Publisher's Summary

The final "powerfully intense" (Romantic Times) Black Ops, Inc. novel from New York Times best seller Cindy Gerard, featuring a covert private security team and electrifying romantic suspense.

Black Ops, Inc. operative Joe Green is determined to bring to justice the man responsible for former team member Bryan Tompkins' death. He's convinced the ambush that killed Bryan was no coincidence but a setup. Unsure of the consequences of the battle he's about to start, Joe distances himself from both his Black Ops, Inc. team members and the woman he loves, Bryan's sister, Stephanie Tompkins. But Stephanie knows there must be some reason Joe broke it off, and when she hears Joe's charged with a murder in Sierra Leone, she wastes no time in breaking him out of prison. Then they must unravel the mystery behind the ambush and bring resolution to a long-ago betrayal.

What the Critics Say

"Narrator Morais Almeida's deft pacing brings out the drama in this romantic suspense. Joe Green - a privately trained paramilitary operative - is captured in a third-world country. Stephanie Tompkins risks her own life to rescue Joe, who grieved for her brother when he was killed on a previous mission. In the opening scene, danger and high stakes are conveyed by Almeida's breathy, staccato delivery as Joe faces a grim outcome to his personal mission to uncover the truth behind the death of Stephanie's brother. Almeida portrays the military side of Green with a gruffness that contrasts well with the gentle, slower-paced tone the character falls into when he's with Stephanie. Similarly, Stephanie is richly portrayed with a softness that is especially loving and sweet with Joe. But Almeida also depicts Stephanie's fierceness when she finds herself in Sierra Leone, coordinating Joe's rescue. Almeida's range of modulations brings out the characters' myriad emotions, including bittersweet moments between Joe, Stephanie, and the boy soldiers who assist in Joe's rescue. Almeida's crisp enunciation also sharpens the gritty urban scenes, adding to the effectiveness of this listening experience." (AudioFile Magazine)

    "Just Okay."

    I usually like Cindy Gerard and love her books for action, suspense and great romance. I enjoyed the series but this was too damp, the characters too serious. I get that the circumstances dictated the somber writing but its was way over the top. The female character was miserable. Yes, she was quiet - then finding her voice and strength but she came off as sullen and a little bitchy. I don't recall any time where she smiled? Sam - the iconic alpha was broken and reliant on her which was a great twist, but he suddenly lost the ability to even lend his expertise from his days in the CIA. He acted a little dim. Only in the action sequence near the end did he show some bad assery and initiative. All in all, book was well written. Lagged a lot as the characters came off as glum and serious. It was hard work to trudge through it. Didn't give me the warm and fuzzies.
