"Exciting romantic suspense"
Her friend told her that her best chance of rescuing her
Uncle Alex resides with US Navy SEAL Ken ?Wildcard?
Karmody. Desperate, Savannah von Hopf is in San Diego
hoping to persuade Ken to help her with the ransom exchange
in Jakarta, Indonesia. She met Ken once while in Yale so
how does she explain the ?coincidence? that has him
changing her flat tire near his home unless she tells the
truth. Savannah and Ken are immediately attracted to one
another, which makes her cowardly and unable to request
what she must. They even make love that night.
When she finally tells him why she is there, he is angry
that he was sucker punched by a beautiful woman again.
Still, he cannot allow her to go by herself. Soon the duo
is struggling to keep alive, unable to differentiate
between terrorist attacks and friendly fire as other
American operatives propelled by Savannah?s grandmother
make a rescue attempt.
OUT OF CONTROL is an exciting romantic suspense novel that
first builds up the cast so that the readers know whose
whom before going into an incredible warp speed. The
flashbacks through Rose?s autobiography add depth, but also
jars the reader from the prime plot. Still, the story line
is fast-paced, but it is the details that make this an
exhilarating tale such as the audience trekking along with
the stars in the jungle. Though a wild spin, Suzanne
Brockmann never allows her novel to spin OUT OF CONTROL so
that sub-genre fans have an exuberant experience.
