Two Alone | [Sandra Brown]

Two Alone

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.

Publisher's Summary

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….

    Story
    "Sensuality, believable characters, totally hot!."

    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.

    "Good for its Time"

    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.

    Story
    "Earlier work but still a good read."
    Would you listen to Two Alone again? Why?

    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.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Two Alone?

    I think it was when Cooper came crashing through the cabin door and threw a knife into the mountain man's chest.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    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.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    No.

    Story
    "GAG!"
    Would you try another book from Sandra Brown and/or Joyce Bean?

    Not for a long time, at least until I forget how bad this one was.


    What was most disappointing about Sandra Brown’s story?

    The characters were just plain unlikeable and really unbelievable. The female is basically a blank slate, undeveloped, unremarkable except that she is good looking. Apparently her looks are her only desirable quality to the male character, who is an over-bearing jerk that basically is willing to give up years of heart ache and resentment because he likes her boobs.


    What didn’t you like about Joyce Bean’s performance?

    She really didn't have much to work with, the story was that bad. The two villain's backwoods accents were overdone and annoying.


    What character would you cut from Two Alone?

    I would advise to go back and redevelop the characters that are there. Give Rusty a personality, make Cooper worthy of redemption, tone down the Dad(he would have had some real affection for his daughter).


    Any additional comments?

    This is another example of where the sex scenes were more thought out than the characters and story line.

    Story
    "Love to hate it (sort of)"

    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.

    Story
    "A Nice Read-Dated Not Exceptional...Not Terrible"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I would not listen to Sandra Brown's 'Note to Reader' in the beginning as she gives the ending away!

    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….


    Would you be willing to try another book from Sandra Brown? Why or why not?

    Absolutely, she is a great author.... this is a re-release from the 1980's -so the reader should keep that in mind when deciding to purchase- however, the love story is timeless.


    Have you listened to any of Joyce Bean’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes. In those I've listened to, she delivers a solid performance. Her male characters sound like men and females sound feminine.


    What would have made this romance irresistible?

    This was a bit of a simple tale. Something a bit more complex with a bombshell twist & more romance would have made it irresistible. However, this was an interesting (yet gruesome) beginning premise with a light, feel good story.


    Any additional comments?

    A few, minor descriptions of sex.

    Personally, I wouldn't use a credit or pay full price for this but would snatch it up if found on sale - which I was able to for less than $5.

    Story
    "A GOOD BOOK"
    What did you love best about Two Alone?

    THE LOVE HATE RELATIONSHIP AND THE LITTLE JABS AT EACH OTHER. THE MALE CHARACTER IS GREAT. THEY DO A PRETTY GOOD JOB DESCRIBING THE FEMALE CHARACTER AS WELL.


    What other book might you compare Two Alone to and why?

    THE AUTHOR HAS A CERTAIN SYLE OF WRITTING, JUST WHEN YOU THINK YOUVE GOT THINGS FIGURED OUT, IT TAKES JUST A LITTLE CHANGE. I WOULD RECOMEND OTHER NOVELS BY THIS AUTHER.


    What does Joyce Bean bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    ATTITUDE, I THINK YOU GET MORE OUT OF THE TONE OF VOICE USED AND THE SARCASIM FROM THE MALE CHARACTER. JUST LITTLE BELOW THE BELT COMMENTS HERE AND THERE BUT WITH JUST ENOUGH SEXUAL CONTENT TO BRING IT BACK.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I DIDNT CRY, BUT THERE WERE SEVERAL PARTS THAT MADE ME LAUGH.


    Any additional comments?

    I WOULD RECOMEND THIS BOOK, THE NARATOR DID A GREAT JOB. THE VOICES WERE PERFECT. DIDNT GO INTO ANY ONE PART FOR TOO LONG, JUST KEPT THE STORY GOING SO YOU NEVER FEEL LIKE TURNING IT OFF.
