Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Blending several humor-garnished love stories into the best sort of cocktail, veteran romance author Brockmann (Over the Edge) serves up a heady brew that readers are certain to savor. Computer wiz and Navy SEAL Ken Karmody changes a tire for grease-smudged damsel-in-distress Savannah van Hopf, cooks her dinner and ends up in bed with her the beginning of a fantastic relationship, he believes, until Savannah shatters his dreams the next morning with her sheepish revelation that she had sought him out so he could help her negotiate her uncle's ransom in Indonesia. But sleeping with him, she insists, was never part of her plan. Feeling betrayed, Ken nonetheless accompanies her to Indonesia. Evading kidnappers plunges them deep into the jungle with few resources, forcing the two to rely on each other, rebuild their broken trust and rediscover their former passion. Meanwhile, Savannah's grandmother, a World War II double agent whose memories of her love for a supposed Nazi interweave with Ken and Savannah's jungle perils, rousts Ken's fellow SEALs and the FBI into organizing a rescue mission. A consummate and prolific storyteller, Brockmann consistently turns out first-rate novels that tug on the reader's heartstrings, and her latest is no exception.

Biography

Although Suzanne Brockmann can't remember a time when she wasn't scribbling something (one of her earliest masterpieces was an action-packed radio play called "Mice on Mars"), she didn't begin to write seriously until she was married with young children. She spent several years trying to break into the super-competitive field of screenwriting before deciding to try her hand at genre fiction; and, it was only after months of intensive research that she finally homed in on Romance. In June of 1992, she sat down to write her first book. By year's end, she had completed ten manuscripts, and in August of 1993, she sold her first book, the contemporary romance Future Perfect.

Brockmann's first novels were stand-alones. But as her career progressed, she noticed that romance mini-series, with their opportunities for character development and intersecting story lines, had become extremely popular. Seeking to increase her readership, she decided to write a mini-series of her own. She found her "hook" in a magazine article on Navy SEALs and, in 1996, she released Prince Joe, the first novel in her Tall, Dark and Dangerous series. The alpha males of Brockmann's fictional SEAL Team 10 proved to be the perfect romantic heroes, and the series was an immediate hit with readers. Four years later, she launched a second series of military/romantic thrillers centered on the friendships, romances, and working relationships among a team of Navy SEALS and members of an elite security agency called Troubleshooters, Inc. Starting with The Unsung Hero in 2000, the Troubleshooters books have catapulted the author to the top of the charts.

Brockmann is known in the industry as a risk-taker, having written stories around such sensitive topics as interracial romance and homosexuality, In 2004, she garnered attention for her eighth Troubleshooters novel, Hot Target, which involved one of her most popular recurring characters, openly gay FBI agent Jules Cassidy, in a romantic subplot. Brockman, who dedicated the book to her gay son Jason, was not sure how readers would respond. To her surprise, the reaction from gay and straight alike proved positive. She stated on her website: "I love the fact that the world I've created in my books -- a diverse American world filled with the same variety of people who live in my urban American neighborhood -- has been so enthusiastically embraced by readers."

Brockmann's distinctive literary blend has come in for its fair share of praise. Writing in the Chicago Tribune, veteran Booklist reviewer John Charles stated: "Brockmann strikes the perfect balance between white-knuckle suspense and richly emotional romance." And USA Today has called her "[t]he reigning queen of militaray suspense." As further proof of her mainstream appeal, she remains one of a handful of Romance novelists to have made the leap from mass market paperback to hardcover.

Good To Know

In an interview with the online magazine All About Romance, Brockmann says: "I started reading when I was three (my first 'real' book was Beverly Cleary's Here Comes the Bus -- I remember this because no one believed that I was really reading it and I got really upset when my older sister took it back to the school library before I'd finished it!)."

A serious history buff from her youth, Brockmann has read widely on WWII and has been known to incorporate stories from that era into the books of her Troubleshooters series.

Brockmann loves music. She attended Boston University as a film major with a minor in creative writing but dropped out to perform with a rock and roll band. She also sang with and served as music director for a Boston-based a cappella group called "Serious Fun" and produced its first and only CD in 1998.

