Review - All Through the Night

Title: All Through the Night
Author: Suzanne Brockmann
Publishing Date: 2007
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Rating: B
Sensuality: Kisses

All Through the Night is book 12 in the Troubleshooter series. Jules and Robin are getting married. Only, the thing is that nothing seems to be going right. Their old Victorian house has bats in the attic and doorknobs that keep falling off the doors, which in turns leads to someone getting locked in a room and a pesky reporter who wants the dirt on their upcoming nuptials. One thing is clear though – that Robin and Jules are completely head over heals in love with each other. Nothing is going to stand in their way of getting married.

All Through the Night is such a treat for fans of Jules Cassidy. Since he first appeared in the series in The Defiant Hero, he has played a large role in each book. His spunky, fun personality has kept readers wishing and hoping that he finally get his own happy-ever-after. Now that Robin has gotten his act together Jules does. Robin has accepted his sexuality. He has also entered rehab and has been successfully staying sober. He is determined to be the man he wants to be for Jules. Their wedding is so sweet and very touching. Brockmann really sold me that these two will make their marriage a success.

There is also a small secondary romance between a reporter Will Schroder and Robin’s assistant Dolphina Patel. This romance was less than spectacular. It is one of those love-at-first-site romances, which I think is a total cop out on Brockmann’s part. The twist, in this case, is that Will is forced to make some very horrid choices and ends up hurting Jules and Robin. Dolphina with good reason wants nothing to do with him. This book was really too short to properly develop their relationship.

I think Tracy just read this last week, too! I've really got to get my butt in gear and read this series. It's very popular with friend's whose reading tastes I trust!

Jill D. said...

Yes Christine!! Doesn't seem like you will never be able to catch up with all the books you want to read? That could be a good thing though, right? Then you will never run out of books!

I really liked this one (well, i loved the whole series). Jules finally gets his happy ending. I am glad that you liked it.

Kris - I love this series! It's fabulous. I am almost caught up. I just need to read her latest release Into the Fire

Kris said...

That one was very good. I had a hard time putting it down. Hope you enjoy :)

Rowena said...

I love this series and I just keep on loving them too. Have you tried her TDD series with the other SEAL team?

I think it would be really cool for both teams to work together, I love both teams!

Jill D. said...

Rowena, I am going to read Into the Fire first and then I will start in on her other series. I have read the book Prince Joe. I am not sure if that is part of the TDD series.

Okay, I just went to her website but there wasn't any information on it yet. It did say possible Feb 09 release date! Woohoo! That's not to far away!
