Navy SEAL Brant "Bronco" Adams adores women but never lets himself get too close to any one of them - until he meets sweet, classy Rebecca McDougal.
Rebecca is the wife of Mad Max, Brant's commanding officer and safely off-limits - until she confesses that she's desperate to escape her nightmare of a marriage and that Max isn't the upstanding commander they all think.
Emboldened to protect her, Brant skids head-long into Mad Max's plot to do him in. Suddenly, the former playboy will assume any risk to give him and Rebecca hope for a future of their own.

Hard Landing

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

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.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Hard Landing?

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.

Which scene was your favorite?

At the end when Broncho and Rebecca were in Hawaii discussing their future and future wedding.

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

Just when you don't look for it, love shows up.

Any additional comments?

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

If you could sum up Hard Landing in three words, what would they be?

Complicated, Tense, Well-Developed

What did you like best about this story?

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.

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

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.

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

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.

Any additional comments?

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.
