    As far as regular mass market romantic suspense books go this is pretty good, but as with most mass market romantic suspense the author unfortunately shirks on the romance and focuses too much on the suspense There was so much potential to make this into a really strong love story but it just never gets there and the love story is almost secondary.Book 2 in Gerard s Bodyguards series focuses on the sister Eve Garret She gets a disturbing message from a young woman she used to be a bodyguard fo As far as regular mass market romantic suspense books go this is pretty good, but as with most mass market romantic suspense the author unfortunately shirks on the romance and focuses too much on the suspense There was so much potential to make this into a really strong love story but it just never gets there and the love story is almost secondary.Book 2 in Gerard s Bodyguards series focuses on the sister Eve Garret She gets a disturbing message from a young woman she used to be a bodyguard for and decides to see what s up As the mystery unravels she realizes that someone is out to kill her too but she doesn t know why While trying to track down Tiffany she meets up with PI Mac who was her first love in high school but it ended very badly the wham bam thank you ma am kind and now the sparks fly Mac tries to play it like Mr Cool but mature when he meets her and Eve gives him the icy cold shoulder Mac is a great hero He s the strong jock type who s really a sensitive soul when you cut through the macho crap and slowly he lets Eve see that Eve wants everyone to see her as a tough as nails I can get by on my own kind of woman and she is but she wants someone to share her life with.The tension build up between the two is well done especially when Mac calls her cupcake just to get her riled he does a lot of that throughout the book and deep down she loves it even if she d have some zingers of a comeback lined up to shut him up The love hate pull between the two of them lasted for a good portion of the book There s some of that I ll protect you no matter what on Mac s part which heightened the romance aspect too Unfortunately there was only one good steam scene and the rest are all fade black Hate when authors do that and it s pretty common in RS.As for the suspense, it s ok if too predictable Spoiled rich girl Tiffany comes from a loveless family, stuck with bad people because she s strung out on drugs, they keep plying her with the drugs and take her money while prancing around the States When the psycho killer was revealed I was surprised but it was a somewhat convoluted and unbelievable when a drive by would ve been so much easier to get their revenge.One thing that wasn t well developed was Eve s big secret from high school after her one night with Mac It was built up as something very hush hush and you figure that this will be a big moment between her and Mac but it really fizzled into a few lines of back story narration as if the author was getting close to her word count max so she let that drop The heart to heart never happened A bit sloppy there stringing the reader along like that As for the ending it was way too corny for my liking.Overall I really liked the hero, the story itself was alright, the heroine was good too but it was just missing something in the romance to give it a 5

    I had a hard time getting into this book It wasn t until about halfway through that I was into it enough to want to keep reading I didn t necessarily think it was bad, it just didn t trip my switches.Series note I wouldn t necessarily say this series so far needs to be read in order, but there are probably benefits from doing so.Summary Eve Garrett, co partner in her family s security business, E.D.E.N., receives a mysterious message one night from her young friend Tiffany, saying the girl i I had a hard time getting into this book It wasn t until about halfway through that I was into it enough to want to keep reading I didn t necessarily think it was bad, it just didn t trip my switches.Series note I wouldn t necessarily say this series so far needs to be read in order, but there are probably benefits from doing so.Summary Eve Garrett, co partner in her family s security business, E.D.E.N., receives a mysterious message one night from her young friend Tiffany, saying the girl is in trouble But when Eve goes to help her, she almost gets killed instead Suddenly, not only is Tiffany apparently in trouble, but someone wants Eve dead as well As she starts to investigate, Eve runs into Tyler Mac McClain, a guy she had a one night stand with in high school He promised to call the next daybut never did and Eve has let the anger fester for all these years.When Mac sees Eve again, he s struck by the woman she s become, and by regret over how he treated her in high school He quickly realizes, though, that it will take a lot to get past the walls she s put up Thankfully, he ll have plenty of time to work on it as the two race sometimes separately, sometimes together to find Tiffany and avoid whoever wants Eve dead.Review From pretty early on, this book kinda bored me with the constant antagonism between Mac and Eve I like some angst in my romance, but 200 pages of these two battling back and forth got on my nerves I got tired of reading Eve s snarky comments about Mac Grant it, what he did to her was wrong, but it was 14 years ago He was a dumb guy doing what dumb guys tended to do at that age I just thought she was rather judgmental about him.Which made the romance rather flat for me It had some serious heat when it finally progressed to that part, but I felt like something was missing from the emotional connection between the two Like the just needed to seriously clear the air between them And one thing that really bugged me was how Eve s miscarriage after their one night stand in high school was treated It s a big secret she s keeping and at the end, all there is is a one paragraph summary saying that night she told him about the baby and they cried together Lame That issue deserved a lotspace.The storyline was okay I thought it flowed pretty well and the suspense was good There are definitely some dark elements to certain parts of the story the club Oracle thing I wasn t entirely into the whole spoiled rich girl Tiffany thing, but I ended up liking the poor girl SoI didn t think this book was as good as the first, but I didn t mind it It was mostly a character thing that bugged me I still plan to readof this series.WARNING, this book contains the near gang rape of a supporting character

