Flashpoint by Suzanne Brockmann

Hero: Jimmy Nash
Heroine: Tess Bailey
Grade: C

Jimmy Nash has already lived two lives - and he can't talk about either of them. Formerly an operative of a top secret government agency, he has found a new job with a shadowy company called Troubleshooters Inc. Created by a former Navy SEAL, Troubleshooters Inc. helps anyone in desperate need - which provides a perfect cover for its other, more perilous objective: covert special operations." "Now Nash and a quickly assembled team of expert operators have come to the earthquake-ravaged country of Kazbekistan in the guise of relief workers. There, amid the dust and death, in a land of blood red sunsets and ancient blood feuds, they must track down a missing laptop computer that may hold secrets vital to national security." To get it done, Nash does what he does best: break every rule in the book and manipulate those who can help him get what he needs. But this time, Nash may have met his match in Tess Bailey, a Troubleshooters operative with all the right instincts - and zero field experience. The deep attraction between them is immediate ... and potentially explosive, with risk at every turn. Now these two professionals must play out their dangerous games in the world's most dangerous place - cut off from their own government, cutting deals with people they can't trust, and guarding forbidden passions that threaten to compromise their crucial mission.

A very good book, one that isn't popular among most of Suz's fans. I'm very easy to please because a book doesn't have to be perfect for me to enjoy a book. I only ask that the author supply me with a hottie of a hero, a strong storyline and a happy ending and if they've got those three things, I'll overlook the little inperfections in the story and enjoy the ride the book is taking me on.

That's the way Flashpoint was for me. Jimmy Nash was one bad ass mother effer, who hates relationships of any kind. He's hardened by the life he's led and he's got demons that he's running from. He's cynical and yet there's a vulnerability in him that you can't help but fall in love with, not to mention that he's hotter than Hades. He works for Troubleshooters Inc and he's on a case to find missing laptop that is crucial to the safety of the United States, so with a team they set out to Kazbekistan to retrieve with no help from the U.S.

Tess Bailey on the other hand is grea at doing her job, the only thing working against her is that she's had absolutely NO experience in the field, all of the work she's done for the government was behind the scenes and out of the line of fire. She's down to do whatever it takes to get the job done though, the things she does to prove herself totally cracked me up, oh gosh, Tess Bailey was a grea match for Jimmy Nash because she's a little spitfire and that meshed well with Nash's surly personality, their romance was so cute and it had me sighing all over the place because you have a guy like Nash who is just the absolute worst with women, suffering because he wants so much to be with Tess but because of the demons that he's running from, feels unworthy of love. It was wonderful to read about Tess fighting her way into his heart and giving him the space he needed to work things out for himself.

It was great to see familiar faces from the previous Troubleshooters books and the chemistry between Tess and Nash was a joy to read about.

Now do get me wrong, it's not one of my most favorite books in the whole world, or even of SB's for that matter, but it WAS good. I even liked the secondary storyline between Decker and his woman. The book was filled with nonstop action in hot territories and it was great to get caught up in the action of Suz's books.

I definitely recommend this book for those of you who want to read an action packed romance, it's a cute read aside from all of the things blowing and what not...you'll enjoy I'm sure.

Peace out.
