Navy SEAL Armando Guzman has just returned from a difficult tour in Afghanistan only to find his sister still making choices that land her in the company of a San Diego drug gang. Vowing he will save her from the bad environment she has placed herself in, he is blindsided by his sister's hotter-than-hot best friend, Gina. Gina Mancuso is working her first undercover detail, trying to prove herself on a male-dominated police force, even if it means she has to work side by side with the SDPD officer with whom she had a brief, abusive relationship.
She is not prepared for the chemical attraction that slams her against the hard body of her subject's Navy SEAL brother, Armando. Their hot affair not only threatens to ruin her mission, but could engulf Armando in a career-ending dispute with local law enforcement. Armando is unwilling to walk away from his sister, especially as tensions rise between he and Gina's ex-lover. Gina is in a race for time to keep her secret identity from the man she is now sure she loves with all her heart. But will she have to sacrifice their relationship in order to accomplish the mission she was sent to do?

"To Thy Known Self Be True"
Yes, well worth the credit.
Armando. Strong character but was polite and genuine.
He brought the book to life. He tells a good story with characters that I believed.
The end scene. I want give it away.
I'd like to hear more from this author.
He does a solid job. I am more convinced than ever that a narrator can make or break a story. He definitely adds to it.
I have really enjoyed the books in this series, but there were times when I was a little uncomfortable with the bondage elements in this particular story. There wasn't much, but it goes to show what a prude I can be at times. Overall, the story was great.
Yes I found things around the house to do so I could listen longer

She has to keep Armando in the dark, keep Sam off her back and out of her bed. Things will come to ahead as she is living a life in two different worlds.

If you haven't listened to anything by J. D you are in for a treat he brings so much to this audio from his sexy voice to his sexy accents. He gives a rich deep tones that will weaken your knees and make your heart sing. His male voices are just a wonderful as his female voices. He leave you with a smile on your face and dreams in your head as you picture the story he gives. There are no breaks that you can tell nor are there any background noises just wonderful clean rich tones that you will enjoy through out this book. He never leaves you guess to what emotion the characters are feeling as he gives you powerful wonderful sexy scenes that will burn up your ears. There is little doubt why he is one of my favorite male narrators with a wonderful voice you never get tired of listening to.
Ms. Hamilton has really grown as an author as she gives you strong male and female characters. These are characters you will come to know as family as you read or listen to her series. Each book brings back a little from the last, you see how each character has grow and what changes have come into their lives. It is always hard for me to pick my favorite Seal since each one of them hold a special place in my heart. If you are looking for a hot suspenseful which is on the erotic side you can stop looking and pick up one of her books. If you want one that is even hotter than I recommend you pick it up in audio and listen to Mr. Hart wonderful sexy voice.
Ms. Hamilton always gives you a thrilling exciting story with believable every day characters. Her Seal series is outstanding she has given a lot of thought to character what they do or how they deal with issues as she deliveries a read that will keep you on the edge whether that be the hot love scenes or the danger these Seals come in contact with. If you haven't had the pleasure to chat with this author you might want to take some time with her next chat as you get to know her and her style. I hope you pick up one of her books as well as one of her audios for a thrill of your life as two wonderful people come together to give you one outstanding listen.
Another winner by Sharon and JD. I was sad to hear it end. I love listening to JD's cover of SEAL team 3. He keeps the characters in play with each book and not having him I think would ruin it for me. I will totally listen to this book again and I recommend it. It has unexpected twists throughout the story that keep you engaged and not wanting to stop listening.
I listened to the first story and really loved it. This book is even better & the narration was much better with this book, the narrator seemed much more comfortable with this book.
The book itself is GREAT! I love how there is such a great story of hero's & Love. The best part of it was the characters and how the author brings them together and continues the interactions between the books.
Gina & Armando are an intriguing couple and seem to find themselves with each other.
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
near the top 5.
I havent read one to compare it to yet.
I loved How JD reads all the charachters.
Of the three so far, Armando has been my favorite. I loved him and Gina together.
Armando will do anything to help and protect his sister. His devotion to her makes him such a great character. I loved how open and caring he was. When he gets with Gina, passions ignite, emotions skyrocket and love blooms. Armando gets knocked on his butt when he see's Gina for the first time.
Gina is an undercover cop on assignment and is trying to get information from Mia, Armando's sister. What she doesn't expect is to find herself in a whirlwind relationship with Mia's brother. She so badly wants to tell him who she really is but will not do so, because she doesn't want to jeopardize her cover.
I had only 1 heart twinge moment in this but that is okay. The writing was well done, the characters were engaging, their dialogue entertaining and the descriptions to details were done well.
This is written as a multi pov. There were a few bits that could have been eliminated but I am hoping that them being in this book leads to more happening into later books.
Would I recommend this book? Yes
Would I read more from this author? Yes
Sassy Beta Reading & Review
Although this was shorter than the other, it was one of the best. Armani & Gina and the fire between them. Armani has got to be my favorite so far. He’s so well mannered, polite and HOT!!! And the loyalty he shows to his sister is just amazing. JD did another amazing job narrating this one. I am so ready for book 4. Bring it on!!
To begin with, the audio version of this book was shorter than the others, but that didn't take away from the story at all in my mind. In fact, it was even better because the story was so compact that it drew me right into the story as it was being 'told' to me. I enjoyed the story line a lot in this one, dealing with Gina and her undercover activity and Armando Guzman, who, of course, is Gina's HEA. I loved the heat and the passion between those two, as well as the main story that wove their lives together. But, to be honest, the one thing that I felt as though reflected in this story more so is the skill that Ms. Hamilton has in creating her characters. This book perhaps was the perfect way to have that skill shine through. The character of Sam was created in such a way that as a reader/listener your stomach twisted every time that Gina's did, you saw the manipulation and the twisted side of him, and the combination of the writing, as well as the narration, made Sam one character that I actually found myself loathing. Sure he has his sob story and his reasons for doing it, but he was just a 'jerk' to put it mildly and there are a lot of better words out there, however most of them will probably get this review censored. I'm pretty sure that he was meant to be that way, and I think that if I had just read this book myself I would have disliked him. However, with the narrating skill of J D Hart, I absolutely loathed him! I just couldn't stop listening though, and that's the key part to an audio book. The story that was written and the skillful way that the narrator draws you into the world. Hart and Harrison are a good combination and I'm looking forward to reading the next in this series.
So excited that I finally had the chance to listen to "Armani's" story, and Sharon Hamilton didn't disappoint. Armando is a bit of the playboy of the Seal team, and the heat he brings to his relationship with Gina had smoke coming out of my phone. Loved that Gina was such a strong heroine, and that she stuck to her guns, no matter what. I did want to punch her boss a few times throughout, and don't even get me started on the @$$hole Sam. Mia is also an character I would love to see put in her place. She always seems to get away with being a whorish troublemaker who never feels the repercussions of her actions. (Although isn't that how it always is?) Full of suspense, betrayal, and yummy sex scenes, I found it hard to pause this audible. A fantastic book, and J.D. Hart made it even better with his sexy voice. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a sexy Seal audible.
