Publisher's Summary

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?

Suspenseful drama

I don’t read this genre very often, so I’m struggling with this review. I gave it 4 stars because it held my attention and was fast paced. I don’t like talking politics and terrorist subjects, reading it was hard. I didn’t really connect with the characters either. There wasn’t a lot of depth in the main characters development. I would give it 3.5 stars. For those that enjoy this style of storyline, I would recommend giving it a try. I’m always intrigued with narrators ability to change character voices so quickly. This narrator did a good job at that.

Action and some romance

The Captive is a clean, high drama, military romance. The plot twists kept me enthralled in this fast paced book. The characters and their relationships within the team were interesting and added another layer of intrigue. Well written and very nicely narrated. I enjoyed his performance and differentiations between characters.

A MUST to listen or read!!

I absolutely loved this book!! ONE AWESOME WHIRLWIND!!! Tristan Wright did a phenomal job narrating this book. This was a fantastic story involving SpecOps! Great mixture of character development, mystery, and action. Takes readers on an emotional and highly compelling journey. I can't wait to read the next installment of Griffin Force. Highly recommend listening (or reading if audiobooks aren’t your thing).

Compelling adventure. Some surprises. The story fulfilled its purpose, but left one ready and eager for the next one with these characters. Thanks to the author for providing a copy for my voluntary review.

Edge of the sit story

Suspenseful, riveting and explosive story where friendships are tested and romance is under fire!
It is filled with twists, turns, and danger; the tension rises with every chapter.

Another great one by Julie Bellon

Jake, a former special forces commander is tasked to protect Mya, daughter of an Algerian negotiator who is trying to secretly save her sister. Life will never be the same as these to find that fighting a common enemy rather than each other.

I am really enjoying the way Julie Bellon puts a story together! Her characters are great and the plot feels like a great movie! Tristan is a great narrator and one of the rare male narrators who do great female voices!

I was given this review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Exciting adventure and a whole lot breath holding!

I loved the action, characters and the amazing job Tristan Wright did narrating this story! Ms. Coulter Belton puts you right in the thick of things and with her talent with a pen you feel a part of chaos, struggles, firefights and snark!! Can't wait to read/listen to more of her books!
