Publisher's Summary

Being a Navy SEAL is more than a career to Alan “Frisco” Francisco—it is his whole world. So when a bullet wound threatens his future in the Navy, he is determined to achieve a full recovery…all on his own. But his lovely neighbor, Mia Summerton, has other plans for him. She can’t mend his wounded body, but can she heal his heart?

Enjoyed book & Narrator

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 was tough but willing to take on the responsibilities of love and parenting along with finding the ideal woman.

I do recommend this read.

It was just ok for me..

I enjoyed this short contemporary romance. I liked how the hero significantly evolved throughout the story. I liked how the romance developed. And the five year old nice was simply adorable!! I did feel there were holes in the story. What happened with the sister? Did the niece stay with him forever?

Narration: Lauren Fortgagng either has a very nasally voice or she was congested while she narrated this book. And that was kind of annoying. I also felt like she read too slow at times which made this book feel too long.

For me this book was ok. Would not buy it for a credit but if you find it on sale Then it's worth it.

Decent listen.

Where does Frisco's Kid rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Toward the top. It was a way better listen than some out there, but not the absolute best.

What did you like best about this story?

His bond with his neice. I LOVE how he adapted to her. It wasn't easy, but he did it and he came out better for doing it!

Which scene was your favorite?

In the cabin when Tash couldn't sleep because it was too quiet and Frisco brought Mia into her bedroom and made them both listen to the sounds of nature. I also LOVED when they were shopping for Tasha's furniture and they sat on the pink princess couch that she wanted SO badly. Which made me laugh very hard at the scene when all his team members arrive at his place later in the book after his place got trashed!

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

Again, probably the part in the cabin. It just reminded me of comfort and contentment.

Any additional comments?

I really enjoyed the book. The narrator was good. The story was good. The characters had some depth.

Great story -One of Alpha Squad's best!!!

I'd heard about Frisco in several of the Alpha Squad Seal's books, but his story is great! Take a tough SEAL who can take down any enemy, who also overcame an alcoholic father and difficult childhood and then take it all away from him leaving him feeling useless and desperate. He can barely walk, his sister's addictions have landed her in a jail or rehab situation and left him with her small daughter and a criminal that wants the money back that his sister took from him and call in the SEAL team. Add to that a beautiful neighbor that would be glad to help him, but his manly pride is pricked that he can't carry his own groceries up the stairs. Frisco finally figures out that being a man doesn't come from taking out terrorists, but from accepting what life deals you and making it work -that's what a true SEAL does. Action, love and recovery and a SEAL with a very PINK couch. Another great Brockman story!

I liked this one, it was sweet

A big tough but disabled Navy Seal gets the gentle help he doesnt know he needs from his lovely school teacher neighbor. I liked the humanism of this story, good read

Reality, adaptation, a positive attitude

Alan “Frisco” Francisco is released from the military hospital after 5 years when he no longer makes any improvement on his knee. It devastates him, and he tries to fall apart; but meeting his neighbor Mia, and taking care of his niece Natasha pull him back from the brink.
Brockmann does a good job of making you understand how his injury has impacted his life, why he doesn’t recognize his situation or the choices he still has. Or how good he is at adapting. This so fits in with my experiences in life that some of the worst things that have happened to me have turned into some of the best things, because I’ve looked for the opportunities, and adapted to take advantage of them. “Keep moving forward.”
Fortgang does a good job with narration.
Recommend.

I’ve always loved this story...

But you left off the Epilogue! I know for a fact that the original printing of this book has an Epilogue of Thomas and Natasha sometime in the future and Thomas is going through B.U.D.S. and Tasha is a teenager still in love with Thomas, much to Thomas’ frustration. It totally sets it up as if there’s going to be a story just for them. Unfortunately, Brockmann never got to write their story. I dearly hope that one day she will!

This is what I hope comes to every wounded vet.

This book gives every loyal American a brief glimpse into the trashy of PTSD and the bravery it takes wounded vets and their families and friends to overcome or cope with loss and limitations of war wounds. Great read

Recovery

Frisco's broken in every way but Mia and Tash get him to the other side. I just wish the narrator hadn't been changed from the first two books.

Frisco's Kid

Love this story. Tough Seal takes in little girl it just melts your heart. The narrator is fabulous. Love the various accents she brings to the characters which gives them depth.
