Team Fredo!

I can’t quite put my finger on why Fredo Chavez is my favorite character in the SEAL Brotherhood series. It could be because his character is so full of emotion and he has such a sensitive soul. Or it could be the contrast of his hard as nails SEAL persona that I find so Interesting.

Then again it could be the way JD Hart voices Fredo. He emotes a sense of vulnerability that really makes you feel for Fredo.

This 2 ½ hour novella is a prelude to the Fredo’s Dream audiobook and gives a nice insight into Fredo’s personality and how he became the man he is.

This audiobook was gifted to me in exchange for an unbiased review

Another winner for Ms Hamilton

What did you love best about Fredo's Secret?

You get to reconnect with previous characters of the Seal series. Always a plus

What other book might you compare Fredo's Secret to and why?

The other Seal books by this talented author

Which scene was your favorite?

Fredo's concern with the neighborhood kids

Any additional comments?

I have been a fan of Ms Hamilton for a long time, and somehow had failed to read Fredo’s Secret. So, I decided it was time to reconnect with him via an audio book titled Fredo’s Secret. First I have to say, I enjoyed the narrator’s delivery. You always knew who was speaking. So I was happy to give it a try.
In this story we discover recent news Fredo has received which have devastated him tremendously, but though he knows he needs to tell Mia, who is now his wife, he fears her reaction.
In the midst of all this, there are gangs threatening lives in the neighborhood Mia’s mom lives, and he is determine to help the neighborhood.
We get a chance to greet some of our favorite characters from previous stories: Cooper (whom I loved) and Kyle.
At the end, will Fredo reveal his secret or will he continue to keep Mia in the dark? Pick up the audio or the novella to find out. You will not be disappointed since this is another entertaining and thoughtful story by Ms Hamilton.

This was so worth the wait!

Any additional comments?

I have been waiting for what seems like forever for Fredo to have his own book. We see/hear him in all the previous books in the series but he's never had his own time to shine in a book and finally it's here!!! This was a short listen but oh well! I'm just happy to finally have a story centered around Fredo. He cracks me up.

This book, like the others had action, heart ache, suspense, revenge, etc. Of course Fredo is already married so we don't get to hear the courting of their relationship but we do get the benefit of their relationship being well established :)

A fantastic lil novella.

Would I recommend this book? Yes!!

Would I read/listen to more from this author? Yes!!

Book #13- Fredo's Secret (Audio)

Fredo is my favorite character in this series. I love how JD Hart does his voice. Fredo has a secret and he is afraid to tell Mia. Keeping secrets do not work. That secret comes out anyway. It is better to face the one you love and tell her before she finds out another way. Mia has been through so much and it is finally nice to see her and Fredo happy and in love. More than anything all she wants is Fredo, who needs to realize this on his own.

I can not wait to read/listen to the other 2 books in this series!

Action Packed and Heart Warming all in One

What did you love best about Fredo's Secret?

I loved getting a better look into Fredo and Mia's relationship, they've intrigued me since we first met them. Fredo's devotion and love for Mia and her son is something special and I loved the look at the softer side of Fredo. The way he came up with and worked on the community project really highlighted the type of man Fredo is.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Fredo's Secret?

I loved the action portion of this story. There is so much that goes on in this short story, I love that it was all developed, flowed from one event to another and and concluded in the way it did. I loved how Fredo too Julio under his wing, protected him when he could, and fought to essentially avenge him in the end. In addition, I loved seeing the rest of Seal Team 3 make appearances and support Fredo is his quest to revitalize the community.

Any additional comments?

I love that Sharon wrote this short novella for her readers, and enjoyed J.D.'s interpretation of the story. I loved the action portion of the story. The beginning was engaging and grabbed your attention and the flow of events kept you in the story until the end. A fantastic short story from every angle.

The heart of a warrior

What made the experience of listening to Fredo's Secret the most enjoyable?

First J.D. does an awesome job and makes the story very enjoyable. Then of course I have been waiting to find out more about Fredo. He always make me smile.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I really liked Fredo. I was so glad he got his own story as he has been an awesome supporting character in the other books. I liked we got to see inside his head and heart more to see the real man he is.

What does J.D. Hart bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He brings the characters to life. You can picture them in your mind and feel what they are feeling just by the changes in J. D.'s voice.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Yes, When Fredo was injured and Mia was at his bedside. She fought his love for so long that it was great to see the love she felt for our misunderstood seal with the uni brow. :)

Any additional comments?

I am so glad Ms. Hamilton wrote his story. Fredo always make me laugh when he lands his zingers on the other guys. I enjoyed getting to know more about the man and to better understand how his mind works.

Another great hit!

Fredo's Secret is another incredible read...or listen rather. J.D. Hart captures your attention from the start and pays such attention to detail with infliction and intent.

I was glad to get a chance to hear Fredo's story. Fredo has a secret that he chooses to keep from the heroine. I was shocked that he would do such a thing and led me to feel like he couldn't trust the woman he loved. The overall story was great with the team interaction, but I was not a fan of the secret keeping. It hung over the heads of the characters for me. Overall it was a good story.

What do you do when you have a big secret?


What do you do when you have a big secret and you don't know how to tell the one you love? You ask your best friend for advice.
It was great seeing the team come together and work as a unit. It was refreshing to see such a confident man effected so deeply with the burden of his secret. He loves her for certain, but he doesn't know if she will continue to want to be with him once she knows his secret.

I can only imagine what a man like Fredo is feeling. My heart truly felt for him.
Thank you Sharon for writing another high energy story that also portrays real life issues and struggles.

Note- If you haven't heard J.D. Hart: "The Pirate Storyteller" narrate a book yet, let Sharon Hamilton's "SEAL brotherhood- Fredo's Secret" be your initiation into audiobooks. OH my word, it's a miracle that I can get any work done while listening to this book!
Seriously though, the man has a true talent and his narration is superb

Secret SEALed

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Definitely as I really enjoyed listening to JD'S marvellous narration

Who was your favorite character and why?

Fredo as he's so down to earth and normal and JD's sexy accent for Fredo makes it exciting to listen to.

Have you listened to any of J.D. Hart’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I've listened to all of JD Hart's marvellous narration, and this is another winner

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

I really enjoyed the heroines hospital visit and all the other SEALs who we know and love

Any additional comments?

This is another winner from Sharon Hamilton and JD Hart
