I LIKED THIS BOOK ALOT. IT COULD JUST HAVE EASILY BEEN A STAND ALONE BOOK. HOWEVER, SHE GIVES YOU ENOUGH OF THE BACK STORY ON OTHER CHARACTERS TO KEEP YOU UP TO DATE.
KARMONDY IS A GREAT GUY AND YOU DON'T GET ALOT OF INSIGHT ON HIM IN THE OTHER STORIES. YOU'LL GET A GLIMPSE NOW AND THEN SAME WITH SAVANNAH. THE STORY WITHIN A STORY WITH ROSE IS ALSO AWESOME
ROSE'S STORY WOULD HAVE MADE A GREAT NOVELLA.
Kenny and Savannah will grab you and not let go until the last page. She looks like a blonde bombshell, is tough as a SEAL and won't give up. Kenny is bowled over by her beauty, but rushes to judgment (again). Is Savannah a spoiled rich girl or the real thing? This is one of my FAVORITE TS Inc. couples - Must READ!!!
I actually enjoyed this book very much. However, the narrator was not so enjoyable. I always prefer when a narrator uses a different dialect or inflection in their voice to differentiate characters, sometimes I admit they sound a little silly, but it makes it easier to follow conversations and to follow the story in general. I had trouble figuring out who was saying what at times during this story, in some cases I never figured it out. In short I thought the adventure, characters & romance was fun and enjoyable, I just wish it had been read by someone else.
This is my second Suzanne Brockmann book. She reminds me of Linda Howard and Sandra Brown, although she is a better suspense writer. The plot is as important as the love stories. She is so very talented and creates a world of characters who are as interesting as the main two.
Through masterfully interweaving storylines, the novel flowed with great passion and intensity. The various subplots were incredibly fascinated. The stories are filled with big ideas, balancing duty to one's country or honor with true love and family. These are books you will get lost in.
The narrator is very good as well.
As a fan of older Linda Howard books, I am intrigued with Brockman, and pleased to have found a new author. (well, new to me) Brockman writes a better plot, though not maybe not steamy as Howard.
Although, this book is perfectly fine stand alone. I know these characters pop up in many of the other books, and it's considered a series. Ive found no issues starting with this book, which I believe is book 3. Looking forward to more of her novels.
Recommended, highly. (but remember this is an older book, pre-911)
Yes definitely. The combination of this author and this narrator is absolutely outstanding.
Of course I love this storyline.
What would've made this Story better? Oh, the fact that broken words,dropped off syllables, garbled sentences in the recording might've made it better.
I thought the recording was just my iPhone so I listened to it on my Kindle that I listen to it on my computer but there was definitely a recording problem with this book.
I wanted to like this book but I really couldn't get behind the narration. Norma Lana was just unexciting and flat as a narrator, and the accents were so bad they were distracting. I kept trying to listen to this book but I would keep getting bored and turning it off within a few minutes. I can't really say whether the writing wasn't keeping me interested or the narration was just so bad that it turned me away from the book, but either way, I don't recommend spending the credits on this book.
I've listened to the 3 previous books in the troubleshooters series (The Unsung Hero, The Defiant Hero and Over The Edge) and loved every second of all 3 of those audio books. In all 3 the narration was a true performance and enhanced the story.
I purchased the 4th book on the series today and after trying to get through the first hour of the story I wish I could say the same about this book. The other books flowed and I was so engrossed in the story that I just lost track of time. I feel bad for saying it but the acting in this narration doesn't flow - you know when you're watching a TV show or movie and you can tell when the actors are acting? That's how the narration of this book felt to me.
