Kiss and Tell (T-FLAC #2)
What an action-packed story!
Honestly, it took me a little while to get into the story. I struggled to connect with the heroine's character during the first few chapters. But before I got irritated with her, something interesting happened and then, out of the blue, I was thrown directly into the action. At this point, I knew this book had me hooked and I completely lost myself in it. As always, Cherry Adair writes such heart-stopping and compelling action/fight scenes. While reading this, on one ...more
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

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.
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
Definitely a good, entertaining read!
It has suspense, danger, death, love, sex, and family.
It could use some editing and a little work on the inconsistencies. They don't take away from the story but are definitely noticeable.
And as someone working in healthcare.... I simply must say that there is no way anyone receives "2 and a half" units of blood unless the person dies or has a reaction to the blood transfusion. Nobody would waste half a unit of blood for no reason. Ok I said it. :-)
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.

“And her dog leaned against a very large masculine thigh, and heaved a sigh.
