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!

Male voices sound weird

Sometimes it's hard for a female to do adult male character voices. She makes Bobby and Wes sound like they're in junior high school. A guy around 6'6 should have a much deeper voice, similar to Brad Garrett

Bobby gets shook up

Bobby Taylor finally takes the fall for Wes’ sister Colleen, whom he’s been crushing on for years, and vice versa.
Brockmann sets up Spaceman and Colleen’s friend Ashley in the upcoming release of Seal Camp - also why I’m rereading-listening to these stories again. And taking the time to post reviews.
There is nothing wrong with Fisher’s voice except, I wish she had more differentiation between male and female characters. A wimpy teenage geek boy sound just doesn’t work for these men.

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.
