dismissed Reed in Take No PrisonersWhy bother Crystal sighed He s probably gay anyway Another sigh Or a cowboy Or a cop One s as bad as the otherand led him on a merry chase, she started a hot no string attached relationship with him.A thing I loved in this story is that despite what she went through, Crystal didn t suddenly turn into a hopeless damsel in distress but stayed true to herself and view spoiler the fact that she ended up the first female in the BOI team was the icing on the cake hide spoiler.Here again, I loved the interactions between the BOI as well as the short encounter with Cavanaugh.I loved that book 3 Another winner by Ms Gerard I got up very early this morning and because I really wanted to read about Johnny I started this book straight away and several hours

because I really wanted to read about Johnny I started this book straight away and several hours later I was still laying on my couch reading it and refused to move until it was finished.This book had loads of action and both strong H h I was really looking forward to reading about Johnny and he didn t disappoint From the glimpses we had seen of him in the other stories we could see that he was a player and committment shy so knew it would be interesting to watch him surrender to his feelings and admit that he loved Crystal They had been having a relationship before the start of this story but it was very casual whenever he was in town Ms Gerard wrote it sensitively in that although she hadn t written as much we kind of deduced that neither of them had slept with anyone else since they had started hooking up.At the start of the book Johnny recognised that this woman was dangerous to his way of life and that if he continued to see her he would fall in love with her But of course it was too late and he was already in love but refused to acknowledge that He was about to walk away when he finds she has been kidnapped and dragged to a foreign country so he goes to rescue her.Crystal is a very strong woman which I like so she was definately my kind of girl She could kick arse as well as any of the men and astounded them several times with her knowledge of guns, ability at shooting them and of course her ability to fight and protect herself view spoiler I loved the end of the book where she took on 3 cold blooded killers by herself and fought for her survival hide spoiler

LineIt was business as usual at Bali Hai Casino on the Vegas strip, which meant that every nut job and wacko who could arrange bail was on the prowl WHISPER NO LIES is another thrilling instalment from Cindy Gerard s Black Ops series and with each book better than the last this is a great ride Skilfully whisking us away to yet another exotic location Gerard gives us a kick butt heroine this time to go along with the daring roof top rescues, shootouts, explosions and boat chases We also get the sweetest of love stories between a couple that never expected to find it especially with each other Of course the entire team turns up so there s also some great secondary characters who when tied together with an international crime lord and human trafficking give you everything you could possibly want in romantic suspense.Crystal and Johnny as our heroes were first introduced to us in Take No Prisoners and have in fact been sleeping together ever since which is part of what makes this story so interesting I ve never read a romance before where the couple is already together and wondered how the author was going to make it exciting without the usual build up to the deed Well let me tell you Gerard manages and then some This is one exciting couple and watching them try to keep things casual when emotions take over is a lot of fun The first time they do it with feeling there are tender looks and words and then when each subsequently freaks out you ll laugh but your heart strings will give a little tug too.When a wealthy Asian man propositions Crystal at the Vegas casino she manages she flat out refuses and immediately puts the strange man and his cronies out of her mind I mean it s not like men don t hit on her all the time besides right now her hands are full with Texan heartbreaker Johnny Reed His mystery job has him out of town again which suits Crystal just fine because as good as the sex is and as much as she likes him she knows Johnny will never be anythingthan just a fling That night however sees Crystal getting kidnapped and when she wakes up in Jakarta Indonesia, branded and a prisoner in Yao s white slavery ring she knows she s in serious trouble Now if she only knew someone who could rescue her, someone with say military training and a whole team to back him up Despite his flirty grin and playboy ways Johnny can t get Crystal off his mind, damn if that little pixie hasn t found a way into his closed off heart When she goes missing its up to Johnny to get the BOI s together and lead a potential suicide mission into Yao s lair to rescue her and likely ruin his carefree heartbreaker act in the process.This is a fantastic series that I can t get enough of and Gerard s not so happily ever after endings continue to leave me guessing until the last moment before providing a glimpse of our couples future and updates on past characters Cheers Crystal Debrowski has been working as a floor supervisor at a Las Vegas casino when she is accused of

Crystal s problems and her disappearance He travels to Jakarta to rescue Crystal and enlists his Blacks Ops, Inc buddies to help him take down Yao Long.This romantic suspense series gets better with each book The romance in this book is strong We met both Crystal and Johnny in the previous book of the series Johnny is a love em and leave em with a smile on their face type guy His casual relationship with Crystal is exactly what they are both looking for Crystal has given up on a series relationship and just wants a good time She is very tough and holds her own with the Black Ops team She s not a woman who constantly needs rescuing The action in this book never lets up Johnny and his team find that Yao Long is an arms dealer whose side business is human trafficking Not only do they have to find Crystal, but also get out of Indonesia without Long s army of soldier s finding them My rating 4.5 Stars 4 STARS I revised my rating I really enjoyed this one, Far better than book one, and I think my initial 5 stars ratings was mainly due to the fact of the ginormous difference between book 1 and 3. 3 and I loved it So much action and suspense in this one.as well as some steamy scenes and a few laughs Johnny Reed was such an arrogant, conceited man boy, but was it all an act Crystal is a pixie with spiked red hair and some bad ass moves when needed What a pair they are I enjoyed this one was beginning to end We also get to catch up with the previous characters. I love this series and the story of Johnny and Crystal is just fantastic, except for Johnny endlessly beating himself up over how his father perceived him and Crystal lamenting how all her other men used her for a good time and split This is a very exciting, adventurous and seductive read It does well as a standalone, but reading in order is recommended.Crystal Debrowski manages security at a

