Although this book still deals with Brockmann's Navy SEALs, it is a refreshing tangent to go on. Most of her books deal with international intrigue and terrorism so this plot about a SEAL becoming a temporary bodyguard is a good change. Another highlight of this fiction is the relationship between Jules Cassidy, his ex, Adam, and Robin Chadwick. Although some people dislike homosexuality mixed in a heterosexual romance book, I thought it was a breath of fresh air. Most romance books are lacking in focus on more than one relationship, not to mention a homosexual one.

Not only did Cosmo/Jane pairing grab my attention but I also found myself looking forward to hear more from Jules side of the story

Cosmo and Jules are charged with safeguarding hot Hollywood producer Jane Chadwick, who has come under fire (literally) for making a movie dealing with two gay war heroes. A few contrived plot twists find Cosmo and Jane initially butting heads, then coming together as friends and finally burning up the sheets as lovers. More compelling is Jules's struggle to stay away from his egocentric ex, an actor who conveniently lands a starring role in Jane's film, and from Jane's brother Robin, who's so deep in the closet that he has turned to drink.

Another great SEAL/Trouble Shooters series book by Brockmann. I find that once I pick one up I have to read almost straight through. Who needs to work anyway?

Chief Cosmo Richter is on leave from the SEAL team to take care of his mother after she has an accident. Not being one to enjoy idle time, he takes on a cake job for Troubleshooters. Movie producer Jane Mercedes Chadwick has received a death threat and her production company has taken it seriously and hired security for her.

Cosmo is large, scary and has reportly weird colored (light/blue gray) eyes. He is very reserved and a man of very few words. Jane is a driven talkative movie producers who adobts a partygirl image to further her career.

As in most Brockmann novels there are three stories at one. The past story of war vetern Hal and Jack, the potential triangle of Jules Cassidy, his ex lover Adam and the very conflicted brother of Jane, Robin. Robin is referred to as so in the closet, even he doesnt know he is gay.

I enjoyed this quick moving story but it is not one of my favorites. I did not get into the Hal/Jack story at all and I was not really impressed with the Cosmo and Jane story either. They just kind of met up and went to bed, had a misunderstanding type relationship with lots of danger through into the mix. The Robin/Jules/Adam was interesting but not really a love relationship either. Dont get me wrong this was still a great book. I love Brockmann and will read everything she ever writes.

Cosmo's story along with a mini-chapter of Sam & Alyssa. Not as good as some of her others but a decent ending.

Navy SEAL Cosmo Richter offers his services to a private security firm while on leave. His job is protection of Jane Mercedes Chadwick, maverick movie producer. She is receiving death threats. She doesn't take the threats seriously, not at first anyway. Then it becomes apparent that the threats are real and whe turns to
Cosmo for protection...and much more.

I thoroughly enjoyed this audio. The readers brought so much humor into this story. I don't know if I would have enjoyed it as much if I would have just read the book. Several times I caught myself laughing out loud at some of the dialogue between characters.
It is a story about a Navy SEAL who is assigned to bodyguard a very showy, flirty and beautiful movie producer. She is the target of a killer who wants to stop her from producing a war movie/homosexual romance. I would recommend this audio to anyone. I can't wait to find more of Brockmann's work.
