See, her sister was last seen in the company of Romero, the aforementioned drug lord, so Delanie knows he's kidnapped her sister and is helding her captive somewhere - she doesn't know where, but she's going to find out! Delanie's plan to find her sister is quite simple: she somehow catches Romero's interest, even though he's gay, moves into his compound and goes jogging around the area searching for her sister every night. *rolls eyeballs* Things get a little sticky when Kyle Wright enters the picture, because Kyle and Delanie had a one night stand - or should I say, a three night sex marathon - four years ago and they don't know what to think of each other's presence at Romero's compound. Kyle's actually a T-FLAC agent who's about to close the secret mission he's worked for the last four years, and he's less than thrilled to find Delanie involved with Romero. Do I have to say she does jeopardize Kyle's mission and four years of hard work goes down the drain because of her?
The guards on the estate know she's the pretend sex toy of the super scary psychopath so they leave her alone to wander about the estate poking into all the nooks and crannies. Kyle has been working undercover since he left Delanie and when he sees the innocent blonde calmly sitting next to one of the most dangerous men in the world, he's adamant she leave immediately. Dr. Kyle Wright has been working undercover for so long that he has nearly forgotten who he is. When he tells her to stay put, she wanders, when he tells her to meet him somewhere, she pops up at a different location, when he tells her to hide, she of course bumps into the bad guys and ruins four years of undercover work. His patience and understanding knows no bounds until the last part of the book. When Delanie and Kyle find her sister I was finally okay with her worry and protectiveness. Her sister was in pretty bad shape and of course I would choose to be with her, but Kyle suddenly draws a line in the sand and it's either now or never.
I liked Adair's "Kiss and Tell" even though it was an absurd premise. It's absolutely clear though (and the hero brings this up at one point) that taking care of everyone and making them dependent on you is NOT a virtue. I'm grooving on the suspense romance genre, but I do know a lot more of it falls in the "Hide and Seek" category, rather than "Kiss and Tell". If anyone has any suggestions within this genre, I'd love to know them.
#3 T-FLAC - Romantic Suspense Kyle Wright and Delanie Eastman Wow, this one rang a whole bunch of my reading pleasure bells: * Exotic location (jungles of South America, complete with the sounds of tropical birds and screaming monkeys); * International Crime Lord villan living in a secluded luxury compound; * Bio-Terror sub-plot - because it's unusual; * Meticulously laid plans of deep undercover good guy agent posing as a bad guy; * Multiple sexy, hunky good guy agents. Montoya's mother, a criminal in her own right, and that whole sub-plot was just OK, but it could have been left out imo.
There is no way that most of what happens in this book could possibly take place, especially the parts that have Kyle not knowing anything about Lauren or Delaine's involvement with Montero. Her father used her mother for a 10 year affair and grandfather was someone Delanie also needed to take care of. She comes face to face with Kyle, a man she met, and had a wild sexual weekend with, 4 years ago. He finds himself on an op that is supposed to shut down Montero's operation permanently when he comes face to face with Delanie, his weekend fling from years ago, whom he couldn't quite seem to get over.
Am slowly backtracking and reading this T-Flac series. the only negative here for me was I think Delanie was too she-man when they are in the forest fighting off the baddies. I loved Kyle...right down to his impatience with Delanie and the choice he sometimes has to make between his duty and her was worked into the story well without making an OTT production of it.
Another thing that didn't work for me in this book were the too many OTT scenes.
Its more or less the same kind of plot, terrorists and drug dealers as villains, a special operations hero and an innocent heroine caught in the middle. Well this heroine got herself in the middle by going in search of her sister who was on more than friendly terms with the villain. So how come we have a scene of the heroine having to grovel to the hero because of that?
I'd recognize those tits anywhere." LOL I don't know why but that totally made me bust out and I just knew I was gonna have a good time with Delanie and Kyle. I really liked both Delanie and Kyle even though they drove me a little crazy. I wasn't sure if I wanted to kiss him or smack him for most of the book but still I had such a good time with these two as crazy as that sounds.
Delanie sacrifices her own safety in order to find her missing sister Lauren, but when an ex-lover Kyle shows up unexpectedly into the mix, it makes things very complicated.
