I fell in love with Brockmann's Best Selling Troubleshooters, and when i found this series I figured it was where she 'cut her teeth' - setting her up..Show More » for the success of the Troubleshooters.
It would appear that my presumptions were correct - but that did not detract from the enjoyment of the story for me!
I find the trip, not the destination, the most appealing in my stories. Yes, I could kinda predict where the story was going - but Brockmann made the trip interesting and fun.
And is that not the objective behind urban romance - fantasy - fiction stories? To be interesting and fun? Brockmann did both in this story, and i'm hoping Audible takes on the rest in this series!!!
I got into this book a lot more quickly and easily than the first of the series. I was doubtful after that one about continuing to read, but decided ..Show More »to give it a try because this one was on sale. The author really stepped it up, so I'm looking forward to getting the next one.
Having grown up in a small town in the south, I can empathize with the main characters and the things that they deal with. The 'who dun it' thing was good too since I was able to tell somewhat who was involved, but couldn't guess exactly who and why.
If I had a complaint it would be the narrator's inconsistency in voices and accents. But, that wasn't so distracting that it took away from the story.
This was my first Navy Seals book by Brockman. I enjoyed the romance, real-life depiction of the life of an abused and abandoned child and a man who w..Show More »as tough but willing to take on the responsibilities of love and parenting along with finding the ideal woman.
One installment of the "Alpha Squad" SEALS. Truly enjoyed this book, narrator one of Audible's best and the characters believable. Definite..Show More »ly worth the credits. Will listen to this book more than once.
I enjoy all of Suzanne Brockmann's books but what confused me on this one was the lead in announcer saying this book was read by Gabra Zackman, so I w..Show More »as all geared for her and on come Maia Guest. My hope is that by writing this review Maia Guest will get the credit she deserves.
I really appreciate how Suzanne spends the time developing her characters and integrates them into other stories. It makes you feel more close and involved in the story. She is never afraid to write about a political, emotional or social subject. She also doesn't present the subject in a way that turns the reader off. I really enjoy her writing.
Found the story to be one of the better ones of the series, but the narration was painful - the upward inflection at the end of every sentence (especi..Show More »ally in the second half of the book) grew ever more of a distraction!
This was a great story and I thoroughly enjoyed the characters, the story line and the narrator. There was enough suspense and danger to keep th..Show More »e story moving along and enough interplay between the characters to make it all interesting. The "Admiral" was introduced in several of her earlier novels so it had helped that I had read this one farther along in the series. As I travel a great deal in my job, I have enjoyed the Navy Seal series and heartily recommend the novels of this author.
This story could have been a decent listen, nothing to be on the edge of your seat for, but an ok story. However....the narration was horrific. She wa..Show More »s so monotone, no emotion, no voice variation between characters - even male parts. It was like she was just reading off the page, and frankly it was painful to get through because of it.
I enjoyed this very much. The story was good, funny at the right times and suspenceful at other times. Elizabeth Livingston has a very good voice and ..Show More »does the voices so well I knew who was speaking without her having to say. The romance was perfect. The heroine wasn't fooled for one minute by the Navy "Ken's" god like good looks.
This narrator is painful to hear. Her voice is a nasal grunt at best, even for the young women characters. It is hard to listen to a man who sounds l..Show More »ike a 80-year-old chain-smoking woman, but listening to a 23-year-old woman who speaks like a young boy belching the alphabet is equally annoying. All Suzanne Brockmann's books are about the romance, and there is just nothing romatic about these character voices.
Great book if you enjoy the Seals series -loved it
U.S. Seal Wes Skelly, who you've met in previous books, goes on a blind date with Brittany, sister-in-law to U.S. Seal Harlan "Cowboy" Jones a..Show More »nd sister Mel. Both dread the date and it begins with Brittany putting him at ease by saying "Let's just say we're not going to be interested in each other and enjoy the night out." With the pressure off, they become friends, learn a lot about each other and work together to catch the stalker of the sister of Wes's long time crush. A lot of good romance, insight into their own characters with a mystery/thriller in the background. Reminds me of some of Jennifer Crusie/ Bob Mayer co-written books like "Don't Look Down."
