My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Thrilling book from beginning to end. I am so glad Cynthia is back to writing romantic suspense. From the opening scene of the heroine Juliana James being held captive in Mexico and her ex-lover Logan Quinn who’s now part of a Elite Ops covert agent group rescuing her to the final showdown with the man called El Diablo you are on the edge of your seat.

The other Elite force agents were great secondary characters and we got a glimps as to what some of there stories are going to be in future books.

The Last Chance bar was Veronica Lane's last hope. Desperate to find her missing brother, the sheltered computer programmer turned to Jasper Adams--the man she'd been warned to stay far away from. Veronica knew she was putting her life into the hands of the former Army Ranger, who aroused desire she had to resist at all costs. Posing as a ruthless mercenary was a cover for what Jasper was really doing: hunting a killer. And Veronica was in the line of fire. The soldier-turned-elite-ops-agent knew he was playing a dangerous game--trying to win her trust while deceiving her about his true mission. What would happen once Veronica discovered that everything about him was a lie...everything except his passion for her?

Guardian Ranger by Cynthia Eden

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

An equal blend of mystery, suspense and romance.

In the first book in the series we find out that someone is killing EOD agents. All of the evidence so far points to Cale Lane, which has brought the Shadow Agents to the small Texas town where his sister lives.

Veronica Lane hasn’t heard from her brother in 6 months. No matter what kind of missions he was on he always managed to contact during his time away. When she finds out that one his is army ranger buddies is at the town bar she decides to go and ask him for help in figuring out what could have happened to her brother.

Jasper Adams came to town posing as a mercenary hoping to get information on Cale and also knowing that Cale loved his sister that he would eventually show up. What he had not counted on was Veronica coming to him for help and his libido to sudden kick in on wanting things he knew he had no business wanting being the type of man he was. He also knew even if he did start something with Veronica it would go very far once she found out he was lying to her about why he was really there.

The whole team is back and when more murders start to happen that still point to Cale they are in a race to try and stop him before someone else is killed. But things are not always as they seem and with Veronica’s determination to prove her brother isn’t the killer brings up a lot of questions and also keeps putting her life in danger.

Will the team and Jasper figure out what is really going on before more agents or Veronica is killed?? The mystery was a good one in this book and keeps you guessing till towards the end.

I have to say that the build up between Gunner and Sydney is hot. I am totally expecting there book to rock!!

 

Two years ago Gunner Ortez saved Sydney Sloan's life on a mission gone wrong. And ever since then, he's been watching her back. Now a hostage-rescue mission is about to blow the Elite Ops agents' lives apart once again.  Working side by side back in the jungles of Peru, the heat between Sydney and Gunner is hotter than ever-and so are the threats to their lives. With the danger escalating, Sydney knows Gunner is her only hope at successfully completing their assignment. But the ex-SEAL who arouses passion she'd only dreamed about also poses the greatest risk to the secret she carries in her heart...and in her belly.

Sharpshooter by Cynthia Eden

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Another great addition Shadow Agents series. I love that from the first chapter the action starts and just keeps going till the end in every book.

This was Gunner and Sydney’s story. We knew from previous books that Sydney was engaged to Gunner’s half brother but that he died on a mission in Peru gone wrong two years ago. Gunner has always loved Sydney from afar but never made a move out of loyalty to his brother. Now once he finally does he and Syd are sent back to Peru on a mission that ends up with a shock.

I think to tell much more about this book would give away too many spoilers. I’ve loved all the books in this series and this one was no exception. Looking forward to Cale’s books next.

Cale Lane had his orders: keep Cassidy Sherridan alive at all costs. But who sent six armed men storming the Rio ballroom to take her out? The gorgeous party girl wasn't giving it up. Now he had a more urgent mission: uncover Cassidy's secrets...one by one. Cassidy didn't need the former Texas Ranger to play hero and blow her cover. Using herself as bait was the first step in bringing a killer to justice. How could she do that with Cale shadowing her every move...and awakening feelings that tempted her to put her life-and heart-on the line?

Glitter and Gunfire by Cynthia Eden

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

All the right ingredients where here but it just wasnt as strong as the previous books.

Cale Lane was once suspected of being a killer of EOD agents when it was found out he was being framed. This was from the 2nd book in the series. Since then the anticipation of waiting for his story was even more exciting when it was told who his heroine was going to be at the end of the third book. Mercer is the boss of all the EOD agents and when he puts Cale in charge of keeping Cassidy Sherridan safe in Rio you know there has to be a connection between Mercer and Cassidy and boy was there. With the complexities of all three characters I felt there should have been a more in depth look at each of their histories to see how they all got to this point in there lives. We are given enough to get the jest but it was all so rushed – everything felt rushed in this book – the romance, the conflict, the telling of Mercer’s tragic past.

I was happy to get to know more about Mercer and how that all tied into the main plot of this book but was left feeling a little unsatisfied by the end of the book. Hopefully this was just a one off and the next book in the series will get back to the exciting action series it is.