Brockman is married to novelist Ed Gaffney.

The mother of an openly gay son , Brockmann is a proud member of PFLAG (Parents, Families & Friends of Lesbians & Gays).

In her writing, Brockmann employs a device she calls Deep Point of View. She explains it in an interview with the online writers' journal Writers Write: "In my books, I use subjective point of view, but I'm not satisfied with merely showing the reader what that camera sees from its perch atop a character's head. I bring the camera down, inside of that character's head, so we see the world through that character's eyes. We hear things through his ears. We smell what he smells, feel what he feels, think what he think. With deep POV, I write using words that that character would use. I tell the story with that character's voice."

SEVERAL MONTHS LATER

Savannah von Hopf’s life spiraled even further out of control when she opened her cell phone and discovered that the batteries were completely dead.

She stared at the phone in disbelief, unwilling at first to accept any explanation other than that she’d suddenly and horrifically been plunged into an alternate reality. She’d charged her phone last night in her hotel room—same as she charged her phone every single night of her life. She wouldn’t have forgotten something as important as that, and she hadn’t. She’d plugged it into the outlet in the bathroom and . . .

And then turned out the light to go to sleep. Without the light switch in the on position, the outlet hadn’t worked and the phone hadn’t charged.

Of course.

She wasn’t in an alternate reality. She was merely an idiot.

So now here she was, sans phone, in a rental car with a flat tire, in an unfamiliar part of San Diego.

Okay. Cross using her cell phone to call the car rental company for roadside assistance off the list that had the heading “What To Do Now.” Savannah kept the motor on and the air conditioner running while she tried to think. What were her other options?

Knock on doors and ask to use a phone?

She peered out the windows of her car. The houses in this neighborhood was extremely small, and many of them had a grayness to them—as if the people living inside had had to choose to spend their money on something more vital, like repairing the roof, rather than on a fresh coat of paint.

The yards were all neatly kept, but still, this entire part of town had a desperate feel to it, a hopelessness.

The thought of having to get out of her car made Savannah a little uneasy—let alone the idea of getting out of her car and knocking on some stranger’s door.

And wasn’t that just great? If she were too chicken to get out of her car in some middle-class neighborhood in San Diego, how on earth was she going to get off the plane in Jakarta?

Of course, that was why she was here in the first place. Because she didn’t want to get off that plane in Jakarta—at least not without a hand to hold.

Specifically, Kenny Karmody’s hand.

She’d gotten what she’d come into this neighborhood for before the thumping front tire had forced her to pull to the side of the road.

She’d driven past Kenny’s house and made certain there was no circumstantial evidence in his yard that would signal he was married with kids. No swing set, no big wheels, no Barbie hanging by her hair from a tree. No minivan parked in the drive.

Adele had told Savannah that, to the best of her knowledge, Ken was still single. But she’d had experience back in college with “the best of Adele’s knowledge,” and she’d wanted to see where Kenny was living before she called him.

And asked him to travel halfway around the globe with her, as a favor.

God, how was she going to ask a favor like that? Of a man she hadn’t seen in over six years? A man with whom she’d had only one brief conversation, who probably wouldn’t even remember her?

Savannah could see Ken’s house in her rearview mirror—it was one of the better kept ones on the street. Miniature, sure, but not quite as drab.

She wasn’t going to have the opportunity to ask the man anything if she didn’t get back to the hotel and call him.

And say what?

Adele had been adamant that Savannah not mention her when she spoke to Kenny. According to Adele, he still wasn’t over their breakup.

“Don’t even tell him you met him while you were at Yale,” she’d said. “He hates Yale—hates all Ivy League schools and everyone who went to one.”

So what was Savannah supposed to do? Lie?

“Tell him you met him at that technical college he went to in San Diego,” Adele had suggested.

No, the last thing she was going to do was lie. She was going to call him and say she got his name from a friend of a friend—which was a variation of the truth since Marla had stayed friendly with Adele after college, and Savannah still met Marla for lunch in the city every few months.

