    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.

    "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.

    "enjoyable but unrealistic"

    While I can say the book was good to get past some boring time and kept me occupied there was one thing always in the back of my mind while listening, and please bear in mind I comment from a military background. There is abolutley no way a civilian a foreign civilian even with his high power job is going to know the identities and opperations of Navy Seals. Understand one thing these guys are the best of the best. They themselves have so much security to those outside their command that it would be impossible for a civilian to just simply know who the team is and what they do in their opps. It would have been one thing if the author wrote how this guy paid some serious cash to hack info or bribe some high level people to learn the info he had of the Seals, but the author just simply made it broad information as though it was daily gossip of Seal Opps and members. Uh huh ya right...

    Last comment about this book, its supposed to be a romance genre not a religious genre. Throughout the entire book there were 2 kisses thats it, there was over 3 hours dedicated to religion. note to author: less religion and more romance when your writing romance genre, you didn't even have a single love seen.

    He has a rich voice. Quite easy and enjoyable listening.

    "Awesome and Inspiring!"
    What did you love best about True Devotion?

    I loved how this book ties crisis with faith. Whenever I get discouraged in life I listen to this.
    It reminds me there are other more pressing matters in the world. With these events, there are individuals that risk everything daily so we can live a free life. I need books like this to keep perspective.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved everything: the story, the characters and the message. I have
    listened to this series many times when I am in need of inspiration and
    Motivation. I have recommended this series to many and they get hooked😄


    What about Tom Stechschulte’s performance did you like?

    Some people think his voice is unusual. I feel his voice suits the
    Rugged characters that he portrays. These characters are Navy Seals. In my mind, there is an inner toughness that allows these men to do the impossible on a daily basis. He conveys this with his intonation and cadence. Two thumbs up!!


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

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    Loved this story so much I own all the Dee Henderson stories.
    I can't wait for her new story Full Disclosure in Oct 2012!!!
