Overview

Hot Target (Troubleshooters Series #8) by Suzanne Brockmann

Bestselling author Suzanne Brockmann knows exactly what makes hearts race and pulses pound: peril and passion. No one succeeds more brilliantly at blending these exhilarating elements in breathtaking novels of men and women forced to grapple with the deepest emotions and the highest risks. And there’s no better proof than Hot Target.

Like most men of action, Navy SEAL Chief Cosmo Richter never learned how to take a vacation. So when he finds himself facing a month’s leave, he offers his services to Troubleshooters Incorporated. Founded by a former SEAL, the private-sector security firm is a major player in the ongoing war against terrorism, known for carrying out covert missions too volatile for official U.S. military action. But the first case Richter takes on is anything but under the radar.

High-profile maverick movie producer Jane Mercedes Chadwick hasn’t quite completed her newest film, but she’s already courting controversy. The World War II epic frankly portrays the homosexuality of a real-life hero–and the storm of advance media buzz surrounding it has drawn the fury of extremist groups. But despite a relentless campaign of angry E-mails, phone calls, and smear tactics, Chadwick won’t be pressured into abandoning the project. Then the harassment turns to death threats.

While the FBI appears on the scene, nervous Hollywood associates call in Troubleshooters, and now Chadwick has an army of round-the-clock bodyguards, whether she likes it or not. And she definitely doesn’t. But her stubbornness doesn’ t make FBI agent Jules Cassidy’s job any easier. The fiercely independent filmmaker presents yet another emotional obstacle that Cassidy doesn’t need–he’s already in the midst of a personal tug-of-war with his ex-lover, while fighting a growing attraction to Chadwick’s brother.

Determined to succeed–and survive–on her own terms, Chadwick will face off with enemies and allies alike. But she doesn’t count on the bond she forms with the quiet, capable Cosmo Richter. Yet even as their feelings bring them closer, the noose of deadly terror all around them draws tighter. And when all hell erupts, desire and desperate choices will collide on a killing ground that may trap them both in the crossfire.

Very disappointing considering the other well-written and exciting books in this series. I was very intrigued with glimpses of Cosmo Richter in the past novels but felt really let down as to how his character developed in this one. The heroine was too mouthy, unbelievably dumb (not heroic or brave) and came across as sleazy in some parts. Lastly, if I had known that half the book was about Jules' lovelife, I wouldn't have bought the book. Jules was a fun character but his lovelife should have been a separate book for those interested in reading about it. I ended up skipping over the parts related to this portion.

Jules Cassedy is my favorite character ever. This is a great series with well developed characters who you fall in love with. I appreciate them reappearing from book to book, it's like reading about family. Cosmo is a rock that you don't know how you lived without. The kissing scenes are some of the hottest I've ever read. Well done!! A must read for everyone.

Love this book you can tell the author was truly devoted to the Juls story the depth of the characters was brilliant. Just wish Cosmos story was as intriguing. Don't get me wrong I enjoyed the story there was just more heart in Juls story. Not for homo phobs. I personally loved it

As always suzanne brockmann is in your face direct. She writes with a frankness that makes you love the characters. Lots of action...love jane and cosmo and love jules. Denouement is a little flat but I recommend

This book is really bad. Even the trouble shooters are shallow and trivial. The "guest" characters are impossible to care about. The story line is shallow, trivial and boring. While I wouldn't list Ms Brockman among the great american authors, her previous troubleshooter novels have been acceptable adventure stories and the romance almost realistic. Hot target just isn't. Go ahead and try some of the earlier books in this series, but skip this one.

All of the troubleshooter books are excellent reading. Filled with action and romance. I'm hooked!

I love a good action, suspense romance novel, however, this one takes it too far with the gay characters, and the over the top use of the homophobic statements against everyone who doesn't agree with the authors position.

I have been reading these in order and can hardly wait to buy the next two BUT I have to say this one was a total disappointment. I flew over the first 5 chapters just so I could get to what I thought was the heart of the book wow what a dissapointment. I hope the remaining books in this series are better.

I flew through all 17 books of the troubleshooter series in a month. That's how spectacular they are. But Cosmo Ritcher, Jules Cassidy, and Robin Chadwick are some of my very favorite characters and all 3 were in this book. I couldn't put it down. I love everything Brockmann does.
