Opening Line: “All early-morning conversation in Captain Joe Catalanotto’s office stopped dead as everyone turned to look at Lucky.”You really can’t go wrong with any of the books from Suzanne Brockmann’s Tall Dark and Dangerous series. Each is well written with a delicious alpha male hero and just the right amount of action, suspense and melodrama to keep you coming back for more. All the stories are loosely connected (following Seal Team 10’s Alpha squad members) yet still different enough tha...
One of my favorites of the TT&D series. Lucky figures out that he's not all that and turns into a real boy. The mystery of the rapist and the way they find him is well done and realistic. The emotions are real and you get to see almost all the characters from the other books. The end scene where they rush to save the heroine is very touching and Lucky really goes all out to save her and then to convince her he loves her. He puts his ego right out there for all to see. Very well done.
more like 3.5...but gotta round down (sorry!)So I haven't read any of Suzanne Brockmann's books before but I heard some good things about this one so I thought I'd try it out. So since this story is part of a series I had to ignore a lot of the back-stories that kept popping up on previous couples in this series which wasn't a problem except I got so confused by the shear amount of them I got somewhat annoyed by the end of it and pretended they were random side characters rather than a group so
The cover makes me want to weep. Its just so terrible. Lucky is supposed to be good looking and the Sydney is supposed to dress in loose fitting clothing. I hate when the cover of the book has absolutely nothing to do with the story or the characters at all. *grumble* It was pretty good though. After reading a lot of the books in the series I'm a bit meh towards them now.
Different from the rest of the series in a very good way.Liked it tremendously!
Ladies and gentlemen, she has done it. Suzanne Brockmann has done it! Okay, so I'd fallen for Lucky during his brief appearance in Frisco's Kid, and way more so in The Admiral's Bride, but I had no idea I'd love him THIS MUCH! I really hadn't expected to ever love a TDD character as much I love Blue, but good golly here we are! Lieutenant Luke "Lucky" O'Donlon's a gorgeous blonde hair, blue eyed, walking-talking Ken doll, (as Syd often refers to him as "Navy Ken"). He's a ladies man who's never
Loved, loved, loved this one! Navy SEAL Luke "Lucky" O'Donlan has been swaggering through nearly all of the Tall, Dark, and Dangerous books, doing his SEAL team ten stuff with aplomb and loving and leaving women at the speed of light. I really didn't like him all that much, though I wouldn't have turned down the chance to gaze at him adoringly drool uncontrollably ahem, watch him leave the pool after swimming laps. He seemed like a great team member, a fantastic friend, and a true serial dater.
I like the suspense and mystery of this series. And of course the Navy SEALS. I am disappointed in how the female characters are portrayed. As a female vet, I understand independence but...if you're not trained or educated in the behavior of these "bad guys" then please shut up about going off by yourself. That pig headedness is foolish and dangerous. Do they have a deathwish? Also the lack of communication, assumptions and manipulating are ridiculous and insulting. Cmon, Ronnie yelling into the...
Great storyline, as always, by Brockmann!What a terrible cover, though! Suzanne Brockmann joked about it on her Facebook page, said she used to offer a "GET LUCKY Cover Fix-It Kit" on her website. Readers could send an SASE and she'd send back a smiley-face sticker and instructions as to how to apply it to the cover of their book!The fix?
What do you do when the perfect blonde Ken doll walks in? Sydney Jameson just shakes her head, they're not going to get rid of her. A friend was brutalized and she's going to work on the task force and write the exclusive when they catch this guy. Lucky O'Donlon isn't getting the reaction he's used to from a woman and why does she keep slipping and calling him Ken? This unlikely pair get to know each other as only Suzanne does it and I loved it. Had me laughing out loud in places, but the suspen...
Like any of Suzanne Brockmann's TD&D books it was fantastic, but honestly the cover nearly killed it before I even read it. Could they have any worse image of Lucky? I really don't think so.This is a case where if I saw this book without knowing anything about the author or the series I wouldn't have picked it up.
