Preview — Hot Pursuit by Suzanne Brockmann. Alyssa Locke is no stranger to dealing with danger. As team leader of the nation's number one personal security company, Troubleshooters Inc.
Guarding lives is her game, and no one plays it better. But her toughest challenge will Alyssa Locke is no stranger to dealing with danger. But her toughest challenge will be protecting herself from a serial killer she's been after for years-known only as The Dentist-who is determined to make her his ultimate trophy.
The assignment was supposed to be an easy one: teach self-defense techniques to a newly elected assemblywoman and her chief of staff after a political controversy generates a blizzard of hate mail-including death threats-from hotheads and cranks. But as soon as she mobilizes her squad of moonlighting Navy SEALs in New York City, Alyssa begins butting heads with the hard-case cop who thinks that the Troubleshooters are chasing shadows.
Until they discover a dead body. And then another. Now Alyssa really has her hands full-bodyguarding two independent, busy women, managing a murder investigation, and trying to find time for her husband, Troubleshooters operative Sam Starrett, and their infant son.
Meanwhile, it wouldn't be a Troubleshooters operation without romantic sparks and heated rivalries-and any time the SEALs of Team Sixteen are involved, there are plenty of both.
But then, while investigating a suspect, Alyssa is ambushed and suddenly finds herself imprisoned by The Dentist. Cut off from everyone she loves and relies on, Alyssa must call upon all of her strength and skill to survive this final confrontation with the sadistic monster, meanwhile trusting that her Troubleshooter teammates, led by her beloved Sam, will reach her before it's too late.

I'm doing a happy dance here, because I'm already anticipating the next book in the 'Troubleshooters' series.
Brockmann left a couple of storylines wide open in this one, but said in her author's notes that she will be following up on those couples who haven't gotten their HEAs in this one.
I guess maybe they haven't suffered enough yet, but that's okay because one of the couples is Izzy who used to irritate me and Eden, and the other is Eden's brother Dan Gillman and brand new Loved it! I guess maybe they haven't suffered enough yet, but that's okay because one of the couples is Izzy who used to irritate me and Eden, and the other is Eden's brother Dan Gillman and brand new girlfriend Jenn.
Dan and Jenn were the romantic equation of this romantic suspense, and they were firey hot together! Who knew that SB could get down and dirty like she did with them? Whew, but they were passionate together, but there's much more to explore in that relationship, and I can hardly wait! The suspense part of the story reminded me of something that Karen Rose who does diabolical killers so well would write.
Kudos to the talented SB for weaving such an interesting suspense plot about a gruesomely twisted homophobic serial killer nicknamed "The Dentist" who likes to extract the teeth from his victims. The basic plot which takes place in one week's time is that Troubleshooter Alyssa Locke is called by her friend Savannah "Out of Control" to help teach some self defense techniques to Savannah's good friend, newly elected New York state assemblywoman Maria Bonavita.
Maria's been getting some hate mail and death threats which for some reason doesn't overly concern the NYC cops , and Savannah thinks it would be a good idea if Alyssa and her husband Sam and a team of moonlighting SEALs look into the situation. What looks like an easy assignment guarding Maria and her friend and assistant Jenn, turns into something much more serious when dead bodies start turning up.
Someone's out to get Maria--or is it Jenn? Or is there another possibility? Alyssa, Sam and her team soon have their hands full, and it's not long before the services of the F. Things get mighty complicated, as Alyssa, Sam and Jules try to put their heads together and come up with a list of possible suspects. It's not until late in the investigation that they know who they're dealing with thanks to Sam's clever thinking , and why.
Looks like Alyssa's old nemesis wants a final showdown with her That about sums up the suspense part, and there's plenty of twists and turns to keep the reader occupied. We get to hear the killer's thoughts, and why he became a killer, but we don't know who out of the possible list of suspects he is. SB tosses out a couple of good possibilities, but I had him pegged early on.
But she still leads the reader on a merry chase all the way up to a nail biting conclusion complete with a little gore , and I swear if it wasn't for the heroics of Sam Starrett who out-thought everyone that the body count would have been a lot higher. I never paid much attention to Gillman before--he always seemed to be one of those characters who was in a perpetual bad mood, kind of humourless, and always fighting with fellow SEAL Izzy Zanella.
But wow, SB gave him a bit of a backstory, complete with a totally dysfunctional family, and the reader gets to see why he's the way he is. I loved reading all that, and I loved the chemistry he had with Jenn. Although I thought he was a bit too calculating in his seduction technique, I somehow knew that Jenn would be able to handle herself with him, and maybe teach him a thing or two.
I loved Jenn. She was not your typical romance heroine. Size 14, attractive but not pretty, tall, bad dresser, smart, hard working but not as successful, rich, or beautiful as her friend Maria I was rooting for her all the way, and wanted her to get the hunky guy! I wasn't too happy with Gillman at first even though he was wildly attracted to Maria, he thought he had a better chance of 'scoring' with average girl Jenn , but I knew even though he didn't that he would lose his heart to her.
I loved that she brought some 'humanity' out in him, loved the conversations they had, and oh boy, their sex scenes Now the question is, is there a future for Dan and Jenn? Jeez, I hope so! Thankfully, the reader gets to check in with some previous characters, including Izzy as amusing as ever, but hiding his pain , Lopez, new SEAL Tom with a surprising secret , Robin and Jules, and there's an update on the families of a lot of previous characters lots of name-dropping in the series--love to read about who's having kids and who isn't.
And oh yes, I almost forgot adorable baby Ash--Alyssa and Sam's 10 month old--he also gets a lot of face time in the book, and has lots of male babysitters! Brockmann also makes her usual case for gay rights which fans have come to expect , but nothing too heavy handed here. I loved this book, and thought it had the perfect blend of romance and suspense, with some very witty dialogue. It moved very quickly, and I was reluctant to put it down, yet I wanted to savor it-- that's a keeper in my book.
I doubt that fans will be disappointed. View all 33 comments. May 18, Theresa Alan rated it really liked it. I read the complete Trouble Shooters series a while ago completely out of order based on what was at the library. Now, I appear to be re-reading this series out of order based on what deals I find on Bookbub. I do love this series, obviously.
What they think is going to be an easy job is quickly made I read the complete Trouble Shooters series a while ago completely out of order based on what was at the library. What they think is going to be an easy job is quickly made far more dangerous after bodies are found. I love the combination of suspense and romance between flawed human beings.
