Publisher's Summary

Love is an act of bravery.

Retired Navy SEAL Alex Rojas is putting his life back together one piece at a time. Being a single dad to his young daughter and working at Hope's Crossing Kennels to help rehab a former guard dog, he struggles every day to control his PTSD. But when Elisa Hall shows up, on the run and way too cautious, she unleashes his every protective instinct.

Elisa's past never stays in her rearview mirror for long, and she refuses to put anyone else in danger. But with Alex guarding her so fiercely yet looking at her so tenderly, she's never felt safer...or more terrified that the secrets she keeps could put countless people in grave peril. The only way for both to fully escape their demons will take the ultimate act of courage: letting go and learning to trust each other.

    THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN MAN AND DOG


    What other book might you compare Ultimate Courage to, and why?

    HERO BOOK ONE AND THREE . THEY ALL TELL A STORY OF MAN AND DOG GOING THROUGH A BIG PROBLEM AND HOW THEY SORT THEM OUT .

    BOTH DANIEL AND KRISTIN ARE GREAT TELLING THESES STORY'S AND WOULD LIKE TO HERE THEM TELL MORE STORY'S


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    THERE IS ALWAYS A MOMENT IN THESE BOOKS THAT MAKE YOU CRY IT MAKES FOR A BETTER BOOK .

    Story
    "Romantic Suspense with Dog(s)"
    What did you like most about Ultimate Courage?

    I really liked the interaction between the people in the story - and with the dogs. All is not rosy-red and people are not perfect.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Atlas the dog is the key character of the book, bringing together the heroine and hero and saving the day again and again!


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

    Mostly, yes.


    Any additional comments?

    The switch between the male and the female narrator is really good. However, the pronunciation of the orders in German should be researched much better, i.e. "Such!" is not pronounced "Sugh" - the "ch" should sound like in "Loch Ness".

    Story
    "Ultimate Courage"

    I'm kind of surprised the dog didn't have more of a role in the story, but I guess an unsocialized dog wouldn't interact with people the same way a normal dog would. That said, I liked the twist on "heroine running from abusive ex" storyline.

    I have a general complaint about "love at first sight" stories. Especially when the woman is emotionally traumatized by her ex. There's no reason the author can't drag it out over months instead of a single week. All I'd need would be a prologue and a heading saying "6 months later". It would be more believable & not take me out of the story everytime it's mentioned the couple has only known each other for a week. 🙄

    Story
    "Love Love Love the Dog"

    While I enjoyed the main characters Alex (dog trainer & single dad) and Eiisa (woman on the run from crazy ex-fiancé), the dog (no idea how to spell his name) and Alex's daughter Boom stole the show.

    There were some issues with the plot (a little too rushed, a few dumb moments) yet overall it was engaging and entertaining. The author is obviously talented so her books should just keep getting better.

    "Why the porn??"

    Good story, but I feel as if the author could have developed the characters better if she didn't spend time writing the porn

    "Great series - love the dogs."
    If you could sum up Ultimate Courage in three words, what would they be?

    Lighthearted, sexy, entertaining


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    I expected more action


    Have you listened to any of Daniel Thomas May and Kristin Kalbli ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    yes. I just wish Daniel would only do the male voices throughout and Kristin only do the female. The female character sounded like a transexual when Daniel Thomas May did her voice. It was weird.

    Story
    "Could have done without the porn."

    I was very disappointed with the narration. When I saw that there was both a man and a woman narrator I thought, wonderful, the woman would do the women's voices and the man would do the men's. No, they just alternated chapters. I do not enjoy that type of narration. That and the porn ruined the book for me. I will not read anymore by this author.
