I was especially surprised (and touched) by the dignified way Suzanne Brockmann portrayed the several gay characters, all while making the focus of their individual stories not specifically about them being gay, but rather about their LIVES and their hopes and dreams. When the young adult m/m romance angle is finally revealed, it is equal parts inspiring (thinking of good times to come for those involved) and also sobering and a little heartbreaking to remember that we, as a society, still have a ways to go before same-sex relationships are fully accepted.
Growing up, I'd wished there were more stories about teenage guys like me, at odds with themselves yet desperately wanting/needing a relationship and a chance at love. I can only thank Suzanne Brockmann for writing about these young gay characters with such love and acceptance. Without that, it was still a great, compelling story. But WITH that love and acceptance? It's amazing, heart-warming, and so very needed in this world. Together, the two halves make one awesome whole. <3
One of the things I like most is the family dynamics between Izzy, Danny, Eden, Gen, and Ben. I really enjoy seeing them work together as a big family to solve issues. Sometimes they don’t always use the conventional way … but it is something good when it happens.
One of the other things that I like is that she writes about highly arguable issues in a way that don’t make you feel like you are being preached at or whacked over the head with while she stands on a soapbox defending her stance on the matter. I don’t agree with everything she thinks, just a lot of it, but I do enjoy her talent as a writer and I’m a big girl so I can accept that someone is not going to agree with me 100% about everything.
The only gripe I have is that her novellas are so expensive and my library hardly ever, I mean they got just one of them has them. The only reason I was able to grab this one was because it had a big sale, I guess in preparation for next month’s release. I really hope my library is able to get it because it seems like I’ve been waiting for forever for a Brockmann book to come out. I know she has had issues with writer’s block, but I can still get excited about it and I am.
There are ever-changing povs in Ready to Roll as readers are privy to the thoughts of several of the new guys as well as several old favorites. As in other books in the series, there are multiple plot lines ongoing (something this reader loves), an update on past favorite couples, and a good set up for the next book. One of the plot lines in this story features Ben Gillman, Danny & Eden’s 16 year old brother as he experiences “first love or crush” and learns how to handle both a homo-bully and a big disappointment. I enjoyed Ben’s story and the character development he showed. I also loved the role Izzy plays in this one as being inside his head is always a hoot! Dan & Jenn are tested to the limit – charged with surviving their own Hell Week, aka newborn with colic. Several past favorites come riding to the rescue.
As always, Brockmann manages to showcase some of the social issues that she’s passionate about while delivering a good story. A reoccurring theme seems to be one of survival against all odds – both personal and professional. Another great addition to the series! A Must Read!
This novella is a great re-entry into Troubleshooters. Catching up with the characters from the last few full-lengths is awesome. Meeting new characters is an appetite wetter. I should NEVE have read the sneak peek at the end-- cannot wait for July now.
Only complaint is the character backstory reminders and reiteration of military terms-- I know it's done to fill in gaps for newer readers, but she taught me all that jargon way back in Tall, Dark, and Devastatingly Studly.
Welcome back, Suz. It's great to be following you again.
