I loved this series, but this book was my absolute favorite. After listening to the first three, I grew to appreciate James Swindler, but not as much as I did in this book. It captured my attention in the beginning, but commanded my attention from about 2 1/2 hours in until the very end. It brought tears to my eyes on several occasions and it made me laugh and scowl. I don't remember another love story bringing me this much emotion in a long time. This is a series that I will listen to again and again!
The writing, of course is just as fabulous. You really KNOW these characters. They become your life. I think the myriad of emotions is what made this book even better than the first. I laughed to the point of tears (The Hulk!) and I also cried!
Ummm...I would have to say the going away party was probably tops. Christmas morning was pretty great too!
I think she was consistent the character voices and she didn't make the men sound feminine. I think she did a really good job throughout!
I think I had every emotion with this book. I did laugh, a LOT and I did cry. I think I may have even scowled a time or two!
Another great read. Kiera has a lot of growing up to do after her disasterous amount of mistakes in Thoughtless. While I still wanted to throttle her at times, I did really have an opportunity to watch her mature. She really did want to be a better person and I think she is succeeding!
At the top. The writing is phenominal. The story is unbelievable. The subject was heartbreakingly good. I am not one for cheating and deception, but when this story is complete, it's not accepted (by me) but understood.
Denny - he's unbelievably adorable
Kellan - he's unbelievably sexy and broken
Jenny - she's unbelievably sweet and caring
Anna - she's unbelievably clueless and fun
Griffin - he's...well he's Griffin and this story would NOT be complete without him.
Kiera - was not my favorite because she made SO MANY MISTAKES. However, this book wouldn't be a book without her. Love her or hate her, she is a part of this series and she deserves to be there!
Kellan in the rain and after...
It made me angry, it made me physically ill (I couldn't eat). It made me cry. After finishing it, I couldn't think about anything but the book. It is really an emotional roller coaster, and it's not much of a heartwarming read, but it is an experience. And believe me, you want to get through this book to enjoy the next two!
I do NOT condone cheating. I do NOT think the characters handled their situation well. I DO think that people make mistakes in their lives. Sometimes they are huge and sometimes they are small. I think the author used this reasoning when writing this book and also allowed the characters to learn from the monstrous mistakes that they all made.
Sure...I would listen simply for the enjoyment of completing the Tall Dark and Dangerous series.
Not on edge. It was pretty obvious, but I still enjoyed it. After 10 other books of a similar nature, this one did not keep me guessing.
Perhaps...if the leading lady was meant to be older. I enjoyed Gayle, but she gave the impression of a woman who was older, wiser and more sophisticated than the leading ladies of the SEALs series. Most of them were to be in the 20s to early 30s. I believe that Britt was to be mid-thirties, but she came off sounding like a 40-something, while Wes sounded to be in his late 20s. It made the love story a little bit unreal.
Perhaps, although I wasn't able to.
Again, I enjoyed the finality of the series. This wasn't one of my favorites, but it was still good closure!
Yes...I enjoyed the storyline. Bobby and Wes of the Alpha Squad have ALWAYS been each other's rock. This story pushes their boundaries and tests their friendship. It also brings a whole new side of Bobby Taylor that we haven't heard about in the other books. A new side of Wes too.
The rest of the Tall Dark and Dangerous series by Brockmann. It's good...it's predictable but enjoyable.
She definitely has enthusiasm. I didn't care for her accent because it reminded me of an 80's surfer girl, which made the cast sound extremely immature in some of the parts. Bobby is supposed to be relatively quiet and her boisterous voice didn't bring that to the table. However, her boisterous voice and attitude definitely made up in the action department. She was not lacking when it came to emotion.
Sometimes opposites do attract!
Probably not. The story seemed to be a good one, but the narration was lacking....excitement. No...variety. She tried her hardest. You could tell she was trying to get the excitement of the story out there, but she sounded like she was reading to a bunch of kindergarten kids! Not something you want in book like this.
she could have put a little more passion in her performance. She tried to get excitement and anger across, but she just didn't deliver.
toward the top with the other SEAL books. I am glad I found this series. It is enjoyable with some action/suspense and of course, a predictable love story entwined.
When they were relieving Daisy's days...can't really go into detail. It was just really heartwarming and heartbreaking.
I don't think I did. I can't remember her from another book. However, I thought she was ok. I have heard better, but she did well.
In comparison to other Brockmann books, no.
I loved the humor and teasing among the Alpha Squad. The lightheartedness between H and PJ. This book made me laugh pretty hard and that was refreshing since the last couple books tended to make me cry.
My favorite character has always been and still is Capt. Joe Cat. I just love his honest, upfront personality. He may not need to, but he definitely holds Alpha Squad together. He's serious when he needs to be, and hysterical when he wants to be! However, I really like Harvard after this book as well.
She was good! I don't know that she brought anything to the experience, because I have a pretty vivid imagination when reading. But, none the less, she was good!
Laugh...more than any of the others.
Toward the top. It was a way better listen than some out there, but not the absolute best.
His bond with his neice. I LOVE how he adapted to her. It wasn't easy, but he did it and he came out better for doing it!
In the cabin when Tash couldn't sleep because it was too quiet and Frisco brought Mia into her bedroom and made them both listen to the sounds of nature. I also LOVED when they were shopping for Tasha's furniture and they sat on the pink princess couch that she wanted SO badly. Which made me laugh very hard at the scene when all his team members arrive at his place later in the book after his place got trashed!
Again, probably the part in the cabin. It just reminded me of comfort and contentment.
I really enjoyed the book. The narrator was good. The story was good. The characters had some depth.
Yes. It is still a good book. Compared to the rest of the Tall Dark and Dangerous series, it isn't the best, but it is still good.
I enjoyed a moment in the second half of the book where Jones really let his emotion show. He did it in front of the rest of his SEAL team, so it made it even more emotional! I guess I like to know of a big brute of guy letting his guard down!
She did best as Melody, the main character.
Overall, good book. Definitely worth the listen.
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!
