Hot Pursuit - Suzanne Brockmann This rating is difficult. I gave it 4 stars because I liked everything else that goes on. I liked the conclusion of The Dentist storyline, and I liked the Sam & Alyssa stuff, and of course the Robin & Jules scenes. And Izzy is another favorite of mine. Ash's "Ninganang!" was just adorable.

But…I've disliked Danny Gillman for several books now, and even though he's one of the primary "heroes" of this book, he did NOTHING to change my opinion. He's obnoxious, smug, and thinks he's superior to everyone. He treats his little sister and brother like dirt, and goes around badmouthing his sister Eden to anyone who tries to get close to her. And his hatred of Izzy Zanella is just obnoxious. Izzy has bailed him out of trouble, and done everything he (Izzy) could to help Eden, and Dan still calls him "Izzy F'ing Zanella." Really? Try growing up past the age of 12, Danny.

I finished the book, and I still can't stand him, and think Jen deserves SOOOOO much better than him. And after all this time, I don't have a lot of hope that the next book, Breaking Point, will suddenly redeem him.
