I've read many Cindy Gerard books and enjoyed the danger and excitement that she writes into her stories. This was very slow to start and never really reeved up to what I expect from her books.
I will still read her future books. One mediocre book won't keep me away.
I thought this was a great addition to the series, book 2.
I thought Abbie handled everything that was thrown at her pretty well, and Sam didn't let his vengence shadow the need to keep her safe and do what was right.. I highly recommend this series to anyone who likes some "bang bang shot 'em up" with their romance :)
Sam Lang is on a mission to find (and terminate) the bastard who killed his sister. And nothing will get in his way not even Abbie Hughes. Sam will use Abbie to get to Nader since Abbie's brother is a drug mule for Nader. Abbie turns the tables on Sam though and the race is on to retrieve her brother and kill Nader. Regardless of Sam's tactics, he's one of the good guys who instantly regrets what he's done to Abbie. This is a fast-paced, action-packed thrill ride.
