Hot Pursuit. New York: Ballantine, ISBN — Guarding lives is her game, and no one plays it better. The assignment was supposed to be an easy one: teach self-defense techniques to a newly elected assemblywoman and her chief of staff after a political controversy generates a blizzard of hate mail — including death threats — from hotheads and cranks. But as soon as she mobilized her squad of moonlighting Navy SEALs in New York City, Alyssa begins butting heads with the hard-case cop who thinks that the Troubleshooters are chasing shadows.

Dan and Jenn were the romantic equation of this romantic suspense, and they were firey hot together! Who knew that SB could get down and dirty like she did with them? The suspense part of the story reminded me of something that Karen Rose who does diabolical killers so well would write. Kudos to the talented SB for weaving such an interesting suspense plot about a gruesomely twisted homophobic serial killer nicknamed "The Dentist" who likes to extract the teeth from his victims.
What looks like an easy assignment guarding Maria and her friend and assistant Jenn, turns into something much more serious when dead bodies start turning up.
Or is there another possibility? Things get mighty complicated, as Alyssa, Sam and Jules try to put their heads together and come up with a list of possible suspects.
SB tosses out a couple of good possibilities, but I had him pegged early on. I never paid much attention to Gillman before--he always seemed to be one of those characters who was in a perpetual bad mood, kind of humourless, and always fighting with fellow SEAL Izzy Zanella. I loved reading all that, and I loved the chemistry he had with Jenn. Although I thought he was a bit too calculating in his seduction technique, I somehow knew that Jenn would be able to handle herself with him, and maybe teach him a thing or two.
I loved Jenn. She was not your typical romance heroine. Size 14, attractive but not pretty, tall, bad dresser, smart, hard working but not as successful, rich, or beautiful as her friend Maria I was rooting for her all the way, and wanted her to get the hunky guy!
Now the question is, is there a future for Dan and Jenn? Jeez, I hope so! Brockmann also makes her usual case for gay rights which fans have come to expect , but nothing too heavy handed here.
I loved this book, and thought it had the perfect blend of romance and suspense, with some very witty dialogue. I doubt that fans will be disappointed.
