As the hostilities increase, the warriors and the women who love them are swept into the struggle, their personal and professional lives twisting and intertwining as they race against time — and the fortunes of war.

I love all of Griffin Books and have read this one many times but really enjoy it being read to me.i
Craig Lowell. Just the type of snob I would want to be.
All of them and love them all
No. Many differnet settings
Although the reader does an admirable job, his general lack of famialirity with military jargon takes away some of the impact...For instance, referring to a full colonel in the Army as a Zero to Six as opposed to an Oh Six (in reference to their pay grade O-6, an Officer, Sixth pay grade) is bad enough, but when pronouncing abbreviations like the Tube Launched Optically Tracked Wire Guided missile as Tee Oh Double You rather than TOW, it's a little frustrating for military veterans with say more than a month in service.

Aside from the editors not consulting any military veterans for pronunciation of military terms and times, this series is a great story and fun to read over and over.
not this series
I can't believe I have gone through 8 of these books.I listen as background while I am working landscaping so I am not looking for anything too deep but I have reached my limit on this series.This is like harlequin for guys, the writing is poor, formulaic and characters shallow.Every book is the same, rich soldiers, virginal girls to be deflowered, stereotypes, even I could write these now that the basic, shallow characters and poor dialog. every sentence ending with "he said" then "he said" like we can't figure out who is talking.You don't realize how bad these are until you listen to a well written story.If you want to hear a well written, well read war story, try Unbroken by Laura Hildebrand read by Edward Hermann.
