Tension sizzles in this new book in the One-Eyed Jacks series byNew York Times bestseller Cindy Gerard: a sexy, pulse-pounding story featuring special ops agent Jamie Cooper and a female cyber analyst as they fight for justice and fall in love.

No commitments, no promises, no looking back. Those are her rules. They used to be his rules, too. Counterterrorism operative and shameless playboy Jamie Cooper has gone head-to-head with some formidable opponents, but none so quick-witted, free-spirited, and smokin’ hot as security analyst Rhonda Burns. She lives up to her name, all fiery passion and zero inhibitions.

In the wake of a sniper attack that leaves a close friend clinging to life, the duo is pegged to undertake the One-Eyed Jacks’ latest security mission alone—an assignment that leads them to a top-secret desert military facility. Almost immediately, the sexual tension that has been brewing for months erupts, blindsiding Rhonda and Jamie with the intensity of their feelings. They try to play it cool, but when an elite terrorist team makes the future uncertain, they ask themselves: is it now or never?

FTC : I bought it.

Why I read it : I love Gerard

Context : This book is the third in the series for the One Eyed Jacks. Yes, you should read the others but I also think you should read the Black Ops series as those characters also appear.

My Overwhelming Feelings when reading this : Meh. It was so Meh. The romance had no conflict and the suspense just didn’t capture my imagination. The characters were a little bland too.

Good bits? : The scene at the beginning was good. Lots of chaos and action… I enjoyed it!

Will I read more books from this author? : One book does not destroy my confidence in this author. Every other book has been amazing and this just didn’t work for me.

one-star

  1. Interesting review. I’ve eyed this series for a bit but haven’t picked it up yet. Sounds like I should start with the Black Ops series before this one. Perhaps I’ll add book 1 to my TBR list. Thanks for sharing!

    • The Black Ops series was my first foray into Romantic Suspense and I loved it. Good heroines and interesting stories… I do recommend them!
