YES YES YES I will be listening to this book over and over again.. This is an amazing story about a young man who made the decision to join the Navy in honor of a friend whom joined and didn't make it back home.
Zak is my favorite. I like how he shows his vulnerable side even though he is a big tough SEAL.
Zak because J.D. Hart brought him to life for me so well.
When Zak and Amy seen each other again and realized how much they still love each other.
The author provided me with a complimentary copy of this audiobook with no expectation of a review If your looking for a great book to listen to while your driving or just relaxing this one is for you.
Loved every bit of the two books about Zak and Amy. They have a tove that sticks through anything. I Wil be listening to this again.
The author provided me with a complimentary copy of this audiobook with no expectation of a review. I previously reviewed True Navy Blue and loved it.
True Blue SEALs: Zak is the continuation of Zak's and Amy's story. I loved this book as well. J.D. Hart did an amazing job bringing the characters to life. However, Sharon Hamilton outdid herself with this book. There were so many twists and turns, ups and downs, that I could not tear myself away from the book.
Part of the book is an ugly cry so make sure you have a box of Kleenex handy. There were a few questions left unresolved so hopefully, there will be another book for Zak and Amy that will answer those.
Once you start you will not want to stop listening. Ms Hamilton's book are always mindblowing and grab you reads. But this audio, OMG. Not only does the story grab you but the narrator changing voices and tones to go with the characters!! They always seem real but J.D. brings them even more to life. This was given to me as a gift but I guarantee I will click the extra money to buy the audio versions when I buy the book. I think this would also be a great gift to someone who drives or travels a lot. They will thank you for it. Outstanding book and outstanding narration.
When Zak was talking to himself about what he thought she was thinking, knowing she wasnt thinking that. So true to real life. Reading into something wrong.
When she finally sees the damage and touches and kisses it.
I laughed, cried and screamed during this book. It had me going in all directions. But then coming together it was worth it.
Ms Hamilton's writings always tear at me but this audio, she picked the right narrator. He knows the characters and brings them across that you feel you know them, know their reactions, there true feelings whether it be mad, love or teasing.So worth buying.
I have already heard a few audiobooks narrated by J.D. Hart consider him one of the best narrators. It's easy to tell what character is speaking and their feelings ,by his intonation. Great choice for these books
This is another of Ms Hamilton’s Navy Seal books. I have to say that the beginning was slow and I almost stopped reading it. But , knowing it was a book by one of my favorite authors,I didn’t give up. I am glad I did because after the first 1/4 of the book, it finally caught my interest.
This story centers around Zak, a new member of the Seals , and Amy his girlfriend who later becomes his wife.
But the real story is that Ms Hamilton brings to the forefront the sacrifices the soldiers and their families make to keep us safe in this country. Some come back with physical and emotional injuries. Some so devastating that the world they knew no longer exists .
We , as a Nation and as individuals, need to do more for them. For that awareness, I thank you , Ms Hamilton.
Zak is book about family turmoil, teen age years, becoming an adult , pride of country and love. While listening to J.D. Hearts narration it is like having the story play as movie in your mind. Having the other Seals make appearances in the books keeps the characters alive and me anticipating the next book. This is a great way to spend some relaxing time. Very well done Sharon and J.D. Highly recommend to everyone!
I have recommended this audiobook to friends already. Not only is the story great, the narration is wonderful and easy to listen to. Any adult that enjoys action, suspense and romance will enjoy this book.
I would compare this book to other books by Sharon Hamilton. I've read all of her SEALs books and each one is written so will it has you turning the pages and holds your interest until the very end. I like how other members of the Team are brought into each story so we can catch up on what is happening in their lives too.
I both, read and listed to the Audible of this book and I have to say, if there was an award for best narrator, JD HART would win, hands down! His voice and accents are awesome and he speaks with so much emotion. I don't know how he keeps each character straight, but when he narrates, I know exactly which character is speaking....he is that good!
Yes....I have found myself ignoring TV and carrying my Kindle and speakers from room to room with me because I don't want to miss anything.
It's nice to have the prequel and Zak's story all in one book so the story can continue without any waiting time in between. Amy and Zak's love continues and we wonder if their love will be strong enough to survive Zak's injuries. He struggles to move forward and accept his injuries but it isn't easy as we learn more about him. Amy is a strong, patient woman.
The story is well written and filled with tension, heart warming moments, emotional moments and some humor. Just a little teaser I will give is how much I loved Zak's costume. :)
I always enjoy the audio version of any SEAL/military romantic adventure because listening to the story really grabs me by the heart and I'm able to identify with the characters so much quicker.
Zack, of course! He's determined to leave his crazy days of trouble making behind him and he takes full advantage of the opportunity to become a SEAL and make his parents proud of him.
J.D. Hart is an amazing actor and narrator because Sharon Hamilton's characters really come alive through his talented narration. I feel as though I'm watching the action on a movie screen in my head and I really enjoy experiencing the story this way.
I had a lead ball in the pit of my stomach during three critical climaxes throughout this high action drama. I felt the same anxiety that Zak and Amy experience each and every time their love is threatened and it always reminds me to remember the sacrifice our military families make every day.
I loved Zak and Amy's story!
I loved Zak and Amy's book. What can I say I am a sucker for a good high school sweetheart story! Especially with these combination of novel and novella. So you got to see these characters grow from being an adolescent infatuation to an adult love and everything that comes with it!
