Publisher's Summary

It’s a good thing Gabe Bristow lives and breathes the Navy SEAL credo, “the only easy day was yesterday”, because today, his life is unrecognizable. When his prestigious career comes to a crashing halt, he’s left with a bum leg and few prospects for employment that don’t include a desk.

That is, until he’s offered the chance to command a private hostage-rescue team and free a wealthy American businessman from Colombian paramilitary rebels. It seems like a good deal - until he meets his new team: a drunk Cajun linguist, a boy-genius CIA threat analyst, an FBI negotiator with mob ties, a cowboy medic, and an EOD expert as volatile as the bombs he defuses. Oh, and who could forget the sexy, frustratingly impulsive Audrey Van Amee? She’s determined to help rescue her brother - or drive Gabe crazy. Whichever comes first.

As the death toll rises, Gabe’s team of delinquents must figure out how to work together long enough to save the day. Or, at least, not get themselves killed. Because Gabe’s finally found something worth living for, and God help him if he can’t bring her brother back alive.

WTH?

I didn’t find anything romantic about this . A was more determined to get G in bed than she was about finding her brother and G , to be a Navy Seal was a punk ass. He let her call the shots and they ended up needing to be rescued. The only time she cried is when she thought G was going to die not one tear for her brother.
I couldn’t finish it the title was misleading and I seriously didn’t get it. Too much happening too fast.

The dumbest thing I ever read

Really. No kidding. The dumbest thing ever! A soul sucking waste of time. I wish I had my brain cells back.

🌻why does the Heroine have to be so stupid?🌻

🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻V from Kansas🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻

The storyline definitely had some predictable moments but, I enjoyed most of the interesting characters; except the Heroine! She was an artist with a free spirit but, did she have to be too stupid to live? Why must authors constantly create female characters as weak? It has annoyed me for years. Out of the two main female characters, one is a plastic faced gold digger and the other lacks common sense and a survival instincts. There is no way a former Navy seal would be attracted to a woman, like that.

This book was included with my audible membership, however, the rest of the series is not. I want to know what will happen with the colorful members, of the team, however, I have my doubts that the credits it would cost to continue, would be worth it. Maybe I’ll wait for sale!

ok!

A very well written storyline, well fleshed out characters., and great set up for each guy's story in this series. I can see this appealing to the "more plot than romance" audience altho there IS a romance. but if you are looking for steamy sex, you need to look elsewhere.

Boring

I got through to Chapter 6 and had to give up. First book I've ever just stopped listening to. I literally daydreamed through half of what I heard.

Good story!

This is the first time I’ve read a book by this author and won’t be my last. I really liked the SEAL team characters. Definitely some funny moments on how they interact with one another. The narrator did well in changing his voice. I always like a story which has a twist or something you don’t expect. This story delivers just that. I recommend!

I was hopeful

The story was fair if a bit extended and unrealistic as the "Knight and the Fair Maiden" get acquainted. Unfortunately the Knight liked expletives and his only choice was GD. I know his dog tag said no religious preference but it should have said Satanic with as many GD's as this fellow dropped. This tale had promise even over looking the odd romp of the Knight and his maiden, but geez I was taught Cuss words were used in place of a lack of vocabulary. Yes men use curse words but the men in my family "Navy, and son in Airforce 16 yes, are not cursing the Lord and are not repetitive in the words they do choose to use.

NO, JUST NOO

Bornes Voice just don’t do for this kind of story !
A biker or BDSM story is more his voice, it kills the pace and working of this book !
The story is a BIT thinner on the read-through factor then a lot of other special forces books and/ore series of books.

Good

I really enjoyed the story although i found it a bit confusing to follow at points.

The POV kept changing but not stating it had. I was able to tell from context but a few times had to pause to be sure. Loved that it was in different views, but I would've preferred to have it noted.

Clunky

If you like action romances featuring military men, try Cindy Gerard’s Black Ops or Bodyguard series. This is a poor substitute.

a good listen

first time listening to this author and it was better than most I've read.
there were a few eyeroll moments and I struggled to like the heroine. she didn't seem to have the strength and sass needed for an alpha ex seal. it took me about 3/4s of the way in to concede to her character. perhaps if Ms Burrows had written her with a little more grit earlier it wouldn't have taken so long to convince me.
it's an Insta love listen, and a lot of denying for the sexy steam...from the alpha...( Susan stoker style here we go again)...go figure!!
I got the idea Tonya was keeping the hero stoic hence removed from love, women, romance and all that jazz....but I felt it lacked the depth in word descrption to really convince me.
the plotline was well thought out and just when you thought it was over....I frowned because there still was 90 minutes to go...the finale catches you unawares. not only does it keep the op going, Tonya cleverly weaves the other members of the team and their back story into the mix.
the narration was well done Stephen was a first time listen for me as well and I liked his tone and inflections.
like I mentioned, a few eyeroll moments that took a star off the rating but if you don't mind Insta love, denial,odd action and thoughts in the middle of a crisis, then this is for you. it's well thought out. being over 9 hours long gives you that idea already.
looking forward to the next book....but sadly have to wait for audible.
