Format: Hardcover
While definitely written in the typical Troubleshooters's format of interleaved subplots told by specific characters' points of view, this novel is a bit different. This one is more suspense plot driven and the subplots stay closer to the main plot throughout the whole story. Not to worry romance devotees. Because most of the romantic relationships are already established and the one that's new moves pretty fast, there are a lot of people getting it on in this book. If you've thought some of the recent books didn't have as much feel-good romance action going on as you'd prefer, this book rather makes up for lost time. There is still character and relationship growth and development but the whodunit is the primary payoff.

Basic plot is that Alyssa takes (yet another "easy") assignment to coach a public figure in self defense while bringing along Sam and some Navy SEALS to decorate the office for a while and thus convince the heckler(s) to back off. But one heckler is close. And far from backing off, amps it up to 11. The easy assignment becomes intense and the pressure mounts. Alyssa and Sam, then Jules and Robin, work on coping with the fact that their chosen mate works in the line of fire as a matter of course, and how to leave their non-pro family members out of the action. Alyssa is also a nursing mom. Having spent last Saturday hiking with a nursing mom who left baby with grandma, the problems Alyssa encountered rang hilariously true.

The subplot with Dan Gillman I found amusing. For everyone who has ever complained that Suz's guys are too idealistic approaching relationships? Meet Dan. Here's a good looking guy looking to get some action on vacation with minimum hassle, while trying to follow the campsite rule of leave 'em better off than you found 'em.

The fifteenth installment of the Troubleshooters series brings back fan favorites, Sam and Alyssa. Alyssa brings her family along on an "easy" assignment to teach Assemblywoman Maria Bonavida and her staff about personal safety and give a little added protection for someone threatening the Assemblywoman. She also brings along "big bad SEALs" Dan Gillman, Jay Lopez, and Izzy Zanella to do a little scaring off by being themselves. It is supposed to be a boondoggle trip for the SEALs who are on liberty and not getting paid for the trip except for airfare and housing. The assignment stops being fun when the threats become more serious. FBI agent Jules Cassidy arrives with his husband, Robin, in tow to add to the investigation.

I'm a bit disappointed in this book. I'm a Sam/Alyssa fan and their story worked of fairly well...though I think Sam was a bit over-the-top in places. Jules and Robin bothered me the most. I loved Robin in Force of Nature because he was fun and smart and in this one he seems to have lost a lot that...he is treated like a small child...a lot. I found it to be a bit demeaning. He was the just "the spouse," who needed a lot of hand holding.

As far as the suspense/mystery goes, Brockmann puts in plenty of red herrings, but I figured the killer out long before it was revealed. A good mystery, but not great.

This is an "in-between" book. Brockmann has put in story arcs with both Gillman and Zanella leaving me a little confused and missing something. There was definitely not enough resolution in this one. I'm thinking this is one of those books you could actually skip in a series and not feel like you missed out on much.

I'm looking forward to the 16th installment (Izzy's story) for more resolution.

I'm not sure what was up with the reviewer ahead of me giving it one star for the price, but having read this book I just have to say it was everything I want in a Suzanne Brockmann book, it made me laugh, it made me happy and at the end it mad me so sad..... that I have to wait so long for the next one. Even with the same characters in the books every book has its own story line and it never feels repetative, unlike some authors I've read lately. I love the relationship between Gillman and Jen and I love that I hated it at first but that Brockmanns writing drew me into loving it anyway. Jeni is one of my favorite characters in a troubleshooter book, not more than Alyssa but she's pretty up there. I was also so glad to catch up with Izzy and what was going on with him, which is one of the reasons I can't wait for the next book because I really want him to get his HEA and I'm hoping in the next book it happens for him. Honestly if you love the troubleshooter books you will love this one too.

It's supposed to be a cakewalk. Alyssa Locke takes her husband/business partner and a group of off-duty Navy Seals to New York. An assemblywoman there has been threatened and they'll talk about security, see what the problem is, and, at least for the Navy Seals, do their best to get laid. But when they get there, they're directed to a heart stuck in a desk drawer--and the cakewalk starts looking more troublesome.

Serial killer 'the Dentist' has had a weird crush on Alyssa since she began investigating his case. He's set the stage and he intends to end it here, in New York, on his home turf. He'll manipulate the team, kill the husband, capture Alyssa, and maybe he'll even kidnap their child and raise him as his own.

Navy Seal Dan Gillman knows he's about to be sent to Afghanistan...again. But two weeks in New York should give him the loving he needs to keep going. Not for him, though, are one-night stands. Two week stands are more like it and the assembly-woman's chunky but smart assistant seems like just the woman to take away his cares. Gillman likes his women, but with his job, he knows he isn't boyfriend material. He'll show her a good time and then move on. Except when Jenn is kidnapped (twice), Gillman discovers a feeling he's never had before. Could he really be falling?

In her Troubleshooter series, author Suzanne Brockmann interweaves the lives of the men and women of Troubleshooters and their Navy Seal allies. HOT PURSUIT gives us an update on many of them (Sam and Alyssa are doing fine except for the serial killer thing, Jules and Robin are also doing well and happy to be living in Massachusetts where gay marriage is legal). Not doing so well is Izzy, who is pining for Gillman's sister, Eden...who won't even talk to him.
