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

When I consider a series, I am one of those readers that needs to start with the first story. Rarely -and I actually have a tag for this- do I reveal a book is fine as a standalone. That said, Ms. Brockmann used multiple characters from previous narratives with The Troubleshooters. When I began, and having not read the first three books, I considered (I didn't actually do it) looking for a notebook to write down who was involved ...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
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
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
Each book in this series just gets better and better.
Highly recommend ...more
It's not the poor man's fault. He's a likeable enough techno geek wrapped in a badass Navy Seal package, and the narrative following his trip to Indonesia with heiress (and former college acquaintance) Samantha von Hopf to deliver a ransom for her uncle is full of action and humor and (of course) romance. But Kenny, sadly, is just not my thing.
Heinrich von Hopf and David Jones, however, are exactly my cuppa, so I read this one mor ...more

In August 2013, I shared with readers my all time favorite print romances. Number four on that list was Out of Control, the fourth entry to the Troubleshooter (TSS) series. Winning the 2002 Best Romance and Best Hero awards here at AAR, I recall being amazed at Brockmann’s storytelling and I simply loved this book that features more than one rom ...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

Este es el primer libro de Suzanne Brockmann que leo y no va a ser el último. Como poco es original, a saber, aparte de la pareja protagonista (Kenny y Savannah), el libro va contando otras dos historias diferentes, y una tercera un poco más de lejos (la que menos me gustó). Al principio choca un poco ir siguiendo cada una de ellas, pero he de reconocer que enseguida enganchan, están perfectamente diferenciadas y están perfectamente entrelazadas. Una de las historia está ambientada ...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
So far my favorite of this series. All the storylines are well done. There are a lot of characters and a lot going on, but it's smooth transitioning between the different story's and doesn't seem jumpy or overdone.
I loved how the WWII story was a book written by one of the characters that the others were reading throughout the book. This author does a great job of pulling me into the story. I can't wait to read more of this series.
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.
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.

“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.”
