Zak is the first in the True Blue SEALs series part of the SEALs Brotherhood series. When I first heard about this book I thought True Blue now aren’t all Navy SEALs true blue what is Sharon up to with this part of the SEALs Brotherhood series and after reading it & listening to it I figured out.

In the novella True Navy Blue Sharon introduce us to Zak. Zak was nothing but trouble when he was younger always a prankster that lead him to trouble but after a friend loses his life overseas I wants to follow his footsteps as a Navy SEAL but almost lost that chance after an auto accident in his hometown which the police chief had it out for him due to his Zac’s fast and furious fling in high school with his wild daughter Amy Dobson. Zak has kept Amy out of his system until she barged back into his life after that accident they spend one stolen night together before Zak ships off for his first deployment and all hell breaks loose. I wasn’t expecting everything Sharon has brought to her readers in her novels in a novella but was I mistaken. She gave her fans everything in this novella thrilling action, hot steamy sex & some HOT Navy SEALs.

In True Blue SEALS: Zak, Zak and Amy’s story continues. Before he deploys on his first deployment with SEAL team 3 Zak and Amy get married they are so happy and so in love before his deployment but when he comes home everything changes. Zak is struggling with what happen to him on his deployment and will not Amy in and tries to push her away. Will his stubbornness push her away or will Amy be a strong Navy SEAL wife and push back.

Sharon once again has started a new series instead of a series and this is one reader who can not read to find out who her next True Blue SEAL will be. If you are expecting some thrilling action, steamy sex and HOT Team 3 in True Blue SEALs: Zak you got it once again.

I was privileged to receive a free audiobook for True Blue SEALs:Zak from Sharon. I have always enjoyed reading Sharon’s books but I am always thrilled to listen to one. J.D Hart always brings the story to life. I wish I knew his secret how he keeps the voice for each character the same, I have never mistaken any character for someone else of his books he narrates for Sharon even if it is a character from a previous book you know exactly who it is. If you are a virgin to audiobooks, pick up one of Sharon’s books on audio and J.D. will have you hooked as he has me.

Navy SEAL Alphonso Manuel Esquidido "Fredo" Chavez has the heart of a lion and would do anything to protect and honor his beautiful bride, Mia. He'd fought for her love tirelessly, even after his Team buddies suggested he give up. But it was more than pride that wounded him when he discovered he could not father children. He is raising another man's son as his own, but can never give her what she wants more than possibly anything else in the world.

Any additional comments?

As a fan of Sharon Hamilton’s SEAL Brotherhood series I have been waiting on Fredo’s story and Sharon made the wait worth it. She first gave us Fredo’s novella Fredo’s Secret. Fredo is keeping a secret from his wife Mia He fears once he gives her his news she will not want him anymore. Even though Fredo’s Secret was a novella, Sharon gave what all her fans expect from one of her books, suspense, thrilling action, hot steamy sex and that dang sexy Navy SEAL team 3.

Sharon continued Fredo’s and Mia’s story in Fredo’s Dream. Fredo is still keeping his secret from Mia, but Mia has a secret of her own which she shares with him which throws his world in a whirlwind. Fredo can’t believe Mia hasn’t been faithful to him how could she do this to them. Will he be able to accept this baby she is carrying as he has stepped up and been a father to her son Ricardo by another man or will this destroy his relationship with Mia.

Fredo’s Dream as like all of Sharon’s other books didn’t not disappoint her fans! Once again we get the thrilling action, suspense, hot steamy sex, drama and that HOT SEXY Navy SEAL team 3. I love how in most of her books she brings some of the team 3 guys back & she keeps us up to date about what is going on in their family lives.

I was lucky enough to listen to this book on audio, Sharon writes the book for us to read and J.D Hart brings the story to our ears. J.D is such a wonderful storyteller, if you never have listen to J.D’s wonderful storytelling, you would think there was another person along with him telling the story. Butt in fact it is ONLY J.D. He is such a pleasure to listen to. When he tells a story you know right away who is speaking he is so magnificent in giving each player in the book a different book. It just amazes me how he can keep the voice to each character straight and from one book to the next, by the way have listened to plenty of Sharon’s books on audio and J.D always has the same voice for each character. If you love reading Sharon’s book and you have read everyone, but have a favorite one you have continuous go back, try one of her books in audio and like me you will want to hear everyone in audio.

I started off by reading Sharon Hamilton SEAL Brotherhood and then Sharon introduced me to audiobooks when I won a giveaway sponsored by her. I had a choice between paperbook, ebook or audio book, I thought I would try my first audio book & dang I was hooked especially with J.D. Hart whispering in my ear. J.D Hart is an excellent storyteller he just draws you into the book & makes all the characters come to life in any story he is telling. It could be a boring book & he would have you eager just to listen, but I have never read a Sharon Hamilton book I didn't enjoy! Alex has a lot of hot steamy sex, actions and those sexy SEAL team 3 that you are always looking forward in a Sharon Hamilton books. Once again Sharon Hamilton has brought another enjoyable book to audio!!

Six years. Two break-ups. One divorce. They should be over each other. Rafe Minelli knows better than to tell his wife no, particularly since they aren't married anymore. She can't hightail it out of town, though, not when they've finally broken through the post-divorce cold war status quo. Olivia Minelli needs to leave Pine Harbour. It's just too hard to see Rafe moving on without her - even if he says he doesn't want to. But when a new and exciting job falls into her lap, she needs to choose: protect her heart, or take the new job....

I truly loved listening to this book, it was a wonderful heartwarming second chance at love book. You can feel how much Rafe & Olivia still love each other after being divorced 2 years, Rafe wants to give another chance but Olivia doesn't want to be lonely in her marriage again, bu when tradegy strikes Olivia rethinks here decision. I loved the banter between Rafe & Olivia one moment they are having a normal conversation & one word is taken wrong & everything explodes. This book had everything I love in a romance, small town atmosphere, nosy but caring friends & family, steamy chemistry, a few tears & a whole lot of laughs. This was my first read by Zoe York & definitely not my last.

I have always enjoyed listening to one of Sharon Hamilton's books on Audio due to J. D Hart that man has the sexiest voice. He makes the characters come to life, has a different voice for each character. But after listening to Nashville SEAL this by far is my favorite to listen to. There are parts in the book where Jameson & Thomas sing & oh my when J. D starting to sing I started to swoon he has an incredible singing voice, I kept hitting the back button several times just to hear him sing. J. D. Hart has ruined me from listening to other audio books.

Cora hit it out of the park again with this book, I haven't found a book I haven't enjoyed by her.This was the first audiobook I have listened to done by Eric G Dove, I feel he did bring the book to life, you could tell her was speaking before it was said most of time. The only problem I had with this Audiobook was some words were changed, left out or added, & one of the characters name toward the end was wrong. But besides those things I really enjoyed listening to the book while I read it.