    Thankfully, I liked this, the second book in Cindy Gerard s Bodyguard series, better than the first It didn t have any of the cheesy moments that stuck out in To the Edge, and there was definitely a lotgoing on, with plenty of twists and turns.Responding to a frantic call from her estranged friend, Tiffany, Eve Garret sister of Nolan from To the Edge finds herself on the wrong end of a violent attack, being told that she is dead but just doesn t know it yet.Very soon after, she discover Thankfully, I liked this, the second book in Cindy Gerard s Bodyguard series, better than the first It didn t have any of the cheesy moments that stuck out in To the Edge, and there was definitely a lotgoing on, with plenty of twists and turns.Responding to a frantic call from her estranged friend, Tiffany, Eve Garret sister of Nolan from To the Edge finds herself on the wrong end of a violent attack, being told that she is dead but just doesn t know it yet.Very soon after, she discovers that Tiffany is in fact missing, and Eve instinctively knows something is very wrong While looking for clues into Tiffany s possible whereabouts, Eve crosses paths with Tyler Mac McClain, the man to whom she lost her virginity 14 years ago, who has been hired to find Tiffany.To say that Eve and Mac s encounter 14 years ago ended badly would be an understatement, so it is no surprise that Eve wants nothing to do with Mac now But the threats and attempts on Eve s life keep coming, and Eve has a strange suspicion that they could somehow be connected to Tiffany s disappearance.Eve can look after herself, but Tiffany s safety must come before Eve s own agenda so she begrudgingly finds herself with Mac on a race across the country and against the clock.I was prepared not to like Mac after what he did to Eve when she was 18 I remember being 18, and being told by a guy that he loves you before taking your virginity, then being told that he ll call you tomorrow never to be seen or heard from him again would be pretty devastating But I also remember 18 year old boys, and Mac s behavior, while not acceptable, was hardly unique.There wasto this sad little tale, and the author made much of the secret Eve was keeping from Mac I was pretty disappointed in Gerard for making so much out of it and then blocking the reader from sharing the big reveal A brief sentence sayingLater that night, Eve told him about _________and providing no insight into the discussion was pretty poor form.Apart from that, I really enjoyed Eve and Mac s rediscovery of each other and watching Eve go from animosity to curiosity to acceptance of the attraction Mac was definitely a likeable character, complex, tough and human, and I appreciated that the author was realistic in her portrayal of his attitude to the encounter 18 years ago There was some great banter between these two.The suspense plot was pretty good in this one, with plenty of changes in location and some pretty nasty characters keeping it moving and keeping it interesting Some nice twists and turns and well developed secondary characters also added texture.Of course, if there can be one complaint when the suspense element is so strong, it is that the romance element often suffers and there were significantlypages devoted to the suspense plot that the romance.I find Ethan to be the most interesting in the Garret family, so I m really looking forward to his book, up next in To the Brink

