4 -5 stars – Romantic Suspense

I’m a big fan of Alden’s Gemini Men romantic suspense series about the alpha ex-military Taggart brothers, twins Ethan and Derek and eldest Danny, who run a private security firm specializing in sensitive, undercover work for very high-profile, elite clientele. Ethan in Caught is the easygoing playboy brother, Derek in Kept is the quiet, cold, serious, and hardhearted of the three, and then there’s broody, badass Danny in Unleashed. I didn’t enjoy this story quite a

I loved this entire series, and I recommend to any romantic suspense fan. Ms. Alden writes lovable alphas, and in this case all of them are former military.
You have to read them in order:
1 - Caught, 2 - Kept, 3 - Unleashed.

I especially liked Danny's story, because I felt like I got to get inside his head and find out why he was such a jerk in most of the first two books. I think Caroline is a good match for him.

This is a former lovers reunited story.
Yet another good RS by Ms Alden, admittedly instead of breadcrumbs to work out who is the bad guy she leaves dirty great big chunks of bread so a bit predictable, but it was good to see it played out.....As this was the final book in the series I would have liked a more detailed epilogue.
This is my first book by this author and I was hooked right from the beginning. A romantic suspense thriller packed with emotions and a great story.

Danny Taggart, the Hero is an emotionally closed character after the disappearance of his mother Anne whom he thought had walked away from the family. Enter Caroline Medford, the heroine who was the love of Danny's life, until she walked away from what Danny had become.

Caroline life is in danger so she turns to Danny for help who initially refuses t

That was the last one. I don't know why, but often the first title of a series is the lamer and the series improves going on. There are some exceptions, for me, like SEP'Chicago Stars or NS's Psy-Changelings but usually I find the first one not as good as the followers.

BTW this one was the best for me. A bit violent, one thing I didn't like it's the book is very graphic about everything, sex, violence and so on. But really I liked it. Both hero and heroine were strong and able to take care of th

I didn't have much hope starting this book since the second book in the series Kept was a big disappointment...

But this was really good...and for once it wasn't the female being the stupid stubborn one...I liked that :-)

and I'm sad to say that the plot is not that hard to believe....I wish I could say that something like that would never ever happen..but the truth is that it does happen...

Unleashed was a pleasant surprise. It was hot and sexy, had a vaguely unlikely plot but it was also probably the most reasonable plot I’ve read in a romantic suspense. It is part of an overarching story of three brothers who have a private security company called Gemini Security. They’re a little cheesy at times – like the fact that they all wear GPS watches to show them where they are at all times. And there’s the typical strain of too much saccharine when the men find happiness with a woman. T ...more
What a cracking climax (pardon the pun) to thr Gemini series! The emotional complexities with Scary Danny are just superb. The previous two books were just hot, hot, hot but this one was hot AND a great story It's so well-written that I actually bought the old hooking-up-with-ex storyline, which normally just raises a sigh! and a tut! from me. The hero is a hot hunk and the heroine is his strong but damaged ex. The thriller side-story is also really great. Loved it.

This book was very Shannon McKenna like. It had a bit too much of what I call the "ick factor" for my personal taste. The story kept me interested but dragged in a few places. I did like both Danny and Caroline. I always enjoy stories of people reconnecting after being apart for years. It was good but not great.

Quite liked it. It was only the graphic language in the "it" scenes and the certain words to describe certain body parts that wasn't endearing to me, but I was able to go past it and enjoy the book.
Liked the entire confession and opening about the past scene a lot.

I liked it in general but I was put off by the two main characters describing the "bad"guy. He was only in his fifty's but they had him on Viagra and kept referring to him as old and decrepit. I take offence for myself and for the men in my life in their fifties.

The 3rd installment took a little more concentration on my part with the wild story line - but it didn't stop me from enjoying it. Will there be a 4th??

Like the two other books in this series, I enjoyed the action and suspense. All three of the brothers are hot, intelligent bad-asses.

Danny was a complicated character. He stirred so many emotions in me…He had some serious issues stemming from the two most important relationships of his life – his mom, and Caroline. He felt abandoned and betrayed by both, and the result was a surly, belligerent, untrusting son of a bitch. He was so raw there were times no one was exempt from his wrath, including

Danny Taggart is the biggest badass of all the Gemini Men. And there's only one thing a woman can do with a man this hot, hard, and ready for action. Give he a taste of his own damn medicine. Danny wanted Caroline Medford with a passion that he has kept bottled up for 12 years. Once he gets her he still continues to push her away.

