    When she finally tells him why she is there, he is angry that he was sucker punched by a beautiful woman again. Still, he cannot allow her to go by herself. Soon the duo is struggling to keep alive, unable to differentiate between terrorist attacks and friendly fire as other American operatives propelled by Savannah's grandmother make a rescue attempt.

    OUT OF CONTROL is an exciting romantic suspense novel that first builds up the cast so that the readers know whose whom before going into an incredible warp speed. The flashbacks through Rose's autobiography add depth, but also jars the reader from the prime plot. Still, the story line is fast-paced, but it is the details that make this an exhilarating tale such as the audience trekking along with the stars in the jungle. Though a wild spin, Suzanne Brockmann never allows her novel to spin OUT OF CONTROL so that sub-genre fans have an exuberant experience.
