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.

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.

LOVED THE STORY! LOVED THE NARRATOR!

I LOVED the story with all the action, humor & Romance!
Natrator Stephen Borne is now a new favorite of mine. I love his totally masculine voices& his ability to flawlessly do believable female voices with ease.
I am looking forward to the next in this series by Tonya Burrows!
ENJOY!🙏🥰

Just didn’t like it.

The narrator had a nice voice but for me I didn’t like his voice for this book. I got about half way through before I called it quits.

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.
