    For Lieutenant Teri Howe, one of the best helicopter pilots in the naval reserves, nothing stands in the way of her passion for flying--until a past mistake surfaces, jeopardizing everything she's worked for. Senior Chief Stan Wolchonok has made a career of tackling difficult challenges so it's no surprise when he comes to Teri's aid, knowing that his personal code of honor--and perhaps his heart--will be at risk.

    As commander of the nation's most elite FBI counterterrorism unit, agent Max Bhagat leads by hard-driving example: pushing himself to the limit and beyond, taking no excuses, and putting absolutely nothing ahead of his work. That includes his deep feelings for Gina Vitagliano, the woman who won his admiration and his heart with her courage under fire. But then the shocking news reaches him.

    There are eight words Meg Moore has never been able to forget: The United States refuses to negotiate with terrorists. But what was merely a chilling warning when she worked as a translator in a European embassy now spells out a potential death sentence for her daughter and grandmother, who have been kidnapped by a lethal group called the Extremists. Meg has to act - and quickly.

    After a near-fatal head injury, Navy SEAL lieutenant Tom Paoletti catches a terrifying glimpse of an international terrorist in his New England hometown. When he calls for help, the Navy dismisses the danger as injury-induced imaginings. In a desperate effort to prevent disaster, Tom creates his own makeshift counterterrorist team, assembling his most loyal officers, two elderly war veterans, a couple of misfit teenagers, and Dr. Kelly Ashton - the sweet girl next door who has grown into a remarkable woman.

    Would you listen to The Unsung Hero again? Why?

    Id read it again, probably not listen to it though. A great compelling story by Brockmann. Loved all the action (in and out of bed); the narrator is a bit frustrating when doing woman POV & voices, but once you get over that its awesome!

    When Katie appears in the small North Carolina town of Southport, her sudden arrival raises questions about her past. Beautiful yet self-effacing, Katie seems determined to avoid forming personal ties until a series of events draws her into two reluctant relationships: one with Alex, a widowed store owner with a kind heart and two young children; and another with her plainspoken single neighbor, Jo. Despite her reservations, Katie begins to let down her guard, putting down roots in the close-knit community.

    In "Undead Sublet" by Molly Harper, executive chef Tess Maitland is banned from her five-star kitchen in Chicago to recover from "exhaustion". Choosing a random rental house in Half-Moon Hollow to spend time in, she's unaware that the house comes with a strange man. Even though Sam Masden's ex-wife has rented the house out from under him, the divorce settlement allows him access to it for another ninety days. With Tess unable to go anywhere else, and Sam unwilling, a war of epic proportions is declared - and romantic sparks and heavy pots fly.

    What disappointed you about Fifty Shades of Grey?

    From the opening paragraph i knew it was going to be bad, but i had no idea how bad. i got the book because everyone was talking about it and i wanted to know what all the hype was about the new "Mommy Po$n". The story lacked any sort of plot flow and character definition. The main character was whiny and annoyingly self-deprecating, and i swear if i hear about her "inner goddess" one more time i'll loose it.
    There's no way i'd ever read or listen to the other two books, even though there's no way they could be any more sorely written than this one.


    Would you ever listen to anything by E. L. James again?

    No.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator wasn't the issues, the story itself was.


    What character would you cut from Fifty Shades of Grey?

    Anna
