Stop reading the reviews and read the book! These characters behave as their flesh and blood counterparts would. You feel what they feel, you crave what they crave. Ms. Brockman is superb at creating a realistic relationship from an improbably thrilling plot. She does it again. Can we please have a 4 1/2 star rating?

This book is the perfect love story, Harry and Alessandra, both having their own problems, family, money, etc. but when they met because her husband was from the mafia and Harry was an FBI agent their story begins.
The story of the mafia is almost relative, all the time you want to know what would happen to Harry and Alessandra, it doesn't matter if they are in danger or what is happening to the other people of the book. If you read this book as a perfect love story you will like it, if you read the book as a police book, you will not like it because are many things in the investigation that you don't know where they come from.

Great story and the leading woman is likeable. I love body gaurd stories. Brockmann is a very good writer, I have yet to be disappointed.

Unlike the other reader in this review, I thoroughly enjoyed the fact that the hero, Harry, was having a difficult time emotionally with the loss of his son and he felt a tremendous amount of guilt. When someone cannot identify with this type of emotion, they have not dealt with the pains of losing someone very close. I was glad to see that he finally realized he "needed" somebody. Certainly our heroine's emotional being grew also. I think Suzanne does an excellent job in not only telling a great story, but also in developing her characters along the way so that in the end you never forget them. In fact, George shows up again in Out of Control.

The book is very fast-paced, never a moment of boredom. Never a dull moment. The romance between the protagonists wonderful. However, the relationship between the secondary protagonists, George and Nicole remains unfinished, and I can't help but thinking about them. I mean, it's obvious that they're still in love with each other even if they're divorced. They just can't get over their differences because there's not enough communication between them. They just look for ways to hurt one another. He was even sleeping with an exact duplicate of her, apparently fell in lover with HER, a pale copy of the real thing, and then left her because she'd betrayed him. I really didn't like that part. And still, when he left her, he still couldn't see past his ex's front the love beneath. I don't know about you, but when I read a romance novel, I like the good guys to be happy. I like everything settled and finished. It's still a very good book, though. Lots of heartfelt moments. Just a bit of unfinished business.

Not SB's best but certainly worth your time. I love all of her books. This one is slightly off beat and fast paced. Love the interaction between the hero and heroine. Sexy love scenes. Go for it!

Peter Falk is definitely not who I picture as Harry. I prefer to think of a brown-eyed Mel Gibson. Mmmm... Remember in the Lethal Weapon series how reckless and suicidal Mel's character was? Also, it is far more appealing to think about Mel in jeans and a T-shirt. I may be naive, but I found it disturbing the way these government agents thought nothing of "pillow talk" to obtain information. Harry's profanity seemed realistic to me. Any cop that deals with these mob types isn't going to talk like Prince Charles. Did anyone else think that Baby Jane Doe had actually been adopted by the mob guy? Whew, glad I was wrong.

When she wrote this novel. The realism is there, as are the wisecracks and the emotional pull, but it leaves something to be desired. The subplot with George, his ex-wife and current boss, Nicole, and his current mistress and ex-wife-lookalike Kim left me with a bad taste in my mouth, mostly because it was unresolved and bitter. But I guess that's more of Brockmann's realism there because for most people, divorce can be unresolved and bitter, and to a greater degree than what is displayed in this novel.
Once again, the movie projector in my mind chose people to star in this novel, most noticeably Gary Sinise as Harry. (Love Gary, he's got passion and talent. Here's looking at you, kid.) I couldn't think of someone to play Alessandra, and I didn't warm to her very well because I'm not classically gorgeous nor have I ever lived in a mansion on Long Island, but I have had some pretty awful haircuts.
I think I felt the most for Shawn, Harry's son, and his friendship with Mindy. That was poignant and so true to life. I was glad to get that little lift at the end when the two of them come face-to-face five years later. Brockmann needed a little more tact when handling the question of Shaun's sexuality. Not bad for a sophomore attempt, but it needed a little more delicacy.
The high points are the sex scenes, which Brockmann nailed (excuse the expression) perfectly. I love getting inside of her male character's heads instead of the usual women's reactions. Sex seems to be a much more primal instinct for men according to my observations, but Brockmann's characterizations go to a different level when her men are engaged in intercourse.
One thing that should be said here, though: french kissing in the morning pre-toothbrushing is not for the faint-hearted.
