Hot TargetEm This one Eh Too much Jules not enough of the supposed hero and heroine In Hot Target it just ticked me off that she spent so much time on the Jules Robin Adam triangle that she wasn t able to develop Cosmo and Jane the supposed hero and heroine of the story I liked Cosmo dammit I wanted to have his story Anyway I m gonna give this one only 3 of 4 for being annoying 35 starsHoly crap I actually mostly liked this oneRight away this book had four things in it s favor 1 New to me characters I don t recall Cosmo from the first four books but I liked him Jane was great too Patty came around big time from her starry eyed beginnings of a na ve intern and Robin was a drunken lush with massive issues but I could see his good ualities attempting to shine through Wayne was interesting and I liked how expectations were twisted with him and Patty Hell even Adam had a couple of good moments near the end there He s still a douche though 2 No Sam and Alyssa I hated their toxic attraction to each other and that s all it was The only good thing they could ever say about #each other was how sexy the other looked Their courtship was drunk sex and insults #other was how sexy the other looked Their courtship was drunk sex and insults a strong foundation for the HEA they apparently got in the previous books but it got them out of this book so I wish them well If this were RL I d give them a year if I were feeling generous3 No WWII flashbacks I was right getting rid of those d give them a year if I were feeling generous3 No WWII flashbacks I was right getting rid of those everything else to flow much better There was still WWII stuff since the film being produced was based on the WWII Ghost Army specifically two gay men who found love for a few days during the war And we still have one of the WWII survivors in the story as with the first four books but here he actually contributes to the current story and doesn t detract It was all much better used and seamlessly integrated into the main plot4 More Jules He s no longer just the gay sidekick and finally gets his own time in the spotlight He s smart competent and tough He s a little stupid about love but he learns to value himself by the endOf course this wouldn t be Troubleshooters if stupid still didn t happen There s instalove they new each other barely a week and were already planning nuptials and saying they couldn t live without the other person oh geez drunk sex ridiculous plot holes you can drive a tank through military personnel aren t supposed to moonlight while on leave but here our boy.
