    "Loved it!"

    This is a fantastic book. I didn't think the O'Malley series could be beat! Love Dee Henderson's suspense and her strong characters! Couldn't put my iPod down!!

    I can find a book to love in any genre -- a beautifully written classic, an interesting mystery or sci-fi, a trashy romance. Bring it!

    "Lots of mush in the middle"

    STORY - True Devotion is an inspirational romance entwined with Navy SEAL operations and a mystery. I don't consider myself a particular fan of inspirational books, but this is my second Dee Henderson story. (The first was The Negotiator, and I loved it.) This book was very good, but I did become tired of hearing Joe and Kelly say how much they loved each other and discussing whether or not they should be having a relationship. Sometimes I just wanted them to hit the sack and get it over with.

    Other than being too chick-litty in places, the book was very good. The religous aspect was not overdone, the mystery was interesting, and I loved listening to the SEALs plan their operations and then execute them.

    NARRATOR - The narrator does a good job. He doesn't distinguish female voices well, but it didn't detract from the story.

    OVERALL - Good book, especially if you like romantic heroes!

    "Romance Thriller"

    If you haven't taken the time to read one of Dee Henderson's books yet then pick this one up. It is an intense drama of new beginnings, the growth of relationships, military life and terrorism. I love all of Dee's works but one of my favorite male characters is Joe "Bear" Baker.
    If you aren't a bear fanatic before you will be after reading or listening to this book.

    This is a great combination of drama, action and light romance, all from a God honoring perspective.

    "another great book by Dee Henderson"

    really enjoyed the story line. A little too much detail on intimate moments so even though there is adventure, don't plan on listening with your children or husband around. I'm thankful for a thirty seconds forward button.

    "Awesome story!"

    Get lots of Kleenex and prepare for a wonderful romance and a great suspense. I just love Tom Stechschulte as the narrator he is great.

    "Great book, bad narrator."

    Great story. I couldn't stop listening, despite the bad narrator. The voice he uses for the main male charater, Bear, is SO slow that it's annoying. Also, anytime ANY charater says "sure", the narrator drawls out "shore". Ok, I buy one charater having an accent, but not ALL of them. Despite that, the story was enthralling.
