Summary

Matthew "Wolf" Steel hated flying commercial. Luckily his job as a Navy SEAL meant he didn't have to do it very often. He'd been unlucky enough to be assigned a middle seat on the cramped jet, but fortunately for him, the woman next to him was willing to switch seats with him. Hoping for a relaxing flight, Wolf was pleasantly surprised at the good conversation and sense of humor the woman had as they flew 36,000 feet over the countryside. When Caroline boarded the plane to Virginia to move across the country for her new job she never expected to be seated next to the hottest guy she'd ever seen. She also never expected he'd be so easy to talk to. She knew he'd never be interested in talking to her if he hadn't been trapped in the seat next to her, but it was a nice way to spend a long plane ride. Neither Wolf nor Caroline were prepared for a terrorist hijacking of their plane, but if Caroline thought that would be the last time she'd see, or need, Wolf, she'd be sorely mistaken.

Repeatetive, bad case of bad writing.

Struggled to finish wincing at phrases not only lifted from worst Harlequins but repeated and repeated all over. Not a bad story but badly written.

Love finds a way

I had forgotten I had purchased this book previously, but need something to listen to while I painted my deck. I thoroughly enjoyed the reading. The story was fast moving with plenty of action. Since I was outside I was glad there was not and dialogue I would be embarrassed for my neighbors to hear. By evening, I was so enjoying the story I didn't watch TV which I normally do and settled into bed listening to the rest of the story. This had made me a true believer in the fun of audible books.

Excellent book!

This book is awesome!! There was the right amount of balance between suspense and romance to hold my interest all the way through. There were no slow spots, and no boring spots. The story line is really interesting. I wish I was as brave as Carolina!
The reader has a really nice voice, and she did a nice job at changing her tone for each person.

Different.

The romance here is solid and the story-ride enjoyable. Eventually. Meaning, it took a while for this book to get on with it: first there was a fair bit of background given in the beginning about each character (and not just the hero and heroine’s background); second there was a lot of internal monologue and internal dialogue before the hero and heroine spoke to each other. That waiting time was a bit long for me. But once they officially met, the suspense element of the story was off and running and action-packed.

The novel is the first in a series but a stand-alone. You are introduced to the hero “Wolf” and his team of SEALs and you get to know them well in this book because sometimes the story switches to individual team members’ points of view in addition to the hero and heroine’s points of view (all in third person). Those SEAL team members will appear as the hero in their own books. They are admirable men and easy to like.

This book was different to anything I’ve ever read before because I didn’t expect the heroine to suffer the way she did (though not in a sexual way). It was brutal.

This story was light and simple and I enjoyed it even if it did have some dark and heavy terror, because I was prepared to suspend my disbelief. The falling-in-love part was sweet in the dangerous atmosphere. Towards the end I had a physical reaction to the emotional pain the protagonists experienced and that is what I WANT to feel when reading romance. It means I care about the characters. And that's good. But this novel didn't make my heart leap or my breath stutter. So it's 3 stars for me because the romance is nice, and mostly enjoyable.

The narrator was fine, but not my favourite.

Great action, average romance

I thought the action part of the plot was well done and the beginning of the romance was somewhat intriguing. Somewhere around the middle, the romance kind of fizzled out for me. I felt like the connection building between 2 main characters stopped as the action revved up.

My Musings

Plot: 5 Stars

Narration: 4 Stars

Writing: 3 Stars

Editing: 1 Star

What a mixed bag. There were many things to like about this book. The plot was action-packed, the SEALs were awesome. I even enjoyed the heroine, even if she was a bit too down on herself.

The problem lies in the writing, but primarily the editing. Some examples are: the author uses proper names too much. She used Caroline well over 500 times, and between Wolf and Matthew, well over 700. Ms. Stoker switches POV from one sentence to another, which makes it extremely difficult to keep track. The good news is she writes fantastic suspense scenes that kept me reading on. Another issue was, in the beginning, there is quite an information dump. The story should have started when the hero and heroine meet on the plane. She also made it confusing when she had Caroline insisting on calling the SEALs by their given name instead of their SEAL handle. I could understand why she wanted the heroine to call the hero Matthew, but not the rest of them

If you are able to overlook the technical issues, you will enjoy this clean, action-packed romance with great chemistry between Wolf and Caroline. I know I certainly did. Happy reading!

Invisible or invincible.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, I am personally a fan of SEAL stories. I love the team work, and yeah, sexy guys are always great to read and dream about. This one has the excitement, the great guys, however, the woman is very different. She's never noticed, she's not special or stand out but she is if you take the time to know her. Wolf does.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Ice/Caroline. Her attitude was different and she needed what these guys offered.

What about Stella Bloom’s performance did you like?

It was a good credible performance.

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

Yes

Any additional comments?

Why would the bad guys go after an ordinary woman like Caroline? Why would the drop your drawers sexy guys want Caroline? How does a chemist play such an important role? And most of all, can she believe in herself as much as this team believes in her? A different SEAL story with an ordinary woman as the bravest of them all.

Wonderful story!

I've just discovered this author and really enjoyed this book. It had everything I like in a book - action, intrigue, romance, wonderful characters and a plot which moves steadily along making it difficult to do anything but keep going, anxious for what's next. ( I listened in one sitting!). I'm delving into the next book right away!
