As the attraction between Sam and Alyssa heats up again, neither can predict just how deadly hot this situation is about to become.

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!
Tom and Kelly's wedding
When Sam and Alyssia finally got back together.
Fast paced; action filled and sexy.
Susanne Brockmans' characters are complex and interesting. The reader cares what happens to them and they feel like they are friends. Fast paced and very sexy.
I love love love this book, I'd previously read it in paperback and loved it then but this was awesome!! Mizz Brockmann is a master of the Seal tale and I love them all this one by far the best tough. I do wish that they would have had a male and female Narrator for the opposing parts but hey that's just me Ms Hazlett did a fantastic job and I love the Texas drawl....sounds so much like home here in NC that its scary.
I kept listening and listening and waiting for the story to develop. Lots of sexial small talk and provacative situations but the story is just so terribly slow in developing.
Having been in the Navy myself, some of the details surrounding how Navy personnel tlak and act are far, far off.
Gave up on the book after 6 hours of listening.
Get to the point. Keep the story moving. Don't go on about senseless detail.
Yawn. Next book.
The story was really good and I enjoyed every minute of it. I am an espionage fan as well as adore the stories of our military and those who keep us safe. Ok, I'm a romantic at heart, but get a real kick out of thrillers too. The narrator, Deborah Hazlett, was superb. Thank you for bringing the characters to life as you did.
A better writer.
Simplistic romance novel. Not a great mystery.
I think the writing is the problem, so the narrator didn't have much to work with.
I didn't finish it. It bored me.
I wish there were a way to screen out romance books.
If you are interested in a good mystery forget this book. It's all about the characters sex lives and very graphic at that. The mystery was lame and a side story. As far as the narration, it wasn't too bad except where Sam was concerned. This hulking navy seal sounded like a southern deb.That was extremely disconcerting !
She did a decent job
This book was really all about foul language and sex....and not in any sort of good way. The story line was awful. Not really sure why I finished it.....
Don't waste your time or your $5.00
More plot and less repetition about the same events, i.e. Sam and Alysse in bed
Don't think so.
Say something about yourself!
Thank goodness I got this one on a $4.95 sale and didn't use a credit. This book is totally ridiculous. There may be a suspense story in there somewhere but it gets lost with the trite, continuous and tacky romance themes. I'm all about a good love/sex scene but these are laughable! I would recommend this book for someone under 25 who still thinks what the author describes is humanly possible. I thought I could just read through the 'encounters' but they just take over the story. Definitely no recommendation from me.