She was going to tell Ken that she needed some advice, and would he meet her for dinner at the Hotel Del Coronado? Her treat. Her plan was to get him to show with the promise of a gourmet meal, and then, once face to face, tell him about Alex and the money and the trip to Jakarta. And—somehow—get up the nerve to ask him to come along.

Without making it sound as if she were propositioning him.

Although, truth be told, the idea of spending a day or two in the exotic port of Jakarta with a man she’d had the hots for since she’d first laid eyes on him, left her considering the possibilities.

Considering? Try fantasizing.

Savannah turned off her rental car’s motor, and stepped out into the five-billion-degree heat. Didn’t it figure? San Diego had perfect weather nine hundred and ninety-nine days out of every thousand.

Today, however, there was a heat wave that could put her mother’s beloved Atlanta to shame.

Her hair wilted instantly as she bent to look at her front right tire.

Pancake city.

If Savannah had been even just a little less practical, she might have sat down and cried. Instead, she just sat down. Right there on the curb. Crying wouldn’t get her out of there.

Driving on that tire wouldn’t get her out of there, either.

And walking to that service station she’d passed two or three miles back also wasn’t going to do the trick. Her high-heeled pumps matched her beige linen skirt and jacket with such perfection, her mother would have swooned with pride. However, her shoes didn’t do such a terrific job matching her feet. After a half a mile, she would be in such excruciating pain, she’d have to crawl the rest of the way on her hands and knees.

So that left the final option. Changing the tire.

Savannah opened the trunk and there it was, under the rug. The spare tire. And the metal thingy that would prop the car up so the bad tire could be removed and the new one attached.

She’d driven past someone who was using one of those things once. A jack. That’s what it was called.

How hard could it be?

“Please.” Joaquin’s mother knew only a few words of English, but the anguish in her eyes said it all. Save my son.

Molly Anderson’s first-aid training made her the closest thing to a doctor on this remote mountain in this remote corner of Parwati Island in this remote part of Indonesia. But she wasn’t a doctor, and she had no clue as to what was causing the little boy to struggle so just to breathe.

She couldn’t radio the hospital for advice. The camp’s radio had been stolen three weeks ago for the third time in a row. Short of guarding it 24/7, Father Bob had decided not to replace it.

“Please,” the little boy’s mother whispered again.

The trip down the mountain to the port of Parwati—the island’s sole metropolis, population a whopping 3,500—would take five days via treacherous mule trail.

As the parrot flew, it was only a few hundred miles.

A relatively short trip via airplane.

“Gather the things you need,” Molly said in the local dialect. “You may be at the hospital for some time. I’m going to go find Jones. You know Mr. Jones, right? Meet me up at his airstrip.”

There was only one airplane in the neighborhood, and it belonged to an American expatriate who went by the name Jones. Just Jones. And Molly was willing to bet that that wasn’t the name he’d been given at birth.

Jones was a loner. A quiet man who kept to himself.

He’d shown up about six months ago, looked her up and down in a manner Molly was sure was meant to be insulting, then hired twelve men from the village to help him clear the old WWII-era airstrip that had been cut into the valley a short distance up river.

He’d worked the men hard—and paid them fairly, too, Molly had noted.

The next time she’d seen him, he’d been buzzing overhead in his battered red Cessna.

She suspected he was a smuggler. She knew he was a black marketeer. She’d heard he’d be willing to carry anything in that dilapidated old plane of his—even a gravely ill child—if the price was right.

And today the price would be right, because Jones owed Molly a big favor.

She slowed her pace as she approached his camp, uncertain as to her reception. Although she’d never been up here, the man was a hot topic of conversation in the village among both the locals and the missionaries. Depending on who was asked, he was a dangerous thief, a killer, a lost soul, a good employer, a card shark.

He’d appropriated one of the deserted sagging Quonset huts as his living quarters. More often than not, his plane—which was held together by chewing gum, rubber bands, and prayer—lay in pieces on the runway.

Today, thank goodness, it looked ready to fly.

