    2.75 stars, rounded upI swear y all, I think I need a too horny to survive shelf just for this series These are the horniest, lustiest, orgasmiest characters ever I have no idea how they function, or even walk across the room without squirting all over the place One chick comes before the dude s even inside her But just for him, of course Because she barely knew him in college but has been dreaming of this moment ever since because her life is just that empty, I guess Coming before you e 2.75 stars, rounded upI swear y all, I think I need a too horny to survive shelf just for this series These are the horniest, lustiest, orgasmiest characters ever I have no idea how they function, or even walk across the room without squirting all over the place One chick comes before the dude s even inside her But just for him, of course Because she barely knew him in college but has been dreaming of this moment ever since because her life is just that empty, I guess Coming before you even get started sounds like a mood killer to me, or a giant ego boost if you happen to be That Guy But anyway, this book isn t actually about epic orgasms the blurb says so No, it s about some dude who goes missing in Indonesia and the niece and feisty elderly mom who blow up the jungle looking for him Nah I m kidding That would have been an infinitelyfun book to read But it is about a gullible niece who tries to save him, and his mom, who is this super impressive legendary figure but it just sort of there for the obligatory WWII stuff.This did have some good moments, when the characters managed to get out of each other s pants forthan two pages in a row, but I can t say I was rooting for any of the couples, at least not for a good chunk of the book Couples that start out with pure lust just automatically start with a huge handicap for me to get over, because I need to know the characters and how they get along outside the bedroom first, before I can even begin to care about anything that might happen in the bedroom, and Brockmann clearly prefers lust first I found myself actually missing Patrick Lawlor s campy delivery in some parts, because at least he made this stuff fun, but the dual narration was such a trial for me that the audios are a no go.Karmody Savannah Karmody s kind of a lovable doofus who loves way too quickly, and Savannah is a socialite who knows how to get down and dirty No Not that way Okay, yes, that way but not just that way I actually rather liked this couple by the end but view spoiler Karmody going in front of reporters on TV is kind of a no no for SEALs, isn t it Wonder how long he ll keep his job after this Oh well, at least he s got that potential high tech money and he s engaged to an heiress hide spoiler Molly Jones Blarg I liked Molly I never warmed up to Jones, especially after view spoiler he didn t stop when Molly asked him to Sure, it was because of location than lack of wanting, but stop means stop, jackass hide spoiler They did get to talk and get to know each other, but what we got to know didn t really change my opinion on the dude.Alyssa Starett view spoiler I ve already been spoiled on the Alyssa and Starett nonsense to come, so I m not even bothering with the Alyssa Max idiocy going on here And Max should be ashamed for using an inferior to distract him from the abduction survivor from the previous book, who he should also be staying far, far away from hide spoiler Why Alyssa s so hung up on an asshole who treated her like crap the whole time she was drunk boinking him, I have no idea Girl has no self respect I really can t stand her at this point, which is a shame because she started out so awesome.Rose Hank If I bought a memoir about the first double agent in WWII an 18 year old girl, no less and got a swoony romance instead of espionage and intrigue, I d one star that crap so fast Once again, I started skipping all the WWII flashbacks because they just weren t holding my interest Then the various characters started talking about it because of course they were all reading it, so I didn t know when it was time to start skipping again, which was just annoying.At this point, I m skipping ahead for the Jules stuff, since he does apparently graduate from the token gay sidekick role at some point and actually becomes important later Whether his romance is handled any better or not, well, I m not holding my breath

    I wasn t expecting to enjoy Out of Control as much as I did Really 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 I wasn t expecting to enjoy Out of Control as much as I did Really 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 with whom There were a lot of characters and three individual romances that were swimming among the pages One of the love stories was a thread that took place during WWII and stitched all of the existing scenarios together For those of you that abhor continual exchanges referring to previous alliances, look elsewhere In case you were wondering, this was Ken Wildcard Karmody s turn for romantic closure If you have ever fried bacon in a cast iron skillet and got up close and personal, you will relate to Kenny s relationship with Van You know what I mean think about it You hear the sizzling You consider screaming for a brief moment when grease pops onto your hand You smell, wonders of wonders, a delicious aroma It was a balm A message You finally arrived home Or I should say, Ken did Then there was Molly the older woman with a past And Jones , the loner Theirs was a lesson in opposites attract A couple that found one another in the oppressive and muggy heat of the Indonesian jungle A missionary and a smuggler And talk about some steam The third romance was the thread that took place during WWII It was the story of Savannah Van von Hopf s grandparents It concerned itself with spies, a war and insta love Soulmates And a sweet forever Sigh There was plenty of action Some of the occurrences were page turners Without it, I don t think I would have enjoyed this book half as much And once I finished the first quarter, I was hooked For lack of a better word, it was busy But I had a handle on things I loved the snarky banter The chemistry I guessed at what twosomes would earn their HEAs and which others would find happiness in future books Thank you, Luli, for recommending Out of Control to me I thoroughly enjoyed it

