Wild Card | [Lora Leigh]

Wild Card

It was supposed to be simple. All Navy SEAL Nathan Malone had to do was rescue three young girls from a Colombian drug cartel, then allow himself to be captured just long enough to draw out a government spy. That was before his mission went disastrously wrong… and before his wife, Bella, was told that Nathan was never coming home. Bella’s mourned her husband’s death for three long years, having no idea that he was still alive....

Publisher's Summary

It was supposed to be simple. All Navy SEAL Nathan Malone had to do was rescue three young girls from a Colombian drug cartel, then allow himself to be captured just long enough to draw out a government spy. That was before his mission went disastrously wrong… and before his wife, Bella, was told that Nathan was never coming home.

Bella’s mourned her husband’s death for three long years, having no idea that he was still alive. Forced to assume a new identity, the man Nathan was is now dead. If he can get back to his wife, can he keep the secret of who he really is… even as desire threatens to consume them? And as danger threatens to tear Bella from Nathan’s arms once more?

    "15 HOURS OF PURE PLEASURE"

    If you know L.L.'s books then you know what to expect - fantastic writing, great plot, awesome characters and strong leading men that are hot hot hot. I think this has been ABSOLUTELY her BEST book that I've listened to - it was tender, thoughtful, touching, torturous, tense and totally addictive.

    I thought I needed to sleep but this is one you just don't want to stop listening to but, at the same time, you're enjoying it soooo much that you just don't want it to end.

    Worth a credit? Not just a YES but a HELL YES.

    Story
    "10% Story 90% Sex"

    This book had the potential to be a reasonably good story. But it went the way of the extended erotica that just gets to the point I say get it over with already...good grief. Average chapter has 2 pages of story and 10 of the sexual encounter, or maybe it just seemed that way to me.
    I am not anti sex but it becomes repugnant and the story is lost to the listener. Of course I realize there is a readership for this genre.
    This is totally personal but I cannot abide this narrator and will avoid in the future. This is the 3rd book I have suffered thru her narration. We are just not capable.
    I love a good love story, but a story is more than this. And sex can be more than this banging.

    "Sweet Love Story, the Kind Every Woman Wants!"

    This is the best of the Elite Ops books from Lora Leigh. I laughed, cried, and couldn't wait for each chapter. I read this book last year, but when I saw it on audiobook I bought it right away. This book has all the normal Lora Leigh style erotica - but the story itself is so much better than any of her other books. You can feel how much the characters love each other and how tormented they are without each other. The suspense and action are fantastic, keep you wanting more. I hope Lora brings the other Elite Ops and Seal books to audiobook, loved it!

    Story
    "Simply Dreadful"
    Any additional comments?

    After about 8 hours of listening I could not stand this book! The author used repetition as if she were getting kickbacks for using certain words, e.g. “I’m a SEAL”, “I loved my SEAL”, “I’m the wife of a SEAL”, “Irish eyes”, “My Irish”, “Special Ops”, “Special Ops”, “Special Ops”. I cannot believe this book was written in 2008! It reads like a romance novel from 20 or 30 years ago…I couldn’t stand to hear about this guy’s “tight denim jeans encased in leather chaps” one more time. I enjoy romance and even the occasional erotica novel, but the sex scenes in this book went on FOREVER. “Wild Card” was entirely too long for the plot to have been so poorly developed…the actual story would have been okay, if the author put as much effort into plot as she did into the sex scenes. This book is almost 16 hours, of which maybe 2 hours were actual plot development. I won’t even say “if you like sex, you’ll like this book” because even the most sexually starved person will be like “get on with it already” or “not again". Halfway through, I started to fast forward through the sex scenes and there was nothing worse than hearing “she tasted like sunshine”, “he was throbbing with need” after like 6 or 7 minutes were already skipped. Oy vey, this book was simply dreadful. The narrator was okay…her males had similar sounding moments, but overall she did a fair job with the various accents.

    Story
    "Good but naughty and a bit redundant"
    If you could sum up Wild Card in three words, what would they be?

    Good Story but......


    What did you like best about this story?

    Overall the book was great. I like romance books with a strong storyline that includes strong, sexy men.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Clarissa Knightly?

    Yes, but probably not one with so much sex talk. Her voice is a bit annoying with the naughty bedroom scenes.


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

    I wanted to fast forward thru some of it because the writer is redundant and makes the love scenes go on, and on, and on.


    Any additional comments?

    This book had, in my opinion, too much talk about blow jobs and was just plain dirty in some scenes. I'm all about a good romance but this writer's books seem to get pretty naughty.

    "This one has it all"

    Great story, action, romance and sexy writing. This was a nice surprise in that it wasn't predictable and had some twists and turns that made it interesting. Lora Leigh books are always hot, but some have editing problems and can seem too predictable. This is, IMO, her best one yet.

    Story
    "Naughty and nice."

    This was a great listen. It's typical Lora, and purely enjoyable.The characters are good, story good....

    The only issue I had with it at all is that it seems to follow the now very popular formula of Broken x2 = hot sex life.

    Story
    "Awesome Love Story"
    What did you love best about Wild Card?

    A man's love for his wife while he's going thru hell.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Nathan/Noah, both sides of this man was so touching that you ache to console him.


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

    Yes, Clarissa's performance is captivating which even drawn me into the story more.


    Any additional comments?

    Great book...will listen to more than once...story tugs at the heart and when that happens the author had done good.

    Story
    "surprisingly interesting"
    What did you like about this audiobook?

    I like this book. I am not one for Navy Seal characters but this book was pretty interesting. It involves the usual self doubt, over analyzing, and self loathing characteristics. However, this particular book kept me interested. I'm a loyal Danielle Steele reader and don't usually spend my nights reading authors such as Lora Leigh. I've recently added a few new authors to my list... needless to say! Anywho, the book has action, drama, and sex ..lots of very descriptive sex.
    I wasn't sure at first with the two prologues but it eventually picked up and I was totally enthralled .

    The narrator was really good. No complaints there.
