There Really Is No Place Like Vegas

Breaking the Rules (Troubleshooters, #16)Breaking the Rules by Suzanne Brockmann

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Welcome back Ms. Brockmann!

Izzy and Fishboy start a bromance. OK, that's pushing it too far. What they are doing, what everyone in this novel learns, is communicating. Thanks to some timely intervention from Jenn.

There are disturbing things in this novel. If you are triggered by domestic violence and child sex slaves, do not read it. Brockmann explores these topics well. As well she should. If you have those triggers, though, best wait for the next great Brockmann novel.

Tons of relationship building in this one. Of course, we have the love relationships between Jenn and Dan, Izzy and Eden. We have family relationships growing between Dan, Eden, and their younger brother Ben. And, as mentioned earlier, Dan and Izzy. Friendship, family, and romance. Great mix.

And we have hints of coming possible pairings. While Ben is still under 18, a hunky gay Team 16 member is mentioned once in a while. Jenn's employer, Maria, is very much a part of finding solutions in this novel. Can't wait to see what comes next!

The bad guys are thoroughly and unquestionably BAD. Very Bad. The shame is that there really are people like that in this world.

Would I recommend this book to a Las Vegas showgirl? Yes. While the action that takes place may be a bit off, I think she might like that the "normal" side of Vegas is presented.

Would I recommend this book to a survivor of child abuse? No.

Would I recommend this book to a man in a bear suit? Of course not! It's too hot to wear a bear suit in Vegas!
