This is the forth instalment from Cindy Gerard’s fast paced and super-sexy Black-Ops series and fans won’t be disappointed. It's another great ride, filled with action, adventure, exotic locations, sweet lovin and top notch writing.
Even though I never felt as connect ...more
Rafe has a heartbreaking childhood which he manages to overcome by enlisting in the military, ...more
Every one of this series has been brilliant and by now I would have thought they would start getting a little repetative but no they haven't! They have all been great individual stories and the only things you will find repeated in every one is there is bad guys, sexy super alpha men and really strong independant women.
I was looking forward to reading Raphael's story - To be honest I have been looking forward to reading them all ☺. I wasn't too sure about BJ in the ...more
This is the fourth in Gerard's Black Ops series.
Rafael "Choirboy" Mendoza meets B.J. Chase on an op in Venezuela when their missions cross paths. The sparks begin to heat up from their first touch, but anger keeps them separated.
Three months later their objectives cross paths again. Only this time they are on the same side. There is a traitor selling US secrets and they need to find out who and how to stop it.
Like all the other books in the series, this one gets into the action right ...more
Yet another solid addition to this series. It wasn't my favorite, but I liked it.
I recommend reading this series in order.
After a run-in in Venezuela a few months back, DIA agent B.J. Chase hopes to never see black ops agent Raphael Mendoza ever again. But then disturbing news comes out that a traitor may be selling E-bomb technology to terrorists and B.J. is forced to work with Rafe in order to save the world.
In the process, Rafe must confront his past in Colo ...more
Did I 'feel the heat'? Oh yeah! I felt the heat all the way to my bones.
This story was a little different from Cindy's other Black Op books. This novel wasn't entirely focused on the connection between B.J & Rafe - it also focused quite a bit on the growing sexual tension between ...more
I really liked Raphael "Choirboy" Mendoza from the start but B.J. is the heroine I liked the least in the series. It took me until their undercover op in Venezuela to start to warm up to her. Once there, despite the dramatic circumstances and even though she still had difficulty to be a team player, she really cracked me up.
I also liked the subplot with Stephanie as well as the BOI participation.
From hints in past books, I thought Rafe was finally going to tell Stephanie (his fallen comrade's sister) that he loved her...and I was really looking forward to it. But -- back-the-truck-up! -- he quickly changed his mind and, w ...more
This time the main character is a woman (BJ) so hurt by the past that she's terrified of falling in love. Typically that's a role reserved for a man, and it was refreshing to read this gender twist. BJ works as a U.S. Defense Intelligence officer whose sting gets interrupted by a group of BOIs. Quite an auspicious meet ...more
I also didn't connect with either of the main characters; I just didn't feel the love.
B.J. Chase: Some thought she was cold hearted, but I didn't think so. She built up a wall to protect herself and she had some trust issues. (Who doesn't?) Add that to the fact that she works in a mans world... Well she had to be he best that she could be. She also had a tough time growin ...more
Man, this book is so hard to rate. The writing was great, the suspense plot was tight and compelling, and the characterisations were good. But.....
This is Romantic Suspense, and the romance part of the story was a let-down. I just wasn't feeling it with Rafe and B.J. Sure, B.J. needed to get over herself in a major way, but I don't think that was the whole issue. For me, this was one of those books where you don't get to see the H/h fall in love, it just all of a sudden is.
Lucky for me, ...more
Si, algunos detalles claman al cielo (capo de cartel y banquero de dicho capo, sin contraseña en los portátiles donde tiene todos los datos importantes???? por mencionar lo más llamativo), pero es lo de menos, como las sombrillitas en los cócteles de playa, son superfluas y tontorronas pero vienen con lo que realmente interesa ;)
The romance was a little flat for me. Or rather, it was B.J. I didn't dislike her but she was also a bit of a coldfish in many ways. I wanted someone more from her.
I was kinda disappointed with this book. It had so much potential but there were too many leaps of logic and I didn't feel much emotion in the relationship Rafe/B.J. However it still a good book.
BJ has hurts from her past – mostly due to an alcoholic mother. She has no friends or love relationships, and she doesn’t want any. She is a field agent for the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA). There has been a leak inside the NSA. Stephanie works for the NSA as a cryptanalyst. BJ is assigned to work with Stephanie to help discover the source of the leak. Stephanie uncover ...more
This was cute. A totally reluctant woman pushing the hunky Rafe away. Guns and bombs? Bring it on. Possible relationship? Watch her run like hell! Then there's the treat of a pair of women foiling the bad guys and doing it well.
Too cute when Raphael meets ...more
All the boys of the BOI team, and a nice little surprise, two people get together and I would not have guessed that was coming.
Where: The Washington DC area and Venezuela
Feel the Heat was not my favorite in this series for several reasons but the number one reason was that I simply could not relate to BJ. She was just too hard core for me. I've known a few women like that and frankly I can't picture them ever changing so it was hard for me to see hope for her ...more
Cindy Gerard amazes me, I was taken on another wild fun sexy ride!
Raphael and the Black Ops team and DIA Agent B.J have to stop the bad guys. And to do that Raphael has to go back to his roots and deal with old family ghosts and issues. The beginning was hard for me to follow honestly, and i started skimming paragraphs. The it started to get fun, exciting and steamy! B.J. kinda got on my nerves, she appeared standoffish and bitchy, not just with him but everyone. You eventually ...more
Another action-packed novel by Cindy Gerard. I tell ya, this woman can write action like nobody's business. From the beginning of the book to the end.
This was Raphael and B.J.'s book. I fell totally in love with Rafe. We learned about his past and it broke my heart and I wanted to hold him and make it all better. B.J. had a past as well. Hers nearly cost her Rafe.
The reason I deducted half a star was because I didn't feel the connection between Rafe and B.J. During the first half of ...more
I downgraded the rating to 4 instead of 5 stars for this one.
I had forgotten how annoying and stubborn BJ was and how much she was not deserving of Rafe's attentions, IMO. She was too hard, too cold, too unfeeling and too closed off to anyone. She did not give me a lot of hope.
What I really liked however is their episode playing fiancés, with BJ behaving like a clueless and heartless bimbo. This whole stage is indeed excellent. The first part definitely not up to par and I wa ...more
This is Rafe's (Raphael Mendoza's) story although it's partially shared with Joe & Stephanie...
This is a must read series if you like to sit on t ...more
Cindy Gerard maîtrise à la perfection ces romantic suspense entre aventures, romances et géopolitique. Elle le montre encore ici avec le tome consacré à Rafe Mendoza, un des membres de cette équipe d’agents privés qui peuvent trouver une solution à tous les problèmes. Nous connaissons la plupart des protagonistes et Rafe est, pour les amateurs de la série, un séduisant Latino. Colombien d’origine, il était très proche de celui qui a rapproché tous ces homm ...more
The first part is incredibly well-written. There's almost an absurd amount of detail that goes into researching the DIA, the NSA, and the overall workings of the American senior government system, before the terrorism conspiracy is revealed to the reader. There is so much detail, you're incredibly immersed into this story and comple ...more
