    "Great Narrator, Loved the story"

    One installment of the "Alpha Squad" SEALS. Truly enjoyed this book, narrator one of Audible's best and the characters believable. Definitely worth the credits. Will listen to this book more than once.

    "So-so"

    I had trouble with Melody, the female main character. I just found her annoying and hard. If I was Harlan I would have left her after the first week. She's not very likeable.

    "Holds some interest, could have been better"

    The story included the point of view of both the macho guy and the feminine lead which was interesting, the story held my interest, but there was a lack of other characters like friends and like where were the parents, their daughter is having a baby alone and there is no mention of family, ever?
    The story was not dynamic enough or believable enough.

    "Excellent"

    Loved this book. It had everything I've come to expect from Brockma; a well developed plot and the right blend of romance and sexual context between the main characters.

    "A letdown"

    I still love this series, but this one was a letdown from the previous book in the series which was the best one so far ("Frisco's Kid"). I like all of the Navy Seal characters, but this one got dragged out more than it needed to and Melody became irritating after awhile. I did like the narrator on this one - she seemed more like the first one in the series. I actually liked the storyline with Brittany and Andy better. Hope the next is better and gets back on track.

    Story
    "I love this series, but..."

    OK, I have to admit that I am pretty much hooked on this series. I love the stories and the fun blend of a moderately steamy romance and a military plot. The characters are well developed and I really found myself drawn in and wanting to find out what was going to happen to each one of them. However... I found it kind of silly that the main character, Melody Evans, would find herself unexpectedly pregnant by a man that she found so brave, so heroic, so wonderful, yet she would ABSOLUTELY refuse to even be in a relationship with him. It just seems pretty much impossible. Yet, I enjoyed the story and eagerly listened to it. I look forward to the next installment, too.

    "Not an Everyday, Average Jones"

    This is similar to the others in the series. I enjoyed them all, so far, although the Troubleshooter series is much better; there is more action in them. The narrator did a good job. Also good by Brockmann is Infamous, Bodyguard, and of course all the Troubleshooter series in which my favs are Out of Control, Gone too Far, Into the Storm, and Dark of Night. I very much recommend the Troubleshooters they are sooooo good. Although I enjoy the Tall, Dark and Dangerous I probably wouldn’t have read everything by Brockmann if I had started with this series.

    Story
    "It was definitely average"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. It is still a good book. Compared to the rest of the Tall Dark and Dangerous series, it isn't the best, but it is still good.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Everyday, Average Jones?

    I enjoyed a moment in the second half of the book where Jones really let his emotion show. He did it in front of the rest of his SEAL team, so it made it even more emotional! I guess I like to know of a big brute of guy letting his guard down!


    Which character – as performed by Maia Guest – was your favorite?

    She did best as Melody, the main character.


    Any additional comments?

    Overall, good book. Definitely worth the listen.

    "Great listen from a great author"

    This is a fantastic story with very believable characters. The narrator only adds to the story! I would definitely recommend this.

    "UGH!!"

    AWFUL!! I've listened to a lot of audiobooks but this is the first one I've been compelled to review. I wish I could blame it on the narrator (who wasn't very good) BUT, sorry Suzanne - you really blew this one. She included just about every sappy cliche, characters had NO depth, and all were wimpy (except maybe Melody's sister and Andy). I love the Troubleshooter series - funny, fun word-play and full complex characters - "Gone Too Far" and "Flashpoint" my favorites. I'm glad I read those first because if I'd started with "Everyday, Average Jones" I'd have passed Brockmann off as a bad Harlequin author. Go for Troubleshooters series instead - MUCH better.
