A Pleasant Surprise!

For a short story, it was much better than I thought it would be. The author did a good job describing the "war zone", it was descriptive and interesting. It really made me wish this was longer. Captain Tyler Alexander and his team were ambushed, while taking Junie and the other Peace Corps members to an orphanage in Afghanistan. Junie and the Captain were taken prisoner and he planed a daring escape for them.

The narration was good. I actually liked Michael Icenogle performance more than Rita Rush but they both did good.

This story could easily be listened to in one sitting. There's no steamy romance, but the story follows the characters as they come to terms with their feelings after their ordeal. I received this audio from the publisher for an honest review.

Amazing story!

--I was given a copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review

This is my first Amy Rachiele book, and it was amazing. I didn't know what to expect, have listened to many military romances, but this was really the first one that has taken me to the front lines and made me feel like I was there. The story of Junie and Tyler is a short, but very powerful one.Tyler, Captain of his unit, and Junie, a Peace Corp volunteer are kidnapped by the Taliban early on. Once away, Tyler removes himself as far as he can from Junie, unable to stop thinking about her. Tyler, though an idiot for part of the story, comes through as an amazing, caring man. Just when Junie thought all was lost, he comes in and apologizes, sweeps her off her feet and they are on the road to love. Then, the attack happens and the hero comes through. I love that the hard muscled, strong, brave man saves a piece of shrapnel that he took from Junie, a true romantic keeping something that hooks them to each other and carries it around.

Rita Rush and Michael Icenogle bring this story to life with their tagteam narration. I especially loved Michael, I thought his voice was perfect for this story.
