I’m on vacation this week so I don’t have a review for you but I did want to share what I’m reading for the TBR Challenge.

I chose Into the Night by Suzanne Brockmann for my “scary” read this month. I actually read the previous book in this series, Out of Control, for last year’s October challenge. Here’s the blurb:

It was supposed to be a “dog and pony show”—an elaborate demonstration of SEAL rescue techniques—to celebrate a presidential visit to a California naval base. Professional, no-nonsense White House staffer Joan DaCosta arrives early to scope out the area. Assigned to be her SEAL liaison is Lt. (jg) Mike Muldoon, a born leader—strong, decisive, tough, and fearless.

Against her better judgment, Joan finds herself drawn to the handsome young officer. Skilled at being “one of the guys” in the mostly male world of politics, she is dismayed when Muldoon breaks through her defenses. While tension mounts between them, fueling their growing attraction, a far more sinister danger is lurking, as terrorists plot a daring attack against the president. To protect their commander in chief, Joan and Muldoon must not only risk their hearts—but their very lives. . . .

I really like the Troubleshooters series, at least up to a certain point. There are only a couple of series (J.D. Robb’s In Death series and J.R. Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood come to mind) that I can stick with through all the books. Most of the time long series start grating on me; I lose track of all the characters and often times the story becomes repetitive. We’ll see how far I get with this series. I’ve jumped around a lot, reading books 3 and 6 first, before going back and reading the first and second one. I read the fourth one last year, and now I’m reading the 5th. They mostly stand alone, although it is helpful to dive into a story knowing a little about the characters first.

I don’t know if I will continue with the series after this book. It’s obviously not that enthralling to me since I’m just now getting around to reading the fifth book, a year after reading the fourth. Romantic suspense is not my favorite subgenre (unless it’s Nora Roberts) mostly because I don’t like scaring myself. Some of the Troubleshooters’ books hit a little close to home because they’re about terrorism and problems in the Middle East, so more than likely, this will be it for me with this series. Unless of course, you outrageously disagree with me and give me excellent reasons to keep reading!
