TAKING FIRE by Cindy Gerard


Email this review


Bobby Taggart and Talia Levine have a complicated past, but when they’re thrown together in a bombing in Oman, the stakes get high and very personal.

Six years ago, Taggart was a military contractor who’d been unfairly discharged from his special forces unit. Meeting journalist Talia in Kabul was a welcome distraction, but he never expected to fall for her, so when he did and she betrayed him, it was a devastating blow he never completely recovered from. Now, when the two run into each other at an embassy in Oman just in time to experience a deadly bomb attack, Talia saves Taggart from the aftermath, then convinces him to help her when she discovers her son is in peril. As the two attempt to track the boy, Taggart brings in his covert team for help and tries to ignore the still-obvious attraction he and Talia share. He’s never forgiven her for her deception, but he’s surprised by his desire to help and protect her, especially when he realizes she has even more secrets and that her son is in the hands of coldblooded enemies who are thirsty for revenge—and want Talia dead. Gerard is the queen of special-ops romance, and this fourth title in her One-Eyed Jacks series perfectly combines her special brand of relentless threat, nonstop action, sizzling attraction, and intensely conflicted romance with dollops of humor, brothers-in-arms camaraderie, and fun check-ins with the other One-Eyed Jacks and Black Ops series couples.

Supersexy romantic suspense fueled by a high-octane plot, breathtaking tension, and blazing passion.
