Summary:

From unrelenting action to intense emotion, from high-stakes drama to breakneck pacing, New York Times bestselling author Suzanne Brockmann is a novelist who does it all. Flashpoint is an exciting thriller about men and women operating where agents of the US government cannot, where America’s most ruthless enemies thrive—and where every step you take just might be your last.

Jimmy Nash has already lived two lives—and he can’t talk about either of them. Formerly an operative of a top secret government agency, he has found a new job with a shadowy company called Troubleshooters Inc. Created by a former Navy SEAL, Troubleshooters Inc. helps anyone in desperate need—which provides a perfect cover for its other, more perilous objective: covert special operations.

Now Nash and a quickly assembled team of expert operators have come to the earthquake-ravaged country of Kazbekistan in the guise of relief workers. There amid the dust and death, in a land of bloodred sunsets and ancient blood feuds, they must track down a missing laptop computer that may hold secrets vital to national security.

To get it done, Nash does what he does best: break every rule in the book and manipulate those who can help him get what he needs. But this time Nash may have met his match in Tess Bailey, a Troubleshooters operative with all the right instincts—and zero field experience. The chemistry between them is immediate—and potentially explosive. Now these two professionals must play out their dangerous games in the world’s most dangerous place, cut off from their own government, cutting deals with people they can’t trust, and guarding forbidden passions that threaten to compromise their crucial mission.

A full-throttle adventure teamed with heated emotion, Flashpoint proves that Suzanne Brockmann can spin suspense unlike any other author working today.

“Veteran romantic-suspense novelist Brockmann serves up a heady mix of tension, romance, and international intrigue…Car bombs, shady American reporters, police interrogations, aftershocks, and hot sex complicate matters, but it’s a hotel ambush and Tess’ kidnapping that sends both men on the rescue effort of their lives. Their brisk success allows the romantic entanglement to resume center stage, where, as far as romance fans are concerned, it belongs.”—Publishers Weekly

    This was a very different book of action and romance than any of the other 60 books I've read via audiobooks. It took a while for the story to take hold and it was well drawn out( 13hrs), but toward the 6-7 Hrs to go mark, already convinced it was a good book, it converted in my eyes to being a REALLY good book. The scene is Kasbekistan and the business was delete or extract the target. - "guns for hire". The male lead character , private hire special ops, was thought to be a jerk to women- rough and very deadly - layer it very believably. His best friend, also private spec ops and former Seal, was straight laced , all business and also very deadly and real. The female lead was a book smart techie who believe it or not, surprised all the spec ops guys. I really liked her. Not too tough but internally tough as nails, not gorgeous, but cute enough to attract plenty of attention!!! This male narrator had a very excited yet rugged voice and really fit the main character's rough demeanor. The female narrator did a great job too. If you don't mind a lot of twists and turns told in a very detailed way, this is for you. I really liked this story
