The Admiral's Bride (Tall, Dark & Dangerous #7)
His mission was to pretend that Zoe Lange, beautiful young scientist-- nearly half his age!-- was his new bride. Former Navy SEAL Jake Robinson was sure that his romantic years were behind him, but for God and for country, he would look into Zoe's beautiful dark eyes, kiss her senseless, hold her as if he would never let her go... and then, when the job was done, do just t...more
What a great addition to the Tall Dark & Dangerous series this turned out to be. I would have to say that THE ADMIRAL'S BRIDE is one of the better (best?) from the series so far and the reason why all stems from its absolutely sigh-worthy hero (and some damn sexy shower scenes) With this 7th addition we get 53 year old Admiral Jake Robinson’s story and who knew I’d end up having a thing for...more
So Idk why but I had the craving for a b ook tha had a May-December romance. I stumbled upon this book by Suzanne Brockman where the insanely attractive Admiral Jake is 24 years senior to the heroine. He is 54 and she is turning 30. Anywho, who cares because his body is hard as steel and he's in better shape them some 21 year olds. The heroine Zoe, however, can hold her own. Having her PhD and being t...more

Maybe 3.5* Good solid story, with some twists and turns that take it above the "business as usual" for series romance. Brockmann does a great job with Jake's confused feelings. That was the best part of the book, in fact. Zoe is a likeable character as well, and although there is some lack of communication between them, it feels right for the story and the characters, so...more
Und zwar kennt der Leser, der Reihe, den Protagonisten Jake bereits aus dem Vorband "Crash". Jake trat dort schon sehr oft und intensiv auf, da er wie ein Vater für Crash ist und dort lernte der Leser auch Jakes Frau Daisy kennen. Wer Band sechs gelesen hat weiß, dass es sehr emotional zugeht und Daisy zum schluss um ihr Leben und gegen ihre Krankheit kämpft und verliert.
Deshalb war ich etwas skeptisch, als ich gelesen...more
BUT right after the 1st couple of pages I totally forgot that Jake was in his early 50s and Zoe made it completely easy to think that Jake was the most handsome man on the planet. I really liked that she acknowledged the other pretty boys, but directly decided that Jake was the guy. Okay, she maybe worshiped him a...more
I've been on an RS (rom suspense) binge the last few weeks. I've got a few Brockmann's in my Kindle and paperback TBR piles. Despite the great reviews this book got, I seriously questioned why this was in my archive.
Go ahead and judge me, but I find May-December romances somewhat icky. My prejudice comes from seeing 70+ widower grandpa manipulated into marrying his 20-something nurse. His assets ended up being bestowed on her own children (previous...more
I found the scene where Jake and Zoe were talking about the adrenaline rush of going on missions a little forced. I needed more than words to believe that they had this in common. I guess what I'm t...more
You have a Navy Seal Admiral, who has been in the Navy for 30 years or so. In his 50's he is a strong, virile man who has lost his...more
I could not put this one down. I've been really craving an older man-younger woman romance and this one fit the bill nicely.
A very dangerous chemical called Triple X has been stolen. Zoe is brought in (along with other military people) to be a part of getting T-X back. Jake is the team leader.
Jake Robinson is in his early fifties, still in fantastic shape, and hasn't lost his edge. In his earlier days he has saved hundreds of men including Zoe's father during Nam. Zoe is in her late tw...more
I found myself pleasantly surprised by this book. I don't imagine that I expected to enjoy it as much as I did. Oftentimes, I read romance with the expectation of feeling like it was a 3 star book. Granted, half a star bump isn't that much but to me, it felt like that. This was due to the fact that I felt like I was reading something different - an age gap of 24 years romance. It worked for me! I thought that the author had handled the age difference rather well. At least, I thought it...more
Admiral Jake Robinson has always been the SEAL who lived by the motto of "leave no man behind." As far back as the Vietnam War, there have been "Jake's Boys" -- soldiers rescued because of the personal efforts of Jake Robinson. Now, he's been assigned to infiltrate a religious cult and recover six canisters of a devastatingly lethal nerve gas.
His partner undercover is Dr. Zoe Lange, who just s...more
This is my first non-Diana Palmer read with a much older hero/younger heroine (24 years). I have to say I loved it. It was very very believable in terms of the romance and the way our hero was concerned about not only the age difference but about his former wife (deceased) and his feelings about that relationship. Would it be cheating to fall in love again? Could he fall in love again? SHOULD he fall in love again?
Former SEAL and Navy Admira...more
Age is just a number!
Hero – Admiral and War Hero
Heroine – Beautiful Weapons Expert
Undercover assignment – Pretend to be a married couple
The age difference was handled well by Ms Brockmann and the suspense was great!
Had me glued to my seat and I couldn’t finish it fast enough.