    After a so so start, I really hoped this series would pick up pace, especially since the blurb promised a kick ass heroine Well, Eve was kick ass, but she was also annoying as hell.I hate it when authors cannot create some exciting tension between the leads without resorting to the almost nonexistent for so much use and cheep ploy as the big misunderstanding And I hate it evenwhen they let that misunderstanding fester and fester and go on ad infinitum, gobbling up the rest of the story After a so so start, I really hoped this series would pick up pace, especially since the blurb promised a kick ass heroine Well, Eve was kick ass, but she was also annoying as hell.I hate it when authors cannot create some exciting tension between the leads without resorting to the almost nonexistent for so much use and cheep ploy as the big misunderstanding And I hate it evenwhen they let that misunderstanding fester and fester and go on ad infinitum, gobbling up the rest of the story.Because the big misunderstanding used in this instance was so overdone it was pitiful Do you really expect me to believe a strong, resilient, self made, ex Secret Service woman would hold a grudge for fourteen years against the man who took her virginity and then never called her again It s been only ten years for me and if I met the guy on the street I wouldn t even recognize him But that s real life for you In real life I don t even remember his name, he was Dutch, I think And even that s pretty much TMI for those reading this review.As I said, that s what happens in real life In Romancelandia I d have a voodoo doll stashed in my apartment full of needles, wishing the pox on the poor soul.I loved the hero, though He was quirky, funny, truly a triple A, and probably something along the lines of faccia da schiaffi as the Italians would put it But I loved him to bits Pity he got the annoying end of the stick in the heroine department.Again, kudos for the mystery, though the reader is again left without the pertinent clues and the big reveal comes with a huge huh factor And the Tiffany scenes were redundant if you ask me, put in to stretch the almost nonexistent plot for a couplepages.A disappointing excuse for a book, if you ask me

    Wasn t sure about Mac in the beginning he came across as a bit of a bum but I soon warmed to him and learnt that he was a loveable rogue and although he wasn t written as the Typical Alpha male he was definately a sexy one.I liked Eve as she was a down to earth woman who had been hurt by men including Mac in the past and found it hard to trust men They were definately well suited and I was glad to see them get their HEA.


  10. Glamdring Glamdring says:

    Though the plot waspredictable than in To the Edge, this was a fast paced and action packed story Here again I really loved Eve and Mac, the secondary characters were great and the attraction between Eve and Mac was hot But what I enjoyed the most in this story is that even though she had many occasion to act TSTL, Eve was never reckless or stupid I also liked how Cindy Gerard described Mac and Ali s relationship Poor Mac, I hurt for him.

