My Review:

Breaking Point is the ninth installment in the Troubleshooters series. It starts out when Max Bhagat lets the love of his life Gina, to go to Africa, and out of his life, despite his strong feelings for her. But when he hears that she has been killed in Harmburg Germany, he goes to Germany along with Jules Cassidy to identify the body, however when he arrives he finds out that the body isn’t Gina, its someone else. Through the investigation, a man who is hunted by mostly every government in the world, Grady Morant, AKA “Jones” comes to him for help in finding those that have kidnapped Gina and his wife Molly Anderson. So despite his brain telling him he can’t afford to trust Grady, in his heart he knows its the only way to find Gina, the one who has mattered to him more than anything or anyone else ever has before. So they head to one of the most dangerous countries known, hot zone, to rescue the two women that matter to these men, and who will rescue them at any cost to themselves and their future.

Breaking Point just like her other books, is filled with adventure and suspense. There are two story lines to Breaking Point however one is in the past and one is in the present. The past story line covers more of Gina and Max’s intimate relationship and leads to why they are separated now. Then it takes us to Gina and Molly’s time in Kenya, where they are reunited with Jones AKA Grady Morant, and which leads to the present day, to the kidnapping of these two women, in search of Grady Morant, from a drug lord who has been after him for many years, where his past comes to haunt him and Max as well. But with Jules Cassidy at their side, they go to one of the most dangerous hot spots in the world, to rescue the two innocent bystanders, but will they make it out of the “Hot Spot” alive and together and with a future to go back to? I was thoroughly satisfied with Breaking Point. This is part of the spectacular Troubleshooters series and a intense world that Suzanne Brockmann has created for her readers to delight in. There aren’t really any problems with this one, although it got kinda annoying at times with the different time plots, which would switch at intense moments, and I had the extreme urge to skip through, but since I was listening to this audio style, I decided I needed to restrain myself, and I was grateful that I did, because it helped me to know the background of Gina and Max especially whom I have been rooting for since Over The Edge came into the picture and we see the start of their relationship has been a bit rocky, but its genuine and real. We also get to see Jones and Molly whom we have seen in Out Of Control, but have been seperated until Breaking Point and how they find it safe enough to get back together and married even, so this was a sensational and intense packed read that I found myself having a trying time to put my Ipod down because I became so involved with the story, plus a bonus is a great narrator who I found is common throughout the series of Audio of this series, and portrays the action scenes and the tender emotions portrayed throughout these astrounding romances that will leave you at the edge!!
