Publisher Description


Suzanne Brockmann’s seamless blend of heroic military action and intense passion inspired USA Today to call her “a superstar of romantic suspense”—and for years her award-winning Troubleshooters books have been must-reads for fans of sizzling stories of action and adventure. Now the New York Times bestselling author shoots to thrill again with Do or Die.
Navy SEAL Ian Dunn went rogue in a big way when he turned his talents to a lawless life of jewel heists and con jobs. Or so the world has been led to believe. In reality, the former Special Ops warrior is still fighting for good, leading a small band of freelance covert operatives who take care of high-stakes business in highly unofficial ways. That makes Ian the hands-down choice when the U.S. government must breach a heavily guarded embassy and rescue a pair of children kidnapped by their own father, a sinister foreign national willing to turn his kids into casualties. Shockingly, Ian passes on the mission for reasons he will not—or cannot—reveal.
But saying no is not an option. Especially not for Phoebe Kruger, Ian’s beautiful and unexpectedly brash new attorney. Determined to see the abducted children set free, Phoebe not only gets Ian on board but insists on riding shotgun on his Mission: Impossible–style operation, whether he likes it or not.
Though Phoebe has a valuable knack for getting out of tight spots, there’s no denying the intensely intimate feelings growing between Ian and Phoebe as the team gears up for combat. But these are feelings they both must fight to control as they face an array of cold-blooded adversaries, including a vindictive mob boss who’s got Ian at the top of his hit list and a wealthy psychopath who loves murder as much as he loves money. As they dodge death squads and play lethal games of deception, Ian and Phoebe will do whatever it takes to save the innocent and vanquish the guilty—or die trying.

Praise for Do or Die
“This is action-adventure on steroids with an interwoven romance or two, maybe three or even four in full bloom or on the cusp of blossoming. From the start, I’m recommending that you keep an eye out for the next book in this Reluctant Heroes series. Here’s a vote for Martell Griffin’s story. [Suzanne] Brockmann writes with the imagination running free and on the wild side. What’s not to love about that? . . . Suspense remains high at octane levels, and the romance is served up with witty banter, ultrasexiness and very poignant moments.”USA Today
“Fans of Suzanne Brockmann’s military suspense novels need not worry. There’s a new cast of intriguing, smart and buff characters (both the men and the women), but the adrenaline-driven pace and crafty plotting are pure Brockmann. . . . As the team members dispersed, I looked forward to reading their tales, knowing that master storyteller Brockmann will deliver them as she did in the seventeen Troubleshooters books.”Tampa Bay Times
“Brockmann effortlessly and expertly tosses hundreds of details into the air and juggles them with brilliance. The first in her Reluctant Heroes series, the novel will captivate readers with its intense, action-filled plot, alpha-and-a-half hero, and his smart, perfect-for-him heroine, as well as secondary characters who contribute pathos and humor. Enthralling and breathtaking.”Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Yay! Another Brockmann

It's always good to dive back into Suzanne
Brockmann's world, where plots are complex, heroes are human, and love prevails. Do or Die is perhaps a little too complex for my tastes, but I hung on and kept up with the twists and turns. I might have tapped 5 stars for this review, but I did find that a lot of the characters' voices sounded too similar. Everyone seemed to think the same way, regardless of their background. "And yes," "But okay," These phrases popped up in everyone's thoughts, and got a little tiresome. And while I applaud Ms. Brockmann's cause of teaching the world that being gay is a normal thing, I find I'm a little tired of that particular soapbox in her books. Did any of these irritants make me stop reading? No. No more than the quirk of Ana Steele's Inner Goddess stopped me from enjoying the 50 Shades books. Keep up the good work, Suzanne!

Good read

I've been a Suzanne a Brockmann fan for years and waited a long time for her recent book. I thought it was good, but could have been great. A little slow in places as she developed all of the characters and complicated plot. I'm assuming she did this to set up the next book, but it was clumsy in places with character development. Still enjoyed reading, but not the page turning - I have to finish the in one day - book that I've come to expect from her.

Not my type

Don't care for the homosexual relationship in the book. Will not read any more of her books.
