So-so

I had trouble with Melody, the female main character. I just found her annoying and hard. If I was Harlan I would have left her after the first week. She's not very likeable.

Great Narrator, Loved the story

One installment of the "Alpha Squad" SEALS. Truly enjoyed this book, narrator one of Audible's best and the characters believable. Definitely worth the credits. Will listen to this book more than once.

Just skip this one...

This has to be my least favorite of Brockmann’s SEAL books. It starts out well, with the SEALs rescuing Melody Evans from hostage situation at a foreign embassy. Harlan “Cowboy” Jones is her personal escort during the escape. After the rescue, the have a brief but hot fling.

Then it is all downhill. Melody learns she is pregnant. Keeps it a secret. Cowboy finds out and comes to persuade her to have a relationship. Melody proceeds to go on and on and on about how she wants to marry someone normal. She is TSTL as well as arrogant and obtuse. Melody is in no way redeemed and didn’t really find myself cheering their HEA.

Note: Please, do not stop at this book ~ the others are so much better. I am not even sure you have to read it to enjoy the rest of the series.

UPDATE 8/12/19: I usually skip this book when rereading the series. However all the TDD books are on Audible Escape, so I thought I would give it another try. I had to DNF. The narrator is terrible. She performs action scenes with the excitement of someone reading a grocery list. When following the book saying that Joe Cat has a NY accent, she gives him 4 words in that accent and then drops back into her lackluster voice for the remainder of his dialogue. The same with Blue’s southern accent. It’s like she can’t be bothered.

Didn't care for this one

The main character started out interrsting and strong. Then strong was mixed up with ridiculously stupid, she strung him along until the last chapter.

Couldn't have made a more unlikable heroine.

Have to say this heroine is the worst I have ever read in any book. Was the author purposely making her unrelateable and detestable as possible? Not sure what she was thinking with this one.

Holds some interest, could have been better

The story included the point of view of both the macho guy and the feminine lead which was interesting, the story held my interest, but there was a lack of other characters like friends and like where were the parents, their daughter is having a baby alone and there is no mention of family, ever?
The story was not dynamic enough or believable enough.

Excellent

Loved this book. It had everything I've come to expect from Brockma; a well developed plot and the right blend of romance and sexual context between the main characters.

An all time favorite ... I re-read my all my favorites.

I read this book many years ago for the first time, and have read again several times. I love all of Ms. Brockmann’s series, “Tall, Dark, and Dangerous”, but this one is exceptionally good. The narration is on point, which from me is high honors. I’m really picky about narrators. The story line is romantic, exciting, fast moving, and entwines multiple characters. A definite A+

Too much angst for me

I couldn't listen to this book all the way through. It was just too heart wrenching for my taste so I skipped a lot of it. Very good narration.
