Publisher's Summary

When Alessandra Lamont is nearly blown to pieces in a mafia hit, the last thing she wants is to place her trust into the hands of sexy, loose-cannon federal agent Harry O'Dell, who'll do whatever it takes to bring the mob down - even if it means sticking like glue to this blonde bombshell who unwittingly married into it.

She needs him if she wants to stay alive, and he needs her if he is to exact his revenge for the death of his wife and son. But staying alive is nothing next to the explosive attraction that threatens to consume them both - and places them into the greatest danger of all...falling in love.

©1999 Suzanne Brockmann; (P)2008 BBC Audio

    Story
    "akward early effort"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I am a big fan of Brockmann's other books -- especially the last five or so SEAL Team series. On that basis, I thought I'd try this novel, one of her early (earliest?) efforts. Everybody starts somewhere, after all.

    This is not a bad novel, but it is awkward and strained in tone, and the characters are less well rounded than those in later books. The narrator handled all the different regional and social dialects well.

    Somehow it just didn't gel for me.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Hmmm. I'd rather see Izzy Zanella on a big screen, I think.

    Story
    "The Bimbo and The Grouch"

    I took a chance on this older novel since I have enjoyed other Suzanne Brockmann books. Well I lost and wasted 3 hours before giving up.

    First there was the blond bimbo who was too literally too stupid to live (when a mafia killer threatens your life don't stand there being an easy target). She was more concerned with her name than her safety, her clothes than survival.

    Then there's the grumpy hard ass FBI agent who continues to work relentlessly to catch killers and ignore his 2 living children. Yes, it was sad that his oldest son was killed but I would think that he would value time with his remaining kids even more.

    Since I didn't like either of the main characters, I found the story boring & annoying.

    Story
    "Not good but not bad"
    Would you try another book from Suzanne Brockmann and/or Carrington MacDuffie?

    This book was so-so, I will try another of her books. However if it stinks then she's toast in my book.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Really liked the ending, it had a bad start but half-way thru really got into it.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Hated the accents. Harry sounded like a slow-witted jack ass.

    Story
    "Oldie but Goodie! Surprisingly good book."

    This is my first Suzanne Brockmann book. I started it without much expectation, but Brockmann is an author of true skill, with an unique style that I enjoyed more than I expected. I have gotten sick of stories with exaggerated drama and murder plots. However, this was a very good suspense novel with many characters that were interesting. It wasn't forced.
    Recommended especially for fans of Linda Howard ,Sandra Brown and JD Robb.
