Publisher's Summary

In New York Times best-selling author Cindy Gerard's sizzling new novel, a ruthless international conspiracy is no match for the irresistible alpha heroes of Black Ops, Inc.

A race for survival...

Bold, blonde Defense Intelligence officer B. J. Chase isn't exactly thrilled when she's summoned from personal leave to investigate an alarming national security breach - until the suspicious death of a government official blows her covert mission sky-high.

Turns into a pulse-pounding adventure...

Gorgeous Black Ops bad boy Raphael Mendoza always feared his family's dark history would haunt him. But he never expected it might hold the key to dismantling a rogue weapons system. Now with cool B. J. Chase posing as his hot babe fiancée, he returns to his uncle in Colombia to convince him he can be trusted with the family's dirtiest business secrets.

And ignites a passionate fire.

Carrying out a deception among ruthless killers brings Rafe and B.J. too close to ignore the smoldering heat between them. Now, they must work together as the closest of partners as the countdown to international catastrophe closes in.

The narrator... OMG!

Who thought this guy was a good choice for a narrator? So overly-dramatic, poorly paced, it’s torturous to listen to!

good story but horrible narration.

The female characters all sound like six-year-olds and occasionally have a Southern accent which I'm not sure was the intent. it's hard to picture a strong female NSA agent who sounds like a chipmunk. The narration was over-the-top at many times which made it very difficult to listen to.

Terrible

I tried since it's a series, but couldn't finish it. The narrator was so bad!! He could make ordering a pizza sound silly! His inflections are in all the wrong places. Everything sounds sarcastic or overly dramatic.

Narrator's performance detracts

The narrator's performance brought to mind Derek Jacobi's guest appearance on Frasier; I think the term is "chewing the scenery". The story is as compelling as previous titles in the series.

Disliked the narrator!

this is the book I disliked the most! the narrator was the wrong choice for this series. he had great emotion, voice changes, and inflection but not for this group of characters. it was a struggle to make it through to the end!

I couldn’t finish it.

It was VERY difficult to listen to. It may be a good story, but the narrator stressed words that didn’t need to be. The voices were either had too much whine or “tough guy”.

Why don’t authors make better researchs?

Although I Iiked the book in general, I couldn’t bear every time, and there are many, that Mendoza calls BJ ‘cara’ as a term of endearment. Doesn’t Cindy Gerard know that ‘cara’ is Italian and not Spanish? Come on! You just have to google it. As a Spaniard myself I get tired of the Americans mixing Spanish and Italian as if they were the same thing. Two different countries, two different languages. Not that difficult!

Great story - bad narration

I loved the story, just as I have the other books in this series, but the narration is horrible. He is terribly overdramatic and almost comical at times with the exageration.

Decent book, poor narration.

I've read these before, so I was enjoying listening to them on audio. I enjoyed reading Rafe and BJ's story, but I almost gave up listening to it. The narration doesn't fit the characters at all. When I saw who was narrating, I was surprised. He narrates a series of books that I enjoy immensely, because his voice fits those characters. So I was disappointed in this one.

fabulous narration

this is the first book I've had the pleasure of listening to by Shannon Gunn, the passion, expression and emotion he put into his performance was excellent. He did a brilliant job of changing his performance for all the various characters including the female ones. I would have no hesitation in recommending him or the book. this book in the series has been my favourite so far, I love a brave heroine and BJ has nerves of steel and BOI does she make an impression on the tough guy falling for her.

Fabulous Narrator!

Well well well that was exciting. Thanks to the wonderful narration/performance by Shannon Gunn. Loved the accents, the pacing, the over the top performances of the sex scenes, that made me laugh out loud, but didn’t detract from heat of the scenes. The story had lots of action, banter and passion.
Loved it. Will be searching out more books narrated by Mr Gunn.

awesome plot

Cindy really outdoes herself when it comes to plotline. the twists and turns and suspense is superb. I'm surprised she hasn't drawn better known narrators.
JF Harding is the most known whereas Douglas and now Shannon hasn't been on my radar.
it's great to have the BOI men find their ladies and like nate, green is a secondary romance in this book...but it's nice to have the story set for future novels.
I enjoy the international espionage and the base of the ops.
BJ is brilliantly strong and does some good redeeming but Rafe has a point about what he discovers about her just before the climax of the story.
But this is where Cindy stumbles, Rafe is described in all her books as a tough, strong, deadly character. To have him act the way he does toward his heroine is confusing and doesn't quite gel. again this could be change of narrator.
Then there are a few security issues that hiccup the story. then toward the end, the romance side is kind of sped up and becomes choppy ...
Now to Shannon, I'm guessing he was cast due to his ability for the Spanish accent. maybe douglas and JF couldn't do it?
just guessing though.
I'm in torture at the moment. his voice as Rafe reminds me of Antonio Banderas...in the movie Puss In Boots...which is comical...but this book is not .
Shannon has great tone and inflection for the angst in this story so I hate to be negative but i think Rafe needed someone with a sterner, darker gravelly type voice. someone like Aaron Shedlock or Sebastian York.
Rafe is so deadly but Shannon just doesn't sell him. all other male voices and the plotline are good. he does make the girl voices sound bimboish though.
still i enjoy the military style ops and I'll continue on to other books.
