good story but painful narration

Found the story to be one of the better ones of the series, but the narration was painful - the upward inflection at the end of every sentence (especially in the second half of the book) grew ever more of a distraction!

Same story, different title

This has a very similar story line to "Everyday Average Jones" except that it's the hero instead of the heroine who is pushing the other one away. I know there is a need to create some angst in the love story, but the entire book has spent too much time with the main characters running away from each other. I still enjoyed the story - just not as much as some of the others in the series.

Great Story - disappointing narration.

What made the experience of listening to Hawken's Heart the most enjoyable?

I love this series and this story is so far one of the best.

What didn’t you like about Gabra Zackman’s performance?

The random upward inflection at the end of most of the sentences was so hard to listen to. I got through it by restating the sentences in my mind.

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

As in all of the stories in this series, I always choke up when the SEALS do their big rescue scenes.

Any additional comments?

Despite the narration, I would definitely recommend this to anyone who enjoys this series by Suzanne Brockmann

Seals!

Hawken is the mysterious one - loved seeing his dedication and commitment expanding to Include Nell.

Horrible performance and drawn out.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Just couldn't get into this one. Voice made it uninteresting as well as story was drawn out

Would you be willing to try another one of Gabra Zackman’s performances?

No

Another Romance/Action Combination

This book is a romance that introduces the characters of Jake Robinson and Crash Hawken, two of Brockmann's group of SEAL operatives. The main characters are bigger than life, but the exaggeration is enjoyable.

reader saved this story

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

just a mediocre story. had good potential, but poor editing

just Ok

Have you listened to any of Gabra Zackman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

good, but she had little to work with on this story

Do you think Hawken's Heart needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

not for me

Same as the other stories in the series.

As much as I liked the Troubleshooter series, this one doesn't come close. I do like this series but I don't love it like I did the Troubleshooters. There is very little action in this series, lots of romance. This book had that flash backwards to explain how they met after it got the main story going, and that isn't my favorite type of writing. Overall the book is the same as the first five in the series, so if you like them, you will like this one. Narration was good.

And yet another enjoyable Brockmann book

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

toward the top with the other SEAL books. I am glad I found this series. It is enjoyable with some action/suspense and of course, a predictable love story entwined.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Hawken's Heart?

When they were relieving Daisy's days...can't really go into detail. It was just really heartwarming and heartbreaking.

Have you listened to any of Gabra Zackman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I don't think I did. I can't remember her from another book. However, I thought she was ok. I have heard better, but she did well.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

In comparison to other Brockmann books, no.
