    Suzanne Brockmann's "Ladies' Man" is a good read.

    I just read this book to give me something to do while my husband is on a temporary deployment to Tampa. It was a good book. It kept me guessing until the very end. And of course I'm a sap for happy endings, which it has. I would recommend this book especially to read on rainy days or when you're just trying to pass time.

    Perdictable

    This book had potential to be erotic. It was Romantic, but boring. Sam's character had potential to be 'HAWT' and Ellen could've been sexier. But I was bored, throughout. This was an easy no frills 'quick read'. I won't pick up Suzanne Brockmann again, this was weak.

    Wonderful story

    Ladies Man by Suzanne Brockmann is finally back in print. It¿s a wonderfully told tale of love and trusting oneself. ______________________ College Professor Ellen Layne is spending the summer in NY with her two children. They are all pursuing acting careers this summer. As a favor to her talk show host uncle Bob Osbourne, she agrees to pick up her Aunt at the airport. While waiting she starts a harmless flirtation with a younger man. ______________________ Detective Sam Schaefer, as a kindness to his author friend T.S. Harrison agrees to meet Bob Osbourne¿s Aunt Alma. Sam is drawn to Ellen but she is still gun shy from her painful divorce. _____________________ When Sam is made aware of threats to Ellen, the cop in him takes over. Can he convince her to trust him with her life as well as her heart? ___________________ Though Ladies Man was originally written in 1997, I didn¿t find it dated at all. It was a romance for any time. Its exceptionally written and a delight for any romance fan.

    Great romantic suspense

    Ellen is at the airport to meet up for one of her Great Aunts as a favor to her famous Uncle, whom she and her 2 children are living with for the summer in NYC. While waiting for the delayed plane she regrets not having brought a book with her and wanders off to one of the airport book stores. There she spies the ruggedly handsome man standing looking at books by one of her favorite authors. He tries a couple of pick up lines with her after being drawn to her. The initially don¿t work, but when they are thrown together in a limo for more than 2 hours things take a change for the better in his mind. She throws caution to the wind and decides that a one night stand with an amazingly good looking man will finally help to exercise the demons of her bad marriage. Sam doesn¿t want it to be a one night stand. He is drawn to Ellen as he has never been before. But, he is also facing something new to him, someone who says no to him. Sam¿s best friend is writing the biography of Ellen¿s uncle and he begs his friend to help him out. When it is apparent that Ellen is concerned about some nasty fan letters that Bob is getting TS suggests they call his friend Detective Sam. Sam comes and looks at the information and is immediately concerned for the safety of Ellen. Sam is shocked to find Ellen has 2 kids but takes this in stride and sets out to 1 ¿ Keep Ellen, Bob and Ellen¿s kids safe 2 ¿ Prove to Ellen they he is not to young for a relationship 3 ¿ Show Ellen that he won¿t hurt her, and is in fact in love with her When Sam and Bob are caught in a fire, which looks like it is meant to kill Bob, Ellen looks like she might change her mind and let Sam into her heart and life. But, again she pushes him away. Now though it looks like the stalker is not after Bob but Ellen herself. When Ellen¿s son is almost kidnapped she really panics and finally starts to take the threats seriously.

    fine romantic suspense

    Yale Professor Ellen Layne and her TV host Uncle Bob Osborne wait for her Great Aunt Alma to land in New York. Ellen goes to a bookstore where a handsome stranger suggests she read anything by T.S. Harrison before he asks for her number realizing he is ten years younger than her and that she had two teenage children, Jamie and Lydia, she refuses. Not long afterward, the man meets Bob, who thinks he is Harrison. Unable to get a word in otherwise, NYPD Detective Sam Schaeffer is introduced to Alma as her favorite author. Ellen gives him a ride in her uncle¿s Limo where Sam explains that T.S. is his best friend who could not make it, but neither Bob nor Alma would let him speak. Unable to resist, they make love in the back seat of the limo, but afterward she refuses to give him her number as she feels he is too young for her. --- T.S. explains to Bob what happened at the airport Bob still wants the writer to do his biography. Ellen mentions a security breach, death threat letters and obscene calls. T.S. asks Sam to assess the danger. Sam believes the threat is towards Ellen, whose commercial just aired on TV. Later Sam is stunned when he meets her two kids, but handles it gracefully as he becomes their escort while someone dangerous stalks her and her kids. --- The relationship between the lead characters is passionate and adding to the freshness is she is a decade older than he. The support cast is solid as the teens are adjusted and Bob and T.S. are caring souls. The climax though containing a delightful twist and a five degrees spin seems abrupt, but readers will still appreciate this fine romantic suspense. --- Harriet Klausner
