New York Timesbestselling author Suzanne Brockmann knows exactly what makes hearts race and pulses pound: peril and passion. No one succeeds more brilliantly at blending these exhilarating elements in breathtaking novels of men and women forced to grapple with the deepest emotions and the highest risks. And there’s no better proof than her new novel of suspense:Hot Targetaims to thrill on every level. Like most men of action, Navy SEAL Chief Cosmo Richter never learned how to take a vacation. So when he finds himself facing a month’s leave, he offers his services to Troubleshooters Incorporated. Founded by a former SEAL, the private-sector security firm is a major player in the ongoing war against terrorism, known for carrying out covert missions too volatile for official U.S. military action. But the first case Richter takes on is anything but under the radar. High-profile maverick movie producer Jane Mercedes Chadwick hasn’t quite completed her newest film, but she’s already courting controversy. The World War II epic frankly portrays the homosexuality of a real-life hero–and the storm of advance media buzz surrounding it has drawn the fury of extremist groups. But despite a relentless campaign of angry E-mails, phone calls, and smear tactics, Chadwick won’t be pressured into abandoning the project. Then the harassment turns to death threats. While the FBI appears on the scene, nervous Hollywood associates call in Troubleshooters, and now Chadwick has an army of round-the-clock bodyguards, whether she likes it or not. And she definitely doesn’t. But her stubbornness doesn’t make FBI agent Jules Cassidy’s job any easier. The fiercely independent filmmaker presents yet another emotional obstacle that Cassidy doesn’t need–he’s already in the midst of a personal tug-of-war with his ex-lover, while fighting a growing attraction to Chadwick’s brother. Determined to succeed–and survive–on her own terms, Chadwick will face off with enemies and allies alike. But she doesn’t count on the bond she forms with the quiet, capable Cosmo Richter. Yet even as their feelings bring them closer, the noose of deadly terror all around them draws tighter. And when all hell erupts, desire and desperate choices will collide on a killing ground that may trap them both in the crossfire. From the Hardcover edition.… (mer)

Troubleshooters novels usually have two main stories, plus a third related to something that happened during WWII. In Hot Target the main story features Cosmo Richter, the minor story features FBI agent Jules Cassidy, and the WWII story is told through the making of a movie called American hero.

Cosmo, has always been one of my favorite Team 16 SEALs. He's mysterious, quiet, and has eyes like a husky dog. While on leave to take care of his injured mother, Cosmo takes a quick job with Troubleshooters to work as a bodyguard for J. Mercedes Chadwick. She's an ambitious movie producer who has extremist groups threatening to kill her for daring to focus on a gay World War II hero in her latest film. I was disappointed that Cosmo wasn't developed as well as I'd hoped. The other books in the series seem to make him out to be this strong, very independent, quiet navy SEAL member, who supposedly is some kind of legend for killing so many enemies during a botched foreign raid. As much as I wanted to love Cosmo's story it was just too contrived. Why did Cosmo have to belong to PFLAG, with an actual card in his wallet, for readers to believe that he was sympathetic to gay people? A tremendous build-up that ultimately falls a bit flat.

FBI agent Jules Cassidy has a talent for attracting unsuitable men. Hot Target is where he first meets Robin Chadwick, who plays a gay role in the movie, and starts to come to the realization that he could be gay himself. He is incredibly attracted to Jules. Jules has been hurt before and doesn’t want to be go through it again, knowing that he could easily fall for the hot actor in a flash.

Soon the more compelling triangle of Jules-Adam-Robin heats up the story. When Jules' former boyfriend, Adam, is cast as Robin's lover in the movie, things heat up. Brockmann portrays the triangle with such sensitivity and compassion, the reader is swept away with the romance of it all.

Troubleshooters novels are always fun, fast reads and this one was too, despite my disappointment with the Cosmo storyline. ( )

I'm surprised how much I liked this, considering I don't read romance or suspense. I guess I was in the mood for something different and this was well enough done to keep my interest. I don't expect to hunt down more of the series, though. ( )

Cosmo and Jane. Probably my favorite couple other than Sam and Alyssa. I am completely committed to this series. I'll probably read it as long as she writes it. ( )
