Beautiful and self-confident businesswoman Rusty Carlson was hurt, terrified and alone with a man she feared. But one thing was certain – she would surely die without his help. Vietnam vet Cooper Landry had a deep-rooted grudge against beautiful women like Rusty. Experience had taught him they were takers. But he’d survived far worse dangers, and this time he’d be damned if he’d let her risk his chance for survival. But there were predators in the dense woods – both animals and human – and the odds were against them. They could handle that. What Rusty and Cooper weren’t prepared for was the discovery that they desired more than just survival….

I love books, it's my great escape.
Sandra Brown is one of my favorite authors and paired with Joyce Bean I felt confident in making this purchase. This is another great love story by Brown and Bean is an excellent narrator. On a steamy scale with one being the least amount of steam and 10 being totally hot. This story gets a ten from me because of its sensuality and believable characters. I don’t know how Sandra Brown could make someone hopping around on crunches in the kitchen into a hot scene; well you will just have to hear it for yourself. I am about to do a rewind and listen to this one again.
To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe.
This is one of Brown's earlier books. Its a rerelease. For its time it is an ok read. Plot was predictable. I have said before its not the ending so much as it is the journey. If you are a Brown fan, you know how far her writing has come today. This story revolved around an aircraft crash and the two people who survive. Totally predicatable, but a good read nonetheless.
It was nice to revisit a novel that was an actual romance instead of a sex manual . I found nothing missing even though most of the love scenes were implied rather than being explicit. This was an easy read and is just as satisfying as an audio.
50 something listener loves ending the day lost in a good book.
Love story with a twist and lots of drama. Weekend read that i enjoyed on the deck
Probably, because I typically miss some of the details on my first read. But I wouldn't read it a third time. This is one of Sandra Brown's early novels, and while entertaining, can't compete with her later ones, like Lethal, my favorite.
I think it was when Cooper came crashing through the cabin door and threw a knife into the mountain man's chest.
I liked the one when Rusty opens the front door of her L.A. home and finds Cooper standing there, as well as the ones that immediately followed.
I have mixed emotions about this book. There were number of times when I thought Cooper was unbearably crude and verbally abusive. At the same time, there were moments when Rusty came across as unbelievabaly naive and not too bright. That was especially true in her failure to detect anything wrong with the two mountain men, and her faulting Cooper for killing them. It was also true in her failure to recognize, or at least admit, that her occasional and inadvertent nudity had any effect on Cooper. One begins to wonder what world she's been living in. Even so, some of their conversations were amusing and sometimes even funny. This was kind of a microcosm of the war between the sexes: a very masculine guy irresistibly attracted to a very feminine woman and the unavoidable conflict that engenders.
I like the way the reader changed tones of the characters. I thought it was done quite well
I think I would have added another character from the plane to add depth and another protagonist instead of just relying on two random characters and the desolate country.
This is my first one.
No. It wasn't that riveting. Like the title said... predictable.
When I stop and think about this book, it has a lot of things that I normally dislike in Romance novels. Cooper, the male could really be a macho jerk. The woman was at times way too submissive and naive. Yet, I couldn't stop listening to this! I stayed up all night!
What is it about Sandra Brown's writing that makes me more tolerant of things I hate in other novels? Perhaps in spite of some of the bad (to me) formulaic themes of the writing, she knows how to spin a story and create heat between characters?
I thought the narration was fine. Perhaps not the best, but acceptable. Didn't bother me.
I always choose Sandra Brown's audiobooks. Her stories always keep you listening.
Nora Roberts - both enjoyable, easy listening. No brainers!
Narrators are always good. Joyce Bean, especially!
I usually laugh out loud - by myself!
Keep them coming!!
Great Books Don't Promote Violence
As a huge Sandra Brown fan, I hate to be critical of such a gifted writer. However, Two Alone is evidently an early work which should be buried and forgotten.
Rusty (27) was presented as a successful real estate broker, but acted like a dim witted and naive child. After surviving a plane crash, what intelligent, wealthy woman would care if a fur coat was ruined? And what single, attractive woman lives in an urban area without learning to be wary of strangers?
There was very limited character development or background given on either Rusty or Cooper but lots of physical descriptions. These two were alone in the wilderness but rarely spoke, just sent each other lots of lusty looks. All we ever learn about Cooper is that he lives on a remote ranch and served in Vietnam.
The narration was excellent, which is the only reason I finished this book.
