First off this is the first Cindy Gerard book for me. I had several of her books on my TBR pile and decided it was time to try one. Ok that isn't all together true. I actually won a copy of her lasted release "Risk No Secrets" from another blog a while back and that got me looking on her website to see if it was part of a series. It was book 5 of Black Ops series. Hmmmm so now we get back to the TBR pile. I went and checked mine out and Yipeeee i had 3 of the 4 books that come before Whisper No Lies. I have to track down book 4 and i'm all set to read the series. This brings all this back to book 1 Show No Mercy. Did you follow me? That's not as important as this book so let me give you a little bit of something to think about with this....
The sultry heat . . .
Only two things can compel journalist Jenna McMillan back to Buenos Aires after terrorists held her captive there just months before: a rare interview with a shadowy billionaire and the memory of the dark and dangerous man who saved her. . . .
Hides the deadliest threats . . .
Bad guys, bombs, and bullets are Gabriel Jones’s way of life. But he’ll never forget the brash redhead he rescued not so long ago . . . or the passionate kiss they shared before he sent her packing.
And exposes the deepest desires. . . .
Now, forced together by a bombing at the National Congress, Jenna and Gabe confront the urgent longings that simmer between them. But this surprise meeting is no coincidence. A ruthless enemy stalks them with deadly precision. The question is . . . if they make it out alive, will Gabe turn his back on Jenna . . . again?
I thought when i read that that this book would open up with her kidnapping and Gabe rescuing her but it doesn't. It starts 9 months after with Jenna still a bit freaked out from the whole thing and trying to get her nerve back. She's a kick ass reporter whose been in tight dangerous spots many times but the whole kidnapping and things that happened have really shook her up. Then there was the man who saved her, Gabriel Jones. Gabe is all man big and tough as steel. He's closed himself off from everything but Jenna does something to him. This book is a romantic suspense with lots of action. What i really liked about this book as it wasn't predictable. There were at least scenarios that came to mine for the end of this book as to what was going to happen and darn if was the one i didn't expect at all. I'm all fired up now to read book two in this series "Take No Prisoners" To read more about this series of book or any of Cindy Gerard's other book click here . I give Show No Mercy 5 Modokker Book Pick stars. If you like military type romantic suspense give this series a try.
