Out of Control (Troubleshooters #4)
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...more
I really enjoyed this one...very entertaining. I loved the Survivor-esque plot with Navy SEAL Ken “WildCard” Kamody and Miss Prim and Proper Pollyanna Savannah von Hopf roughing it in the jungles of Indonesia, while escaping and evading terrorists and the local warlord. I have to say, Savannah handled traversing rough terrain in bare feet, sleeping in the mud, and eating slugs much better than I would and without complaints. Ken initially thinks she’s a spoiled, uptig...more

The Troubleshooter Series just keeps getting better and better as they progress. I'm hooked. Call me a fan of Brockmann from this moment forward.
“A flying bookstore.” Molly smiled at him. “Be still my heart.”
In Out of Control we are again given not one, not two but three love stories.
Savannah and Ken: Their love affair is like a fire, it's hot and started fast. Ken puts his foot in his mouth for most of the book but he finally comes to his senses and see's what's right...more
The heroine in the story is Savannah Van Hopf who knows Kenny "Wildcard" Karmody from Yale and has had a crush on him ever since. She needs his help as her Uncle Alex has been kidnapped and...more
Book 4 in the Troubleshooter series stars Navy SEAL Ken Karmody, who gets nicknamed as “Wild Card” because of his ability to think out of the box and come out winning however difficult a problem might be. Ken had certainly not led a charming childhood with an emotionally and physically abusive father, which had in the end toughened him up and made Ken determined to do what he wanted in life. Ken is a genius when it comes to computers and whatnot and beneath his tough...more
What can I say? This one was FAB! Loved that there was more of a light-heartedness feel to the book most of the way through. Sure, the situation in the jungle for Ken/Savannah, Alex, Molly/Jones isn't "light-hearted", but there was something other than intense gloom and doom at all times.
I'll have to come back at another time and really review this book... not feeling well today.
I want MORE of Rose's and Hank's story! I always love...more
This pic reminds me of Savannah~she's was a sweetheart~
In Book 1 David and Mallary stole the show(Secondary Romance)
In Book 2 MC's Nils and Meg complety lost the show Sam and Alyssa took it.
In Book 3 Terry and Stan Shared the show with Max, Alyssa and Sam.
In Book 4 MC's SAVANNAH & KEN "WILDCARD' Well this was thier show and IMO NOBODY stole their show.
In This Book~
There was Secondary Romance of Molly and Jones just Wow on them, they were an...more

This one was WildCard Karmody's story with the lovely (albeit quite naive) Savannah vonHopf. Savannah's always had a thing for Wildcard but that isn't the (main) reason why she finds him in San Diego - she needs a favor. Not just a change-my-flat-tire kind of favor, although fabulous man though he is, does that too. She has to go to Indonesia to bail her gr...more
One thing that did aggravate me from time to time was again the female lead thinking she could handle a situation better than a navy seal. Savannah ignores things Ken say...more

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 I read it 7 years ago and it was thoroughly enjoyable all over again when I listened to the audio version recently. Narrator Norma L...more
This is the first time that we hear about David Jones/Grady Morant and Molly Anderson. Also, the subplot or the WWII story was very good and was brilliantly weaved...more
Here's the condensed version.
Ken & Savannah = HOT in the beginning, frustrating in the middle, sweet in the end.
Rose & Hank = Best flashback to WWII in the series. I want to read Rose's book myself.
Molly & Jones = Favorite couple in the series. The back and forth was wonderful.
Few more things to note.
Jones, love him. I want...more
The FBI counterterorism team was seemlessly incorporated with SEAL team 16. The problem with the initial introduction in Over The Edge was that it was bluffing a past history where the groups worked together. It was too introductory, too many new players and dynamics to convincingly be portrayed.
Brockmann is back in control of her Troubleshooters series in Out of Control, featuring no less than 5 romantic entanglements: two main, one historical, one rocky and unresolved l, another b...more
As I said I didn't love him and her so much at the beginning but they sort of grow on me and in the end I loved them so much! Besides I found other characters of this book really good. One of them is Molly who has been left a bit unfinished so I hope to meet her again.
I'm surely in the minority, but I also like the fact that Sam and Alyssa are less predominate in this book. Don't get me wrong, I love their story, and their characters, but it overwhelmed the main story in books 2 and 3 so much that I felt like S & A were the main story and those stories were underdeveloped filler.

WildCard has always had a soft spot for beautiful women. But when he discovers Savannah’s hidde...more
I liked how the encounter between Savannah and Ken Wildcard took place and how it took a few unexpected turns. The morning after questioning by Wildcard of his friends managed to remain quite tactful, though revealing and very funny.
I also really enjoyed the secondary story between Molly and Jones, whose both lives turned to be just a little too much, but not so much that it managed to irrit...more

“You always say the right thing,” Savannah told him, her eyes so filled with love that he almost wept. “Sometimes it takes you awhile to get to it, but you always get there, and what you say is always worth waiting for.”
