Along the lines of Vince Flynn's Mitch Rapp series - the main character is willing to break the rules to do what will best serve his country and take care of his friends
Fast paced, high intensity, heart pounding excitement! I love a good story about people in the military; stories of honor, courage and commitment. Dalton Fury’s Black Site definitely is that. The author is detailed in his descriptions of characters and situations. Dalton’s background in the military and Special Forces is evident as you read through his novel and can picture the decisions that are running through the mind of his leading man.
The reader is a good one for this – he has the strong steady voice to carry both the intensity of this story and the strength of character of Kolt Rainer. The author Dalton Fury is former Delta Force troop commander who lead the search for Bin Laden and author of Kill Bin Laden.
The characters and intensity of the volatile world of the Middle East keep your heart pounding as the minutes pass in this novel. Much like Vince Flynn’s Mitch Rapp series – the reader becomes invested in the hero, holding your breath until you discover how the story unfolds. I could easily imagine following Colt for years as I have many other series based in the Special Forces, Black Ops, and CIA saving the world genre. I would recommend anyone who likes a strong military hero, flaws and all, to pick up this book and give it a read.
When Claire chooses to stay with Jamie. Discovering the power of love
Personally I love Claire. There are a lot of great characters but Claire has something in her that gets you to keep coming back - then of course there is Jamie!
Even time couldn't keep their love apart!
There is a slow start to this due to the set up required for the series but stick it out! I've reread the whole series several times now and am anxiously awaiting the TV series on Stars as well as the upcoming new release.
Grief, Acceptance, Love
It really does remind you to live not for someday but grab onto love when it is available
Yes, the narrator did a great job.
Randall - a ghost as a dominant was intriguing and done beautifully
Dom of the Dead is a beautifully sweet tale with interesting twists and turns of grief, living life to the fullest and accepting your own desires. This is a story of being too afraid to reach for what you really want until it is too late. We see Carson, the female protagonist, going through the early stages of grief when her best friend Randall dies in a motorcycle accident before she had the courage to reach out for more than their “friend zone” relationship.
Randall is a dominant man who has dreamed of his best friend for years but did not want to “taint” Carson and their relationship. Throwing a fantasy one night stand style dating service into the mix is an interesting way to throw the two characters together with Randall as a ghost. The end is a beautiful twist of fate – reminding you to reach out for life and hold on with all your strength while you can, after all tomorrow is never promised.
The reader is a good choice. You can believe she is Carson with the intonations and strength of words of a woman struggling through grief. The author and reader combination do a beautiful job of bringing this twisting story together.
Maybe… Reader, yes. Author, maybe
Not if I had to pay for it.
There are only two characters… both? Or fill out the characters more
Snuff novella. The reader is a good one with the breathy tones expected of this kind of story – even the slight accent to assist. It certainly has its hot parts – it is labeled as BDSM erotica however and this is a misnomer there is no dominance and submission in any real way, there isn’t even any real playtime other than a lot of sex; even a bit of kinky sex.
Would I recommend this story? Well, the characters are decent; the setting skimmed over but filled out could be nice – overall as a short read – sure if the reader knew what they were getting into. Would I spend an Audible credit on this? No. Though the reader is a good one and I might look to see what else she has done the story was short and had little depth. Did I come to care about the characters? Well, lightly that could have become interesting if the story had been further filled out but they weren’t well developed enough.
If this author/reader combination came up in the freebie section I might give it another chance if I was looking for pure smut but otherwise I wouldn’t give the author a second glance. This novella is essentially what my mother thinks romance novels are – all sex, little character development and no depth. There are a lot better stories to hold my attention and fill my time. Think porn on paper and there is this novel.
Yes, EL James wrote a better than average romance novel, nothing more.
My issues with this series is more that it portrays anyone interested in the BDSM lifestyle as damaged, which is far from true. Insulting in fact. There is no real attention to community, communication, little to safety, etc. As a romance novel it is better than average, as a novel around a BDSM couple as here it failed miserably
This story takes a story verging on kink and BDSM but takes it out of the tawdry and reminds the audience that just because "my kink is not your kink" doesn't make it bad.
If only this place were real, we'd all wish we lived there/
Love this author and series. I went searching for the audio version after reading the paperbacks years ago
Absolutely! This is the beginning of a great series. It isn't my favorite in the series but definitely worth another listen as I go through the series again.
Jess because you can't help but feel for her as she tries to live up to her family.
I love George Guidall as a reader. I love this series but him as Mr Q really brings the stories to life.
I could listen to George Guidall read a textbook and I love this series so any chance for him as Mr Q is a positive in my book.
I would wholeheartedly recommend this series to a friend, this book... well I liked the book but would recommend 10 Big Ones over this one any day.
Put more relationship stuff between Stephanie and Ranger. That really brings the story to life.
Yes, definitely worth listening for a series follower
Gone with the Wind could only be described as romantic, one-sided, and irreverant
The love story between Rhett and Scarlett has always been a go to story for my romantic heart. I do love however Scarlett's attitude about getting through whatever life sends her way.
Decent reader, not one of my favorites but a decent reader
My favorite part of the book is the end when Scarlett realizes the people she dismissed were those that held her together and gave her strength through the years.
I really wish Audible would publish the audio version of Scarlett - Alexandra Ripley's sequel to the story. I loved it more than the original.
