Aspen "Blade" Carlisle is the last of his Delta Force team to find love...and he’s pretty bummed about that fact. Which might explain why he finds himself chatting up a telemarketer as if she’s a long-lost friend. But Wendy is surprisingly easy to talk to, so when they go from occasional calls during her work, to nightly conversations on their cells, it somehow feels right. So right, Blade eventually convinces the funny, sweet woman to meet him in person.

I love the story. The narration was wonderful. The story was brought alive and yes, I did cry. It does have a happy ending. I do recommend getting this story. It is a great one in the Delta Force Heroes series.

Matthew "Wolf" Steel hated flying commercial. Luckily his job as a Navy SEAL meant he didn't have to do it very often. He'd been unlucky enough to be assigned a middle seat on the cramped jet, but fortunately for him, the woman next to him was willing to switch seats with him. Hoping for a relaxing flight, Wolf was pleasantly surprised at the good conversation and sense of humor the woman had as they flew 36,000 feet over the countryside.

What a great first story in Susan Stoker's Seal of Protection. I have read the book and loved it. But the narrator brings the story to life. And it is a love story as well. A happy ending. I do recommend the audible version.

Blythe Coopman never imagined she'd be homeless, but a series of events has landed her on San Antonio's streets hungry, tired, and scared. She clings to her most precious possession, a phone accidentally swiped from a local firefighter, who, instead of canceling the number, starts texting her. Soon, the man's calls and texts are the highlight of her days.

What a great story. I appreciate the story sharing the life that the homeless women live. Many of our homeless are women and children and most of are there not of their choosing. The narrator did a great job. And yes, I did cry. Plus it was a wonderful love story.

Video game coder Harley Kelso thought a tandem skydive would help her make her latest game more realistic. Instead, it literally put her in the arms of the sexiest man she's ever seen. Geeky to the core, Harley is the polar opposite of big and burly Beckett, but that doesn't stop her from wanting to play more carnal games with the sexy soldier.

I really like listening to the audibles especially when they are done so well. This narrator does the different voices so listening is easy and you know when she had changed character. The story is really good and written well. And I liked that our main character lady is not a perfect size, height, and weight. She is forgetful, does not have the perfect home, and she bashful in a way. And our hero is bossy, and very alpha male.

Living in Southern California, Cheyenne was used to seeing hot military men as she went about her daily business. An anonymous encounter at the grocery store cemented her crush on one such man. He was big, built, and incredibly easy on the eyes, but it wasn't as if he would ever really notice her. Always in control of any situation, Faulkner "Dude" Cooper knows explosives. As a bomb expert, he's lived through many high pressure situations.

Stella Bloom does a great job narrating the story. She takes each character and brings them to life. I had read the book before and enjoyed it but with Ms. Bloom narrating, I didn't want to stop when it was time to go to bed. One more chapter. The story involves the leader of the Delta Force team and a flight attendant. They agreed to a one night stand but they really regretted the separation. Then when she is in Egypt, terrorist take over a building that she is in. The Delta Force is called in to save the day. They meet again. It is a love story with a happy ending.

Cookie "Hunter" Knox was good at his job, infiltrating behind enemy lines was one of his specialties. His SEAL team relied on him to do his job, just as he relied on them to do theirs. Ever since two of his teammates found a woman that completed them, their dangerous Ops seemed a bit more intense. Cookie knew if he had a woman who belonged to him, he'd never let her go. Little did he know the SEAL team's latest mission to Mexico would change his life forever.

This is a powerful story about being caught up in the sex slave trade, the rescue, and the aftermath. It is fiction but keep the tissues handy. The story is well written and find that I attached myself to the characters quickly. The performance was excellent.

I am so glad I got the trilogy. This way I just continued on listening without stopping. The trilogy is well written bringing to life the story of men and women during the early part of the 1800's. Trapping, harsh winters, loneliness, love, battles with the Native Americans both good and bad were a part of the adventure. Each book told the story of a man and woman finding true love and included two generations. The narration was very good. Both my husband and I listened to these stories after dinner each night until we finished. We enjoyed the humor as well as we found ourselves laughing out loud during certain parts of the story. I recommend this series

I really like this story. It has all the key elements of a good love story. We have our leading lady finding herself in trouble when her father dies. She is the only woman in a all - male logging camp. So she dresses as a boy and becomes the cook. All the men like her cooking. All is good until the so called engaged woman of our leading man steps in and creates trouble and drama. This is a well written story with a great performance by the narrator.

This is one story that I was really caught up in. The narrator did a wonderful performance and surprisingly, she did a great job on the number of different voices. The story is about a young mom who is going to start over. Her daughter, Hope, brings joy to her life and adds a wonderful character to the story. There is mystery in the story and must be solved. All ends well with a happy ever after.
