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
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
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
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
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
To much intel and not enough romance, this one was a tough one to get into. ...more
Adler is a bad guy with an operation in the jungle of Argentina. Gabe works for a covert private security team. He is in love with Angelina who has been kidnapped by Adler. Jenna is a journalist doing a story about Adler. Their paths first cross while fighting Adler and destroying his compound. Unfortunately Angelina died during torture by
Adler. Nine months later, Jenna returns to Argentina to do a story on Maxim, a wealthy businessman. Gabe ...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 had read CG's Bodyguard series and everyone encouraged me to go on and read this one and I don't know why it has taken me so long to pick them up. Once I started reading this book I couldn't put it down and stayed up until the wee hours of the morning to finish - it was well worth forgoing my beauty sleep
We first met Gabe in the last of the Bodyguards series Into the Darkand I was looking forward to reading more about him and I wasn't disappointed. We also met Jenna in the same pre ...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
Her writing is flawless. Short, sharp, dramatic sentences that are hard hitting and continuously entertaining. And funny, not side splitting, wet your pants funny but the sarcastic one liners make me giggle internally. Her heroines are strong willed and inspirations. And the men? Well the men are even better. Always sexy. Always 100% alpha male. ALWAYS additions to my spank bank. They never, ever disappoint.
I enjoyed all the action...and all the hot alpha men
I just wished the heroine would have made the hero grovel some more. Damn he was a douche on more than one occasion.
Hopefully the heroines in the next books have a little bit more pride...begging is not really my thing...which is kind of what the heroine in this book did.
I could also do with a little less technical terms...made it confusing at times
3 stars and I will be loo ...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'm gonna say that you really probably should read the previous series before read this one. The previous book especially relates to this one. So I'd really recommend reading t ...more
Thank you to Buggy for recommending Show No Mercy, the first book in the Black Ops series. I definitely plan to read the next six novels based on this excellent beginning.
After leaving the military, Gabe Jones and his "brothers" become part of Nathan Black's private security-mercenary-kickass firm "Black's Operations, Inc" (a cute twist on Black Ops. They're also known as Black's Obnoxious Idiots). Gabe is reeling from losing his buddy Bryan in war ...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
This smokin' hot read just moved on up to one of my all time re-readable novels. I loved Gabe (be still my beating heart) & Jenna (amazing spitfire) they are perfectly flawed and perfect for each other!
One thing I loved about Gabe (and it's certainly not the most important) Is when he came to the realization that he loved Jenna and he didn't think, OMG what? I love Jenna! He already knew it ...more
This book was a basic romantic suspense, written in the cookie cutter style of the new millennium romantic suspense. That is: very hot military men who are part of a secret force and very hot women who get stuck in a situation that the very hot military men have to rescue them from. Lots of tight t-shirts over ripped abs. It was entertaining and fairly well written so I can safely say its a 3 star book for me. However, it didn't have the things that would have pushed it up to fou ...more
The problem with Show No Mercy is that the conflict was set up in a previous book (belonging to another series) so there was a lot of rehashing. And when I said a lot, I mean A LOT. The main characters met in the previous book, the conflict was started in the previous book so this felt like a (not very well done) part 2. It's as if the author felt she crafted such a great conflict that she felt like she needed to get two books out of it!
That anybody followed that villain was complet ...more
I want to start off by saying that I did enjoy this book. The suspense is great, the romance is good, although I do like a little more in my books, and the characters are easy to connect to.
The only problem I had was that even though this is the first book in the Black Ops series, it's really not....you have to read the last book in the Bodyguard series Into the Dark, to be able to follow whats going on. I was so confused. I had no clue how Jenna and Gabe met. I kept going back to 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.”
