Take No Prisoners (Black Ops Inc. #2)
A Dangerous Attraction...
Abbie Hughes no longer trusts men, but despite her cool indifference, her long legs and showgirl face still draw plenty of attention. Between wor...more
I'm loving this series! TAKE NO PRISONERS is another WOW read from Cindy Gerard’s fantastic Black-Ops BOI’s. This cleverly written story starts off with a bang and just keeps on going. Filled with action and suspense a-plenty Gerard whisks the reader to exotic locations filled with car chases, shootouts and several wicked bad guys all trying to ou ...more
This is about Sam who is a real likable character. For me he just felt real. His emotions with the loss that he felt and the confusion and love that he felt for Abbie.I love how he was instantly feeling guilty and then trying to push that aside. He was so wonderfully protective not only of Abb ...more
When it takes me less than 24 hour to read a full length novel with my kids at home for the duration - it shows how much i LOVE a book.
I made the mistake of starting this an hour before I wanted to go to bed. "Just a few chapters of the fabulous Cindy Gerard & I'll sleep peacefully" I told myself. EEEHHHhhhh WRONG.
One hour turned into three and I found it physically painful to put this book down before finishing it.
Sam was yet another sex on a stick, Black Ops, die to sleep with, ...more
I'm giving this one 3.5 stars because thought I liked it, there were two things that knocked down my enjoyment level. They weren't major things, but enough to bug me a little.
Probably best to read this series in order, though this one is a little less dependent on previous books than some of the others.
Sam Lang loved his life as an operative for Black Ops, Inc...then a man Sam was trying to bring down turned the tables and murdered Sam's sister and brother-in-l ...more
The plot was simple to follow - Sam wants Nader who has Cory, Abbie wants Cory who had the diamond necklace and the necklace is the tool they u ...more
Terrorist Fredrick Nader is a bad, bad man. To get back at BOI Sam Lang for pursuing him, Nader murders Sam's sister and brother-in-law. Devastated, Sam quits the elite private team to join his father and niece back on the ranch. But none of them can move on with life knowing the ...more
Another great story with no downtime.
From the beginning of the series I knew that I'd love Sam's book. Actually, Sam and Doc. I love strong and quiet guys and Sam didn't disappoint. And for those of you who love Black Ops guys AND cow-boys, Sam is definitely your guy. That's right, he is both *le sigh*.
I really love how the BOI interact with each others but Sam and Johnny Duane Reed have an even more special relationship. In addition to being stuck at the hip, Sam seems abl ...more
Sam is part of a U.S. Black Ops group after bad guy Nader in Honduras. Nader arranges for a car bomb to kill Sam’s sister back in the States. Sam retires from the group in grief and now works with his dad on a horse ranch.
Abbie is a blackjack dealer in Las Vegas and a part-time college student. Her younger brother Cory has been buying Honduran knick-knacks and shipping them to Abbie to store for h ...more
First of all, looks like this book was too short. After each chapter were blank pages that were included in the page numbering. Secondly, there were some jarring scene transitions that could have been a result of over editing. Thirdly, there was very little romance or lovin' between the h/h. Lastly, the ending seemed thrown together and looked like filler CRAP to get a few more pages into the book. Ugh!
This was not as polished as I'm used t ...more
It goes along the storyline of Girls likes Boy, Boy likes Girl.. Boy gets the Girl..
but with a whole lot of Guns, Bombs, Alpha Males, Secret Agency stuff and the dealings of the worlds underground crime system...
Every loves an Alpha Male, but an Army Alpha Male is just HOT!
I am LOVING this series! I just wish it was a little longer as it is a pretty quick read and the Steamy scenes were a bit juicer.. but as i said I loved it.
Sam and Abbie are great!
I can't wait to read ...more
I enjoyed reading this book as much as the first. If you like a little romance mixed in with a hot adventure, I recommend this book.
It was written so realistic and vivid it felt like watching a movie. I could just picture it all and see the bullets flying.
Cindy Gerard's extensive knowledge and/or research of South America, weapons and covert operations make her books rich in background and a true joy to read.
Looking forward to reading the next in this series.
Sam Lang left Black Ops, Inc. when the unthinkable happened. Sam was getting too close to Fredrick Nader and his operation. He was determined to stop the cold, maniacal SOB. But Nader got to him first. Planting a bomb in Sam’s sister’s car, blowing up her and her husband, leaving their daughter behind, was Nader’s warning to Sam: Cease and desist, or more will follow.
Sam is now running his father’s ranch outside Las Vegas, taking ...more
I never got a strong sense of Sam and Abbie, the leads in this one. There just wasn't enough development of their characters, and I have no doubt I'll struggle to remember much about them in next couple of days. It seems that the author was more focused on the acti ...more
Abbie Hughes, a tall (5'8") brunette, works as a blackjack dealer and is working her way through college. With her schedule, Abbie doesn't have time for a love life, and all the drama it would likely entail. To add to her stack of responsibilities Abbie's entrepreneur brother, Cory, goes missing.
In comes Sam Lang former BOI. After the death of a close family member, a death that Sam knows w ...more
'Take no Prisoners' was a good, solid romantic suspense, with good, solid, and dependable characters.
Gerard definitely delivers a quick, but top-notch story with loads of action and a sweet romance. This time the man-of-few-words was Sam Lang, a former BOI member who gave up his tough-guy job on the heels of his sister's murder. Unable to live without vengeance any longer, he steps it up to get the man responsible, and this leads to his crossing paths with the outwardly innocent Abbie. ...more
In the beginning Sam really upset me, he was definitely on my sh*t list! But after some time he managed to redeem himself and I was once again swooning!! The murder of his sister drives him causes him to quit the BOI's and return to his family farm. However, circumstances present an opportunity to get the man who murde ...more
Ok, NOW we're talking! After having read book one "Show No Mercy", I was on the fence about this series. I liked it enough. And I was drawn to the BOI team. But, I wasn't head-over-heels w/ it. Slate wiped clean...
I loved "Take No Prisoners". For those of you who are Kristen Ashley fans, Cindy Gerard's Sam Lang is the good-guy-alpha-male personified ala Hank Nightengale. When the team was introduced in Black Ops #1, I thought I'd love the more obvious heartbreakers like Johnny Duane Reed or Luke ...more
The heroine is very likable, very girl next door, the perfect best friend, smart but not a smartass (like Jenna in the previous book could sometimes be). The accumulated misunderstandings between Abbie and Sam made for a crude awakening moment, the morning after (or more exactly later in the night), that was both crude and defining. I believe this one was of the best moments in the book, with her ability to upfront the BOIs mission and to direct it in a way that was compatibl ...more
Abbie Hughes no longer trusts men, but despite her cool indifference, her long legs and showgirl face still draw plenty of attention. Between working as a blackjack dealer, going to school, and keeping an eye on her younger brother, Cory, there's no time for romantic adventures -- 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 hi ...more
Encore une fois complètement embobinée par le rythme et la valse des personnages de la série, je n'ai absolument pas pu lâcher ce tome 2 avant la fin.
Sam est craquant, fin et pas si blanc que ça finalement, tandis qu'Abbie, étonnamment, prend assez de poil de la bête au fil de l'histoire pour faire un pendant intéressant. Leur relation passe par des hauts et des bas, entachée de culpabilité et d'un amour qui, bien évidemment, ne sait pas s'exprimer (sinon, ...more