Caroline needs Danny's skill, for investigation as well as other things. They enter into a test of wills to uncover a secret that has been buried for 18 years. When th

Wow !!! ga pernah kecewa dengan cerita Jami Alden.
Seperti biasa, selalu mengawali series dengan buku yang terakhir. hehehehe
Ada sedikit rasa kecewa karena penjahatnya d kemukakan hampir di awal-awal cerita jadi ga ada unsur kejutannya. Namun jalan ceritanya bagus, karakter Danny yang Alpha Male, murung, dan keras hati terasa sedikit menyebalkan. Karakter wanita nya Caroline terlalu lunak dan gampang termakan rayuan si Danny ... iihhh bikin gemessss..jual mahal dikit napa sayyyyy....

I have not read the previous books regarding the Taggart brothers and I thought it might ruin the story for me since this is not book one. However I was pleasantly suprised at this book. It has mystery and romance. Danny is a man who keeps everything bottled up and Caroline is the only woman he has ever loved. They were high school sweethearts and they drifted apart. Now the find each other once again by a tragedy but leaves Caroline in need of Danny's help. She's accused of killing her older an ...more
This was my favorite of the three books. I could not wait to read about Danny and this did not disappoint. He was such an asshole throughout the series and knew that he would be an emotionally charged man, This guy had so much baggage and unresolved feelings it literally tore at my heart reading.

The chemistry between him and Caroline was real, emotional and they had so much history that needed to be dealt with. I am disappointed that it has ended and look forward to reading more by JA.Jami Alden

Danny, you are a gigantic ASS. You had my blood boiling and not in regards to sex scenes. Sure you are great at your job and show real courage and real expertise at what you do but as a person.... Grrrrrr. Of course, you kinda figured this out already about Danny. But if you have read the series, by the time you finish this book, you understand complexities and complications and issues the characters have...

I wasn't a big fan of either Danny or his brother Derek but Danny had better character development. I liked the scene where Caroline unleashes on him and he spends the night ruminating about what she said. I also thought it was more believable when he pushed her away again in the end. No one is going to change their coping strategies/temperament that quickly so his behavior seemed more authentic to me. I also really liked the way the author tied up the storyline about Anne Taggart.

The 3rd book in this series and author. This about the oldest of the brothers and a past "Love". The only reason I didn't give it a 5 stars is because I'm not a big fan of stories that back and forth in time. Yes, you need it in this story but I just not a big fan of it.

BTW I think the "model" they used on the cover wasn't right for the book. Good looking guy but WAY too young looking! JMHO!

This was an excellent suspense plot with a wonderful, fast-paced mystery solved, which was ruined by a half-baked erotic romance subplot that was intended to be the main plot. The hero ends up going after the girl, 12 years after abandoning her, and then abandons her again. He follows her for a make-up attempt, and she trusts him?

I have no respect for either of them, but liked the mystery.

I thought that he, the male protagonist, was a bit of a douche, and not in a sexy way either. He fucked it up with her but good, and all it really took for what I thought to be a mature, proud woman to take him back was a poor-me-puppy look, an erection, a hike, and basically, "OOh, me so horny" line. *I shake my head*

This was the first book I had read in the Gemini series. I loved the cover and thought it would be a great book. Little did I know it was even better than that.

Danny and Caroline had a crazy romance that all went to pieces, then they get a second chance to find out if what they had is still there, with a whole lotta problems in between!

Love it, read it!!

Love the Gemini Men series for numerous reasons..... Hot, strong Alphas who knew a good thing when they found it & weren't afraid to show their women...... It's sexy as hell when men admit vulnerabilities.... No corny ass dialogue.... Honest emotions, raw, passionate lovin.... What could be better in a romance?

Great book! Just think the hero needed to do a bit more groveling for being such and A*$ to the heroine. I just can't myself...but I think it sets the stage for what's to come if a balance of power is not restored to a semblance of equality before the either the H or the h can be forgiven for what they have done wrong.

Danny is definitely my favorite of all three brothers! I was so into the plot, and characters I read this in an afternoon. This third book had me on the edge of my seat, with ex-girlfriend and finally finding out what happened to their mother. Great, great read!!! I have and will continue to recommend this trilogy to friends!