    I spent the entire month of February in Cozumel on the beach reading the rest of the Troubleshooter series and it s a good thing my Kindle s whispernet worked or I would have had a stroke This series is so damn addictive.you can t read just one, and you definitely must read them in order I liked some of the books much better than others.but this one is Fantastic There is so much going on 1 The main story of the rich prim proper girl Savannah meets bad boy Navy Seal Ken K I spent the entire month of February in Cozumel on the beach reading the rest of the Troubleshooter series and it s a good thing my Kindle s whispernet worked or I would have had a stroke This series is so damn addictive.you can t read just one, and you definitely must read them in order I liked some of the books much better than others.but this one is Fantastic There is so much going on 1 The main story of the rich prim proper girl Savannah meets bad boy Navy Seal Ken Karmody aka Wild Card working together to rescue her uncle that takes them on an exciting adventure into the jungle and foreign countries they are an unlikely match yet they are perfect together2 An introduction to a blossoming hot romance between Molly older woman missionary in the jungle and Grady younger man pirate that leaves us begging for a conclusion 3 Plus a WW2 story book autobiography by Savannah s grandmother describing how she endured those horrendous times and ended up with her true love4 And last but not least, we have the continuing friction between Sam Alyssa and their unrequited love for each other..It broke my heart when Alyssa told Jules after reading the autobiography that she Wanted her own happily ever after As a primarily historical romance reader I would recommend to those that want to broaden their reading spectrum to dip their toe into this series.I don t think you will be disappointed The romance between the H h is so strong and takes center stage, while the suspense wraps around them and adds to excitement of their situation

    I am almost giddy with excitement for the stories to come I am getting closer and closer to the really good stuff and I can hardly stand it 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, Maxsigh Squee Such a great series as a whole with some super big standout characters One thins about listening to the audio, I am almost giddy with excitement for the stories to come I am getting closer and closer to the really good stuff and I can hardly stand it 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, Maxsigh Squee Such a great series as a whole with some super big standout characters One thins about listening to the audio, it certainly makes it harder to skip around to the good parts and I wasor less forced to read the whole book And I am glad I did because it was a lovely story about Rose and her Prince, Wildcard and Savannah, and seeing Alyssa and Sam be practically strangers.I highly recommend this series and the audio The narration was really good.4 stars

    I wasn t going to read this book for a few weeks as I didn t want to overdose too much on the same author.however I just couldn t resist reading Wildcard s story And now the bad thing is, is that I can t decide who I likeWildcard or Stan although I would have to go with Stan just on a height basis 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 I wasn t going to read this book for a few weeks as I didn t want to overdose too much on the same author.however I just couldn t resist reading Wildcard s story And now the bad thing is, is that I can t decide who I likeWildcard or Stan although I would have to go with Stan just on a height basis 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 she wants him to go with her to deliver the ransom However that isnt quite what happens, they end up having a night together before her telling him who she is and why she is there and needless to say Kenny feels used However he still accompanies her and the real trouble starts from there What I really liked about Kenny was how sweet and open to love he was, with most books the hero beleives he doesn t want to be in love or doesn t need it however, Wildcard wants someone to love and love him back but has been burnt in the past and despite being a jerk as Savannah would say, he also has a very big heart I also liked Savannah as well, I thought she was sweet and tough, the kind of person I would want to be friends with she didn t do too many stupid things either and when she did you understood why This book also had the WWII thread going through it and I really liked how she did it in this book, with the various characters all reading the same biography of a female double agent Savannahs Grandmother during the war There was also a secondary love story between Molly and Jones, a missinairy worker and a smuggler with a shady path, that begins in this book and I hope continues in future books as it didn t seem to resolve by the end of this one.Finally, the Sam and Alyssa saga continues and I really just want to read the their book However I also feel sorry for Mary Lou although she didn t come across as the nicest person I feel kind of sorry for her and I hope she gets a HEA as well Anyways on to Mike Muldoon next
