Preview — Kiss and Tell by Cherry Adair
Kiss and Tell (T-FLAC #2)
Jake was the typical alpha hero who had been "burned by love" and betrayed by friends, so he had serious trusting issues. Hiding in his mountain lair while trying to understand who betrayed him, ...more
I’d say that those initial 150 pages just have the h/h going around in circles and as a reader you're wondering when something "good" is going to happen. It does set the stage but I thought it could have been done better.
The heroine, Marnie, is sooooooo annoying. The author does such a great job at making her sound like a ditzy ch ...more
Kiss and Tell is actually the second book in her T-FLAC series, but I started with it because the first book had far fewer stars and was actually written a long time before this second installment. I definitely didn't feel like I was missing anything by skipping the first so I guess I made the right decision.
This story is based on one ...more
Loved the dog!
I see that book #3, "Hide and Seek" is with Marnie's brother, Kyle.
There was no interesting interaction. There was nothing interesting about the personalities or characters. The only thing that attracted Marnie to Jake was chemistry, a biological reaction to his smells, etc. that she had never experienced before. She was so drawn to him that she couldn't help herself. She did everything she could think of to get him to have sex with her. He finally did. The side story is that assassins are after him ...more
She was looking for adventure.
Marnie Wright has seen more than her fair share of testosterone. Growing up with four overly protective brothers was one thing. Now a mountain man named ...more
Jake Dolan lives a seemingly quiet life minding his own business until the day he catches Marnie Wright trespassing on his property. Marnie is used to testosterone given her four brothers, but now she is thrust into a world of danger and intrigue with only a stranger to keep her grounded.
The gripping chemistry between the main characters does not quite compensate for the mediocre and excessively drawn out plot.
Jake is a lonely and paranoid yet endearing hero w ...more
Marnie has some decisions about her life to make. She goes up to he Grammy's cabin in the California Sierras for the weekend to figure some things out. While there she meets a foul tempered neighbor, Jake who is all over her for trespass. The only nice thing about him is that Duches ...more
Marnie Wright has been overprotected her whole life by 4 older brothers and a father. Now she is here in the mountains to soul search at her grandmothers cabin. And this mountain man with lo ...more
This is my first book by this author and will not be my last. I loved this book. Couldn't put it down--stayed up until almost 2 am reading it! Great characters, great story, great romance. It's a mix of action, adventure, mystery, suspense and romance.
Warning - do not order all the other books in this series based on the quality of this book w/o first reading reviews on the other ones. I just tried the next book after this and it was horrible.
(view spoiler)[Jake, the 'good' guy, threatens Marnie, our moronic 'heroine', with a gun upon meeting her. She ignores this and a few hours later th ...more
I've been sputtering with my reading lately. Books just aren't reaching out to grab me like usual. When this happens, I go back and re-read some I thought were good. Since I know the outcome, I can just relax and enjoy the words and the story. I originally read Kiss and Tell many years ago but the characters stuck with me! I think this was the very first Cherry Adair book I ever read and then I had to have the whole T-FLAC series.
What I liked: The characters, of course and the dog! The ...more
Marnie is staying at her grandmother's cabin in the mountains for the weekend to think about her future. At 27(?)she has allowed her father and four brothers to (for the best of reasons) dictate her li ...more
Kiss and Tell is the second in the T-FLAC series. It has been a while since I read The Mercenary T-FLAC 1, but from what I can remember, these 2 have little to do with each other besides the T-FLAC connection.
Jake Dolan is a super spy. He lives and breathes being a spy. Right now he's on a forced vacation because someone has set him up to look like one of the bad guys. He's content being a loner and avoiding petite blondes. Unfortunately, Marnie Wright is sharing his mountain with hi ...more
Wenn ich ehrlich bin, habe ich eine völlig andere Geschichte erwartet als die, die ich bekommen habe. Deswegen war sie aber nicht weniger gut. Auch unterscheidet sich der Plot diesmal sehr von dem im ersten Band, was für mich aber ein großer Pluspunkt ist. Leider habe manche Reihen ja die Angewohnheit das die Grundrisse der Geschichte sich immer ähneln, was hier ...more
She runs straight into Jake Dolan, who turns out to be just the man for her, although he's even bossier than her brothers and father combined.
Jake is part of an organization that fights terrorists (T-FLAC) and he's being framed as a mole.
They are the school example of oppos ...more
“And her dog leaned against a very large masculine thigh, and heaved a sigh.
“What the hell is this animal doing?”
Marnie’s feet scuffed up damp leaves as she strolled away without looking back. “She likes you.” She had to raise her voice to be heard as she put s
Marnie Wright has seen more than her fair share of testosterone, having grown up with four over-protective brothers. But now a longhaired mountain man named Jake Dolan has invaded a peaceful day of soul-searching at her grandmother's old cabin. Sure, she was trespassing on his private property, but did he have to pull a gun on her? After b ...more
Jake Dolan was holed up in his mountain retreat for a reason. Someone had sold him out on his last mission, the terrorist he'd dedicated six years of his life to tracking and killing had slipped away from him yet again, and it looked like there was a mole in his agency...one who was setting Jake up to take the fall and threatening his sixteen years with the specialty covert operations unit. Life wasn't exactly a bowl of cherries for him, so when he looked at the monitors and saw a gian ...more
A rundown of my beefs with this book:
-Fairly boring dialogue (Though there were occasional bits that tickled my perverse sense of humor. More laughing at the book, though..)
-A blatant implausibility or two
-Cardboard characters (When they weren't acting out of the character that the author had ...more
3 Stars - For the BIG DOG in the plot and the great TFLAC / suspense story
After the first 20 pages of Kiss & Tell, I was ready to throw this book at the wall ... Marie is SO FREAKING ANNOYING!!!!! What an airhead, constantly talking, lots of it nonsense!
I can't understand why Adair would make Marnie such an idiot. She parks her car 3 miles from the cabin - an isolated cabin - and says at least 3 times in the book that she has a terrible sense of direction. ?
She goes off on a ...more
