2.5 Stars
I've waited since forever for these two to get together~

This started off really good, the plot was done very well~Ikind of enjoyed this one it was filled with so much action...


Aw GAWD...this writer did it again~poor word choices like "Riley smilled and made kissy lips","he giggles and he chuckles" ugh... gives this book a YA feel...I'm so NOT liking that feel in these books it just dosen't fit when your speaking of "BAD-ASS *MEN" with guns...

Another problem* I* had was the world

I have been waiting for James and Derek's story and always hoped that Sandrine would do right by them. I must say that she did an excellent job. It was just the right amount of tension that these two have had throughout the previous books, but not too much. I loved that they got together in enough time that we are able to see them in their relationship. I just loved it. This is a great series! Oh, extra points for the HOT cover :)

Hmm, not too sure how I feel about this one.

More like 2.5ish because I ended up skimming alot.

First, the good: I LOVE Derek (well for about 75% of the book) and would like one of him delivered to my door, stat! Loved that James stood up for himself and I loved their interaction, the foreboding when James went into A'stan and Derek's complete freak out when he was hurt.

Once they got together, though, I didn't really care so much. I skipped their sex scene, and pretty much skimmed anything after

This is the most farfetched nonsense I've read in a while. Everyone's gay?! Pining for someone for six years? I could not concentrate on the words because my eyes were rolling around in my head so much. James, grow a pair.

I found that this book had an unbelievable worldbuilding (a mix of contemporary and paranormal) with spies, macho men, Russian Mafia, and some shifters? My biggest problem though is that the many male characters in this series are all gay(even the straight ones turn out to be gay), and they are all couples who want babies and live in the suburbs. However, they are also killers and spies who go on secret military and non-military missions.

That's the plotting, which by the way sounds like initial
First off, I love this cover. It's about the sexiest I've seen.  I'm a hair disappointed in this story. I kind of figured there'd be some angst or a little more chemistry.  I think it's because James didn't feel like the same James in tw other books.  I'm not sure. I can't put my finger on it. Still lots of sex and lots of the team around.

The men that make up the deadliest team of assassins, more affectionately known as The Skull Blasters, have never hidden the fact that they are gay, that would include their own unique version of James Bond.. better known as Special Agent James Pruitt. Hell, most of them are married, a few of them to werewolves no less!

Their fearless leader, General “fuck it” Derek Jacobs, not so much. He’s never denied that he was gay, but he’s never admitted it either. That is until the love of his life, James

James really came off as a pathetic doormat. This was my least favorite of the series, who waits around on a guy for SIX years? Taking all their calls and being available for them year after platonic year and I never got a good excuse why it took the Geneal so long to step up. All that pining away seemed pathetic to me, James' friends should have been encouraging him to get a life not sit around and wait for some guy who obviously didn't want him all that much.

4.5 stars. This was my favorite of the series so far. I've loved these two from the very beginning, and it was great to see Derek finally getting with the program. When he finally does, these guys are really hot together.

Lucas was really funny and sweet in this book. Always great to see the rest of the gang. We even get to see a little bit of the other team of hotties, which leads to what I'm hoping to be one intense story of Keegan and Vince.

This is one of my favourite series, every book is such a delightful read.
The characters are charming indeed.
I hope there will be plenty sequels to come.

I have actually been able to finish this!

What I liked about the other books were definitely the shifters. No shifters in this one... The assassins are cool, but a bit boring. I like my men to be more in touch with their animal side.

This book concentrates on the couple we knew should be together from the start, but were to pigheaded to admit it: James and Derek.
Derek is making plans to retire from the military because he has finally admitted he cannot live without James. But just when he is going

Okay, this is ridiculous. Every book by this author is so damn good I can't wait for the next one! General Derek Jacobs is finally ready to be with the one man he loves, but things don't go so smoothly for James and Derek (And really, if you've been reading this series, when has it ever?) We get a look at Vicious Vince Markov in this one and his merry band of killers as well. The sneak peek for Russian Prey was just CRUEL!!!! The earlier books had some punctuation mistakes and such but I over-lo ...more

You know what Derek Jacobs, get your head out of your ass! Seriously. Oh man. I wanted to bitch slap you so many times.

Good for James for sticking up for himself. 6 years is a long time to wait for someone who doesn't want you, or so James thinks.

I've said this before and I will say it again, it takes a hell of a person to be married to anyone in service, whether it be military, law enforcement, medical, fire, etc. One there will always be homophobic assholes and two they are most likely married

Have to say that out of all the books that I have read in this addictive series, this was my least favourite, I have to admit - I was disappointed! The build-up between Derek and James has been phenomenal in the earlier books and I couldn't wait to read their story but I felt let down by the author - she never really explained the "why six years." to my satisfaction, I wanted so much more and the author failed to deliver it. Another problem as a reader, was the storyline about Lucas and James. I ...more

This was another excellent book in the Assassin/Shifter series. I have been watching the tension build between Derek and James in the other books and was extremely happy when I realised they were finally going to try and get there act together in this book. I am absolutely loving this series and each book just seems to reel me in that little bit more!!
Highly recommended!!

Another great add to the series. Finally we get to see James Pruitt and Derek Jacobs get together. It was a long time coming, I definitely want to shake Derek to get his crap together since the beginning. Can't wait for the next.

Mostly bored. Didn’t like Derek, and James was so-so.

You’ve known each other for six years, huh? Dude, it’s been way longer than that, since even book three and book one took place way before the beginning of those “six years”.
Okay, clearly I need to read every further volume in this series as a completely new universe and take everything as is. It’s the only way to retain what is left of my sanity.

So we get military/mercenary action in this one! Mind you, it’s not particularly convincing but at

I loved this book because the love between James and Derek has been in quite a few of the books and this was a great completion of their story. Each of the books in the series focuses on one pairing while giving out tidbits about the other members of this group of Skull Blasters and their werewolf group of friends.
Derek Jacobs is a career military man who now runs the Skull Blaster group within the government. He has tried to deny he is gay or at least not announce it to the military. But since

This was the book in the series that I was waiting to read every since the two characters were introduced.

James and Derek, aka The General have had feeling for each other for a very long time. James is openly gay but Derek is not, due to his military status. Pretty much all of the men on his assassin team knew how Derek feels about James and vice versa and they were more than ok with it. Derek, however is reluctant to both claim James and admit he is gay. He is forced to seriously re-think this
I must say that while I was happy to finally get to read James' and Derek's story I was very disappointed and surprised with the length of the story. I purchased this book on Amazon and according to Amazon's product page it was supposedly 342 pages....more than the earlier ones but still not a bad price at $3.99. Then I see according to it's listing here on GRs that it's 223 pages.... hmmmm.... wondered about that but still purchased it though because I have loved this series so far. However, on ...more
