    I love this series... when I saw this audiobook I bought it immediately!! I still would have bought it even if I had read the reviews because I strongly believe in making my own judgment calls....but, they were right.
    I made it through 2 1/2 hours w/ 7+ to go, but it's just too unbearable. These stories were just too short to really add anything to the storyline. Plus, unless you are a major fan & have read every single book in this series you simply won't get it.
    And I have read & listened to every book, some of them numerous times and though I know the characters, this book doesn't go anywhere.
    I love this author & the narrators, but you can easily skip this one.
    On the other hand, this audiobook is very cheap, so it would be worth it.
    Even though this particular audiobook is not my cup of tea, I don't regret getting it.
    I just wish I knew that it was a compilation of lots & lots of short stories and these blurbs that are more like a stream of thoughts put onto paper.
    Anyways, best for you to be the judge. 😉

    Please, don't judge this series by this audiobook... I got hooked on this series (in paperback form) about a year ago and let me tell ya, this audiobook was like nails on a chalkboard for me. The narrator talks soooo sloooowwwwly that it actually caused me to speed it up to
    1 1/2X...not that it made it much better.
    I love this series... I own them all and have reread them all couple of times so I know it it not the author's fault~ I did notice that the rest of the series has a different narrator so maybe those are better.
    Honestly, I finally just shut this audiobook off and chose another one to listen to. I'm sooo glad I got this on the Book 1 of a series sale and only paid $5 bucks or I would have been so bummed!!
    I soooo encourage everyone to always listen to the sample before purchasing audiobooks... I didn't this time and soooo regret it!

    Would you listen to Tom Clancy Presents: Act of Valor again? Why?

    Wow~ I would have to say yes, but this is one very intense story...at least for me it was. Yes, I am a girl...yeah, girls are a little more emotional, but even manly men are allowed to get teary eyed over the conclusion of this one.


    What did you like best about this story?

    What can I say, it's an intriguing & compeling story. The writing & narraration is so well done that you feel like you are right there living it or that you are at least being told the story by someone who actually experienced a real situation. It doesn't really have that


    Which character – as performed by Steven Weber – was your favorite?

    The narration was so amazing, but I have to say... holy moly, there is one scene with the Dr. when she(he) says


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I had planned to, but I just couldn't do it....it was just too intense. I had to take 2 seperate breaks which is very unlike me to be honest. I usually like to just plow through from start to finish.... however, it is now 4:30 a.m. because once I got back into it I couldn't turn it off because it got so intense. Then, I had to write this review while it was still fresh in my thoughts....not that I will be forgetting this one any time soon.


    Any additional comments?

    This story is about the ugly up-close and personal side of terrorism. But it is truely about bravery, patriotism, honor, loyalty, and the ultimate sacrifice.
    I highly recommend this audiobook~
    Happy listening~

    Lethally sexy undercover agent Stefan Prakenskii knows a thousand ways to kill a man-and twice as many ways to pleasure a woman. So he's looking forward to his new mission: arrive in the coastal town of Sea Haven and insinuate himself in the life of Judith Henderson, an ethereal beauty with ties to the crime lord he's determined to trap...

    Nope, first one~. Awesome performance!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes~
