This Story Is Sexy

Publisher's Summary

I'll be honest with you - I'm no hero. Sure, the media tries to brand every Navy SEAL as some kind of Batman dressed in cammies. There's even a line in one of our cadences: "Superman is the man of steel, he ain't no match for Navy SEAL." You've seen the movies - we're indestructible, invincible. But that night, the one you read about in the papers…all I really wanted to do was get laid.

One harmless f*** with a Curaçao whore, no strings attached. I picked her out of a lineup - wild, dark hair, long legs and a crooked smile. After she sucked me off, I relaxed back onto the creaky, cum-stained cot, thankful for the blissful moments she gave me when I actually forgot for a second the faces of my buddies who died because I made the wrong call, the tears of the children I couldn't save, and the eyes of the enemies I slaughtered during their last seconds of life.

But before I left, her hazel eyes peered into my soul. She whispered in a distinct Californian accent, "My name is Annie Hamilton. I'm an American citizen. I was kidnapped from a cruise ship five years ago. You're my last hope. Please save me."

One desperate plea. This wasn't a Hollywood blockbuster or a New York Times best-selling thriller. I knew that this time there was no room for excuses, no margin for errors. I had one chance to put the cape on and be her hero.

Suspenseful SEAL romance!

This is the first book in this military suspense romance and I found it to be enthralling and well written. The heroine is a girl who disappeared off a cruise ship in the Caribbean 5 years before the start of this story, kidnapped and sold into sexual slavery. The hero is a Navy SEAL who has stopped in port in Curaçao and decides to visit a local brothel. When he’s there he meets the young woman who whispers to him her real name and begs for his help to escape. There are a lot of legalities involved about when SEALs can act to rescue someone, which I did not know. After he’s forced to leave her there with a promise to come back for her on his own, she is moved. When he arrives back there with two of his buddies and finds her gone, it’s a puzzle they have to solve and when they do find her she has a surprise complication. Narration of the story was perfect for the characters.

Awesome!

Wow! This book was awesome. Great Seal book... loved the beginning, and all the action that took place as Pat rescued Annie... Pat was such a great character, and very believable. I think Annie should have been a bit more damaged, but you know what... it totally worked for this story. I totally enjoyed the entire book!

Narration... ok... not big on dual narration... I like the male narrator more than the female narrator...but it was ok...

Great credit, buy or sale...

Hero, Strength, Commitment, Honor - an Awesome mix

Any additional comments?

When I read the synopsis for this book my first thoughts were “Oh wow”. This book was going to be raw, intriguing, and quite possibly very emotional. It was all that - and more... From the first pages you are drawn into a world of Navy Seals. When you think about a Seal you think hero, strength, commitment, honor... The hero in this story doesn't start out as a hero... Patrick is out looking for a little pleasure and he’s willing to go to a brothel to get it. When he gets there he gets the surprise of a lifetime after he chooses “Star” out of a lineup. After business is finished she say's “My name is Annie Hamilton. I'm an American citizen. I was kidnapped from a cruise ship five years ago. You're my last hope. Please save me.”

I loved this story, it fulfills all your need and the narration was great... Hope book 2 is out soon !! :)

No. Just... No.

What disappointed you about Invincible?

Nothing about the characters really pulled me in. The hero was supposed to be an anti-hero, but for me he was just a jerk. Even the things that were supposed to be redeeming about him fell short for me.

The storyline was alright to me and would have been about a 3, maybe 3.5 star story until it hit around 60%. Then things just started to feel extremely rushed, which didn't allow me to connect with the characters and share in the emotion they were supposed to be feeling.

I LOATHED the SEAL credos being interjected in the middle of chapters. If that was how each chapter started, I still wouldn't have liked it, but I could have dealt with it. They completely pulled me out of the story, and while it might work in print since you can see it's in italics or bold or something, in audio it was disconcerting.

Would you ever listen to anything by Alana Albertson again?

Perhaps. I don't think she's a terrible writer, and I'm sure her technique and story-telling will improve as she continues to release more work. I'd definitely be wary before buying though, maybe wait to catch it on a sale.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

He was just alright to me, not horrible, but there are things that he could have improved. It seemed no matter what emotion the lead was feeling, his delivery was the same pace, same tone, same forcefulness. The female narrator was fine, she didn't get much chance to shine, so I don't feel I can give an accurate assessment of her performance.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Invincible?

I don't think I would have really cut anything (except the SEAL credos interspersed throughout the story), but I definitely would have ADDED. More background with the father, better build up to the emotional scenes would have led to a bigger payoff for me. When one minute everything is just coasting and two seconds later everything is perfect unicorns and gumdrops on a marshmallow cloud, it's frustrating to not see how the heck we got there.

Sweet but not enough details. Story wanted to jump around a lot. But a love story just the same.

Enjoyable Read/Listen

Story was very well written and sadly, realistic. We hear about women disappearing in various places and we know sex trafficking is a horrible reality for thousands of victims all around the world. Finding Annie and her rescue were a bit unrealistic but I loved it all the same. At least here, the victim got the happy ending.

My only complaint is the hero all of a sudden having a problem with Annie’s past AFTER he rescued her, AFTER he invited her to move in with him and AFTER he tells her he wants a relationship with her. He should have worked through that prior to getting Annie’s hopes up with the relationship he knew she really wanted.

The twist at the end….didn’t see that coming. Very few books can surprise me so as sad as it was – kudos to Alana Albertson for managing to.

Also, I would move this novel from the Erotica section to military only because the audience for Erotica expects and would want a lot more sex than this book had.

Navy seal quotes throughout the story were very distracting

I enjoyed this story and the performances were good BUT throughout the book the author inserted Navy Seal quotes into the story as reasons why the seal character acted in a certain way (e.g. “I lead by example in all situations”). This would have been ok but he the author had the narrator speak the quotes loudly and in a robotic tone, having no connection to the narration of the book. I found this very distracting and they broke the flow of the narration. If the character had stated, in their normal tone of voice, “in seal training we we learned......”, then gone on to tie that to why he was making his decision it would have been far more believable. It also would have improved the narration of the book.