    Thankfully, I liked this, the second book in Cindy Gerard s Bodyguard series, better than the first It didn t have any of the cheesy moments that stuck out in To the Edge, and there was definitely a lotgoing on, with plenty of twists and turns.Responding to a frantic call from her estranged friend, Tiffany, Eve Garret sister of Nolan from To the Edge finds herself on the wrong end of a violent attack, being told that she is dead but just doesn t know it yet.Very soon after, she discover Thankfully, I liked this, the second book in Cindy Gerard s Bodyguard series, better than the first It didn t have any of the cheesy moments that stuck out in To the Edge, and there was definitely a lotgoing on, with plenty of twists and turns.Responding to a frantic call from her estranged friend, Tiffany, Eve Garret sister of Nolan from To the Edge finds herself on the wrong end of a violent attack, being told that she is dead but just doesn t know it yet.Very soon after, she discovers that Tiffany is in fact missing, and Eve instinctively knows something is very wrong While looking for clues into Tiffany s possible whereabouts, Eve crosses paths with Tyler Mac McClain, the man to whom she lost her virginity 14 years ago, who has been hired to find Tiffany.To say that Eve and Mac s encounter 14 years ago ended badly would be an understatement, so it is no surprise that Eve wants nothing to do with Mac now But the threats and attempts on Eve s life keep coming, and Eve has a strange suspicion that they could somehow be connected to Tiffany s disappearance.Eve can look after herself, but Tiffany s safety must come before Eve s own agenda so she begrudgingly finds herself with Mac on a race across the country and against the clock.I was prepared not to like Mac after what he did to Eve when she was 18 I remember being 18, and being told by a guy that he loves you before taking your virginity, then being told that he ll call you tomorrow never to be seen or heard from him again would be pretty devastating But I also remember 18 year old boys, and Mac s behavior, while not acceptable, was hardly unique.There wasto this sad little tale, and the author made much of the secret Eve was keeping from Mac I was pretty disappointed in Gerard for making so much out of it and then blocking the reader from sharing the big reveal A brief sentence sayingLater that night, Eve told him about _________and providing no insight into the discussion was pretty poor form.Apart from that, I really enjoyed Eve and Mac s rediscovery of each other and watching Eve go from animosity to curiosity to acceptance of the attraction Mac was definitely a likeable character, complex, tough and human, and I appreciated that the author was realistic in her portrayal of his attitude to the encounter 18 years ago There was some great banter between these two.The suspense plot was pretty good in this one, with plenty of changes in location and some pretty nasty characters keeping it moving and keeping it interesting Some nice twists and turns and well developed secondary characters also added texture.Of course, if there can be one complaint when the suspense element is so strong, it is that the romance element often suffers and there were significantlypages devoted to the suspense plot that the romance.I find Ethan to be the most interesting in the Garret family, so I m really looking forward to his book, up next in To the Brink

    After a so so start, I really hoped this series would pick up pace, especially since the blurb promised a kick ass heroine Well, Eve was kick ass, but she was also annoying as hell.I hate it when authors cannot create some exciting tension between the leads without resorting to the almost nonexistent for so much use and cheep ploy as the big misunderstanding And I hate it evenwhen they let that misunderstanding fester and fester and go on ad infinitum, gobbling up the rest of the story After a so so start, I really hoped this series would pick up pace, especially since the blurb promised a kick ass heroine Well, Eve was kick ass, but she was also annoying as hell.I hate it when authors cannot create some exciting tension between the leads without resorting to the almost nonexistent for so much use and cheep ploy as the big misunderstanding And I hate it evenwhen they let that misunderstanding fester and fester and go on ad infinitum, gobbling up the rest of the story.Because the big misunderstanding used in this instance was so overdone it was pitiful Do you really expect me to believe a strong, resilient, self made, ex Secret Service woman would hold a grudge for fourteen years against the man who took her virginity and then never called her again It s been only ten years for me and if I met the guy on the street I wouldn t even recognize him But that s real life for you In real life I don t even remember his name, he was Dutch, I think And even that s pretty much TMI for those reading this review.As I said, that s what happens in real life In Romancelandia I d have a voodoo doll stashed in my apartment full of needles, wishing the pox on the poor soul.I loved the hero, though He was quirky, funny, truly a triple A, and probably something along the lines of faccia da schiaffi as the Italians would put it But I loved him to bits Pity he got the annoying end of the stick in the heroine department.Again, kudos for the mystery, though the reader is again left without the pertinent clues and the big reveal comes with a huge huh factor And the Tiffany scenes were redundant if you ask me, put in to stretch the almost nonexistent plot for a couplepages.A disappointing excuse for a book, if you ask me

    Wasn t sure about Mac in the beginning he came across as a bit of a bum but I soon warmed to him and learnt that he was a loveable rogue and although he wasn t written as the Typical Alpha male he was definately a sexy one.I liked Eve as she was a down to earth woman who had been hurt by men including Mac in the past and found it hard to trust men They were definately well suited and I was glad to see them get their HEA.

    Though the plot waspredictable than in To the Edge, this was a fast paced and action packed story Here again I really loved Eve and Mac, the secondary characters were great and the attraction between Eve and Mac was hot But what I enjoyed the most in this story is that even though she had many occasion to act TSTL, Eve was never reckless or stupid I also liked how Cindy Gerard described Mac and Ali s relationship Poor Mac, I hurt for him.
