Description

An American diplomat is kidnapped. A former Navy SEAL and the daughter of a notorious Algerian negotiator are sent in to rescue him. What could go wrong?

Former Navy SEAL Jake Williams is the newly appointed head of a task force assigned to rescue a kidnapped American diplomat. Their only hope is Mya Amari, the daughter of a notorious Algerian hostage negotiator, but she is full of secrets and complications - something Jake takes as a personal challenge. As they grow closer, the threat to the mission escalates and time runs out for the hostages. Can Jake unravel the web of deception to save them all without getting caught in the crossfire?

Mya Amari has been in hiding nearly her entire life to escape her father's enemies. But when her sister is kidnapped along with an American diplomat, she'll do anything to bring her home - including walking into the enemy's lair. She doesn't trust anyone, especially the too-handsome-for-his-own-good Commander Williams, but when all her careful plans explode out of control, he's the only one she can turn to with the truth about her family. Is it too little, too late?

Great Suspense Book

I love a good suspence book and this one did not disappoint! It kept you trying to guess what was going to happen next and how they'd get out of the mess they were in. The narrator did a fantastic job! I'll definitely be listening to the next book in the series.

Struggle for Life

This was the perfect amount of suspense for me as all of Ms Bellon's books have been. The setting was a good backdrop to the conflict between the protaganists as they struggled to overcome their antagonist.

Walked extra miles to hear the end!

I love Julie Coulter Bellon’s books. I have read most of them, but I was a little nervous to listen to one because a so so narrator can ruin a good book. No worries here! The narrator did a fantastic job! I usually listen while I exercise, and I walked further than usual to finish the story!

The first book in what promises to be an excellent series!

Story 4 stars: I just finished listening and I feel like I just got back from a good action movie! Filled with feel-good moments, tense moments, chase scenes, secret hideouts and shoot-outs ...all in the country of Algeria.

There are a few culturally educational moments about the food there, but since the characters were in hiding for most of the book, it’s not got a lot of info about the scenery (which is fine).

A good book! I have already recommended it to some friends. I’m also looking forward to getting more into the lives and background of the other characters in Griffin force in the next books in the series.

Narration (4 stars): the narrator did a very good job with the accents: I heard some subtle accents, some more pronounced, all seemed authentic-sounding!

Well-written and well-read!

Good read

This was a good suspenseful romance. I enjoyed the intensity and excitement. But it was also sweet and enjoyable. Worth the read.

Action-packed

Action packed story with lots of twists to the plot. Survival and the need to help others outweigh personal comfort for the main characters.

The Captive: Review

This book was full of tension and great moments that kept me coming back to listen to more. The narrator, Tristan Wright, was FANTASTIC, and I will defiently try to get more books read by him.

Like I said, I kept coming back to the books wanting to know more but by the end I was a little let down. Not because it wasn't written well, which it was, but because the ending didnt surprise me or have any sort of twist. Even with the gun battles and the plans to continue hunting terrorist I felt like it sizzles out a bit.

That being said, I am willing to give the second in the series a try and hope for a couple extra twists to rev up the tension even more.

3/5 Stars

I am a military romance junkie & proud of it

I really enjoyed this book. It was nice to see characters have to build a romance instead of fall into instant love. It was also interesting to learn a little about life in the middle East, and what it must be like for families living there. Who to trust? Trust no one!

Action packed and a romance

I will not summarize this story because it was already given in the description of this book. The purpose of this review was to give potential readers information to make an informed decision about reading/listening to this book.


What engaged me in this story:

• I liked Jake Williams. He was truly a good guy, which he demonstrated through his professionalism, kindness, and thoughtfulness. He made wise decisions. Sometimes he could be brusk. Part of his ex-navy seal persona.
• Mya is a hard character to like. She is hard-headed, stubborn, kind, and sometimes irrational. She is an emotional roller coaster. I found this annoying. Her emotions became smoother as the story progressed making her more likeable by the end.
• The romance between Mya and Jake was believable.
• There were many twists and turns to the plot. Lots of suspense, excitement, and action.
• There were many secondary players in this novel. They were varied, well developed, and interesting. They added depth to the storyline.
• The descriptions of locations and emotions were well done, easy to visualize, and to feel. I felt a part of the scenes.
• The pacing of this story was good. It was not too fast nor too slow.
• There was a smooth, coherent flow to this book. The author was a great writer.
• This was a clean read and I appreciated that.
• The narrator did an excellent job in differentiating the various characters' voices. He had a pleasant voice to listen to.
• Warning: Complicated plot with lots of facts and characters to keep straight. I took notes in the very beginning. But I like complicated.

I was given a free audiobook by the author. My review was voluntary and my opinions were my own. I will be listening to or reading more books by this author. I will also keep a lookout for books narrated by Tristan Wright.

Great adventure

I’m a huge fan of this author and this is the first audiobook I’ve listened to and loved it. The story is fast paced. The narrator does a great job keeping track of everyone and I thought having a man be the narrator for this story was perfect.
