Review Tour + #Giveaway: Maximum Trouble by L.M. Pampuro @GoddessFish

Maximum Trouble
by L.M. Pampuro
GENRE:  Suspense


Her relationship with Zack Brady is in undefined territory. The trial of Gert Fountain fades in her rearview mirror.  Needing a break, Maxi Malone tags along with her parents for a well-deserved break on the island of Aruba.
An unmarked war ship sits just off the coast of this tropical paradise. Both tourists and natives are plunged into the deep web of a psychopath’s revenge.

With hostile encounters taking place in U.S. waters, Zack Brady is recruited back into the United States military. As the situation in Aruba becomes more personal, he is dispatched to the island with the sole purpose of saving Maxi and her family.

The only question now is can he get there in time?


“Through the grass Moon lead the two to a clay hut surrounded by palm trees. The ocean waves slapped in the distance. A small woman in cut off shorts and a dancing bear t-shirt poked at the ambers of a glowing fire. Her blonde dreadlocks tied back with a purple ribbon. Her focus did not waver as Moon sat at her side.

“What did you find this time, my moony?”

“The bad men were trying to find them,” he pointed in the direction of Maxi and Ric. His mother didn’t move. “They needed our help.” The older woman nodded. “You said no more but mama…”

She glanced in Maxi’s direction, her eyes reflecting the fire that started to grow. “Moony, we must be careful. Your father---

“Is an ass—

“Moony. We must have some respect.”

“But if father hadn’t met the—

“Shush!” Moon’s mother rose from behind the fire. She walked over and extended her slim hand. Maxi jumped. Her hand tingled with the touch. “I am Harmony, Moon’s mother.”

My Review:

Maxi Malone is on vacation with her mother, father and son on the island of Aruba. Maxi is not sure where her and Zach relationship is headed and needs a break from him to figure things out on her own.

Maxi is spending time on the beach with her mother, father and son when they see an unidentified war ship just off the coast. They began to hear rumors about who the ship belongs to and why it is there.

They were told that the United States government was sending a ship to evacuate Americans. Maxi didn’t feel right about the ship and didn’t want to board it so she contacted her brother Pete to ask him what was going and to let him know about the ship. They figured if anyone would know anything about the ship Pete would.

Maxi and her family are waiting in line to board the ship when Maxi receives a call from Pete telling her not to board the ship but instead head inland and wait for further instructions. Someone would meet them there and escort them off the island. Maxi and her family have to fight their way across the island to await rescue and are separated.   

When I read the summary and finding out that the story was to take place on the island of Aruba and it involved the military and an unidentified war ship and a family I just had to know how it would all tie together and how the family would be saved and what ordeals they would have to experience before they were rescued.

Maximum Trouble started off with a bang and the action and excitement kept pouring in page after page. The suspense had me on the edge of my seat just waiting for more. There was non-stop action from beginning to end. I could just see the whole thing playing out in my head like a movie. I can’t wait to read more about Maxi and her adventures.

I have not had the opportunity to read Maximum Mayhem but I don’t feel as if I missed anything of utmost importance although I do wish I had read it then I would have known more about Maxi and Zack’s relationship and who they are. With saying this I do feel as if Maximum Trouble can be read as a stand-alone. 

I would recommend Maximum Trouble to all fans of suspense with a whole lot of action.
