Summary

Levi Butcher is singularly devoted to his work. As team leader for the GO-Team, his unwavering focus is on the mission. Levi knows all too well that one minor distraction can hold deadly consequences. But with the soothing, sensual voice of 'Babe', the team's communication expert, constantly in his ear, keeping his concentration on the dangerous work at hand is becoming extremely difficult. 

Jina Modell definitely doesn't feel like a 'Babe', especially when she's working with the gruff, no-nonsense Levi. When the base where she's stationed is attacked, Jina manages to escape - but the rest of the team, working some distance away, is exfiltrated, thinking Jina died in the explosion and leaving her stranded. 

To survive, she's got to figure out how to get back to safety before she's discovered by the enemy. Levi would never willingly leave a soldier behind, especially a brave woman whose sweet voice haunts his every thought. Once he discovers Jina is alive, the tenacious warrior will walk into fire to save this intriguing woman who has captured his heart.

Tortuously Slow Disappointing 4 Linda Howard fans

Linda Howard is one of my all time favourite authors. But this book (as an audio book) is not up to her normal compelling and riveting standards. It might get a pass as a print book - maybe. It was tortuously slow and highly predictable. When you give away the punchline in the title and synopsis - its disappointing that it takes more than half a book to get to the punch line - i.e. the woman left behind. The storyline was marginally plausible - an analyst being trained to work in covert and hostile territory - really! - it makes a bit of a farce for those in the armed forces who train for years. The only reason I got to the end of the book is I left it on as background noise while doing some household chores.

AWFUL!!!!

I didn't like this book and REALLY struggled to finish it. As a matter of fact I only finished it because I am so anal that I would have wondered for a while how things all came together.

Spoilers - more than half the book is centered on the training Jina received just to run a drone on the go team missions. REALLY!!!!! I mean get on will it how much running, jumping and push ups do you think we need to read about?? The main characters barely talk or have ant interaction so how do the possibly fall in love. when they finally get together (second to last chapter) does Linda think that the sex makes up for the lack of interaction between them through out the entire story line?

The title is not even fitting Girl Left Behind my eye!!!! She wasn't left at least not in my opinion. The storyline would have been so much better if she had spent less time talking about training and more time developing a plot where Jina was truly left and Levi really had to go find and rescue her. I mean a true rescue not running to meet her two seconds before the rest of the team flies out on the rescue helicopter.

Then to add insult to injury the narrator has to be in the top three of the worst ever - can I say boring, monotonous, lack of expression, no animation the list can go on and on. Don't was your money or credit on this. I really didn't like this book!
