Publisher's Summary

The right man for the job?

When it came to protecting the innocent, Bobby Taylor was your man. But when his best friend, Wes, asked him to keep an eye on his little sister, Bobby desperately wanted to pass. Because to him, gorgeous redhead Colleen Skelly didn't look like anyone's kid sister. He doubted she was innocent. And he wanted to keep more than just his eye on her....

After years of trying to get magnificent Navy SEAL Bobby Taylor to herself—and away from the prying eyes of her meddling brother—Colleen had finally succeeded. Bobby was hers, if only for a few days. And she had her work cut out for her. She had to prove that she was a grown woman—and that he was all she would ever need in a man....

Painful narration

This narrator is painful to hear. Her voice is a nasal grunt at best, even for the young women characters. It is hard to listen to a man who sounds like a 80-year-old chain-smoking woman, but listening to a 23-year-old woman who speaks like a young boy belching the alphabet is equally annoying. All Suzanne Brockmann's books are about the romance, and there is just nothing romatic about these character voices.

READ ALL of the Dark & Dangerous Navy SEAL Series

Throughout this particular Navy Seals series, Bobby Taylor was the most understated member of ALPHA squad team. Honestly, I think I love his story most of all, not that the others aren't action packed, romantic, hot and sexy! Go to Suzanne Brockmann's website, print the sequential order list for this series. MUCH better when you read them in order! Worth the summer discount prices or definitely worth the credits to get them all. I have listened to the series (11 books in the series) TWICE and will definitely listen many more times in the future. BUY all 11
I want to be an amazing Navy SEAL (God Bless America) in my next life!

Unfortunately not the best production

Narrator was not a good match for this book. I enjoyed the story, but the narrator's performance got in the way.

More love story than seal mission

Love story enjoyable. Narrator made it hard to decipher characters' thoughts from actual words or actions. Bobby's voice should have been deeper. It seemed like a throaty whisper. Listened to most of story during 4-hour car ride, which made the time fly by both ways.

Love Suzanne Brockmann but narration is annoying

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

I love all Suzanne Brockmann books and this was no exception.

What did you like best about this story?

I love getting to know each of the Seals.

Would you be willing to try another one of Alexandra Fisher’s performances?

No. Her voice becomes like fingernails on a chalkboard. I think I would have liked the protagonist, but her voice is so whiny and nasally that it was hard not to hate her.

This was my least favorite in this series.

Alex Fishers voice drove me nuts. I stopped several times in the course of listening to take a break. The story seemed to go on an on about the same thing. The last few chapters were better.

Story good, voice not so good

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I would recommend this book because the story is excellent and brings the other characters into this book.

Would you be willing to try another one of Alexandra Fisher’s performances?

Probably not. The voices sounded off, and some sounded so similar that you couldn't tell who was who.

More of the same.

The Tall, Dark and Dangerous series is defiantly no Troubleshooters, but it is a nice romance. There is hardly any action in this book, when I think Suzanne Brockmann could have put lots more action in which would have made it way less slow. I can see how these books are a warm up for the Troubleshooter books. All the books in this series are similar, this one is good but not my favorite. This series should be read in order. Defiantly a sale kind of book. I didn't mind the narrator too much, although her Boston accent is atrocious.

good...bordering on really good

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

Yes...I enjoyed the storyline. Bobby and Wes of the Alpha Squad have ALWAYS been each other's rock. This story pushes their boundaries and tests their friendship. It also brings a whole new side of Bobby Taylor that we haven't heard about in the other books. A new side of Wes too.

What other book might you compare Taylor's Temptation to and why?

The rest of the Tall Dark and Dangerous series by Brockmann. It's good...it's predictable but enjoyable.

What does Alexandra Fisher bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She definitely has enthusiasm. I didn't care for her accent because it reminded me of an 80's surfer girl, which made the cast sound extremely immature in some of the parts. Bobby is supposed to be relatively quiet and her boisterous voice didn't bring that to the table. However, her boisterous voice and attitude definitely made up in the action department. She was not lacking when it came to emotion.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Sometimes opposites do attract!