Two-haiku review:He's gorgeous, cockyShe's smart but dresses dowdyHe tries to charm herEye of beholderLooking beneath the surfacePlus good mystery
2.5 Stars. I’ve enjoyed some of Brockmann’s novels, so when I came across this 2000 category romance I thought I’d give it a try, despite the guy on the cover being completely out of proportion. I’ve talked to authors who have written category romances who said they didn’t even see the cover until they received the finished book. With the majority of sales being subscription-based, I imagine the publisher doesn’t invest a lot in refining the cover art.Anyway, I’ve not read a lot of category roma...
RomanceWhat I love about Suzanne Brockman's stories is that she captures the growing intimacy and romance of two souls, not just the physical attraction ... as well as the great alpha male hero's of her tales. I find her plots believable and interesting, for the most part. The characters stay true to who they are while allowing for growth and surprises; character consistency. Brockman is inventive; each couple in this series has a unique story. The end of Lucky' story is fitting for him. The end...
I can't tell the ages of Tasha and Thomas. In Frisco's Kid, they're about 15 years apart. She was five; he was a high scool senior or had graduated. In this book, the age difference seems to be about ten years
Captivating This story was vert captivatinf. The story line of the rapist had me, then Lucky wanting to protect what he loved was heartfelt even if he didn't quite know how to say the right words to make Sydney know he was serious.
I like Sydney. Luke is harder to take. I’ve never been a fan of the rake turned romantic hero trope. In this case there was never any explanation given for why he was so anti-commitment in the first place, so it’s hard to believe in the change of heart.
Another good one in the series. Loved Lucky and Syd together.
Am really enjoying this series
A fun read. Even though it uses some pretty common tropes it does it in a way that still kept my interest. A bit of diverting fluff that was well worth the time.
This book has wonderful characters and great suspense. I love the flow of the story. Lucky finally met his match. It's a very enjoyable book!
Of course I loved it. I've loved every word Brockmann has written.
Entertaining with good storyline and strong MCs. I pretty much enjoyed the story from beginning to end. Tough subject matter.
Was ok, didn't love that Lucky was such a manwhore but book was well written that wasn't big deal. Np.

3.5 stars (Cheesy cover notwithstanding)Rating: Steamy thriller with hot SEALs!Here’s where not keeping up with your book reviews can bite you. I *thought* I’d read this book, but I wasn’t sure, so I read it again. Not that it’s not a good book, but sometimes, a new cover can really throw you.Short and sweet review: Lucky’s a Player, and so you know he’s gonna fall hard for a girl eventually. And this is his story, tied up with a serial-rapist/killer who may or may not be a SEAL or former-SEAL.
Good read.I was looking forward to reading the story of lucky since he first appeared in this series. I really loved how miss brockmann wrote the h/h in the first half of this book. He was oh so sure of himself and she made fun of him (Ken). But somewhere halfway through she stopped making jokes and turned into a pool of selfdoubt (not pretty enough) which killed the banter and quality talks between them. But miss brockmann's heroes are always better fleshed out than the heroines, so the repetit...
I know someone recommended this specific book to me, but I can't remember who. I just know I wouldn't normally pick up a book in the middle of a series, but this can easily be read as a standalone. You get a peek at who the past couplings were, but the story if firmly on Lucky and Syd.This is another one of those hot guy who is a player finds the one woman perfect for him. And a little bit of the girl who doesn't think she stands a chance because he's too perfect. I loved that when Lucky tried t...
So totally laughing at myself right now. I thought this was the first book in the series. So, take it from me folks, you don't have to read these in order!This series was recommended to me by a friend when I said--help! I just watched Generation Kill and just simply need to be immersed in very hot military men... who don't just rescue some admiral's daughter who is randomly kidnapped, hijacked, etc. (I'm looking at you Seal whatever book!). This was great. Lucky was just awesome. Syd was charmin...
5 Stars! ~ Luke aka Lucky has movie star looks and knows he's a magnet to women.

Her neighbour is a victim of a brutal rape. Sydney pieces together that this isn't a one time thing, and that there may be a serial rapist out there. Using that power, she manages to get herself assigned as part of the task force. She'...
