    Nowhere To Run is a double reissue of two of Brockmann’s earlier titles Both were originally published in 1995 but stand up pretty well today There’s nothing super remarkable about either of these stories but it is Brockmann so you know the writings above average and while they’re fairly simple in the plot department they’re also credible romantic and ultimately satisfying She always manages to add these little details to her characters that make them relatable and damn if she doesn’t continually create to die for heroes; Sexy mysterious self sacrificing and always willing to shed a tear in the name of love I think I’ve fallen for every single one of them Here we get to know police partners Jim Keegan and Felipe Salazar as they protect their potential lady loves from the bad guys and fall hard in the process The sunny Florida setting here was fantastic a nice bit of escapism for a snowbird like myself with palm fronds sandy beaches and loads of action on boats and the clear blue seas of the Gulf of MexicoFirst up was NOT WITHOUT RISK 3 stars which gives us school teacher Emily Marshall and Jim’s story Lovers 7 years ago Jim broke Emily’s heart but as it turns out he had his reasons they always do Jim’s never uite gotten over Emily while she’s still in the anger phase This may have something to do with how he ended things the morning after they first slept together Anyways when Emily discovers that her new wealthy boyfriend is importing drugs she goes to the police willing to do anything to keep them off the streets and away from her students Seems simple enough allowing one of officers to pose as he brother to gain access to the yacht where all the deals seem to be going down But hello wouldn’t you just know it Jim her Jim Jim from 7 years ago is the one assigned to go undercover Looks like she’ll finally learn why he left Gotta admit his reasons surprised me Jim cries uite a bit here a little too much and Emily plays the anger card a little long but I enjoyed the suspense in this one a bomb on a boat always assures some fun times The second book is A MAN TO DIE FOR5 stars and I loved this one; Carrie Brooks and yummy undercover bad boy Detective Felipe Carrie is leaving her job at Seaworld when she stumbles upon a gang of bad guys when it looks like they’re going to do bad things to her their leader locks her in the trunk of a car to protect her Weeks later she spots “Carlos” at a black tie event and blows his cover with the crime syndicate he’s infiltrating sending them both on the run Felipe is super yummy all messed up because he’s been undercover for so long he doesn’t really know who he is any Great secondary characters and a running theme with “Te Amo” which Felipe says to Carrie way too early during a night of unexpected passion and then spends the rest of the book afraid she’ll find out what it means It was so romantic “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”Yup with to die for heroes well written romance and a credible plot as with all of Brockmann’s stories even these older ones you can’t go wrong Cheers

    You can find this review in English belowNot Whitout RiskEn mi última reseña me uejé de ue a la historia le había faltado drama pues entonces no me voy a uejar ahora de ue le ha sobrado ¿no? No hay uién acierte la verdadPudiera ser ue la historia es un poco antigua pero me inclino a creer ue la autora se le fue la mano con el melodramaEsta es una de esas historias ue pasados unos días después de leerla no consigo recordar nada remarcableLa protagonista es TSTL piensa ue cualuiera puede ser un poli y ue puede tomar decisiones ue afectan a la operación policial Y encima le aguanta al protagonista todas las tontería ue tiene ue no son pocas No mi protagonista favoritaEl héroe es el rey del drama salido de un mal New Adult Se pasa toda la historia uejándose y lloriueando de ue no merece ser felizsipese tipo de héroeY el romance ¿ué puedo decir del romance? Es un romance de segundas terceras oportunidades El héroe fue un auténtico patán en el pasado y lo vuelve a ser esta vez pero no hay ue preocuparse la protagonista le da una tercera oportunidad Esta vez sí ue me uedé con la sensación de cuando no si el héroe la iba a dejar tirada de nuevoEn fin una historia para olvidarNo creo ue lea la segunda historia A Man to Die ForNot Whitout RiskIn my last review I complained about the story's lack of drama famous last words so I don't think I should complain now for the amount of it on this one shouldn't I??It could have been that the story is dated but I'm inclined to think that the author overdid the melodramaThis story has been one of these you can hardly recall after a few daysThe heroine was TSTL she thought that anyone can be a police officer and thought that she had a say in the police operation and she put up with all the nonsense the hero throw her way Not my kind of heroineThe hero is a drama king all the time whining and complaining about how he doesn´t deserve happiness yep that kind of heroAnd the romance what can I say about the romance? It´s a second third chance romance The hero was a total jerk the first time and he did it again the second time around but no worries the heroine gave him a third chance I was left with the feeling of when not if the hero would left the heroine againIn short a story to forgetI don´t think I´ll try the second story A Man to Die For

