If you are new to the Troubleshooters series, I recommend starting from the beginning. The stories are linked. Sam and Alyssa go way back to the first book, although that one is NOT essential to understand things. BUT you DO need to read "The defiant hero" and "Over the Edge" (in that order) to understand Sam and Alyssa's relationship. Things in this book open your eyes to some of the things that Sam says and does.
I read some of the comments on some of the language thing...interestingly I did not notice the swearing at all the first time I listened to the book because it's Sam! In relistening to the book after reading that comment I did notice the swearing, but that's part of what makes him Sam.
The series is amazing. Some people don't like the multiple stories. It may take a bit to get used to it, but I have come to love it. The action is amazing in most of the books (I have to agree with others on the lack of action plot in #12 - All through the night), but having followed Jules' story throughout all the other books, it was OK. These are romance books with explicit scenes mingled with action. If you don't like either, this is not your kind of book. If you like both (you're probably a Gemini), you are in luck! Best books I have ever read, I can't enough. And I can't wait to hear more about Izzy and Eden, which Suz has promised for next book! I was very surprised when she answered my suggestion on her website within a couple of days!
You would think someone who wrote the book would know how to read it without stopping 3/4 into a sentence as if it were done. Very distracting. Obviously like any author, he is entitled to his opinion, but he sure comes across as someone who was picked last as a kid and is now making a statement because he can. Also the constant referring to a third person as a female is annoying. What is wrong with saying "he or she"? You definitely don't get a sympathy vote from this female. For as much as he talks about the art of connection, he lost me in the first chapter.
Didn't get there...that says it all
He tries not to be monotonous, and runs into fake tones and artificial stops.
It has som interesting points of view that could have been summarized in a blog.
People who like midless and vulgar shows.
It has never been my type of book. The only reason I bought it was because everyone seemed to like it and laugh a lot. I never laughed once. Really terrible!
It is best to have the author read it, especially when it is personal.
The whole book...it would have never seen the light.
I was hoping to get a laugh or something, but it is a mindless wandering of thoughts on how a description can be worst than the previous, and trying to make that pass as art or entertainment. Worthless. Do not spend your money on this.
Again, Suz is amazing in getting you into the head of the characters. The way Suz makes you feel how Jake struggles to let go of Daisy is just incredible. You DO NEED to read "Hawken's Heart" first or you won't understand this book in its depth. I would like to see a bit more of the SEAL action that Suz usually puts in there, but it is great.
I was recommended this book by a friend, who absolutely loved it. I'm sorry, I can't even get to half of it. My main problem is the mile long sentences with multiple ideas. The way the reader is intonating, you can't tell one thing apart from the other. There are so many parentheses and digressions in a sentence to explain some things that the sentences are very difficult to follow. Please, make sure readers intonate correctly where a comma and a period are. I don't know what it looks on the page at all based on the reader. I would like to hear about the stories historic icon Amelia went through, but I just can't...it is not appealing.
Awesome! I had so much fun "reading" this one...I could not put it down. In fact I listened to it twice in 3 days, and I am not an avid reader! Suz writes in such a vivid way that I thought I was in the plot most of the time. Many of the situations were just hilarious.
I got to say, when I first started listening to Patrick Lowler (who makes Suz's books just GREAT to listen to), I kept seeing Decker and Dave (from the Troubleshooter series) in my mind because he used the same voices. It was kind of funny, but it dissapeared within 1 or 2 chapters!
If you have never read Suz's books, be aware of explicit passages.
I have really enjoyed this new twist in Suz's writing - science fiction/paranormal. It is still her writing, but the plots are interesting. I loved it!
The plot is a bit weird. It sometimes skips days, and other times it spends lots of time in a few minutes of interaction. I am used to the Troubleshooter series, that have more action and it flows more.
Although initially it took a while to get used to the multiple story lines, it was really nice the way they were intertwined.
Suz has a way to engage you in the plot. I pretty much listened to the whole book in one session...walking or just on the couch, I couldn't stop. Captivating!
I do have to say that althought Teri and Wolchonock's story is really good (nice to hear that Stan is human), who kept me "at the edge" of my seat was Sam. And Sam caves...