He was out on the field, shirt off, machete in hand, working hard to keep the jungle from reswallowing the airstrip. Molly watched him work, aware that with a runway this size he had to spend literally hours each day cutting back the brush.

She knew he’d seen her. A man like that had eyes in the back of his head. Still, he kept doggedly working, the muscles in his back and arm straining with each wide swing of his razor sharp knife.

As she got closer, she could see the latticework of faded scars on his back, scars that meant he’d been lashed, beaten within an inch of his life. Even knowing they were there, even faded as they were, she was still taken aback by the sight. She knew they weren’t his only scars. He had others on the lower half of his body as well.

“Mr. Jones. Mr. Jones.” It wasn’t until she said it again, until she was within ten yards of him that he stopped working and turned, wiping sweat from his brow with his forearm.

The men in the village often worked without their shirts, but they always made a point to cover themselves respectfully when she came around. Jones just looked at her, his dark hair slick with sweat, his usual four-day growth of beard darkening his chin, his tanned muscles gleaming.

Lord, he was . . . masculine. And she was staring, which was pretty dumb since she’d seen him without a shirt quite a few times before. In her bed, even. With some tropical form of the flu that had knocked him off his feet—quite literally.

She’d held him and wiped his face with a cool cloth after he’d been violently sick. During the three days that the bug had gripped him the hardest, she’d wiped him clean in some other places, too.

She’d dozed beside him, on a cot, for three nights until his fever broke. She’d stayed on that uncomfortable cot for another night, as he slept a full twenty-four hours, regaining his strength.

And then he’d left. Without a word, without a note of thanks, without giving her a chance to ask him about those scars. She’d come back to her tent, and he was gone.

She’d sent Manuel up to Jones’s camp, to make sure he was all right, but both Jones and his Cessna were gone.

    exciting romantic suspense

    Her friend told her that her best chance of rescuing her Uncle Alex resides with US Navy SEAL Ken ¿Wildcard¿ Karmody. Desperate, Savannah von Hopf is in San Diego hoping to persuade Ken to help her with the ransom exchange in Jakarta, Indonesia. She met Ken once while in Yale so how does she explain the ¿coincidence¿ that has him changing her flat tire near his home unless she tells the truth. Savannah and Ken are immediately attracted to one another, which makes her cowardly and unable to request what she must. They even make love that night. <P>When she finally tells him why she is there, he is angry that he was sucker punched by a beautiful woman again. Still, he cannot allow her to go by herself. Soon the duo is struggling to keep alive, unable to differentiate between terrorist attacks and friendly fire as other American operatives propelled by Savannah¿s grandmother make a rescue attempt. <P> OUT OF CONTROL is an exciting romantic suspense novel that first builds up the cast so that the readers know whose whom before going into an incredible warp speed. The flashbacks through Rose¿s autobiography add depth, but also jars the reader from the prime plot. Still, the story line is fast-paced, but it is the details that make this an exhilarating tale such as the audience trekking along with the stars in the jungle. Though a wild spin, Suzanne Brockmann never allows her novel to spin OUT OF CONTROL so that sub-genre fans have an exuberant experience. <P>Harriet Klausner

    She is great with the action part.....

    Suzanne is great when it comes to action and knowledge about Navy seals. She keeps my heart pumping with her action suspense. BUT if your looking for romance and hot love scenes Suzanne just doesn't cut it. Her love scenes are short and have no detail. She mostly keeps all the detail to the plot and action, which is great don't get me wrong but don't put her in romance if she doesn't actually romance. She is great with the sexual suspense alright, because they never do it, and when they do its a let down. But I love her plots love the characters and love the action.

    It started it all....

    This book started it all for me in the SEAL team Sixteen. The way the words Brockmann writes makes the book light up. The entire story and it's fast but understandable pace is amazing. If you love this book, which you should! You need to read the rest!

    Loved

    Have read the books in the series that came before this. Loved them all. In this one, I liked the leads, Savannah and Ken, but I really loved "Jones" and Molly. They made the book. Am of course, like so many others waiting for a happy ending for Alyssa and Sam.

