Book review Take No Prisoners 2nd book in the Black Ops series by author Cindy Gerard

Take No Prisoners is the 2nd book in the Black Ops series by author Cindy Gerard. Cindy is a new author to me and this is the 2nd book of hers I've read. Wow the jury is always out when you read the first book in a series right? Top that off with the author being someone you really don't know anything about. If you like the first one your still a little wary about the 2nd one. Well in this instance the 2nd one is just as good as the first. Below is a little bit from the back of the book.

A dangerous attraction . . .

Abbie Hughes no longer trusts men, but despite her cool indifference, her long legs and showgirl face still draw plenty of advances. Between working as a Vegas blackjack dealer, going to school, and keeping an eye on her younger brother, Cory, there’s no time for romance—until the night a sexy, mysterious stranger places a wager at her table.

Spurred by revenge . . .

Sam Lang left Black Ops, Inc. when tragedy struck his family. Although he’s determined to retire his M-16 rifle and K-bar knife to lead a quiet life on his ranch, a vengeful quest will send him on a dangerous manhunt for the ruthless international crime lord who murdered his sister.

. . . Reveals a savage threat they can’t ignore.

Though Sam suspects Abbie is in on a lucrative gem-smuggling deal her brother made with the enemy, their attraction is undeniable. Now Cory is missing, and together they search the wild backcountry of Honduras to find him. With evil on their trail and bearing down, they must trust each other completely or face certain death alone. . . .

There are 5 book in this series and i do intend to read them all. Sam Lang is a man on a mission. He's been trying to get his hands on Frederick Nader. A big time criminal whose a flat out killer. Nader keeps slipping thru his fingers, then one day Sam's life falls apart when his sister and brother is law are killed in a car bomb and Nader is responsible. Back off, the message is clear and sent by Nader. Sam quits the BOI's and goes to his parents ranch. Abbie is a beautiful blackjack dealer with a brother who has a penchant for trouble. Her brother Cory finds himself unwittingly pulled into Frederick Nader's world whether he wants to be or not. Then he goes missing. Sam thinks Abbie is in on whatever Cory's been up to. He inserts himself in her life getting her to trust him and when she finally does and asks him to her home he drops the bomb on her so to speak. Things aren't always what they seem though. Abbie doesn't know anything, but one things for sure Sam is about to find out how tough Abbie Hughes really is. This story is full of awesome action scenes with some romance thrown in and a few laughs and heartwarming moments. What i like about this series so far is i feel the story is not predictable. Your pretty sure the guy will get the girl in the end but how will it get to that ending? Ah now that's the thing isn't it? I like how the black ops team is not all in every book but some are on the peripheral and it makes you wonder whose story is next. There are peaks into possible future stories. To read a excerpt of this book and other Cindy Gerard book click here for a sneak peak. I give Take No Prisoners by author Cindy Gerard 4 and 1/2 Modokker Book Pick stars.
