Some Kind of Hero

Suzanne Brockmann’s successful Troubleshooters series continues with this nineteenth, heavily flawed installment about a Navy SEAL who falls in love with a romance novelist while searching for his recently-motherless and now missing teenaged daughter. It’s an uneven read with some mind-boggling ...

The Unsung Hero

Suzanne Brockmann has been recommended to me by print and audiobook enthusiasts alike. It seems that almost every romance reader I know is a fan of at least one of her books. So, when I learned that The Unsung Hero, book 1 in Ms. Brockmann's wildly popular Troubleshooters series, had been re-release ...

Breaking the Rules

By
Eden Gillman, one of the protagonists in Suzanne Brockmann’s 16th Troubleshooters novel, has had an exceptionally inopportune life. She’s been gang-raped, drugged, groped by every boss she’s ever had, sexually molested by her brother-in-law, assaulted by her step-father, slandered by the creep ...

Breaking Point

Narrated by Patrick Lawlor and Melanie Ewbank Although not one of my favorites in the Troubleshooters series, this is still an entertaining audiobook. But my level of enjoyment was due mostly to the author’s talent rather than the dual narration. Leads Max and Gina are well known to ...

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 ...

Into the Fire

I have been following Brockmann’s Troubleshooters series from the beginning and, for the most part, have thoroughly enjoyed the ride. Into the Fire brings Vinh Murphy out of the darkness in which he’s been hiding since his wife, Angelina, was shot and killed during an assignment in Hot Target. I ...

Into the Storm

As I turned the pages of Into the Storm I found myself missing the author’s grown-up characters from books past – Sam and Alyssa, Kelly and Tom, and Gina and Max (well, the Max of Over the Edge anyway, not the whiny guy he turned into in Breaking Point) – who leave the children featured in thi ...

Breaking Point

Suzanne Brockmann gets Max Bhagat and Gina Vitagliano together in Breaking Point, and ties up some loose ends with Molly and Jones. Jules Cassidy is in the story too, still pining from his break-up with Robin from Hot Target. On the whole I enjoyed the book, but a few pin-pricks kept it from being a ...

Hot Target

There don’t seem to be too many people who feel lukewarm about Suzanne Brockmann; either you love her or you hate her. I love her; I think she’s the most consistently entertaining romance author around. That’s not to say that I think her books are flawless. Hot Target is a good example of a Br ...

Flashpoint

Have you given up Brockmann? Flashpoint, a definite departure in terms of style, might just be the book to win you back. If you are one of the many readers who didn't appreciate the multiple plotlines, World War II subplots, or recurring characters, you just might want to give this one a try. Brockm ...
