Lucky... in love?
An unlikely state of affairs. For Navy SEAL Lucky O'Donlon was the original love-'em-and-leave-'em guy. Used to women swooning at his feet. So how could it be that the frustratingly attractive journalist Sydney Jameson had nothing to offer him but one very cold shoulder? Well, two could play at this game. But first things first - he and Sydney had a job to do. They had to get their man.
Then there would be time enough for him to get his woman.

I enjoyed this very much. The story was good, funny at the right times and suspenceful at other times. Elizabeth Livingston has a very good voice and does the voices so well I knew who was speaking without her having to say. The romance was perfect. The heroine wasn't fooled for one minute by the Navy "Ken's" god like good looks.
This was everything you might want in a romantic fiction work - well written, good narration and an interesting story line. I totally enjoyed it. Lucky, who initially seemed a bit shallow, ended up being a solidly likable character. Just enough suspense to keep you guessing!
It was slow moving, used too many descriptive words: A writer needs to effectively explain a particular place or situation without sounding like an ingredients enumeration. The words used should be engaging and easy to understand, and the sentence structure should keep you glued in and engaged to the story till the end.
The words were easy to understand, but sounded more like an ingredient list when explaining the handsomeness of Lucky, or Sid's attributes, which permeated the book, and too much time spent on what I call "filler words" with scenes that added nothing to the story, but, in fact, detracted from it. Not enough investigating for an INVESTIGATIVE REPORTER and Navy Seal heading up the INVESTIGATION. It would have made the story more interesting than hearing so much about Lucky's looks and charm.
I was disappointed.
Yes! Fast moving, funny, enjoyable. Has some depth too.
The female lead is a smart and independent lady. ..she attracts and develops a friendship with the male lead due to being appointed to an investigative committee. At first he was a bit of a turkey, and she gets indignant at him when he tries to dazzle her into doing things his way by kissing her. She puts him in his place and he then has to work with her, not around her. I thought the development of their relationship made sense as Lucky gained some more depth of character as he experienced the anguish of awareness of the brutality of sexual assault. The plot was not totally predictable. I liked this book.
I love the whole story, great from beginning to end
I like the suspense, romance. truly a great story.
very good. she added to the story, did not distract from it.
It was just great, And a on the edge of your set novel, really great
Fun, Sexy, Interesting
I loved when she
Many stories of this genre tend to do circles. Same dilema throughout the book, using different words .
Brockmann kept it interesting, as she does in most of her books.
Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
Once you get past how annoying Lucky is with women the story is good. He does improve as the book progresses, but he was always my least favorite SEAL. The ending was slightly anticlimactic and I was thinking the whole time it was the husband of the hypnotherapist, but alas I was wrong. A very good story, I do believe this series gets better with each book. I have been slowly but surely listening to this series. It is good but not as good as the Troubleshooter series which I blew right through.
great serious/fun mix
how awful it was for everyone when Lucy got attacked
She's great! Always knew who was speaking
no because I didn't want it to be over so quick
this is one of the best ones in the series
Great combination of mystery/suspense and romance. Nothing like a chopper full of heroes to save the day. It is an easy and light read and one of my first Audio purchases. It was a great introduction.
Thrilling, Fun and Flirty
A Modern Day version of the Malory/Anderson books from Johanna Lindsey. It's confirmed bachelor meets strong woman and is blown away. He presents himself as carefree and a heartbreaker, but he is really loveable and compassionate. Similar to the Malorys, he doesn't want to let his true form show, because that could lead to love which can lead to being vulnerable!
I loved her voice for both Lucky and Sydney. I thought she did extremely well with character voices. You could tell the difference between the main characters and the supporting ones.
Yes, but I cannot explain without giving it away...I will say it was about 3/4 of the way through!
I got this because it was a 2 for 1 credit item. I would have gladly spent a whole credit on it, maybe even pay full price if I didn't have any credits. It was short (comparing to those I have been listening to lately) and it was fast paced. I didn't get bored and only sleep really separated the times when I wasn't listening. I will definitely listen again!
