Delves into the adrenaline-rushed world of counter terrorism--and taps into the real passions of its brave men and women. A story of action, intrigue, and romance, as a U.S. Navy SEAL and an FBI agent race to unravel a mystery--while confronting their own unresolved feelings for each other. In his career as one of America's elite warriors, Lt. Sam Starrett can do no wrong. In his private life, Sam--the king of one night stands--has done little right. Now, he's waiting for a divorce and determined to stay active in his young daughter's life. But when Sam shows up at the door of his ex-wife's home in Sarasota, Florida, he makes a grisly discovery. His daughter is gone and the body of a woman lies brutally murdered on the floor. FBI agent Alyssa Locke's relationship with Sam has been overwhelmingly intense and nearly catastrophic, yet it refuses to end. The last time she saw Sam was six months earlier, when they worked together to stop terrorists from assassinating the U.S. President. Much to her dismay, Alyssa is assigned to lead the murder investigation and once again the two are face to face. When explosive information surfaces linking Sam to the still unsolved assassination plot, the stakes are raised. With her reputation hanging in the balance, and her loyalties in question, Alyssa is faced with an impossible dilemma: arrest a man she believes to be innocent, or risk her career. While Alyssa tries to fight their intense attraction, Sam is determined to heat things up between them once again. And the complex case pushes them both to the wrong side of the law--and on the run to discover the truth. As more agents step into the chase, and with Sam's daughter still unaccounted for, neither Alyssa nor Sam can predict just how deadly hot this situation is about to become.… (mer)

Gone Too Far takes place about six months after the events in the previous book, Into the Night. I think readers unfamiliar with that book will struggle to catch up in this one. For fans who've been eagerly waiting for the steamy, antagonistic, on-again off-again relationship between Navy SEAL Sam Starrett and FBI agent Alyssa Locke to reach its culmination, the wait is finally over.

Sam is going to Florida to work out a child custody agreement with ex-wife, Mary Lou. When he arrives he discovers a dead body, presumably Mary Lou, but there's no sign of his daughter, Haley. Meanwhile, Alyssa has been tasked with finding and arresting Sam for murder.

The Troubleshooters books are kind of unique in that they have multiple POV characters, and more than one story arc going on. I don’t think it’s a series one can easily pick up in the middle and understand. Traditionally there is a main story, in this case Sam and Alyssa. There's usually a teaser couple that will be featured in a future book. Here it is Max and Gina. There's a plot line featuring Sam's boss, SEAL Lt. Tom Paoletti and his fiancee, Kelly, who were in the first book of the series and are in some legal trouble themselves. Finally, Sam’s Uncle Walt and Aunt Dot are featured in flashbacks. Walt was one of the Tuskegee Airmen and he and Dot found love during segregation and Jim Crow.

I wasn't much of a fan of the Sam/Alyssa story but I ended up liking Sam much more in this book, probably because we get to know him better. I always enjoy the WWII backstory and can't wait to get to the future book featuring Max and Gina. Overall, much more enjoyable than I expected. ( )

Gone too Far has been building since the first book in this series. Expectations were high and it was almost inevitable that the book was a little bit of a letdown. The WWII secondary story line drags a little and the large amount of flashbacks to Sam as a boy hamper the primary story line. It was still a good read, I was expecting a little more. ( )

This book made me so giddy with happiness I would give it 6 stars if I could! (The extra star would be for living up to every one of my hopes and expectations for Alyssa and Sam's story. Rarely is the hope so well fulfilled!)

SPOILERS FROM HERE ON OUT:

Loved the Alyssa and Sam resolution so, so much, and was happily surprised by the bonus Tom/Kelly and Max/Gina storylines. I also enjoyed the flashback storyline, both in the way it continued with the WWII theme from the other Troubleshooter books and in how it supported Sam's backstory. Which was beyond wonderful, as far as I was concerned. After leaving me a little wanting in #5, I was also really happy with how the Mary Lou story evolved--a complete and welcome surprise. I hope we get to see more of her as a secondary character in future books.

Oh, and the brand new Paoletti Security Agency? I am so on board. ( )

Following on from events in the previous book, Sam Starrett is waiting for the divorce papers from his to-be-ex wife and as he can't get in contact with her he goes looking for her, to find a dead body that looks like her in the house and his daughter missing.

With the help of Alyssa Locke he goes to find them, although they are both breaking orders with this and he is a prime suspect.

There are parts that work well there are also parts that just didn't really gel for me, I found it entertaining and it kept my attention but sometimes the angst got in the way of the flow. Still entertaining and what I was expecting from it. ( )

Sam and Alyssa. Finally. I'm not sure why I love them as a couple. It's all the little things in this book that make it so good. ( )
