If you don't fall half in love with Nash - you didn't read the book!,

This review is from: Flashpoint (Troubleshooters, Book 7) (Mass Market Paperback)
I love Suzanne Brockmann! There is no other author that can compell me to read until the ugly hours of the night. This book has been one of my favorites and one of the books I return to again and again.
It may be slightly disconcerting to some Brockmann fans because it introduces all new characters with only a small overlap of familiar "friends". Once I got over that, I loved it. Once I finished it the first time, I re-read it within the month.
Decker and Nash worked for the "agency" until they discovered just how expendable their superiors believed them to be. They left the same night, but not before Nash free falls into a hot, passionate and emotionally frightening night with fresh faced, wholesome, Tess Bailey. Next day, both agents are gone.
Months later, Tess quits her job after realizing she will always be turned down for promotion because she is a woman, and too good at her technogeek computer brilliance. Same day, she is on a plane to meet Tom Paoletti, head of the Troubleshooters, Inc. She walks into an interview and straight into Decker.... and Nash. Rapidly, they find themselves heading to K-stan posing as relief workers after a devastating earthquake. Jimmy Nash is melting down from the inside out. He ran away from Tess because he found he cared and that messed him up. Now he can't run. He has to stay and pretend to be her husband and hope he can keep his hands to himself.
This book is brilliant in dialogue. Her wit is ever present. The description of where they are and what they are doing is so vivid, I feel like I watched it in a movie.
Don't let this experience pass you buy. You will put the book down, half in love with the idea of Jimmy Nash.
