I bought the book on the $4.95 sale so I cannot complain, it is mildly entertaining and softens my commute to work, I am about 80% thru the audiobook. The murder investigation does not seem realistically told, I do not think this is an area of expertise of the author, many of the characters are Navy Seals but here again the author does not have much inner knowledge of the seals either. The book is filled with child care and romance scenarios which seem to be the authors knowledge base, I have not learned anything from this book but it is worth the money I paid for it, as I am waiting for my next credits to come.
The narration was good.
What a dissapointment. I could barely pay attention to the story and the narration was so,
Yes. I love books that contain relationships between people from different races/backgrounds. Brockmann's series is definitely entertaining. My favorite pairing is Alyssa and Sam, but there are some other good ones throughout as well. Although this title wasn't my favorite in the series (I was greatly amused by the love/hate banter between Alyssa and Sam in past works), Brockmann writes an entertaining story with a good balance of sexy romance and suspenseful adventure.
Not at the 'edge of my seat', but I didn't really expect that going into the series in the first place. She does seem to know a good deal about the military life and it was an exciting listen...
Deborah Hazlett for female narration for sure! As for the male...oh, I don't know....anyone other than the one who did this one?! I felt that the emotions that the narrators were trying to convey were terribly forced and I didn't care for the lack of 'smoothness' in their delivery..sorry.
Just had an extreme reaction to the narration...akin to nails on a chalkboard...again, sorry.
I read heterosexual romance novels only. I love my gay friends, but do not care to have the social and politically charged subject woven into my "mindless, NON-political" relaxation romance readings. I do, however like the narrator combination.
I will make sure to read Ms. Brockmann's reader reviews before downloading more books in the series.
I do appreciate when Audible lists the sexual preferences in their reviews. Honestly would like to see some type of "sexual content" rating from sweet romance, steamy to explicit. And please list when there is gay content for those of us who allow our young people to listen to what we would think is an appropriate romance novel.
I love Suzanne Brockmann's work and, as usual, this was an excellent, action packed book. The characters are folks I've already met and I was fully satisfied by the story. Having said that, I really really really didn't like the male reader. His personal accent was distracting to me and there was no distinction between characters. It just didn't work for me and took away from my enjoyment of the book. I wish I'd read this one instead of listening to it. The female reader was good and I much preferred the sections she read. I really didn't understand the point of two readers. Oh well. Again, a really good book, but not a great audio version in my opinion.
Not so much course language and sex.
Mostly the story line.
The use of such vile language and sex scenes. Seem like when ever the story slowed they threw in some sexual exploit.
Tone those aspect of the book way down
disappointment in the whole purchase
can I get a refund of my credit?
One of the most convoluted story lines I have ever experienced. Characters include a gay FBI agent married to a male movie star, an ex FBI agent married to an ex navy seal, and a gay active duty navy seal. To confuse the issue the ex FBI agent is called to New York to provide private security to a newly elected state represenative being stalked by a serial killer. As this takes place while she and her husband have in tow their six month old child. It was the most dreadful story that has ever been concocted.
Earlier stories are better without the liberal preaching!! I like to read (listen to) romantic suspense for escapism! WILL SOMEONE PLEASE TELL MS. BROCKMANN THAT SHE IS NOT GOING TO MAKE ANYONE HAVE AN APIFINY! PLEASE TELL HER TO GET BACK TO WRITING ROMANTIC SUSPENSE AND STOP SPOUTING SERMONS TO HER READERS!!!
I would give it a zero if possible, After 8 years as a audible listener this is the first book I deleted from my personal libary. I thought I had listened to some poor books, but this set the bar so low I can't imagine it being passed. Tune in Air American if you can find it in sted of listening to this book, at least there is a chance of being entertained.
