5 STARS for Cherry Adair's "The Mercenary"


Victoria Jones was a lousy liar. Not that the sensible bookkeeper was accustomed to lying--or anything else that would have disrupted her safe, dull existence. But her world took a terrifying turn when her twin brother, Alex, an agent for T-FLAC, the elite antiterrorist task force, went missing.
Now she'll do anything to find him...lie, cheat, even subject herself to the predatory advances of Alex's T-FLAC partner, Marc Savin, if it will help get her brother home safe.
But trusting the sexy, brooding operative might just be the risk of a lifetime.
The Mercenary is back, and better than ever!


****************************************************************************************************

Torie (Victoria) has lost her twin brother to a terrorist group in a very dangerous country.  She goes to this place pretending to be a tourist and bites off more then she can chew.  She’s assaulted and makes it out alive.  She goes to find her brother’s best friend for help and he brings her back to the danger that surrounds her brother.  She’s terrified and he’s surely.  Will they come out of it alive??? MUST READ!

I really like the characters in this book, they have real personalities and the way each of them reacts to any given situation is believable.  Victoria is scared shitless of everything around her but overcomes her fear in the sight of danger.  Marc is a brooding and very Alfa male, sometimes I wanted to knock him upside the head but liked him just the same.  Though he was a cranky man he had some redeeming qualities.

I love a lot of action in a story and this one was filled with it.  I am really enjoying the suspense of this series, I never know where the characters are going to end up or how they’ll fight their way oput of each mess.  I am looking forward to the next book.
