This book is a charming fantasy and the fact that it doesn't have an ounce of verisimilitude doesn't detract from its appeal.
That the hero and the heroine wind up at the end reunited and eager to get married "for ever after".
I thought Ashley Adlon did a good job performing all the characters in the story.
Fairy tales come true.
Since I had so much fun listening to Prince Joe, I am sure that I will listen soon to another book by Suzanne Brockmann.
Say something about yourself!
This book seemed like it should be good but for some reason it just didn't click for me. I think part of it was the narration and accents used. It may also have been that while the premise was a bit different, the 'problems' faced by the couple were far too cliche. Lack of communication, easy (realistic) changes to wording, etc would have gotten them smoothly through their personal issues and cut about 30 minutes off the book's length. I also found it somewhat lacking in the 'sex scene' department. I definitely wouldn't consider this a 'steamy' romance. It did have a good ending and I don't think it was a complete waste of time and money. I'm not sure I'll buy any other books from the series though.
ELLE aka PlantCrone of the Great Pacific Northwest. I enjoy almost every genre-S/F, Action, Biographies and Histories & Romance
Prince Joe, The first book in her "Tall, Dark and Dangerous" Navy Seal series is a good solid Brockman read.
Some sex, some humor, some tough guys fighting and a terrorist or two is Brockmans solid plot..but they aren't boring in any way.
I downloaded quite a few of these that I hadn't read in a recent audible sale and for a quick listen on a day sitting by the pool it can't be beat.
Fun, funny with a touch of sex....I enjoy her typical NavySeal books a lot. Check it out!
I really enjoyed this story -- a fun blend of military and romance novel. It is a fun, easy listen, but it really kept my attention. I rooted for the main characters to work out their differences and to fall in love. Looking forward to hearing the other stories in this series!
Been there, done that. I am just foolish enough to believe that if I enjoyed it, so would everyone else.
Can't pinpoint any one thing. With the possible exception of the way she presents the military hero. Because they are
To answer this question, I would have had to read this book, and I didn't. But, I will say I enjoyed her reading of it.
Yes, when Joe fooled them all.
Just a perfect love story and would highly recommend. It reads well - no fuss, no fluff. Loved the narrator.
Kept my attention through the entire book. Plus it is a quick listen. I don't feel like I should be almost finished by the time the end rolls around. Some books are way too long and you feel like you have been listening for hours on end, just trying to get to a good part. This book/series has been keeping my attention throughout.
I would call them a modern day version of Johanna Lindsey's Malory/Anderson series. Only instead of a powerful family of blood relatives, you have a powerful group of men who would consider each their brother. It has loyalty between the seals, a strong female lead, comedy, romance, misunderstandings and much more. The stories for both series' are entertaining and enjoyable from start to finish.
Good diversity in the characters voices. Animation and believability in the difference between man and woman. Character distinction is consistent.
Yes. I laughed and cried. Especially toward the end of the book. I needed a box of tissues!
Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
I have listened to all the Troubleshooter series and have enjoyed them immensely so I figured the Tall, Dark and Dangerous series would be next. I realize that this was the beginning of Suzanne’s writing career so there may be more rough edges, but she did a wonderful job in creating a simple romance story. The characters did have some prejudices that were a little annoying but I enjoyed the story and will finish listening to the remaining series. The narrater was pretty good, but her accents were not well done and a bit distracting.
very predictable you knew she was gonna fall in love with him, could have been more suspensfull and humorous
