Izzy Zanella wasn't looking for another reason to butt
heads with his Navy SEAL teammate and nemesis,
Danny Gillman. But then he met Danny’s beautiful
younger sister, Eden. When she needed it most, he
offered her a place to stay, a shoulder to cry
on—and more. And when she got pregnant with
another man’s child, he offered her marriage. But
Eden’s devastating miscarriage shattered their life
together—and made the intense bad blood between
Izzy and Danny even worse.
Now Eden's back, on a mission to rescue her teen
brother, Ben, from their abusive stepfather. Even if
she and Izzy can prove that their broken marriage is
still in one piece, winning legal custody of Ben is a
long shot. But they’re not alone: Danny and his
girlfriend Jenn offer to help, and he and Izzy agree to
bury the past and fight for Ben’s future.
As they plan their strategy, Izzy and Eden grapple
with the raw passion that still crackles between
them—while Danny and Jenn confront new depths in
their own rocky relationship. But events take a
terrifying turn after Ben befriends a girl fleeing a child
prostitution ring. When the young runaway seeks
refuge with Eden and Izzy, her pursuers kidnap
Ben—and a deadly standoff begins. Now, they must
all pull together like never before and strike back,
swift and hard, to protect their unconventional little
family and everything they hold most precious.
Publisher's Weekly gives BREAKING THE RULES
a starred review and says, "In the powerful 16th
Troubleshooter title, Brockmann masterfully weaves
the stories of the Gillman siblings into a single
narrative that reaffirms the importance of family...
The slowly rekindled attraction between Izzy and
Eden is steamy, and Jennilyn is a rock for Danny,
giving romance fans two delightful relationships for
the price of one."
Romantic Times gives BREAKING THE RULES
four-and-a-half stars and a Top Pick and says,
"Fast-paced and filled with emotional landmines... a
great story full of old friends and new adventures."
Marisa ONeill from the BN Heart-to-Heart blog
says: "You know when you hear a Lady Ga Ga song
on the radio - it has a definite sound. You know
when you see a Kate Spade handbag - it has a
definite look. And you know when you’re reading a
Suzanne Brockmann book - it has a definite style. As
an author she has a unique and singular style that is
both riveting and immediate; her signature is one of
action, drama, romance and suspense. Ms.
Brockmann knows how to deliver the suspense but
she also knows how to deliver the emotional
motivations that drive her characters, and once again
she gives us a book that weaves together several
different stories with exciting and unexpected twists
and turns.I waited a long time for Breaking the Rules,
the 16th addition to her popular Troubleshooter
series, and it was well worth the wait." Read more...
