Best-selling author Suzanne Brockmann knows how to push the limits of romantic suspense to new, breathtaking heights. Potent, gripping, and explosive, Out of Control is a roller-coaster ride of a novel - as a single act of loyalty becomes a desperate struggle for survival.
Savannah von Hopf has no choice. To save her uncle's life, she goes in search of Ken "WildCard" Karmody, a guy she barely knew in college who is now a military operative. She must convince him to help her deliver a cache of ransom money into the hands of terrorists halfway around the world. What she doesn't expect is to end up in WildCard's arms before she can even ask for his help.
WildCard has always had a soft spot for beautiful women. But when he discovers Savannah's hidden agenda, he is determined to end the affair. Still, Savannah is bound for Indonesia with or without his protection, and he can't just walk away. When her plan goes horribly wrong, they are trapped in the forsaken jungle of a hostile country, stalked by a lethal enemy. As time is running out, they scramble to escape, risking their lives to stop a nightmare from spinning even further out of control.

Take one of the best action-romance authors and pair herin this re-recording with Lawlor and Ewbanks on vocals and you have nothing short of an extraordinary gift.
This is one of the best of the troubleshooters series by Brockmann. Even with the previous poor recording from a few years back, I had listened to it several times. The story, the action and the unique parallel stories running thru the large story arc of the SEAL team 16 are captivating. While we are engaged with the contemporary action romance of Chief Ken Carmody and American aristocrat Savannah Van Hopf, we are drawn into the tale of Savannah's grandmother's--who we will see in several subsequent books--heroism and her own WWII love story. And if that wasn't enough to keep you totally glued, is the story of Dave Jones (grady morant) and the irrepressible and inspirational 40-something missionary Molly. Their own story will come up again in a later book in the troubleshooters series and it will never leave you.
This book gets Five stars for story, romance, action--heck it has it all, and the5-star vocal performance really turns this into a knockout.
Consider this book a great investment--you'll enjoy it the second and third time around. and fourth....
Wildcard and Savannah's makes me laugh out loud. I have read it several times and it never gets old and never ceases to make me laugh. The narrators did an excellent job of bringing Wildcard's craziness to life and it was just plain fun to listen to!
Great writing. The author weaves a tale of many characters expertly. I have found a new favorite series and look forward to reading more .
