Yes. The story was a good one. It had romance, intrigue, a couple of very bad guys. The author seemed to know a lot about the military and the seals in particular which added depth to the story.
The scene where everything came to a head with the bad guys with the big rescue of Rebecca who was certain that she was going to die. This was a nail bitting, pins and needles kind of situation where I kept wanting the good guys to come save the day.
At the end when Broncho and Rebecca were in Hawaii discussing their future and future wedding.
Just when you don't look for it, love shows up.
The only negative I have with this book was the narrator. He did an overall good job but there were times I noticed when he was supposed to be the voice of Broncho hints of other voices he was using would creep in.

Riveting, Intense Suspense & Complicated Romance
Complicated, Tense, Well-Developed
Oddly, it was the complex villain. Max's descent into corruption, need to hide any flaw or weakness, his need to be respected, and the greed all made him interesting to me. He is growly and menacing most of the time with Becca, but he doesn't plan for more than intimidation. He really can't seem to understand where he went wrong with her because he doesn't seem to understand love which was sad. Although any sympathy I felt was erased near the end when he finally slid too far.
I felt he gave each character personality through his use of timbre, pace, and inflection. His Bullfrog voice was my favorite. He made Bullfrog deep, thoughtfully slow, and articulate. Bullfrog's milder emotions like his wry humor, disapproval, skepticism and concern were easy to hear in Armen's voice.
No, but there was no moment that I didn't want to continue and several when I listened past the point I planned to stop. I enjoyed the story each time I went back to it.
I liked many things about this story even though I found the complicated romance situation one that made me hesitate in the beginning. Brant and Becca don't set out to cheat and her situation with her husband leaves her estranged from him before she does anything with Brant. I enjoyed that the author writes in an actual SEAL mission and trainings along with quality time for Brant with his team members Best of all, I am eager for the next book.
