Adrenaline junkie and Navy SEAL Alex Kowicki is one of four bachelor SEALs trying to navigate his successful military career while achieving his goals as a first-class connoisseur of beautiful women. He isn't ready to jump back into anything but his free falls, HALO drops or his missions overseas. He trusts his buddies to fix him up with another blind date that won't be as dangerous as his last ones.
But Sydney Robinson has other plans. A beach volleyball player who can spike better than most men, and block with explosive speed to defend her side of the net, she executes a series of events to include stalking the handsome SEAL all the way to Sonoma County wine country, and delivering his carcass to her bed. Having achieved her first goal, she sets about to become a pro AVP player.
When duty calls and Alex is pulled back to Iraq to complete a failed mission, neither expects to find that the real danger is lurking very much close to home. But this fight might cost one of them their lives.

No, there are too many other books to listen to. This was a good story and worth the listen.
I liked Fredo and Cooper. they were great secondary characters.
I liked them all. He does a great job with his vocalization.
I got this book via audiobook boom.
This story was a lot of fun to listen to. Alex is really not that much from most men that I know. He is somewhat reckless in his personal life, making connections but not really connecting past the physical but Sydney came out of left field!
Where I would assume that it is the guy that had issues with relationships it was refreshing to find it twisted!
As always the narration is a treat to the ears. J.D. Hart is excellent!
The author provided me with a complimentary copy of this audiobook with no expectation of a review. I loved it. I couldn't put it down and finished it in one sitting. The chemistry between the characters was hot, hot, hot!
Say something about yourself!
I have listened to a lot of books told by J.D Hart & this does not disappoint!
I started off by reading Sharon Hamilton SEAL Brotherhood and then Sharon introduced me to audiobooks when I won a giveaway sponsored by her. I had a choice between paperbook, ebook or audio book, I thought I would try my first audio book & dang I was hooked especially with J.D. Hart whispering in my ear. J.D Hart is an excellent storyteller he just draws you into the book & makes all the characters come to life in any story he is telling. It could be a boring book & he would have you eager just to listen, but I have never read a Sharon Hamilton book I didn't enjoy! Alex has a lot of hot steamy sex, actions and those sexy SEAL team 3 that you are always looking forward in a Sharon Hamilton books. Once again Sharon Hamilton has brought another enjoyable book to audio!!
I am an avid reader and listener of all types of books. I am always willing to try any book or audiobook.
Omg what a great listen.
The love story between Navy Seal Alex and Sydney a beach volleyball player, is HOT HOT HOT
The back story with the winery is a great one that will keep these books going strong.
Sharon Hamilton is a fantastic writer with J.D.HART as the narrator made listening to this book enjoyable.
I really think it's a great idea for you to buy this book or better yet the complete series.
I was gifted this audio ARC from the author for a honest and unbiased review.
I am just girl who loves my husband, dogs, shopping online and books!
Who does not want to think of dating a hot sexy Seal? I for one do!
This book is chalked full of hot sexy encounters. I would love to date Alex for just a week ro two :)
this book is full of sex, sex, and more hot sex. plus some Seal action too. I would NOT recommend listening to this without your head phones on! lol

This book is about Alex and Sydney, and they have a lot in common.
The characters are decent, the pace is fast, and I felt like a fly on the wall
viewing the scenes up close.
Overall, an Entertaining book and I look forward to the rest of the series.
J.D. Hart did well with the narration.

Sharon Hamilton is an author whom I've read and listened to several of her books. JD Hart has done another fantastic job with the narration. This is a standalone book and part of a series. I like that the characters from other stories are mentioned in this book, but not center stage. Initially I did not like the character Alex with his love 'em and leave 'em attitude before he met Sydney. This book is full of action and sex, so don't listen to it on speakers with small children around. I was voluntarily provided with this review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, and/or publisher.
I have listened to several of Sharon Hamilton's other stories and have enjoyed them all. This story is no different. The story draws you in immediately, keeps your full attention and has you wanting to listen from start to finish in one sitting. The combination of this author and narrator always makes for an enjoyable listen.
Even though characters from her other series appear in this story and it is part of a series it can be read as a standalone book. Love the crossover of characters from previous books.
Definitely keep your earbuds in for this one. There are some pretty hot & steamy activities happening. There is much more going on in this book than just a romance story. Action, intrigue, romance, mystery, suspense and plenty of steamy scenes all woven into an entertaining, engaging and enjoyable story.
Military Alpha bad boy. Alex was up front about who he was and what kind of lifestyle he leads from the start. He has taken on the role of the typical alpha bad boy love'em and leave'em persona. For a time he tried to settle down, that didn't work out. So he is living his persona to the fullest. He's about to go on a blind date with a woman like no other he has ever met. One that will change his life.
Sydney wasn't a likable character to me in the beginning. Her actions come across as crazy and stalkerish. Her "turn on" and actions in the theater didn't make her anymore likable. At one point she's looking around to see if her neighbors are watching and thinking that they have been witness to her "Parade her trophies up and down the front walkway", then she says she doesn't sleep around. A bit of a flip-flop there. Then she "follows" him up north. I was starting to wonder if this was going to turn into a fatal attraction type of story at one point. She does eventually grow on you a little at a time, but for me it took until about the halfway mark of the book for her to really become likable.
Trying not to spoil the story for anyone. But, it was a catch 22 situation she found herself in eventually. On the one hand I like that she didn't try and use this to stay connected to him, but on the other hand I don't believe that type of information should kept a secret. He deserved the truth. Like I said a catch 22 situation.
J.D. Hart did a great job with the narration as usual. Nice voice. Easy to listen to for long periods of time. Clearly spoken with a smooth even pace. Good character voices. Even his female character voices are good. He was able to make the characters and the story come to life. Very enjoyable.

Most likely not. I was hoping for a story with more depth but for me, it just wasn't there. It just moved to quickly with way too many side plots going on.
Not at all. I love a good military story but for me, the only thing military about this was his job. It was just a fact about him.
No follow up book needed. I am going to assume that he will be mentioned in other books in the series as to what he is doing now.
I received the audible in exchange for an honest review.
