Try Suzanne Brockmann's SeAL Team 10 series. They are not full blown long novels but are still a great read and totally addictive.

I'VE READ ALL OF BROCKMANN'S BOOKS AND WAS ANXIOUS FOR THIS NEW ONE. I'M 2/3 DONE AND FEELING CONFUSED. NOT SURE I LIKE IT AND I KNOW ITS NOT HOLDING MY ATTENTION AS THE OTHERS HAVE. THE GAY SCENES LEAVE ME COLD. I CAN ONLY FEEL COMPASSION FOR A MOTHER WHO LOVES A CHILD WHO IS GAY AND I UNDERSTAND WHAT SHE IS TRYING TO DO BUT NOT SO SURE I WANT TO READ ABOUT IT. I'LL ACCEPT THE LIFE STYLE BUT WOULD RATHER STAY IN THE DARK OF GAY AFFAIRS IN HER FUTURE BOOKS IF I'M TO CONTINUE BUYING THEM.

This was the first book of Ms.Brockmann's I have read and I was hooked I have ordered all her older books so I could read them in order. I have no problem at all with Jules infact his secondary store only add to a great read. I'm looking forward to him getting his own book just like all the others have. If a person is really put off by this story they need not read them but I think Jules is a very nice person and his story should be fantastic. Love is love no matter who.

I've been a big fan of Ms. Brockmann and miss the action that she wrote in her earlier books. I know there are women reading her books that have loved ones in Iraq and other areas and she may be sensitive to their feelings but I would still like to see a little more action in her next books. I'm an Army brat and love the military and a man in uniform. Maybe she could write about a little older woman (early to mid 30's). I also liked the scene with Sam and Alyssa that involved handcuffs, inebriation and chocolate syrup! I work in a small independent book store and I hear comments from her fans and they do like the SEALS a lot better than the CIA operatives. AI also don't care for the women who are out to prove they can do anything a man can do and are always endangering themselves and everyone around them. Give them some brains please. Thanks for letting me write this note.

I don't think very many people read the same book I did when they read Suzanne Brockmann's Hot Target.
Hot Target WAS Cosmo and Jane's book. Brockmann spent a good part of the story developing these two very complex characters. She used her considerable writing talent to show the reader how that first impression, that knee-jerk reaction to how a person LOOKS can be so very deceiving. I was far from disappointed in that portion of the book.
I was fascinated by her use of a movie within a book in telling a very sad story regarding WWII (one of Brockmann's passions). In many ways this plot style brought back memories of another classic Brockmann Heartthrob and actually re-introduced several characters from that early stand-alone.
Yes -- there was a SUB-PLOT regarding secondary character FBI Agent Jules Cassidy, who just happens to be gay --- but NO MORE space was given to this story line than any other secondary storyline in any other of the Troubleshooters series. (Here I stumble as OTHER secondary plots were also great talking points RE: Sam and Alyssa, Molly and Jones, Tom and Kelly, etc)
I think that at this point in time people are trying to be super, extra politically correct and feel that they SHOULD make this a BIG deal.
It's not. The scenes between Jules/Robin/Adam are not any more heartwrenching than the scenes between Cosmo and Jane or any other character.
And for those who are hesitant to read this excellent book because they now think it's a 'gay romance' --- you can easily glide over the FEW scenes that MAY bring a little, well placed discomfort. It will not ruin the story for you.
I was happy with this book and pleased to see Suzanne Brockmann returning to her more complex writing style. I was left feeling less than pleased after FlashPoint.

I was very disappointed in Hit Target. I read romances for the man/woman relationship and I didn't enjoy the gay men relationship aspect of this book at all. And I felt cheated with Cosmo's and Jane's story cause it was not very well developed and Cosmo seemed to be in the book so he could tell Jane in regard to her brother, "Gay, bi or straight, I love you. Give me a break! I want enjoyable entertainment, not this stuff.

This is my first book by Suzanne and I loved it and I hope that we will be seeing more of Jules I think he would make a great book with or without Robin I'am not sure if he deserves Jules he is a bit of a baby. I know he had a rotten childhood but so do a lot of people and they don't go out of their way to make other people feel terrible. I really loved Jules and would love to see him happy.

I loved this book! Suzanne never disappoints. It was more about Jules then Cosmo, but I felt the story line was strong and handled very well. I think we will see more of Robin and Jules!
