Beth Brown’s dream feels so real: a mysterious stranger is gunned down during a violent airplane hijacking, and there’s nothing Beth can do to stop it. But Beth doesn’t believe in premonitions - or does she? How else can she explain the intense connection she feels to the gorgeous man in her dream whom she’s never met? A man she’s determined to save....
Navy SEAL Zane Winters lives for the job, relying on his psychic abilities to keep his fellow soldiers alive. No woman has been able to break through his tough-as-nails warrior mentality - until the day he meets a beautiful blonde who sets his soul on fire. There’s just one problem: Beth is convinced he’s about to die.
To save Zane and the other airline passengers - and to thwart the global crisis the hijacking will unleash - Beth and Zane join forces. But even amid the danger, they can’t deny the powerful force drawing them together. Is it merely attraction…or destiny?

I liked this one in audio
Navy seals and a love story...
Nice voice. She's easy to listen to.
I like the instant connection.
This book was fast paced and kept me on the edge the whole time. I loved the whole paranormal angle…it works here. The chemistry between Zane and Beth was hot. She had trust issues but Zane did not give up. I hated when it ended because I wanted to listen about the whole seal team 7. Can not wait for the next book!!!
Shot in the crotch (so deserved)...have other moments but this tops my list.
Story is action packed, suspenseful, lots of twist...that's Navy Seal alright...totally recomended...cant wait for book 2 because there are so many loose ends that i want to find out about...other than this cliff hanger, loved it!
I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end.
It has alot of characters in this book so I assume there may be more books coming from this one. I like the concept of the story, but I did not feel it. At times I felt more emotions from secondary characters than the main characters.
The two main characters just don't click for me. The book has some very good parts but I never got sold on the storyline.
Chemistry between the main characters.
Like I said, I love the storyline but for some reason I couldn't "feel" the relationships like I have in other books I've listened to. I would recommend something else.
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!
STORY (romance/action) - I love romance/mysteries, but this is my first romance combined with high-octane SEAL action. It works, but it's not my favorite combination. I'm unsure what my "problem" is with this book. The guys are hot, the action/suspense element is palpable and the romance is sweet. Something about it just never grabbed me.
For one thing, I never got into Zane and Beth's romance. Again, not really sure why I didn't. They develop a psychic link with each other, which is okay but...meh. I also got tired of hearing about Zane's musky smoky scent and Beth smelling like strawberries. I did, however, like the fact that they weren't continuously hopping in and out of the sack throughout the whole book. (They were too busy staying alive).
PERFORMANCE - Personally, I think a man should have read this book instead of a woman, but Angela Dawe does a good job. A couple times I got lost between scene changes because she didn't pause appropriately. She goes seamlessly from an action scene into an office interview, so I had to rewind to make sure I wasn't just having a mental lapse.
OVERALL - There is quite a bit of violence -- kidnapping, shooting and severe injuries, including a Lorena Bobbitt-type event. Also lots of macho cursing, including multiple utterances of "Jesus F--k," which might be offensive to some listeners. As far as sex, there's only one long (maybe 3 minutes) sex scene. It's fairly graphic but not extremely so. I'd recommend for mature listeners. While guys would enjoy the action scenes (and there's a lot of them), I'd still recommend only for females because of the hot alpha males and the romance.
While I have both read and listened to this book I have to say I enjoyed it more when I read it. The narrators voice is overly dramatic to the point where everything sounds like a breathy super slouth question. Reminds of those old spy movies with Dick Tracey or something. The story itself is great.
Say something about yourself!
This had everything you need in a romance book. Theres only one thing I would change and that is the timing. I would have liked the days to have been stretched out a little longer and more relationship build up between the 2. I know they are soul mates, but I didn't feel the love on Beths part. It was almost like just because they were soul mates the author left that getting to know eachother part out and rushed their love, not making it believeable to me. Beth pushed him away and then just gave in because they had a connection? I need more than that. I am looking forward to the next books in the series.
I enjoy the story very much. it caught my attention right from the first paragraph. Then explained it an filled in the characters personal stories, as the story moved along. then with a twist you didn't see coming, then another right after...along the way with some humorous smiles and laughter from the authors audience. the only thing wrong with the story was over abundance of explanation of feelings an thoughts and the surroundings places the characters were in.
All characters were likable, even some bad guys. Great departure from all the rich, arrogant, dominating man/naive, poor, submissive woman stories. Lots of action, in both sexual and story progression. Keeps your attention wanting more with no annoying eye rolling, what the ...? moments. Although I couldn't notice much difference between voices of each character, her voice was pleasant.
Keeping with the strong, smart, capable women characters to match your devoted, lovable military men, this series could last.
