Hi...my name is Alannah and I'm a reading addict. Specifically, I'm a Suzanne Brockmann's Troubleshooter addict. I can't break free. No matter how hard I try, I just can't stop reading these damned books! And it's becoming quite an issue for me. I've heard of writers who have such a problem of breaking free of the internet that they have their husbands disconnect it before they leave for work (Leslie Kelly/Parrish) and another one I've heard of sends her modem to school in her son's bookbag.
I've considered sending the current book that I'm reading to work with my husband so that I can't read it. But I can't bring myself to do it. I mean, what if I have to go to the bathroom?! LOL
I'm up to the 5th book in the series - only 10 more to go! I'm doomed. Here's the cover and info from her website.
It was supposed to be a "dog and pony show" -- an elaborate demonstration of SEAL rescue techniques -- to celebrate a presidential visit to a California naval base. Professional, no-nonsense White House staffer Joan DaCosta arrives early to scope out the area. Assigned to be her SEAL liaison is Lt. (jg) Mike Muldoon, a born leader -- strong, decisive, tough and fearless.
Against her better judgment, Joan finds herself drawn to the handsome young officer. Skilled at being "one of the guys" in the mostly male world of politics, she is dismayed when Muldoon breaks through her defenses. While tension mounts between them, fueling their growing attraction, a far more sinister danger is lurking, as terrorists plot a daring attack against the president. To protect their commander in chief, Joan and Muldoon must not only risk their hearts -- but their very lives...
HERO: Lt. (jg) Mike Muldoon, U.S. Navy SEAL Team Sixteen
HEROINE: Joan DaCosta, White House Public Relations assistant
LOCATION: San Diego, California
Do you have any suggestions on how to break free of the curse? I hope it's a fantastic weekend for everyone.
Peace and love,
