Publisher's Summary

All her life, Melody Evans has wanted to marry a plain, average man who doesn’t take risks. But when the foreign embassy is taken over by terrorists and she’s rescued by a daring Navy SEAL, Melody blames the extreme circumstances for their ensuing passion. When it comes to ordinary, Harlan “Cowboy” Jones is anything but, and their encounter leaves Melody with a little more than just memories....

    "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.

    "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.

    "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.

    "Thumbs down on narrator"

    These alpha squad books are great but the narrators are getting worse!
    Jones and Melody finally get it right

    "Way too long"
    What would have made Everyday, Average Jones better?

    It took way too long for the story to develop. I almost didn't finish it. I thought Melody was way too bull headed which I know was the point, however, it was dragged out too long.


    What could Suzanne Brockmann have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    make it shorter.


    What three words best describe Maia Guest’s voice?

    boring


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    disappointment


    Any additional comments?

    I loved Frisco's Kid and Prince Joe this one fell short. Not sure if I will chance listening to any of the others.

    "Everyday Average Jones"

    Really enjoyed the story of Cowboy and Melanie. Two stubborn characters that are pitted against each other in a stubborn match off. Loved he narrators voice! She did an excellent job and I look forward to hearing more from her.

    "A letdown"

    I still love this series, but this one was a letdown from the previous book in the series which was the best one so far ("Frisco's Kid"). I like all of the Navy Seal characters, but this one got dragged out more than it needed to and Melody became irritating after awhile. I did like the narrator on this one - she seemed more like the first one in the series. I actually liked the storyline with Brittany and Andy better. Hope the next is better and gets back on track.

    Story
    "I love this series, but..."

    OK, I have to admit that I am pretty much hooked on this series. I love the stories and the fun blend of a moderately steamy romance and a military plot. The characters are well developed and I really found myself drawn in and wanting to find out what was going to happen to each one of them. However... I found it kind of silly that the main character, Melody Evans, would find herself unexpectedly pregnant by a man that she found so brave, so heroic, so wonderful, yet she would ABSOLUTELY refuse to even be in a relationship with him. It just seems pretty much impossible. Yet, I enjoyed the story and eagerly listened to it. I look forward to the next installment, too.
