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 own 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 to Phoebe Kruger, Ian’s bespectacled, beautiful, and unexpectedly brash new attorney. Determined to see the abducted children set free, she 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 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.

Do Or Die is the first book of Suzanne Brockmann’s new Reluctant Heroes series. It is a spinoff off of her Troubleshooters series but so much better than those stories!

Ex-Navy SEAL Ian Dunn turned his talents to stealing and con jobs…or did he? In reality, the former SEAL is still fighting for good, which makes him the perfect choice when the government must break into a highly guarded embassy and rescue kidnapped children.

Phoebe Kruger is Ian’s new lawyer and is nothing like Ian expects. She is smart, witty, and brash while looking like a librarian. Phoebe is determined to help set the abducted children free and ends up in all sorts of tight spots that Ian must help her out of.

There are so many bad guys and so much going on in this book, that at first, I had trouble following it, but this book got way better about one-third into it. By then all of the sub-plots started falling into place and the overall story made sense and became very exciting. This story is full of great action, tons of rescues, and steamy romance!

Ian and Phoebe have great chemistry together! Once they got together, I couldn’t put this book down. There are a lot of flawed secondary characters that I’m sure we will get to know in future books. Ms. Brockmann has started another terrific series!
