Suzanne Brockmann’s seamless blend of heroic military action and intense passion inspired USA Today to call her “a superstar of romantic suspense”—and for years her award-winning Troubleshooters books have been must-reads for fans of sizzling stories of action and adventure. Now the New York Times bestselling author shoots to thrill again with Do or Die, an electrifying new novel that is certain to win Brockmann new readers and delight devotees. Navy SEAL Ian Dunn went rogue in a big way when he turned his talents to a lawless life of jewel heists and con jobs. Or so the world has been led to believe. In reality, the former Special Ops warrior is still fighting for good, leading a small band of freelance covert operatives who take care of high-stakes business in highly unofficial ways. That makes Ian the hands-down choice when the U.S. government must breach a heavily guarded embassy and rescue a pair of children kidnapped by their own father, a sinister foreign national willing to turn his kids into casualties. Shockingly, Ian passes on the mission for reasons he will not—or cannot—reveal. But saying no is not an option. Especially not for Phoebe Kruger, Ian’s beautiful and unexpectedly brash new attorney. Determined to see the abducted children set free, she not only gets Ian on board but insists on riding shotgun on his Mission: Impossible–style operation, whether he likes it or not. Though Phoebe has a valuable knack for getting out of tight spots, there’s no denying the intensely intimate feelings growing between Ian and Phoebe as the team gears up for combat. But these are feelings they both must fight to control as they face an array of cold-blooded adversaries, including a vindictive mob boss who’s got Ian at the top of his hit list and a wealthy psychopath who loves murder as much as money. As they dodge death squads and play lethal games of deception, Ian and Phoebe will do whatever it takes to save the innocent and vanquish the guilty—or die trying. Praise for Suzanne Brockmann “Brockmann strikes the perfect balance between white-knuckle suspense and richly emotional romance.”—Chicago Tribune “Brockmann is a master of adventure, drama, passion, and suspense.”—The Tampa Tribune “[Brockmann] brilliantly combines superbly crafted, realistically complex characters with white-knuckle plotting.”—Booklist

--Read up to 19% but think I'm going back-I feel like I started 3/4 of the way through a series or something so REWIND...figuring out a better order to read the series in.
I made it to 87% and found myself doing anything to not listen to another word from Phoebe the female MC. She started out okay, she was educated, well spoken, a lawyer. She slowly lost her brain cells. She went into dangerous situations thinking she was the only one who could save the day, not with ...

Brockmann gives good story. What can I say? Even though I suspect I would not get along with a real SEAL (and vice-versa I'm sure), I sure am a sucker for their fictional representations. Charming alpha, spirited female along for the ride, thrills, great secondary characters - she nailed it again. A...
