Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
Carrie Brooks left her home, her job,her very existence;she was on the run with a murder suspect, a man whose only prior introduction to her was as her kidnapper.
She had no reason at all to trust him. After all, he'd proved that he was the enemy-hadn't he?
Felipe Salazar had to prove that he was an innocent man. He'd been in disguise foer so long,that even he wasn't certain who he was anymore.
But he knew one thing-he'd waited all his life for Carrie.
And he wasn't about to let her go.....
I'm always eager to try any of Ms. Brockmann's work,whether they are older editions or her newer works. This is an older one.
This book has everything,tall dark exceedingly handsome and somewhat dangerous man,a typically beautiful blonde woman,murder, mayhem, sex and of course a good dollop of love.
This is not a bad book,the story is that Carrie recognises Felipe in a restaurant from when he locked her up and then left her,going to confront him, she doesn't realise that he is an undercover cop and she has just blown his cover in front of the mobsters, to protect her and himself, he takes her and runs.
They have to prove that the trumped up charges of murder against Felipe are wrong and bring down the bad guys, while trying to stay alive.Along the way they fall in love.
This sounds rather contrite, but actually it works quite well, Ms. Brockmann has written a rather good romantic thriller, which bears some resembelence to her SEAL stories.They don't fall into bed at every whim, but really do try and clear Felipe's charges.The action is quite sound and the story and charactors work well with the tension kept high even with that romantic flair running through it.
This is a book i would definatley recommend this book.

Good early Brockmann 27 Sept. 2007
By Bookivore - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Cassie Brock first meets Felipe Salazar as Carlos, a hoodlum who locks her in the trunk of her car to keep the gang he's with from doing something worse.

Six months later, she blows his cover at a fancy restaurant and before the criminals he's having dinner with completely figure it out, Felipe grabs Cassie and goes on the run - knowing that there's a bad apple in the police department and he can't turn there for help. Very soon the news is out that Felipe is a murderer, guilty of a grizzly recent murder.

The story is fast-paced and the romance is appealing, but there are some rough edges and a less than fully fleshed out plot. A subplot with Felipe's brother seems to be tacked on, for example, rather than flowing naturally.

All in all, recommended but not one hundred percent 'to die for'.

"TE AMO" A MAN TO DIE FOR- plus its really good 14 July 2012
By Buggy - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I liked this one very much and at the end decided to rate it 5 stars, however now a few days later as I sit down to write my review I find that I can't remember a thing about it. So I guess you could say this is a good, quick romantic suspense but also completely forgettable.

It is Brockmann though so the writing is fantastic- she always adds these little details to her characters that make them more relatable and I ended up falling pretty hard for Felipe. He's a great hero all sexy mysterious, bad boy on one side and sweet, noble protector on the other. The accent didn't hurt either.

As others have mentioned the heroine is kind of annoying, that girl needed to make up her mind about trusting her man because gah, the back and forth. I did find her job at SeaWorld fun and different though especially since she's from Montana. There are some good secondary characters here too, Felipe's recovering addict brother and their evolving relationship and history is well done and the bad guys or who is the bad guy kept me guessing.

One of my favorite themes within this story is "Te Amo" Felipe says it to Carrie in the throes of early passion and then spends the rest of the book afraid that she'll find out what it means.
"She pushed his hair back from his face in a gentle, loving caress. It warmed him, and he smiled back at her, whispering words of endearment in Spanish--words he wouldn't have dared say to her in a language she could understand." "Te amo. Te adoro."

Carrie Brook is heading home after a long day with the whales at Sea Circus when she stumbles upon a gang of "bad guys" Events quickly escalate until Carlos; the leader locks Carrie in the trunk of her car rather than letting the gang do "unsavoury" things to her. For some reason Carrie can't stop thinking about him, her criminal saviour with the kind eyes and aura of danger, a man of contradictions. Months later Carrie spots Carlos (now Raoul) at an upscale Miami restaurant and confronts him, bad idea Carrie.

Felipe Salazar is deep undercover in an organized crime syndicate, one slip and Laurence Richter takes him out, and that's just what Carrie's little show ensures. Grabbing the girl they make a run for it, but not before Felipe takes a bullet to the leg. When the news breaks a story about an undercover cop going bad -framing him for murder, Fil knows that he's as good as dead. He can't let Carrie go now either because they'll kill her too, the only way he can guarantee her safety is to essentially kidnap her and try to explain along the way. The problem is he's been in disguise, living someone else's life for so long now he's not really sure who he is anymore.

Yup with well-rounded characters and a credible plot, as with all Brockmann's stories (even these older Harlequins) you can't go wrong. Cheers
