Finding a gorgeous - and very naked strange man sleeping beneath her covers was not the welcome-home present Makayla Stiles expected on her return from a business trip. The sexy surprise occupant of her bed turned out to be Blade, step-brother of her roommate and an Army Special Ops soldier intent on making a fresh start. Makayla soon discovered Blade was irresistibly sexy and a man hiding big secrets....
Warning: This is a steamy romance between a young black woman and a gorgeous Army Special Operations soldier. May contain explicit scenes too passionate and hot for some listeners to handle.
I love the story...but the ex girlfriend really pissed me off! OMG! I really wanted her to get beat up or something. I love when Makalya finds Blade in her bed.... naked... so cute... and she is all hypnotized! And Blade... what a name... Then when they have smex! Burke can really write a smex scene... But that ex girlfriend... OMG! Then when the little boy comes into the picture I was so sad for Makalya... This story had so much angst!
The best scene is when Blade finds Makalya in HIS BED! WHAT! (OMG!) BEST SCENCE EVER!
Laramie did an awesome job as usually. Great buy...because it is so cheap... Don't waste credit...just buy... well worth it...

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
If you need a quick listen, this is a good audiobook. It condensed the story well.
How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?
I would like to listen to the story on the long version.
What about Pepper Laramie’s performance did you like?
The narrator did a great job!
Do you think Captivated by the Soldier needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?
I would be interesting to see how the characters evolved, since the story was so short.

Now this is the type of story I expect from Dez. Love the plot and the characters.
First time reading/listening to a book by this author. The story was OK for me. In the beginning I was a bit bored with the story, but it got better as I listened to more. The narration was OK for me, I wasn't too crazy about her male voices. With that being said, I would give both author and narrator another listen. The sex was pretty good.
Short story not bad but wanted more.
Performance was ok
Somethings were a bit cliche. Ha!
But what do you expect from a quick Lit fix?
