Fredo's concern with the neighborhood kids
I have been a fan of Ms Hamilton for a long time, and somehow had failed to read Fredo’s Secret. So, I decided it was time to reconnect with him via an audio book titled Fredo’s Secret. First I have to say, I enjoyed the narrator’s delivery. You always knew who was speaking. So I was happy to give it a try.
In this story we discover recent news Fredo has received which have devastated him tremendously, but though he knows he needs to tell Mia, who is now his wife, he fears her reaction.
In the midst of all this, there are gangs threatening lives in the neighborhood Mia’s mom lives, and he is determine to help the neighborhood.
We get a chance to greet some of our favorite characters from previous stories: Cooper (whom I loved) and Kyle.
At the end, will Fredo reveal his secret or will he continue to keep Mia in the dark? Pick up the audio or the novella to find out. You will not be disappointed since this is another entertaining and thoughtful story by Ms Hamilton.
I have been waiting for what seems like forever for Fredo to have his own book. We see/hear him in all the previous books in the series but he's never had his own time to shine in a book and finally it's here!!! This was a short listen but oh well! I'm just happy to finally have a story centered around Fredo. He cracks me up.
This book, like the others had action, heart ache, suspense, revenge, etc. Of course Fredo is already married so we don't get to hear the courting of their relationship but we do get the benefit of their relationship being well established :)
A fantastic lil novella.
Would I recommend this book? Yes!!
Would I read/listen to more from this author? Yes!!
I am a 39 year old woman from the midwest. I love to read Romance and mystery. I like to scrapbook, play the gutar, Crochet, and sing

Yes, I would because Fredo is my favorite character and love the voice that JD Hart does for him.
That it is finally about Fredo and Mia!!
I love when Fredo was in the hospital and Mia's reaction (Read for more....)
I laughed and cried....

Fredo is my favorite character in this series. I love how JD Hart does his voice. Fredo has a secret and he is afraid to tell Mia. Keeping secrets do not work. That secret comes out anyway. It is better to face the one you love and tell her before she finds out another way. Mia has been through so much and it is finally nice to see her and Fredo happy and in love. More than anything all she wants is Fredo, who needs to realize this on his own.
I can not wait to read/listen to the other 2 books in this series!
I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.
Recommend this book? Yes! Author? Yes!

I loved getting a better look into Fredo and Mia's relationship, they've intrigued me since we first met them. Fredo's devotion and love for Mia and her son is something special and I loved the look at the softer side of Fredo. The way he came up with and worked on the community project really highlighted the type of man Fredo is.
I loved the action portion of this story. There is so much that goes on in this short story, I love that it was all developed, flowed from one event to another and and concluded in the way it did. I loved how Fredo too Julio under his wing, protected him when he could, and fought to essentially avenge him in the end. In addition, I loved seeing the rest of Seal Team 3 make appearances and support Fredo is his quest to revitalize the community.
I love that Sharon wrote this short novella for her readers, and enjoyed J.D.'s interpretation of the story. I loved the action portion of the story. The beginning was engaging and grabbed your attention and the flow of events kept you in the story until the end. A fantastic short story from every angle.
First J.D. does an awesome job and makes the story very enjoyable. Then of course I have been waiting to find out more about Fredo. He always make me smile.
I really liked Fredo. I was so glad he got his own story as he has been an awesome supporting character in the other books. I liked we got to see inside his head and heart more to see the real man he is.
He brings the characters to life. You can picture them in your mind and feel what they are feeling just by the changes in J. D.'s voice.
Yes, When Fredo was injured and Mia was at his bedside. She fought his love for so long that it was great to see the love she felt for our misunderstood seal with the uni brow. :)
I am so glad Ms. Hamilton wrote his story. Fredo always make me laugh when he lands his zingers on the other guys. I enjoyed getting to know more about the man and to better understand how his mind works.
Fredo's Secret is another incredible read...or listen rather. J.D. Hart captures your attention from the start and pays such attention to detail with infliction and intent.
I was glad to get a chance to hear Fredo's story. Fredo has a secret that he chooses to keep from the heroine. I was shocked that he would do such a thing and led me to feel like he couldn't trust the woman he loved. The overall story was great with the team interaction, but I was not a fan of the secret keeping. It hung over the heads of the characters for me. Overall it was a good story.

What do you do when you have a big secret and you don't know how to tell the one you love? You ask your best friend for advice.
It was great seeing the team come together and work as a unit. It was refreshing to see such a confident man effected so deeply with the burden of his secret. He loves her for certain, but he doesn't know if she will continue to want to be with him once she knows his secret.
I can only imagine what a man like Fredo is feeling. My heart truly felt for him.
Thank you Sharon for writing another high energy story that also portrays real life issues and struggles.
Note- If you haven't heard J.D. Hart: "The Pirate Storyteller" narrate a book yet, let Sharon Hamilton's "SEAL brotherhood- Fredo's Secret" be your initiation into audiobooks. OH my word, it's a miracle that I can get any work done while listening to this book!
Seriously though, the man has a true talent and his narration is superb
Definitely as I really enjoyed listening to JD'S marvellous narration
Fredo as he's so down to earth and normal and JD's sexy accent for Fredo makes it exciting to listen to.
I've listened to all of JD Hart's marvellous narration, and this is another winner
I really enjoyed the heroines hospital visit and all the other SEALs who we know and love
This is another winner from Sharon Hamilton and JD Hart
Being one of Sharon Hamilton's its up there at the top of my list
When Fredo & his fellow Seals try to make a place for the kids
The hospital bed 😃
The whole book did
Fredo has always been one of my favorites in the series and getting more of him was awesome. The narrator JD Hart is just outstanding by how he brings the story to life
