Publisher's Summary

Book 1, Echo Platoon--a military romantic suspense series that depicts the perils and passions of U.S. Navy SEALs and the women strong enough to love them.
Navy SEAL Sam Sasseville resents being called upon repeatedly to rescue Madison Scott, an oil tycoon's daughter, from trouble of her own making. Just weeks after extracting her from drug-riddled Mexico, Maddy disappears into the terrorist-threatened region of El Chaco, Paraguay.
Dedicated to protecting the world's last agricultural frontier from her family owned oil wells, Maddy knows her long-dead activist mother would approve of her work, even if that blasted Navy SEAL doesn't.
But between the terrorists trying to nab her and the shadowy assassin intent on snuffing out her life, Maddy and Sam discover a common goal--keeping her alive--while Sam faces a difficult choice: love Maddy just the way she is or walk away with just his pride for company.

Exciting, Opposites Attract Romantic Suspense

If you could sum up Danger Close in three words, what would they be?

Dangerous, Passionate, Engaging

Who was your favorite character and why?

Salim- I found him such a compelling man who was nuanced with shades of gray. The last scene he appeared in left me very emotional.

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

I felt like he brought Sam to life and gave his character heart. He told a story that wasn't overshadowed by any of its many individual components.

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

I had more than one extreme reaction.

I never did warm up to the heroine. She drove me nuts b/c she was stubborn-stupid over things.

There were two moments that left me emotional. One made me cry when a character I liked died.
Then the Epilogue was such a big happy that I was 'ah'ing and grinning.

Any additional comments?

I felt this story was a nice balance of romance and suspense. The descriptions, back grounds and plot felt authentic and exciting. Pace was good. The romance wasn't my thing at first b/c I didn't like the heroine, but I still appreciated the way the author wrote the romance development.
The narrator did a good job with individual voices and accents. His pace was good, his emoting was just right and I thought he was a good choice for a thrilling romantic suspense with lots of male characters.

First Marliss Melton experience

Would you listen to Danger Close again? Why?

Probably not. Only because I have such an extensive library, that there is no time to listen to books a second time.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Danger Close?

When Maddie broke Sam's nose.

Which character – as performed by David Brenin – was your favorite?


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


Any additional comments?

This was my first Marliss Melton and David Brenin book. I enjoyed both the story and the narrator's voice. I plan on reading the other Melton books. My enjoyment of an audiobook can be influenced by the narrator and how well I like his/her voice. There are certain narrator's that I will not listen too because his/her voice just grates on me. That is not the case with David Brenin.
