    Story
    "Love me a Seal!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Cruisin' for a SEAL to be better than the print version?

    Mark is Hot, sexy, you can tell you would want to be Sophia. She won his heart not just his lust. He loves her. Story is wonderful and the sex is very nice! The narrating adds extra sexy to it. Love this. I have the book but the Audio is better!!!


    What other book might you compare Cruisin' for a SEAL to and why?

    I don't know, this is different,


    What does J. D. Hart bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Breathes life into it.


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

    oh yes for sure!


    Any additional comments?

    Love love love Sharon Hamilton Audiobooks!

    Story
    "Highly romantic, thrilling adventure"
    Where does Cruisin' for a SEAL rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I would say Cruisin is one of the best ive listened to it was so exciting, action packed and very romantic


    What other book might you compare Cruisin' for a SEAL to and why?

    All the audio books by Sharon Hamilton and narrated by JD Hart. They are all of the highest quality, exciting to listen to and so very romantic with characters so believable you think you know them personally and the narration so good as to be apart of the book


    Have you listened to any of J. D. Hart’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have listened to all J D Hart's narration of both Sharon Hamilton SEALs and her Golden Vampires. His range and professionalism are of the highest quaility and he is such a gifted story teller from the believable accents to the range of emotion he brings to every story


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    There were so many i enjoyed from the action, to the tender love scenes to the unique banter between the SEALs. When Mark and Sophia speak Italian to each other to the vivid detail of being on board a cruise ship.


    Any additional comments?

    These wonderful audio books by Sharon Hamilton and JD Hart's just get better every time. I thoroughly enjoy listening to them. They are such a joy to listen to whether im travelling or just relaxing i cant wait for the next one

    "The best yet"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would definitely recommend this audiobook to everybody and I am because I read the book and found it very enjoyable, but adding the narrator's voice it came alive.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked the whole story, action, comedy, suspense are mixed beautifully with passionate moments.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I can't pick one :D


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I think it was towards the end when Mark and Tyler were transporting the bomb away from the cruise ship, they were ready to selflessly sacrifice themselves to save so many and that brings to the forefront their courage and willingness to defend what they believed in, protect the innocent.


    Any additional comments?

    I've listened to all the books narrated by JD Hart and the versatility of his voice amazes me every time, but this one I think is the best yet. All the accents are perfectly rendered, the mood of the characters come across clearly, the various characters of different gender and nationalities are well defined. Thoroughly enjoyed it!

    Story
    ""Do cobras climb...""

    Again, my second time around with this audiobook. I loved Marc in SEAL THE DEAL and was so glad to see Sharon didn’t make me wait to find out what happened to this amazing warrior.

    This book is about Mark and Sophia’s journey to happy ever after. A lot of action in this one and a lot of interaction of the other seals and their wives. Finally we get some happiness for Fredo but I want give any spoilers you’ll have to find out for yourself but it is steamy sweet!

    There are many different characters in this one and JD does another amazing job in bringing them all to life. I don’t think any other narrator will ever do for Sharon’s books. JD does such a good job I sometimes think that Sharon has him in mind when she writes. They are perfectly harmonised.

    An incredibly strong love unexpected love turns up for Marc and he so deserves it. I love this guy, he’s so tender, passionate and hot, who wouldn’t love a guy like that. This series just continues to be amazing.

    I have to mention a sentence COOP says which is so funny but to appreciate it you’ll have to read/listen to it in context; COOP: “Do cobras climb trees?” lol

    There were a couple of problems with the recording jumping in Chapter 27 at the following minutes:-
    4:18-4:22; 4:54-4:56; 14:48-14:52; and 17:56-18:03 but aside from that IT WAS WONDERFUL!

    "Cruise Ships and Pirates!"

    I have listened to all of the books in this series and have enjoyed them. I like Sharon Hamilton's Seal's!

    There is never a dull moment when these guys are around! I am a huge action and romance junkie, so I love this series.

    J. D. Hart's narration has never disappointed in this series including this book.

    Although this is not my favorite in the series, I did enjoy the character updates.

