Suspense & Steam

Survive the Fall is the first book in the Dark Eagle series and utterly enjoyable romantic suspense. The storyline is engaging, loaded with romance, drama, suspense, and steam. The characters are fabulous and intriguing. Kelsey is crushed by the loss of her father and brother in a terrorist attack. She is to determine to get revenge by destroying the terrorist. She seeks help from Adam, an ex-Army Ranger. Their attraction to each other is undeniable, and the chemistry is off-the-charts.

Jill Smith did a fantastic job with the narration; I thoroughly enjoyed her performance. Survive the Fall is an excellent intro to the series with great character and plot development. I highly recommend this audiobook. I was given a free copy of this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this unbiased review.

Life's Survival

I really enjoyed this book. There was no overtones of "me man - you woman = must listen." Sure, strong willed and intelligent Kelsey is a computer person with no military training she brings these skills to the relationship which compliments what Adam, former Army Ranger with PTSD provides. After Kelsey loses her entire family the mutual understanding and respect is shown through in the relationship Kelsey and Adam begin to build.

While in real life not all relationships happen quickly (some do), I could see how the relationship and respect Adam and Kelsey progressed and provided the support each other needed in the loss they both suffered.

I especially like the way the story ended in helping others and where it will lead. This is a quick HEA story, but I'm looking forward to the next audible - "Live Past the Edge" to see how they the characters help each other moving forward.

Jill Smith did a fantastic job narrating this story helping you grasp and empathize with the individual characters as they struggle, find peace and love....and not necessarily in that order.

Steamy Romantic Suspense!

Survive the Fall is everything I love in a listen. It's romantic suspense, well developed characters and just enough steam! This is my first book by Julia Bright, and I hope it is not my last! Kelsey has just lost all of her loved ones, and seeks refuge in a one night stand. Adam is trying to adjust to civilian life after serving his country and dealing with PTSD. This unlikely couple meets and the chemistry is off the charts. When Kelsey begins a trek on a dangerous journey, Adam turns up to keep her safe. Will he be able to or is she in over her head? This story has so many great elements packed into it. Both characters are intense and interesting, but have deep flaws. I love that in a story, not having perfection always makes the story more real. Their mission is one we can all relate to, and as the story unfolds, and we meet different characters, it's hard to know who to trust and who is not. It's extremely well thought out, very suspenseful and full of romance and passion.

Jill Smith delivers a wonderful narration for this story. Her voice is one I could listen to regularly, with easy to distinguish voices, the perfect pacing and the inflection of fear, determination and love that is evident just from her performance. I really enjoyed this book and look forward to the next in the Dark Eagle series.

Great Story & Listen!🎧 4.5 Fabulous Stars🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

I thoroughly enjoyed “Survive The Fall”, the story is well written and well told, it captures your attention right from the start to the very end. The storylines are interesting and original with lots drama, action, suspense and romance. The lead characters, Kelsey and Adam are broken from loss and PTSD. I liked the chemistry between the two, their 1st encounter was hot. I liked Adam’s protective nature and Kelsey’s determination for revenge. Great plotting by the author, if only revenge in real life could work out as their operation did. This is a great start to a series, they make a great team. I am looking forward to Jackson’s story, love his personality and sense of humor. Julia Bright, thank you for the great story.

I listened to the Audible edition, Jill Smith does a terrific job narrating and telling the story. She brings the characters to life and entertains the listeners. Thank you for the great listen.

Thank you 🎧AudiobookObsession

Heartache, love & suspense

Doing the right thing in the name of heartache is a hard decision. I loved the relationship between the 2 main characters. I liked the balance between the love story, the mystery and the suspense. I will definitely continue with this series.

Superb listen

Survive the Fall was the first book I've experienced by Julia Bright. What I liked about it most was that it was different from any other "military guy leaves the army and starts his own security business" book I've read - and trust me I've read quite a few. I loved that as a reader I got to be there when the idea of doing something good and helpful formed for the first time in the back of the characters' minds. It was great to see how this idea took root and started to build up from the ground with the potential to grow to something really noble. I liked the characters, the passion they showed in anything they did, be it mending fences on a ranch or investigating bad guys. I loved their communication, there wasn't unnecessary drama but openness and honesty. Kelsey and Adam had great chemistry and even though they started out as a nameless one night stand fate had other plans for them. Fortunately.

I loved Jill Smith's narration. She did a superb job. I loved her voices. I enjoyed how clear she sounded and the high quality of the recording. She brought the characters to life and made a good story even better.

really enjoyable listen

This was a new to me author and narrator. I enjoyed both. The story moves along nicely. Both Kelsey and Adam have experienced heavy losses, and are both broken. I love following the story to its conclusion, and constantly wishing that Kelsey and Adam are able to heal each other so they can get their HEA. All in all, a really enjoyable listen that flowed well and kept me engaged.

the rancher and her body guard

Kelsey has just lost her father and brother in a terrorist attack, while vacationing in Europe. In an attempt to bury her grief, Kelsey goes to a bar and has a one night stand with a guy she calls Brick. As if her life wasn't tanking enough, her grandfather...the only living relative left...dies the week of the funeral for her father and brother. Kelsey resolves to get revenge on the man who planned the attack, and now she has resources since it turns out the her grandfather was wealthy. Using her technology background, Kelsey has tracked down the terrorist master mind and has made plans to travel to Algeria to take him out. She needs to hire a bodyguard to travel to the country where women do not travel alone. Her security guy is none other than her one night stand...Adam aka Brick. The pair travel to Algeria, where Adam ends up committing the act for Kelsey. Upon returning to the USA, the pair begin to explore the mutual attraction. However, it appears that someone is sabotaging Kelsey's ranch. In addition, an FBI agent appears to suspect Kelsey and Adam's involvement in the terrorist's murder. This book is jam packed with action, as well as hot, steamy moments. Kelsey, Adam and one of Adam's former military buddies agree to create an agency of sorts, to help fight crime. This is a great beginning to the series.
I accepted a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
