I love Suzanne Brockmann books, a lot of action and some romance....perfect. Her characters are realistic...none are perfect in character or looks which make it so much better than a 'romance' novel. A lot of action and witty dialogue...which I love. ( )

Vinh and Hannah. There's always this theme of past and present colliding in Brockmann's SEAL books. Missed opportunities that come back around. Star-crossed love untangled. ( )

I'm sorry to say that I didn't like this one much. I believe that the plot about Murphy/Hannah and Izzy/Eden didn't do it for me.
In the first place, I believe that Izzy deserved someone better, someone more down to earth to balance his "craziness" and to make him feel really appreciated and deserving of some respect (after all he's the Goofus of the team and deep inside he's "jealous" of his friends because they are married with wonderful women) but, I guess he did the honourable thing and we really can't fight love, so...Eden Gillman it will be.
Murphy and Hannah didn't so it for me and I can't even understand why. They didn't click or warm my heart. Nothing more to say.
And finally, finally, Sophia/Decker/Dave. I love this one ending; finally Sophia realized that her happiness was just a short distance away. I love Decker but Sophia and Dave were meant for each other.
In general, another great story full of twist and turns and things blowing. ( )

Troubleshooters series #13

Vinh Murphy & Hannah Whitfield; Izzy Zanella & Eden Gillman

Vinh and Hannah have been best friends for years. Hannah was the one who introduced her longtime friend, Angelina, to Murphy and who quietly stepped aside when the two of them fell in love and married. A little over a year ago, Vinh was part of the Troubleshooters, SEALs & FBI teams trying to track down the stalker of a Hollywood producer and was devastated when his new wife was caught in the crossfire. Hannah was devastated by the loss as well and was also recovering from a (police) work injury she received which stole her hearing and left her with a limp. They both were practiced at drowning their sorrows in drink and drugs. Vinh would show up every few months and crash at her place, but one visit evolved into a drunken sexual encounter (their first) and Vinh trying to access a weapon to harm himself because he couldn't deal with the grief and guilt.

They didn't see eachother again for six months, until he showed up at her cabin clean and sober after voluntarily spending time in rehab. Unfortunately, the man who Vinh felt was responsible for Angelina's death (Tim Ebersole, the head of a Neo-Nazi hate group), and whom Vinh himself had threatened on several different occasions, has turned up dead, and due to Vinh's excesses, he cannot remember exactly where he was or what he was doing at the time of Mr. Ebersole's murder. Now he is wanted for questioning by the FBI. He and Hannah work together to try and piece together the lost months of his life in order to establish an alibi. They find themselves in danger at Ebersole's compound after discovering more than they bargained for.

There is also a great subplot between Izzy Zanella and Eden Gillman, Eden meets Izzy when she suddenly pops into town looking for her brother, Danny, after being dumped at a Krispy Kreme by her loser boyfriend. Danny's out of town so Izzy agrees to let her stay at his place while waiting for his return. Six months later, Izzy receives a broken nose and an order to marry Eden after Danny finds out she is pregnant. Eden was not trying to trap him, she was just trying to buy a little time without revealing who the real father is because he's a dangerous criminal who raped her. Even though Izzy knows he's not the father (they weren't together), there is something about Eden that makes Izzy want to protect her, so he pretends the baby is his and marries her. Their pretend marriage evolves into one that's real. ( )

Book description
Vinh Murphy–ex-Marine and onetime operative for the elite security firm Troubleshooters Incorporated–has been MIA ever since his wife, Angelina, was caught in a crossfire and killed during what should have been a routine bodyguard assignment. Overcome with grief, Murphy blames the neo-Nazi group known as the Freedom Network for her death. Now, years later, Freedom Network leader Tim Ebersole has been murdered–and the FBI suspects Murphy may have pulled the trigger. To prevent further bloodshed, Murphy’s friends at Troubleshooters scramble to find him and convince him to surrender peacefully.

Murphy himself can’t be sure what he did or didn’t do during the years he spent mourning and lost in an alcohol-induced fog. He does know he occasionally sought solace from Hannah Whitfield, a former police officer and the very friend who’d introduced him to his beloved late wife.

But Hannah, still grappling with the deafness that resulted from an injury sustained while on duty, was fighting her own battles. For years Hannah had feelings for Murphy, and one painful night their suffering brought them together in a way neither expected–and both regretted.

Murphy is ready to rejoin the living. As always, he finds himself knocking on Hannah’s door, and as always, his longtime friend welcomes him back into her home. Yet even as Murphy slowly rebuilds his splintered life, he continues to fight his growing feelings for Hannah.

Then he learns of Ebersole’s murder and comes to believe that the Freedom Network has targeted him–and Hannah–to avenge their leader’s death to violence. Now Murphy must face the terrifying prospect of losing another woman he loves.

As the Troubleshooters desperately search for him, Murphy races toward a deadly confrontation with the Freedom Network and ultimate choice: surrender his life in hopes that Hannah will be spared, or risk everything to salvage whatever future they may have together.
