But then, while in New Yor ...more

Recommends it for: Fans of hot romantic suspense
Loved it! I'm doing a happy dance here, because I'm already anticipating the next book in the 'Troubleshooters' series. Ms. Brockmann left a couple of storylines wide open in this one, but said in her author's notes that she will be following up on those couples who haven't gotten their HEAs in this one. I guess maybe they haven't suffered enough yet, but that's okay because one of the couples is Izzy (who used to irritate me) and Eden, and the other is Eden's brother Dan (Gillman) and brand new ...more

Troubleshooters Team Leader Alyssa Locke thinks her next assignment is going to be a piece of cake. She, along with some Navy Seal friends who are currently on leave, are traveling to New York City to teach self-defense to an Assemblywoman and her staff who have been receiving threatening letters. Alyssa has even asked her husband Sam to go with her and bring their eight-month-old son as a sort of working vacation. But there is no vacation when dead bodies start turning up outside of the Assembl ...more
5 stars – Romantic Suspense

This features one of my top favorite romantic heroes and all-time favorite romantic duos, Sam Starrett (aka Hot Cowboy Dad) and Alyssa Locke) from Gone Too Far, as one of the story's two main profile couples, which made me all kinds of tickled pink! Sam and Alyssa are now happily married with an active 10-month-old bundle of joy, son Ashton, and are trying to juggle and balance the 'married with a kid' life with the demands of their stressful, dangerous careers as agen
Rating: 2.5 / 5

I had a tough time deciding what to rate this book. My opinion of it seemed to go back and forth. So in the end, I settled for middle ground at 2.5 stars.

In this fifteenth installment of the Troubleshooters, author Suzanne Brockmann brings two past characters back into focus: Sam & Alyssa, along with a host of other recurring characters.

The Troubleshooters and a few moonlighting SEALS from Team 16 travel to NYC to help Assemblywoman Maria Bonavita with security measures sinc

Overall a great reunion book staring many fan favorites. You get a romantic suspense story that includes a blossoming new romance featuring Dan Gilman, plus a super-sized eeeeeeeeevil villian that hides in plain sight, and the brilliant sleuthing and lots of tender moments between Sam/Alyssa and Jules/Robin.

First off, who is in this book? This book reunites fans with Sam, Alyssa, their 10-month old son Ash, Jules, Robin, Izzy, Danny G, Jose 'Jay' Lopez, and Tony (the new gay SEALs team member.)

An "easy" assignment & a mini-vacation turn into a desperate search for a serial killer when Sam & Alyssa, with baby Ash in tow, head to NYC. Alyssa has been asked to teach some self-defense classes to a newly elected congresswoman who is receiving threatening notes - piece of cake, right? While there, she plans to enjoy some get down and dirty time with her sexy husband, Sam. But things are never that simple, are they? As dead bodies begi

*** 2.5 Stars ***


Let me start by saying that I loved the opportunity to catch up with Sam, Alyssa, Jules, and Robin. They are still some of my favourite characters from any M/F series ever, so getting to see how far their relationships and lives have come over the last eight or nine novels was lovely. I also thought that the suspense angle of the book was pretty well written - it certainly kept me guessing at The Dentist's identity until the very end (so many red herrings and likely suspect
More maniacal than a James Bond Villain. Able to convince himself that his prey desire death by his hand. He's insane! He's obsessed! It's the Dentist! The Dentist has plotted and committed multiple murders across the country in an effort to bring TSI's number two into range so that he can fulfill "her" ultimate desire and raise her son as his own. Not likely with the delectable Sam Starrett and some of SEAL team sixteen's finest looking out for each other and Alyssa Locke Starrett is definitely ...more

I really had resigned myself to not liking this book. There have been so many negative reviews and longtime Brockmann fans have criticized it (and her), especially after she didn't write the Dark of Night (Dave/Sophia/Decker) storyline/romance the way people expected. And while I have loved all of the Troubleshooters book, I am a romance fan first and foremost, and her books are high on intensity and suspense and sometimes lacking in romance. This one was no different. In fact, aside from a love ...more
I absolutely loved the latest in the Troubleshooters series. You get to catch up with many of your favorite past characters and there are a few new characters thrown in the mix as well.

Jules/Robin had me cracking up at several points in the book. Alyssa/Sam still have their dream relationship in check and it's great seeing them as parents to little Ash. We get to also catch up with Izzy and all he's going through with Eden. Then there is the romance between Dan Gillman and Jenn. I loved their r
When your main new romantic pairing involves a guy, Dan Gillman, who had this to say:

"You find the, I don't know, the chunky girl with the really pretty friends...She's low maintenance and low drama, plus she's wired to believe you're too good to be true. She expects to be dumped, so when you do it, she let's go immediately."

it's pretty much hard to work up much enthusiasm for said pairing, despite all subsequent protestations of affection. After all, he's still the guy jerky enough to put th

Fantastic book and great characters, per ush. I love this series so much and these characters are so familiar, it's like hearing your friends tell you how they met and all the adventures they've had together..... except they were in mortal danger and prevented horrible things from happening. Alyssa and Sam are awesome, and Jules and Robin are simply amazing. Jules' and Robin's relationship gives me peace. It's like some of my friends' marriages- with some couples, not all, I feel like they are g ...more

Suzanne Brockmann always writes fantastic characters, and I love her dialogue because it sounds exactly like people actually talking. Her last few books have been really pushing the bar higher for excellent fiction. Perhaps that is why this book fell a little flat for me. It was still a great book, but not quite up to her normal standards.

First, Brockmann usually pushes her political agenda in books, but she does it in the context of the story. In this book, she spends a little too much time on

I don't have a whole lot to say about this book unfortunately.

