Out of Control
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

This installment was better than I expected. Yes, I've read it before, but it was a while ago. I forgot that Molly and Jones meet here and whoa! Their story is explosive and it only just begun. Then Alyssa and Sam, Jules, Max...sigh. Squee!!! Such a great series as a whole with some super big standout characters. One thins about listening to the audio, ...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
This pic reminds me of Savannah~she's was a sweetheart! And not a damsel in distress , which is so awesome to read.
The MC's SAVANNAH & KEN "WILDCARD' were awesome!
The secondary romance of Molly and Jones were an adorable.The WW11 subplot love story with Rose and Hank was sweet and interesting and this time held my attention.
The car scene had me LMAO. And the development of the MC and SCs as alway was stunning. This is were Suzzane Brockman excels along with her d ...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
Each book in this series just gets better and better.

The way Brockmann structures stories threw me off at first. This book actually have very little of the main couple, especially at first. And since they're fighting early on, I worried it wouldn't be a satisfying romance for me. However, they move closer to center stage as the book professes, which helped. I also just got used to her style and invested in the secondary characters. Since I had tried the first book in this series some time ago an ...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

Wildcard heads to Indonesia with Savannah, to drop off ransom money for her uncle as he doesn't want her to head into dang ...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

“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.”
