Challenge: 100+, Whisper Stories

Sometime in the not too distant past, the once torrid romance between Eden Gillman and her Navy SEAL husband Izzy Zanella took a drastic cooling turn. Both seem permanently wedded to mutual disdain, but then something happens that changes the chemistry: Eden discovers that her younger brother Ben is the victim of abuse by his stepfather. To rescue him from the tyrant's custody, she knows that she must reconstruct her tattered relationship with the man that she had most cherished. What she doesn't yet realize is the full saving strength of that lovers' reunion.

Once again Izzy and Eden’s relationship starts off with Eden needing Izzy’s help. This time it’s in regard to her brother, Ben. These two are in love with each other, but neither one seems to trust the other when it comes to matters of the heart. Izzy just thinks Eden’s a liar and Eden thinks Izzy just wants sex.

Dan, Eden’s older, perfect brother also makes an appearance. He too is trying to help protect Ben. His love interest, Jennilyn, is a bit skeptical about Danny’s love for her. She doesn’t want Danny to be with her just because he needs her to gain custody of Ben, but because he loves her and can’t be without her.

As these four race to save Ben from his evil stepfather, they also encounter Neisha, a teenager who’s escaped from her sex slave captors.

Breaking the Rules is action packed just like all the Troubleshooter novels. Since it’s been a while since I read the last installment, Hot Pursuit, I couldn’t really remember Jennilyn’s character. I remember that name, but I couldn’t recall how she came into the picture.

I’ve always been a fan of Izzy and Eden and this one was no exception. It’s obvious to everyone but them how much the other cares about them.

I would have however loved to see my favorite supercouple, Sam and Alyssa. My only complaint with this book is that I read it’s going to be last of the Troubleshooters. Hopefully Brockmann is just taking a short hiatus and coming back with more great action very soon.
