I enjoy the story very much. it caught my attention right from the first paragraph. Then explained it an filled in the characters personal stories, as the story moved along. then with a twist you didn't see coming, then another right after...along the way with some humorous smiles and laughter from the authors audience. the only thing wrong with the story was over abundance of explanation of feelings an thoughts and the surroundings places the characters were in.
All characters were likable, even some bad guys. Great departure from all the rich, arrogant, dominating man/naive, poor, submissive woman stories. Lots of action, in both sexual and story progression. Keeps your attention wanting more with no annoying eye rolling, what the ...? moments. Although I couldn't notice much difference between voices of each character, her voice was pleasant.
Keeping with the strong, smart, capable women characters to match your devoted, lovable military men, this series could last.
I Liked it! I read the reviews and was thoughtful as I was listening to the book, wondering if I was going to get to the a point of not liking it. It never came. Please, please don't go off the reviews. Use them yes, but don't base your entire opinion on them. This book was actually not bad, and trust me I would not lie if a book sucks it sucks. This is the first book in a series so you have to try it and see if YOU like it. I did, and as for it not having an ending, it ended just fine. So I'm saying it was a good read, Trish McCallan was a new author for me. I tried it because it was on sale and I am so glad I did. Lots of times this is how I find those great authors that I never would have tried such as; Maya Banks, Lara Adrian, Nalini Sighn JD Robb..to name a few, they are AWESOME.
The only thing I will say negative Beth was a little annoying when it came to the ESP stuff with Zane, that's the only reason is gave it a 4.
Other than that the plot was clear and the "HOT scenes" was fine (hey there wasn't a whole lot of it... but I was OK with it, I didn't miss it).
I love Angela Dawe the narrator, that was another reason I bought the book. So try it see if YOU like it.
HAPPY READING! I've already started on book 2!
Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
I liked the book okay but I didn't love it. There is lots of action which usually worked, but the Seals where constantly distracted by unimportant things which was distracting. The romance was an instant soul mate attraction. I don't normally care one way or another on how much time it takes but I felt the romance was a little off putting. The one thing that bugged me about this book was that the main characters would start to make out at the most inappropriate of times. Don't get me wrong I usually like make out sessions in books. It was the timing and places that was off. Plus Beth was always going to put her foot down, but as soon as she saw Zane pound his chest it was "ohh me Jane you Tarzan kiss me stupid". I probably won't continue on with this series because I have so many other books to read that may be my next obsession, this one for sure isn't it. The narrator does an okay job, I have listened to her before and I do like her but she is a little on the monotone side. I recommend Suzanne Brockmann's Troubleshooter series for awesome Seal/Romance stories.
Yes - it was great - hard to stop listening.
Liked the Seal team members, enjoyed the psychic powers.
Angela Dawe did a great job. I wish the second book Forged in Ash had been narrated by her also.
Looking forward to the rest of the series - wish I didn't have to wait!
Very interesting and it will keep your interest till the end..I would recommend the book
Won't tell you, would give away story!
Would like to see more story line develop. I want the 3rd book now!
Hot romance/Sci Fi we're so lucky to have Audible to feed our book addictions. I love walking my precious dog Sydney & listening to my books
This was my first Trish McCallan book and i just Loved It :) This lady can write and i am defiantly snapping up the next in this series straight away !!
Mr Sexy, Lt Commander Zane Winters, has a history of seeing visions of events to come. Though they are never clear and detailed, they are always accurate. So when he gets flashes of danger on the airline him and his SEAL team 7 buddies are about to board in 90 minutes, they all know to take him seriously. But just as they are putting a plan into action, a shiver of awareness hits Zane square on. The woman meant for him (aka ‘mine, mine, mine) has just walked into the flight lounge area. What he doesn't know is that Beth is there to find him too...
Beth has been having dreams over the last 24 hours, and much of it is coming true. A warehouse fire…etc. really happened, which means the terrorist who plan to take down a flight from Seattle to Hawaii and divert it to South America will likely come true too. In her dream she sees Zane and his two officers, so out of desperation she goes to the airport in hopes these men are real and can help...
What unfolds is a fast action cat-and-mouse chase, plenty of thrill and bloody action, and finally a nice hot steamy closet scene with Zane and Beth. The timeline is a quick one day, but given the context of the story it felt believable. We meet many interesting characters, and have to guess who is the bad guy. Typical, yes, but still fun. There are PNR elements in the story, psychic visions etc that made the story that little more gritty and with the awesome Narration by Angela Dawe it made it even more believable... :)
Tell us about yourself!
I absolutely loved all of it! I'm not going to give away any spoilers but I will say that this Seal Team is not your average team, one of the members, Zane to be exact has a certain ability which brings a very different twist to an action packed, romantic as heck story. It's action all the way which kept me riveted and Zane is lovely and makes a perfect match for Beth as you will see. In fact I'm very partial to the other guys too especially Marcus and can't wait to finish his story "FORGED IN ASH" which I started today and am already so hooked!
Although Angela did a very good, I feel that a male voice would have complemented this book a bit more, but Trish's ability to take you into a world of terrorism, murder and kidnapping with such finesse, skillfully brings this book to life.
Yes, when "Russ" has Beth and Zane is close on their heels but has to be very careful or it will cost Beth her life or maybe even his own. The way this scene is executed made me hold my breath and think "no, please be careful, for you and for her.... no!!!"
Also, when Marcus was "hit" OMG I couldn't believe it, I was very upset. Not giving anymore spoilers.
This book is so worth a credit or just paying for it. I can't see how anyone could be disappointed in any way. It's jam packed with everything you could possibly want: Romance, Action, Intreague, Clever Twists and so much more.
Good: I managed to bear it out til two-thirds of the way in. (compared to some of the recent romances I've read, I got much further on this one before turning it off)
Bad: It became increasingly unbearable the more I persisted.
It has all the right ingredients - hot sexy SEAL, intelligent attractive woman, intrigue and psychic abilities. But as another reviewer said, I just couldn't FEEL it. It left me cold. The right words seemed to be there, but they just didn't knit together into that warm feeling.
Part of the reason is the odd juxtaposition of macho military action, violence and swearing, next to the adolescent-girl/adolescent-boy posturing. More than halfway into the book hero & heroine get some hot sex happening between them, and right afterwards the heroine has a screaming fit about the guy forgetting to use a condom! Another time the heroine makes a big fuss about sleeping arrangements - being put into the same bedroom because they're assumed to be engaged.
The weight given to different situations seemed unbalanced and unconvincing, not to mention grating. I found that the narrator did the different male and female voices well, but the main voice narrating for the heroine just grated, like someone reading the news with the emphasised lilt at the end of each sentence.