, but you try to draw it out and make the book last as long as possible That s how this one was for me I loved everything about it, and it even made me tear up at the end Whisper No Lies is book 3 in Cindy Gerard s fantastic Black Ops series, and while they are all excellent, this one is my personal favorite, largely due to the characters of flirty adonis Johhny Duane Reed and brave little spitfire and one kick ass heroine, Crystal Debrowski I could not get enough of these two Chemistry They had it in spades Passion Oh yeah Fearlessness Both had it, except when it came to love Crystal had big time trust issues involving good looking, sweet talking men, and Johnny due to some crappy parenting, had lots of problems with emotional intimacy The characters first meet in the previous book, Take No Prisoners, Crystal is Abbie s best friend, Johnny works with Sam at Black Ops and we get a hint of their combustible chemistry and what s to come.Crystal is a security manager in a Las Vegas casino, although she d much rather be a cop, like her well respected retired cop Dad But since she couldn t pass the police physical hearing loss in one ear , this 5 foot, curvy, red headed dynamo with a pixie face nicknamed Tinkerbell or Tink , by Johnny has to be content taking care of security business and fending off come ons from overly amorous guests at the Las Vegas casino where she works Despite her petite stature, Crystal has no trouble handling herself, until she meets one customer who is unwilling to take no for an answer Mr Yao Long, 5 4 , Asian ancestry, and with a bodyguard to do his propositioning he wants Crystal to be his sex slave , doesn t appear all that threatening, but ahhh, appearances can be deceiving You just don t say no to Mr Yao And live to tell about it.Well, Crystal s refusal to Mr Yao lands her in a heap of trouble The powerful Yao uh oh, he s an international crime lord, involved in everything shady from illegal arms trafficking to human trafficking proceeds to wreck Crystal s career, ultimately landing her in jail when 200,000 is missing under her watch at the casino Of course Crystal doesn t realize that the slimy Yao is bent on her destruction he was just another unpleasant blip on her men I would never date radar So when Crystal turns to Sam and Abbie for help, Sam is able to learn that Yao is the one behind Crystal s troubles But before he and Johnny Duane Reed Crystal s bed partner when he s in town can figure out how to get Crystal out of her predicament, she s abducted by the obsessive Yao s henchmen and taken to be part of his personal harem in Jakarta, Indonesia, where the powerful Yao s influence stretches far and wide.Johnny s not going to let Crystal go down in flames or become a part of Yao s smarmy operations, and he high tails it to Jakarta to save his lady But while he s able to save Crystal in a daring rescue, will he be able to save the other girls one who s a daughter of a military general who are being held against their will and part of Yao s human trafficking network Will the addition of Johnny s teammates from Black Ops Inc help to defeat Yao Will they be able to rescue the general s daughter and make a small dent in his vast human trafficking network Will Johnny and Crystal s relationship develop beyond the we re just having some hot sex stage And will Johnny, Crystal and the BOIs be able to get out of Jakarta alive or will Yao s power and influence be too much for them Action, this book had plenty of action, and it was very well done and quite believable CG s words were so descriptive, from the heat and humidity when Johnny and Crystal were running through the streets of Jakarta to avoid Yao s men, to the scenes where the guys were formulating a plan to take down Yao and assembling all their weaponry Everything was clearly spelled out and I was able to follow along very easily and every tension filled moment made me feel like I was there or at least imagining it as a movie.Characterization Probably the best part of the book From CG s physical descriptions of the characters Crystal knew what men saw when they looked at her sex on a stick Pixie features, spiky red hair, and fairy green eyes Showgirl breasts and round hips that swayed to a sultry beat when she walked and drew heartbreakers and bizarros from the four corners of the earth And of Johnny Hair too long and too blond Eyes too sexy and too blue Body too buff, ego in danger of liftoff Standing there in his tight, faded jeans, painted on T shirt, and snakeskin boots, he looked like God s guilty gift Trouble was, he knew it Gerard has a way of painting a picture, not just physically, but emotionally too The reader gets a clear picture of where the characters are at emotionally in their lives why Crystal doesn t really trust men why she expects them to leave her once they get what they want from her, why she now keeps her emotions in check and Johnny at bay, and why she and her heart eventually just can t resist the charming and needs some real lovin Johnny Gerard s depiction of Johnny and why he s not the over confident, happy go lucky charmer that he wants the world to see, was a real eye opener To see a guy that has so much to offer think so little of himself, well, at times it brought a tear to my eyes When he saidI ve nevernever been anyone s best thing before , it just about broke my heart Crystal needed Johnny just as much as he needed her, and it was a beautiful thing to watch their relationship blossom from sex buddies to I can t live without you I loved the gift Johnny gave to Crystal near the end and how unsure he was that she d like it what a sweetheart They had some romantic, tender moments together as well as some scorch the sheets sexual interludes , and I was just praying that they would get the nerve up to recognize that they were in love, were meant to be, and to embrace it.I could go on and on about this one, but I ll just sum it up to say if you like romantic suspense that has plenty of easy to follow, big screen heroic action, a smarmy villain, a cast of lovable, charismatic supporting characters who need their own stories told, and most importantly a couple who grows emotionally and that you can respect and root for, you ll want to read this book I don t know how Cindy Gerard is going to top this one, but I ll give Feel the Heat a try next I m not ready to stop with this series yet 5 big stars `Kindle ☞ Whisper No Lies ⇭ In New York Times bestselling author Cindy Gerard s fiery new romantic suspense series, when danger
