Six years ago, tough-as-nails military contractor Bobby Taggart met the woman of his dreams in war-torn Kabul—a sexy, whip-smart war correspondent who approached him at a local bar, took him to bed, made him fall in love…and then mysteriously disappeared. In her wake, the terrorist leader he’d been mining for valuable intel was assassinated—then Bobby discovered his phone had been bugged. And he’s pretty damn sure he’s been played for a fool.
Now, a covert security mission for the U.S. Embassy in Oman unexpectedly reunites him with Talia Levine, the woman who betrayed him and broke his heart. And there’s one more secret she hasn’t told him—one that will change his world. But as the heat of anger mixes with a still-simmering passion, dangerous forces close in, their sights set on Talia. Trust is the only way they will survive—but with their lives in the balance, can Bobby risk trusting her again?
My Review: With Taking Fire I don’t know what I loved more about the book the romance or the action. With Taking Fire the 4th book in the One-Eyed Jacks Cindy Gerard takes us on a wonderful adventure of betrayal, retribution, and redemption.
Six years ago Bobby was on a mission in war torn country of Kabul, the mission retrieve intel information. The mission was well on its way to being completed. When the mission went south, Bobby discovered that his phone had been bugged and that the he was “Honey Pot” by one of Mossad’s best operative Talia.
Talia was one of Mossad’s best operative, she always completed an assignments. Until, Bobby Taggart happened. Her missions get close to Bob Taggart. To complete her assignment she must kill Mohammed al-Attar. Al-Attar comes on Mossad’s radar when he killed school children. One of the school children just so happens to be one of Mossad’s top leaders’ grandchildren, so Mohammed al-Attar just reached the top of mossad’s hit list real quick. The mission was a success and a failure for Talia she got one man and lost the other.
Talia reminded me of Ziva David the character on NCIS, gorgeous and able to get the job done. Cindy Gerard steps up the game in Taking Fire when we learned that Talia had secrets and that those secrets could get her killed and the man that she loves.
Taking Fire the first book I ever read in this series by Cindy Gerard, definitely putting the others on my yearly must read list.
