Cherry Adair has made a name for herself with the exciting series of T-FLAC books. Each story, featuring a hot, sexy operative of this privately funded, top-secret, anti-terrorist group has the twists and turns of an action-adventure novel and the steam of a high-powered Jacuzzi. HOT ICE is no different, with Huntington "Hunt" St. John taking center stage, attempting to gain intel on a terrorist madman named Jose Morales.

Morales, a man who believes that anyone who disagrees with his beliefs deserves to die, has been amassing jewels, art, and weapons in an underground mine for years. Hunt, assigned to find out when Morales attends to strike the world's population, needs to open the top-of-the-line safe in his domain to gather the computer disks that are there-he's sure that those disks hold all of the information he needs to deter Morales and his mission. The problem is that he needs someone who can open the supposedly uncrackable safe, and there's only one person who can do that-Taylor Kincaid, a jewel thief and safe cracker who is thought to be the best in the world.

Unfortunately, before Hunt can reach Taylor and plead for her assistance, Taylor is arrested in San Cristobel for breaking into the home of-you guessed it-Jose Morales. Now Hunt believes he has the ultimate power chip to get Taylor to help him-he'll bail her out of jail if she gives him the computer disks that she stole. Taylor , of course, plays dumb, assuring Hunt that she has no idea what he's talking about. But when Morales's henchmen come to pay her a visit, Taylor has second thoughts on holding out on Hunt. After all, the man with the power and resources of T-FLAC behind him might be the only person who can keep her alive long enough to bring down the terrorist.

Ms. Adair has penned another sexually charged winner. The action-adventure part of the story is top-notch, with believable characters and situations that will have you rooting for the good guys and crying for the downfall of Morales and his men. The sexual chemistry between Hunt and Taylor isn't necessarily instantaneous, but it's an integral part of the story. Neither one of them is sure that they can truly trust the other, and the situations they find themselves in only add to the age-old idiom of whether they really love each other or are just responding to the danger around them.

I did miss seeing the Wright brothers in HOT ICE, the operatives from the previous T-FLAC stories, but Hunter St. John is an intriguing and sexy new hero, and his alternate aloofness and genuine caring made for an intriguing story. Taylor is a woman that reminds you of Lara Croft in Tomb Raider or a non-vampire-fighting Buffy, and her slow nature of trusting added depth and emotion to the storyline. All in all, HOT ICE is definitely a book to pick up-you won't be disappointed!

Overall i really enjoyed this book. It was very good up until about 3/4 of the way through, when it got kinda cheesy. The love scenes were VERY well-written, but the action sequences towards the end got a little monotonous. Still, it's a short, fun read that most people should like.

The only reason I even gave it 3 stars was because I did think the author had a good imagination to come up with the plot line and the character of Taylor.
Its nice to see strong willed women with talent that can sometimes do things better than boys, lol...especially in this type of setting.
What I did not enjoy were the pages and pages of unnessesary plotlines. As others have relayed the book is about a group of private contracted "cia type" operatives battling terrorism. Its hard to explain everything about the groups of badguys in this book without the review being super long, but basically by the end I felt that so much of the book was taken up by unnessesary plot twists and turns and not on developing the relationship between Hunt and Taylor. **spoiler** before they went in to battle he tells her he doesn't want to want her and suddenly after she gets hurt he wants to marry her.**
Bottom line was that this book felt more like a thriller action type book where two of the characters occasionally had sex and "fell in love" at the end, which wasn't what I was looking for. I expected more of a romantic suspense book. I will also add that this was the first of Ms. Adairs books and maybe I picked a dud.(although I did check reviews first :) )

I really like this series. This was an okay book for me. I am continuing to read this T-FLAC series to get to the parnormal T-FlAC operatives. Cherry Adair never disappoints me with her HOT men.

Taylor & Hunt sizzle in this TFLAC story. She is the best thief he can find to help him against a nasty terrorist. He doesn't want to want her but he does as she does him. Their chemistry is great. The story is great. The other characters are great. This is a wonderful series & I am looking forward to White Heat. Enjoy!
