Taking Fire by Cindy Gerard

Book Description

Betrayal. Retribution. Redemption?

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?

Taking Fire (Book 4)

Taking Fire is the fourth book in Cindy Gerard's One-Eyed Jacks series, featuring the last of the One-Eyed Jacks, Bobby Taggart.  I LOVED this 
series and was also glad to get cameos from her Black Ops. series.  Each book can be read as a stand-alone, but this series is so GOOD that I fully recommend reading ALL of them.  Especially concerning Bobby's book because it takes place before AND after the One-Eyed Jacks reunite. 


Six years ago in Kabal, while working for a private military company, Bobby Taggart met a woman, fell in love, and then she disappeared from his life.  All within a week.  Bobby never expects to see Talia again and is shocked to see her at the United States Embassy in Oman, right before it is bombed.


For six years, Talia Levine has carried the guilt of her betrayal.  She had a choice between her heart or her mission, and she made it at the sacrifice of her heart.  But her real identity wasn't the only thing she has kept for Bobby.  Bobby has held on to his hurt and (believed) hatred for the woman that made him fall in love and  And when a terrorist attacks the US Embassy in Oman, she has no choice but to put her complete trust in the man that she betrayed six years ago.  

And as the threat closes in around them, more secrets come to light.


Will Bobby be able to move past Talia's betrayal and secrets in order to be with the woman he fell in love with six years ago.  And will Talia be able to put her complete trust in Bobby to be the man she needs?   

Cindy Gerard is the queen of action-packed romantic suspense novels and Taking Fire is no different.  I really loved reading Bobby and Talia's story and how they had to overcome their past for a chance for a future together.
