I discovered Suz Brockmann when she had written her second TS book and I was hooked. I totally fell in love with the team, especially Sam and Wildcard. She had these wonderful heroic hunky men but still with vulnerabilities, she wrote with such chemistry and passion. All the good points of her writing have been reducing as the series has gone by and the last book, her last TS book for a while, is the dealbreaker for me. I am struggling to even finish it.

Her talent in writing characters such as turning Ken into a heroic alpha lead was brilliant, but as she turned to writing about more "ordinary" men, she got on her politically correct hat and lost the humour. Every character must have some flaw, every family has alcholic/druggie/domestic abuse/gay in it and this now overwhelms the story. I honestly don't care if the hero/heroine are black/white/red (I read werewolf romances, FGS) but she throws everything into the pot, deaf/black/asian/abused/GAY - I highlight this last one because SB is well known for her agenda on this point - in earlier books, with Jules, it was fine as she wrote Jules so well, I didn't care if his HEA was another man, I just loved the character. But in this latest book, Ben aged 15 uses "I'm gay" in every blinking speech! Nor is he written/speaks as a 15 yo boy.

The whole book is angsty discussions between Dan/Jenn and Izzy/Eden - nothing happens, the plot and action is negligible. The remainder of the well known characters are hardly touched upon. The conflict between Izzy and Eden is so contrived ("trust") that the book could have been wound up in a single conversation.

Most readers love these books (well, the earlier ones) for the SEALS doing what they do best - going out and saving the world.

Format: Hardcover
I first encountered SB's books via the Harlequin Mills & Boon TDD series, "Prince Joe"; at that time she was several books into the Troubleshooters main stream series and I started out with Book 1 and read in orderly progression. The books were very enjoyable because they were what "romantic suspense" should be - romantic and suspenseful, with realistic characters and believable relationship issues.
This last book, or the last one for now whilst she goes on "hiatus", has several flaws, realistic characters and believable relationship issues being at the core of these, becuase SB gets on an anti-heterosexual soapbox and stays there; it was more a gay propaganda leaflet than romantic suspense novel, which is exactly the problem. SB's desire to support her son is admirable but her constant "attitude" sails dangerously close to anti-heterosexual bigotry in places; I wonder what SB and her novelist husband Ed Gaffney's heterosexual daughter thinks of all this "air time" lavished on her brother - perhaps SB should remove the rafter from her own eye and consider the possibility of her daughter being a vicitm of "obedient child syndrome"?
I don't mean to be harsh, but what irritates me is that SB did this before, a great deal better, and with no soapbox attitude of "anyone who disagrees with me is a bigot" in All Through The Night: A Troubleshooter Christmas, which was witty, tense, thoughtful, romantic and suspenseful. Her attitude is also a bit insulting to those she is championing; a person's sexuality is not the sum of them - Jules Cassidy worked so well, particularly in the previous books, because he was a handsome, intelligent, brave, tough-as-nails FBI agent that was incidentally homosexual, not because he was a homosexual handsome, etc.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I've not read any books by Suzanne Brockmann before and I realised, before starting this one, that it was part of a series. Fortunately it didn't matter that I hadn't read the previous books as this story worked well as a stand-alone novel with just a few references to events which I imagine were featured in a previous book.

"Breaking the Rules" follows two couples and their ups and downs as they find themselves drawn into a complex situation trying to remove an adolescent boy from his awful parents to trying to rescue a shy and terrified victim of trafficking for prostitution. The two men, Izzy and Dan, are Navy SEALS who have come back to the US after injury in Afghanistan. Izzy got married a year before but his marriage barely lasted a week; he plans to go and see his wife Eden to see her one last time before divorcing her. Dan is trying to decide whether his relationship with Jennilyn has a future, as well as worrying about his younger brother Ben and his sister Eden. But when Ben stumbles upon Neesha who has escaped from imprisonment in a prostitution ring he finds himself as a witness in the middle of a lot of trouble.

This book was always exciting with a fast-moving plot (no-one seems to ever get more than a couple of hours' sleep before the next disaster) and it was never predictable, apart from perhaps the romance aspect. I liked all four lead characters although I wasn't always sure that I worked out what was going on in Eden's head. I struggled with Izzy's name - "Izzy" for me is short for Isabel and so a woman's name and I kept getting confused when the name was applied to a muscular, confident SEAL.

I liked the fact that our heroes weren't always on the right track when following leads and that things didn't always work out well.
