AudioJules and Robin Hot Target is the book that introduced me to gay romance Before this book I didn t now it was a genre and I had no idea how big my obsession would become Now I own possibly thousands of mm romance and have no hope of ever reading them all I have read all the books in this series multiple times and I have my favorite characters Robin and Jules are definitely one of them No they do not get an HEA here but they do get one so don t give up The MF characters aside from Alyssa and Sam Max and Gina I don t really care about The stories are good but I don t get excited for themI highly recommend this story The audio was good The male narrator did a fine job His voice didn t match the male characters for me but that s not his fault He is very talented and while I wish his voice was better suited I did still enjoy the

sending the threats Cosmo along with Nash Tess Deck Murph and Dave all from book 7 become her bodyguardsecurity teamAlso in this book is Jules Cassidy a gay FBI agent who has been in almost all the other SEAL 16 books He s sent out by the FBI to help investigate the threats While he s there he runs into his former live in lover who broke Jules heart Jules also meets Jane s brother Robin and finds himself hopelessly attracted to him though Robin claims to be straightThere are about 5 billion problems with this book The biggest in my opinion being that like half the main characters were utterly unlikable I couldn t stand Jane She was manipulative selfish inconsiderate sleazy and just damn annoying Her brother is a total prick uses woman and is just an asshole Adamn Jules ex lover is pretty much a male slut completely out for himself Patty Jane s assistant was such a total twit How anyone could be as stupid as her is beyon me Then there s Cosmo I didn t dislike his character in the book but Brockmann did him a serious disservice In the previous books she d built him up to be this really mysterious character who you are just dying to Soul Unchained (Sons of Wrath, know about a real serious guy with maybe with dark secrets But in Hot Target he pretty much doesn t fit that role at all He just didn t fit what she d built him up to beThe storyline waseh It had its good points and bad pointsBrockmann may also have gone a bit overboard with the homosexual angle of the story What was supposed to be a secondary plot almost entirely took over the story It was a bit unexpected Maybe I would have found interest in it if I d even remotely liked Adam and RobinThe books was just very superficial It jumped around too much mistreated characters had characters acting in ways that made no sense and just didn t capture my attention in the least I had a really hard time finishing it The only redeeming uality of the book was Jules who is such a fabulous character His emotions in Hot Target were wonderfully portrayed That alone was all I liked about the story 35 starsHoly crap Bestselling author Suzanne Brockmannnows exactly what makes hearts race and pulses pound peril and passion No one succeeds 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 Hot Target 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 nown for carrying out covert missions too volatile for official US military action But the first case. .Is Sending The Threats

not easy when the guy he s coming to like blows hot and cold and is in the generaleasy when the guy he s coming to like blows hot and cold and is in the general of a crazy stalker aiming at his sister But Jules has one hell of a lot of self controlAdd in Adam Jules s ex who is a promiscuous type of guy and has the role opposite Robin spending time issing him on camera and nothing is going to be easy for these menCosmo is also a wonderful character He s a huge muscular silent Navy SEAL on the surface He has a fearsome reputation with his team and outsiders This is partly to hide the fact that he is a softy inside He is completely wrapped around the finger of his sweet but slightly crazy show tune loving mother And he falls fast and hard for JaneJane is the author and director of several movies She had enough of a previous hit to get backing for a new picture a WWII bio picture that has both a straight and a gay love story in it It s the gay story which is bringing the film and her both good and bad attention On the even worse attention side it puts her in the sights of a stalker who is furious at her choice of historical gay guys Even though one of the men involved in WWII is her source and advisor the man he loved left him after the war and lived a closeted life And some of the people who admired that man and his family are furious to have him portrayed as gay Someone out there is willing to do whatever he can to stop the picture being madeJane is a strong character a woman with goals and ambitions She plays the bimbo when it gets her something useful in the dog eat dog world of Hollywood But she is genuinely fond of her little brother Robin and determined that her story of suppressed and unrecognized love should make it to the screen She hates leaning on anyone even someone big and strong like Cosmo And she is determined to handle things herself much to Cosmo s dismayI love the characters in Suzanne Brockmann s books I enjoy the ensemble cast which doesn t lose sight of the main characters romance The thriller aspects are well done and characters are rarely stupid or in danger without good reason She s willing to make things go wrong in serious ways and yet delivers heart aching sweetness between loving couples If you like MF I urge you to read this whole series in order It begins with The Unsung Hero and Tom the MC of that one is just a wonderful guy Although her SEALs and FBI and Troubleshooters men lean a bit toward the perfect they all have flaws and self doubts enough to make them feel real And they are seriously excellentIf you don t like MF much you can read the three Jules and Robin books I referenced above They make a nice sweet MM arcIf you hate MF then don t go there All three of the books have an MF couple and the sex is explicit for them than the guys Given that Hot Target was first published in a mainstream series in 2004 Suze was leading the way Even genre MM was in its early days and for a book that was destined to hit the NY Times Bestseller list this was probably a wise choice Hot Target is a book that no doubt led many romance readers toward MM and an acceptance of gay love stories as than a match for straight ones For that alone I m delighted it was written But on its own merits it is also a book that makes me smile and ache and care and reread Multiple times Highly recommende. 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 brotherDetermined 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 uiet 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 illing ground that may trap them both in the crossfire From the Hardcover editio. ,
Actually mostly liked this oneRight away this book had four things in it s favor 1 New to me characters I don t recall Cosmo from the first four books but I liked him Jane was great too Patty came around big time from her starry eyed beginnings of a na ve intern and Robin was a drunken lush with massive issues but I could see his good ualities attempting to shine through Wayne was interesting and I liked how expectations were twisted with him and Patty Hell even Adam had a couple of good moments near the end there He s still a douche though 2 No Sam and Alyssa I hated their toxic attraction to each other and that s all it was The only good thing they could ever say about each other was how sexy the other looked Their courtship was drunk sex and insults Not a strong foundation for the HEA they apparently got in the previo This was a reread for the I don t now howmanyth time I had this book in paperback and it was battered enough that I saw a 5 hardcover and bought that Suzanne Brockmann is my favorite author of contemporary MF romance and in this book she gives Jules her gay FBI agent his own romance threadThis book is part of the Troubleshooters series but it can be a starting point I read it first You will miss some of the secondary character by play Also at the beginning Jules meets up with Adam his ex boyfriend While I don t think Adam ever appeared on page before he has wandered through Jules s backstory in previous books But this holds together as a solo readIn most of this series the author writes about one couple who gets a solid HFNHEA and other couples on their way to their romances or separating or after the HFN This book has two main romance arcs and the HFN is not Jules s MM romance but the MF relationship of Cosmo and Jane There are two books for Jules and the actor Robin whom he meets here This one is bittersweet the next Force of Nature is HFN and the third All Through the Night A Troubleshooter Christmas gives them their HEA But Cosmo is also one of my favorite of her straight SEAL MCs so it works for me a longer arc for Jules and a nice romance for CosmoOne of the things I love about Jules is that although he s a stellar FBI agent smart courageous and an excellent shot he s not the I

Richter takes on is anything but under the radarHigh profile maverick movie producer Jane Mercedes Chadwick hasn't uite 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 threatsWhile 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.
