Show No Mercy (Black Ops Inc. #1)
The sexy heroes of Black Ops, Inc., a covert private security team, sizzle in New York Times bestselling author Cindy Gerard's electrifying new romantic suspense series.
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...more
WOW this one's a keeper. I absolutely loved this book it's got everything you could possibly want in a romantic suspense; uber alpha-male hero, exotic locations, suspense, drama, explosions, gunfights, hot sweaty jungles, passionate love scenes, psychotic villains, movie-worthy action scenes and some of the most touching dialogue I've read. (gotta love those tortu...more
We first met the H/H in a previous book called "Into The Dark". Although this book is technically the start of a new series (Black Ops series), do yourself a favor and make sure you read "Into the Dark" first, you'll understand the characters a whole lot more. I had read "Into the Dark", but it's been about a year, and I've read a lot of books since, so my memories were a lit...more
So I am gonna do this a little differently, keeping it fresh and hot. So this is the first book in the Black Ops series, no its not about black operatives and yes the men are sexy. These guys infiltrate a situation and take out the bad guys and they do it in style. I am talking guns a blazing, knives a stabbing and smack talking. Yes! These guys got balls.
THE RUNDOWN- Its been a few months since Jenna McMillan was rescued from a nasty situation down in Argentina, this w...more
I'm just so used to my heroes being able fly/regenerate their health/drink blood/turn into a wolf/read minds/move at impossible speeds.
I just guess a super commando butch dude with no super powers or abilities couldn't keep up with those kind of expectations. And to be honest, who could?
But something did get at me about Show No Mercy though.
You see, my Babcia (Pronounced: Bub-shia) and dziedek (Pronounced Jad-eck) watch those Danielle Steele movies that c...more
What I liked about this book:
1. The secondary romance. I can't give their names away because it doesn't start until half-way through the book and I don't want to mark this review as spoilery. I REALLY liked the secondary romance - it was believable between two warm, caring people. (I should note at this point that the secondary romance is the only reason this book received three s...more
Thoroughly enjoyed all the secondary characters, definitely looking forward to getting all their stories and i also really enjoyed the side story featuring Nate Black and Juliana Flores, although there was never any completion or clos...more
In the first book of Gerard’s Black Ops, Inc series, we see Gabe “Archangel” Jones and Jenna McMillan again. For those of you who follow Gerard’s Bodyguard series, you’ll be happy to note that this book starts off with a fantastic beginning that hooks you right until the end.
SHOW NO MERCY is a show-stopper, the kind of book where once you start, you won’t be able to stop. I made the mistake of trying to sneak a few pages in before bed and ended up staying up the entire...more
I didn't plan to read this one back to back with the Bodyguard series, I just couldn't help it.
The Black Ops Inc. revolves around Nate Black and his boys. Gabe being one of them. They once were all part of the same US army black ops force (Task Force Mercy) but after a mission went sour and another one of their team got killed, Nate Black (their CO) called it quit and created the Black Ops Inc. (BOI). Little after that, Task Force Mercy was dismantled and the boys joined him...more
I think it needs to be said: This is a spin off from this author's Bodyguard Series AND the plot of this one is directly from the last book in that series. But, in order to understand that last book you need to have read...more

Action, suspense, good guys, bad guys, emotions, fear, bravery, honesty and hot steamy action and throw in a bunch of hot hot alpha men....
I loved Gabe.... I loved Jenna. I don't even know how to express how i feel...
I must think about this I think. I will say this, it is 11:15 pm, my alarm is going to go off at 4:30 am because i have to drive 4.5 hours to New York for an appointment and them back again in the s...more
Even though this book is on my 'hated the heroine' shelf, I didn't exactly hate her. I just couldn't stand the whole "I dunno why he hates me" inner monologue after the 4th go round. Just f*cking ask him already! And, while I understand this is probably how reporters think, the paragraphs upon paragraphs of her just... asking herself questions, wondering about things, mulling stuff over, etc. Holy crap, I was j...more
Ok, ok! Before you start asking me "What the ..." or " Why you DNF this, is the story bad?" or maybe throw me with something, I'll explain..
For me, when I can't finish reading a book, there must be a reason. The reason for this book is, I'm soo.. confused when read it, because the hero and teroine had meet before and they have history too. Then to much thing that I don't know, and I feel like I missed something...
Then I realized that Black Ops is continuing Bodyguard series (same author).. I...more
Provo dei sentimenti contrastanti nei confronti di questo romanzo: la prima parte non mi ha preso molto, ho fatto fatica a capire certe situazioni e avevo l'impressione che fosse il seguito di un altro romanzo...ma mi ripetevo: è il primo della serie... E' il primo della serie "Black Ops, Inc." ma è legato al romanzo "Into The Dark", sesto romanzo della serie "Bodyguard"... ecco spiegato il mistero!
La seconda parte del...more
It's set in Argentina, which is described beautifully and accurately, which of course tickled me (I'm Argentinian), and Gabriel is a hero to die for. I loved how he and Jenna fought all the time-- their mutual irritation with each other was not over right away, as it usually is in those types of books.
Jenna was likable, the pace was fast and exciting. Juliana is by far my favorite character in the series, and the secondary romance is lovely.
(And the followi...more

I find the female protagonist quite annoying. Don't know why. And the translation is a bit... perhaps it lessens my enjoyment in reading this book.
"(Nama karakter) adalah sesuatu" muncul dua kali, dan rasanya tidak pantas saja. Mungkin sebaiknya diganti Gabe/Jenna luar biasa, mengagumkan, menakjubkan, apalah? Lalu penggunakan kata "subtil" yang menurutku merusa...more
An opponent of the original Task Force team had referred to Black's men as Black's Obnoxious Idiots. The name stuck, bonding the...more

"Come here," he whispered.
When she hesitated, he reached for her. "The dog can come, too.”
"No. No, I'm okay. What a about you? Are you hurt?"
"Only if you count the fact that you damned near ripped off my plumbing groping around for my phone."
She made a sound of exasperation. "Now? You pick now to become a comedian?"
"It's all about timing," he whispered back.”
