Yes, at times a little too angsty, and somehow the suspense plot to me wasn’t all that suspenseful, compared to some of SB’s past work, but it was Brockmann, you know?

Lots and lots of btockmann, plenty of humor although with writing for a character like Izzy Zanella, how can it not be funny?

Book review: Suzanne Brockmann’s *Breaking the Rules (Troubleshooters)*

The plot revolves around the youngest Gillman, year-old Ben, who happens to be diabetic and view spoiler [gay. I’m guessing in the future we’ll be seeing more of Ben and less of her very popular gay character Jules Cassidy, since Jules already got his HEA. Nineteen year old Eden, back from Germany where she went to get over the stillborn death of her baby and husband Izzyand working as a Las Vegas view spoiler [stripper hide spoiler ] wants to have Ben live with her. But she needs money to do that view spoiler [ hence the stripper gig.

This friendship brings all kinds of trouble down on Ben and his family, and comes to a head late in the story. Dan and Izzy are on an op that goes wrong, resulting in a near fatal injury to Dan. Jenn rushes to Dan’s side, and the reader sees how much Jenn means to Dan. But plain, average big-girl Jenn still has some doubts about drop-dead-gorgeous Dan, and what he sees in her. Jenn and her self doubts Izzy realizes that after 10 months of Eden refusing to see him, their marriage is really over.


While on leave, he heads to Las Vegas to start divorce proceedings. Imagine his surprise when he sees where Eden is working Maybe they could reunite in order to gain custody of Ben? Is it really over between them The fight to get Ben away from his troubled parents can’t be accomplished with just Izzy and Eden–Dan’s help is required too. Estranged siblings Eden and Dan must put their differences aside if they’re going to help Ben. But helping Ben also means helping his new friend Neesha who has some baddies from a human trafficking ring on the hunt for her.

Breaking the Rules — All About Romance

This brings danger down on Ben and the two couples trying to help him. Will Izzy and Dan be able to put their differences aside and come up with a plan rulew they have to save their loved ones? Will Jenn finally believe that Dan really loves her, and not just needs her? Will Izzy and Eden ever believe what the other one tells them?

Or is their reconciliation over before it even started? Trust, trust, trust is the issue in this story. Eden doesn’t trust Izzy. Izzy doesn’t trust Eden. Jenn doesn’t trust Dan. Dan doesn’t trust Izzy. My God, no one in this book trusts what the other person tells them. The Gillman family has to be the most dysfunctional that I’ve read about in a while.

No wonder Dan sometimes acts like a judgmental ass! But Jenn is such a positive, calming influence on him, and I’m glad he could appreciate her–I had no doubt in this book that Dan really loved Jenn.

Smokin’ hot sexually, but a big failure to communicate verbally with these two. Neither one trusted the other when they said “I love you”.

These two drove me nuts! I wanted them to sit down and talk and really listen and for once believe what the other was telling them! Lots of arguing, lots of rubbing each other the wrong way as usual. But at the end of the book, you can see these two with a common goal came to an understanding, and I can see them as actually being friends! SB put him out there front and center, and he delivered.

Rles funny, he’s irreverent, he’s passionate, he’s an ass And he loves with all his heart. Yes, he would be exhausting to live with, but your life would never be dull. I think SB did him proud. This was her love story to him, and he shined. So fans of the TroubleshootersI think you should like this one. Fans know to expect that SB brockmwnn her views about certain subjects, and as expected, she works them into the storyline.

Bgeaking writing is vintage Brockmann and loaded with detail and humor. You’ll love the calm, steady, Jenn, you’ll appreciate the man Dan becomes, you’ll marvel at Eden’s gutsiness and new found maturity, and you’ll root for Izzy to get the HEA that he doubts will happen for him. You’ll feel the love that Dan has for Jenn, and you’ll tear up when she finally realizes it; you experience the heat between Eden and Izzy and hope that it can translate into something more, and you’ll cheer when Izzy and Dan show what Navy SEALs are made of in the exciting conclusion.


Your heart will break when you hear the truth about Eden’s past, and the unspeakable things that were done to brave Neesha. You’ll get the warm fuzzies when Dan and Eden finally reconcile their differences. I can just imagine the get-togethers SB doesn’t leave much hanging, except maybe the career paths of Dan, Eden, and Jenn. We might have to wait suzanen for that, because this is the last Troubleshooters story for now.

I just hope Suzanne Brockmann tge forget about these characters when she finally writes Jay Lopez’s story. After all, Jay, Mark, Izzy and Dan are best buddies–they have to be in it.

I still love sweet, funny, adorable, goofy, and protective Izzy, and I came to care about Eden much more than I had before in this. Was I satisfied with their Suzwnne

Breaking the Rules

For the most part, yes, but it sure was a winding and mighty bumpy road to get there. View all 15 comments. Apr 28, Shelly rated it it was ok Shelves: I have loved 14 out of the previous suzannd Troubleshooters novels, but this one, the one I’ve been waiting for every since Izzy was introduced in the series, is the absolute worst.

Into the Fire was not that interesting to me, but at least it had a good plot and good characters, I just wasn’t that into it. Breaking the Rules is just god-awful. I don’t know whether to compare it to The Jerry Springer Show or a Lifetime movie or one of those ridiculous after school specials that were full of cheese. R I have loved 14 out of the previous 15 Troubleshooters novels, but this one, the one I’ve been waiting for every since Izzy was introduced in the series, is the absolute worst.

Really, if it wasn’t for Izzy, I wouldn’t have even gone past the first quarter of the book. To start with, I get that Suzanne Brockmann is a proud gay rights advocate, especially on behalf of her son. I love Jules Cassidy, and adding him to the series was a stroke of genius. He’s smart and funny and sexy and extremely competent at his job, excellent character all around.
