Surrender | [Brenda Jackson]

Surrender

After a childhood spent moving from army base to army base, independent-minded Nettie Brooms is determined to secure a stable life - and never become involved with a military man. Then she meets incredibly handsome and charming Ashton Sinclair, a dedicated colonel in the U.S. Marines who's intent on capturing her heart - no matter what it takes. Now Nettie's wondering how a man she swore she would avoid could so easily test her resolve by igniting an irresistible passion she can't walk away from.

    I'm a huge fan of Audible. As a school librarian, I've found that it passes my days and nights.

    "Not as good as others"

    This book was just okay to me. I'm a Jackson fan, but this one was sort of unrealistic. The narrator was as expected... Not my favorite.

    Story
    "Wanted to like it more (said with a raised brow)"
    What would have made Surrender better?

    The phrase "lifted/raised a brow" occurred 44 times in the book. 44 times. Yes, I counted when it started getting comical. We get it. Many unbelievable things created high eyebrows. Maybe if I he story was actually believable....


    Has Surrender turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Yes. I'm done with Brenda Jackson. Why do all of the characters have multiple names? Too confusing to keep the extraneous characters straight. Also, the overlapping stories were majorly unbelievable.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Where do I start? The volume was all over the place. The whispered parts were unintelligible so I turned up the volume only to be blasted out unexpectedly. Was that a narrator problem or audio engineer issue? Truly a problem. Also, why did Sinclair's character have such a halting, creepy cadence? No one else did. Was it to make him sound "ethic?" Wrong on so many levels. Not my favorite narrator.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Surrender?

    Kidnapping scene to Oklahoma reservation was too strange and did not suit the characters at all. Why couldn't all that have happened on the planned trip to New Orleans? The book needed a serious editor to be the voice of reason and to cut the fluff. Seriously. Some characters have five names. Give me a break.

    "Awesome!"
    What made the experience of listening to Surrender the most enjoyable?

    If you want to read about REAL Romance, Love and Honorable and Protective Men you must read Brenda Jackson Books. Especially Surrender and Thorns Challenge, both are my all time favorites. I have both in audible and paperback.
    I wasn't to happy with the performance in Surrender but the Story makes up for the narrator's short coming.
    Keep them coming Mrs. Jackson!!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Ashton of course was my favorite. He's sexy, strong, protective and loves his woman unconditionally


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes
