Out of Control
Narrated by Norma Lana
Although this is fourth in the Troubleshooters series, Out of Control was my first Brockmann read. I had no difficulty understanding the action or the relationship of the characters and thought it worked well as a stand-alone. This was a Desert Isle Keeper (DIK) for me when I read it 7 years ago and it was thoroughly enjoyable all over again when I listened to the audio version recently. Narrator Norma Lana is pleasant to the ear but I often had difficulty differentiating the hero and heroine’s voices. Therefore, close attention must be paid to the dialogue. However, this did not keep me from enjoying the three love stories intertwined within the book. Ken and Savannah are appealing as the primary leads but it is the secondary romance between earthy Molly and hardened smuggler Jones that spoke more to my romantic side. And, oddly enough, I had less difficulty distinguishing between their voices. With good to average narration and exceptional writing, I give a solid recommendation for Out of Control.
