues and demise. What happens afterwards to family and friends is just as tragic. Julie and Gabe were a couple but Butter was the third wheel, he just saw them as more than they were. As a short novella she packs it full of memories, some good and some bad. Tons of emotions in a tiny book but definitely worth a read, you will be hooked.

    24. Gabe and Julie's story broke my heart a bit. The death of their friend Butter has brought them back together and they work on rebuilding their relationship. And then Gabe suffers a bad injury that brings them even closer. I am really looking forward to hearing more about them in future books. I really did enjoy this book!

    25. 5 StarsI loved this story. The love story itself was simplistic, as the MCs had already fallen in love prior to the start of the story. Butter's circumstances absolutely broke my heart. I couldn't help but feel for him, and for his friends who didn't know. The ending felt abrupt, but still satisfying.

    26. Reclaiming the SEAL by J.M. Madden is a great read. Julie and Gabe's story is a quick read but loaded with lovable characters, action and drama. I loved Reclaiming the SEAL and look forward to reading more from J.M. Madden in the future. Reclaiming the SEAL is book 4.6 in the Lost and Found series but can be read as a stand alone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

    28. Great bookThis was a really good book. I did not like the way it started out, but unfortunately that is the way our military men and women are learning t to deal with. This was well-written and a nice story of love that lasts through everything.

    29. DisappointedNot up to her usual standard. Gable is a jerk and Julie forgives him way too easily. Truly it reads like a very very short intro to other books.