    This book was okay It is a reprint of 2 of Brockmann's earlier titles which were published in 1995The first was Not Without Risk The hero Jim Keegan and the heroine Emily Marshall had been lovers 7 years before When she found out that her current boyfriend Alex was a drug runner she agrees to have a police officer go undercover as her brother to catch him That police officer turns out to be Jim This is a type of plot that I don't particulary care for in that I like to read about characters from their first meeting not while they are reuniting but I realize that's just me The author did a good job with the story though and I found I didn't mind too much The way they worked through their problems seemed believable The suspense plot was fairly light and not explored in great detail This is romance than suspense It does that job pretty wellThe second book was A Man to Die For The suspense part of the plot was better developed than the first novel It started well with undercover cop Felipe Salazar locking Carrie Brooks in the trunk of her car to save her from some bad guys and to keep his cover going Later they are on the run together But in this book there was a plot device that I absolutely hate not just sorta don't like SPOILERSThey are on the run and she thinks he's a bad guy and doesn't believe he's a cop Everytime he convinces her to believe him something happens to bring up some doubt and she doesn't believe him This happens 3 times even after she has said she loves him and will marry him I hate it when the heroine doubts the hero This is overused plot device in my opinion I want to see a woman standing by a man even in the face of apparent proof he is a bad guy That's a moving love story to me And it happened at least 3 times in this book Felipe was a wonderful character The way he loved her was very well written He deserves better than Carrie This is a common failing with Brockmann's books in my opinion Her male characters are usually fully developed and sympathetic than the females and I many times wonder why exactly the hero fell in love with her Still it was an okay read Just 3 stars because I'm grading her against herself and her recent books are much better

  6. Terry Walker Terry Walker says:

    This was an entertaining mystery set in Florida with heavy romance laced thru it But not too much to ruin the suspense

  7. Tina Tina says:

    Liked the first story better than the second Both are less intense than Brockmann's newer books although they still pit the flawed good guys against the evil bad guys And love triumphs in the end

  8. Alger Smythe-Hopkins Alger Smythe-Hopkins says:

    If this is the kind of book that you like then this is a good oneA double hitter of connected stories both taking place in the same fictional city modeled on Tampa Another link is that the love interest in the two stories are magazine uality police officers with troubled pasts that in the first story are partners and in the second are working together to expose corruption in the department Aside from that there is not much difference in the books the women are smart pretty and single and the narration relies heavily on descriptions of just how hot the one thinks their particular match is in an extraordinary level of details about their hair and eyes and the sexy sex scenes are pretty sexy and graphic in to a degree that will only seem adventurous to the straight laced but are really well done As you would expect the plots are essentially an excuse to get the protagonists together and keep them that way ninety percent of the narrative tension would go away if the characters spent moments talking to each other rather than just ogle and screw to express how they feel Anyway to my surprise these books are actually very enjoyable and certainly better than the usual run of romance writing The characters have actual character the plots are a cut above that of most rom coms and even though the suspense plots are just foolishness they are at least believable I discussed this novel with the woman who gave me the book in exchange for a pile of Patricia Cornwells I knew that she was a big fan of Brockman so I was circumstantial about how I thought the people behaved and their lack of emotional intelligence To my surprise my friend was even cynical about Brockman's writing than I was She simply enjoyed it for what it was Good for her

    NOT WITHOUT RISKThis one is really only worth 3 stars It is and early romance by Suzanne Brockman but not as good as her other early work This one is about Emily a high school teacher in an poor school and Jim an old boyfriend and detective with the police force They meet up again after 7 years when she reports that the man she is currently dating is maybe smuggling drugs Sparks fly immediately and it is clear that they both love each other and always have He has a martyr thing going and refused to be happy with Emily 7 years ago and still doesn't feel worthy of her now He broke her heart and she is very leery of him nowA MAN TO DIE FORThis one is a good 5 stars Sexy romance and great suspense plot Felipe is undercover when he first meets Carrie late at night in the parking lot To protect her he stuffs her in the trunk of her car She was not a happy camper even thought Felipe went out of his way to be kind Six months later she spots him in a fancy restaurant and promptly blows his cover in front of two very dangerous people Felipe grabs her and runs She freaks and is not trusting even when he tells her he is an undercover cop It doesn't help that Felipe is being set up for a double homicide by a mole in the station It doesn't even take 24 hours before these two can't keep their hands off each other Very sexy I love the love on the run plot