Mostly it was very disappointing. I'm not sure I think it was a great idea to revisit Sam and Alyssa in a MC capacity. I think I would have enjoyed it more if it had been more secondary. The thing is, even though I HATED Gillman, I cared more about his story in this one than I did about the Sam/Alyssa story. Every time it was pulled away from Gillman and back to The Dentist I wanted to put the book down and do something else. Any read

This book was merely just okay. I honestly didn't think the suspense plot was well put together. I figured out who the culprit was about halfway through the book and kept waiting for it to actually get suspenseful. It never did.

And WTH was up with the whole Dan and Jenn thing? What an asshole Dan is! I got to the point where the minute the pages turned to their story, I flipped right through it without reading a word. I understand a book dedicated to them will be forthcoming. Well that's one I
2.5 stars... Oh it pains me to write that. I really didn't like this book at all. I was looking forward to more Alyssa and Sam moments and there we're those but the rest was left me wanting more. Almost like Brockmann had too many story lines going on to really focus my attention on one couple.

I did enjoy reading about Danny Gillman changing and seeing him in a new light. He still had his moments that had me shacking my head and rolling my eyes.

Izzy... he was there too. What a cutie and I canno

I loved this book. I loved revisiting Sam and Alyssa after all this time.
I especially appreciated, on a personal level, reading about Alyssa trying to juggle breastfeeding and her job. That struck home for me.

I also like how there were lots of probable suspects for the big bad guy. I figured it out, but there were definitely other possibilities.

I also love the non-resolution of the Jen/Danny relationship. That struck me as true to life. And it makes me look forward to the next book. . .although
In the back of Flashpoint published in 2004, there is a short story that first introduces us to Alyssa' Locke's pursuit of the serial killer known only as The Dentist. At the end of the short story he gets away and that left the door open to the possibility that we'd not seen the end of that particular character.

Well fast forward to 2009 and we get Hot Pursuit. A full on suspense thriller/mystery story that focuses on Alyssa's - Hot Pursuit -- of The Dentist.

RECOMMENDED FOR: Troubleshooter fans, Sam & Alyssa fans, Jules & Robin fans, and Izzy fans

OK, so this wasn't my favorite book... there's a lot good in it and about it. But I've never been a Dan Gillman fan, and he didn't impress me in this book AT ALL. Plus, I'd somehow missed "The Dentist" short at the end of "Flashpoint", so I didn't have any bearing going into this book.

I also wasn't thrilled with Alyssa. We *know* that Alyssa is a capable woman and a great team leader. But we
Short Review: Hot Pursuit t is the latest book in the Troubleshooter series. For me that was enough to go out and buy the book. What? That’s not enough for you? OK then, read the long review.

Long Review: I’ve made no secret of the fact that I’m a huge fan of Suzanne Brockmann’s romantic suspense books, particularly her Troubleshooter Series. I will also say that while I eagerly await each new book in the series (I purchase the hard covers), I read each book with extremely high expectations and h

This one was kind of a disappointment. Maybe I had high expectations—the previous book totally blew me away, most of the best series regulars were to be in this one—but this one just was not as good. It was still a really enjoyable read, but not one of the better Troubleshooters books.

The problems were these: I think the book would have benefited from a tighter edit. The ebook had a bunch of typos, first of all, but there's also a lot of redundant information. In the first half of the book, the

I admit it: I'm a total Sam Starrett stalker. So when I heard there was another book with Sam and Alyssa as the main characters, I was gung ho to read it, and I wasn't disappointed.

Just a quick note: potential spoilers ahead.

This book's main storyline is about Sam & Alyssa but there's also a good romance between Danny Gillman and Jennilynn, and the continuing saga of Izzy and Eden.

Savannah (Kenny's wife) and Jenn (or Jenni, as Dan calls her) are friends with a NYC Assemblywoman with big poli

At the end of the paperback a couple of books back there was a short story about Alyssa and the Dentist. It was chilling and I hoped that it never would become a book plot. I lost. This is a really hard book for me to read. Serial killers are so not my thing and to have one of my favorite characters caught up with one is terrifying to me.

The Dentist has be obsessing about Alyssa since she and Jules almost caught him some years ago. He has researched her and devised an elaborate using plan to tra
I have to say that Suzanne has done it again! She not only wrote an intriguing nail biter, she kept me awake all night because I just had to see what would happen next. (Jeez! I can't afford to lose much sleep.)Our favorite of all of the characters that she has written about are again featured in this one, but there is a new romance that starts and one that you wish could find some happiness.

Alyssa Locke has been determined to find the killer that left a woman in the freezer of a home in New Ha
This story line was a little confusing for me....I just didn't get it. BUT what I do get is the great love I have for these characters.

I loved Dan and Jenni's story. Dan?? Fishboy? Gilligan?? Gil-weed? Gil-wadd? Fish-face? Gil-douche? A-hole? Dude?? You seriously have inserted your foot into your mouth more than your fair share in this one.

I couldn't give 5 stars because of the serial killer factor. If this books was not in this series, I doubt I could have read it. I HATE serial killers, horrible violence and mutilation and so on.

But if I take apart the ick factor for me, this book was really good. We have some TS like Alyssa and Sam and their wonderful little boy Ash flying to NY to give security lessons to a politic-career woman. Some of Seals, including Dan and Izzy going to help. And then my Jules and his husband Rob

“Ah, God, Lys" he breathed, and she opened her eyes to look up at him. She was the love of his heart, his true partner in both work and life, and the idea of losing her to the violence of the world they lived in scared the living shit out of him.

But her smile lit her eyes, her face, and he pushed the darkness away and let himself grin back at her like the damn fool that he was. This moment-now-was perfect, and he wasn't going to let his fears interfere.”