    An enjoyable read

    Kenny is a hoot, and he and Savannah together make a fun story. Savannah is plucky, smart, and stubborn, and I like her immensely. But what's with continually trying to sacrifice herself so Kenny can get away, when he's highly trained for the situation they are in and she has absolutely no skills in that direction?

    Good Main Characters

    This book was my least favorite out of the Troubleshooter Series so far, but it's still a GOOD book. The storyline for Wildcard and Savannah was excellent. I loved these characters and look forward to learning more about them in future books.

    The WWII storyline with Rose and Heinrich was sweet, but I didn't really connect with Jones and Molly the way I usually do with Brockmann's characters. (I'm sure there are other readers that think I'm crazy.)

    Still, this is a GOOD book and an excellent series. I felt that it was a slight dip in the usual Awesomeness that is the Troubleshooter Series, but it's still worth the read

    Enjoyable Read

    This was the second book that I have read in this series and I really liked it. I was introduced to Ken (Wild Card) in the last book but really enjoyed reading more about him. I loved his character with Savannah and also the characters of Jones and Molly. I could have done without the side story of Rose and Heinrich and found myself skimming through most of that. I am still pulling for Sam and Alyssa to get together and can't wait to read the next books in this series.

    BIG Let Down!

    Dis-appointing. I usually love her books, but this didn't cut it. I wanted to read more of Ken and Savannah's story, but again, Brockman is jumping all over the place. We have the story of the grandmother, which does pertain to the book, but then we have the whole Allysa/Sam/Max Bhaget story, mixed up with the Grady Morant/Jones/Molly story. This one wasn't just all that good, Brockman needs to stay with the general characters and stop trying to blend stories. Sadly dis-appointing. I think I will stay with Amy Fetzer

    Good

    This was my third book by Ms. Brockman and it was good. I thought it would have been much better - and have much much more action. I loved the remance between Jones and Molly. I have to say, I don't like that Ms. Brockmann has one or two other storylines going in her books. I find that it takes away from the main characters. That is the only criticism I have with her. So far, 'Bodyguard' (the first book I read) is my favorite.

    My first S. Brockmann book but definitely not my last!!!

    This is the first Suzanne Brockmann book I read and it is awesome. Very sexy, fast-paced, and so so smart!!! I am a big fan of Sandra Brown's and have read everything that she has written and didn't think I could find a replacement, but I was wrong. This book sizzled! I love that there are several plots to keep track of and the WWII story interwoven was excellent and not at all boring! Nothing is sexier than a Navy Seal on Team Sixteen!

    The Best

    I absolutely LOVED this book... Call me crazy, but I was very drawn to the romance that blossomed between Savannah and Kenny. I absolutely fell in love with him. :) He's the kind of man I need in my life. ;) Anywho... I would recommend this book to anyone. I love Suzanne Brockman to death and I just can't wait to read more.

    Two thumbs WAY up!!!

    When someone recommended this book to me, I figured I would end up reading the same boring fluff that a majority of writers today try to pass off as "suspenseful" fiction. I couldn't have been more wrong!!!! I love the way Brockmann combines several story lines in order to keep the reader on his/her toes. After finishing this book, I even picked up some of her earlier books (to discover the stories of the other SEALS) and have been pleased with those as well. Buy this book -- you won't regret it. I can't wait for her next book to come out!!!

    this book was fantastic. i read it in a day,it was just to good to put down. i made the mistake of reading this book before reading the first few books in the series,but i am having fun catching up on what i've missed. i am really looking forward to the book that comes out when sam and alyssa can find happiness together.

    Wonderful as ever!

    Out of Control was fantastic, as all of Suz's books are! If you liked this one, though, I'd recommend going back and reading the earlier books of the SEAL Team 16 Troubleshooters series. Also, look out for two new books in the next two years. There will be one on Sam Starrett and Alyssa Locke, our own star-crossed lovers!

    You won't be able to put this one down!!!!

    Suzanne did a superb job with this one!! I read this one in two days, I just couldn't put it down. Wildcard and Jones are a hoot. You'll be laughing and crying at the same time. This is definately one you're not going to want to miss!!!!!