    "Take a Cruise with SEAL Team 3"
    Any additional comments?

    I will admit, I had a hard time with this book at first. I did not like Sophia at all! I felt she was all wrong for Mark. I also felt as if he was cheating on Sophie's memory and jumped in way too soon with Sophia. Also, the names Sophia and Sophie were too close to me and made me feel as if he was using one for the other.I would have much preferred had Sophie from Nick's book to have survived her cancer and been Marks HEA. I think Mark fell too hard and too fast for Sophia and it just didn't seem believable (esp. after he stressed his feelings of loss of Sophie)It wasn't until about half way through that I started to warm up to Sophia. I can not say that I fell in love with her. It was more of a case of tolerate her. Now Mark on the other hand, I loved his character in the previous book and loved him here as well, but again, his falling so hard and fast just did not seem believable. He followed Sophia around like a horn dog after a female in heat. At least he came to his senses for a bit when he found out Sophia was engaged. (You'll have to read the story to find out all about that).Anyway, this was written as a multi pov....and when I say multi, I mean MULTI....we had Mark, Sophia, Max, Kyle, etc. etc. etc.One thing I did truly love about this book was that it had all the characters from the previous books locked up in one location. So we got to see how things are progressing basically with everyone. It helped to tie everyone in. The whole concept for the most part was pretty good. The whole dancing thing though could have been left out. To me, it was just filler and not needed. I think there could have been a different way the characters could have been integrated into the storyline.All in all, a good storyline concept. The dialogue between characters was fantastic as always. No heart twinge moments but I did have a chuckle or two. Was also sad to see the passing of a beloved character. The descriptions to details were done well.This can be read as a stand alone.Would I recommend this book? YesWould I read more from this author? YesSassy Beta Reading & Review

    "AWESOME!!"

    And they all come together again. This time it’s on a cruise to bury a member of their “family” at sea. There’s always something happening when they get together. I loved Mark & Sophia together. I’m really glad they “found” each other. He really needed that since Sophie. I really enjoyed that all the members from the previous books were together on the cruise with their spouses. The strength of their brotherhood is always enjoyable to read about. And yet again…JD’s voice!!!

    "Love Seal Team 3"

    I was excited to have Mark’s story because I fell in love with him in Seal the Deal. I will say that I was a little disappointed and did feel this was a rushed ‘love-at-first-sight’ relationship with Mark and Sophia, I thought the connection he had with Sophie was much stronger and felt more real. But I pushed through that, and did end up enjoying the book. I do have to admit, though, I think my favorite part was Fredo and Mia, and without giving any spoilers, that’s all I can say about that!
    Since most of our guys from Seal Team 3, along with their wives/girlfriends, were together on this cruise it was great to get caught up with everyone and see the passion in their respective relationships is still burning HOT!
    My main wish, and the thing I was most disappointed with, was not having more of the story on Gunny’s passing and only having mention of them coming on the cruise to spread his ashes and then never getting the story of them actually doing so. This may not bother any other of the readers, I just really loved Gunny’s character.
    There was mystery, suspense, and danger all mixed with hot and steamy romance from several of SEALs we have come to love. I love their loyalty and brotherhood to each other and how they all will protect each and every one of the women who love them.
    If there were ½ stars, I would give this a 3.5, but since there aren’t, I always round up. Can’t wait to see what’s next for Seal Team 3!

    "A Vacation Adventure to Remember"
    Any additional comments?

    I thoroughly enjoyed this installment of the Seal Brotherhood series. I loved the premise, vacation romance packed with adventure and action. I've been waiting for Mark's story since we met him in Seal the Deal, I fell in love with how he dealt with Sophie, and I was excited for his story. It didn't disappoint! Sophia was a lovable, strong heroine, I loved that she had a vulnerable side, but was strong as nails when necessary. I loved the antagonism of Roberto and the way the relationship between Mark and Sophia played out. I felt a little lost on the time table aspect of the story, but that never entered my mind until I heard the words The End.

    I enjoyed catching up with the couples/characters from the previous books in the series, I love seeing where they are now and getting a picture of where they are going. I can't wait to listen to more of this series!
