A friend of mine recommended Brockmann to me and I started with this one. Two stories for the price of one and I was pleasantly surprised by the stories. Well-written and filled with plenty of suspense and romance, Unstoppable will appeal to both romance and mystery lovers. The characters had depth and a ring of realism that I found likable. I'll be reading more from Brockmann.

My Rating: 4 stars

Anyone who knows me, knows Suzanne Brockmann is one of my favorite authors. I’ve read everything she’s ever written and published–or at least I thought I had.

Every now and then I do a search through Amazon to see what my go-to authors have coming up in the future. I was surprised to come across Love With The Proper Stranger, a re-release from 1997.

From the opening line, She laced his coffee with opium, I was hooked. I mean, how can you not want to find out what happens after that, right? Right

Unstoppable by Suzanne Brockmann
Contains: Love With a Proper Stranger; and Letters to Kelly

Love With a Proper Stranger is the story of FBI Agent John Miller falling in love with Mariah Carver while undercover tracking a female serial killer called the Black Widow. John is known as "The Robot" by his colleagues because of his inability to show emotion and his nonstop work ethic. In reality, he is trying to get through each day while dealing with the memory of his former best friend/partner being
Overall rating of 3.5

Not quite the Brockmann pen of the popular Troubleshooter series, but hallmarks of what will become her definitive style are evident in this two novella reprint of her earlier work. That writing style of two narrations, the non-linear flashbacks, the strong solid males who clearly follow where the lines are drawn and even outlines of what later becomes characters in the Troubleshooter series are evident. If any of that is your cup of tea, you won’t go wrong with this/these r
Can I just discuss how much I love Suzanne Brockmann? These are some of her earlier stories but you can still see the tight story telling with the well-developed characters. Especially for these being shorter stories.
Love with the Proper Stranger
Mariah Robinson (not her real name) has just worked for two long years to pull her father's company back from the brink of bankruptcy. Now, she just wants a life. She's on a small island, working on her photography skills, and enjoying time with her new

This book is a re-print of a couple of the author's earlier works.

Love With the Proper Stranger, the first one, just didn't work for me. I didn't care for John and had a hard time believing Marie/Mariah would walk away from her life. After 30 pages I gave this one up, it just wasn't for me.

Letters to Kelly, on the other hand, was great. I loved T or Jax fell in love with Kelly when she was young, that he knew it was inappropriate and he tried to hold back. His jumping to take her to her prom wa

over all it was a 4, Unstoppable, it contains 2 stories and i admit the first one was better.LOVE WITH THE PROPER STRANGER. FBI agent John Miller is undercover trying to find the serial killer, they call the black widow, who is always finding older men or sick men marrying them then killing them and inheritting their money. Though he knows the rules he has to find a way to get close to the serial killer thru her best friend, then he develops feeling for Mariah. Will his feelings get in the way o ...more

I was not particularly impressed with these stories. I liked the "Love with a Proper..." characters and found them sincere and believable but Brockman's action-writing has improved a great deal since this was written (1998). "Letters to Kelly" may have been dear to her heart but I was not impressed with it at all. It was repetitive and bland. Jax was Kelly's first love and he crushed her without explanation. It was the greatest hurt of her young life that haunted her since. He walks back into he ...more

This reprint which includes two books in one was a nice find. I love Brockmann and like to read everything she's written, even if the early ones aren't as good as her later works. These two stories were pretty good and I enjoyed them both for the most part. Love with the Proper Stranger was interesting and I thought the characters were well-developed - I liked both main characters and was really rooting for them. Letters to Kelly was less interesting to me. I wanted to really love this book - I ...more

Unstoppable: Love with the Proper Stranger & Letters to Kelly by Suzanne Brockmann.

A combo paperback with two of Brockmann's early stories. 'Proper Stranger' was okay, I enjoyed it but I don't think it's one of her best. I never believe it when one of the main characters, usually the man, is so besotted that he just can't function in his daily life. Here you have an FBI agent that keeps making mistake after mistake, can't tear himself away from his fascinating new love interest, etc. A litt

Two very different books but you very Suzanne Brockmann. The first, Love with a Proper Stranger, is great fun. You get glimpses of Brockmann's later Troubleshooter series and Daniel is definitely a fore-runner of Jules. I think what I liked most about this book was that the heroine is not small & beautiful but taller and not your usual stunner. Instead she's self-conscious of her body especially compared to her 'friend'. But the hero loves her - more for her personality and character than he ...more

Love with a proper stranger : 3 star
At first it was promising but the more the story goes and the more
I was losing interest.

Letters to Kelly: 5 star
I totally get why this is the favorite story of Suzanne Brockmann's mother. This is probably my favorite too. Loved the story, loved the characters, loved the flashback and especially loved the "conversation" between Jax and his main character.

Romen yang terdiri dari dua cerita, Letters for Kelly dan Love with A Proper Stranger.
Buat yang Kelly, sebenarnya sih bagus surat-suratnya, tapi ngebayangin orang dewasa (yah ga dewasa banget sih yak) naksir abg, kok rasanya idiih.. gak banget hahahaha

lebih suka yang kedua, tapiii sayang banget tokoh jahatnya ga banyak
diceritain, padahal POV-nya si pembunuh bagus
ya gitu deh, namanya juga buku romen, kalo fokus ke pembunuhnya bukan romen lagi dong ya namanya.. :p

Love with the Proper Stranger: Hum. It wasn't good. It's the worst Suzanne Brockmann that I read. It's weird that this book is paired with Letters to Kelly because LtK is Suzanne Brockmann's most complete book. Okay. Let's say it: It's her MASTERPIECE! It got everything: the flashbacks (nonlinear narration), 2 narrators, awesome characters, S.B most romantic story ever.
Love With the Proper Stranger was just okay. But I totally loved Letters to Kelly. It's a great story and Jax is one of my new favorite male leads. Wish I could have given them stars separately. The three were an average.
I do like the way Suzanne Brockmann writes, but I gotta say Love with the Proper Stranger just didn't sit with me. It lacks something. I had to go and re-read some parts again and again cause I lost interest mid reading. On the other hand, Letters to Kelly is a great book.

Lebih suka yang Love with the Proper Stranger... tapi bakal lebih seru kalo ceritanya berpusat ke Serena.

Yang Letters to Kelly ceritanya sedih, tapi sebel sama kedua tokohnya.

The five star rating is for "Letters to Kelly" The first one was okay, but I adored T. Jax!
Always a fan of Suzanne Brockmann's work. Enjoy reading her earlier stories. Her characters are so delightful, it's fun watching them fall in love.
