    I can see why this made AAR Top 100 and it was a really good read for me as well I am not going to give it 5 stars, it does get 4.75, because of some issues I had about the book I loved Stan and Teri as a couple and thought that they had some real heat on paper I haven t read the first two books and I am going to go back and remedy that, before I proceed with the rest of the series Curse you OCD I won t go into great details because of course all my friends had already found this great read I can see why this made AAR Top 100 and it was a really good read for me as well I am not going to give it 5 stars, it does get 4.75, because of some issues I had about the book I loved Stan and Teri as a couple and thought that they had some real heat on paper I haven t read the first two books and I am going to go back and remedy that, before I proceed with the rest of the series Curse you OCD I won t go into great details because of course all my friends had already found this great read and already done an awesome job of reviewing it The slight problems I had with the book were that there were a lot of couples fighting for face time in the book Max and Gina s story was so poignant, that I wanted to focus on them Alyssa and Sam s romance man what a tangle that is, but I guess for a story line continuation and a dose of reality, we needed that Back to Stan and Teri, I just wished that we would have got to see Teri crack Hogan in the nuts just once there at the end, so I could scream Hoorah at the book Now I have to stop myself from going and grab Max and Gina s book I can be patient and let their story unfold

    Stan and Teri were such a cute couple I loved Stan from the beginning It saddened me that he thought he was ugly In my head I can t picture him as ugly because he was such a cool guy I enjoyed the bond and the chemistry between Stan and Teri, and how they saw each other deeper than anyone else did It was interesting how Stan was trying to flee from Teri and his attraction to her, and she was the one chasing him Out of the Team 16 couples, they are one of my favorites The Sam and Alyssa pa Stan and Teri were such a cute couple I loved Stan from the beginning It saddened me that he thought he was ugly In my head I can t picture him as ugly because he was such a cool guy I enjoyed the bond and the chemistry between Stan and Teri, and how they saw each other deeper than anyone else did It was interesting how Stan was trying to flee from Teri and his attraction to her, and she was the one chasing him Out of the Team 16 couples, they are one of my favorites The Sam and Alyssa parts will break your heart I thought I was going to die, the way that things ended between them at the end of this book I was praying that things would work out I guess I had to keep reading Unlike quite a few fans of this series, I loved the WWII storyline in each book But it s a particular favorite period of mine.The action is great That Alyssa can kick some serious butt And Sam, well, he can do no wrong, sort of He can, but I love him anyway One of my personal favorites out of this series

    Sr Chief Stan Wolchonok, SEAL team 16 s own Mr Fix It, witnesses Teri Howe one of the best pilots in the Naval Reserves being sexually harassed and wonders why she doesn t deck the guy It turns out, Teri has a problem with assertiveness So Stan takes it upon himself to work with Teri on assertiveness training And even though he is madly in love lust with her himself, he also undertakes to fix her up with a nice young man who can treat her well.In the meantime, a group of terrorists, hijac Sr Chief Stan Wolchonok, SEAL team 16 s own Mr Fix It, witnesses Teri Howe one of the best pilots in the Naval Reserves being sexually harassed and wonders why she doesn t deck the guy It turns out, Teri has a problem with assertiveness So Stan takes it upon himself to work with Teri on assertiveness training And even though he is madly in love lust with her himself, he also undertakes to fix her up with a nice young man who can treat her well.In the meantime, a group of terrorists, hijack a commercial airliner bound for Greece and instead force it to land in Kazbekistan On the plane is Gina Vitagliano who becomes the one hostage through whom the terrorists communicate.SEAL team 16 are deployed to rescue the hostages, with Sam Starrett running the op The FBI sends in Max Baghat and his team, which includes Alyssa Locke, to either negotiate the safe release or stall the terrorists long enough for Sam and his team to rescue.While in the steaming, hostile country affectionately called The Pit, Stan and Teri connect, Sam and Alyssa write another chapter in their stormy love story, Max and Gina are introduced and we learn a little back history about a WWII holocaust survivor.This is one of my very favorite of the Troubleshooter series.Stan Teri The main story of Stan and Teri is wonderful Stan is not alpha dog material like Sam, but he still make a great hero I love his inner dialogue about his feelings for Teri Brockmann gives their story a light comic touch with Stan s attempts to set Teri up with the clueless Mike Muldoon while trying to suppress his own feelings for her But she also tempers it with some gravitas when she allows Teri to open up to Stan about her past and why she has problems asserting herself Sam Alyssa This made my heart break I can t deny that Sam and Alyssa s little dance is delicious to watch The two of them spar words and snipe at each other and it doesn t seem contrived or cliche This is because Brockmann has very clearly let the reader know that Sam and Alyssa s sniping is only on when they are in front of each other Apart, the two of them are miserable in love And then, when it looks like we are finally gonna get our happy ending BAM something comes out of left field that makes it all kaput That least scene with Alyssa all giddy and dressed up for Sam made me so sad But in a weird way it crystallized my absolute love for Sam Starrett Is his own macho asshole way, he is a wonderful, honorable man.The Hijacking As a main storyline this one can t be beat We meet Gina for the first time We delve into the character of Max This is the nascent period of Brockmann s the second great long running romance arc, Max Gina I loved the scenes of the SEAL team as they drill tirelessly to board the plane using Alyssa, Jules and Teri as stand in terrorists Sam s frustration at having to wait for the go ahead to board is palpable and his artistic and multiple uses of the word Fuck is absolutely Homeric.The WWII storyline This was my least favorite of all the WWII storylines that pepper the series I wasn t really involved in Helga s story very much But I think that Brockmann did a great job in showing the character s confusion and disorientation as she begins showing the signs of Alzheimer s.Excellent book Highly recommended

    It was supposed to be a training mission to a tropical island When Senior Chief Stan Wolchonok requested that Pilot Teri Howell be part of the Navy SEALs training operation, he thought she would get to fly the helicopters and have some much needed time to relax and get away from a man who is harassing her Instead, a plane carrying a Senator s daughter is hijacked in Kazbekistan and SEALs Team Sixteen is called into action As Stan and his team work with the FBI hostage negotiators and local po It was supposed to be a training mission to a tropical island When Senior Chief Stan Wolchonok requested that Pilot Teri Howell be part of the Navy SEALs training operation, he thought she would get to fly the helicopters and have some much needed time to relax and get away from a man who is harassing her Instead, a plane carrying a Senator s daughter is hijacked in Kazbekistan and SEALs Team Sixteen is called into action As Stan and his team work with the FBI hostage negotiators and local police, they come up with a plan to free the hostages This is the third book in Brockmann s Troubleshooters series and it s a good one There are many story threads Along with Stan and Teri s burgeoning romance and the SEALs working on a rescue plan, we have a WWII flashback story told by Jewish woman whose family hid from the Nazis in occupied Denmark We also see Hostage Negotiator Max Bhagat trying to save the lives of the hostages, including a young woman he has feelings for But my favorite portion of the book was the turbulent relationship of Sam and Alyssa When will these two finally be on the same page This is a fast paced book and hard to part down I highly recommend it My rating 5 Stars
